Windows 7: 5 tips you should know.

Have you recently purchased a new computer running Windows 7?  We’ve uncovered some quick tricks that are pretty handy for new Windows 7 users.

1. Burn ISO files right from explorer.

ISO files are images of complete CDs or DVDs compiled as one whole image file (*.iso). No need for any fancy burning software.  Just select the ISO you’d like to burn a copy of and then click the “burn disc image” button.

2.  View windows side by side.

Just select the window that you’d like to view side by side,  click the “windows” key and the left arrow.  Then select the other window that you’d like to see and click the “windows” key and then the right arrow.

3. Add videos link to your start menu.

Just right click on the start button and click properties.  Next click on the customize button and then select display as a link under videos.

4. Pin frequently used programs or files to the task bar or start menu.

Just click start, find the program you’d like to pin, right click on it and then select where you’d like to pin it (start menu or the task bar).

5.  Shake away the clutter.

If you have 18 different windows open and only want to see one select the window that you want to see with your mouse select the windows title bar hold the left mouse button down and shake the window.

You’ll notice that all of the other open windows have now been minimized! Oh and if you want all the windows open again just shake the same window again!
