The normally bare-bones calculator in Windows has been given an overhaul. It's not just for arithmetic anymore. The Windows 7 calculator can be operated in four modes: Standard, Scientific, Programmer and Statistics. It can convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, ounces to grams, and joules to BTUs. It has templates for calculating mileage and auto lease and mortgage payments as well as a unit conversion utility for measurements such as area, length, time, velocity and weight.
