Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Windows Media Player 12 just screams for more upgrading:

- New visualizations
- New ripping options (in addition of WAV, MP3 and WMA I would really like to see AAC [HE-AAC] and FLAC)
- New skins
- Improved Graphic Equalizer (maybe even an option to import custom made presets from other media player software such as Winamp)
- Better Sync handling (an option to re-encode music files that are not compatible with the user's MP3 player, which currently doesn't work for me)

These options would definitely prevent me from using any other media player software as I am still very satisfied with the current version of Windows Media Player

Windows Sidebar
Redesign the Windows Sidebar feature from Windows Vista. It would be great if we could have more control over our Gadgets, most importantly, saving Gadget settings. If, for whatever reason, I need to close all my Gadgets, each time I wish to add them back I need to set them up from scratch (besides, having to close all the gadgets one by one is bothersome, and I do not like killing processes in the task Manager). Furthermore, an option to include or exclude the sidebar ruler from the Desktop would be great; but the ruler is the thing that should be redesigned. The look is great, but it prevents us from having any space between the Gadgets.

Windows 7 Home Premium

I tell you what would be nice, when you hover over an icon on the superbar and get the preview, if there was a button you could press that kept that preview up and on top. For instance when playing a video in VLC, I would like the preview to stay popped up and on top so I can surf the tinternet and still keep an eye on the film or video.

Windows 7 32 bit build 7600

Multiple monitor taskbars. I don't think that it is right I have to pay a fair bit of money for Display Fusion Pro just to have a multi monitor taskbars.

I remember reading that it wasn't included because no single option was suitable, so why not propose multiple options?

One taskbar can act as the standard taskbar, for launching applications and also containing the startbar and system tray. The other bars can be used solely for displaying windows active on that monitor or active through out the system.

Another possibility may be simply stretching the existing taskbar over multiple screens.

In task manager, when selecting processes, the ability to "Restart Process" from the right click context menu. It gets a bit annoying when you are trying to get your start orb just right. I would also like a more accessible hotkey for task manager as opposed to ctrl+shift+esc because it's ridiculously unwieldy for something I use so much. Perhaps ctrl+shift+start would be a better option or perhaps ctrl+shift+a?

My major disputes about Windows 7 are petty so if there's any form of major changes for the good I'll be very surprised because I can't think of much to change.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

yes, the ability to make the taskbar totally transparent without affecting the buttons and other stuff so the display will extend to the bottom, just like a docked supertaskbar or a floating system tray icons and buttons

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

1. WMP should have an old "open file" option/button and thus be able to play a file without creating a list or putting it into a library.

2. The default location of user files should be: a) customizable, b) on a separate partition from the OS, c) on should be able to rename default locations from the generic "My ...".
Applications, such as WMP, should refer to the default locations determined by users, rather than to the hard-wired standard "My ...".

3. The temporary files should get cleaned up automatically, both when a program is closed and when it gets uninstalled.

4. One should be able to customize background colors, especially in Windows Explorer without using third-party software - or just change the default from all that white.

5. Copying/moving files, although better than in Vista, should still be improved and give consistent speeds depending on hardware capabilities.

windows 7

I have a simple request

All dialogs should re-open at the last used size and position.

I can't believe that dialogs like Services and Device Manager still open at a default MS size - always too small for comfortable use, so they have to be resized. Other dialogs, such as, File> Right-click> Properties should re-open in the last used position - not in random positions like they currently do. (Try selecting various files in a folder and hitting Alt-Enter - No two Properties dialogs open in the same place - lol).

I've received a few or these and rejected them. I'd just like to say to the people that set them to me, its nothing personal. I'm not antisocial or anything I guess I just didn't get the point of them. I guess I'm old school because I don't tweet, facebook or hang out on MSN. The first couple were...
