This post explains Visio 2010 features that take advantage of new Windows 7, to make working with Visio documents even easier.

  • Multiple Documents in Visio 2010 and the new Windows 7 Taskbar: Windows 7 taskbar presents a unified interface for launching and switching between apps and documents within them. With Windows 7 and Visio 2010, its now easier to work with multiple Visio documents at the same time. By clicking a thumbnail, you can switch directly to a specific Visio document.
  • Dual Display Support: While Visio still displays multiple documents in the same app window, there’s a workaround to enable dual display support: launch two instances of Visio. You can do this in Windows 7 by launching Visio, and then right clicking Visio icon and clicking on “Microsoft Visio 2010” item, will launch a second instance of Visio.
  • Multi Touch in Visio 2010: If you’ve a touch-enabled device, Windows 7 allows you to interact with your PC with your fingers. This feature, called Windows Touch, brings a set of gestures to the operating system that can be used in the OS and several applications.
