I'm thinking "why?" It's pretty pointless making it take up more space as a huge button than a tiny icon in the task bar.

I don't think Windows 7 should have that options, the OS should be solid enough to handle the apps be default the way they were meant to be ....

It isn't the OS' fault. If something requires a compatibility mode to be enabled, it's usually because it was written using undocumented parts of the Windows API, or using things that were deprecated years ago... It's entirely the developers' fault msn_tongue.gif

And don't forget that MS could easily have not put in Compatibility Mode at all... Be thankful that the option exists msn_wink.gif
