    I really think you should stick with XP
    It does not matter what some people hear or see nothing is going to change their mind, so I agree, stay with XP!

    So have you tried my solution to quick launch yet?

    If you like your browser more customizable why not try Firefox, you can move things anywhere you like and you can change skins too, and at the time being while Microsoft are trying to find a solution to their security risks, it would be well advised to steer clear of IE.

    Middle button click on icon = more instances of the same app.

    ...Wow, just wow to this thread.

    I won't jump on the OP about which is better at this point, but I'll just suggest that you have some patience and give it some time to get used to. Yes, the changes from XP to 7 are a bit...drastic, but I think once you get adjusted to them you'll find you may never want to use XP (or IE6 - wow) again.

    Win7 really is a bit more intuitive, you just have to break all those bad habits from antiquated OS design.

    And you know, if you find after a few days/weeks of using Win7 that you really don't like it...well, then stick with XP. No reason to get all upset over it. Just switch back.

    i'll try to figure out how to do it and see if it's good. i tried firefox, it's like IE8 or viceversa. but all those top tabs either on FF or IE7 or 8.... just not as fast/convient/logical as the opened programs on the taskbar in XP which is right next to quick launch which is right next to start.
    and i noticed the win7 hidden icon thing is cumbersome to use... like if i want to exit MSN i need to click on that small triangle thing then go up right click on msn icon to exit, in xp just point there right click exit.
    less steps.

    if you follow my 2 slim bar way.... that is the most logical best way.

    bottom bar: start, quick launch(put whatever programs you like there), then to the right if openned programs(i never group them) usually can show upto 10 openned on a 12" laptop so about 20 openned programs right there on a desktop, then to the right is system tray stuff with that nice hidden when not use thingy. it's so logical... it's all right there, right next to eachother fast access less click.

    top bar: left/right arrow stop refresh home(all icons),"separtor" files to help things, "separator" google search bracket, then address bracket.
    follow the logic?? this is the best way.

    those 2 bars are the most logical/fastest/needs least space/gives most viewing space.

    just make it like that MS..... then everybody would be high happy.

    Happy? i don't think.

    Question: why have more than one "object" for application? Bad used space.

    Does my "middle click trick" work for you?

    Hello fdsa,

    Just to prove a point as to how minimalistic Firefox can be (taken from my current working set-up (with auto hide top and bottom)

    Top of Screen

    ok... more problems...-top-screen.png

    Bottom of screen

    ok... more problems...-bottom-screen.png

    As for the new system tray just set it to show the icon you need rather than hide it

    my ibm laptop middle button is for scrolling, what do you mean by "more than one "object" for application?" ?

    i prefer not to auto hide the bars. 2 thin top and bottom strips i like...
    and if i don't hide it in sys.tray it will have too much and take up too much room on taskbar, so xp's auto hide is nice.
