Windows 7 Service Pack 1 RC [Download]

Windows 7 SP1Last week Windows 7 enjoyed its 1 year birthday bash and it was about time Microsoft roll out the Service Pack 1 of its flagship product. The Release Candidate (RC) version of Windows 7 SP1 has been made available to general public. You need to have RTM version of Windows 7 to install the service pack. In a case where you’ve installed a Beta version of SP1, you need to uninstall it first. The Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 is also made available.

As we told you earlier, Windows 7 SP1 brings nothing drastic to the system. It’s just a collection of minor bug-fixes that were released over previous months. The Windows Server 2008 SP1 has 2 new features – Dynamic memory and Remote FX, as decided. The final version of SP1 is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2011.

PS: The installer performs genuine validation prior to SP1 installation.

Download the new IE9 Beta [Screenshots included]

Microsoft is about to has released the first beta of Internet Explorer 9 and going by its screenshots shared by the Fast Company and ZDNet, IE9 does look promising. It all rests on whether or not the experience of using it is as awesome as the screenshots make it appear.


In our previous post, we discussed the some of the features of IE9 like the ability to pin web apps on the Windows 7 taskbar. This new feature will enable developers to make web-apps (or should I say, a special version of the site) that can be pinned to the taskbar with functions accessible using jumplists.

Pinning a site to Windows 7 taskbar

Internet Explorer 9 is claimed to be developed from scratch and offers full support to HTML5 and CSS3 technologies along with DirectX based GPU graphics rendering for HTML5 content.

Button theme 1

As far as the UI goes, IE9 looks pretty classy. If you have noticed, Windows 7 taskbar buttons take the color theme of the application icon which looks very aesthetic and also helps distinguishing buttons. You will see similar effects in the ‘Forward’ and ‘Back’ buttons of the new IE9. The theme-ing is based on the colors of the favicon.

IE9 Ready apps

Microsoft will has released the first IE9 Beta along with IE9 ready apps like: CNN, eBay, Hulu, ZDNet, Amazon and IMDB. [images courtesy:ZDNet]

Vienna 5 transformation-pack for Windows 7

Vienna 5 transformation-pack for Windows 7

I still remember the time when the first Vista transformation pack was made available for XP and how I went so crazy to download a 31MB file on my dial-up connection. Well, Vista came and gone and even Windows 7 seems so 2009. We need something new, don’t we? So here it is – The Vienna 5 Transformation Pack for Windows 7!

Now don’t ask me why the name Vienna. It’s been one of the most speculated names for the next version of Windows after Vista but that didn’t happen. Maybe to pay a tribute, a deviantArt user, AppliArt named it Vienna 5 Transformation Pack.

Before I give out the download links, enjoy the screenshots:

This transformation pack is available for Windows 7 and Windows XP. Visit the below links and download the required version.

After you download it, run an update available for it by clicking the below link.

WMP 12: Automatically preview songs on mouse hover

Beginner Quick-tip

Windows Media Player 12 is my favorite music player on Windows and it has evolved to a great extent. I have shown some WMP tricks in the past and today I am back again with yet another small trick that will enable / disable automatic preview of songs just by hovering over them. This small tip will work for Windows Media Player 12 that comes bundled with Windows 7.

» First, open up Windows Media Player 12. Click ‘Organize’ > ‘Options’.

WMP 12 - Options

» In the ‘Library’ tab, just check the option ‘Automatically preview songs on track title hover’. Press OK.

WMP 12 - Enable automatic song previews

» Now you can preview songs just by taking your mouse pointer over the title of the song. A small pop-up will appear and the song will start playing immediately when you click ‘Preview’. Moving your mouse away will stop the preview.

Enjoy previewing songs :)
