Have you tried the rearranging options on top of the menu bar - organize by Type, Details, Tiles?

If you want "Quick Launch" back, see here:
Windows 7: Restore Quick Launch Toolbar | Desktop Wallpaper | Windows Tools, Help & Guides

I also miss the "Up" arrow in Explorer, but have adopted using mouse gestures instead since most of the time an "Up" is the same as a "Back":
StrokeIt - Mouse Gestures for Windows

Alternatively you can assign a gesture to "Alt + Up Arrow" which takes you up one level in file hierarchy.

Or, you can use the new breadcrumb bar. Take, for example, the following folder paths:

D:\Documents\Work\Dynax\Advertisements\December
D:\Documents\Work\Dzomlija

In XP (when the folder tree is not visible on the left), if I wanted to go to the "Work" folder, I'd have to click the "Up" arrow 3 times! In Windows Vista and Windows 7, I can do the same with just a single click by clicking on "Work"

Or, if I wanted to go directly from the "December" folder to "Dzomlija", I can click the triangle arrow between "Work" and "Dynax" to show a list of folders, from which I can just click "Dzomlija" to get there. In XP, this will take 3 clicks of "Up" and a double-click to achieve the same result.

The "Up" arrow command is old and antiquated, and I for one am happy that it has been removed from Explorer...

4)No Quick Launch, the show desktop button is on the bottom right.
After using XP for such a long time, I guess it's the little things that make a difference
That's pretty much it...I thought there would be A LOT more when I was installing Win7.
#4 "No Quick Launch"

Heh that one go tme too till I realized that the ENTIRE task bar IS a quick launch bar Just pin your use every day icons to it and they sit there and when launched they do not take up any more space.
You can't drop shortcuts to folders on the new taskbar, you CAN put them in QL. They sort of 'belong' to Explorer in 7, which isn't what I want. Having the new way and the old XP way combined is best, luckily it's easy enough to fix up so it does this. I have QL as a very short entry on the taskbar, most of it runs vertically from the double arrows, so it doesn't take up hardly any room on the taskbar.

I completely DESPISE this:

What don't you like about Windows 7?-capture.jpg

When using CLI encoders in XP, I'd always make it fullscreen and go to sleep/go out, so when my mom wanted to turn off the PC to "teach me a lesson about saving power" she'd just see tons of numbers, rows and rows of weird text and simply give up thinking that she'd screw up something XD
