Glad you liked it, it took a while to collect, and I probably do need to update it one of these days...

We are just answering the question posed in the title, it would be a bit silly to pass an opinion on all the things we thought we did like in Win 7 in a thread titled :- " What don't you like about Windows 7? "

I'm sure there is at least one "Windows 7 is great" thread or similar you could contribute your opinion towards.

Don't forget:

"For your safety and convenience..."

These signs at are at the local healthy-veggie store, for their 'shopping carts'.

I always feel 'in peril' and 'inconvenienced', when I leave them next to the front fender, driver's side, of my car...

Like gas, the feeling passes.

Although I don't find opening frequently used documents with two clicks from the taskbar using the jump lists to be any problem at all and actually like that feature, for those who must have access with one click, why not simply put the document or a shortcut to the document on the desktop?

One method to gain access to documents from the taskbar is to create a folder somewhere convenient on your system, and add a toolbar pointing to that folder to the taskbar.

This can contain either the documents or shortcuts to them.

This will produce a dynamic list of current items which can be opened with a single click.

You can adjust the width of the toolbar to show as many or as few items as you want and if set to sort by date can even be set-up to display the most current items first.

You can adjust the toolbar to produce various forms of display, (small or large icons etc.).

One option would be to create a toolbar pointing to the systems recent documents folder and this would be automatically maintained by windows.
It should be available here ...

In general I like W7. But I am missing a few functions:

1. The Quick Launch is missing and the tweak is mikey mouse - it does not provide the "Add to ..." function in the right click context menu
2. I always have an extra toolbar that I create by pushing a folder with shortcuts into the top of the sceen. That does not work in W7. What makes it worse is the the AppLauncher in the sidebar does not work yet either. But that is not an MS problem.
3. In Vista I run movies as screensaver. In W7 I have not found a way to do that.

What I like about W7 is the small footprint and the good performance. I can care less about all the eye candy they have added.

Create a shortcut to your Quick Launch folder. Place that shortcut in your SendTo folder.

One less reason to dislike Windows 7.

Thanks, good idea. Did not think of that. Btw: I do not "dislike" W7. I think it will become a good system.

lol everybodys so defensive over windows 7.

Windows 7 has some issues as its new and so driver support etc is rubbish right now. I think this thread should be stickied so we can say what annoys us about windows 7 and hopefully get solutions if they exist.
