Display media file types in a larger veiw, and the rest remain as tiled veiws

Submitted by agent11 on April 8, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Icons, Usability

I want to have my files and folders neatly organized, with the great "tiled view".
The only problem: media format files are displayed to small.

Make it so only media file formats (such as, .jpeg, .bmp, .mp3(The album art) etc.), are displayed with a larger icon, making it more visible. So you can quickly see what's in it. ;)

Fonts folder isn't compatible with Extra Large Icons.

Submitted by nyp on April 6, 2009 to Icons

The Fonts folder in the Windows folder isn't compatible with Extra Large Icons. Weird thing is that there IS one in main.cpl

Change it to the one inside main.cpl
It should be an easy resource swap.

Windows Installer (msiexec.exe) has an old icon

Submitted by nyp on April 5, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons, Legacy

Windows Installer has an OLD Windows 2000/ME style icon.

It's gotta go, get that icon gone. Replace it with something a little more Vista-like.
Also, remove that silly little window that says "Please wait while Windows configures [program]..." with the highly inaccurate progress bar.

Icon turn off Anti-aliasing option re-done. see http://www.windows7taskforce.com/view/1773

Submitted by agent11 on April 1, 2009 to Icons

I have altered the positioning of the option to turn off Anti-aliasing by popular demand, this will help stop clogging up the right click menu as others have suggested.

I simply put the option in the "icons properties" shortcut tab. no more option clogging up room on the icon's right click menu

Improve the quality of "flat pixel drawing" icons on the desktop

Submitted by agent11 on March 31, 2009 to Icons

The new large icons in both Windows vista and Windows 7, use icons larger than 6x6, making the developer to make larger icons, but, older programs that only have up to 6x6 icons must be enlarged by windows. Windows does a pretty fine job of making the (more...)

The solution is simple: make a option to turn on/off anti-aliasing for enlarged 6x6 icons, via right clicking on that icon. So if a sharp pixel icon looked blurred, just right click -> turn off anti-aliasing and your done! Makes the desktop icons wether (more...)

[Taskbar] It is not easy to turn off the thumbnails

Submitted by litemininyuszika on March 22, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Icons, Usability

Yes, they can be switched off, but for a beginner, it is very difficult, especially if s/he are using a home version. And if you click on a button, which is combined, and the thumbnails are off, they are also shown.

It must be possible to turn off the thumbnails from within taskbar settings, and if you click a button, which is combined, do not show the thumbnails, just a list, like Basic theme does, but with a little glass.
