I hate that clicking the IE Icon in the bottom left doesn't open up a new internet explorer window anymore when you already have 1 IE window open. This is the most annoying change ever. All previous versions of windows you click IE Icon in bottom left and it opens a new IE window. Now, you click it once it opens it only if you dont have another IE window open. If you already have a window open it just minimizes it or shows multiple tabs window. If 2 or more windows open just shows the multiple window thing. Here's an idea how about continuity? I understand that clicking those icons should minimize it now but when I have 2 or more open it brings up the stupid multiple windows viewer above the icon which already F****** happens if you let the mouse highlight over the icon for 1 second. How about this you click it, it minimizes it no matter what. Maybe a double click opens a new window for continuity. Double click doesn't even do anything useful, what a waste. I really miss easy clicking for a new IE window from the F******* taskbar. Shift click is stupid when a double click is easier. Instead of clicking on the icon to open a new window I gotta go click the windows icon and the IE Icon there. WTF is the point of the IE Icon in the taskbar now, ITS ONLY GOOD FOR OPENING IT ONCE, UNLESS I RIGHT CLICK, OMG SO ANNOYING, compared to all other versions of Windows 95 to Vista. Single clicking bringing up the multiple windows viewer is just annoying when highlighting it for 1 second already brings it up; JUST MINIMIZE. I WANT EASY PRIMARY MOUSE BUTTON CLICKING TO OPEN A NEW IE WINDOW FROM THE IE ICON IN THE TASKBAR. WTF BRING IT BACK.

You know you can just use the middle click on your mouse if you have one to open a new IE window when you already have one open from the taskbar IE icon. You could also right click on the taskbar icon and click on the Internet Explorer entry to open up a new window, or choose to open a new tab.

Right click is annoying when a single double click could do the job and no middle click on laptop fingerpad.

It depends on the hardware, to see how your memory is being used: Start > type "resource" open Resource Monitor > Memory Tab > Physical Memory. Chances are you might have an option in the BIOS for a feature called Memory Remapping.

I do not like how the Show Desktop button is locked behind the clock on the right...can this be moved?

I love how all my programs are docked on the taskbar...very handy.
