Windows 7: Let's get negative [2] - Windows 7 Minor annoyances

I have seen an issue with themes. I set up my own theme with backgrounds colors and screensaver and then name it. It is named "ExampleA". I am using ExampleA, and want to change something and save it. If I change the wallpapers (or color or any other component), it creates a new "Unnamed Theme". I then have to save this as ExampleA, but it doesn't overwrite it. Instead I have two ExampleA themes listed. I then have to delete the first "ExampleA" theme that I initially just wanted to edit....

Does this make sense or am I doing it wrong?

Thorsen,

No it doesn't make sense but it's the way it happens for me to

BTW your description made perfect sense it's Microsoft's implementation that doesn't

What annoys me is how easy it is for the taskbar to disappear and only leave the start menu orb behind. This has happened to two different pcs running different flavors of Windows 7. This has never happened in either xp or vista.

Kudos to Brink who told me how to fix this

I just want to know what causes this out of curiosity? I know that one laptop that does it was loaded from a 7 disc that I had used vlite to tweak and add drivers. Vlite must do something that causes this...

Try these steps:
1- Right click on Start Menu and select Properties
2- Click on Customize
3- Scroll all the way down and uncheck the "Sort All Programs menu by name" item
4- Click OK on the Customize Start Menu window, then OK on the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window

Not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for, but after this you should be able to re-arrange the items inside All Programs by drag/drop.

Thanks for the tip, didn't know that. Well, that's pretty close to that what I'm looking for. The same thing with re-arrange but not in the All Programs menu, I'm looking that for folder like for example "Pictures", where I got 128 folders and in each folder 100 photos. I want to arrange those folders by the dates (dates are wrong and missing), that's why I want manual arrange for one folder. It would be so great.

It's annoying that I have to create a BAT file to play all my AOE games otherwise the game colours are all to pot.

The BAT file kills of Explorer.exe prior to launching the game which then doesn't mess with the colours.



It's also annoying that I cannot get at some files to delete them, even under full Admin mode.

I remember saying this in the first thread that was initiated many months ago, for some there is just no pleasing them.

It's okay, thanks for your tip anyway. It means that the thing what I want is not possible?

That I'm not sure about; you might want to start a new thread in the General Discussion - Windows 7 Forums section of the forums. I might be wrong, but I suspect certain users avoid this particular thread, so they may not see your question in here...
