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 ®+1, +2, etc.
Taskbar Traversing. While we’re on the subject of taskbar shortcuts,
use +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.
Your Own Personal Help Desk: Windows Troubleshooting
Platform. We’ve all experienced minor issues like Windows Aero not
displaying or sound controls not functioning. Don’t get stuck in the
mud just because your computer seems to be. Windows 7 can save
you from having to bite the bullet and call the help desk for every
problem that comes up, thanks to the new Windows Troubleshooting
Platform. It’s easily accessed by typing “fix” or “Troubleshoot” in the
Start Menu. A list of Windows Troubleshooting Packs allows you to
choose from what might be giving you trouble, and the troubleshooter
will faithfully attempt to clear up the problem.
