am so horribly frustrated. So much time is wasted on basic things in win7
who needs 3year-old idiotic icons?
we transferred my disks out of George/ XP Professional to new win7/ 2010 Office
there's no love lost.
1. MS in infinite wisdom locked all my folders and files to read-only. even the registrations are identical. am photographer.
2. not just disks from George but all 3 terrabytes as well
there are about 7tb of images.
1. the folder view system on win7/ 2010 is juvenile crap. I need archival management for large photography files--so every day I am wasting hours and hours of time just fighting with the stupid icons.
I need thumbnails--quick flip for entire folder as in XP so that when I am checking folders for content, I can get through quickly and see what's there. Not some stupid viewer one image at a time...duh? Microsoft regresses.
Like normal any MS viewer is perfect catastrophe... ok, so now they have a better way to magnify something with a slider. Great innovative advancement.
and how can I get rid of those horrific crappy oversized childish icons on desktop.
with XP I cold tailor everthing in layout and did, so my desktop icons were 17 or 18 and arranged neatly according to their functions. Now I have microsoft infantile icons... and is very very distressing to me as Microsoft has no aesthetics and it is my computer, not Ballmer's.
I don't care if Ballmer spends his whole day making bad paper airplanes out of XP professional and playing with stupid large icons in win7-- I need fast practical thumbnail flipping power so I can change a simple list over into thumbnails to check the folders and get out.
I also need a way to make the old-fashioned xp listing layout so I can quickly check folders whether they are processed. Each time you close the damn folders in win7, they revert back to their childish icons. If you try to transfer a folder, such as a delete folder from one folder to the next, they revert back to their stupid childish icons. It's huge waste of time if you do photography because the entire day you are fighting with balmy thinking and stupid icons.
I need the capacity of ordering my folders so I know images per column, quick flip thumbnails and easy preview-- now if I need to know the damn size of the image I'm looking at I have to open properties, hunt for a tab and do two clicks... in xp, I only needed to glance over on the side panel and I knew I had 800 x 533 at 72 dpi and not full res image.
by being clever over there, they are ever so stupid. sorry but it seems that there is never a time when Microsoft can go from one system or downgrade to next upgrade without screwing over their users.
Is there a way to make the xp quick thumbnail flip?
and all told its about 8TB of images and folders that I am going through and each time I have to reset my preferences, I am really, truly angry because if they went and did this kind of crap over in Corbis on Corbis photographers... well, they wouldn't.
the whole stupidity of photo library, document library--I'd love to delete. It interferes with dowloading and file management. Just more stress.
I can't do nothing without win7 subverting it to some stupid microsoft micro-management.
Sometimes I've reset my permissions to use folders more than 3x and still find that win7 overrides and reverts to read-only. It's stressful and eats huge time. If only limited to disks in Hank, then it would be manageable 4TB, but adding externals, it's never-ending battle.
Do people over in Microsoft actually work? even if they put little spots on the back of the stupid icons, we could play dominoes.
I will have new motherboard put in George and go back to XP. it's too much a frigging hassle with win7.
George would freeze and not shut down, so after shutting him off, he wouldn't restart for 6-12 hours and techie says this is motherboard problem. XP is so much more efficient to deal with than win7.
maybe not as good opsys, but at least no frigging childish icons and I can tailor my layouts to my needs basically.
