My primary computers are Macs and their primary operating system is OS X, so one of the things I disliked the most about going back to Windows was its window management. Features like Snap were handy, but it was hard to live without features like Mission Control. And once you get used to OS X’s trackpad gestures, it’s hard to move to a platform where basic things like “two-finger scrolling” can be flaky and inconsistent.

Windows 10 catches up in some important ways—it’s got a Mission Control replacement in Task View, can give you multiple virtual desktops to work with, and implements Mac-like trackpad gestures (alongside keyboard shortcuts) to help you use it all.

Support

If you’re new to Windows 10, here’s your guide to using these shortcuts and gestures, and what kind of hardware you’ll need to use them.

Trackpad gestures and Precision Touchpads

Three-finger swipe left/rightSwitch between open windows. If you hold your fingers to the trackpad as you swipe, you'll be able to select different windows via the Alt-Tab switcher.

Getting accustomed to the multitouch trackpad gestures is key to effective window management in OS X. Using a combination of swipes and Full Screen mode on a 13-inch MacBook eases the pain of moving away from a multi-monitor workstation.

Windows 10 finally implements comparable gestures, a nice upgrade over Windows 8’s more limited edge swipes. The downside is that you need specific hardware to use the gestures—for now, they’re only enabled on PCs that support Windows’ Precision Touchpad spec. This requires not just compatible multitouch trackpad hardware, but special firmware and Microsoft certification. In other words, at least as of this writing, it’s not something you can enable with a simple driver update, though for more recent systems your OEM may choose to mimic the gestures in their own drivers.

This spec was only introduced in Windows 8.1, and because it’s optional very few PCs actually support it at the moment. The list includes the Type Cover trackpads for the Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3, and Dell’s most recent XPS 13 (another reason why we think it’s the PC laptop to beat right at the moment). To see if your computer includes a Precision Touchpad, check in the Settings under “Devices” and then “Mouse and Touchpad.”

Hopefully Precision Touchpads will become more common as designed-for-Windows-10 hardware begins to land in stores this fall. Supporting these gestures will give OEMs a small competitive advantage over those that don’t, and even if you don’t care about trackpad gestures the fact remains that Precision Touchpads are generally more accurate and reliable than ones using standard drivers from the likes of Synaptics and Alps.

Let’s assume your PC doesn’t include a Precision Touchpad, because hey, it probably doesn’t. If you want to use the new window management stuff quickly without resorting to dragging your mouse pointer around on the screen, the keyboard shortcuts are nearly as useful for people who bother to learn them (and they can do a few things, like creating and switching between virtual desktops, that the trackpad gestures can't).

This isn't the complete list of keyboard shortcuts in Windows, but they’re the most important ones when it comes to general window management.
