I’ve been tooling all over, jotting down Vista tips, now that I run it on two outta four machines… the problem is that I don’t remember who I’ve shared tips with!
What do you notice about this?
One of the things that sorta irks me about OSX is that you can’t close a Window from “either” side. In Windows 3.1 it was in the upper left hand corner, with a double-click on the system icon. Since Windows 95, there was an X button on the right hand corner. In some cases I use the X, in other cases I use the system icon especially when I have a TS window running on a huge desktop.
In Windows Vista, I was greatly annoyed that they took away the icon on Windows Explorer windows, on the left side… then I hit Alt+Space – a shortcut key from at least 1992 – that shows the system menu as if you single clicked the system icon. Lo! There is a system icon on Explorer windows – it’s just invisible! Double-clicking the icon area will still close it.
What about Office 2007? The system icon went messing there too – in place of it there’s an Office Button which drops down a “common” menu – it’s sorta of like a File menu on steroids… double click the Office Button and it closes there too.
Just another tip (and a reminder for myself!)
