Well, after much cajoling from Dave, I've finally migrated completely from Vista to Windows 7 64-bit. I've still got my Vista setup in a dual boot system and would never get rid of it but I am now using Windows 7 exclusively.

And guess what!! Dave, you were right.....Windows 7 64-bit[i:3gv30f9o] is[/i:3gv30f9o] very nice, very nice indeed!!

Anyway, now I am somewhat familiar with the new operating system I thought I might post some Windows 7 tips and tricks to assist others. Even if you do not have Windows 7 at the moment and are just contemplating the move, hopefully some these tips may be of some help down the track.

Please bear in mind; these are very simple/basic tips and tricks meant primarily for XP users, who have had no experience of either Vista nor Windows 7, to assist with the familiarization process:
