Windows 7 – two little tips for screen real estate

15th December, 2009 – 9:47 am

I like Windows 7 – there I’ve said – happy now?    I normally reserve judgement on new Windows OSs until the first service pack.  Vista was a big heap of cack and though I see Windows 7 as only an upgrade (read as ‘fix’) of Vista it does look like they’ve focused on the right things – namely interface responsiveness and stability.

Two little things that I prefer to get back the screen real estate.

1)       Small icons on the desktop

-Right click on an empty part of your desktop and go to View | Small Icons

2)      Small icons on the task bar – this frees loads of space up on your screen

– Right click on the Task Bar, Properties | check the Use Small Icons
