Download the Windows 7 Product Guide

Think you know know all there is to know about Windows 7? If you've been following all of our coverage, then you'll have a pretty good idea what's new in Microsoft's latest operating system.

But just in case you're craving for more, Microsoft has posted a new document for download on its website called the Windows 7 Product Guide. Composed of 140 pages, the Windows 7 Product Guide "provides a detailed look at the many new and improved features in Windows 7."

The guide includes sections that explains how "Windows 7 Simplifies Everyday Tasks, Works the Way You Want, and Makes New Things Possible."

Microsoft said that the guide is targeted at both end users and IT professionals to inform how to "Make People Productive Anywhere, Manage Risk Through Enhanced Security and Control, and Reduce Costs by Streamlining PC Management."

Those looking for instructions or support should probably look elsewhere, as this is just an overview of new features and functionality. The Windows 7 Product Guide is available in both XPS and PDF formats, with the Microsoft format being 30.5 MB and the Acrobat format being 62 MB. Download it here.

    This is useful, up until seeing a commercial about it, I didn't even know about the feature that allows you to drag windows to the left or right and windows maximizes it to half the screen, very useful btw (well at least for people who use only 1 monitor). I will definitely look through this.

    "Think you know know all there is to know about Windows 7?"

    It would be better as "Windows 7, you think you know know!"

    I appreciate that the author of this article had it in himself to write a news article which isn't filled with his own personal biases.

    Thank You.

    Thumbs up here! Great article Marcus, unbiased, natural, and professional. Continue writing articles this way and the negativity that people have against you will "disappear".

    As for this guide, it is a good guide to read, it reveals some things that people didn't know about Windows 7.
