How can hiding menu items be a good thing?

Filed under: Rants/Musings — cangione @ 8:40 pm

I have long cursed the day that Microsoft introduced the concept of infrequently used menu items which they hide for you…. unless you request all the menu items by another mouse click. Like I might not want the REDO function. Supposedly this makes the menu interface "cleaner". To any advanced user this is the most annoying freakin invention ever! To make it even worse, the Microsoft interface experts provide no way (that I know of) to turn the "feature" off!

I will be curious to see if this "improvement" was kept in Vista.
