    ATI Radeon Mobility x1400 here...but I think that the extra space on the right click panel don't mess with the graphic card

    Nvidia 8500GT 512 here... I believe it's not a card problem either, natri, but I should try a driver update. I have those recognized by Windows7 natively

    I think I found what the Extra Space is, and this must happen to all of you 6956 testers...

    It only happens to files in the Libraries... other files in c:\ or Desktop or other folders don't do this.

    My assumption: Microsoft will try to include an icon or description on the left pane of the context menu for library items, but it's incomplete or missing in the version yet.

    Hmm, I got that weird space to the left when I installed winrar on my old build 6801. Removing it resolved the issue; I installed 7zip instead. So far I've had no strange or buggy issues with 6956, besides a small oddity with boot times. No ghosts. And I'm running on Nvidia too.

    then i guess its the context menu handling by a third party software product....
    can anyone confirm???

    Right next to the Start button this "ghost" sits, sometimes large, sometimes small...probably related to whatever I have down there but the fact that it exists is annoying. I can't send feedback as I don't have an activated copy of this OS.
    I cannot reproduce either of the symptoms on three very different computers. The worst is with an old AGP ATI 9600 pro?

    Fwiw. You can send feedback to Microsoft, even with an unactivated copy. You are limited in what you can say. Just click the Feedback tool and cancel the message. You then have the full availability.

    then i guess its one of those universal problems that have many solutions...
    do you know which programs have installed context menus???

    YES IT IS CONFIRMED!

    Winrar context handling causes the extra space on the left!

    Removing it solves it...

    Thank you, napilopez. Cheers
