Windows 7

University staff are currently in the process of moving to Windows 7 on their work PCs.

Over the next few weeks, Information Services will be sending out hints and tips to help you discover some of the new features that come with Windows 7. Some of them may be simple time savers, whilst some could completely change the way you use Windows. Here are two simple tips:

  • Shake

If you have a number of windows open and want to minimise all but one. Left click on the title bar of the window you want and shake the mouse, all other windows will then minimise. ‘Windows’ key and home does the same thing.

  • Drag maximised windows without resizing

This subtle change allows you to drag windows more freely. Works well with ‘shake,’ when you click in a window’s title bar you can drag it without the need to resize the window first.
