Put a “Pin Up” of the Folders You Use Most.  Windows® 7 allows

you to “pin up” the folders you use most on your taskbar. Simply hold

your mouse over the favorite folder, right click, and drag it onto the

taskbar. Windows 7 automatically pins itself to the Explorer Jump List.

To open the folder, right click on the Explorer icon and select the

folder you want.

Double-Up Your Windows. When working within an application,

sometimes you just want more of a good thing. To open another

window of the same application (assuming the app can run more

than one instance), simply hold Shift and click the taskbar icon.

You can also middle-click your third mouse button for the same result.

Clear, Crisp Display—It’s In Your Control.  Windows 7 makes it

easy for you to adjust your display settings, making text and images

easier to view in all the various locations where you work on your

computer. Your laptop display may look fine at work but a little dark

at home. Adjust the text and image settings easily with two snappy

applets: ClearType Text Tuning and Display Color Calibration. Run

cttune.exe and dccw.exe, or look them up in the Control Panel.

Order and Reason for Your Taskbar. You can decide the

order that your icons show up in your taskbar by simply dragging

them to the order you desire. And for the first five icons,

you can launch them with a simple keystroke: Any of the first

five icons can be opened by pressing clip_image009®+1, clip_image009[1]+2, etc.

Taskbar Traversing. While we’re on the subject of taskbar shortcuts,

use clip_image009[2]+T to shift your attention to the taskbar. Your machine will

make its active screen your taskbar menu, and you can use the arrow

keys to select the application you’re interested in. Just hit Enter to

launch it. Naturally, to exit this trick, press Esc.

BitLocker To Go Protection. BitLocker® has become a saving grace

when it comes to increased laptop security. Windows 7 has taken

security even farther with its BitLocker To GoTM feature, which allows

you to encrypt removable USB devices and external disks. To enable

BitLocker or BitLocker To Go, right click the drive in Windows Explorer

and select “Turn on BitLocker…” This can also be managed centrally via

Group Policy, so IT administrators can require the USB drive be

encrypted before files can be written to it.
