Let the superbar item glow after starting an app by the shortcut Win + {Number}

Submitted by sibbl on December 17, 2008 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Bug, Usability

When I want to open an application by clicking Windows + 2 I don't get any hint whether Windows recognized my key stroke or not. I have to wait until the application windows appears.

In Explorers Navigation Pane there is a dead space. You have to click the text in order to go to that link. Clicking the space beside the text on the left side just selects the item but does nothing else. On the right side you do not get the "hand" (more...)

Should work like in Vista.

Devices and Printers window - icon and warning problems

Submitted by nitrous9200 on November 10, 2008 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Bug

My computer has a UPS plugged into it which interfaces with some desktop software but doesn't need a driver (in XP, Vista, or 7). The device manager always shows that 'UPS' with an exclamation point and tells me there is no driver installed. (more...)

Give an option to silence the warning (as with the tray icons).

Make the device's real image always show up, and make the generic icon centered.

Fix the beta code that makes this buggy behavior occur.
