Windows 7 represents a major improvement over past Windows operating systems. However, if you do not know how to use this most recent version of Windows properly, you’ll miss out on a number of goodies that’ll help you work more efficiently.

By mastering a few simple tricks, you can get the most out of Windows 7.

  • If you would like to copy images from your computer to a CD or DVD it is now much simpler with Windows 7. Double-click the ISO image that you want to burn and choose the drive that has your blank disc in it. After choosing the “burn” option all you need to do is wait!
  • Finding and fixing problems is extremely simple with Windows 7. If you feel like your OS is operating oddly pick the “troubleshooting” option from the “Control Panel”. This gives you access to a series of wizards that can help you remove clutter and clean up your system.
  • Installing a lot of cumbersome software will slow your system down. You can prevent this by utilizing the AppLocker feature. This allows you to pre-approve specified programs for installation. Which stops any non-preapproved software from being downloaded.
  • Another fantastic aspect is its power efficiency service. This enables you to monitor how much power your laptop is using. This can be very helpful if you’re working remotely and have no access to a power source.
