We have 30" Lenovo monitors here at work. They are 2560x1600 resolution. All but one of my co-workers insists on working full screen. The app takes up the whole screen, but the content is this little column down the middle of the full screen window.
They ask me for help with something... I can't find ANYTHING on their desktop because I can see only one window at a time in a massive stack of maximized applications. I resize them while working at their desk to manageable sizes so you can see contents of one app and use that info in another (eg look up something in a browser and enter data in a Word document).
As soon as I step away.. BAM.. everything back to full screen and then they can't find anything any more... they spend half the day trying to find information in the pile of maximized windows instead of just having them open side by side.
The really funny thing is when they stop by my desk to help me on something... first thing they do.. maximize EVERYTHING. IT's like there's a full on mental block and they can't use a computer without maximizing everything.
Maximizing makes sense on a low resolution display... like a laptop 1366x768 display. There you have limited space to show info... but on a 30' display at 2560x1660 ?? it's just baffling why they do this.
Maybe I'm missing something?
If you get a chance, check out the band... they are really good, and put on an excellent live show.
This morning, Windows decided to set random files on my computer to "Read Only". Some of those files belonged to Outlook... and chaos ensued. Outlook gets VERY cranky when bits of it are Read Only.
After almost an hour I sorted it out... launching Outlook, tracking down the seemingly random file, resetting it to writeable, restarting Outlook.. rinse, repeat.
I have no idea why files were set to Read Only.. it was just some random files scattered across several directories. I wonder how many more I will discover today.
I've learned that this is just how Windows seems to work.. like when Word randomly decides that the document you're working on, and have been regularly saving (local or network drive) is suddenly Read Only and can no longer be saved. Baffles me that this is "normal". I've been spoiled by Linux :-P
Today's new "feature" happens in PowerPoint. When I scroll in a presentation, the scroll bar on the right hand side of the PowerPoint window... shakes. It bounces with each page change. It's hard to describe, but it's jittering and shaking as I change pages in the slide deck.
Is it a show stopper? Nope, not at all, but it's annoying and distracting :-P
