New Features in Windows XP Mode RC

by manroger4 » Sat Feb 09, 2013 2:05 pm

Based on feedback from the Windows XP Mode beta, we’ve made several improvements to the usability of Windows XP Mode for small and medium-sized business users:
1. You can now attach USB devices to Windows XP Mode applications directly from the Windows 7 task-bar. This means your USB devices, such as printers and flash drives, are available to applications running in Windows XP Mode, without the need to go into full screen mode.
2. You can now access Windows XP Mode applications with a “jump-list”. Right click on the Windows XP Mode applications from the Windows 7 task bar to select and open most recently used files.
3. You now have the flexibility of customizing where Windows XP Mode differencing disk files are stored.
4. You can now disable drive sharing between Windows XP Mode and Windows 7 if you do not need that feature.
5. The initial setup now includes a new user tutorial about how to use Windows XP Mode
