Bugs in Classic Theme of Windows Vista

FIRST BUG
1. Change the Windows theme to "Windows Classic".
2. Open "System Properties" (sysdm.cpl) and goto "Advanced" tab and click on "Settings" button in "Performance" section.
3. Uncheck the option "Show previews and filters in folders" and apply.
4. Now open My Computer and you'll notice that Menubar is automatically shown in My Computer. I can't understand why Menubar is related to Preview & filters option? OK, no problem. BUT.....
Now click on "Organize -> Layout" and the worst thing will happen. Menubar is unchecked even its showing in My Computer. And the most strange thing is that nothing will happen if you'll enable / disable this option. Try to enable "Menubar" or disable "Menubar", nothing will change and Menubar will always be there.
So IMO, if this option can't do anything then it should be disabled. Whats the use of enabling an option if it can't do anything?
SECOND BUG
1. Change the theme of your Windows Vista to "Windows Classic".
2. Open My Computer and look carefully at the "Back" and "Forward" buttons in Toolbar!
3. Now hover your mouse to "Little Down Arrow" just after the "Forward" button.
What you see?
A. First thing is that the Back & Forward button are a little bit far from background image. They should be placed at 1 or 2 pixels less from left.
B. When we hover the mouse at "Little Down Arrow", the background image is misplaced from its actual position and a little curve is displayed just before the addressbar.
These are very small issues and not very noticeable.
PS: Try it yourself and you'll understand what I'm talking about or just save the images at your computer and look at them one by one.
THIRD BUG
Open Windows Explorer in Windows Classic theme and guess what? The "Up" button will not be visible (it should be there just after the "Forward" button). But if you'll move your mouse at that place, you'll see the tool tip "Recent Pages".
So the button is there but is not visible. A BIG goof-up. And if you look carefully, the buttons "Back" and "Forward" are correctly placed in this condition but as soon as you'll open any drive or anything, they will be misplaced.
FOURTH BUG
1. Make sure you are using "Windows Classic" theme in Vista.
2. Open Windows Media Player.
3. Open any video file.
4. Look carefully at the bottom bar of WMP, you'll see the time duration of the video file but it'll be hardly visible.
5. Now maximize WMP and guess what? You can't see the time duration. WHY???
Its really too annoying. If I'm watching a movie and want to know about time duration, then I can't. I'll have to exit from Full screen mode and then I'll be able to know about time duration.
If you are using Basic or Aero theme, the time duration will be visible in Full Screen mode.

Folder List and Favorite Links in Navigation Pane Bug in Windows Vista

1. Open My Computer and make sure that "Favorite Links" are showing in left side pane (Navigation pane). If its not enabled then you can enable it from "Organize -> Layout -> Navigation pane". 2. Close My Computer.
3. Now open "Windows Explorer" from Start menu.
4. It'll show "Folders List" instead of "Favorite Links" in Navigation pane. Thats cool since its Windows Explorer it should display Folders list.
5. Now close Windows Explorer and again open My Computer.
6. Guess what? The Navigation pane will show "Folders List" in left pane instead of previously selected "Favorite Links".
So the conclusion is this:
If you select "Favorite Links" to be shown in My Computer and open Windows Explorer, it'll overwrite your settings for "Navigation pane" and will force My Computer to show "Folders List".
So Windows Explorer overwrites My Computer's "Navigation pane" settings. How can I save my settings for "Navigation pane" in My Computer?
It seems that in Vista "My Computer" and "Windows Explorer" are no longer different as they were in previous versions of Windows. In XP, My Computer doesnt show "Folders List" in left pane but Windows Explorer shows and in Vista both My Computer and Windows Explorer show "Navigation pane". Thats why the above BUG exists!!!
NOTE:
=====

I noticed one more thing! If you set to show both "Favorite Links" and "Folders List" in "Navigation Pane", then no problem occurs. Both My Computer and Windows Explorer show both things. But if you set only "Favorite Links" to show in My Computer and open Windows Explorer, it'll automatically overwrite your settings for Navigation Pane in My Computer and My Computer will start showing both things...

Bug in Windows Notepad Statusbar

1. Open Notepad and enable "Status Bar" from "View -> Status Bar". If this option is disabled, then first uncheck "Format -> Word Wrap" option and now enable Status Bar again. Actually Notepad doesnt allow to have Status Bar along with Word Wrap feature. You can have one of them enabled at a time. But there is a registry hack, using it you can have both of them at the same time. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now goto:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Notepad
In right-side pane, change value of StatusBar to 1.
2. Now open any existing text file (Yeah, you have to open an already saved file to check this BUG) and put your cursor to any line, you'll see its location in Status Bar.
e.g. we assume that you put the cursor at column 3 of Line 3, then it'll show "Ln 3, Col 3" in Status Bar.
OK, fine then whats the BUG? Now press <Ctrl>+S or Choose "File -> Save" and look at the Status Bar. VOILLA, it'll show "Ln 1, Col 1" irrespective of the actual Line and column Number, that was "Ln 3, Col 3" in our case.
Sometimes you may have to press <Ctrl>+S twice to re-create this BUG.
So the BUG is whenever you save an existing file, Notepad will show "Ln 1, Col 1" in Status Bar and it'll be corrected when you'll move the cursor.

3. Now, your desktop context menu will look nice and minimal and will not take any extra time in loading.
