Windows Ah yes, Windows Explorer. One of the oldest parts of Windows, and yet, it's far from perfect. It's hated less than, say, the Finder (but that's no achievement), but most geeks I know aren't particularly fond of it either. For Windows 8, Microsoft is going to make the biggest change ever to Explorer's interface: it's getting the ribbon treatment.

Having to use CTRL/F1 might be fine for Right Handed people. For us lefties (who use the mouse with our left hand) this is a frigging PITA.

So for 10% of the population they have suddenly made it a lot harder to use.

Don't go on about 'you can change this, change that etc'.
It is bad enough trying to use someone else's PC/Laptop. If I went around changing the function keys will nilly the owner of that PC would be rightly peed off.

Don't these idiots who propose this sort of mess ever stop to think about us lefties? Do they heck.


Instead of ctrl+F1, you can also double-click one of the tabs to hide the ribbon.
