Previous version in Vista

This is a tip from Esther I actually knew about, but I think it’s skill informative for others. So what does previous versions in Vista actually mean. Have you ever overwritten a file, or made some changes and pressed save instead of save as. This can happen and you really need to go back to the previous version. So with Vista you can right click your file and revert to an earlier version.

Live icons in Windows Vista – Previewing your search results

Did you know you could preview your data in Windows Vista? You are probably thinking of previewing found images using the movie strip viewing option. I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about excel files. I did absolutely not know you could do this. Using Windows Vista search you can preview found excel files in a outlook like preview pane. Really cool stuff. When you are done you can even save your search action. This way you don’t have to type in your search term and set parameters every time.
