Win 7 Wish List * *TIPS AND TRICKS * * *

As I posted earlier, would like to see drag and drop from desktop to anywhere having each root auto open as you click and drag folder, file, et-cetera to specific place.

That said Win 7 allows you to drag a folder/file to START button (which opens) and then you can drag/move to my documents.

Wish list so far - should be easy to implement

MAGNIFIER -key stroke to start/stop
TRIM tool - key stroke to marque selection

I want to be able to change the icon of a self-made library. I actually sent some feedback on that.

No seriously, I don't really care, but I do think that it should be possible.

Can't really think of somethingelse now.

Well type them out here - let's do this. I have sent several comments so far and will see how far I can get as a past developer and my soon to be review and use with AUDIO/VIDEO applications.

Those who type stuff out here that don't send, I will send it as a group if know one else does.

Another WISH list:

1) Browser= Double clicking anywhere on the top browser pane minimizes window to taskbar program

2) Alt+shift+ double clicking on top of browser pain minimizes all windows of said group to taskbar applet (program)

3) Alt+Shift+Middle mouse PUSH =Show Desktop Button (lower right, bottom of screen in WIN 7)

4) Ability to turn keyboard into MAC keyboard and windows keyboard into MAC (vice-versa) with working controls F13-F16)

The reason I bring up some of the mac/apple items is due to MESH (live, by Microsoft) are developing network, synch, and much more for Apple hardware/OS.

Command + Shift + arrow or Alt+Shift + arrows= moving whatever window is on dual monitor to second monitor and back again.

See tip above - just add SHIFT key to command - trying to see what other short cuts they have created - very cool stuff - very cool indeed.

Windows 7 has made a lot of ease of use and cosmetic changes.

Very cool.
