Windows Mobility Center Designed For Laptops

Sometimes inspiration strikes when you least expect it—in a coffee shop, a park, or a train station. If you rely on your laptop to take advantage of such moments, Windows Mobility Center can make your life easier. Mobility Center is found in laptops running Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions.

Using Mobility Center, you can quickly view and change settings such as speaker volume, wireless network connection status, display brightness, and power. Maybe you’re trying to get those last sentences finished without being tempted to browse the Internet. You can quickly turn your network connection off, and continue working. You can also easily check your battery status and adjust power settings to avoid other delays.

Giving a presentation to an audience can be intimidating, especially if your screen saver comes on just when you’re hitting your stride. With the presentations settings—only available in Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions—you can prevent such interruptions by disabling your laptop’s screen saver and e‑mail notifications.

The options available in Mobility Center might vary depending on your laptop’s hardware.
