Windows 7 Tips

Some inputs to you based on my experience with windows 7. This blog will keep on updating with the feature/tips about Windows 7, so you can keep looking for some tips from here.

1. Bluetooth device, not able to connect to windows 7: If you have some problem with connecting any bluetooth device with Windows 7 , check whether your Windows 7 – Startup folder ( Startup folder can be found @ your Windows7 – Start program list)  has the shortcut to BTTray.exe. If not, add a shortcut to ”C:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Software\BTTray.exe”. This need to executed during your Windows 7 startup.

2. Cannot find Recycle Bin @ Desktop: To add a shortcut to Recycle Bin @ your windows 7 desktop,  right click Desktop, select Personalize ( or you can select Personalization from the location   Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization ).  From the left side bar select the “Change desktop icons” and select the Recycle Bin check box :

3.Add/Remove the “Dell Dock” drop down from startup: You might have noticed the Dell Dock feature of Windows 7. Please find below the screen shot:

To remove this drop down list of applications from the Desktop, you can kill the DellDock.exe from the Task Manager process list. To remove it from startup, remove the DellDock shortcut from the Startup folder which has a link to the application ”C:\Program Files\Dell\DellDock\DellDock.exe”
