The old standbys are still here but better than ever and have a new cousin
Paint – Has a Ribbon and the same basic shape tools that were in Word 2003 and natural media brushes like watercolor, pencil and crayon. The control on the Paint ribbon are designed to be used with touch.
WordPad – Has a Ribbon and lets you highlight and indent text, format it with bullets and insert pictures into a document.
A new ribbon—the strip across the top of the window that shows what Paint can do—makes this tried-and-true program easier to use, with choices displayed out in the open rather than in menus. And Paint's new realistic digital "brushes" will bring your pictures to life in shades of watercolor, crayon, and calligraphy.
But the fresh calculator in Windows 7 also sports new elements, which are to be found under the Options menu. These let you calculate the duration between two periods of time (date calculation), access a set of four templates designed to calculate lease and mortgage payments, gas mileage and give you a wage estimation. All you have to do is pick the desired worksheet and complete the fields available for the application to calculate the result.
Already as necessary as pencils and paper clips, Sticky Notes just got more useful. In Windows 7, you can format a note’s text, change its color with a click, and speedily resize, collapse, and flip through notes.
Start up and shut down seem to be much faster.
