SP1 Joy for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2

My main issue with Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 was the removal of the otherwise simple feature of restoring open folders after a reboot. Currently Windows restores the folders in a random cascaded position forcing you to tidy up your desktop every time you boot up. It appears that through pressure from many users Microsoft have listened. Yay!

SP1, to be released in early 2011, will restore this much missed feature that was present in XP and Server 2003. From the documentation:

“SP1 changes the behavior of the ‘Restore previous folders at logon’ function available in the Folder Options Explorer dialog. Prior to SP1, previous folders would be restored in a cascaded position based on the location of the most recently active folder. That behavior changes in SP1 so that all folders are restored to their previous positions.”

Forget dynamic memory and RemoteFX, this is what I’m missing! :-)
