on old XP there used to be the button icon in the task bar to "show desk top"
in WIN 7 this tiny thing is now all the way to the right and very small..is there anyway to move it or make it bigger..would be nice if i could make it act like XP.
i remember when XP came out it had a function to use " Classic windows "
i wish WIN 7 had a "Classic XP " mode..

any suggestions ?

if you right click on computer, click properties, and look through stuff till you find performance stuff, then turn all of the options off, it puts the gui into a fallback mode more or less that is identical to your classic windows mode. Then right click on the start button and change it to classic, that should give you your windows 98 look.

As for the crappy layout of win7, look up how to make win7 look like vista, then after fallback/classic mode is enabled, it'll look and act like the old windows.
