More On Windows 7

One of my favorite websites is They recently had an article on some Windows 7 shortcuts. I love keyboard shortcuts:

Win+Home: Clear all but the active window.
Win+Space: All windows become transparent so you can see through to the desktop.
Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window.
Shift+Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window vertically.
Win+Down arrow: Minimize the window/Restore the window if it's maximized.
Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the window to each side of the monitor.
Shift+Win+Left/Right arrows: Move the window to the monitor on the left or right.

I'm a PC

I installed Windows 7 over the weekend. I just did an in-place upgrade. I went from Vista Home Premium (32bit) to Windows 7 Home Premium (32bit). I know it’s always better to do a clean install of a new operating system but I really didn’t want to go through the iTunes mess I went through a year ago.

A clean install would have formatted my drive and I would have had to recover my extensive 324 gigabyte iTunes library from my backup drive (aka The Tank). For some reason only known to Steve Jobs iTunes makes the process of moving an iTunes library an inconsistent pain in the ___. I hate iTunes but I sold my soul... I’m an idiot and I could design a better interface than iTunes.

So, the in-place upgrade was my work-around.

The upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 worked great. No significant problems.

I really like the new taskbar. I really like the customizable libraries. All the Aero stuff looks great.

Microsoft, you done good.
