Switching gears from work to home is easier than ever with the Windows® 7 Home Premium to Professional upgrade. Run many Windows XP productivity programs in Windows XP Mode, and easily shift between business and home networks. Quickly locate anything on your system—from documents and songs, to emails and more—with Windows Search, and enjoy new heights in peace of mind with file encryption and automatic backups that safeguard all your important information. And with intuitive desktop navigation features like Snap, Peek and Shake, you can do it all with speed and efficiency.
Requires either OEM pre-installation or post-purchase download of Windows XP Mode (which runs on Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate) and a virtualization technology such as Windows Virtual PC. Customers can download Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC free-of-charge from http://www.windows.com/business/downloads/ when available.
If you are upgrading from Windows XP, you will need to back up your files and settings, perform a clean install and then re-install your existing files, settings and programs. Visit windows.microsoft.com/upgrade for more information.
