[Change Request] Please change SPACE button behavior in Metro RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • it's simple to repro.

    In your Metro, try to press SPACE for two times. Yes, you remove a ICON.

    If you press SPACE for several times, you will get a blank Start Screen.

  • Woah that's bad. Just keep pressing space and you would clear your start menu.

  • I think you should rename your post to "Pressing space over and over removes icons". Your post is very important and I feel the title isn't getting teh point across! I think this post needs to be seen.

  • Over the decades of my cumputing experience, I've probably heard the key-buffer full tone ringing out at least 100 times.  Yep, somebody left a book or whatever who's edge was pressing a key.  Being the biggest key, Space is a common one of course.

    Trouble is, key-buffer full only starts ringing after keys can no longer be processed.  In this case, I presume that's not until each and every icon has been flushed.

    While Metro isn't for me, this is of game changing importance, so I too recommend you not only try to rename the thread subject, but cross-post it in ALL of the Win8ITPro forums, and it should be made sticky by the moderators, and fix put in place very much sooner rather than later.


    Good catch.
