Windows 7 is the latest release of Microsoft. This introduces many of the new features and the user can simplify daily tasks. Jump lists in Windows 7 keeps track of all the files and folders that you have visited recently and this helps to access them easily for later usage.
Snap is a quick new way to resize open windows, just by dragging them to the edges of your screen.
