When I installed windows 8.1, the OS installed many updates after each other. I took almost 20 restart to install all the updates. Why cant all the update be in the same packae?

Allow desktop applications to have actual tile icons. Currently only metro apps can have proper tiles, while desktop applications are stuck with autogenerated ones that look very out of place. (I.e. full custom images, instead of a tiny icon in the center as well as custom colors)

Customized setup. I want to coose between "standard" and "expert" when installing the OS so I can, to a degree, trim the OS according to my needs. I don't want or need aditional drivers, language packages or features I rarely or never use. If you regret excluding a feature or program you can just install it from the disc or download a copy.

if this autodetection isn't possible allow me to globally set copy jobs to queue rather ran run at the same time when they involve the same source or destination This will prevent disk contention and blowing out copy times.

Cortana should understand menu item commands for office, windows, explorer or any app for that matter... Cortana should be adjusting my fonts, adding tables, copying text, opening new windows or new tabs, taking screenshots etc... the possibilities of Cortana doing more are endless...

WindowsLiveMail (part of Windows Essentials) should not be abandonned and continued to be developed.
As for Desktop users, it is one of the few universally usable communication Centers.
Please do not Abandon Support for pop3, IMAP and NNTP newsgroups.,
and when using Outlook.com addresses (calendar and contact Integration) it might be an idea to Switch from the DeltaSync Protocol to EAS.
Please do not put all emphasis into the (touch optimized) mail app; there are so many People around the world relying on many different mail accounts with different protocols, WindowsLiveMail can still be a great reason to use a new Windows Version.

Active desktop support. Like to put a document "behind the glass" (not possible to interact, and for security reasons in a small sandbox) or a given page (if the proper app is available) as part of the desktop. For example a .doc is containing some important information, it is helpful, if the content is loaded to desktop background, every start-up (or widget reload / config button).

Remove the Libraries folders. This is so unnecessary. As a user I don't want precreated and undeletable folders for movies, music etc. If I need a folder for moveis I'd create it myself. Ubuntu and Mac are doing the same mistake.
