Thursday, December 10th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Desktop Enhancement

Windows 7 in simple is making your PC simplified. It has better ways to find and manage files, help you speed through everyday tasks, and is designed for faster and more reliable performance. We shall explore through some of these features in this article.


You can share your music, pictures and documents from your home computers with HomeGroup that is available in Windows 7. Even domain joined computers can be part of your HomeGroup.



Having created a HomeGroup, you can share devices and libraries in your home as well including videos and printers. You can find your HomeGroup in the Explorer`s navigation panel.

Jump Lists:

You can access your documents, pictures or songs directly using Jump Lists. You have to hold your mouse over a program on the taskbar. If you do this on Windows Media Player it will list the commonly played tunes. You can also see Windows Live Writer Jump Lists.



These Jump Lists have customizable parts that are different across different applications.


Snap is a quick and fun way to resize open windows just by simply dragging them to the edges of your screen. You can also expand both vertically and horizontally. It also makes it easy for reading, organizing and comparing windows.


Windows Live Essentials:

It`s a free piece of software that that makes Windows 7 do even more great things. Email, Instant messaging, photo editing and blogging all in nut shell!

Windows Photo Gallery


Windows Live Movie Maker and Family Safety are also part of fun ofered by this feature.

Windows Search:

When we start typing into the Start menu search box, we can instantly see a list of relevant pictures, music files, mails and documents on our PC. Search results are grouped by category, and contain highlighed keywords and text snippets to make them easier to scan. External hard drives, networked PCs and libraries are also able to be searched through.




It is a familiar place for switching between windows nad it is easier to see more flexible and powerful. You can also pin favorite programs anywhere in the taskbar. You can then rearrange them by clicking and dragging. When you point to a takbar icon you can see a preview of open files or programs. Once you move your mouse over a thumbnail you can see a preview of the full window and can also close the windows.
