Here's the scenario: You open that rectangular present sitting under the Christmas tree. One whiff of that new tablet smell and you know it’s going to be great. You quickly power it up, get it on Wi-Fi, set up Facebook, login to Netflix and play around for a while.

Then you set it down to go do other things, and that's about as far as you go with learning what your tablet can do. (Note: Here are 10-must have apps for your new tablet.) While some people don't really need to know more than this, it really helps when you do. Here are five tricks your tablet can do that will make using it so much better.

Before we get to those, we're going to be covering iPad and Android tablets, but those aren't the only tablets available. Windows 10 tablets are also on the market, including our own amazing KomandoTab2 with its 10.1-inch touch screen, 32GB of storage (expandable to 96GB with a microSD card) and a convenient keyboard case included.

However, because these tablets run Windows 10, you're probably be more familiar with what they can do. As long as you know what Windows 10 apps to install, you should be fine with the essential tricks every computer user should know.

Not sure if you should get a Windows 10 tablet? See how they compare to their Android and Apple competitors.
