Windows 7: Win 7 Control Panels

Win 7 Control Panels

For those who prefer running a "control Panel applet" as opposed to drilling thru menus to get there, following may be helpful.
appwiz.cpl
bthprops.cpl
collab.cpl
desk.cpl
Firewall.cpl
hdwwiz.cpl
inetcpl.cpl
infocardcpl.cpl
intl.cpl
irprops.cpl
joy.cpl
main.cpl
mmsys.cpl
ncpa.cpl
powercfg.cpl
sysdm.cpl
TabletPC.cpl
telephon.cpl
timedate.cpl
wscui.cpl

Also see the attached file for a list/description in .doc format.

Question: When will this forum finally begin to accept .docx files? After all, we are talking Win7 here.

I use both but for my most common needs, I use the .cpl format. The "godmode" provides non-menu access to many features.

The ".docx", and other formats such as ".xlsx" have nothing to do with Windows 7 and are in fact Office 2007/2010 file formats. Although Office 97/2003 can also open them if you have loaded the Compatibility Update available from Microsoft.

OT:
I have yet to figure out why some people think that "Windows" and "Office" are the same thing. Often, when I quote a customer for a computer, they ask for something with Windows on it. I also ask if they need Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, etc), to which they reply they need only Windows.

Which is what I provide.

A day later (sometimes sooner), they give me the third-degree because they can't do typing or spreadsheets, and then complain when they need to spend additional money to get Office. They just don't understand that "Microsoft Windows" is an Operating System, and "Microsoft Office" is an Application Suite, sold seperately...

P.S. KarlNooks, nothing against you, but I just wanted to highlight a point, since you mentioned DOCX and Windows 7...

sorry for misunderstanding. I've been involved with computers for more than 40 years and am well aware of the difference between an operating system and an application.

Don't worry about it. I actually woke up in a bad mood this morning, and my fuse is a bit short as far as computers are concerned.

As Peter has said, the .docx files are from Microsoft Office 2007/2010, which is an application as opposed to Microsoft Windows, which is an operating system. There is, however, a way to attach files here where the file type is not one of those listed and that is to zip the file(s) into a folder with the .zip extension and then attach that.
