Well it time to do some of these screencast’s on Windows Vista! My plan is to do a series of Windows Vista screencasts on various technologies that are new to Windows Vista. So I thought I would start off with Search. The main reason for this is this will fundamentally affect everyone that uses Vista and provide them with huge productivity gains compared to Windows XP.
The plan is to create 10 minute “screencasts” showing you new features in Windows Vista. That way you can get a taste of what has changed without spending hours and hours on reading documents or watching full Webcasts. Michael and myself have done these in the past on various technologies around Windows Server 2003 R2 technologies but I thought now that Windows Vista has gone to RTM that it was time to do a series of these.
So what is “Search” all about in Windows Vista. Well to me its all about being more productive with finding information easily. Today we all have large amounts of data that we have to deal with on a daily basis. The fundamental issue we all have is getting to this data fast without caring where it resides on your computer. Most of us have different methods for organizing our data and everyone is different and use what works for them. The most common way I’ve seen people organize the data they are working on is to save to the “desktop” so they can see the documents and get to them quickly. Well with Windows Vista this should no longer be necessary. Because “search” is embedded throughout the operating system at every turn.
Next we have “Search Explorers” which essential allow you to created more targeted search’s and save then for future use.
So enough of me rambling! Click the picture below to start the Screencast! I hope you enjoy it!
