Please ignore this if you are already familiar with how it use to work.

In XP PRO it worked as follows:
Right click on Computer Management -take the Action- ->Connect to another computer
->Right click on "Computer Management" (at the top of the tree)
->Properties - Now missing
There were 2 tabs (Computer Name and Advanced)
In Computer Name you could change the "Computer Description"
In Advanced you had the same option as the Advanced Tab with XP's
system properties advanced tab.

The Advanced tab showed the "System properties advanced tab" which includes the following:
Performance <settings>
Environmental variables <settings>
startup and recovery <settings>

Vista and Windows 7 the last step(Properties) is missing from Computer Management period!

I hope this helps.
How is this supposed to help. Who wants to go back to XP. All those functions are available. Go on an egg hunt and you shall find.

For all of you critical guru, I think you have wasted enough of my time.

I posted this complaint hoping that someone from Microsoft monitored it this site. Or maybe a professional who manages a lot of systems on a domain might have some helpful suggestions. It is a little disappointing the "senior members" and "seven guru" have so little to contribute.

I also prefer Windows 7 but/and it could be much better.

Good Luck all of you rookies.

Sorry, but a rookie would still be doing this stuff manually though the GUI like yourself. I think it is time you learn to automate all this stuff you have been doing for the last, 37 years was it? Windows 7 comes bundled with PowerShell, very versatile scripting environment. A lot of the management interface coming from Microsoft these days are built right on top of PowerShell.

As for your number three complaint, there are so many "dock" programs out there that offer a lot more features and look heelava lot better. Furthermore, the users can pin their most used applications right on the taskbar itself.

Garrett 344,
You have an opinion and you're fully entitled to it. I think you should change your opinion if and when it suites you.
The reality is XP is an operating system at the end of it's life. Overall I think (my opinion) Windows 7 is a better operating system than XP but it certainly has some deficiencies. You can work around those deficiencies.

I have to ask....if you know so much, and we are all clueless, with so little to contribute....why wouldn't you direct your complaints to the source, rather than some random forum board that has no affiliation with Microsoft? Microsoft has their own forums to post complaints about Windows 7. They monitor those complaints. However, I'll warn you in advance...if you didn't like the responses here, you won't like getting the same ones from an official source.

I'm disappointed as well...that people like you think rants and ravings will yield results. If you have legitimate complaints, create threads asking for options or workarounds. Simple venting isn't going to work.

Besides, Kari hit the nail right on the head. In this business, if you stop learning, you start failing.

After 46 years of working for a living, except for a 4 year vacation that Uncle Sam sent me on to a pretty well know Asian country, I decided I was becoming too quarrelsome and grumpy with my bosses and the public, so I called it a day. And a career.

Looked in the mirror lately?

I dunno, the guy brings a few legitimate complaints to the table and he's met with ... derision?

I hate the Search function in Win 7. Have I learned to use it and tweak the indexing? Sure. Was it much, much easier in XP? Sure.

A bit of help and guidance in regard to his complaints would go much further than retorts simply saying "learn the new way."

My very humble opinion ...
