#4: Better Management of Devices and Printers

Windows XP, as with previous Windows editions, doesn't make it simple to manage devices. Depending upon the device, you might need to use Device Manager, the Printers and Faxes folder, the Scanners and Cameras applet, the Mouse applet, and so on.

Windows 7 centralizes device management with its new Devices and Printers folder (see Figure 7). It provides fast access to device-specific management features for everything from displays, keyboards, and imaging devices to mice, removable-media and external drives, and printers—even your PC.
