Office isn't part of Windows; there isn't, will not; and shouldn't; be an OS Feedback link on it.

Opera has this; it's a big annoyance switching between it and IE and not having this functionality.

Restore the orb inside the ribbons

To quote the Office UI blog:

"I mentioned before how special the corners of the screen are because they're effectively infinitely tall and wide.

The bottom-left and bottom-right corners are taken up by the Windows taskbar, so those can't be used by Office. The upper-right corner is used for the window close button in each app, so it's kind of off-limits as well.

The upper-left corner, though, in most programs is used for a system menu which is mostly intended to be used via the keyboard: not a good use of the most premium real-estate on the screen.

In Office 2007, we decided to take advantage of that corner by using it for the Office button.

Magic Corner: Office Button in the upper-left corner

Although the button itself is round, the hit target for it actually extends on a maximized window all the way to the upper-left edge of the screen.

As a result, accessing the Office menu to Save, Open, Print, Send (or to access one of your Recent Documents) is ultra-efficient. Fitts' Law was actually one of the driving forces behind the Office Button design. "

Hold Alt + Click on refresh button to go up (and other hold-alt usefulness)

Wrote on January 12, 2009, 10:28am

Alt+Up arrow goes up, clicking in the tree can take you up, clicking in the breadcrumbs takes you up.

Breadcrumbs become file path if you click the empty space, or use Alt+D.

I'm begging you, *please* bring back Windows Movie Maker, at *least*.

So make that six commands instead of five. Like I said, if they added 30 commands you can still fit it all in three /single click/ toolbars and still have 25 pixels saved over a /two click/ ribbon method.
