    I have 256,000 windows open and in use (well 7) and I have minimised them
    all(show desktop) so I can pop one window up

    Cant be done with this useless POS because when you pop one window up it
    pops all other windows up too - grrrrr

    Vista also has trouble 'paneing' windows

    Then Microsoft have the brass gaul to describe Windows 7 window paneing as
    some new breakthru "feature" that was standard in XP and before

    In actual fact the Windows 7 window paneing can only ever be described as "a
    feature" if compared directly to POS Vista that cant perform due to
    incompetent programming

    There should be a law against deliberately deceiving the public

    Sorta reminds me of Vista *New* *Search* *Feature* which cant find it's own
    ace with both hands - unlike XP which performed searches with ease

    All i want to do is copy a link to my desktop whilst I'm burning a movie to
    DVD - but this is impossible with Vista that wont let me see the desktop
    with *any* window open

    As a result I will have to wait 20 mins (for DVD to finish burning) before I
    can make a short cut - It doesn't get worse than that!!!!!!!!

    Multi-tasking - i dont think so - Even my 1985 Amiga could do more than one
    thing at once

    I think MS should refund everyone who bought Vista as not fit for purpose -
    because it's sheet

  3. This complaint sounds like you are unsure of what you can do. ;-)

    Why do you need to see your desktop to actually copy anything to it. You
    realize it is just a folder - right? If you can explore the drive - you can
    copy files to your desktop (or any other place.)

    Windows Key + R --> Type in:
    "%UserProfile%\Desktop"
    --> Click OK.
    (Yes - put in the quotation marks.)

    There's your desktop.

    Could probably do this in several other ways - but I don't know what DVD
    burning application you are using and I have not had this issue.

    Doesn't do that to me. I can minimize all windows then restore any or
    all independently as I like.

    Sounds like your problem, not Vista's.

  5. I'm not sure why I am telling you this...

    You can click on a single icon to open a single window. Did you know that?

    As for "deliberately deceiving the public" - some people are easier to
    deceive than others.

    Struggling to believe that!

    You have not experienced using the 'show desktop' icon (minimise all windows
    to task bar in single click) & popping one up only to find Vista pops all
    windows up???

  9. Although you really over-snipped, the answer to your query as now given is,
    "No, I have not experienced what you just described." I used Vista x64
    Ultimate for about a year on my laptop before I upgraded to Windows 7
    Ultimate. I just tried to reproduce it on what I have left (a couple of
    Windows XP machines and a couple of Windows 7 x64 systems) and I still
    cannot reproduce it.

    Doesn't mean it is not happening to you, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

    However - I was referring to the (because it was an entire thought with a
    definite reference as seen above before you snipped it) about the fact you
    could not get to your desktop to make a shortcut while burning a DVD - thus
    the answer I gave you centered around that whole thing. It is *not*
    impossible nor have I had the issue where I could not get to my desktop
    while burning a DVD.

  10. I no longer have a 'show desktop' icon; I forget how this disappeared, may
    or may not have removed it myself.

    I use the Windows icon on my keyboard together with the letter M to minimise
    all windows.
    I pop one up by clicking on the Taskbar, & don't have Vista popping all
    windows up.

    I'm having no trouble doing that either, I don't know why people rag on
    vista so much, it works just fine for me...
