Get more done
Faster startups, shutdowns, and resumes from standby help you spend less time waiting and more time being productive. With enhanced power-saving features, you can enjoy longer battery life on your mobile appliances. In addition, you can share documents, printers, and more across multiple computers running Windows 7--regardless of whether your organization has a server.
Work your way
Windows 7 provides improved taskbar thumbnails that simplify your ability to open applications and to see what’s already open. You can even get a full-screen preview before switching to a specific window. With the new Jump Lists feature, you can easily keep track of files you’ve recently used, saving you from hunting for them. Windows 7 also makes it much simpler and more intuitive to open, close, resize, and arrange the windows on your desktop.
Explore new possibilities
Enhanced handwriting recognition in Windows 7 makes pen input faster and more accurate. You can create personalized custom dictionaries for handwriting recognition, write math expressions, and use additional languages, including newly supported ones. If you have a touch-screen monitor, Windows Touch lets you work directly on your computer screen, using your fingers to easily navigate, scroll, resize windows, and more.
