Windows 7

I know there are a lot of windows 7 tips out there for everyone to read, but in my experience there are 3 that I use the most:
  • Drag the title bar of any window to the top left (to split screen left), top right (to split screen right), and top middle (maximize window)
  • Create a "mac like" task bar; where your icons are in the middle.  Do this by creating a blank toolbar, slide it to move your icons where you like them, and then un-check "show name" in the right-click menu.
  • Icons you have pinned to your taskbar can be middle clicked to open a new version of it; for example Mozilla Firefox to open a new browser window.
