Vista Explorer Tips

Mike at www.watchingthenet.com has a dozen Windows Vista tips

When Microsoft re-designed Vista's Windows Explorer interface, greater functionality was included compared to previous versions of Windows. While some of the functionality is easily noticed, a lot of built-in hidden features are not easily found or realized.

Guy from www.computerperformance.co.uk also has a page of advice and links to unlocking the power of vista for you.

Multiple Monitors

I have been working with 2 monitors for years.
This week I upgraded to 3 and after tomorrow will be using 4 (when I pick up a long enough DVI cable to reach)

Already with 3 I have found some productivity gains.
I have 2 22" widescreens as my main monitors and 2 19" widescreens either side of them. As my desk is a curved reception desk (curves through 90 degrees) they sit very nicely on it.
So how did I make it work? Well two BFGTech 8800GTX OC 768Mb video cards (SLI) help - and a massive server case fan to cool them!
I have the 2 19"s either side of the main 22" monitors. So from left to right they are numbers 3, 1, 2, 4
