Submitted by Fikusas on March 3, 2010 to Annoyance, Usability

Hover effect NOT disappearing

Submitted by DBS on February 24, 2010 to Aesthetics, Annoyance

Recently, when hovering on top of an open or closed program in the taskbar, i see the hovering, but when the mouse moves away form the icon, AND the taskbar, the hover effect stays there as if the mouse was still on top of the icon.

I would like this to get fixed, i don't know if it does have something to do with the .dll's??..maybe i screwd up some of them by installing not-totally compatible software for windows 7.

Windows Photo Viewer decreases quality and size of files when rotated

Submitted by kiwiant on February 23, 2010 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

When you rotate an image in Windows Photo Viewer it overwrites the previous file with one of lower quality. For example, a file that was origionally 76,470 bytes in size is decreased to 60,129 bytes after a single rotate and 59,889 bytes after 3 rotates. (more...)

Use the orientation attribute in the EXIF data to store rotation information and render appropriatley.
