Windows 7: Requests to Microsoft.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Please put RDP back into Home Premium.
Justification:We are seeing a fundamental shift in the way computing is accomplished in the home environment and Microsoft has taken the first steps to support this environment with
1) Windows Home Server and 2) the "Family Pack" consisting of 3 copies of Home Premium. This is also the version that most OEM's are pre-installing on most pc's they sell. Centralized administration of the home network is becoming a must have and the biggest roadblock to this is the lack of RDP to aviod having to physically logon to each machine to work on it. Furthermore when people pay to run Windows Home Server one of the benefits is remote access to your pc's and this should NOT be limited to only business customers. There are more than enough other differences to separate the Home and Professional versions.

  • it would be nice to be able to invert (or flip) a taskbar placed on the left edge of screen, so that the start button appears at the bottom.

  • pin the favourites section to top of left pane ( la vista), so it doesn't get lost if you scroll too far.

  • make it easier to add locations to send-to context-menu. (maybe at bottom of send-to menu have 'add to menu...' item?)

  • gui tool for customising drive/partition/file type icons - why not build it into the os, maybe in properties tab?

  • it's probably never gonna happen, but dual-pane view, please? viewing contents of two folders would be so nice - even tabbed single pane would be an improvement

Windows 7 SP1 x64

Fix the issue when you search in the classic all control panel items (the windows jumps to search disabling you from writing more than one letter from the search box -you need to click in the box again to type more letters -very annoying!)

  • A new line of Themes for 7 which can be bought and/or downloaded via a Store (I mean like those custom themes from DA, and the ones i make)

Aero Shake is a little difficult to get the right amount of shake, might take several tries.

I'm thinking A button (maybe optional) on the windows bar would have been a lot more user friendly than Shaking it.

Open a new folder when others are hidden, and you can’t get the hidden ones back ... Or am I missing something ??

Widows snap doesn't seem to work with multiple displays and also looses the hidden folders.
Not sure if these are listable items.

Friendship requests
I've received a few or these and rejected them. I'd just like to say to the people that set them to me, its nothing personal.
