Windows 7 in a Box – Access All System Settings in One Place
Windows 7 in a Box is free software which allows you to easily access almost all system settings in one place. It provides speedy access to more than 160 important Windows 7 applets, programs, system folders, internet settings and more.
You can open Desktop Personalization, Task Manager, Registry Editor, Device Manager, UAC Settings, Paint, Notepad, Calculator and many other useful system programs. You can even log off, restart or shut down your system using this small utility.
There are no fancy graphics here, you don’t get some recreation of Control Panel (only bigger): instead Windows 7 in a Box organizes its functions into 6 entirely ordinary text menus, and you have to browse these to choose the option you need.
If you need to access Windows 7′s Data Execution Prevention settings, for instance, it’s no use typing in Data Execution or DEP into the system or Control Panel search boxes: nothing relevant will appear. With Windows 7 in a Box, though, just click Tools > Data Execution Prevention and the relevant dialog will pop up.
And it’s just as easy to, say, display the current Windows version, open the Administrative Tools folder, launch the Install a Program from the Network function, and carry out a host of other functions.
This isn’t really for Windows beginners. There’s no way to search for specific functions, and many of the menu options will mean little to the inexperienced, anyway. If you’re a PC novice, for instance, you’ll probably have no idea what clicking Internet Settings > Netstat will do: only the more knowledgeable will realise it’s going to display currently open network connections.
It can be useful as a handy way to access some of Windows 7′s more obscure tools, though. So if you’re more experienced, but still forget how to access items like the Data Execution Prevention settings occasionally, then Windows 7 in a Box just might be able to help.
