Four Tips for Windows® 7 and 8 Operating Systems

Introduction

Modern computer operating systems such as Windows® 8.1 or 7 have many useful features that are not widely known but can enhance usability and convenience. In addition, new releases and updates to Windows operating systems have continually added or improved features. Below, NeweggBusiness has picked some useful tips for the latest Windows operating systems.

Arrange Windows Left and Right (Windows 7 and 8 Operating Systems)

One trick professionals can use to take advantage of widescreen LCD / LED monitors is to arrange two windows side by side. For instance, this allows a user to view two different spreadsheets or webpages on one monitor. On Windows 7 and 8 operating systems, pressing the Windows key and either the left or right arrows arranges the active window to either the left or right side of the screen.

Adding Filters to List View (Windows 7 and 8 Operating Systems)

For sorting through folders that contain many files and sub-folders, icon view can be inefficient. List view on the other hand, is ideal for browsing those types of folders. However, list view sometimes lacks filters that users may find useful. To add filters to a folder in list view, right click on the filter bay and you can see a list of available filters. If the filter you require is not in the right-click menu, select More to see all filters.

Boot to Desktop (Windows 8.1 Operating System)

Many users find Windows 8’s Metro user interface better suited for tablets than desktops or laptops. Unfortunately, the Windows 8 operating system starts in Metro UI mode by default. With the Windows 8.1 operating system update however, users now have the ability to boot into desktop mode.

You can enable boot to desktop in Windows 8.1 by right-clicking on the taskbar and clicking on Properties. Go to the Navigation tab and check the box next to, “Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in.” The next time you sign into the operating system, you will be in desktop mode.

Quickly Lock Windows (Windows 7 and 8 Operating Systems)

The keyboard shortcut to quickly lock your computer is Windows + L. Useful for when you need to quickly leave your computer lock out unauthorized access to the operating system.
