That's why I clicked on the little "X"!

YES I want to empty the fucking trash. That's why I clicked on the "empty trash" button!

Not every thing I do is a mistake. In fact, only a very small number of things I do daily are mistakes. I resent your assumption that everything I do is a mistake.

Fuck you and your constant confirming every god damn thing I do on the fucking computer!

That is all.

Sound like you need to give Linux a try.

Especially in new email windows where I haven't even typed anything, yet.

Except the first time it happens because you accidentally clicked the X and didn't get asked if you really wanted to do that. Then your rant becomes 'why didn't they make sure I really wanted to nuke Switzerland???'

Of course I wanted to nuke Switzerland! With enemies you know where they stand, but with Neutrals, who knows? It sickens me!

Closing the window isn't much of a risk. Emptying the trash could be problematic.

I've always wondered if that wasn't a trigger for some evil thing attacking my computer.
I respond with Alt F4.

When I'm on my computer, I open everything in a new window. Just a quirk of mine.

When I'm on my kindle, I open everything in a new tab, because the screen is smaller.

So when I go to close a window on my kindle, I appreciate the reminder that I'm also closing 14 tabs and the question, do you really want to do that? Usually I don't.

This is useful for people who lose track of whether they're on their computer, tablet, or phone. I am one of those.

I can't think of a tabbed interface that doesn't have an option to warn/not warn when closing multiple tabs at once.

What does Alt F4 do?

My first job as a Unix programmer was creating "Are you sure y/n" loops around certain rather volatile instructions. Might just possibly have saved some grief.

It gets embarrassing when I try to click on the little X when someone's talking to me in person.Since you said that, I can confess that sometimes when I'm writing something out by hand and I pause in the middle of the word, I half expect autotext to fill in the rest of the word for me. Yeah, on the paper. I'm not making this up.

Well, I don't get a warning when I close Firefox (running on Linux), but when I start it up again all the tabs are back anyway so it doesn't matter. I accidentally close the wrong tab occasionally both in Firefox on my desktop and in Safari on my iPad, but undoing that is easy enough.

It seems like your computer has rebooted itself after an abnormal shutdown. For your convenience, may I interest you in opening like every website that you've visited in the past 10 years?

If I don't make it, tell my wife, "hello."

A few years ago I helped a friend try to find her lost dog (unsuccessfully, sadly). We were so fraught that when I finally came home to take a break, I had a strong compulsion to pull up Google Maps satellite view and try to find him that way. :smack:

My Windows pet peeve is the crappy handling of double-monitor configurations when you have a docked laptop. Double monitors have been in use for what, ten years now? So why do I still have to move and resize all my open windows every time I undock or re-dock the stinking computer? It KNOWS whether it's got two monitors or just the laptop screen. I should never undock and then open the laptop in a meeting room to find windows are still on the second monitor (i.e. off the screen where I can't even reach them to drag them over). The fact that it works most of the time and only does this idiocy on occasion tells me that it CAN work. It's just buggy for some reason.

It should also "remember" the window sizes and put them back when I dock and go back to the double monitors. This is buggy too, as evidenced by the way it resizes the window back to small laptop size after I have manually resized the window and then dragged it from the first monitor to the second one. (As in: dock, resize window on monitor one, drag window over to monitor two and it "snaps" back to the small size. :mad:)

This is me. If Switzerland gets nuked and we're still around tell them to come for me. I need to be asked twice if I really want to close. At least once a day I close outlook instead of the email I decided not to send.

A thousand times, this.

Why is this even a thing? When I get back to the office my monitors are always swapped and the resolution is back to"too small." This is Windows 10 with a brand new laptop and they still haven't figured that shit out?

This is me. If Switzerland gets nuked and we're still around tell them to come for me.

Not that I don't sympathise with this rant (seriously, how hard would it be to program something that only asks for confirmation of really important things, important being defined differently in different situations? :p) but if you give Switzerland enough warning of being nuked, they'll probably be more okay than most other countries:

I work in an IT Helpdesk.

Not one single day passes without us getting a call that someone has accidentally deleted a critical document that they spent hours on and never saved, deleted a document critical to the business, or deleted an entire folder that multiple people use.

The obvious problem is not that it asks you if you are sure you want to delete, it's that people are NOT sure and delete it anyway.

I want these people sterilized.

I dislike those "are you sure" prompts too.

In any application code where I provided such a popup dialog, I always tried to include a little checkbox that said "never show this again"

That was coupled with a help-menu option to reset the warnings.
