Would you like the Start screen to remember your position?

    Does anyone else wish that the Start Screen maintained your position? I've got a lot of stuff in mine and if I'm scrolled all the way to the right to launch something and then I hit the windows key to launch something else that I know is on the right side of my Start Screen, I wish it had kept my position.

    not what your looking for but i keep my stuff grouped together and during the day when working from my home office i pull the groups- work, news etc whatever i plan on using and drag themn to the left. At the end of the day i drag them back and the apps i use in the eve now takes their place. I find it works for me. Your initial quest? would help out accept when you actually dont want to keep your position..

    close one door - it opens another...:wink:

    Having a toggle for the behavior would be nice. I would prefer MS focusing on folders first though :)

    Hey you know what might solve this problem?

    A Start Button!

    Go figure.

    How exactly? A Start button sends you back to the top of the file tree every time you open it and you have to drill down each time :p

    What were the odds of this post not receiving a comment like that... only annoyed I did not get there first!

    Anyone seen a Windows Blue Count Down Metro app with a live tile yet?

    Hey guy, give it up already. Yes, we all know you're pro-start button guy. Accept the Start screen or just stick to Windows 7.

    Or spend Five Buck$ and solve all known inter-galactic problems. (Even rumored to cure cancer. Or maybe that was dandruff.)
