Windows 7: How to be More Productive

Business Technology | February 22, 2012

Windows 7 has numerous features making it a great improvement over prior systems. However, like most things, if you are unaware of all these features you could be missing out.

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

  • Coping images to a CD or DVD is easy with Windows 7. Just double click the image, and select the drive that has your blank disk. Select the burn option and Windows 7 takes it from there!
  • Easily find and repair problems. If your operating system is acting strangely, simply click the “Control Panel” option. From there, you can select “troubleshooting” to access a series of wizards which will resolve common operating problems. Including cleaning up systems that are slowed by a lot of adware and other clutter.
  • Do younger members of your household install cumbersome software that slows down your computer? This can be easily prevented using the Windows 7 AppLocker feature. This feature only allows your pc to run and install programs that have your pre-approval. You can tell AppLocker to only run programs from trustworthy companies, so if someone is trying to run a program from an unknown publisher AppLocker will prevent it.
  • Another great feature is its power efficiency service. This enables you to keep an eye on 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.
