Video File Previews by Tom Holmes
In Vista beta builds Explorer uses the first frame of each video as the thumbnail video. Does anyone know if there are any plans to change this to a little further on, on most videos the first frame is a useless black image. Or detect the first frame when something useful is shown, Cheers

Total File Size in Status Bar of Explorer by ankohler
Is there any way to show the total file size of all files in a specific folder? I am not talking about right click - Properties. In XP the status bar always showed the size of the all files in that folders when NO file was selected... I really miss that behaviour...

Suggested checkbox caption change (usability) by Freek Versteijn
Dear Vista team, Looking at the Search window in Vista RC1, I have one suggestion about the caption for the 'Include non-indexed, hidden, and system files (might slow down)' checkbox. From a usability perspective, the last part of the caption can be more confusing than useful. Providing the user with the fact that checking it 'might' slow down the search does not help him/her at all. Simply...

Control Panel Home Is Missing by Daibidh
BillyBob, Did you find a solution? If so, can you point those of us in the same situation in the right direction? I am using Beta2 in a dual boot situation. Unfortunately for me, that means every time I boot to Windows XP, I loose all my restore points. At this point, I can't restore to a point BEFORE this situation occured. Thanks,

What is the file extenstion for Outlook 2007 data files. I suspect it is no longer .pst? I tried to import my data files into Outlook 2007 after re-install of RC1 and Ms Office 2007 and could not see where the files are located. Obi

Stacks dumbed down in RC1 by Stooovie
I don't like how MS continues to dumb Vista down. First they scaled back great deal of Virtual Folders prominence in OS. Now, they simplified Stacks in Explorer, so that their icons do not represent relative volume of its contents, as it did in earlier builds. That way user had an instant idea how many items a stack did contain. Now this functionality is lost for no apparent reason. If...

Save File Dialogs by B Barley
One thing I'm having a lot of problem getting use to is how the location of where the file to be saved is displayed. I guess the whole path thing is the issue in all the folder boxes. When you're browsing it's fine. But when IE pops up a save file dialog it seems a little confusing at first. Perhaps this is just a learning curve now that you don't need to pop up a treeview for the...

Please keep using the "My..." nomenclature for My Documents, My Vi by SquirrelSF
Please keep using the "My..." nomenclature for My Documents, My Videos, My Picuters, etc. It took me awhile to like that, and one I accepted it, started naming subfolders like My Finances, My Scripts, My Work Projects, etc. As I developer, I even got coworkers to have our ISV application's output work files go into My Documents\My EQuIS Work\ folder by default (where EQuIS is the name...

Disable zip file support by Jim Fraas
I have a PAID license for winzip,so I usually just install that. "Rick Rogers" wrote in message ... Hi, If you disable the native ability to read .zip files, then you won't be able to open them at all. If you want to display them as oridinary files, you need to unzip (decompress) them.

Vista has Indexing issues by Spirefm
My explorer ALWAYS crashes if I search images or videos. Of course an automatic report goes off to MS, but I've had nothing back. My reliability monitor has lots of pretty colours as a result.

User folder and C:\Users\User folder by Jan Kucera
Hi. Why are these not same? I have my custom folders in C:\Users\Me\ and they are not listed in the Me folder rooted at the desktop (the same as in the Start menu). In this one they are not only listed but I can't even create new ones. I have Beta2, is it corrected now? Jan
