To stop us doing stupid things when large numbers of files are selected, Windows removes most of the “add-on” entries from the context menu. Nice idea in principle, but if you’re trying to add a load of source files to a source controller then you can’t. http://www.ghacks.net/2011/03/05/fix-context-menu-items-missing-in-windows-explorer/ Folder view is different even, though you have set them to be the same Under Windows XP you would configure a folder just the way you like it and then go to Tools->Folder Options…, select the View tab then click the Apply to Folders button. From that point on your lovely settings would be used across all folders. This is not the same under Windows 7. If you read the Folder views title it says viewS and the blurb says “You can apply the view (such as Details or Icon) that you are using for this folder to all folders of this type“. Windows 7 decides what class of folder it is and lets you create a viewing profile for how to view the contents of that folder. We are not sure how it decides, probably Microsoft Voodoo, or how you can find out what classes of folder you have. The up shot of this, is that if you have a all folders of pictures will show thumbnails and all folders of Word documents to show full details. To make this work you must go to a folder and set it up the way you want and click through to the Apply to Folders button. You’ll have to do this for each of the folder classes individually. Windows Explorer expands folders inappropriately, jumping the folder you expand to the bottom of the navigation pane This is by far and away the most annoying bug I’ve found in Windows 7 so far. If you use the left hand directory tree to navigate your way around the filing system then you will definitely have noticed this bug. As you expand each of the tree branches the branch you have just expanded jumps to the bottom of the screen. So to navigate down a directory you have to expand, scroll the newly expanded directory back to the mouse pointer, expand the next folder down, scroll the newly expanded directory back to the mouse pointer. If you keep the folder at the bottom where it has moved itself you still have to scroll upwards because you can’t see the next folder to expand. Just to show how much Microsoft listens to its customers there are 23 pages of requests to fix this on the Microsoft answers site spanning 2 years, with no official answer. There is also an issue on Microsoft’s Connect site with a hundred people asking for this issue to be addressed. There is however a list of work-a-rounds, one of which is to install ClassicShell which is a SourceForge project that, amongst other things fixes explorer and replaces the crappy new start menu with the old style one. Give it a go! Resources If you can’t find what you are looking for here, then try these pages: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/tims/archive/2009/01/12/the-bumper-list-of-windows-7-secrets.aspx
I originally thought the Windows 7 UI was a big improvement and couldn’t see much wrong with it.
Then I switched to the Classic theme, realised how much more screen-space I had and subsequently how much more work I now get done without the distraction of UI fluff.
The JumpLists are good though.
