It's been over a week since the Windows 7 Beta was released to the public. You've read our initial impressions and even followed our guide to installing the OS using a USB key. So what now? Microsoft's post-Vista Windows experience is more than the obvious Taskbar and user interface updates; there are plenty of hidden features and shortcuts that haven't been advertised. But fear not: we've compiled a list of every known Windows 7 tweak and secret. Follow these 20 tricks to make the most out of this beta and become a Windows 7 power user.
This OS is running on a really old machine and it runs faster than it did in XP Pro.

This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.
Some SPCUG members should look at this again. Maybe you won't change anything, but you should see what is running...without using msconfig program from the start | run menu.

Turn on Vista's Hidden Check Boxes Feature
Most tech-savvy users know how to select multiple files: Hold down the Ctrl key while clicking each individual file. Of course, that can get a little tricky if you're working with a long list and/or a lot of files: It's too easy to mis-click and "lose" all your selections. That's why I'm loving an undocumented Windows Vista feature: check boxes. Instead of holding down the Ctrl key, you simply click a check box next to each file you want to select.
To enable this handy option, open any system window (like Computer or Explorer), click the Organize menu, and then choose Folder and Search Options. Next, click the View tab, and then scroll down until you see "Use check boxes to select items." Enable it, then click OK.
Presto! Now, whenever you mouse over a file, a check box should appear in the left column. Select multiple files, then drag 'em wherever you want or do whatever else you need to do. Also, note that you can click the "master" check box next to Name to instantly select all the files (as an alternative to the old standby Ctrl-A).
The list :
1. Everything: lightning-fast free desktop search for files and folders.
2. Digsby: multi-protocol free desktop IM client, email notifier for regular and web mail, and social networking tracker.
3. Returnil: a free virtualization software that provides an “undo” option for your system.
4. Q-Dir: a multi-pane free file manager that offers a good range of functions and an excellent user experience.
5. Launchy: free search-box based launcher for your apps and files.
6. The KMPlayer: media and DVD player that is feature rich and will play anything you throw at it.
7. Threatfire: free, effective antispyware that offers real-time protection and behavior based (heuristic) detection of malicious software.
8. ArsClip: free, feature rich clipboard manager with hotkey-access from any application. Can store “permanent” clips for frequently used items.
9. Xobni: free Outlook extension that provides superfast searches in Outlook and threaded conversations.
10. 3RVX: free hotkey and mouse enabled volume control with cool visual effects.

"Pogoplug makes this possible for anyone, with no network setup or configuration."
