Windows Aero: User Interface Enhancements

  Jump Lists: A right-click on a program's Taskbar icon will give you access to commonly used Tasks and Frequent content

  Taskbar Peek: Hovering your pointer over a program's Taskbar icon will show you live thumbnail previews of the open windows or documents; hovering your pointer over the thumbnail brings it to the foreground temporarily--clicking it brings it to the foreground to be utilized

  Aero Snap: Dragging a window to the left or right edge of the display will cause the window to fill that half of the screen; you can easily view two webpages or documents side-by-side with Aero Snap

  Aero Peek: Hovering your pointer over the small rectangle next to the time and date will cause all open windows to become transparent, allowing you to view the Desktop; clicking the rectangle will minimize all open windows to the Taskbar; clicking again will restore your windows

Aero Shake: Quickly minimize all the windows on your Desktop except for the one you "shake" by grabbing it and moving the pointer back and forth; see it in action

  Libraries: Libraries make it easier to manage your content--no matter where it is on your computer; documents, music, pictures and videos can be viewed as a single library--regardless if you have multiple folders of each type of content

  Snipping Tool: Capture a screenshot of anything on your Desktop and save the image as HTML, a JPEG, GIF or PNG file

Ease of Access: Windows Accessibility Features including Narrator, Magnifier, On-screen Keyboard and Speech Recognition

  Action Center: Windows 7 will notify you when certain maintenance or security issues--like operating system updates from Microsoft--need your attention. The Action Center consolidates these alerts and allows you to customize how and when you are notified.
