I've been using Windows 7 exclusively for a few months now both at home and work, and while I love most of the new stuff, there's a couple of things that are still really bugging me about it, and I wondered if any of you know how to stop it?
Firstly I've re-added the quicklaunch and am not using the new style shortcuts as I use multiple instances of most of my programs at any one time, which the super bar doesn't seem suited to. Plus having shortcuts and running apps mixed in together drives me crazy.
Having quicklaunch back and setting it to always expand running apps solves this, but I lose the ability to use win + num on the keyboard to open the first 10 items. This was a feature I used a LOT in Vista and not having it really annoys me.
My question is, can I either move that keyboard shortcut back to the quicklaunch OR seperate running apps and shortcuts from each other on the superbar, so the shortcut stays where it is. This would essentially turn it back into quicklaunch.
My second issue is the right click menu for programs on the superbar. The new context menu has yet to prove useful to me, I don't keep recent documents lists and most apps don't support it anyway. The menu appears above the item rather than where you click on it so the close button is much higher, which means I always miss it, and continue to even after months of using it. As this is how I usually close apps, it's getting very frustrating. On top of both of these issues, the "close" item doesn't seem to do any checks on whether or not a program is responding, the old close item on Vista / XP was much more useful on a non-responding app.
Is there any way I can disable it and re-enable the old-style menu? I know shift+click brings up the old menu, but a way of making this the default would be fantastic.
