Windows XP Is Pissing Me Off

Mon Oct 18, 2004 8:41 am

I have a couple of problems with windows XP. I had 2000 for 3 years. I reformatted my computer and decided to go XP. However, some stuff about it is annoying and I don't know how to change it. First of all, I have several folders where I can't arrange stuff by date but I really need to. How can I do that? Second, whenever I open stuff in a new window in Internet explorer it opens it in a little 1x1 inch window that I must maximize before I view. This really annoys me. How can I make it open a full maximized new window? Thanks

Well, for the first thing right click, and then choose arrange by > modified. And for IE, download this program http://www.jiisoft.com/iemaximizer/ or just switch to this browser http://www.avantbrowser.com/ Also, expect a "switch to Mac" post from Klaus shortly.

This is an easy fix.

When the small box pops up, stretch it using your mouse. Once it's the size you want it, then maximize it by clicking the "square" on the top right.

I've tried the right click-arrange by but modified isnt an option. In other folders it is but I mostly dont need it there I need it really bad in this one folder.

DON'T GO LINUX!!!!

I tried it. It's a pain in the ass. The Live CDs are ok, but they're just that CDs!

Mandrake's RPM based system (and all RPM based systems) means you have to keep updating your libraries everytime you want to install a new program, and watch out, because by doing so you might disable another program which needed those old libraries. Slackware is a pain in the ass to configure, and if you're computer is for home or business, and your business isn't computer configurations, and you're not a computer geek... stick to windows. I would try other distribtions, but i'm don't have the time to be messing around... I've watsed enough time.

Linux may be great, but why pain yourself through all that I've gone through since July. You're gonna have to keep Windows around anyway just to run the monopolized windows based programs.

I was once a believer in the linux revolution. Today, I say:

WINDOWS FOREVER!

or MAC, w/e.

For some inexplicable reason, the majority of the people seem to love it when they´re suffering. Strange.  Wink/being sarcastic
