Microsoft Windows 7 Tricks

This is what I like most in Windows 7. There are a lot of things which have been made easier in Windows 7. One of them is creating a restore point, which is quite complex to generate in previous versions of Windows. As the name reflects its function, system restore is one of the great features of Windows 7 that lets you retain the system files to their parent form. Actually system restore points are generated automatically during every Windows 7 session, but it is mandatory to generate a restore point manually when you are going to install additional drivers or about to upgrade your existing file or repair your Windows Registry. It will help you to back-up your system and also it enables you to switch back to its previous version.
