Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool
When you purchase Windows 7 from Microsoft Store, you have the option to download
an ISO file or compressed files.

Windows 7 ISO file on a USB flash drive or a DVD.
To create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive, download the ISO file and then

Backing Up Your Stuff in Windows 7
Most folks probably know they should make backups.
Unfortunately most don't backup what they probably need the most, their email files!
http://www.marthas-web.com/windows-7/backup-stuff.htm

What is Windows.old?
Once you complete the upgrade, you may notice that your hard drive is much fuller
than before and now you need to install your programs, but you don't have enough
room. What's going on? This is because Microsoft in their infinite wisdom has saved
a lot of your stuff in a folder named 'Windows.old'.

Windows 7
Marthas Windows 7 page There are so many really good sites for Windows 7.
This section on Martha's web is not going to try to compete with those sites.
What will be listed here now and in the future will be a combination of tips and
options that I feel will benefit my readers (and myself!)

Windows 7 AppData
AppData, which is actually a shortened name for application data, is the directory
where Windows 7 stores all of the necessary files to operate your programs.
To view AppData, enable viewing hidden files and folders.

Windows 7 Libraries
Windows 7 includes a feature not found in older versions of Windows.
This feature called Libraries is actually just a collection of shortcuts that make
finding your stuff easier, once you get the hang of it.
