    Little things mean a lot to some. When looking for a new car people get excited about the interior and exterior changes and with the new gadgets (accessories). Fixing issue are very important but little changes, color angles etc. is what makes it look and feel fresh, exciting and sellable.

    The silliness is not about able or not able to multi-task.
    It's about who gives a flying leap if the icon has light blue or darker blue file holder ?
    That is the stupid waste of time which can be better used to fix bugs.
    Do you really think there's one person or a team of multiple people who do both, design and engineering? :/ It's normally different department and the people behind design changes, new icons and so on are not in charge of bug fixing, developing new features etc.

    someone must have been paid a lot of money to 'redesign' that rubbish, not impressed.

    From the looks of some of the icon designs I think they are letting their children design them.

    Hi there

    Thanks for info - but I'd much rather a nice cleaner interface with file explorer - the old interface has been around that it seems old even to my Grandad !!.

    I believe in the old Air Force they'd say it's been around since "Pontius was a Pilot (Pilate)". !!

    I prefer this type of clean uncluttered interface (this is Dolphin --the KDE file explorer in Linux). Has many settings but I prefer basic list and to be able to split in groups. I know there are 3rd party ones available for Windows - but here I'm just talking about the "Basic" stuff included with the OS.

    You can also have multi displays in a single window etc etc -- but YMMV - I prefer a single clean uncluttered display.

    Attachment 82058

    There's also a built in file comparison and directory comparison (compare on names, dates, file size etc etc) - more useful than you might think - especially when moving / copying files between different HDD's etc.

    For those wanting an "Icon making" program particularly @Cliff S and @BunnyJ

    Last free version of icofx (works fine on W10) before it went (like a lot are doing these days) pay :

    scroll down the list - it's about half way and select ICOFX.

    Last Freeware version: DiskDigger, Amic Email Backup, Mystic Thumbs, IcoFX, phpDesigner, Xinorbis

    Excellent icon making program.

    Cheers
    jimbo
    or you can have the British Army anacronism "KISS" - Keep it simple, Stupid!!

    I have not heard that Pontius one for a long time!!

    To make your own File Explorer icon,install GIMP and then Google iconify2_1.scm, download it and place it in C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\scripts. Then either download a 256x256 pixel .png or create your own, and then choose ScriptFu>>Utils>>Iconify, then save as Name.ico. Done, you now have your icon.

    Thanks for the Info. Cliff
