10 cool tools in Windows 7

Display projection

If you give lots of presentations, you'll welcome a new tool in Windows 7 that makes it easy for you to display your Windows 7 portable computer's desktop on a projector. Just press the Windows logo key + P and you'll see the pop-up box shown here.

The first setting is the default and displays on the computer screen only. The second setting clones the display on the computer screen to the projector. The third setting extends the desktop across both the computer screen and the projector, and the fourth setting displays via the projector only and turns off the computer screen.
