Windows 7: From XP to Windows 7 - Tutorial for Advanced User?

From XP to Windows 7 - Tutorial for Advanced User?

Hi,

Thanks for reading. I am a very advanced user in the I.T field and love XP. When Vista came out I would not go near it but I hear good things about Windows 7 and I'm ready to make the switch.

Given that I am an advanced user and dislike user-friendliness in my OS, I was wondering if anyone knows of a Video Tutorial of Windows 7 geared for advanced users of XP that I could download/obtain.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Regards,

AlfaMale.

You could probably link back to a tutorial (with permission) .. but as far as downloading or copying, it belongs to the writer.

Please keep in mind that Windows 7 is NOT windows XP.
What works in XP, is more than likely not suitable in 7.

Do Not Treat Them The Same.

There are lots of similarities, but as for tweaking, and other garbage you could do in or get away with in XP, about 99.8% of it is not needed, or will not work in 7.

Hey Tepid, I see what you mean. In that case, do you know of an advanced video tutorial of Windows 7? From what I've seen most tutorials are in paper form and are geared for beginners; I have no patience for that!

Let me know...

Thanks,

AlfaMale

What specifically are you looking for?
I haven't really found or used any. With your knowledge, there isn't too much more that you need to know.

I can recommend some books......

Amazon.com: Windows 7 Administrator's Pocket Consultant (9780735626997): William R. Stanek: Books

Get the 3 book bundle found under Frequently Bought Together

, that is pretty much everything you need.
