Some useful Windows 7 websites

Post by John Gray »

Immense number of interesting tips at How-to Geek

Fully-illustrated tutorials at Windows 7 Forums

Just a few useful tips in Microsoft Technet's 77 Windows-7 Tips (posted some time ago by JoeP, perhaps?)

Paul Thurrott's Supersite for Windows has lots of useful articles and news on Windows 7.

Acronyms are useful, initially.

Here is another http://gizmodo.com/5150298/windows-7-th ... w-with-rc1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Even though it is for RC, most of the info is still valid

This is a great resource. Can it be pinned for ease of finding for those just coming to Win7?

For those who send a non-EileenLounger this info, I suggest adding http://www.eileenslounge.com/viewforum.php?f=19, to get him/her/it directly to the Windows 7 board.

Hello.
Which guide/link will provide a 'quick' guide to using new features (since Windows XP)? I've been looking through Microsoft's Product Guide but it's more of a sales pitch.

I'll have to search through the links if necessary but am hoping someone might point me quickly in the right direction?

If you don't want the Microsoft view, how about a (Google) search like this:
http://www.google.co.uk/search?sclient= ... G=S%C3%B6k" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

One example from the search result: http://windows.about.com/od/windowsosve ... ctions.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

But I guess there is a plethora of pages out there; I might even have some links in my bookmarks.

John Gray added How To Geek in the first posting, but it's always good to be reminded of a great site :grin:

I missed his reference to How To Geek the first time through. Again my apologies for the repeat.

Thanks for the welcome. Hopefully I'll be able to add my humble info to all the learned posters here.
Have a Great Day!

Another site, well not really a site but an app, that I have found very helpful with customizing my PC is Ultimate Windows Tweaker. This is like the old TweakUI on steroids.
