Microsoft Windows 7

Post by Dojan5 on Tue Nov 04 2008, 02:44

Yupp yupp.
Got it up and running yesterday.
Some aspects of it are VERY confusing. For instance I believe I have lost my tray, as I cannot see the poweriso icon.
Anyhow. Windows 7 comes shipped with all programs that you might need. Sadly, not many of them are very good.
For instance I'm not too sure about the new WordPad, it is a little, too much. The new Taskbar, I belive some users called it Superbar, looks awful, but it is quite handy actually. As are some ways using Windows overall. For instance, drag a window to the top edge of the screen, it gets maximized.
I'll put updates here later on Razz

Microsoft's latest "implementation" makes the quicklaunch unnessecary.

If you look at the screenshot, and look at my taskbar, there are several icons, those function as where minimized apps go and functions as a quicklaunch.

Docking.

This is something I've wanted to see for a long time now.
Drag the window to one part of the screen and it gets docked to that part. Drag it to the top and it gets maximized. I think the latter is not that useful, but as there is no button for the first two...

Are there problems with the setup like vista?

BTW why does my taskbar look like the vista one, how do I make it so it only has the icons?

Congratulations. I just got XP installed again Razz
And it uses American keyboard layout, so I cannot use any swedish characters, PLUS I have to guess where some letters are... Annoying as hell.

Me too Razz
If the wallpapers don't have a resolution above 1280x1024 then I won't use it unless I like it
a LOT.
Most of the wallpapers I make have the res 1600x1200, once I made one double the size Razz
