Windows 7 Tips and Tweaks

It has been a while since Windows 7 has been out in one form or another. Now that it has been released to retail, we thought it would be nice to share a collection of tips and tweaks with everybody else!

The RC (Release Candidate) build was out for a significant amount of time, followed by the RTM (Release to Manufacturing) build. Frequenting several places where early-adopters like to try things out, when RTM was released I started threads here at OCForums, at Overclockers Tech forums and at The Raptor Pit to gather input on things to make the Windows 7 experience even better. The response was great to say the least!

There are three catagories listed below of tips and tweaks:

1. Links that go to articles showing how to do things.
2. Applications that help you do them.
3. User Submissions formulated and submitted by folks from the various forums.

Now, without further ado, let’s get started:
