Live Mesh "Taskbar" in Windows Explorer HORRIBLY ANNOYING! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I love Live Mesh but the useless Taskbar in Windows Explorer is horribly annoying!
    Not only is it absolutely useless, it makes working in explorer so annoying that I am tempted to remove Live Mesh despite loving the service otherwise.
    All the time it resizes the window because the W#$%@ taskbar is there ... then it vanishes again.
    STOP IT!

  • Hi,

    Being able to set default behavior, or even turn off, the mesh bar is one of our most popular customer requests, and I've added your vote to the list.  I'm afraid I'm unable to say if/when the ability to control the mesh bar will be coming in the future, but we have been updating, and will continue to update, Live Mesh in response to all the great feedback that we're receiving from our tech preview customers.  For now we can only ask for your patience as we work to make Live Mesh better.

    Thank you,

  • Could you add my voice to list also. While I don't find it that annoying it would be good to be able to control whether the task bar is shown/hidden.

    Why not just have a sticky button along the top of a live mesh folder that would show/hide the task bar?

  •  You can add my vote, too. Not being able to control the view for that pane is a pain. :-)

  • Hey All,

    The Live Mesh team have moved to a more transparent type of voting - you can now vote on features directly. I've found the following feature request - https://connect.microsoft.com/LiveMesh/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=340476&wa=wsignin1.0 and I've requested that it be reopened for voting (you can already add your vote to it now).
