    Great think - but for non-IT lama's (check "lama" meaning on Czech pages). EVERYBODY has to look out what standard options offers.

    Common Tasks in Folders is a feature, the fade and slide are just obnoxious animations. Shadows you can keep or leave. I suggest running TweakUI and disabling all fade, slide, & animate options. Also the transparent selection rectangle, smooth scrolling, and show window contents while dragging can be turned off without confusing anyone. Right Click on the desktop, Click Properties Click on the |Appearance| tab Click [Effects] Uncheck [ ] Use the following transition effect for menus and tooltips Uncheck [ ] Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts Uncheck [ ] Show window contents while dragging Click [OK] Click [OK]
