RantWin10 Strikes again: More Bad (new) UI/UX Pin
raddevus15-Oct-18 5:53

Most of the new UI/UX is terrible.
The only defense of new UI by the new UI designers is: "You are old and you don't understand how great this is." Whatevs!!

Here's the latest example from Win10.
I wanted to speed up my mouse speed - make cursor move more for smaller amount of mouse movement.

I went to Settings in Win10 and searched for "mouse".
It suggested mouse settings. <BeginDrippingSarcasm> These are the new Win10 mouse settings with the helpful new user interface. Oh wow! </BeginDrippingSarcasm>
https://i.stack.imgur.com/V7mwk.png[^]

They are bigger on screen, and they have nifty things like slider and switches, but there are only 4 visible choices.

Terrible UX (User Experience is what you remember not the User Interface). It's like that old saying,
Quote:
"People don't remember what you said, they remember how you made them feel."


UX is :
Quote:
"People don't remember what your User Interface does, they remember how they felt using it."


Search for Mouse Speed
So there is no choice on the Mouse Settings nifty new UI to change the mouse speed.
I search the "Find a setting"...

Look what pops up!!!

The Old Stuff Is Actually Better
The very well designed and thoroughly tested (over 20 years of the same thing) original mouse settings dialog with nice tabs and very nice text explaining what everything is and...and...and...

THE POINT ====> It is nice and compact and easy to use.

The Additional Problem
The other problem is that because win10 doesn't even wrap up this original functionality you have to LEARN TWO UIs now.

Imagine if you are new to computers and you are looking for mouse speed.
Now you have to look through the nifty new UI and then eventually land on the old UI anyways.

Total garbage!! I'm trying to be subtle but can you tell how I feel about it? Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh:
