  1. Windows 10 Hot Corners

    Why oah why don't we have hot corners in Windows 10? My Apple and Linux systems have had this for almost 10 years. For multitasking you throw your mouse in the corner and all your sessions are displayed in front of you. They are shown as large windows you can easily pick to rapidly move from one program to the next. On Apple it's called Expose and on Linux it's called Compiz.

    I just finished upgrading and still on Win10 I have to go to the taskbar, pick some tiny icon of firefox, wait for it to display my open sessions, then pick another tiny session square, then I get to my program. The is clunky and cumbersome and slow. Steve Jobs was right when he said Windows designer just don't have any class. Hunting for the "task view" to accomplish this same feat is nowhere near as fast and elegant as a hot corner either.

    If you think a hot corner is too sensitive and too easily activated you're too sloppy with your mouse. I've been using them forever with no issues.

  2. Windows 10 hot buttons in corner not working


    To resolve this problem, use the inbox Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool.

    • Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap
      Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click
      Search. Type Command Prompt in the Search box, right-click
      Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click
    • Type the following command, and then press Enter.

      It may take several minutes for the command operation to be completed.
      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
      Important When you run this command, DISM uses Windows Update to provide the files that are required to fix corruptions. However, if your Windows Update client is already broken, use a running Windows installation as the repair source, or use a
      Windows side-by-side folder from a network share or from a removable media, such as the Windows DVD, as the source of the files. To do this, run the following command instead:
      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAccess
      Note Replace the C:\RepairSource\Windows placeholder with the location of your repair source. For more information about using the DISM tool to repair Windows, reference

      Repair a Windows Image
    • Close the command prompt, restart the computer and check.

    Hope this helps

    And Alt-Winkey for the virtual desktops. Windows had always been more about shortcut keys.

    On the other hand the OP might want to think about getting a Mac. I like my MacBook Pro quite a bit.
