Features From Windows 7 Still Exist in Windows 10

Windows 10 includes features from Windows 7 that still exist. They are: - Shake - Peek - Transparent taskbar - Snap - Fading in and out for opening programs - Pinning programs to the taskbar Except: - Flip 3D - Desktop Gadgets - HomeGroup Quickly moving the window back and forth or pressing WINDOWS LOGO + HOME on a program will minimize all open windows. The keyboard shortcut to Peek has changed. Press and hold WINDOWS LOGO + , (comma) to peek through the desktop. Pressing WINDOWS LOGO + TAB opens Task View for virtual desktops, switching between programs, and opening websites from Timeline. Pressing WINDOWS LOGO + LEFT ARROW/RIGHT ARROW or moving a window to the left or right will tile it. You can also do it on another window. You can tile four windows by using Snap now. Moving a window to the top of the screen maximises it. NOTE: Windows 8 and later versions no longer include Desktop Gadgets due to security vulnerabilities. Windows 10 April 2018 Update and later no longer includes HomeGroup. However, you can still share folders with another users by configuring the sharing settings through File Explorer. Or you can access another user's computer from a network to work with folders.
