Here’s a fun little bug I stumbled across in Windows 7: It appears that the back button in the control panel does not properly update the quick navigation links on the left-hand side bar.
- Open Control Panel.
- Click on Appearance and Personalization.
- Click on Preview, delete, or show and hide fonts (under Fonts).
- Click the Back button (far upper left).
- Click on Network and Internet in the left-hand side bar.
Here’s a video of the bug in operation. This is using the fancy new HTML 5 video tag, so if you can’t see it, here’s a lame Flash version instead.
Interestingly, I’ve never before encountered a bug this obvious in Windows. Normally bugs in Windows are erratic and impossible to reproduce on demand, but this one happens every time, and has been confirmed to occur on at least one other not-owned-by-me Windows 7 install.
