Have you ever found something really badly designed? Something which obscurity of its functions makes it hard to understand its use? Something almost unusable to a point it would drive you mad using it too often? Perhaps, a fool's design? Then you have come to the right place. Post your findings here and help making the world a saner place.

Fool's design.

Office 2013 - Fool Full screen menus, lost at sea.

Menus usually drop down, right? Well, not in Microsoft land anymore. Their handle disappear, they might "close", they might go "back" or perhaps, they might just sit there on full screen, laughing at you, lost at sea.

Clicking on "FILE"-menu makes everything disappear. You get stuck in a full screen, no man's land, guessing your way out of it.

This seems appropriate. The SS Microsoft sailing full speed ahead and ignoring all our warnings ...

Speaking of full screen... lookt at this calculator picture from the new build of Windows 8.1 update 1 leaked screenshots. Imagine that hideous beast on a 24" or 27" monitor.

What a bunch of morons... but hey, it has a close button! :crazy:
