Windows Live SkyDrive within Windows Explorer?

Submitted by AlexB on March 6, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

To add or download files from SkyDrive you need to login and add/download files from within a web browser.

You should be able to natively add/download files through Windows Explorer. It would also be good if support for folders was added as well.

Face recognition and fast People tagging in Windows Live Photo Gallery

Submitted by burnblue on March 7, 2009 to Usability

WLPG has People tags and face detection (that sometimes works), but these features do not currently do enough to be useful. Photo Gallery lacks face -recognition- and will not scan your library for you and offer to tag similar faces. This makes it very (more...)

Implement face recognition similar to what is done in Picasa Web albums ( http://www.macworld.com.au/data/e/2/2/135300-pi...ce-recognition-584.jpg (more...)

Remove the extra "window" in the "live preview" in messenger (Windows 7)

Submitted by .Chris on March 6, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Usability

Submitted by eye on March 8, 2009 to Usability

[Messenger] Display Pictures do not save selected size

Submitted by DavidTaraso on March 4, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug

When you set the display size of Display Pictures in a conversation window to Small, the size is not saved. When you close the conversation window, the Display Pictures return to Medium.

Bring back time line view in Windows Movie maker, as an optional view for those who want it.

Submitted by .Chris on March 6, 2009 to Annoyance, Usability

In the new verson of movie maker, you seem to have removed time line view, the most critical part of a "movie making app" (how can you edit a movie with out knowing the exact time frame you are at the moment?)

So to make everyone happy, just add back Time Line view. Have it as a secondary "view" mode, so those who dont want to move to the new view can go back to the old view.

This,may bring movie maker, the most "popular" (more...)

Merge messenger scenes with themes of Live websites.

Submitted by blai_cb on June 8, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance

The default messenger scene is the same image than the default Live theme.
You can change these images but them work differently in msg than in the websites.
While in the web you only have a few predesigned themes, in msg you even can use (more...)

Windows Live Toolbar adds unnecessary search bar by default, no option to remove it.

Submitted by hoopla_punta on March 5, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Usability

I have no grudges against this, I think there are some people that like two search bars, but this takes up a lot of space and looks real cluttered. It could be replaced by some other functionality, like a scrolling "what's new" etc.

Give an option to remove the search bar and disable by default.
