Most search engines will perform a better search for "windows 7" than windows 7. Treating the name as an expression rather than two words

Explorer Nav Pane - Takes up real estate on the screen when you are not using it.
You can go into Organize-Layout and turn it off to recover needed screen real estate; then back on to get the utilities back, but this is a bit cumbersome. Is there a way to auto hide the Nav Pane? If not, it would be an asset in future revisions. Ditto The Edit Bar at the bottom of the screen (Pictures/Music). This would be a little harder, as I autohide the Task Bar.
I use both of these utilities, but don't always want them taking up valuable real estate on the screen.

F11 is a much used key for me. Can we make the Organize bar hide with the rest of the chaff at the top of the screen?

Just the files mam... Nothing but the files.

I hate that I can't delete the unwanted MS supplied themes.

Can you be a bit more specific? Windows Updates (+Microsoft Update) works perfectly well.

You should be able to delete them if you take ownership of the folder/files.
