Find pi with Your Windows 7 Calculator

I love Easter Eggs! They’re little tricks built into software that can do both useful (and sometimes useless) things. Well, today we’re going to learn about one for the Windows 7 calculator.

What you need to do is to open the Windows 7 calculator by clicking Start and typing calc into the Search box. Hit Enter or click the calculator icon that appears in the list…


This will open up the calculator. Now, click on View and choose Scientific. Alternately, you can press Alt+2 to enable scientific mode.


Once in scientific mode, press the letter P on your keyboard.

Boom! There’s Pi!


It may not be an incredible, life-altering event in anyone’s life, but I still think it’s pretty cool!

Give it a try today, Windows 7 users!
