Microsoft confidential reports from me will present to you how Microsoft Windows take over your PC with their various of products. You will know why you still live with Windows
Magnifier Tool – Windows magnifier tool can be very useful, particularly on today’s super-high-resolution monitors. Getting to it manually takes a while, but there’s a quick way of doing it. Just hold [Windows] and pres [+] to zoom in. By default this double the size objects on screen and follows your mouse cursor around. You can zoom in further by pressing the key combination again, all the way up to a rather extreme 1,600 per cent. To zoom out again, just use [Windows] + [-]. When you are finished, click the magnifying glass icon, then close the magnifier window.
System Checkup – your Vista includes a great diagnostics system so you can give it a good check without any effort. The System Health Report Generator is tucked away in a corner of the Performance and Reliability Monitor, so we’d forgive anyone for not knowing it was there. Press [Windows] on your keyboard, type perform info, then hit [Enter]. In the left-hand pane, choose ‘Advance Tools’, then select Generate a health report’. It will take a little while to run through, but eventually you’ll get a full report of your current system status. Now all you need to do is interpret it.
Copy an Error Message – Sometimes things go wrong and an error message pops up. You might be tempted to reach for a pen and paper to scribble down what it says for later investigation, but there’s a clever investigation way to take a note of what’s gone wrong: just press [Ctrl]+[C] white the message is on screen. This is the standard Windows ‘copy’ command. Now open Notepad or Wordpad, and press [Ctrl]+[V] for paste. The entire error message – title bar, buttons and all – will appear in text form, ready to be sent to technical support.
