Minimize all but the active window.
Maximize window—this is probably just as easy to do with Aero by dragging the window header to the top of the screen or just double-clicking it.
Stretch the window to the top and bottom of the screen.
Move a window from one monitor to another—this one is a little complicated, but if you use multiple monitors, it pays off.
Lock the system—i.e., log out and require a log-in to use the system.
Show display and projector options.
Open Windows Mobility Center—You may not even know there's such a thing as the Mobility Center, but it gives easy access to things like screen brightness and volume. It also lets presenters turn on an external display.

New Windows Interface.

After the unpopular Windows 8 interface, Microsoft has crafted a start menu that is more accessible and usable than before.

Microsoft Edge Browser

Microsoft created Edge to catch up with Chrome and Firefox. Microsoft has built its new browser from the ground up to be more responsive and secure.
