Windows 7: What don't you like about Windows 7?

I just really don't like the new user interface. I'm fine with the explorer in Windows XP, but this I think just makes it very unhandy you don't have the 'file/edit/view' anymore. When you are looking for just one option more from the 'new' so-called quick stuff, you need to look all around it is just very unhandy. I would prefer a total windows xp skin.

it's not a perfect list yet, but you may learn a bit more about services to disable, or better yet, switch to manual so they only start if an app requests it.

the only thing i dont like about windows 7 (and vista) is the lack of the up,cut,copy,paste toolbar in the explorer...i used them a lot in XP and it felt pretty much faster than right clicking and doing the same.The keyboard shortcuts are fast but i rely mostly on mouse than a keyboard.also the 'up' tab is much faster than breadcrumbs.

Don't like Windows Explorer since XP either. There are some improvements like showing the amounts of items and a few others, but all that autosort stuff and changing views automatically made me going back from Vista to XP. And in Windows 7 it doesn't seem to be different from Vista.

One thing that made a big difference for me in making explorer better in 7 was to download the free "Ultimate Windows Tweaker" app (very cool app btw, now optimized for 7) Ultimate Windows Tweaker v2, a Tweak UI for Windows 7 & Vista | The Windows Club

and (among many other tweaks), it has some check boxes under "additional tweaks" that allow you to easily add (or subsequently remove) "Move to folder," "Copy to folder" and "Take Ownership" to the explorer right click context menu. I find these to be very convenient to have and use them all the time.
