Windows 7 Issues
I personally don't like Win 7 b/c I like the way the taskbars & quick menu is set up on XP & Win 7 doesn't offer that. 3 people have tried to get it to come close & it just doesn't. It's nuts.
Now MS told me a few months ago that they are going to be coming out with the classic skin that will solve that problem, but I'm not sure if that's come out yet. I'd have to ask them.
Anyway, that's not why I'm writing.
I only have Win 7 on my laptop which I only use for traveling or personal things, so I haven't learned the ins & outs of it much yet.
1. Recently Win 7 has been rebooting on its own way too much. I have no idea how to stop if from updating without my permission, but now after I've unplugged the laptop & I plug it back in hours later, it seems to be rebooting instead of just going back to all the windows that were open there before.
I don't understand what is going on. It never did that before.
While that may be healthy for the computer, this means I have to reopen every window to where it was before all over again & I don't like that.
2. The 2nd issue is that whenever I reboot my XP, if I don't close down all these computer windows with folders in them like "notes" on D drive, Pics on E drive, etc. when it reboots, it brings all those windows back up again so I don't have to go searching for them.
With Win 7 it doesn't do that & it's annoying.
3. Lastly, recently Fx has been causing problems. Normally it remembers what I've typed into a field on a certain site. Now sometimes it remembers it & other times it's just wiped it out of the memory.
4. One more thing. TB doesn't look the same on my laptop as it does on XP even though it's exactly the same version on both computer.
Does the look change just b/c I'm on Win 7?
If one or more people can help with these issues, it would be much appreciated.
