Re: Punishing the users for choosing windows

It's never this simple with Microsoft.
The more annoying, idiotic and unnecessary a proposed new feature happens to be, the higher the probability that it will make it into production. Because user experience.

I think it should pop up in random places on the screen. Mandatory side-effects: must steal focus, and must be modal.
Also: please fuck up the geometry placement of this window, so that, at random times, only a fraction of it is displayed on screen. Thereby making the OK/Cancel buttons inaccessible. Hitting Enter instead of mouse click on OK/Cancel should be disabled and trigger the annoying Microsoft "Bling" sound.
After 93,581,733 bug reports filed, issue a Microsoft KB entry promising a "fix" in an upcoming update that never materializes. As a temporary workaround, offer a very complicated sequence of Registry editing steps that result in this window being replaced with Microsoft Edge opening a maximized full-screen window, landing on a page offering various life and wellness advice sections, as well as shopping opportunity recommendations based on your likes.
Microsoft wanted feedback. This is my feedback.
