Free Windows Vista Tutorials

Most basic computer users only need to know a few things about their operating system. In Windows Vista Tutorials we will cover the basics of Windows Vista. We will start with the Start Menu, desktop and screen saver then move through the control panel and explore the topics of user accounts, display options, printers and mouse. We will then move onto file structure and windows updates. If you would like to jump around you can access each of these tutorials in the links above. Enjoy the easy to follow tutorials and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Let's get start with learning about your start menu and desktop.
The Windows Vista start menu is where you will find and access all of your programs and settings. There are 2 looks to your start menu, classic and the default version. Windows Vista default Start Menu will look like this.

The left hand column is a list of recently used programs and will change as you use your computer. The right hand column is where you will see the classic options of the start menu.
Windows users may prefer using the classic version that looks more like Windows 98 and Windows 2000. The classic version is less cumbersome and will only display one column with the Main Windows options on the bottom and only 4 recently used programs on the top.
If you prefer the classic look you can change the look of your start menu by right clicking on the lower blue bar and clicking properties.

A Window will appear and you will need to click on the Start Menu Tab and lick the Classic Start Menu Button the click OK to make the change.

That wraps up the Start Menu Options.

MVVMLight and Async

With Windows 8 just around the corner and many developers running for the ship to get up to speed with the new brave world (even those who have frowned at the new Metro interface and possibly wont touch it themselves, still see the value in writing apps / games for the platform to sell).

One of the biggest hurdles I've found and seems reflected in colleagues and peers is the new Async framework, granted to those who have followed the Task framework it's no big shock and a simple evolution, but for those of us who left it in their "Read it Later" pile it is a bitter pill to swallow. That being said however once you have "tested the waters" so to speak will find it's not that different from what we already know it's just another way of tackling the problem of offloading work and marshalling it back for use, but cleaner and easier to read and some notable performance gains by letting the compiler and CLR handle it for us.
