Windows 7 TIPS

Changing the Control Panel Icon Size
1. By default, the icons on the desktop are shown by Category. My preference is to View by Large or Small icons. This way you can more easily see all the options
2. Open the Control Panel
3. On the top right, click on View by: Category
4. Change it to Large or Small icons
5. Now all the options show up for you.

Fixing Pin to Taskbar Disabled
If the option to pin to the taskbar does now show up when you right click on an icon, perhaps you also have the shortcut arrow display turned off. To enable it again
  1. Run Regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ lnkfile
  3. Createt a new String Value with the name IsShortcut
  4. Reboot the computer
Changing the Taskbar
If you want to change some of those options:
  1. Right click on an open area of the taskbar
  2. Select Properties
  3. From here you have options to:
Lock the Taskbar
Auto-hide the taskbar
Use small icons
Whether you want the taskbar on the Bottom, Left, Right or Top of the screen
Several options for the buttons

Windows Disk Image Burner
With Windows 7, you can now directly burn ISO images
Using the Windows Explorer, double click on the ISO file
If you have another software program that lets you view the contents of an ISO file (like WinZip), right click on the file and select Open withWindows Disk Image Burner
