Windows 7, what I don't like.

I can't find anything I don't like about 7, apart from, it will not remember window sizes and positions like XP did.

I had a similar problem with Vista and I wondered if anyone had come across a fix.......without third party software.

It will only remeber the last window opened and so,if like me, you want several windows open at the same time and have resized and positioned them, when you close them you have to start all over again.

Perhaps best described here.

Oh, there's no 'classic' start menu either....

It's a "Feature", mate.

Apparently, Billy and his pals are looking at fixing it in SP1.

I'll stick with XP, for a while. :D

It's because XP uses hidden folder data files to remember each of it's preferences. This feature was never implemented in Vista.

I like the new start menu, mainly because the Search box is so useful for doing DOS, sorry PowerShell, commands and other stuff :D
