I’m still exploring this new computer but I’m finding thing I like about Windows 7 more and more each day. Like the program I’m using right now! Anyone out there use Windows Live Writer???
I love it! It’s like I’m writing something in Word. An easy click of the button and I change fonts or colors all just like I would in Word. Ctrl+K and I add a hyperlink … Ctrl+L and I add a picture. Then I’m done and I hit Publish and voila it appears in my blog!
So much better than working in blogger! You have no idea how long it used to take to import pictures. They all come to the top of the post and then you have to drag them down because Copy and Paste don’t work. Now I can import them right where I want them to be and I can even edit them right there!
I’m also a huge fan of having sticky notes on my desktop. Especially during the holidays it was so nice to have a running list of all the orders I had to fill and the order they came in on so I didn’t have to run to Etsy. It was nice to have a separate list for the orders that I was waiting on the yarn to come in so I could give better shipping time estimates.
My other favorite? Having a little weather icon. I have two actually. One for where I live and one for where my parents live. It makes me feel a bit more connected to home and gives me a good reason to call and complain that it’s colder here than it is in the frozen tundra of northern Wisconsin.
So there … Consider me a fan of Windows 7!
Until the next time …
