Hotmail.

Don't know if anyone else has it done to their account but this Focused/Other seperate inboxes are damn annoying. Why the hell would anyone want two inboxes? One is bad enough.

Agree 100%. Hated it. You can turn it off in settings... which I'm sure most sane people will do.

I haven't done that yet as I haven't logged in for a while (my hotmail is usually full of spam and ebay notifications anyway). Agree that it's annoying though - very bad idea.

Worse is the fact that selecting loads of emails then marking them as "read" now unchecks them all...so I have to check them all AGAIN to delete them if I don't want my deleted box showing 100's of unread emails. It didn't used to do this and gave them a bit of a blasting for it in the comments section of a survey email related to the new 'focused' inbox...not that they will even read it, mind.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Another vote for the Hotmail inbox split. Navigating the hotmail account is tedious enough as it is with the amount of junk and spam that appears on a daily basis, but now with this 'focus' option.......it's become incredibly annoying. I'm now off to look at the settings........ :oops:

Now changed the settings to go back to one inbox.

I mean honestly, who thought it would be a great idea to implement.

Unless I'm missing it there is something similar when wanting to delete emails by name and you cannot just tick the whole lot. Like if I want to delete all emails from Retro Gamer I can only select say the first fifteen of twenty and not the whole lot.

My big Android tablet deciding it wants to randomly reboot every few minutes, then not restarting most times. Tried a factory reset, it still does it. Left it this morning in an eternal boot attempt.

Its a few years old now, but since all its used for are browsing filth and watching movies, it was more than adequate. Oh well, Mrs Ant doesn't much like the one she bought a couple of weeks ago, so I guess I'll buy that off her so she can look at a new iPad.

My phone has a problem where it will decide to completely wipe the contents of the MicroSD card every time the battery dies. This is an improvement however on its status before I updated the OS, where it would enter an endless cycle of trying to reboot but not doing so until I had removed both the battery and the card, then only putting the battery back in.

This wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that it's one of those phones that runs an entirely stock version of Android, therefore allowing the installation of apps directly onto external memory. The Google Play store must be wondering why this idiot is having to re-download 30-odd gigs of apps every fortnight.

That Hotmail business sounds terrible, thankful it seems that doesn't bleed through to iPhone, can't remember last time I logged into my hotmail on a PC.

The Hotmail thing is a pain in the hoop.

Sure you can change the settings, but why make such an obviously crappy setting the default.

Even more annoying is when you do a B followed by a ) in Word now it defaults to a fukkin smiley face with sunglasses. Something I have NEVER and WILL NEVER EVER need in work, unlike a B followed by a ) which i need many many times in work due to typing people's National Insurance number.

9 times out of 10 it feels like when MS are trying to be helpful they're actually being incredibly irritating!
