Help for digital signatures cannot be used

Submitted by nyp on August 15, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug

If you try to get help for digital signatures for programs, the only help you're going to get is frustration.

Update it so it uses Windows Help and Support.

Allow user to optionally make "HomeGroup" less prominent

Submitted by broccauley on August 14, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Icons, Usability

In Windows Explorer there is a persistent 'HomeGroup' icon taking up valuable space in the left-hand pane of Windows Explorer. I do not use this feature, nor do I intend to use it (see no difference between this and a standard network, plus (more...)

Allow the HomeGroup icon to be optionally hidden or removed by the user.
If removed, then allow it to be removed completely by the user in control panel (like Internet Explorer).

It should perhaps also be categorised under 'Network' (more...)

Windows 7 Aero VSYNC option

Submitted by impi on August 14, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

Actually you cant disable vsync without completly disabling the desktop composition. For the most people, the input lag caused by vsync isn't noticeable and the tearing is more annoying, but for some people like me the input lag is more annoying (more...)

An option to disable vsync with desktop composition active would be fine.

Minimised window border corners in Aero Peek are ugly

Submitted by Cuppa on August 13, 2009 to Aesthetics

When using Aero Peek, minimised and non-minimised windows are rightly differentiated in appearance*. However, the corners of minimised windows look a bit strange on a light background and downright ugly on a dark background. See the screenshot.

(more...)

Make the window corners the same as those of non-minimised windows.

IE SSL certificate dialog only offers Install Certificate button to administrators

Submitted by jstangroome on August 12, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

If a standard user navigates to a HTTPS website with an untrusted certificate in IE, chooses to proceed, then opens the certificate information dialog, the button to Install Certificate is hidden.

If the standard user then starts IE elevated (more...)

The Install Certificate button should always be available and should only require elevation when the user chooses the option to trust the certificate for the entire system.

Autohidden taskbar stays unhidden until Window that wants attention is brought to the foreground

Submitted by TBOB13 on August 12, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

Autohidden taskbar stays unhidden until Window that wants attention is brought to the foreground, therefore hiding the bottom of the current foreground window.

This has been a problem in Windows for as long as I can remember (at least since (more...)

There should be an option to configure a timeout or limit how many times each window that wants attention should flash before the taskbar autohides again.

It can be very annoying if you are working on something important and someone IMs (more...)

Aero Basic dark border colour changes at top of side edges

Submitted by Cuppa on August 11, 2009 to Aesthetics

The dark grey outer border colour on Aero Basic windows changes slightly just beneath the Close button (and at the same point on the left edge). See the screenshot.

(Even by my standards this is nitpicking - but I don't see why it (more...)

Use the same colour along the entire side edges.

As a workaround, either disable InPrivate Filtering or set it to the "Choose..." setting, then allow "jquery.min.js" from googleapis.com.

Text glow in title bar is clipped on maximised IE8 window

Submitted by Cuppa on August 9, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance

When an Internet Explorer 8 window is maximised, the glow behind the text in the title bar is clipped at the bottom (visible due to the extended glass). This is not an issue when the window is not maximised.

Screenshot is on a black background (more...)

Let the text glow extend beneath the dimensions of the title bar.

Windows Explorer arrows autohide and don't come back unless I click on them several times

Submitted by pyrates on August 9, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

In windows explorer , I noticed that after a while the arrows beside each folder will autohide itself. To get it back, I not only have to click on the folder, but I have to double click on a folder that is in that folder to finally get them back. I (more...)

2 Solutions:

1. To bring them back, I should only hover over the area where they were and then they should show up.

2. Give me the option to disable the auto hiding of the arrows in windows explorer as it is just annoying (more...)
