So this is probably a really small issue to be honest, however I see changes like this all the time, and genuinely have no idea why.
So I realised today that my computer had applied the latest windows updates - usually none too bad. However, while working away, I immediately spot the file manager looks off. The whole bar containing path has grown in height to almost double what it used. This seems to have no option to revert, and has no gain at all for users without a touchscreen.
Why must all software keep making bits of the UI bigger? It’s bad enough seeing what I would describe as button size creep over time (look at windows xp! so much can fit on the screen at once!), but almost worse when things are changed out of proportion; this bar used to be all fitting sizes with the details view for files, now it’s inexplicably (and possible irreversably) larger than everyting else, drawing way too much attention and taking up more space than the same feature used to.
Would appreciate discussion on this and similar issues (and any workarounds) from anyone like-minded. Hoping i’m not the only person really bothered by such small things.
