Since using Vista I've had a hell of a time just trying to get basic things working as they did in XP.
Firstly, I just want ALL my explorer directory detail windows to show Name, Size, and Date. But so many of them show different fields specific to digital photos. How do I force ALL directories to show the basics ONLY?
Secondly, explorer has a toolbar underneath the menu! This is a waste of real estate. How can I remove it? I can't right click and say "f%$# off" :(
Thirdly, searches. WTF?? I want to find a file named *.txt in all subdirectories. But I've chosen not to index them. I can't type *.txt into the "search" window, that doesn't work.
Lastly, can someone provide a Microsoft engineer I can solidly kick? My laptop didn't come with a repair disk, just a reformat-and-reimage disk. WTF! And when I had a major computer virus I had to use Linux to boot because Microsoft don't make boot disks any more.
Okay grumbles aside, anyone can help me with the three issues above?
