Set up SmartScreen Filter dialog in Internet Explorer is wrongly designed

Submitted by nyp on August 17, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons

Set up SmartScreen Filter dialog in Internet Explorer is not Aero style, uses the Tahoma font, doesn't use command links, has a XP-styled shield icon and a Vista-styled banner.

Style the dialog like the second one on the image.

Install From Disk dialog automatically points to A:\

Submitted by nyp on June 5, 2009 to Annoyance, Legacy

Adding a new device, asking where to find drivers, it'll point to... A:\
Seriously, floppy drives are already dead...

The dialog is also non-Aero style.

Point to the CD/DVD drive instead.

Update the dialog to Aero style.

Wrong Computer icon in "System Tools" folder

Submitted by nyp on April 9, 2009 to Icons

There is a Computer item inside the System Tools folder. It displays the Administrative Tools icon in the more recent builds. However, this is fine in Vista and build 7000.

Change the icon to the Computer icon.

Notification appears floating in mid-air when you increase the screen resolution

Submitted by nyp on May 7, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug

When you get a notification, increase the screen resolution. The problem? The notification's position didn't get updated and it appears floating in mid-air.

Update the notification's position when changing the screen resolution.

Change the font of the website to Segoe UI

Submitted by nyp on August 24, 2009 to Website suggestions

Since the main audience of this website is most likely to use Windows 7, why not change the font of the site to Segoe UI? Looks much more cleaner in my opinion.

Change the font of the website to Segoe UI. (for those who have Firefox and Stylish installed, you can do it now[1])

Alt-Tab and Win+P windows doesn't fade out

Submitted by nyp on November 21, 2009 to Aesthetics

When you use the Alt+Tab or Win+P windows, it doesn't fade out just like any other windows. And for some reason, pressing Alt-Tab and then the Windows key will actually make it fade out.

Make the windows fade out when done using them.

Resource and Performance Monitor has a strange-looking progress bar

Submitted by nyp on November 5, 2009 to Aesthetics

Even though it's a relatively new program in Vista, the Resource and Performance Monitor program has a weird-looking progress bar.

Use the native control and change from indeterminate to determinate.

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

Submitted by nyp on April 9, 2009 to Website suggestions

(NOTE: This only happens in Opera and IE)

In the "Post a suggestion" screen, the "Website suggestions" category splits into two lines. Obviously, this doesn't look nice.

Help in Internet Protocol is not integrated into Windows Help and Support

Submitted by nyp on September 28, 2009 to Usability

Help in Internet Protocol is not integrated into Windows Help and Support. Some of them even open up that infamous "sorry, no help for you because winhlp32.exe is deprecated, blame the developer for being so lazy instead".

Integrate the help into Windows Help and Support.
