  • Have done any improvements to the windows explorer tree view ?
    I really liked how it behaved in windows xp and when i moved over to windows 7 i have missed the behavior of the tree view . It have severely affected the usability in a bad way for me.

  • @Jonas_No: I agree with you on the fact that I think that they need to bring back the Windows XP look. I am no novice to Windows XP or Windows 7, and the Windows 8 Windows Explorer interface is almost the exact same as Windows 7. BRING BACK THE WINDOWS XP INTERFACE!! DO YOU AGREE?

    Thats awesome especially the CMD thing, it was a pain in win7 to always navigate to all programs then rightclick and select Run as Admin.

    In my opinion, the treeview in win7 is much better than XP, Windows XP is dead, so stop whining about it and get used to win7 as its much easier and better.

    Hello. I have an idea that I am hoping hasn't been done already for Windows Explorer in Window 8.

    We are able to change the view of files shown on Windows Explorer, like seeing the photos in your folder before selecting them. I like that option. The same thing is for videos, but it is just a still from the video. This leads me to my idea.

    What if for Videos in Windows Explorer, like when searching for videos in Bing, when you hover over them they play so you don't have to play video after video to find the right one.
