What I Hate About Windows 7.
As nice as Win7 is, there are some small things that are really irritating:
- I can't sync my Palm. Palm says I need a Bluetooth connection to the PC to sync; which would require me to buy new hardware for the PC so that it could receive Bluetooth signals. I have a perfectly good USB cable, which worked just fine to sync my Palm to the very same machine when it ran WinXP. (To be fair, this is less of a problem since I got a iPhone last month.)
- The mouse cursor gets stuck in the top corner of one of my monitors. I have dual monitors at work, with one slightly taller than the other. As I move the cursor to the shorter monitor, sometimes my mouse gets trapped in the top corner of the taller monitor. That sort of thing shouldn't be too tricky to fix; I didn't have the same problem with the same hardware when it was WinXP.
- Using the arrow keys to navigate in the File Explorer doesn't select a new folder; it just displays files from the new folder, even when the directory window has focus. This has caused me to delete the wrong folder once (which is disastrous on a network file server).
