      Same
      But scrollbars have gotten smaller over time, now necessitating pixel-perfect accuracy to even use.
      I've been making do with scroll wheels, but I think I should get around to looking up how to make them bigger.
      Why are mouse cursors microscopic by default? I always crank it up to size 3 when handling a new machine, starting up my own account on a new work computer, etc.

    probably some old win1.0 behavior that never got changed
    because when you write your own controls, you can capture the mouse and hold it until the user releases the button, no matter where on the screen it is

        the most moronic part is if you want to change settings that matter you need to find a win32 menu
        even though windows 8 onwards hides them under a layer of trash

          a menu with more than 4-8 options makes the normalgays eyes bleed that's why they removed control panel. these days I dont even miss it because thanks to stardock I have access to everything results in my search field and can just auto run applications from there by typing.

        The menu in Word for DOS is called a 'ribbon', wonder if they realise they reinvented that.

      its reverse ntr. my computer-chan leads ntr man on a long drawn out date where she pretends to get ready for the ntr of a life time. only in secret while she's been distracting him I've made off with alll his harem of proprietary software, Then when he finally shows up after I've kracked every single one, I krack windows chan right infront of gates-kun. her serial bus is moving on it's own and she doesn't want telemetry anymore.

        She wants features and to dress in the style of the demure 98-chan, the playful me-chan, and the serious 2k chan.

    It's a feature. Open a long PDF, go page 5. You want to take a peek page 12 WITHOUT LOSING your current position.
    You just use the scrollbar, get down to p12m then, without releasing it, move your cursor left, toward the center of the document.
    Poof, you go back where you were.

    Very fricking useful and thankfully still works in windows 11. Cinnamon needs it.

          I'm kidding, I hate extra mental overhead. I've never used it as a feature and found it annoying like OP, but I'll remember this in the future. Growing up I just thought the object had a range around it, and didn't understand it was meant to do that.

    .net framework and all other .net building packages and tools are garbage as well as a lot of Windows quirks

    in the late 90s early 2000s Microsoft was building this shit at breakneck speed to fiercely beat any potential competition but it meant that a lot of it was built very quickly and even though it "works" it still has poor quirks

    Its long been the standard since its cheaper often to just use Microsoft instead of building your own in house and some things they made initially are hard to rewrite whilst keeping 100% compatibility with the massive catalog of software that was built for Windows

    Some things they built were very exceptional for the time like active directory or terminal services (inb4 Citrix built this, I know) and others were absolute crap (control panel, printer handling, local search)

    Windows explorer is iterated in every new version of Windows and its still fricked up, Windows 10 was close but I think they threw out the existing code base in Windows 11 and built it partially or fully in abstracted web languages and now its utter dogshit again.

    People learn to live with it though because it just werks and if they have to reboot / reimage it now and again then that's just fine for most normal people.

    as with every other annoying thing in windows old people its why just about every programs asks you if you are sure you want to close anymore cause stupid old people will close without saving and then throw a fit at Microsoft support over it

    Setting the value uses onrelease.
    Mouse out of focus triggers a new state event, which updates the gui.
    Gui reads value its binded to, but it was never set with new value. So it "snaps" back.

      To clarify
      Onrelease was never fired because release happened out of focus of the control(scrollbar)
