  • The Windows® 7 Taskbar include some features that you might want to consider using in your next Application: Overlay Icons Jump Lists Thumbnail Toolbars Custom Thumbnail Tabbed ThumbnailThe key takeout from this short discussion — even if you don’t want to use the advanced features — make sure you have a great taskbar icon (at all kinds of DPI levels) and forget about Quick Launch and the system notification area (“tray”) because no one is going to look there for your App. Use taskbar buttons and the wealth of UI paradigms such as thumbnail Toolbars, Jump Lists etc. instead.

    29. 29. Windows 7 at a glance<br />Why named as “Windows 7” ?<br />How they count number “7”. This is quite simple. It comes from code version.<br />Windows 1.0 [first Release] -&gt; 2.0 -&gt; 3.0<br />Windows 3.0 was Windows NT which was code versioned as Windows 3.1<br />Then come Windows 9x[ 95,98, 98 SE, ME], which was code versioned as Windows 4.0. So we&apos;re counting all 9x versions as being 4.0 <br />Windows 2000 code was 5.0 and then we shipped Windows XP as 5.1, even though it was a major release. we didn&apos;t&apos; want to change code version numbers to maximize application compatibility<br />That brings us to Windows Vista, which is 6.0 <br />So we see windows 7 as 7th in the family of Windows releases<br />
