It includes a number of new features, such as advances in touch and handwriting recognition, this is the ability of a computer to receive and interpret intelligible handwritten input from sources such as paper documents, photographs and other devices. The image of the written text might be sensed 'off line' from a piece of paper by optical scanning.

Given below are tips to help you improve the the Performance of Windows 7:
- Performance trouble shooter
- Delete programs
- Limit programs at startup
Performance trouble shooter
The Performance troubleshooter checks issues that slow down your computer's performance, such as how many users are currently logged onto the computer and whether multiple programs are running at the same time. This is the step to overcome this, Open the Performance troubleshooter by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and click Troubleshooting. Under the System and Security, click Check for performance issues.
It's a good idea to uninstall all the programs you do not plan to use. This should include both manufacturer-installed software and software you installed yourself but do not want any more, especially utility programs designed to help manage and tune your computer's hardware and software. Utility programs like virus scanners, disk cleaners, and backup tools often run automatically at startup, quietly chugging along in the background where you couldn’t see them.
Limit programs at startup
Many programs are designed to start automatically when the Windows starts. Software manufacturers set their programs to open in the background, where you could not see them running, so they would open right away when you click their icons. That is helpful for programs you use a lot, but for programs you rarely or never use, this wastes precious memory and slows down the time it takes Windows to finish starting up.
