Be More Productive with Windows 7

Windows 7 is a large improvement over previous Windows operating systems. Understanding how to use this version well can boost your productivity significantly.

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’s now much easier with Windows 7. Double-click the ISO image that you want to burn and select the drive that has your blank disc in it. After choosing the “burn” option all you have to do is wait!
  • Finding and correcting problems is very simple with Windows 7. If you feel like your OS is behaving oddly choose the “troubleshooting” option from the “Control Panel”. This gives you access to a number of wizards that can help you reduce clutter and tidy up your system.
  • Do younger people in your household install cumbersome software that slows down your computer? This can be easily avoided using the Windows 7 AppLocker feature. This feature only allows your pc to run and install programs which have your pre-approval. You can tell AppLocker to only run programs from reputable companies, so if someone is trying to run a program from an unknown publisher AppLocker will prevent it.
