Submitted by nick on December 9, 2008 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

On a laptop, when docked and having two monitors you can place dialogs on both monitors.
The position of the dialogs are saved when closed so when you close dialogs on monitor 2, they reopen on monitor 2.

Windows should detect that the dialog is outside of the bounds of monitor 1 and move it to the same location but on monitor 1.

Shell integration problem

Submitted by GTAfanattic on February 4, 2009 to Aesthetics, Bug

To be honest, I'm not 100% sure how this comes about. It seems to be when a program that is installed in Windows 7 which integrates features into the shell (Right-Click menu primarily), 7 doesn't seem to understand how to size it properly. The (more...)

Do it the way Vista did it? I really don't know, but it's quite a severe problem. Just give the right click menu enough room for the icons where applicable.

<build 7000> Uncustomisable Quick Access Toolbar in Paint and Wordpad (and orange-dotted icons)

Submitted by billerr on January 9, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Icons

1. The Quick Access Toolbar in Paint and Wordpad (the one residing in the title bar, has no options to reorder the icons in it. It just places them in the order in which you activate them.

For example if you have "Save", "Undo" (more...)

1. Add an option for custom-ordering the icons in the dropdown menu of the Quick Access Toolbar, as is the case with the Office 2007 programs. Anyway, replicating the Office Ribbon functionality (than just the looks) would offer more consistency.

XPS viewer error message should say the error only once.

Submitted by .Chris on January 6, 2009 to Aesthetics, Bug

Found this in the XPS Viewer, it says,

"The XPS viewer can not open this document" twice, once in the larger, blue font and one again in the smaller, black font. all in the same message!

Only display this message once, there is no need for it to be said twice.

Windows Media Center Music Viz: Slow, Shows Podcasts

Submitted by alirobe on January 4, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug

Windows Media Center's Music Playback screen (Build 7000) shows all my album artwork slowly scrolling upwards in the background. However, it slows performance to about 2fps on an Intel X3100. Also, it shows podcast (and presumably audiobook) artwork, (more...)

Prerender the album artwork then do a faded wipe to reveal it, or slowly remove the complex shadows and rendering effects used on the artwork once it is placed. Also, do not show album artwork for spoken word, podcast, audiobook and other obvious genres.
