When browsing a long page sometimes it’s great to know a shortcut to get back to the top of the page. Hitting the Home button on your keyboard is the usual approach but the Home button is not in a great flowing position. Recently I discovered that hitting the TAB key does the same thing. The TAB key is on the left on keyboards too and in a perfect position to tap to bring you page back to top without taking your right hand off the mouse.
Windows 7 automatically lowers speaker volume when it detects communication activity (A microphone-enabled game or a Skype online sound for example). You can turn this off though.
Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound -> Audio properties -> Communications tab
Select Do Nothing from the dropdown box. Apply & OK.

Did you know you can easily resend an Outlook message. This is a great tip I have just discovered.
Instead of forwarding it again and having to re-edit the message etc etc you can simply find the tab Resend Message.

By default, Windows 7 uses the default Aero theme which includes things like a transparent taskbar and transparent windows and includes Aero peek that lets you see your desktop or program preview when you hover your mouse over any open program. These are all nice, but unnecessary. Having sounds enabled also uses up system resources.
Right click on your desktop, select “Personalize” and scroll down to the “Basic and High Contrast Themes” and select “Windows 7 Basic”.
At the bottom of this window, you should also see and icon called “Sounds”. Click this and in the popup window under the “Sound Scheme” select “No Sounds” and click OK.
You’ll be surprised how fast your computer now performs!
