3 Windows 7 Features I really like

In addition to my “2 and a bit reasons to wait for Windows 7” post, these are 3 features I really like in Windows 7.

Problem Steps Recorder
User has got a problem that they can’t describe in words?  Get them to record it with the Problem Steps Recorder.

Don’t display empty removable drives
I have one of those 52 in 1 USB Smart Card readers.
52 in 1 usb card readers

Connecting it to a PC, before Windows 7, meant getting all 4 card slots being assigned with drive letters in Explorer.

By default, Windows 7 hides those card slots which are empty (ie. the ones that don’t have a card in them.)


Windows Display Colour Calibration Wizard (DCCW)
Cheaper than using a Spyder for display monitor calibration, DCCW might be good enough for every day users.
