I'll you what I don't like... the personalization menu. It doesn't make any sense. When you change some part of the current theme, it assumes you want to save that as a new theme instead of saving under the current one. When you choose a desktop wallpaper it seems to randomly decide which pictures you want to have rotate. You check one image, and suddenly they're all checked, but it's difficult to tell. You select a new wallpaper folder and it checks every image automatically. It's completely unintuitive.

Hi peter and Welcome to SevenForums

It's really not that hard, select a folder, do clear all then check the ones you want to rotate.

I've used a registry hack (found here) to add a "take ownership" option to the right-click menu for any folder, but even after doing that there are many folders I can't really mess with as much as I'd like to.

Like the Windows.old folder. It wouldn't let me just delete it, even after I transferred ownership, etc. to myself. Also, it gives me error messages about access being denied when I try to change the permissions on my user folder.
