I just noticed that when you share a folder in Windows 7 there is no indicator like the hand in windows xp. Why would Microsoft do this?. Sure it was a little thing, but it was a very helpful feature. I don't have many shares so I should be able to keep track. Sure I could just go into the network folder but there should be some indicator of a shared folder if I'm just browsing windows explorer.

I "googled" this a found a thread on technet about it. Microsofts "reasoning" for this is they wanted to "reduce large cognitive loads" with windows 7.

Here is the the thread,

Long live XP

I dread the day I'm forced to change. Vista was HORRIBLE and 7 is horrible if you ask me.

I wish windows had a thing called a well, erm Control panel! Where everything could be set (would kill regedit at least)

The thing would be Fort Knox, so even if Internet explorer died Control panel (short of that sector on the disk failing) would always come up!

Check boxes for everything! :)
