Appearance and Personalization[edit | edit source]

  • When switching between Aero themes, the "tada" sound effect will get cut off.
  • The icons for Windows Classic and High Contrast themes don't display properly.
  • The Windows Classic theme uses thicker borders by default.

Places bar[edit | edit source]

The places bar of the legacy Common File Dialog from Windows 2000 and Windows XP, which was originally introduced in Windows 95 without the bar, appears to be disabled by default, but the state of the NoPlacesBar DWORD in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Comdlg32 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Comdlg32 or the "Hide the common dialog places bar" group policy in either User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer > Common Open File Dialog or Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer > Common Open File Dialog has not yet been verified. The Group Policy description mentions old WordPad as an example.
