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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
Windows 7 includes full ISO burning support.
