Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Features:
Desktop With Windows 7, we’ve made it easier to get more done on the desktop. New ways to juggle windows Overwhelmed by open windows? Windows 7 comes with three simple yet powerful new features called Aero Shake, Aero Peek, and Snap to help you instantly clear through desktop clutter.
Faster, more Responsive Performance Nobody likes to wait, so we all want our PCs to perform well. We looked at a number of ways to improve performance on PCs running Windows 7. We designed the operating system to be more responsive and simpler to use. To improve performance, Windows 7 is designed to make PCs start up, shut down, resume from standby, and respond faster. To help you zip through your day, we’ve added new features to simplify the number of steps required to do common things. We’ve also focused on making it more convenient to work with the operating system. For example, the Action Center gives you more control over how the operating system notifies you about system changes. You can recover more quickly from problems when they do occur because when you’re ready to address issues, Windows 7 will help you fix them.
Spectacular New Wallpaper We spend a lot of time staring at our PCs. Aesthetics shouldn’t just be an afterthought. That’s why Windows 7 includes a slew of new desktop backgrounds-wallpapers-that range from sublime to silly. Or try the new desktop slide show, which displays a rotating series of pictures (ours or yours). Your desktop will never be dull again.
Retooled Taskbar Since Windows 95, the taskbar has served as the go-to spot for launching programs and switching windows. Times and PC habits have changed. So in Windows 7, the taskbar has been completely redesigned to help you work smarter, cut clutter, and get more done.
Improved Gadgets Gadgets, the popular mini-programs introduced in Windows Vista, are now more flexible and fun. Based on your feedback, we’ve done away with the Sidebar, so you can stick your gadgets anywhere on the desktop.
Parental Controls Even when you’re not looking over their shoulders, you can set limits on your kids’ computer use-and help them be safer online, too. In Windows 7, Parental Controls helps you limit how much computer time children have, as well as which programs and games they can use (and perhaps more importantly, when). With the Parental Controls in Windows Media Center, you can also block access to objectionable TV shows and movies.
Easier TV, Movies and Video With a streamlined user interface and support for new content types and digital TV, Windows Media Center in certain editions of Windows 7 makes watching TV, movies, and other video content on your PC easier than ever. With a simple USB TV Tuner you can record and watch shows on your schedule. Windows Media Center has been updated to manage a single TV guide containing both standard and digital high definition TV shows. You’ll be able to find your favorite shows super-fast with new features such as turbo scroll. Just hold down the right-arrow key and you’ll zip through content listings.
