Vista: Lifehacker Vista tips
Posted by cascadehush on January 23, 2007
Ever wish you could save the results of a desktop search so you didn’t have to repeat the search in the future? Windows Vista lets you do exactly that with a new feature called Virtual Folders.
Windows Vista automatically assigns keyboard shortcuts to programs and documents on your Quick Launch bar. Just use the Windows key + the number of the program in the order it appears there.
Much as I dislike it, Vista isn’t all bad.
Of course OSX has had ‘Smart Folders’ for awhile now, and QuickSilver beats just about any other way of launching applications.
Still, these are two handy hits. And if you are going to use vista, you need all the help you can get.
