@Mosh Jahan" - You're very much "the glass is half empty" type, I imagine. A lot of your complaints are about trivial things that can be easily rectified or only need configuring once after initial setup."
I'm sorry if you consider the UI trivial and MS breaking the rules it's been saying I should follow on their expensive courses for years
@John 104 "Search can be turned off. its called the indexing service, or, more correctly on Win7, Windows Search."
Yes, the search can be turned off, which makes it a bit difficult to do a search. I'm not on about the search indexing I'm on about the physical act of searching and making changes to that search, which is why I was talking about how you request a search not how vista/w7 actually performs it
See what I put "Search is the same as vista, doesn't search well, doesn't let you search higher or lower in the file structure without going back and reentering your criteria"
"Desktop Icons. Um, Yes you can. Turn Auto Arrange off and you can put them anywhere you want...Seriously, are you that inept of a user that you can't figure these things out"
Can't see where I said this, about the desktop items. Especially as my icons on the desktop are spaced out just where I want them :S
Maybe I'm just that inept
If you're going to call me a liar, you can go and try the computers I've used and the people around me have used and then, and only then, if it behaves completely differently for you than everyone else who I've seen use it, can you call me a liar
It's easier to read and comprehend where something is when you can see the file paths all together i.e.
c:\program files\winapps\logfiles\log 1.txt
c:\program files\winapps\logfiles\log 34234 3.txt
c:\program files\winapps\logfiles\log 20091021 from a car.txt
than via folders
(log 1.txt)c:\program files\winapps\logfiles\
(log 34234 3.txt)c:\program files\winapps\logfiles\
(log 20091021 from a car.txt)c:\program files\winapps\logfiles\
Finding that the log files are in "c:\program files\winapps\logfiles\" is much harder in this view than via the paths column.
"it doesn't stutter at all."
So when you type "windows" for example it doesn't start looking for "w"s then refresh and look for "wi"s etc.
This computer is brand new so presumably it can cope, it's a 3Gb ram 3 Ghz HP
"I find the search function in the start menu a welcome addition I use all the time, even if I'm looking for a program, I use the search to find it, thigns are much faster to find that way. don't know why you would not want to use it, but that's your prefference."
If you can't organise your start menu properly and need to search for things instead of arranging it how you want, that's your affair
And the option to turn it off would be such a crime???
If you disable search entirely it goes, why not an option in the preferences?
"and also, there is no search button beside any shutdown button anywhere in the OS. if you're talking about the start menu search box, it does not have a search button because the search box auto-searches as you type....so that complaint is stupid and is a lie."
Are you blind or stupid? Next to the search box is a little blue button with a magnifying glass in it, when you type it turns into a little blue box with a white cross in it.
"I was gonna go through all your full comment and show how lie you are with your "complaints" but then I thought I'll leave you alone because clearly your comment is not worth anymore of my type dissecting."
Calling me a liar after demonstrating your obvious idiocy!!! It's true, it's not worth your "type" or even your "time"
No, you don't :P
