Windows 7: Looking for volunteers to review a document

As in.. looking up the pid? or finding out what DLLs are loaded by svhost? or ??? The drill down procedures are a little mystifying at times but they were on PE too.

Sadly I am not at my W7 machine to look up specifics...

I do seem to remember that there was one or two things missing, but it's always better to exhaust internal resources before installing additional software.

Hi whs,

On my machine , Vista and 7 are on similar size partitions - with a roughly similar amount of used space on each.

Vista has one shadow copy - taking 249mb.

7 has five shadow copies - taking 1.1 gb.

Pretty much the same.

Maybe that is the answer - partition size (used space). My Vista is 30GB and the Win7 is only 17GB (I have a seperate data partition that serves both). The total partition sizes are also different - 183GB for Vista and 43GB for Win7 (on a SSD). OK, now I think I understand.

On 7 (and, if I remember correctly also on Vista), you rt click Taskbar or Start Orb and select PROPERTIES then select Start menu Tab to get to customize.

Also, on 7 - the snipping tool is separate - you can use it even if you uninstalled Tablet pc ( tho. Faststone Capture is better).

CH1-Page 19. You need to rt click the top border of command window to Select Mark.

CH2 -page 4. I notice no difference in the size of each shadow copy between Vista and 7.

CH2-page 15. It might be easier to get them to run checkdisk from windows gui - rt click the drive>Properties>Tools.

I think you may be asking a little too much of them - using Process Explorer, etc.

Some free apps. they may find useful are the Windows Access Panel:

Windows Access Panel

And Fix Windows utility:

Hi SIW2,

I am just in the process of updating my document with all the comments I received from here and elsewhere. I have some questions regarding a couple of your comments. Could you please verify. Thanks.

I think the snipping tool will still work when you disable the snipping tool service in Services (I checked that). If, however you uninstall snipping tool completely (e.g. with vLite), then it will not work.

You actually have to right click on a blank space of the cmd window. Right clicking on the top border can get you to Properties where you can change the appearance of the cmd window.

The next point we have discussed already and I agree with you.

Hiwhs,

I meant even if you uninstall Tablet pc in Windows programs and features - the snipping tool will work on 7 - as it is a separate app.

On Vista , snipping tool will not be available if Tablet pc is uninstalled in Windows Programs and features.


LOL - I am so used to using cmd with insert mode enabled - for me , rt click inserts the last clipboard entry.

Thanks for the clarification. I did not know that there was a Vista/Win7 difference regarding the snipping tool. - Live and learn.

I only found out because I uninstalled Tablet pc on 7 - and found the Snipping tool still there - working fine.

Tbh - I use Fastsone Capture 53 - it's better.

I have FastStone Capture 6.5 and have used it a lot (like in the document). But recently I switched to free Jing Jing | Add visuals to your online conversations which is even better. It has more function (e.g. you can paste into the text boxes, text can be changed any time, colors too, etc.) I programmed F9 (just a setting) to call it and you can make snips (not only full screen) - but it will still capture the fly-outs. Suggest you try it. They also have a pro version where you can capture videos - but only max. 5 minutes. I use WM Capture for that. WM Capture - Super High Quality Video Recorder The $40 investment was really worth it. Here is an example where I captured a PowerPoint Photo Album (with music): - best viewed full screen.

I think you can also look at screen recorder:

Utility Spotlight: Screenrecorder

You could also add a section of useful free utilities.

I looked at Jing a while back - I couldn't remember why I didn't like it.

Downloading and installing it now - it forces you to be online , and sign up for an account - not for me.
