Windows Vista Programs and Features.
Programs and Features replaces the old Add and Remove programs we are used to with
Windows XP and earlier versions of Windows.
Programs and Features present us with a more organized tool that provides:
- Un-install or modify existing programs.
- View installed updates.
- Get new programs at Windows Market place.
- View purchased software.
- Turn Windows Features On or Off.
Turn Windows Features On or Off.
This feature is similiar to the old Add and remove programs Windows Components feature
we found with Windows XP and earlier Windows versions. The big difference is with
Windows XP and earlier versions we had to install and un-install components, with
Windows Vista the components are already installed you might just need to turn them
On or Off.
Example: Internet Information Services. Internet Information Services is
already installed with Windows Vista Ultimate. But by default the feature is not
turned on. To turn on the feature follow these steps.
Open Control Panel.
Double click Programs and Features.
On the left hand column, click "Turn Windows features on or off".
Click continue when the UAC needs confirmation.
The Windows Features dialog box appears and starts to build a list of features.
Select Internet Information Service.
The Features you selected will be configured and turned on.
Note: Turning a feature off does not un-install the feature therefore does not save
on disk space. Turning the feature off means the feature is not avaliable to you
or the operating system.
Vista Features can be rich in sub features. So when installing features, expand
the feature if possible and ensure all sub features are selected that you need.
Example: ASP.NET on Windows Vista
To enable the ASP.NET feature on Internet Information Services, expand the feature
Internet Information Services, expand World Wide Web Services, expand Application
Development Features and select ASP.NET.
