well, is not exactly a button, but alt+up will do exactly what the up button used to do.

now my complain...
no .MKV native support! I mean, C'MON! it's the most used video container nowadays and microsoft ignored that. the same thing happened with .MP3 back in the Win98 era.

and I know that playback can be easily accomplished using third-party codecs, but thumbnails it's not so easy with x64.

good point - but at least wmp can play divx/xvid now!

not that i ever go near wmp! i use kmplayer - great app with good mkv support and no need for pesky external codecs, now i prefer it to vlc, coz vlc does not like aero with me!

Is this QuickLaunch? If not, please ID. I am going to try this approach for a while.

I use kmplayer cause it's the only app I've found that can play my DTS music files. Movies i usually use GOM or media center.

Yes it is. I just love to use Quick Launch. I have a system where I put programs and applications I use most often to Quick Launch and remove corresponding icons from desktop, so I get more place in desktop for "second class" icons, programs and applications I use often but not so often as these selected to Quick Launch.

I have two user accounts for me on my computer, one for private use and one for work. It helps me to organize my work and files. This picture is from my private account.

I like simple and informative desktop & taskbar. For me it is more important to get the job done and easily find what I need, than to have a customized nice-looking desktop. I remember reading somewhere in this forum you have a similar approach?

fair enough, spliff - but let's get this thread back on track!

what i don't like about windows 7 is that i'm going to have to pay for it soon!

i like your approach kari, and i'm gonna try it for a while to make efficient use of my wide-screen - now if only i could find a way to get the 'start button' at the bottom of the screen. i've become so conditioned to having it bottom-left - and it's hard for us old dogs to learn new tricks sometimes - grr...

I like chocolate, and when I put it in my eyes, I cannot see well. So, no eye-candy for me.

As a general principle (GP), the greatest amount of information available in a single glance.

What? Invert taskbar? Are you playing with me? Please provide a link - Win7 will be that much closer to "not sucking".
