Windows 7 introduces a number of user interface changes to make life easier for users. Here we've highlighted just a few of them.
The cleaned-up desktop of Windows 7 does away with the Sidebar in Vista and instead lets users position Gadgets anywhere on the screen.
Windows 7 offers one-click access to available networks from the Taskbar via this pop-up menu.
Built-in applications such as Paint and Wordpad (pictured) now have an Office-style ribbon menu.
Libraries in Windows Explorer group together content such as music or video, no matter where the files are stored on the computer or your network.
Jump Lists, such as this one from Windows Media Player, provide quick access to functions and recently accessed files in applications on the Taskbar.
Users can easily see what windows they have open, even multiple tabs in Internet Explorer, as shown in this image.
