At least once per day I find myself using the calculator built into Windows 7 on my laptop. In fact, it’s pinned to my start menu. Looking for topics for tips, I started exploring around to see what else it could do. Lo and behold, there is a slew of pretty nifty features included in this age-old Windows tool.
Let’s hit the View menu to dive in:
Choose Scientific. If you’re a math whiz, you’ll see some familiar features from the fancy calculator you used in Calculus class:
This functions with the big 4, it just adds in other features. You can leave it as is if you want to impress people!
Let’s hit View again. You can see there are two other options, Statistics and Programmer. Not my field, but you can explore them on your own.
This time, let’s choose Unit Conversion. Let’s say you have to convert from Miles to Kilometers or Kilograms to Pounds. It doesn’t have everything, but it hits the high points.
Now the highlight for my real estate friends out there. Hit View then Worksheets then select Mortgage. You will know what to do with it better than I will. There may be better tools out there, but this could do in a pinch if you’re on someone else’s machine.
