Pop-out Window for list of Programs. (Does not need to be Explorer)

Submitted by hoopla_punta on December 14, 2008 to Aesthetics, Usability

Allow users to have a Pop-out Window for list of Programs.

This will be easier for them to move the icons (and folders) and also, have a good full view of all their software instead of being limited to their list (and full high res glory (more...)

Create a Program Window.

How do you want to call it? Program Manager, Program Window... pls comment.

Font Shadow on Desktop????

Submitted by my eyes are sore on February 24, 2010 to Usability

From reading earlier posts it is apparent that many users are unhappy with the shadow fonts on the desktop. I tried to improve it by contrast and size, but the images are still blurry and my eyes already hurt from straining after just a couple hours. (more...)

Remove the shadow and use a clear font such as Arial in white or black. Maybe there can be an option for color, but REMOVE the shadow.

Wasted Space in Native Applications

Submitted by robbiejuk08 on December 29, 2008 to Aesthetics

One thing I have noticed in Windows 7 and Windows Vista is the amount of space wasted in Windows native applications.

The control panel has lots of apps that have wasted space.

Here is a small list:

Windows (more...)

Native apps should not have wasted space (White Space), if more space is needed then apps should expand automatically.

I have used Windows Vista as an example you can see from the attached image what i mean, this problem is evident in Windows (more...)

Wtf is this?

Submitted by Arayta on December 14, 2008 to Annoyance, Bug

Okay, I've been getting this error about once every hour or so and I have no idea what it means. See the picture for details.

It doesn't appear to affect anything, but it looks important and it's really annoying.

Fix it, tell me more about the error, or stop it from happening. It's getting annoying real quick.

Please comment before demoting!
Suggestion:

A Windows Utility that helps low-end users track their computer. It like a more intense parental control, but more meant to help in diagnosis of problems. It would use simple terms like:
