9. A more refined “Aero”.
Windows 7 was a great operating system. I even liked it much more than XP which some people use even today (I don’t know why 🙄 ). With Windows 8 a lot of that was removed especially the Aero visuals. We still don’t get back the Glass transparency from Windows 7 but we do get a few neat features. For instance, we can snap the screen to the side taking half of the desktop while all other Windows will be shown as icons on the other half that can be selected to take the other half or even closed – a great way to manage the desktop.
If you drag the window to any corner, the window will snap to a quarter of the desktop instead of half allowing for even better desktop management and viewing.
