Windows 7 Tip#4


Modify UAC

The User Account Control security feature was one of the most reviled additions to Windows Vista, with good reason -- its constant warning messages asking for permission to continue many operations drove users around the bend. UAC has been significantly improved in Windows 7 so that it's not as intrusive as in Vista, but you can still tweak it if you like.

Here's how to turn UAC on or off, and make it less or more intrusive than the default:

1. Go to the Control Panel --> User Accounts and Family Safety.

2. Click User Accounts, then click Change User Account Control settings.

3. From the screen that appears, use the slider to select the level of protection you want. Here are the four levels and what they mean:

Always notify me. Think of this as UAC Classic. It works like Vista's UAC: When you make changes to your system, when software is installed or when a program tries to make a change to your system, an annoying prompt appears.

Default -- Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer. This is, obviously, the default; make a change yourself and UAC leaves you alone. When a program makes a change, a prompt appears and your desktop goes dark, just like it does in Vista. Otherwise, UAC sits there silently.

Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer (do not dim my desktop). This setting is identical to the default setting, with one difference: It won't dim your desktop so that you only see the UAC prompt asking you to take action. This presents a slightly elevated security risk over the default setting, because theoretically a program could allow a malicious program to interfere with the UAC prompt.

Never notify me when: In this one, UAC is completely turned off. This is, of course, an insecure option and not recommended for most users.

After you make the selection, click OK. Depending on the selection you made, you may need to restart your system for it to take effect.

I have set the screen resoloution to high for my monitor and now get a message saying "screen resoloution to high set to 1680 x 900" but cant reset it as all i get is the message and a blank...


First try shutting system down, unplug tower for 1 minute and restart. Give it time to come up and if that doesn't work, shut it down again and try to start in "safe mode" do you get any screen at all? If you can start in safe mode try going to "control panel'", "device manager" then "personaliztion", and adjust your resolution. If you can't adjust your resolution in safe mode do a "system restore" back to when monitor worked.

Soft ware for window 98.ihave windows visa


When an application fails to run, start the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking on Start \ Control Panel and select 'Use an older program with this version of Windows' listed at the bottom of the side bar.
-Click Next to start the wizard.
-In the next screen, I like to choose the first option instead of hunting around for the program executable. If you do know where the executable resides, select the third option. -Click Next to continue.
-Once the list is displayed, scroll through and find the application you want to run in Compatibility mode. -Click Next to continue.

-Select the version of Windows, the application was originally written to run on. If you do not know, start out with Windows XP (SP2). One advantage of using the wizard is the test mode functionality shown later.
--The next screen list options if your program has problems handling the higher quality video of Vista. For now, click Next to continue. After the wizard completes and the test fails, you will have the option to return to this screen. Experiment with the settings by starting off with disabling visual themes and desktop composition, if you can't get things working.
The below table list definitions for each setting:

  • Run in 256 colors - This forces the entire screen to 256 colors while the application is running
  • Run in 640×480 screen resolution — Runs the program in a smaller-sized window. Try this setting if the graphical user interface appears jagged or is rendered improperly.
  • Disable visual themes - Disables themes on the program. Try this setting if you notice problems with the menus or buttons on the title bar of the program.
  • Disable desktop composition - Turns off transparency and other advanced display features. Choose this setting if window movement appears erratic or you notice other display problems.
  • Disable display scaling on high DPI settings - Turns off automatic resizing of programs if large-scale font size is in use. Try this setting if large-scale fonts are interfering with the appearance of the program.
-Next, if the application requires Administrative privileges, select this option. --Otherwise click Next.
--NOTE--: You will have the option to return to this setting if the program fails to run during the test.
-On the next screen, click Next to test the application. If successful select the first option and click Next to continue.
-If the application failed to run or has problems (such as video), select the second option to go back and make additional changes.
---After a successfull test, select either Yes or No to send information to Microsoft, then click Finish to save your settings.
To reset the compatibility settings back to the original settings, run the wizard again and in the 'Select a compatibility mode for the program', select the last option to 'not apply a compatibilty mode'.
-One big advantage to using the Program Compatibility Wizard, is that you can view which programs or applications are running in compatibility mode by running the wizard and checking the settings column.
-If running an older software application in compatability mode fails, check the software manufacturer site for information or updates to the software.

The font size on my HP Pavillion N5445 is too large. When checking the text size, it is already on smallest and is still too large.


Are all fonts too large or just icon fonts?

You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok
