Controlling User Account Controls In Windows 7

The latest two versions of the Windows operating systems; Windows 7 and Windows Vista, released by Microsoft, contained high-level advanced security features as compared to previous releases like Windows XP or Windows 2000. The earlier version treated every user of the system as an administrator by default. However, this is modified in the latter versions allowing only one user profile to hold administrative control over the system. Still, Windows 7 and Windows Vista have a utility called the User Account Control, which allows users to elevate permissions if required or prompted. Windows 7 has Windows support, so that you can control the behavior of the UAC, and do not get prompts for permissions. Use the following instructions to make the necessary changes in UAC.

  • Start your Windows 7 powered computer and log in to your profile as you would normally. Once your desktop appears, check if any background application is running. Close these applications immediately.
  • On the lower left corner of your desktop, you will notice a Windows Start orb. Click on this orb to open the Start menu. In the top right of the Start menu, you will see your profile’s picture. Click on this account picture to open a window from where you can make changes in your user account profile. Now select the option labeled as Change User Account Control Settings.
  • Now keep an eye out for the User Account Control options slider. The user Account Control’s default option is to notify you only when the programs try to modify some aspect in your system’s configuration. This also notifies the user when a new program is getting installed on the system. There is an option below that does the same thing, but dims your desktop in the process. There is another option at the bottom of the list which completely eliminates any prompts for permissions. This is labeled as the Never Notify option. So move the slider to the bottom of the options window.
  • Click on OK. The User Account Control may prompt you to confirm your action once more, and the ask you to reboot the system. Do this, and the reboot process saves these applied changes to your system.
If you have any issues in your Windows system, contact experts at Windows support to troubleshoot all your issues. The technical assistants at Windows support are very quick to address your issues, and do it in a prompt and effective manner.

For instance, if you want to forward an email from your Outlook application to another email application or webmail service, you can do so without any hindrance. All you would have to do is create a new rule for the operation. Outlook has a built-in rule option, which users can customize based on their emailing requirements. Well, if you have thought that creating a new rule in Microsoft Outlook would take indefinite span of time, you are certainly wrong. All it takes you is a couple of minutes and all you need to know is the following steps. If you want to avail real time assistance from an Outlook expert, contact the Outlook tech support.

  • Select the option titled Manage Rules and Alerts. 
  • Locate and click on the tab titled Email Rules and select New Rule from the resulting options. 
  • Click the link that states Apply rule on messages I receive. The link can be found under the header Start from a blank rule. 
  • Following this, select the Next button to proceed. 
  • Outlook will now display a list of conditions that each rule would feature. For instance, if you want to forward an email from a particular person with a specific subject to a different email service or application, you need to specify the appropriate rule for it. If you do not want to specify so, select the rule that says Forward All. 
  • Following this, press the Next button to proceed. 
  • Select the box that says Forward to people or public group. 
  • Locate the blue button placed below Step 2 that says People or Public group and select it.

  • Again, Press OK to let the rule take effect and exit the window. 
You have created a rule in your Microsoft Outlook application to forward all your inbox messages or messages from a specific sender to another email address. If your Outlook fails to forward the emails as per the rule you created, get in touch with the Outlook tech support immediately.

Google Offers Windows Support For The Cloud Print Service

Microsoft and Google are the biggest giants in the tech world. Apparently, there is a healthy rivalry between both of them. Google’s venture into the genre of operating systems with Android was an unexpected shock for Microsoft. But, both giants have come to terms recently to improve the features of Cloud Print service, a modern technology developed by Google to establish connection between Web and printers.

The scope of cloud print 

Experts were looking forward to seeing Cloud print service released with the Windows support. As the service is greatly beneficial to the Windows computers, Microsoft support would be an added benefit to the service. Through the Cloud print service, users can connect their printing devices to the web and print their files from anywhere in the world. All they need to have is a computing device with internet support. Google stated that the service is available on all types of computing devices such as desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. Google’s decision to provide support for Cloud Print service for Windows will be beneficial to Google as it facilitates the functionality of the app across Windows operating systems.

Update to Cloud Print service

Microsoft support for the Cloud Print service facilitates the addition of a couple of tools that would improve its usability. While one of the tools (Google Cloud Printer for Windows) is a printer driver, the other facilitates the network access to the service on Windows operating systems.
Using the Google Cloud Printer tool, users are able to access the connected printers from applications running on the Windows platform. The version of Cloud Print service with added features is said to be providing users with wider access to network services than before.

Runs in the background

One of the most appreciated advantage of the Cloud Print service on Windows operating system is that it runs in the background. The users can use this application in the same manner as they would use a native Windows service. In fact, the application simplifies the steps involved in connecting the new printers or maintaining them.
Cloud Print Service App for Windows Operating Systems 

Google has officially released the beta version of its Cloud Print service for Windows operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. Though the app is featured with Windows support, the users need to download and install Google Chrome as their default web browser to use this service. Along with the Windows version of Cloud Print app, Google has also released the Android version.
