Microsoft Hardware will launch sevveral new features for Windows 7 in the coming months for its peripherals; the first of which is a timesaving feature called Taskbar Favorites that gives Microsoft keyboard users a smart new way to access their most frequently used programs and documents. Taskbar Favorites will map to the location of applications on the improved Windows taskbar. The applications in the taskbar can be easily rearranged just by clicking and dragging, and Taskbar Favorites will automatically adapt to the applications’ new locations.

“These new benefits continue a longstanding tradition of Microsoft integration,” said Brett Ostrum, general manager of Microsoft Hardware. “Microsoft Hardware devices have been enhancing life on the PC for more than 25 years — from a mouse designed for the first version of Microsoft Word and LifeCam exclusive features for Windows Live to keyboard design inspiration taken from Windows Vista. Our collaborative effort among all Microsoft teams ensures that the Microsoft Hardware lineup is an excellent choice for Windows 7 users.”

When choosing peripherals for their Windows 7-based PCs, consumers can feel confident that all current Microsoft Hardware products are compatible with the new operating system. Hardware products tested under Microsoft specifications for compatibility with the new operating system will display a Windows 7 logo on the product.
