The $199 Nexus 7 tablet from Google is one of the most approachable full-fledged Android tablets I've played with. Instead of the "Tron"-inspired graphic motifs and deliberately opaque navigation elements that defined Honeycomb (Android 3.0), the Nexus 7 feels like it was made for a human being.

But while Google's new emphasis on its media services (video, music, books) makes this tablet feel a little like more a Kindle Fire than a high-end Android tablet, there are number of customizations you can make to the Nexus 7 to make it uniquely your own.

In the above CNET How To video, I'll show you how to quickly customize your Nexus 7 experience. You'll learn how to add and delete home screen widgets, create folders for your apps, increase the system font size, and even how to open the lock screen by blinking your eyes.
