GUI: Virtual machine window Help->About

Postby Technologov » 2. Apr 2015, 01:58

in Virtual Machine window, Help->About must be last option.

In this version you pretty much killed Windows UI standard, by putting "preferences" in last place.
Please fix.

i.e. Help->last option is now "preferences". Should be "About".

Second that. I would go farther and put a Tools or whatever you would like to name it menu in. Candidates in my opinion for it would be: Install Guest Additions, Keyboard Settings, Reset All Warnings, Network Operations Manager and Preferences. Maybe Shared Clipboard and Drag n Drop too.

Yes, I agree. We are discussing where to move most of it (especially Preferences), Tools or File menu so far..

That one is fixed the way we decided proper for now. Unwanted actions moved to File menu.
I know there are plenty of proposal about VM menus/actions (order/content).
Will be discussed/addressed step-by-step later.
