Windows 7 Tutorials
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   12 years ago

Windows 7 was released today. I just ordered my copy.

I've been reading up on it for the past few months (books, technical reviews, etc.) and it looks promising.

So far, a bunch of you have indicated you want to see a Windows 7 tutorial, so I've added TWO items to the Waiting Lists for Windows 7.

The first is an "Upgrading to Windows 7" seminar which is for all of you who want to see the changes from Windows XP or Vista to Windows 7. You can vote for that here:

  - Upgrading to Windows 7 Seminar

I am also planning a whole series of tutorials on Windows 7. I didn't really cover much in my Windows Vista series (only two basic lessons) because there really wasn't a lot of interest in it. The media (and Apple) did a pretty good job of painting Vista as a black sheep, even though I personally haven't had any problems with it [knock on wood] outside of programming issues (because of it's tighter security). However, if you want to vote for the Windows 7 Series, click here:

  - Windows 7 Basic Series

Note that the two aren't mutually exclusive. Feel free to vote for BOTH. I'll build whichever one has more votes first.

Now back to the Excel seminar I'm working on...

I am forced to start using Microsoft. I would like to get a tutorial on Windows 7 Pro 32 bit. Do you have such a CD?

Reply from Richard Rost:

Hi Richard. I do not have any tutorials specific to Windows 7. I do have two lessons for Windows Vista which was very similar. All of my new lessons are going to be for Windows 8.1. Read More...

I have a new Gateway machine w/ Windows 7 Home Premium. I like the Library concept or virtual files and folders.  Eagerly awaiting 599CD Tutorials.

I just upgraded from windows xp to windows 7. You must back up all your programs, which I did and I found it not to be to difficult. If you can get somebody to help you that knows about the computers,I would get them. I was lucky to find such an individual. I am glad that I upgraded to wondows 7. It is really nice.

Yeah, I still haven't figured out how to get around that "unapproved startup programs" problem for my UpdateNotify program. It's supposed to load up when your PC starts and then check my web site to see if there are new updates once a day. Vista and W7 won't let it start up automatically.

I just upgraded from Vista Ultimate 64 bit  to Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit using the direct upgrade option. I was tempted to do a clean install even though an in place upgrade was available, but I figured "what the heck" I'd give the direct upgrade a try. Read More...

I have the same opinion about upgrading from Vista to W7 as I did about upgrading from XP to Vista... "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Sure, I would love to sell everyone new training lessons teaching Windows 7, but the truth is there really isn't anything ABSOLUTELY COMPELLING you to upgrade. There aren't any new ground-shaking features that W7 has that you HAVE to get. Read More...

I have heard that the differences in the two are small. Is it worth upgrading to Windows 7?  If so what are the advantages.
