Controlling Windows 7

Sunday, January 25th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

Controlling Windows 7

Microsoft received a lot of feedback from its users in regards to showing plenty of alerts and messages when using different versions of Windows. Because of that, Windows 7 has been designed in such a way that users are able to take control over the messages they want to see. That’s right, when you use Windows 7, you’re the only one in control. And it’s all thanks to the Action Center. Keep reading to learn even more!

Even if you don’t change a thing, you’ll still see fewer notifications and icons on your screen, because the Action Center consolidates alerts from 10 Windows features, including the Security Center and Windows Defender.

Rather than popping up with a message in the lower right hand corner of your screen, if Windows 7 needs your attention, you’ll see an Action Center icon and you can then find out more by clicking on it. If you don’t have time to look at the alert immediately, the Action Center will keep the information for you to address later.

That’s it. Just another great feature coming to you soon in the new Windows 7 operating system. Enjoy!
