    Let's see M$ simply release Windows 7 as Windows 11. Two things I suggest they modify.

    1. Remove the libraries

    2. Keep the right-click Menu on the Start Button as we see it in W10.

    Yeah, that's the ticket for PC users. *Party

    NO TILES!

    :)

  2. samsung omnia 7 should be updated and should be able to run android as it is useless without android

    Well, it can't and won't. This is a Windows Phone 7. I'm sorry the operating system disappoints you.

    This is not possible, they are totally different operating systems, and the Omnia was developed to run WP7 and is not compatible with Android. If WP7 does not suit you, you may be better returning the 'phone and swapping it for (say) a Galaxy, which has
    broadly similar hardware and an Android operating system.

    *Huh
    1. Why remove the libraries??
    2. And what's wrong with the tiles in the start menu?? You can simply remove them if you don't want them there..

    There's no other so simple, customizable and flexible system to handle for instance thousands of media files and documents as the Windows Libraries. For me the Libraries is the single most important feature of Windows, I would be totally lost without them. Thank you Microsoft for this remarkable file handling feature.

    The reason I jumped to Windows 8 already in its early beta days, discarding Windows 7, was the the All Apps screen and Start Screen with its tiles which made using my computer in general and apps, programs and files in particular so incredibly easy that I had difficulties to really understand how easy using Windows had become. Windows 10 took it even a step further, bringing this clever system directly to start menu. I thank Microsoft for that, too.

    As is so often the case when reading these "I don't need it" posts, also in this case your post clearly shows that you have not the faintest idea of what Windows libraries are and how they work, that you simply do not understand them.

    Of course I know that not everyone is capable to understand some even the most basic features of Windows. I will try to put this as simple as possible in order to try to get even you to understand: Windows Libraries do not decide where the files are saved, the user does. Libraries just collect the information and show everything in one place.
     
  11. Same here.. if anyone wants to have a "new" win7.. well stick with win7. *Huh
    Jeff Problem is that when extended support is over, you have to move on up. I like Win8, but if you want to stay with 7, you can only do so until January 2020.

    Hi there

    Storage Spaces are a great addition to Windows. If you have a few smaller volumes you can combine these into larger aggregate compound storage spaces and unlike RAID the volumes can be of all different sizes too. These days people often have loads of different size"legacy" HDD's around -- great for making large multi-media libraries etc without having to worry what happens when an individual HDD gets full either.

    You can also use these as Software RAID as well, Great feature by Ms. Introduced in Win 8 but carried on into Win 10. Not available in Win 7 and earlier. IMO much better than Libraries.

    Windows 7 should be Windows 11

    although it doesn't seem to allow me to change the default location of where i store different file type ,it at least is showing that one day there maybe a option to pick another choice .

  14. I'm still trying to understand what people don't understand about Libraries in W-7.

    Libraries don't make one do anything.
    Libraries do give one a easy way to do many things.

    Libraries are great for dummies like me. I can arrange and move things the way I want them. Then find them latter when needed.
    The key to me is I can find things. I don't always remember what I did with what.

    Kari and I are surly not the only two people in the world that like the Library system in W-7.

    just choose "save as" ,and one cant choose where ever they want to put the file .
    windows is only trying to help basic users when it choose to keep them categorised .make sense to me
