14+ Windows 7 Tips in 14 Minutes for End Users (with video)

I’m going to record a lot more videos in 2012 and build up my TV channel on YouTube (Suite Minute with Peggy Duncan). I bought a more powerful laptop so I could upgrade and buy different video editing software. The laptop came pre-loaded with Windows 7, and this is my first exposure to it. I figured I may as well make a recording of what I was learning. The video below covers the features I’ve been using every day. It’s 12+ (at least 14) tips in just under 14 minutes..

For more training, I’m giving my own public seminars, workshops, and Webinars in Atlanta. And I can travel internationally to speak at your location.
