Windows7 Overview_MVP Jay R Barrios

  1. 1. Windows 7 Overview Jay-R Barrios President | Philippine Windows Users Group www.phiwug.org
  2. 2. Windows 7 Formerly codenamed Blackcomb and Vienna is the latest version of Microsoft Windows for use on personal computing, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablet PCs and media center computers. www.phiwug.org
  3. 3. Windows 7 • Home Basic • Starter • Home Premium • Professional • Enterprise • Ultimate www.phiwug.org
  4. 4. Windows 7: System Requirements 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit) 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit) DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver www.phiwug.org
  5. 5. Agenda • What’s New in W7 • Features • Installation Types www.phiwug.org
  6. 6. What’s New: Aero Peek Aero Peek can be used to "peek" behind all of the open windows on your system so you can get a look at the desktop. It can also be used to find specific windows that are open but possibly obscured or hidden by other windows. www.phiwug.org
  7. 7. www.phiwug.org
  8. 8. What’s New: Aero Snaps Aero Snaps provides a number of new ways to position and resize windows. And none of them actually require new onscreen controls, so they work fine with both the mouse and with Windows 7's new touch controls. www.phiwug.org
  9. 9. www.phiwug.org
  10. 10. www.phiwug.org
  11. 11. www.phiwug.org
  12. 12. What’s New: Aero Shake Aero Shake is designed as an adjunct to Aero Peek, though it works a bit differently. In this case, the focus is on the selected window, as you'd expect. And other windows are truly minimized: That is, they disappear from the screen entirely and you don't see a "ghost window outline" as you do with Aero www.phiwug.org
  13. 13. What’s New: Aero Themes Aero Themes is a combination of desktop background, Aero glass window color, sound scheme, and screen saver. Windows 7 comes with a number of built-in Aero Themes. Users can create their own by building off of them. Aero Themes can be saved, of course, and they're also portable, meaning that they can be packaged up and copied from machine-to-machine. www.phiwug.org
  14. 14. www.phiwug.org
  15. 15. Aero Themes: Windows 7 The default Windows 7 Aero Theme utilizes the default Sky (clear, light bluish) glass color, the Windows Default sound scheme, and no screensaver. www.phiwug.org
  16. 16. Aero Themes: Architecture Features a desktop slideshow of six alternating architectural images, the Twilight (deep blue) glass color, the Cityscape sound scheme, and no screensaver. www.phiwug.org
  17. 17. Aero Themes: Characters Features a desktop slideshow of six alternating whimsical cartoon-type images, the Taupe (light pink) glass color, the Characters sound scheme, and no screensaver. www.phiwug.org
  18. 18. Aero Themes: Landscapes Features a desktop slideshow of six alternating landscape images, the Slate (dusty brown) glass color, the Landscape sound scheme, and no screensaver www.phiwug.org
  19. 19. Aero Themes: Nature Features a desktop slideshow of six alternating plant- and leaf-based images, the Lavender (bright pink) glass color, the Garden sound scheme, and no screensaver. www.phiwug.org
  20. 20. Aero Themes: Scenes Features a desktop slideshow of six alternating artistic images, the Violet (soft purple) glass color, the Quirky sound scheme, and no screensaver. www.phiwug.org
  21. 21. Aero Themes: [Your Region] This Aero Theme is customized for the region in which you live. It features a desktop slideshow of six alternating country- or region-specific images, a custom glass color (medium tan for the US), a custom sound scheme (Delta for the US), and no www.phiwug.org screensaver.
  22. 22. Demo: Aero P/S/S/T www.phiwug.org
  23. 23. Features: BitLocker To Go An enhanced BitLocker with the ability to protect removable storage devices, such as USB-based hard drives, flash devices, and other media. www.phiwug.org
  24. 24. BitLocker To Go: Installation Enabling BitLocker To Go is straightforward: Simply connected the removable storage device, open Computer, right-click the device, and choose "Turn on BitLocker" from the pop-up menu that appears. www.phiwug.org
  25. 25. BitLocker To Go: Installation www.phiwug.org
  26. 26. BitLocker To Go: Installation www.phiwug.org
  27. 27. BitLocker To Go: Installation Either way, the BitLocker Drive Encryption wizard will start up in a separate window. After a moment's pause, you'll be asked to choose between password- and smartcard- based locking. www.phiwug.org
  28. 28. BitLocker To Go: Installation Most individuals will need to use a password, but many businesses are starting to use smartcards, which allow administrators to centrally manage BitLocker certificates in Active Directory. www.phiwug.org
  29. 29. BitLocker To Go: Installation www.phiwug.org
  30. 30. BitLocker To Go: Installation Smartcards provide two-factor authentication: In addition to the physical card requirement, the user will still need to type in a four-digit PIN. www.phiwug.org
  31. 31. BitLocker To Go: Warning Disk encryption is still an agonizingly slow process. It takes BitLocker To Go over 20 minutes to encrypt a 2 GB USB memory stick device, for example. www.phiwug.org
  32. 32. BitLocker To Go: Warning Disk encryption is still an agonizingly slow process. It takes BitLocker To Go over 20 minutes to encrypt a 2 GB USB memory stick device, for example.  www.phiwug.org
  33. 33. BitLocker To Go: Tips As suggested by the BitLocker Drive Encryption wizard, you can pause encryption if you need to remove the device for some reason. If you don't do so, you could damage or lose files stored on the device. www.phiwug.org
  34. 34. BitLocker To Go: Installation www.phiwug.org
  35. 35. BitLocker To Go: Installation www.phiwug.org
  36. 36. BitLocker To Go: Installation Once the drive is encrypted, you'll notice a few changes. The icon for BitLocker To Go- encrypted disks is different, for starters, and includes a padlock/key overlay. www.phiwug.org
  37. 37. BitLocker To Go: Installation www.phiwug.org
  38. 38. BitLocker To Go: Usage When you remove and then insert a protected storage device, you will be prompted to provide a password to unlock the disk. Once you do so, the normal Auto Run dialog will appear and the device will work normally. www.phiwug.org
  39. 39. BitLocker To Go: Usage www.phiwug.org
  40. 40. BitLocker To Go: Usage A dialog will appear when you plug the protected device into any Windows 7-based PC. You do not need Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate to use this feature, it is instead compatible with all Windows 7 versions. You only need Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate to install BitLocker To Go on a removable storage device. www.phiwug.org
  41. 41. BitLocker To Go: Usage www.phiwug.org
  42. 42. BitLocker To Go: Usage www.phiwug.org
  43. 43. Features: Calculator Windows 2000 Windows XP Windows Vista www.phiwug.org
  44. 44. Features: Calculator Windows 2000 Windows XP Windows Vista Windows 7 Calculator www.phiwug.org
  45. 45. Calculator: Standard This is the classic Windows Calculator and works largely like all of the Calculator versions included with Windows 95 through Windows Vista. One change is that in addition to the Memory Clear (MC), Memory Recall (MR), Memory Store (MS), and Memory Add (M+) buttons, the Windows 7 version of Calculator adds a Memory Subtract (M-) button. www.phiwug.org
  46. 46. Calculator: Scientific As with previous Windows versions, the Windows 7 Calculator includes a Scientific Calculator mode as well. www.phiwug.org
  47. 47. Calculator: Programmer New to the Windows 7 Calculator is a Programmer mode that provides such things as number format conversion (hexadecimal, decimal, octal, binary), data type conversion (BYTE, WORD, DWORD, QWORD) and the like. www.phiwug.org
  48. 48. Calculator: Programmer Also new to the Windows 7 Calculator is a new Statistics mode. www.phiwug.org
  49. 49. Features: Calculator When enabled, Calculator expands to the right and provides angle, area, energy, length, power, pressure, temperature, time, velocity, volume, and weight/mass conversion functionality. www.phiwug.org
  50. 50. Features: Calculator Each offers unit-specific options. For example, with temperature, you can convert to and from Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin www.phiwug.org
  51. 51. Features: Paint www.phiwug.org
  52. 52. Features: Wordpad www.phiwug.org
  53. 53. Demo: Calculator, Paint, Wordpad www.phiwug.org
  54. 54. Features: Gadgets In Windows Vista, Microsoft introduced a new Windows Sidebar environment that hosted mini- applications called gadgets. (See my Windows Vista Feature Focus article, Windows Sidebar, for more information, including the origins of this environment.) In Windows 7, the gadgets continue on as Windows Gadgets. But the container environment, Windows Sidebar, is no longer provided. www.phiwug.org
  55. 55. Features: Gadgets www.phiwug.org
  56. 56. Features: Gadgets Calendar. A simple month, year, date, and day of week display in non-configurable orange. Nice touch: Click it and you'll see the full month view. Clock. A decent clock with one major advantage over virtually every downloadable clock gadget I've tried: You can set it to the time in any time zone, not just the system time. Clock is configurable with 8 clock faces, some of which are quite attractive. www.phiwug.org
  57. 57. Features: Gadgets CPU Meter. This gadget features two simple analog-style dials measuring the current CPU utilization and memory usage, respectively. Note that CPU Meter is overly simple and can't differentiate between multiple CPUs or CPU cores. Currency. A simple currency converter. www.phiwug.org
  58. 58. Features: Gadgets Feed Headlines. This gadget is an RSS feed aggregator that links into the RSS feeds you've subscribed to through Internet Explorer 7. It rotates through the currently-unread feeds. If you click a headline, a pop-out window displays the entire feed. Click the feed headline in the pop-out window, and the entire post or article will be displayed in your default Web browser. Picture Puzzle. A simple tile-based sliding puzzle game with 11 different images and timer. www.phiwug.org
  59. 59. Features: Gadgets Slide Show. The requisite photo slideshow gadget, Slide Show can be configured to look for images in particular folders, with different transition types. A View button on the gadget will open the currently displayed picture in Windows Photo Gallery. Weather. A very handy and attractive weather gadget that can be configured for any location worldwide. www.phiwug.org
  60. 60. Features: Gadgets Windows Media Center. The only new gadget in Windows 7, Media Center provides a simple front-end to the Windows Media Center application. Click any of its revolving set of links--Music, Pictures, Music + Pictures, Internet TV, and many others--causes the appropriate experience to startup inside of Windows Media Player. www.phiwug.org
  61. 61. Gadgets: Changes from Vista No more (visible) Sidebar. The Windows Sidebar UI is now removed in Windows 7 because so few people left it enabled even though it was turned on by default. The people have spoken. Note, however, that the Sidebar executable, sidebar.exe, is still running in the background when you have any gadgets displayed. Yep, it's that lame. www.phiwug.org
  62. 62. Gadgets: Changes from Vista Not running by default. One of the more annoying aspects of Windows Sidebar in Vista is that it was enabled by default, slowing boot-time and providing access to a feature few users wanted. In Windows 7, no Windows Gadgets are running by default when you first install the OS, in keeping with the Windows 7 simplicity and user control mantras. www.phiwug.org
  63. 63. Gadgets: Changes from Vista Touch enabled. Where it makes sense, Windows Gadgets are touch-friendly and support touch-specific features. This support isn't very sophisticated, to be fair: Primarily, portions of each gadget UI--like the "grippie"--have been enlarged to be more easily accessible via a finger tap. www.phiwug.org
  64. 64. Gadgets: Changes from Vista Offline support. Unlike the Vista gadgets, many of which relied on live Internet connections to provide a display (like the Weather and Stocks gadgets), the Windows Gadgets included in Windows 7 are designed to work properly when offline as well. When offline gadgets display a "time stamp" to show you how out of date the data is. www.phiwug.org
  65. 65. Gadgets: Changes from Vista When offline, some gadgets will display a red time stamp. www.phiwug.org
  66. 66. Gadgets: Changes from Vista No more Notes gadget. Microsoft has removed the Notes gadget from Windows 7 and provides instead a Sticky Notes application that offers similar functionality but integrates with the new Windows 7 taskbar. www.phiwug.org
  67. 67. Gadgets: Changes from Vista No more Notes gadget. Microsoft has removed the Notes gadget from Windows 7 and provides instead a Sticky Notes application that offers similar functionality but integrates with the new Windows 7 taskbar. www.phiwug.org
  68. 68. Features: Taskbar Windows 7 includes an enhanced taskbar that addresses some of the issues of the past by minimizing clutter and putting commonly-needed functions in a single place. And while it is just one of many new UI enhancements in Windows 7, it is also arguably the most obvious because the taskbar is always up front and center, anchored (by default) to the bottom of the screen. www.phiwug.org
