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

Sorry people, it was just an example, but I meant a full screen thing,
instead of the ancient XP dialogs.

The networkcenter fits perfectly well on my 15,4" lappy screen.

Glad to see me going negative has so much effect.

I can't stand that it's in my way between Vista and Win 8

Why the hell won't these windows hold their size

This is a pisser Ever since around 4800, IE8 windows won't allow you to train them to open a certain size - using any of the common methods used previously It is so damn annoying to have this fantastic OS, perhaps the greatest invention since the computer itself, and have such an annoying glitch So I install the autosizer app and that is even screwier, allowing me to almost get my windows the right size, but not quite I am about to go Jack Nicholson over this

Have to be careful now, so I'm just checking: Do you mean IE8 does not remember the window size?

If that is your issue, I have to say it is not correct. It does. The subject was discussed here. Please read the thread.

Basically any element of 7 which reminds me of Vista, at all, could be removed/replaced with something new and/or innovative.

Examples: all programs in start menu (if you have lots of programs there's a scrollbar...ewe), control panel default view, the default UAC with all its annoyances during administrative changes (fortunately this can be adjusted). Copying large files over a network seems to be much slower than in XP.

New features which I don't like (or are redundant): Homegroup and Libraries, most of the new services.

I have lots of positive things to say about 7 but its off topic!

Develop your own folder structure in the Start Menu to reduce the clutter. Change the Control Panel default view with a mouse click.

Ya, I didn't say there was no workaround or alternate setting. I just expected something new and different from M$

Hi there

4 things I don't like about W7.

1) The HIDEOUS size of the menu when you click the screen - I don't use a white stick so why does this thing have to use such a HUGE part of the screen Real estate. On a really large monitor it looks totally REDICULUOUS. I'm not getting into the Classic vs New Menu but the wretched thing SHOULD BE CUSTOMISABLE.

2) You CAN'T remove, add or customize anything on the RIGHT hand section of the menu.

3) No "Virtual Desktop" -- note here I'm not talking about Multiple monitors or desktops -- I would just like a desktop that extends further than the Real screen size -- this is very very useful for example with Huge spreadsheets with loads of columns.

4) probably the biggest bugbear - New Users can't hose it up very easily.

Cheers
jimbo

I don't know about that, but I will give you this - a real pro can hose it very well.
