A commenter on an earlier post (Ultimate Extras, MIA) asks, “Where are the extras?”
Only Microsoft knows what, if anything, is coming in this category. But you can find out which Ultimate Extras are currently installed on your system (delivered via Microsoft Update and, of course, only there if you’re running Vista Ultimate) by doing this:
1. Open Control Panel.
2. Click Programs.
3. Under the Programs and Features heading, click Turn Windows features on or off.
4. Scroll to the bottom of the Windows Features dialog box. Expand the Windows Ultimate Extras category to see the full listing, and note that you can enable or disable any item on the list by selecting or clearing its checkbox.
There’s some other interesting stuff in that dialog box, too, but don’t click unless you’re certain you know what you’re doing. For instance, that Indexing Service? That’s the old, basically useless one from pre-Vista days. It has nothing to do with Windows Desktop Search and you definitely don’t want it running. Trust me on this.
