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.

Windows - Icons, playing the look-alike game.

Even though they are not even slightly similar in functionality.

Here is another one I just found. In Windows Server 2008 R2, the "Delete folder" icon for "Task Scheduler".

I almost deleted the entire folder full of tasks instead of refreshing! *lol* :lol:

That one, "Delete Folder", is stunningly stupid. Firing offense.

That idiot programmer should be identified by name and ridiculed by the public.
