More Hidden Windows 7 Features

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

Aside from the original “godmode” and the pantheon of additional “godmode” text strings, there are some other worthwhile features hidden beneath the surface of Windows 7.

Dwight Silverman of the Houston Chronicle recently pointed out a couple other Easter Egg-style discoveries. First of all, if you know where and how to look you can uncover a variety of international wallpaper and themes that exist on your hard drive, but are not made readily available by default.

Silverman also describes a different way to use the Aero functionality of Windows 7. Aside from being able to maximize a window or slam it to the left or right half of the screen, you can also get the window to simply fill the width it already has but occupy the full height of the screen by grabbing the top or bottom of the window and stretching it all the way to the top…or bottom, as the case may be.

Got any other favorite features or Easter Eggs we should know about? Feel free to comment here or send them to me.
