I think having better diagnostic tools already built into Windows, and I mean like, actual diagnostic tools that don't need third party apps to do. Maybe a revamp of the Microsoft Management Console? That is very Xpish to me. Too old for my boat to float.
Hmm, maybe ditch Disk Management and turn it into Disk Manager so it can have better tools to deal with hard and solid drives; since there's already a Task Manager and Device Manager. And also be able to recover a partition, maybe that might be wishful thinking. :happy: Oh, and an idea for the Management Console, organize the different managers together. Do a UI change for that one.
These have been my thoughts and feelings for today...
I want the Windows 7 start menu back.
How about Nvidia 3D vision enabled desktop! That would look brilliant
I would like to get the option to remove the start screen and revert back to old desktop view only.
The new start screen is nice, but it would be more useful if I had a touchscreen monitor or a tablet to use it with.
I think the Start Screen is such an interesting interface to use. I use a desktop and I find it rather pretty, kind of not fully practical, but then again, this is the Developer's Preview build 8100. The latest known build is like 8400 so we'll see.
It's something that people need to use to get used to. It was the same thing with Office 2007; at first people didn't like it but after using it and learning it, it's hard to imagine using anything else.
But what I do really want to see happen are better keyboard shortcuts and better navigating between Metro and Classic interfaces. It literally took me almost half an hour just to figure out how to get to the shut down options.......
Oh wait, I just figured out that Win and Tab shuffle through open windows between the two!
I also want to see on at least in the Classic interface for the Start Screen or just in general, the option to customize the background of it. As much as green is fun to look at, bleh! And customize the complement color of the Metro, so instead of white and green, white and red or black. Maybe part of Personalization with window color? As for Start Screen on desktop since it's a full on switch between interfaces, it'd be nice to have the background be a translucent white color so you can still see the Desktop, but with the Start Screen taking center stage. Or maybe black or red?....
HAHA! And one last thing, I coined the term that if the word "Start" was on the bottom left of the screen, it's deep time to upgrade. Please get rid of the word Start.
Revamped right click context "it's remained unchanged forever"
Crude mockup below "and yes I know I forgot refresh".
Refresh could be in a sub menu of View
Cut and copy options could be a sub menu of cut
New would bring up a sub menu of contexts ranging from shortcut,folder,cmd console etc.etc.
Screen resolution could be a sub menu of personalize
