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

Windows 7 64-bit
 
 

Another thing I've found I don't like about Win7:

With XP, I could simply right click on my network icon or Bluetooth icon and select Disable or re Enable it later.

I can't seem to find a way to do this under Win 7. Has this feature been removed (I doubt it) or just moved someplace else?

Looks like it, you have to click it, open network and sharing center, then click on the network interface you want to disable, then click disable :/

I don't like the Search in the start menu...I have to copy what I typed so if I click on the wrong item I don't have to retype I can just paste but often I forget to copy which is a pain

The Search menu is actually a great addition. Just start typing and it finds things automatically for you (if they have been indexed). If you don't want to use it then don't.

I want to use it and yes it finds thing right away but sometimes there a more than one find & if I click the wrong one I have to retype that is the pain
kIt would be even better if the typed word in the search box would stay till I'm finished & I would delete it

Windows 7 as preinstalled from HP is very slow on some computers. It becomes very fast if you reinstall windows 7 without all the factory bloat. XP is great platform, but technology will make it obsolete within a few years.

Ok this one just really pisses me off. Obviously you are not an IT person nor do you have to maintain many computer systems. We (Network Administrator, Security Administrators, Network Engineers, System Engineers, or any of the IT support staff are NOT on a POWER TRIP!!)

We have to lock everything down to keep uneducated (I am being polite) users from messing computer systems up. We have to lock everything down because many people have the idea in their head that their work computer can be used to experiment on and if it crashes or breaks “oh well we have an IT department to fix it, at least I did not try that on my home computer”. Users figure if a software works at home it will function at work so let’s load that P2P software and have some fun. Come on quit being so ignorant. We have to lock the computers down so the computers work and users can get the work that needs to be done without issues. Installing software as in P2P does not have ANYTHING to do with work, nor does it help in anyway. The other downside to this is that it takes up network bandwidth and makes other legitimate users suffer trying to get work done. If end users would just get it through their head that a work computer is: 1) for work only, 2) it is NOT their computer but owned by the company, 3) installing some software that you use at home will not necessarily function on your work computer nor will it improve your efficiency to get work done, 4) your computer at work and your computer at home have ABSOLUTLY nothing in common accept they may both be running Windows 7. The better off everyone would be.

We ran some statics to prove locking users out of settings and installing software etc. Does many things: 1) in the long run makes the end user much happier because their computer is always working and they never have to contact IT for repairs. 2) management is much happier because their employees are working 3) support calls to IT went down an amazing 89.4%!!!! 4) it gives the IT staff a small amount of their life back so they can see their spouse, kids, and maybe take a vacation because they are NOT at work fixing 10,000 stupid user problems. – Enough said!

Of course your network admin is on a power trip.. if he let everyone do whatever they wanted to their computers, he'd be working 95 hours a week trying to keep it all running. Nearly every change someone makes will slow it down a little, so from an admin's perspective, the less changes the better, with no change at all being ideal.

Windows 7 is actually very fast, even on older systems.

It does support all games. There's this thing called "Compatibility Mode" that you should try out. Well, there are some old Windows 95/98 games or MS-DOS games that just won't work on it. You should really move on from such old games though.
