Today is Day 13, therefore i would like to be more creative in describing the below;
Windows 7 has lots of Features, some are the GOOD Features… and some are the COOL Features… and trust me there’s a difference :)..
A Good Feature is one of the BASICS that is similar to the Vegetable plate that is rich with Vitamins but not necessary the most attractive platter!
One of the GOOD features in Windows 7 is the User Account Control that falls in the Security model
User Account Control (UAC) is an important security feature (it existed first in Windows Vista) which helps prevent unauthorized changes to your computer. These changes can be initiated by applications, viruses or other users. UAC makes sure these changes are made only with approval from the administrator of the computer. If these changes are not approved by the administrator, they will never be executed and the system will remain unchanged.
In Windows Vista and Windows 7, applications run by default without any administrative permissions. They have the same permission levels as a normal user would. They cannot make any changes to the system.When an application wants to make system changes such as: modifications which affect other users, modifications of system files and folders, installation of new software, UAC prompts the user to ask for permission. An UAC prompt in Windows 7 looks similar to the one below.
If the user clicks on No, the change won't be performed. If the user clicks on Yes, the application received administrative permissions and is able to make system changes. These permissions will be given until the application stops running or it is closed by the user.
So UAC asks for your permission before it lets programs make changes to your PC. UAC in Windows 7 works so you don’t have to choose between security and “peace and quiet” so Fewer prompts & more control over settings; Action Center includes additional settings for UAC so you can pick what works for you.
I've spoken on the UAC in the “notification day” read about it here
Now with one off the COOL Features…
Personalization - It’s easy to make Windows 7 look the way you want
Well let’s be fair.. the word personalizing your computer can carry a load of things in it… because once YOU started using it then it became personalized :o)… However nowadays everyone have a different STYLE and now with Windows 7 you can show this style of yours with ease… you Right Click and then PERSONALIZE…
Everyone’s Windows desktop looks different, and most likely, you’ve changed your desktop background to fit your style.
With Windows 7 you can personalize your desktop by using new shades of glass, rich backgrounds, and unique sound schemes so your PC really reflects your style. A new feature called the Desktop Background Slideshow allows you to set entire albums of photos as a rotating desktop background.
When you are done customizing your background creation you can even save it so can send it to friends and family.
