I know people who have their keyboard hidden away, and consider it a chore to pull it out and use it. Links and favorites are how they get around. GUI and all that stuff.

(Don't ask how the favorites got there.) Command prompt? What's that?

Good answer logicearth, Calm and non 'flamitory to what seems to be a distressed user. Kudos. I don't think it was the answer they were hoping for.

(& I still like the up arrow.)

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

Maybe one of these days when you have to pay the electric bill out of your own pocket you'll understand why mom does what she does. If it were me, I'd shut off power to your room to get the "lesson" to sink in a little more.

By the way, nothing personal. Just doing a little razzing.

You have to add milk and coffee in Win7. From what I've read, there is plenty of steam...

How to Get the Good Old “Show Desktop” Feature Back in Windows 7? - Tweaking with Vishal

I will get used to the new location. The peek feature is pretty neat.

I liked the 'show all' windows from Vista.

Don't be sad, there is a third party attachement called "Espresso maker" sold at any Walmart .
Has to be kept on the left hand side of the screen, though....

Thanks for this valuable tip. Mine was working very strange, espresso was not strong enough. After moving the device to the left side of my display it's now perfect.

Nothing major

I don't like that I can't move the start button or the show desktop button. I wish I could choose to have all icons on the taskbar in the centre or to the right etc.

I think the change user screen is slow, whenever I change user the screen goes black for a few seconds and logging in takes much longer than in XP
