How Windows 7 is making your electronic affairs convenient

Microsoft latest operating system, Windows 7, comes with a novel feature under which you can guide to friends and families asking for help with their computer problems. To make you able to get rid of the difficulty of guiding others about computer problems Microsoft is coming up with an excellent new solution in the Problem Steps Recorder (PSR).

The beauty of this feature which is being introduced in Windows 7 is that when any application starts misbehaving under Windows 7 Security then all your friends need do is click Start, type PSR and press Enter, then click Start Record. If they work through whatever they are doing then the PSR will record every click and keypress, take screen grabs, and accommodate everything up into a single zipped MHTML file when they’re finished. After completing all this process it will be ready for emailing to you.

The tool is coming with a feature having the ability to burn ISO images to CDs or DVDs. For doing this just double-click the ISO image, choose the drive with the blank disc, click Burn and watch as your disc is created.

Windows 7 will be capable of mounting VHD filed created in the virtual machine hard drive of Microsoft’s Virtual PC. Windows 7 can mount these directly so you can access them in the host system. For performing it, you have to click Start, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter, then click Action > Attach VHD and choose the file you’d like to mount. After doing all this it will appear as a virtual drive in Explorer and can be accessed, copied or written just like any other drive.

In the forthcoming tool, the command line DISKPART utility has also been upgraded with tools aimed to detach a VHD file, and an EXPAND command to increase a virtual disk’s maximum size.
