OK, so I have a couple things with Windows XP that I want to go away, if that is at all possible.
First, the start menu. I already switched it to the Windows 98 format, cause I like the look of that better (that is to say, I’m used to it.) But one problem I can’t see mto get rid of. When I go to programs, the list of programs that comes up is small. It only shows the programs that have been used recently. I want it to always show all the programs and folders, so I don’t have to click on that arrow. It annoys me to no end.
Secondly, the network neighborhood icon. Man oh man how this lives to piss me off. I want it to do what it did in Windows 98, and that is show a list of all the comnputers in my workgroup, and then let me go to the entire network, where I see all the workgroups. Instead, it shows an innaccurate list of all the folders on the network. It shows folders tha don’t exists, and folders that did on exist on computers that are no longer on the network. I righ-clik and hit refreash, but that does not help, the same non-existant folders show up. I don;t want to see the folders! And, if I have to resort to seeing them,show the correct ones, and instead of telling me what computer they are on by calling the computer by it’s comment, call it by it’s name. For example, one folder is called
“Downloads on the Jewish Messiah of Computers (CapnAlf)” Why not just say “Downloads on CapnAlf”, since that’s what it is? Stupid, stupid, Win XP.
So, is there any way to allieviate these problems?
