That moves the window, but doesn't flip the display. Not sure why it doesn't work for you psychfunk, works for me...
It kind of does:
  • When active windows is on the right display, two times Win + Left Arrow snaps it to the right on the left display
  • When active windows is on the left display, two times Win + Right Arrow snaps it to the left on the right display
Very practical sometimes, because on multi display systems it is the only way to snap a window to the side if there exists an additional display on that side.

I think he's looking for something to rotate the display though, not change the position of windows.

True. My mistake.

To my understanding the actual rotation of the screen is a function of the graphics driver and because of this the key combinations may change with a new OS as Drivers change.

If you shut it down, than it takes ages for it to load up again. Like tries to hypnotize you for 20 minutes. And trying to change the file extension to all file extension like you can do in xp seems a lot more difficult in Win 7 because you can't find it. Even when you go to windows/file explorer there no option to change it. I used to do it with no problems in xp.

I'm not sure that I understand your complaint.

You can change the file extension association by going to Default Programs:
Start Menu > Default Programs
or
Control Panel > Default Programs
Unfortunately I don't think that you can't easily add your own commands to the Context Menu (like in XP).

Windows 7 takes the same amount of time to reboot as it does to load from "Power Off" (on my PC - 55 seconds). When I was experiencing weird delays (on the Beta releases) I discovered that my Anti-Virus program was responsible.

You could try disconnecting your network, USB drives, etc and then disabling your AV program and rebooting. You could also use Task Manager (or programs like Process Explorer) to monitor which processes are using up your CPU power (obviously not during reboots).

What don't you like about Windows 7?-lol.png

1. its lame when previews dont work.
2. windows updating in the background can steal focus from fullscreen apps and minimize them.
3. some older devices become doorstops, like my benq5000 scanner.

Windows 7 Ulti x64
 
 

i hate paying for it every couple years. 2 7ultimates at over 300 clams a pop sucks. The family pack of Home premos was much more reasonable. The Vistas Ultis were expensive too. A family pack of Win8 Ultis would be handy, just sayin.
Devilsown XP's were really nice. Maybe that's why everyone loved XP.

Don't buy Ultimate then? And its three years when a new version is suppose to come out and you do not have to buy the newest version when it comes out.

Windows 7 is just a toy for me. Linux is where it is at. (and yes it will play games too) I don't like it. I like to be able to reconfigure my kernel so that I don't have things in it like support for a 14k modem and text to speech.

The speech to text really reallly rreeeeaaaalllllyyyyy stinks! lol! Linux has better stuff, but then they have like 12,000 programmers working on it so it is bound to be better.

And if you don't like the latest Linux release wait a month or two and something new will be released in another distrobution.
