Microsoft has officially launched Windows 7, the successor to Windows Vista. The new version of Microsoft’s market-leading web browser now supports multi-touch technology. “Windows 7 brings to consumers more choice and value than any previous Microsoft operating system,” said Ashley Highfield UK Managing Director of Microsoft. “We’ve worked with partners and consumers alike to deliver an improved user experience with enhanced performance and functionality that promote ease and simplicity in everyday tasks,” he continued. Early feedback from customers report that Windows runs faster and starts up and shuts down more quickly.
Users can more easily organize, clean up and find the files they’re looking for. They can, for example, permanently pin items to the task bar at the bottom of the screen.
Users can also grab the title bar of a window and shake it to minimize all the other windows.
