Among the many threads of annoyance in Microsoft's various versions of their software it's the loss of functionality and control over the last few years that is making me most angry.
* It's not so much that the Ribbon is a mess. It's that they removed the option to customise the various menus and remove the stuff we'd never use. (You can only hide a whole menu then recreate your own version)
*It's that they buried users' own documents in with the system's settings (where they should never be) and used a pretend folder that only appears to contain them.
*It's that they removed "Insert from scanner" in Office
*It's that they've hidden creating System Restore points like it was a dirty secret.
*It's that they have removed local backup/save in Onenote 2016 (Unless you have a 365 subscription)
*It's that they first removed the Start menu, then brought it back in way that makes it virtually impossible to keep tidy and organised.
*There's the strange partitioning tool that will only allow shrinking from one side of a partition so that you can't grow into it from the opposite non-adjacent side of the next.
*And then this Safe Mode nonsense
Over these last few years it has almost seemed as if MS execs sit round in a little committee to decide which bits can make the users lives a bit easier, then remove them.
