Windows Phone 7 : Deleting Music or Video

Windows Phone 7 : Pinning Favorites to Start
If you really, really love a song and can’t bear to have it out of your sight, here’s a simple solution: Pin it to the Start screen. What can you pin? Just about anything in Music + Videos—even a radio station. Whenever you pin something, a tile for that item shows up on the Start screen.
Windows Phone 7 : Listening to FM Radio
Did you know that your Windows Phone includes a built-in FM radio? That’s right, you can tune in to your favorite station whenever the mood strikes you. Catch the news, listen to the game, or just get your groove on. To tune in your favorite stations more quickly, save them as presets. Or just pin a favorite station to the Start screen.
Windows Phone 7 : Playing Podcasts
Podcasts are audio or video programs that you can download to your PC and then play on your phone. The beauty of podcasts is that they can be created by just about anybody—and cover just about any subject under the sun.

Every Windows Phone 7 comes with a high-resolution color screen that’s perfect for catching up on missed episodes of your favorite TV shows, watching movies on a long flight, or replaying your favorite personal videos

You can pin places or businesses you love to your Start screen so that you can call or map them with a tap.
Windows Phone 7 : Adding a Pushpin
Windows Phone displays search results in Maps with pushpins But you can also stick your own pushpin on the map. Why do that? If you want to get directions to some place but don’t know the exact address, find it on the map and then stick a pushpin there.
Windows Phone 7 : Changing Map Views
There’s more than one way to look at a map in Windows Phone 7. You can see the map in traditional road view or from space by using aerial view. If you’ve just searched for a coffee shop or another popular business and have too many pushpins cluttering the screen, you can also switch to list view to make the map easier to read.
Windows Phone 7 : Sharing an Address with Someone
Need to show someone where to meet you? Send the address directly to their phone or computer so that they can see it on a map or get directions. You can share an address via text message or e-mail.
Windows Phone 7 : Getting Real-Time Traffic Conditions
Windows Phone 7 can show you how clogged the roadways are, whether you need to tell someone you’ll be running late, or maybe rethink your route home. Coverage is limited mostly to major roads, and the service isn’t available in every city.
Windows Phone 7 : Getting Directions
Getting from A to B is a breeze. Windows Phone provides detailed, turn-by-turn directions to get you to your destination. It’s important to note, however, that Windows Phone 7 only gives written directions.

Tapping a black pushpin on the map calls up the About card for that location. Depending on the place, you might see a street address, phone number, web address, or business hours.

This is the meat and potatoes of Maps: finding stuff. Of course, you can search for a specific address, but what you might not realize is that the Maps app can also handle a whole slew of other requests, including landmark and business names.
Windows Phone 7 : Finding Yourself
Depending on what type of signal you have—GPS, Wi-Fi, or cellular—Windows Phone can typically narrow your location to at least the nearest neighborhood (unless you’re really in the middle of nowhere).
Windows Phone 7 : Working with Maps
The map on your phone has multiple zoom levels. With a few moves of your fingers, you can change from a view that shows entire continents to one that lets you make out your neighbor’s house and cars parked out front.

Windows Phone 7 : Finding Text on a Web Page
It’s often tricky to find a word on a website. This is doubly true when you’re using a phone. But Internet Explorer Mobile can do the searching for you. Just type the word you want to find, and the browser will highlight any instances of it on a page.
Windows Phone 7 : Working with Browsing History
Internet Explorer keeps a list of every website you visit, which is handy if you ever want to revisit a site you’ve been to and can’t remember its address. Deleting your browsing history is also easy if you’re concerned about privacy or you just want to free up space on your phone.
Windows Phone 7 : Browsing the Web - Sharing Links
Sometimes you run across a website that you just have to let someone know about. In Windows Phone, you can accomplish that goal with a few quick taps by sending someone a link via e-mail or a text message.

If there’s a website that you visit often, consider adding a shortcut to it to your Start screen—or, in Windows Phone parlance, pinning it there.
