          unless I'm terribly mistaken, up to at least win7 had a GUI disk defrag, so you either never used it or are larping. In fact I'm almost certain it still exists inside win11 somewhere.

            You are the one who is mostly mistaken, Vista got rid of the defrag disk map. Yes, there is a GUI menu to initiate a defragment operation, but if you click it, it just says "Analyzing..." with no other visual feedback until it says "Done." Vista is also when it was made to regularly defrag your disks automatically by default, so you can be a frequent user and never need to open this GUI either.

            not saying you're lying but I have a hard time believing that, as I'd stay watching the little quads change color, and I've barely used vista, mostly xp and 7. It was a long time ago so it could have been win xp, but I'm almost sure it was 7.
            yes I used to start it manually and watch as it ran for some reason.

            after a quick search, what I seem to be remembering could be a third party tool like pic rel, which is not too far fetched considering that, like I said, I was very autistic about defragging the disk

            I can't how many family/friends I had to help by installing classic style start menu lol.
            And yes even for laptops, though it probably depends if it's touchscreen I guess.

            they hated the old-style start menu because they couldn't shove 15 ads in your face with it

            Default Windows 10 start menu has tiles for Candy Crush, Netflix, Solitaire, Minecraft. Links to get them from the Windows app store, mind you, they're not preinstalled. In case you missed it, you can't play Solitaire on Windows out-of-the-box without setting up a Microsoft Account and visiting the app store.

            Why is preinstalled shit on windows or just links to other MS products considered "ads"?
            What the frick is apple, google, samsung or literally any other manufacturer doing when they have their own preinstalled apps or other shit on their devices?

            Or is this a case of ignoring the rest of the industry and acting like it's still 2001 where MS having a browser is considered anti-trust litigation worthy?

            The rest of the industry is, and was, called out as well. Samsung phones having bloatware preinstalled is what drove me to Motorola. I'm not interested in iPhones, but if they're putting links to non-Apple products on a factory-fresh home screen, I'd call them ads too. This is not a new hatred either, having to remove Nero / McAffee / Musicmatch / etc. trial versions from Dell and HP Windows XP prebuilts was a real drag which everyone complained about.

            The BIG difference, though, since I need to spell it out for you: those are OEMs adding in the bloatware. Samsung, LG, Dell, HP, and so on. Android, Chrome OS, iOS, and OS X only have 1st-party programs or links to 1st-party programs. Microsoft (not any PC retailer) put those links to the non-Microsoft programs Netflix and Candy Crush by their owners in exchange for some manner of revenue (and thus, they're advertisements) on the default start menu of every pre-built and user-installed consumer version of Windows 10.

            People complain about bloat but I've never seen anyone talk about "ads" as it pertains to preinstalled 1st/3rd party on phones and what not. Save for kindles/amazon devices which you explicitly get a cheaper device in exchange for lockscreen ads
            Only relating to Windows do I regularly see people complain about ads while pointing even to first party things like dropbox or office
            >only have 1st-party programs or links to 1st-party programs
            Except for corps like samsung with uninstallable gaybook

            It just seems super weird to me as when people talk about ads I assume and I'm sure many other assume it's actual random internet ads like you'd block on your browser with ublock or something, not quick links to other MS shit

        They still hate it, they keep fricking with it for every single windows iteration.

        At this point I'm leaning towards just nuking it and adding a third party taskbar/start combination. They rewrote it again for windows 11 and now it's incompatible with 7 taskbar tweaker, which was the only way I could make it tolerable.

      hdd have discs that go spinny spinny, and a needle to read them like a record player. if your files end up fragmented over different sectors, that hurts performance because the needle has to change position all the time
      defrag just reorganizes those files back into contiguous sections

        It also tried to have frequently used files more to the centre of the disk, since it was faster to get files vs outwards.
        It was also a common trick in console games with textures.

      Files get scattered all over the disk when it writes new information because hard drives are stupid. What no one is also mentioning is this only seems to be a problem with certain drive formats. I'm in my 30's and I still never really understood it myself but apparently formats like NTFS and FAT32 would have this problem. exFAT fixed this so you don't need to defrag all the time but I hear those have problems too. Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.
