Disable Windows® 7 Features
The latest Windows 7 allows you to disable Windows 7 features you may not require. You can completely disable Windows 7 default programs like Internet Explorer 8, Windows Search and XPS viewer services and some of the other things on Windows 7 very easily.
In previous editions of operating systems several features were automatically added during the installation process.
In past it was not possible for users to disable these features, as they were included with that version of Windows. For instance, it was not easy to disable Windows 7 default browser. But now it can be done in a fraction of time.
Windows 7 has some features those you won't find in Accessories menu. Here you can activate or de-activate installed parts of Windows such as Games, Internet Explorer and Media Player.
However, remember that Windows features in Vista and Windows 7 are still an integral part of the Windows installation remaining on your hard disk. So, turning off these features does not remove them nor does it reduce the amount of hard disk space used by them.
The features just remain dormant until you re-activate them.
As usual there are several methods to probe Windows Features. The most common methods are given below:
- Start-Control Panel-Programs-Uninstall a program-Turn Windows Features on or Off.
- Start-Search-type windows features-Turn Windows Features on or off.
