another wednesday and this week i’m in seattle but it’s time for my third set of tips from an upcoming 60 tips in 60 minutes presentation in april.
21. multi monitor support (and windows key + p)
no matter which way you set them up, windows 7 has great support for running a desktop or laptop from multiple monitors. don’t forget windows key + p!
there are so many cool things you can do with the new calculator in windows 7
23. multi touch
now that i’ve got a touch laptop i don’t like using any others.
24. wordpad and paint
check out the new wordpad and paint – they are very cool
25. remote desktop connection
another feature i use a lot. whether accessing server sessions or desktop sessions remotely
windows key + the plus key (and windows key + the minus key) – great for demos that aren’t in powerpoint
27. speech recognition
i’ve been using this one since vista – great feature
28. resource monitor
now you get a great window into the four main subsystems (cpu, disk, network and memory) for troubleshooting performance problems
29. repartitioning on the fly
just wrote a post on this one recently – great feature in both windows 7 and windows vista!
30. previous versions
introduced in windows vista – you’re less likely to lose important work in windows 7 professional or enterprise versions
