In today’s post, Australian MVP Ben Walters presents his three favourite Windows 7 features, which he shares with the community below.
“Recently I upgraded my work laptop to Windows 7, so far I’m enjoying the new OS from Microsoft and while there are obviously a lot of upgrades under the cover, I highlight my personal top 3 features in no particular order:
1. New Start Menu
Probably one of the main features that will cause some commotion amongst users who are upgrading, personally I love it I’ve already noticed an increase in my productivity simply from this small design change. Rather than having to filter through all my open windows I can now find the window I want by hovering over the items on the start menu
2. Slideshow desktop
Ok, so this is purely a cosmetic feature but as a new father this is something I can see winning a lot of hearts with new users, basically Windows now allows you to select multiple images for your desktop and on a predetermined time changes your background picture.
3. Native VHD Support
This is a feature that will have developers and presenters cheering along, while attaching a VHD doesn’t offer a huge gain as far as features go, it’s the ability to boot from a VHD that has me really excited. The prospect of being able to boot into a number of different Demo/development machines as needed makes this a killer feature”.
