Windows 7 Hint and Tips

Here are a couple of handy Windows 7 tips you probably don't know about, but might be useful. 

If you run multiple programs simultaneously, your desktop can get extremely cluttered. If you're working on one program and want to minimize all the other windows, you can in a single step. Click and hold the title bar of the window you want to keep on the desktop; while still holding the title bar, shake it quickly back and forth until all of the other windows minimize to the taskbar. Then let go. To make them return, shake the title bar again.

To select multiple files for copying, moving or deleting in Windows Explorer, you generally use the keyboard and the mouse, Ctrl-clicking every file you want to select.  But there's a way to select multiple files in Windows 7 using only your mouse, via check boxes. To do it:

1. In Windows Explorer, click Organize, and then select "Folder and search options."
2. Click the View tab.
3. In Advanced Settings, check the box next to "Use check boxes to select items." Click OK.

From now on, when you hover your mouse over a file in Windows Explorer, a check box will appear next to it; click it to select the file.
