Microsoft Desktop Solutions

Windows 7

Nobody likes to wait. That’s why Windows 7 was designed to be more nimble, efficient and responsive. Key improvements over Vista include:

Sleep and resume

Windows 7 is designed to sleep, resume and reconnect to your wireless network more quickly, so your PC is ready when you are.


When hunting for something, you want answers, not delays. In Windows 7, search results pop up faster. Sorting and grouping of search results is also significantly quicker.

USB devices

When you plug in a portable flash drive or other USB device for the first time, Windows 7 can often have it ready for you in seconds. If you’ve used it before, the wait’s even shorter.

Better memory use

Windows 7 has under-the-hood tune-ups that can boost your PC’s overall speed and performance. It uses less memory when it’s idle and less graphics memory when you launch and switch between windows. It’s also designed to run background services like Bluetooth only when you need them.

If memory does run low, ReadyBoost can speed up your computer by using storage space on most USB flash drives and flash memory cards.


Ever need to cut through a cluttered desktop and quickly focus on a single window? Just click the top of a pane and give your mouse a shake. Voila! Every open window (except that one) instantly disappears. Jiggle again—and your windows are back.


Peek gives you the power of X-ray vision, so you can peer past all your open windows straight to the Windows 7 desktop. Simply point to the end of the taskbar and watch open windows instantly turn transparent, revealing all your hidden icons and gadgets.

To quickly reveal a buried window, point to its taskbar thumbnail. Now only that window shows on the desktop.


Snap is a quick (and fun) new way to resize open windows, simply by dragging them to the edges of your screen.

Depending on where you drag a window, you can make it expand vertically, take up the entire screen or appear side-by-side with another window. Snap makes reading, organizing and comparing windows a...well, you get the picture.

Windows 8

Windows 8 is perfect for PCs with touchscreens, those that have a mouse and keyboard, and those with both. Whatever kind of PC you choose, you’ll discover fast and fluid ways to switch between apps, move things around, and move smoothly from one place to another. The desktop that you’re used to in Windows 7—along with the familiar file structure and ways of getting around—is not only still here, it’s even better than it was. And things like Control Panel and Task Manager are faster and easier to find and use.

No matter where you are, or what Windows 8 or Windows RT device you’re using, you can sign in and do all you need to do. Schedule appointments, send mail, work on a presentation, brainstorm together in a video call, or just spend quality time with your friends’ social updates. You can even do two things at once, all on the same screen.

With Windows 8, you can get it all done, from anywhere.
