Windows Vista Secrets for Tablet PC

TabletPC Blog: Tim Sneath has been posting a wonderful series of "Windows Vista Secrets". (The ability to start Quick Launch items with the [Win+] keys has changed my life -- thanks Tim)

I have my own set of tips for Windows Vista -- some secret, some not -- that apply mainly to laptop and Tablet PCs, so I thought I'd share.

#1: Windows Mobility Center
Windows Mobility Center is a great one-stop portal for managing a LOT of settings on your laptop or tablet -- power scheme, audio volume, screen brightness, projection, rotation, as well as one-click access to myriad other Control Panel applets for stylus input and handwriting recognition.

It's definitely not meant to be a "secret", but for some reason we really did bury it in the Start / Programs / Accessories menu... Place a shortcut to MblCtr.exe on your Quick Launch bar, or pin it to your Start Menu, for easier access.

The Mobility Center will also get extra icons from OEM's one of the Microsoft guys at a Microsoft event I went to was talking about it So I guess you might also get things like Sony apps to change power setting on your laptop ect

i'm honestly not normally a grammar nazi, but i'm really confused with what you're trying to say without periods and commas...
