slide2

When Windows 7 was launched, it came with an array of features intended to fill the gaps left by Windows Vista.

slide3

Designed to be an easy migration from XP or Vista, many users upgrading from those versions simply began using Windows 7 without looking into these new features.

slide6

Desktops get cluttered with a surplus of open windows during a busy day’s work. Windows 7 includes a feature to make closing them easy.

  • Move the mouse or other pointing device back and forth rapidly to “shake” the open window vigorously.
slide8
All the other open windows except the one you’re shaking will simultaneously minimize and appear on the superbar.
slide9

To expand the closed windows, grab the title bar with the click-hold and give the window another shake.

slide11

If you’re the one in the office everybody turns to when something goes wrong with their computer, here’s a Windows 7 feature that will come in handy.

The Problem Steps Recorder (PSR) captures steps that lead to trouble and saves them as a ZIP file for emailing or later troubleshooting.

slide13

The user can open the control panel and select "Record steps to reproduce a problem,"then enter the keystrokes or mouse actions that caused the unexpected result.

slide14

The PSR records the sequence of events into a slide show and saves it as a ZIP.

This makes it easier for tech support or helpful friends to backtrack and undo the problem.

slide15

One of the most nagging aspects of Windows Vista was the User Account Control (UAC) that made you respond to a security notification every time you tried to change anything at the system level.

slide16

If you’re tired of answering those nagging questions, you’ll be happy to know that the Windows 7 version of UAC can be fine-tuned to reduce those security confirmation prompts—or turn them off altogether.

slide17

The UAC control panel includes a “comfort level” slider to adjust the degree of security notifications you’ll have to put up with, ranging from “Always Notify”to “Never Notify.”

Simply right-click on the .iso file and select “Burn Disc Image.”

  • The Windows Disc Image Burner opens, asks whether you’re making a CD or a DVD, and the deed is done.
slide23

Many users don't know Windows 7 offers a simple (and free) voice recognition tool that provides speech-to-text functionality.
