Just an idea for Calmira: What about a description column in the Find
dialog?
Why, you may ask? Well, look at these search results (I was searching
for the string "debug" in my saved text files):

g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\vfat16.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\pchar~12.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\pchar~17.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\neustart.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\kbindex.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\window~1.txt

g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\w31mm_de.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\testtxt3.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\ctdn3d.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\award-~1.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\w31mm_~1.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\w31mm_~2.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\großet~1.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\mbrsic~1.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\sachen~1.txt
g:\prog31\download\radio\texte\nochei~1.txt

Great - now what's "großet~1.txt" about? Certainly the IFA assigned
"LFN" / description describes the contents very well, but I can't see
it...

Another idea: When you right click on an icon window's title bar, a menu
with all the open icon windows pops up. Couldn't an option for opening a
new icon window be added there? Currently this item is only available in
the desktop context menu, which is impractical if you have full-screen
apps.

BTW: Why doesn't the Run dialog accept Calmira's internal commands like
$MinimizePrograms? While we're at $MinimizePrograms: This definitely
belongs into the taskbar's context menu! (Win95 had such an option there
from the very beginning...)
