Problems navigating folders in Live Desktop RRS feed

  • Really nice way to illustrate your problem! Maybe you could do a brief overview on how to do a similar screencast and the powers that be here could make it a sticky. It's a great way to let people see exactly what the problem you're describing is.

  • Hey GuyWithDogs (not your real name I presume :) ),

    Its pretty simple really, install Camtasia (www.camtasia.com) and from there its pretty self-explanatory. You just need some decent screen capture software and Camtasia is generally regarded as the best.

    Take a look at this video I've done showing Live Desktop: http://jamiethomson.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!550F681DAD532637!5085.entry

    There's some peculiar navigation in Live Desktop:

    • Quite often when I expand or select a folder in the navigation pane then I don't get the expected outcome and the navigation pane kind of "resets" itself
    • The default ordering in the folders isn't based on alphabetic name or last modified time. Notive when I go into a folder called "My weblog posts" all of the items are listed in what seems to be alphabetic order, except that they start at 'L'

    Any comments?

    cheers

    Hi Jamie,

    I'm afraid I'm unable to provide any comments other than that both of the issues you highlight are things we're still working on improving.  We have received a lot of feedback on the sorting of files and folders issue especially.  You can be sure that we'll let everyone know when we've resolved that one. :)

    Thanks for all your feedback!

    Ben.
