PostSubject: Things you should know about your Vista OS   Sat Jan 05, 2008 11:03 am

By PC Magazine Staff
Tips, tricks, and secrets for the new OS.

Secret #1
Feeling some trepidation about installing the beta? Make Vista coexist with your existing OS: You can install it on a separate partition (we recommend PartitionMagic, www.partitionmagic.com), or install it on a virtual machine by using Microsoft Virtual PC (www.microsoft.com/virtualpc) or VMware Workstation (www.vmware.com).


Secret #2
Vista includes speech recognition for both entering text and executing Windows commands. Get started in the Control Panel's Speech Recognition applet.

Secret #3
There are six Vista variants: For the home, Home Basic, Home Premium, and Ultimate; for businesses, Business and Enterprise; and for emerging markets, Starter.

Secret #4
Want to see what Vista looks like with Aero Glass disabled? Press Ctrl-Shift-F9. (This will work in beta releases only, not production versions.)

Secret #5
You can control volume levels on an application-by-application basis using Vista's new audio control panel.

Secret #6
Having trouble installing a hardware device in Vista? Try using the Windows XP version of the driver.

Secret #7
Press Windows-Tab to get the cool "Flip 3D" view of all your open applications.

Secret #8
In any folder containing image files, click "Slide Show" in Windows Explorer to create a great-looking impromptu slide show, albeit one that takes a decent amount of graphics horsepower. Windows XP's included slide show is rudimentary by comparison.

Secret #9
If you accidentally overwrite a document, you can use Vista's implementation of Volume Shadow Copy to roll back changes—just click on the file and select "Previous Versions" on the Windows Explorer toolbar.

Secret #10
In IE7, hold Control and spin the mouse wheel to zoom in or out on an entire Web page, including graphics.

Secret #11
To show all the shared files and folders on your computer, open File and Printer Sharing from the Control Panel and follow the links.

Secret #12
You can detach gadgets from the Sidebar so they float on your desktop.
