For a long time Windows users have been using third-party tools and hacks to customize the Windows Logon UI, but Microsoft has finally realized that and have made this option available on Windows 7.
In the latest build 7057 of Windows 7, Rafael Rivera found out that now you can customize the logon UI without any hacks or patches. You will still have to do it manually, but it will be safe as no patching of system files will be involved.
Windows 7 is still in its beta phase, and an RC release is just round the corner, but the earlier milestones versions already proved how faster Windows 7 really is than Vista and XP.
Last week, when Wndows 7 build 7048 got leaked, testers found out that they can disable Internet Explorer 8 in Windows. Similarly, you can disable more applications now.
Just when the time is running out and the limited Windows 7 Beta download period from Microsoft is coming to an end, we just got another leak and this time it’s Windows 7 (build 7022).
It has been reported that some ‘friendly’ individuals from Microsoft Ukraine have leaked the new build, called Build 7022.winmain.090115-1850, over the Internet. This build was compiled almost a month ago, on January 15, 2009.
Windows 7 is now considered the best OS ever released by Microsoft. Why? Because it’s way faster than XP, Vista and its performance improvements have won the hearts of many tech enthusiasts.
They didn’t even let the security factor get you. There are loads and loads on antivirus software for Windows XP and Vista. But none are fully compatible with the new OS, Windows 7.
Windows Media Player 12, in Windows 7, now supports DivX, XviD and MP4 video files, but in case you still have problems playing any file, you can try this codecs pack, specially for Windows 7.
Win7Codecs is a comprehensive package of codecs for Windows 7. It is like a plug and play package that will play all media files on WMP, right after installation!
We all know that the next version of Windows Media Player, which is WMP12, comes with the upcoming OS from Microsoft, Windows 7. I happened to install the first beta, and when I tried to set the equalizer in WMP12, I couldn’t find it anywhere.
I searched every menu and preferences, but it wasn’t there in any of them. Just when I thought its not there in the beta version, I finally saw the Graphic Equalizer button, in a tricky way!
Windows 7 Beta has been released and downloaded by millions of people already. Just likeÂ Vista and XP, Windows 7 also has many keyboard shortcut keys whichÂ helps to improve the speed and productivity of your work flow.
Here is a list of all the new Windows 7 keyboard shortcut keys which will be definitely helpful for all Windows 7 users.
Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 7, will feature a new taskbar, that you won’t find in any of the previous versions on Windows.
This new taskbar is called the ‘Superbar’. Instead of showing application names,Â it now shows big icons of whatever program is running, or pinned on the taskbar.
Windows 7 Beta comes with a number of free themes, wallpapers and gadgets that you can use. But, if you would like to customize it more, Microsoft has launched a Personalize section in the Windows 7 Beta website where you can get them for free.
You can now download more themes, desktop backgrounds and gadgets directly from Microsoft, and use them in your Windows 7.
