Supertest: Get more from your laptop!
Configure your laptop to make it more productive and straightforward to use with our essential tips, tweaks and techniques.
One of the drawbacks of Windows’ most compelling feature – its versatility – is that it’s set up to cater for as wide an audience as possible. You can start using it straight away, but as you become more familiar with how your laptop works, you might start to experience frustration at the way things are done.
Here’s the good news: that compelling, versatile feature also allows you to use Windows in a variety of different ways. Instead of adapting the way you work, you can actually customise and tweak your laptop’s settings to suit you. And in this feature we’ll show you exactly how to do that. You’ll discover how to set up Windows to work the way you want it to, from configuring the desktop so your favourite programs and frequently accessed files are just a click or two away to creating your own customised shortcuts. You’ll even be able to remap certain keys so they perform the functions you want them to rather than what your laptop manufacturer envisaged.
