Is there a key combo that changes screen orientation?

Hi This morning our cat walked across the keyboard of my wifes computer. It changed the screen orientation to portrait. My wife didn't know how to change it back so she had to wait until I got home to fix it. Nothing sharpens your concentration like having your mouse work at right angles. But I've looked and I can't find anyway that the cat could have changed it. This is a Dell Studio lap top running Windows 7 HP. Anyone know how this could happen I can't even count the number of times that the cat has turned off her WiFi! LOL But that at least I can understand. Mike

windows 7 slower to boot in comparison with ubuntu

Just did a comparison with my Acer 1,7 mhz dual processor 3 gb; OS Ubuntu 9 and my brand new HP dv6 2,3 mhz AMD turion dual processor and 6 gb; OS 64 bit Win7; From boot to 'on the web' (64 bit IE with the HP and Firefox with the Acer) is my windows 7 system no less than 30 seconds SLOWER than my Ubuntu. Also very disappointed with the whole 'vista' experience, I was hoping there would be a completely new lay-out with windows 7 but for me it looks like some specced up Vista... (which was crap anyway). A bit of a bummer if you ask me, other people who share my opinion

Tiny system windows on 30" screen

Hi , have you ever tried to take a thing, why some system windows {msconfig, etc} is impossible to enlarge It is silly, {and really frustrating}, when I have almost 30" LCD and I have to scroll in both directions in tiny 10 x 15 cm window, without any possibility to scale it up, when I am looking for something. I understand, that 15 years ago, with 14" CRT, there was no need for enlarging... What the hell is wrong Maybe the programmer, who is responsible for this died 10 years ago... Maybe it's Microsoft philosophy...

Locking down windows for public system

, I am putting together a computer system to be used at bars and clubs etc. It is going to contain a piece of software that will be able to run music videos out of it. Basically I want to be able to boot the system into windows 7 and have it appear on the Desktop with my icons. The icons will then be shortcuts to different parts of the software, help manual etc. I want the start menu to be minimal, maybe only have the following. - User Name - My documents - Limited Control Panel - Devices and Printers - Shut down and logoff - And a list of the shortcuts from the desktop --------------------- - I want to disable Right click on the desktop and anywhere inside folders, yet remain inside of software. - Make it so the desktop background cannot be changed. - Maybe a way to disable any display on boot up so the systems Hardware is not displayed, still have the option to boot into Bios, boot menu etc but this is pass worded. No doubt there is allot more I'd like to have locked down, but I'll get into that more later if I can get started on this. Now I have been doing a little reading, only recently started with this area of my development so help will be appreciated. So far all I know is that allot can be done from the 'gpedit.msc' tool but how is this applied to a user account that boots straight up. So an admin account is separate and obviously has everything enabled. From what ive read everythign applied in the gpedit is applied to all users, (work around on this) Have also been told there may be 3rd party software out there that could aid with this Anybody know of anyhting

Are there really 800,000 Windows 7 apps?

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer may not have shared many (any) new tidbits about Microsoft futures, but he did whip through a lot of stats during his Consumer Electronics Show (CES) keynote on January 6. One of those stats only caught my attention this morning, when I saw a couple of folks tweet it. Ballmer said during his keynote last night that there are now over 800,000 new unique Windows 7 applications that are building on its new features and capabilities. Wow, I thought: Where are all these apps Did Ballmer include in his count custom, line-of-business Windows apps that early Windows 7 adopters are fixing so they can work with Windows 7 Or was there some secret cache of touch-enabled, Jump-List-friendly programs I had somehow overlooked Were independent software vendors waiting in the wings to roll out a bunch of new, secret Windows 7 wares that no one knew about Nope. Alas, it turns out Ballmer may have added a 7″ some embellishment to his claim that wasnt supposed to be there. There are over 800,000 Windows 7-compatible apps out there, a Microsoft spokesperson clarified today, not 800,000 Windows-7-optimized apps More............http://blogs.zdnet.com/microsoft/p=...t+Microsoft%29

32 bit vista to 32 bit windows 7 memory problem

. I just upgraded from vista 32 bit to Win 7 32 bit and i am noticing a problem with the memory management. I have 4 Gb in my system, but windows is only using 2GB. I understand that 32 bit systems do not use anything over 4 GB, but when i had vista it used 3.5 GB out of the 4. So why now have i lost 1.5 GB in usable memory when i upgraded to windows 7 Thank you for your help.
