Windows 7 Help & Advice - - CONTENTS -

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut, but the first day of spring is a wel­come re­minder that life moves on – and so does your PC. If you’ve been trundling along for the past year or are feel­ing in­creas­ingly jaded, now is the per­fect time to give your com­puter a shot in the arm. Not only will you give it a cos­metic makeover, but you’ll also tighten your se­cu­rity and find ways in which to make us­ing it less of a chore and more of a dream.

We’ll open with the cos­met­ics, re­veal­ing how to over­haul your desk­top’s ap­pear­ance, not sim­ply for a fresh new look, but with the op­por­tu­nity to change the way it works – for the bet­ter, of course. We’ll con­tinue the theme by re­or­gan­is­ing your hard drive and re­veal­ing fur­ther ways in which you can do more with your desk­top. Then it’s on to your apps, as we re­veal mod­ern al­ter­na­tives for old favourites that find it in­creas­ingly hard to keep up with Win­dows 10. Fi­nally, we’ll give your se­cu­rity a good re­fresh, en­sur­ing your ex­ist­ing soft­ware is still up to scratch while re­veal­ing ways in which you can tighten it fur­ther.
