Add Network Location wizard has an old icon

Submitted by nyp on January 22, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons, Legacy

Add Network Location wizard displays the rundll32.exe file icon at the superbar.
However, if you use Flip 2D, you will actually get an icon... a Windows 2000-styled icon (shwebsvc.dll) to be exact.
(to open this wizard, go to Computer > (more...)

Place an icon for the superbar and Flip 2D. Map Network Drive seems to be a good candidate.

More taskbar combining options.

Submitted by DannyStrong on June 7, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Icons, Usability

I really like the "pinning" idea with windows 7. Though I wish we were given more customization on the dynamics of the icons.

For instance. I like to pin my web browser to my taskbar to have easy access, I have dual monitors so (more...)

Allow me to specify certain parameters to each of my pinned applications. For instance I would tell my pinned WMP icon to always be "combined" (only show the icon), but my web browser application would be set to "combine as needed". (more...)

The Fax icon has jaggies.

Submitted by a7an on January 23, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons

Compared to the other icons in the screenshot, the Fax icon is not as sharp because of the jaggies.

Apply anti-aliasing.

Content Advisor is outdated

Submitted by nyp on January 23, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons, Legacy

Content Advisor dialogs have outdated icons, an unstyled button. wasted space and etc...

I think that they should just completely demolish Content Advisor because Parental Controls is much more powerful and isn't buried inside Internet Options.

Multiple download progress bar previews

Submitted by eikonoklastes2 on January 10, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons, Usability

When you initiate a download, its progress is shown in the IE icon in the taskbar. If you start a 2nd, longer download, the preview is replaced with this one and there's no way to get that preview back.

Incorporate multiple download progress bars (that are stacked), with, say, a maximum of 4.

Separate certain Taskbar buttons even when "Always combine" is enabled

Submitted by cbohorquezm on February 17, 2009 to Annoyance, Icons, Usability

For most applications, like Explorer Windows, Browsers, etc. the default automatic grouping of Taskbar buttons is really appropriate, avoids opening unnecessary additional windows, and keeps everything much more organized.

However, since (more...)

The user would be able to specify which applications would ALWAYS remain ungrouped, with separate Taskbar buttons for each window, even when the "Always combine" option is enabled. All other applications should stay grouped. *See Image*

Advanced Recovery Methods uses wrong icon

Submitted by nyp on February 8, 2009 to Icons

Advanced Recovery Methods in Recovery in Control Panel uses the wrong icon, or to be specific, the Flip 3D icon, which has nothing to do with Recovery!

Change it to the Recovery icon.

Device Manager: Default printing view could be optimized

Submitted by gdvlive on February 4, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons, Usability

(Build 7000) Well I just connected my (pretty old) printer and I just got into the new Device Center (?) View for it. Well the idea is very nice and it also looks quite good... But there are a few things that could be optimized...

Please look at the screenshot:
1. The Icons of the "tasks" are from XP and show definitely no printer ;)
2. The task space is pretty small and doesn't resize with the window. I can't read the "0 Dokument(e) in der (more...)
