Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

I NEVER maximise a window. It's so utterly pointless for 99% of the applications out there - all you gain is extra white space.

I bought my large LCD to be able to see multiple windows at once - not to see the same content but with added useless whitespace.


For huge screens, I agree. I was commenting more on optimum window size - good width & position, maximum vertical space for windows I have to scroll. I'd rather not scroll unnecessarily if I can make the window big enough so that I don't have to.
