Windows 7 represents a significant improvement over past Windows operating systems. However, if you don’t understand how to use this latest version of Windows properly, you will miss out on a number of goodies that’ll help you work more proficiently.
By mastering a few simple tricks, you can get the most out of Windows 7.
- Coping images to a CD or DVD is easy with Windows 7. Just double click the image, and choose the drive that contains your blank disk. Select the burn option and Windows 7 takes it from there!
- Effortlessly find and repair problems. If your operating system is acting oddly, simply click the “Control Panel” option. From there, you can click on “troubleshooting” to access a number of wizards which will remedy commonplace operating problems. For example cleaning up systems that are slowed by too much adware and other clutter.
- What if you have younger members of your family who insist upon installing cumbersome software onto your computer? Install an excessive amount of this software, and your computer will become a slow mess. Fortunately, Windows 7 has the AppLocker feature. This feature allows you to run and install only programs with your pre-approval. For example, you can tell AppLocker to only run programs created by reputable companies such as Microsoft. If your kids attempt to install a program from an unknown publisher, AppLocker will prevent it.
- Windows 7 comes with its own power efficiency service. This lets you access reams of data regarding how much energy your laptop is consuming. This can be important if you are working from a remote location and are not in the vicinity of a charging source.
