Windows 7 Tips.

1. Record Problems - Problem Steps Recorder

I don’t know about you, but I am always asked by colleagues, clients, friends and family for help with their computer problems, but when they explain it is often as clear as mud.

So rather than persisting and letting the frustration build, (only to find they simply have the volume turned off, or didn’t maximise a page or aren’t connected to the internet), Windows 7 has a smart little program called Problem Steps Recorder (PSR).

So to see the issue they are having, tell them to click Start and type “PSR” and press Enter. Click to open the program. A small little recording bar will pop-up. They then click ‘Start Record’. I will then record what they are doing, every click and keypress, take screen grabs, and package everything up into a single zipped MHTML file when they're finished, which they can simply email as an attachment to you. It's quick, easy and effective, and will save you hours of troubleshooting time and frustration.

2. Troubleshooting Help

Windows 7 has some great in built features such as simple wizards that will try resolve common problems. So if Windows 7 is playing up, give this a try.

Go to the Control Panel and in the search box at the top right, type ‘Find and Fix’ and you will see the list of functions appear. These will help resolve common problems, check your settings, clean up your system and more.

3. Windows is Still Windows… It Will Crash

If you have used Windows for any long period of time, you would most likely have at some stage experienced a crash and/or the ‘blue screen of death’. It is pretty mush inevitable at some stage with years of use (or even sooner in some cases.) But it is always when you least expect it!

But it doesn’t need to be the hassle it used to be. What you can do is simply set ‘Restore Points’ along the way, so if you do have a crash, you can just tell Windows to pick up again from where that last restore point was.

BUT this does not replace backing up your files! Remember the famous quote by Socrates... Thou must back up your computer! Back it up, back it up, back it up!
Ahhh… what a wise old man... and such Foresight! :)

So create a system repair disc straight away in case you run into problems booting Windows later on. Click Start > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc, and let Windows 7 build a bootable emergency disc. If the worst does happen then it could be the only way to get your PC running again.

4. Dual Monitors

If you use a laptop or even a desktop and sometimes use a second screen, (or a projector), then you will love this tip.

It can be a bit of a pain getting to the setting to Extend the desktop, duplicate it or use your computer as connected to a projector. Not now!

With Windows 7 just press Win+P and choose your preferred display. Isn’t that great?!


Just For Fun

Go to Google and type: do a barrel roll.
Hehe :)

Redback Studios recently upgraded our Wine IP website; and it has a very smart look and is simple and easy to navigate. The process for us as a business was easy and Laurence extremely helpful and understood what we were seeking; which reduced the costs in time and money. Redback also hosts our website and have been able to help us with technical problems that have arisen outside their responsibility. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Redback to design, develop and maintain your website presence.
