Why Windows 7 Professional
After Windows Vista, Windows 7 Professional is the newer operating system from Microsoft. The Windows 7 Professional operating system, like all editions of this name, is aimed at professional users and the corporate sector. A lot has therefore changed: Optimizations have been made both in the visual area, such as the user interface, as well as system and security-related, such as with the revised Windows Explorer and the new Security Center.
Increased performance and intuitive operation
For Microsoft, user-friendly operation is of utmost importance, and so the interface of some applications and of the system itself has been improved with the release of Windows 7 Professional. Many programs, such as Paint and WordPad, have been given a ribbon interface in Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, as this has been the case since Microsoft Office 2007. On the other hand, the sidebar (familiar from Vista) has been removed.
Widgets can now be placed directly on the desktop as desired. The Windows 7 Professional operating system runs faster overall than its predecessor, which is also due to the lower system requirements despite numerous optimizations. The Windows 7 Professional operating system also brings the new DirectX 11, which is responsible for the performance increase in the “Graphics” area. Microsoft Windows 7 Professional now supports alternative input devices like tablet PCs with various functions such as multi-touch.
Program innovations in the Windows 7 Professional operating system
Performance enhancements and interface optimizations are not the only points that are made available to you with Microsoft Windows 7 Professional. New programs and features help you speed up your workflow and control it more easily:
- Libraries: virtual folders in Windows Explorer for quick data management.
- Maintenance Center: New security center (virus scanner and firewall monitoring)
- Voice control and output: assistance for users with limited abilities
- Device Stages: Display of common actions for external devices
- Error logging program: For detailed problem report logging
- Set up home network groups automatically
- Find content and programs faster with improved Windows Search
As an optimization step, the Windows 7 Professional operating system also removed various programs and functions, such as the classic Start menu, features of the taskbar, as well as Windows Media Player and other Explorer elements. In return, you get even more new stuff. Microsoft Windows 7 Professional supports Windows Server Domains, for example. The XP mode allows you to run older programs on Windows 7 Professional. In addition, after the mainstream support phase with the Windows 7 Professional operating system has expired, you still get extended support.
Security with the Windows 7 Professional operating system
Windows 7 Professional is not only user-friendly and powerful; Microsoft has also given equal priority to security in its new version. For example, the operating system now supports biometric authentication using fingerprints as standard. Compared to Windows Vista, the user account control in Microsoft Windows 7 Professional can now be set in stages. This works with a whitelist of system programs, which are automatically given administration rights. In order to increase possibly critical applications in the safety level, a Blacklist of the appropriate programs can be led. These are treated separately during execution and always cause a confirmation window before. To keep your system secure, it is always kept up to date with updates from Microsoft in the form of certified drivers and fixes.
With Windows 7 Professional, you get the ideal operating system for your company or for higher demands in the private environment. The advanced features help you to get the most out of your computer.
