    I've already done that. I have a Lock tile and a Shutdown tile on my Start Screen, and a Shutdown shortcut on my taskbar. I've swapped out the Metro IE Tile for the real IE too. There are some Metro Apps that I like but the Metro IE isn't one of them.

    I'd like to see Metro Apps remember what monitor they were last opened on and what screen size they were last used at, and open to those on launch instead of full screen.
    I'd like an option to disable the Start Screen auto arrange so the tiles don't have to be 2 plus 2 etc. Let me arrange them like you do Icons on your Desktop.
    I'd like to be able to span the Metro Start Screen across multiple monitors.
    I'd like to be able to change the Tiles background color.
    Do not automatically create a Homegroup during install, or at least give a yes or no option.
    An actual Shutdown tile would be nice. And a tile for the Desktop version of IE.
    The ability to easily download install media/ISO file without having to jump though hoops or resort to trickery.
    You can change the tile function.

    OK that seems to work. I can remember playing with that setting but it didn't work for what I wanted at the time. I was trying to pin some websites to my Start Screen but they all opened in the Metro IE even with that option checked. Looks like misunderstood what it was for and what it does.

    Oh, and FFS (ex-squeeze the French) dump this STUPID idea of tying Flash in with IE. What an effing DUMB!!!! idea. At least a quarter of my sites don't work properly, and it's a dead cert that it's behind RealPlayer's sudden inability to download most YouTube clips. And I keep getting 'Your Flash needs updating' ALL the time. NOT happy, Jan!!!

    After doing a clean install, the possibility to migrate users/applications/settings from a previous version of Windows. Just like Apple OS X!

    That would be genius!!!!!

    You can already do some of that with the sync feature. If your logged in with a Windows Live ID you can sync your wallpaper, colors, Metro apps and tile layout etc. After a clean install when you log back in with the same live ID those settings can be synced to that PC.

    I mean a real migration of all apps/applications/programs and system/user settings and not only some settings for the metro apps! But it's start!

    Can't be done in Windows when doing a clean install. Especially when going up one OS version. 8 to 8.1 was a kernel change thus its a new OS.

White window frames around every window.
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
