    1 - In windows explorer backsapce no longer goes up a directory, it goes to
    the previsouly visted dir same as alt + left arrow. there's no shortcut for
    going to parent dir.

    2 - In command prompt, droping a folder to the windows is disabled, in
    previous versions of windows it gives the path of that folder. (this applies
    to files too) Also please add a shortcut key for pasting.

    3. Restart your computer no longer prompts for user confirmation.

    4. there should be a way to use the simple XP picture preview slide show for
    slower machines.
    the new one is a lot slower and more resource intensive with all those 3D

    What do you guys think?

  2. 1) Still works for me... anyone else?
    2) This is to be fixed - I'm sure this was available in previous builds, and
    am sure it'll be in future builds.
    3) + 4) I see what you mean.

    1. Go to Computer and type in c:\windows\system32 in the address bar
    If you hit backspace in vista it goes back to Computer last visited folder
    in previous versions it goes to the parent dir which is c:\windows\

    Whoopeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! At last, Microsoft has recognized that I do know
    what I'm doing when I click the "shut down the machine" button, and no
    longer questions me about my decision!
    Now, if we could just convince Microsoft to let us have control over our own
    machines and stop asking for permission to do our everyday tasks. I mean,
    Windows needs permission to open the Device Manager? Gimme a break!
