College of Charleston’s Information Technology department has exciting news! Windows 7 will soon be deployed to faculty, staff, and classroom PCs across campus.

Windows 7 simplifies computer security, making it easier to reduce the risk of damage caused by viruses, spyware, and other malware. Windows 7 also features an improved backup solution to help keep your information safe.

Here are some of the enhancements that you can look forward to seeing.


  • Advanced Search feature through the Start menu.
  • Aero Shake to quickly minimize every open window except the one you’re shaking.
  • Redesigned Taskbar to help you manage your most important files and programs.
  • To easily access, you can Pin any application to the taskbar.
  • Aero Peek to take a quick look at other open windows without clicking away from the window you are working in.


By moving to Windows 7, the college will ultimately benefit from a fully operational, reliable, and supported operating system.
