Converting Units in Windows 7

One nice upgrade to Windows 7 is the unit converter on the built-in calculator program. This can be a very handy tool if you are someone who needs to do this often. Just follow the simple steps below to convert units of power, mass, time, and volume.

1. Click the Start button, select "All Programs", "Accessories", then "Calculator" to open up the Windows 7 Calculator.

2. Next, select the "View" menu then click on "Unit Conversion".

3. A unit conversion windows will appear to the right of the calculator. Next, you can click the pull-down and select the unit type that you want to convert.

4. In the "From" box, type in the value of the starting unit.

5. At the very bottom of the Unit conversion panel, you will see a "TO" box. From the drop-down, select the unit you want to convert to.

At this point you will see the converted value right below the TO header. One nice thing is that you can copy this value using edit->copy to bring the value to another document, excel sheet, etc.
