Laptop access point in Windows® 7
Do you want to know Wi-Fi access point in laptops with Windows 7 and the important features of the operating system?
You can turn a Windows 7 laptop into an access point with a new feature called hosted network. The wireless hosted network is an advanced WLAN feature supported on Windows 7 and on Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed. This feature can perform two main functions; the physical wireless adapter virtualization in more than one virtual wireless adapters, sometimes known as virtual Wi-Fi and a software-based wireless access point (AP) sometimes referred to as a SoftAP that depends on a designated virtual wireless adapter. The enabling or disabling of the wireless hosted network enables or disables both virtual Wi-Fi and SoftAP.
Following are some of the useful features of Windows 7:
- Jump Lists
- Performance improvements
HomeGroup helps you to avoid the headache out of sharing files, devices, and printers on a home network. If you connect two or more systems running Windows 7, HomeGroup makes it easy to automatically start sharing your music, pictures, video, and the document libraries with the other systems in home. HomeGroup is password-protected and you could provide password to all of the systems and you are ready to go. You could decide what gets shared and what stays private, or you could decide what things are to be shared with the other systems. You could also make your files read only so other people could not make any changes to those files.
Jump Lists is a new feature in Windows 7. This feature could help you to take you right to the documents, pictures, songs, or websites you access frequently.

Jump lists are application dependent, which shows the list according to the application. This is not the short cut of the files. Sometimes they also provide quick access to commands for things like composing new e-mail messages or playing music.
