Windows 7 Ult x64(x2), HomePrem x32(x4), Server 08 (+VM), 08 R2 (VM) , SuSe 11.2 (VM), XP 32 (VM)
 
 

i do not know if its been talked about but i hate on the fact that they removed the flexibility of the file types tab in the folder options panel...
it drives me nuts sometimes....
i have tried alternatives but they are not the same (i.e you have to use 32 bit explorer which i will not use, it lowers in a way security and messes up icons)

edit: forgot that this also the same in vista...

I've been using the Technet release for two weeks and I don't have much to complain about. Overall, I think it's great. One thing that bugs me is the inability to remember passwords for websites. I'm not sure if it's strictly a Windows 7 thing, or a combination of Windows 7 and IE8. I've had IE8 for months on my Vista PC and it remembered PWs (I'm talking about login passwords like for this site.) Firefox still does it on W7. But I can't get it to work with IE8 and W7. Anyone else see this? Is it a "feature"?

Thing i hate about W7, is that it hardly works with large file types, such as VOB's.
I usually end up having to restart to correct the problem, and dont suggest re-installing...ive tried that and many other things....its a pain, coz i then use XP for my video editing.

One thing that bugs me is the inability to check things out before stating them as a fact.

IE8 > Tools > Internet Options > Content > Auto Complete Settings > User names and passwords on forms

Thanks for all of your replies (plus the snark!) but I have that setting checked. (I should have mentioned that, but I thought it was implied since I clearly said I have been using IE8 for months with Vista and did not have this problem prior to W7.)

My Bad, about the folder options issue, it's a feature I had gotten tired of looking for in the previous builds of windows 7 and I guess that's why I didn't bother looking in the 7600 build, I'll have to do that once I get back home....

The control panel's "Large Icons" thing: I guess I really should have been more specific and said "Larger" icons as in Extra Large Icons for instance, it was there in vista, the custom icon size for the control panel icons... Currently the option to display large icons is there in windows 7 like you've show on your screen shot and like I've already seen on my PC, but that's their definition of large, 'cause frankly, those icons aren't large at all, they're small if you ask me and if you choose the option for small icons, than they'll become 'tiny' by my standards.

Just right click on your desktop, choose large icons on the view menu and compare those 'large icons' with the ones in the control panel to see if they're the same in size... I think you'll really see that the ones on the desktop are larger, or should I just say "Large".

Well, aside from the folder option issue(which seems to have been fixed) then the thing I don't like about windows 7 is the removal of the ability for the users to customize the icon view on the control panel to match their preference... that's all

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but why when networking 2 W7 pc's do I have to write down the 1000 digit (ok I'm exagerating) code that is given to have to type that into the other PC, can't I save it to floppy or memory stick?? and have it automatically pick it up??
