    Hello,
    I have recently received a Windows 7 PC. I've used Macs all my life, so getting used to a Windows system is taking a bit of effort. A few things that I do on the Mac all the time, and I've yet to find an equivalent are:
    1. Dragging a file into a file selector dialog box to navigate there
    For example:
    On a Mac: I have a folder (eg. "Photos") open on the desktop, with a bunch of files in it. I want to import one of these files into an application. I go to the application, do File > Import and the file selector appears. To navigate to the file, I just drag it into the file selector dialog box, and the file selector instantly navigates to the "Photos" folder. I can then choose one of the files from there and import it.
    Is there a way to do this on a Windows system?

    2. Hide current app, without making all the desktop folders vanish
    Why, on Windows 7, when I go to the desktop (either via the unlabelled end chunk of the taskbar or by doing a windowskey-D), do all the open folders suddenly disappear? Obviously the only reason I'd want to "show desktop" is to see what's on it (ie. a load of folders I've opened previously). I'm not interested in seeing my desktop picture (which I've set to a neutral grey anyway). Obviously I want to see the things on my desktop - ie. open folders. Is there a way to fix this bug? It's bonkers! I then have to repeatedly do an alt-tab thing to re-open those windows.

    3. Up arrow/down arrow should go to the start/end
    This is a really simple one that catches me out on Windows all the time. On a Mac, if I've selected a single line of text (a filename for example, but it works system-wide) and press the up arrow key, the cursor goes to the start of the text. The down arrow key takes it to the end. On Windows, up/down seems to do the same as left/right in one line on text.

    4. Compressing files
    On a Mac, if I want to compress a folder/file/bunch of files, I select it/them, right click and choose "compress". That's it. On Windows, there's a bewildering array of "add to zip file", "add to archive", "send to compressed folder" (that doesn't even make sense, and that option just generates an error). I've read the help on using WinZip, but it is just ludicrous - 6 or 7 steps to compress something. There must be an easier way.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
