    For those unaware, MS has produced a pretty good guide for Windows 7 users (much more than just a "how to" beginners guide). To quote from the overview on the MS site:

    "The Windows 7 Product Guide provides a detailed look at the many new and improved features in Windows 7. The guide is designed as an accurate source of information that can help you to understand how Windows 7 Simplifies Everyday Tasks, Works the Way You Want, and Makes New Things Possible. The guide is also designed to provide IT Professionals with information about how to Make People Productive Anywhere, Manage Risk Through Enhanced Security and Control, and Reduce Costs by Streamlining PC Management. This is not a help and how to guide. Rather, it provides an overview of the many exciting features in Windows 7 and pointers to more information. The Windows 7 Product Guide is available in both XPS and PDF formats".
    Download it for free at:

    Added afterwards: (Thanks to BATcher for reminding me) The size of the 140 page PDF download is 64 MB)

    Thanks, Peter - probably worth stating that it's a 140-page document, and the PDF version is a 62 MB download.

    Thanks BATcher! Yes, I should have mentiond the size(s) for the two file download options! Nevertheless, it's worth the 64 MB download of the PDF version (140 pages).
    Have a good day.
    Peter.
