How to Make windows behave like MAC

Multitasking is an important feature of modern computing and one of the most confusing.

Window 7 has some new features to help,Apple users however reckon they've got the best solution with Expose,a feature of Mac OS X that shows everything arranged flat,making it easy to spot what you want to glance.

To get similar functionality in windows, you'll need DExposE2. This is free to download, designed for vista but works fine in window 7 too.

1. Visit http://tinyurl.com/dexpose in your web browser, click Download Now and save the file to your desktop. Double-click the download to install the program. When its done it will launch automatically and new icon will appear in the system tray at the bottom right of the screen. Open selection of applications and hit the F9 key on your keyboard. Doing so turns a cluttered desktop...

2. into this...Each open window is scaled down so they all fit side by side. To select the one you're interested in simply click it. Or press F9 again or Esc to return to normal.

3. If this is too busy for your liking press F10 to show only windows belonging to the current application.

4.Click Start, All Programs, DExposE2, Settings to view its preferences, or simply double-click the icon in the System Tray. In the Behaviour pane you can specify your own hotkeys if you use F9 AND F10 in other programs.


Well hope that was helpful please comment and leave feedback

thanks

what is the difference between windows 7 editions: starter, home basics, home premium,ultimate, professional,interprice?what is the difference between service pack 1 & 2???pc


Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):[6]
Windows 7 Starter Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[7]This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.[1][8][9] Windows 7 Home Basic Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries.[10] Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features.[1] Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.[11] Windows 7 Home Premium This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.[12] Windows 7 Professional This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users.[1] It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain.[1] Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB),[13] operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.[1] Windows 7 Enterprise This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.[14] Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis.[1] Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so.[1] Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.[1] All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.[15]

Ever since I downloaded Apple's latest iPad update my orientation lock has become a mute lock and I can't stop my orientation from moving. Any ideas?


In order to use orientation lock with the new update:
  1. Double-click the iPad's home button, bringing up the multitasking menu with all programs you are currently running.
  2. Swipe your finger to the left while in the multitasking area.
  3. The orientation lock is now controlled through a software feature rather than the physical mute button.
  4. Tap the orientation lock icon (circular arrow furthest to the left) to engage it.
  5. In this menu you can also quickly change brightness settings and music controls.
A new feature rumored in iOS 4.3 (the next iOS iteration) will allow for the iPad's user to set whether the physical button controls orientation, or act as a mute switch.
