Force Safe Mode to use Windows Classic theme

Submitted by nyp on April 6, 2009 to Annoyance

In Safe Mode, it uses the Aero Basic theme. HOWEVER, Themes service is disabled. That means you get to experience one of the most hideous themes ever designed.

Force Safe Mode to use Windows Classic theme.

Combine when Taskbar is full buggy in Aero Basic.

Submitted by hoopla_punta on January 18, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

With the above option selected in Aero Basic, the taskbar goes awfully buggy like in the screenshot.

The Window List still appears (someone tell me what is it called, since there a no previews, they aren't called Live Previews). That (more...)

Fix the bugs, include the suggestion.

[fixed] Aero Peek: no difference between opened and previewed windows

Submitted by tino on January 22, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Usability

Aero Peek is very usefull. But sometimes I "lost" a window because I forgot to click on the thumbnail preview in the taskbar. This is because there is no difference between a "real" opened active window and the Aero Peek preview.

Provide a different design for window previews by:

a. Use the taskbar hottrack color on the glass border or
b. Use a 5% transparency or
c. ...?

[WEBSITE] Create "Website" category

Submitted by limulus on April 8, 2009 to Annoyance, Website suggestions

It seems that about one in ten suggestions on windows7taskforce.com is a suggestion that concerns the WEBSITE rather than Windows 7.

This is not what the suggestion system was created for; it interferes with Windows suggestions. Also, some (more...)

<FIXED>Hiding/showing menu bar in Media Player doesn't work right [7068]

Submitted by nitrous9200 on April 6, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Bug, Usability

Fixed in the RC.
If you hide and/or show the title bar in Media Player (control-M or right click top area), the secondary vertical bar showing the "Organize", "Stream" and "Create playlists" buttons seems to disappear, (more...)

Make the title bar hide and show properly like in previous betas, WMP11, etc etc.

EPG in WMC

Submitted by wierd101 on July 27, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

Windows media center is unable to retrieve program information from the epg data that is broadcast with DVB-T in australia (most likely all countries). On digital televisions this data covers up to the next 24hrs of programs.

Allow users to select this as the source of broadcast information instead of relying on a download service that is not available for most areas. It would much improve the ability to record live television and find out what is on.
