Windows 7

windows7logoThere has been a lot of chatter from Creative Cutter users about the new Windows 7 operating system, and if it’s compatible with your Inspirations. The answer that everyone has been waiting for is yes! You will not have any problems walking through the installation of the Inspiration Studio software. I have heard from several users who are currently up and running and very excited about some of the new features in Windows 7. I have to say some of these features alone make me want to upgrade my current operating system. One of the features I thought was really awesome is the ability to pin the software in the new Super Bar in Windows 7. If you right click the Inspiration Studio software in the Super Bar, you can then select “Pin this Program to the Task Bar”. How awesome is that?! Now you can just simply click the program open from the Super Bar to start working in the software.

Another feature I really liked is the ability to dock to one side of the screen or the other just by pressing the Windows key and using the arrows on your keyboard. What makes this feature so great? Let’s say you have multiple screens open in the software, you can actually view these screens from the Super Bar. Once you find the page you want, just click on it and you can have both screens in front of you at the same time! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted the ability to do this. Now you can copy and paste between pages in the software making it more convenient to add additional images to your project. Of course not all of us are lucky enough to be able to get Windows 7 right away but there is always Christmas!

    What does this mean for those of us with other versions of the Pazzles software?? Good grief, not something I care to even think about! I didn’t even want XP.

    LOL….Loretta…I am ready to go back to the XP after my experiences with VISTA! They don’t even make the XP anymore…I checked. One more thing to think about….

    Eventually, you’ll have to upgrade in order to get features that will only be available in new versions of our software. For now, if you don’t want to upgrade to Windows 7, don’t. I would expect that, at the very least, our next two releases of software will continue to fully support Windows XP, so this isn’t something you need to worry about right now.

    I certainly understand your hesitancy to upgrade. I’m a geek, but changing operating systems or computers is a lot of work I just didn’t need, so I completely skipped Windows Vista on my notebook. I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 after giving it a test drive, and despite the pain, I’m glad I did.

    I’m so glad it will work with Windows 7 I will have to switch soon as this computer is giving me fits and has for the last year running XP!

    I am so glad to hear that is is compatible with the big”7″ but like most people, I am a total creature of habit. So while nothing is ever perfect, I’m a big believer in the if it ain’t broke….don’t fix it ideology. So hopefully when the time comes, I will upgrade. Heck I didn’t want to leave dos to go to windows…total LOL!
