Courage makes heroes, but trust builds friendship.
Community theme voting:
System Tasks:1. I would like to see what the community can come up with and add colorSchemes into the main ReactOS ISO on install. The ones with the best VOTES will be placed into the next build release. even though ColorScheme is not a big thing its something! & it can move into compaction art work for the OS & put a limit on how much wallpaper the OS will hold like 50 winners over time. (Later on the OS could open a background website for the OS made by the community). Once it gets stable. (This would also help the community design team come together & this might be the start of great things!).
Preformats Tools:Hovering control.
2. When hovering over boxes for a limited time a box should appear & tell you what it does, at this time there is no hovering information in the ReactOS system. This can leave you wondering sometimes on what is the goal of the task its trying to complete...
Name change for the "Explore".
3. Change name to ("File Explore") There also could be improvements to this & offer it more like a ReactOS system editor tool as wall as doing its job as a file explore for the React system that even offers quicker way to get into system edit options like "richedit". So I feel the name should change from "Explore" as it makes you feel its a network browser not a system tool. (NEXT TOPIC) ---> ReactOS Explorer also gives [+] on the Disc (D:) even though no media has been read in the system drive, Is there anyway for the system to index this and remember what has been done?
Menu "Help" place movement.
4. Please move "Help" into the programs as its in a permanent placement on the start menu & taking up start menu room & it could also due with a name change to "React help".
Properties for Display (Pictures).
5. When clicking on the "Browse.." box it should take you right into the Picture folder the system and not into the (C:). Where all the System main files are at & placed! This also should keep the system address of the background in the properties for Display for the desktop wallpaper you've picked unless the wallpaper has been deleted or removed from the systems saved location address than maybe keep it as a temp location until a new one has been picked by the user.
None working applications!
6. When a app has stopped working the system Manager does not bring up what you've opened to kill the tree of software to make the system recover.
ReactOS Multimedia Player.
7. Please have the app forward itself to the music folder! - As it is now. You have no music and you hit play it will take you to system32.
8. When you have a app open like a system app & you click the app under the one you meant to be on it will flash one time, offering you a clue or notice that you have to deal with me first before you can move on.
Command Prompt "Tree" Command.
9. You can not hit tree in the command Prompt offering locations of software! that could mean if you don't know the OS forwards & backwards, you can not work in the command prompt full time. This could be one of the main problems with the OS not being able to move around smooth as its not keeping the OS Ecosystem from working 100% correct. (As this keeps file location). (NEXT TOPIC) ---> When installing & booting up a new ReactOS system. Now, is there anyway to make a full working index system by it logging all the main system index parts. As it can broke off & add extensions later on to the underling index system for full working compatible order?
10. Please make "My Documents" on start menu be double click-able to enter & nothing else needs to be changed other than having a My Documents folder inside it, as its missing in "My Documents"... (Confusing I know)
11. When hovering or clicking on a character it should say how to make it & i'm not sure why there is a help box on the right side of font:
12. Each time you open a interface the screen box will turn blue for a second now, is their anyway to stop the blue flashing from happening as it's buggy on the eyes?
System side information.
13. When looking over files their should be a option to pick to tell you about the software you've click on that ban have a toggle on/off in views.
Properties for Mouse.
14. Add more schemes to the mouse & it does not mean it has to be a large number.
15. Desktop drag-&-Drop does not allow me to move icons around on desktop.
- Community question: VM problem or you experiencing this too?
16. Please move the Temp folder into the ReactOS systems as their is no reason to have it where its at.
17. Question is there a real reason that the following shortCuts are even on the desktop on installation & not set into the start menu? My Network Places | My Documents | Command Prompt |
System Turn off & power Saving:Preformats Tools.
18. As the title says. cleaning tools are not setup at all & could be setup in the OS but would not meet the developers goal at this time frame to its full working order... This should get worked on at lest just to start them off...
19. Please make Energy Saving features more modern. As this is one of key rule that people use allot. (Laptops & other Low-end products).
20. Please make a all in one pop out box for |Power | Sleep | Log Off | Restart | Hibernate |
