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.
Were only defensive when someone posts an issue with 7 that has a well documented fix or workaround (a simple search could have resolved everything) or they post rubbish that is just not true...

Come on, Z. Admit it. Windows 7 sux. Especially Aero.



Anyway, I hear a good tone in stew2's odd post.

That is what this site does.

Well i posted my 3 issues which were:
  • Windows Media Player
  • The Control Panel
  • And Games Explorer
So far nobodys answered with a solution so its an unfixable thing about windows 7 which is what i dont like about windows 7. I want to install windows media player 11 and vista games explorer and i know nothing can be done about the control panel so i posted it in this thread as those are the things i dont like about windows 7 .

I like the idea of this thread, you just have to look at the post by whs where he just didnt like something but was unwilling to start a thread over something so small but Antman gave him a solution.

Lack of an in-built debugger. It forces the download of the "debugging tools" package for even the smallest of code-level issues.

XP had a debugger (NTSD) but it was removed in the Vista timeframe because they didn't want to have to service it and it was never used on >99% of clients. It's an understandable decision for an OS program manager, but it forces an additional step for those with many different machines to support.

No thread is too small. Many threads are too big. It is not likely that anyone who is looking for it will ever find the Send To Quick Launch solution here.

Stew2 - I looked through this thread to see if I could shed some light on the three issues, but I just don't like culling through the clutter. I haven't examined your Games Explorer thread yet.

Stew2, I am not certain I understand your comment. I thought this was a thread where you were supposed to post things you are missing (or dislike) in W7. I was not looking for a solution although I am thankful to Antman to point out an easy work around for the Quick Launch. My own work-around are toolbars in the taskbar where I park my shortcuts. I wish though that the owners of the AppLauncher make a W7 update because that is really handy.
