Windows Mobility Center is a component of Microsoft Windows, introduced in Windows Vista, that centralizes the most relevant information to mobile computing.

Overview

The Windows Mobility Center user interface presents a series of square tiles that each contain one piece of information about a component of the system, as well as action items related to that component. The tiles that appear depend on the system. Windows Vista includes the following tiles:

  • Brightness adjustment
  • Sound adjustment / mute
  • Battery level / power scheme selection
  • Wireless network status
  • Screen orientation (portrait or landscape)
  • External displays
  • Synchronization to other machines
  • Presentation settings

Additional panes can be added by individual mobile computer manufacturers wanting to reveal functionality unique to their products.

Windows Mobility Center is located in the Control Panel, and can also be launched by pressing the Windows key + X. It is inaccessible on non-mobile computers, however it is possible to enable Mobility Center on desktop systems using a registry hack.[1]

Windows Mobility Center is included with the Home Basic (although a Windows Vista help topic misinformed that Mobility Center is not available there), Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions of Windows Vista.

Customization

Windows Mobility Center can be customized by adding extensions, called "tile"s. This customization is OEM-specific, according to Microsoft whitepaper; but there are several extensions available on the net from non-OEM origin.
