I wanted to share 2 tricks I found on the web that are solving 2 pesky Windows behaviors.
First, once you spend some precious time organizing properly your icons on the desktop, Windows puts a point in completely messing up your organization as soon as you change the screen resolution or as you plug/unplug a second screen. There is an effective workaround to this, find it here.
Second, Windows Vista explorer just assumes too often that folders contains pictures and video. Scott Hansleman proposed a nice workaround to this here.
