Q I’ve always been a critic of Windows Calculator. Is the calculator in Windows 7 any better?
A Yes, it’s much more functional than the earlier version. For example, no longer will you need to turn to Excel to calculate the number of days, weeks, months or years between two dates or to calculate mortgage payments.
The Windows 7 Calculator has been beefed up with Programmer, Statistics and Scientific modes. They include templates that calculate gas mileage, hourly wages, mortgage payments, leases and much more. It’s well worth taking a look at it.
