Windows 7 has several features that make it a great improvement over earlier systems. However, like most things, if you are unaware of all these features you could be missing out.
By mastering a few simple tricks, you can get the most out of Windows 7.
- If you wish to move images to outside disks, you can now achieve this simply with Windows 7. The operating system lets you burn ISO images onto CDs or DVDs. To do this, you simply have to double-click on the ISO image, tell Windows 7 the drive that holds your blank disc, and click on the “burn” option. Windows 7 will do the rest.
- Finding and repairing problems is very simple with Windows 7. If you feel as if your OS is performing oddly pick the “troubleshooting” option from the “Control Panel”. This gives you access to a number of wizards that will help you remove clutter and tidy up your system.
- What if you have younger members of your family who insist on installing cumbersome software onto your computer? Install an excessive amount of this software, and your computer will turn into a sluggish mess. Fortunately, Windows 7 has the AppLocker feature. This feature enables you to run and install only programs with your pre-approval. For instance, 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.
- One great feature for people who work remotely is its power efficiency service. It’s easy to get details about the amount of power your laptop is using, which may be important when you are working on a project and are far from a power source.
