Information:
This thread should be it for now over tweaking & improving the OS.

2. REMOVED!

No Mouse Scroll
3. When trying to scroll with meddle scroll wheel the mouse does not move up or down inside the system. A good example of it not working would be trying to use the mouse scroll feature inside the "ReactOS Applications Manager". (This is a ReactOS BUG as I had the features working before and when I reloaded off another build version is stopped working again in my VM)... Meaning not all nightly builds are keeping all the needed features...

[Title Name]
4. REMOVED!
React update for device installations
5. "ReactOS update" When opening the ReactOS update a software checker detector box with offer options will appear on screen & here is a example below:

Advanced:
(-) Automatically try to detect missing (Drivers/Software).
(-) Install Driver from Specific location.

Download Management
12. (POINT 1) Please fix the download management on ReactOS. As it does not work right when trying to get software from the net correctly. (POINT 2) I would also like to point out it has a very long delay time when trying to save content to hard-drive off the download manager box.

View options:
13. In the "View" options allow end-users to hide the address bar.

Menu Double Click
14. Please make "My Documents" & all it's folders double click-able to quick enter folder areas in the start menu. - Downloads , - My Music , - My Pictures , - My Videos

oldman,
Thanks for pointing that out. I should of read terms & conditions better.
- I've also removed it from the list. *** I still wish ReactOS had something like it though.

Yes, I see what you mean.
This functionality probably just hasn't been implemented yet, I searched around on JIRA and couldn't find an issue that this would be a duplicate of, so I'll suggest that you request this feature on JIRA.

Umm, I'm just a user/tester, if it's to be fixed, either a developer or another knowledgeable community member will need to look into it (I just verified Dave3434's findings) so they can figure out what needs to be done.
However if an issue doesn't get any mention on the bugtracker (JIRA) I doubt that putting it on a tasklist in the forum is as likely to get it noticed (and fixed) as it would be if reported on the bugtracker.

Justincase,
I was only meaning, Thanks for looking into the data base for us to see if the issues has been bright up yet. It does not mean you will fix the problem.

Lets just hope developers will see & get to some of the problems above.
This thread is (NO GOOD) Unless developers take fixing the list to heart. :)

Thanks for all the feedback.
Blue.

Oh, I think a few of them saw it, however there are 1500 open bugs in JIRA so it may take a lot of time to fix everything :)

True

Also True (more now)
While perhaps not all of the Devs read the forums (IDK) it has been evidenced by a number of recent posts (by Devs) that at least some of them do, so it's pretty unlikely that these posts have gone unnoticed.
This being said however, no matter how much attention a forum post gets, it is much easier for such posts (on the forum) to be forgotten about than JIRA issues, thus any actual bugs need to be posted to JIRA.

No matter who or how many people report a bug on the forum, if it isn't reported on JIRA it won't show up when the Devs want to know "Which bug should I work on next?".

justincase,

Thanks for caring so much about where I post my messages & if you feel the posts are being placed in the wrong place you can always take control of what is on this thread and post it in the JIRA yourself & for my thread posts I've already posted them up for the public to see here... This already taken a long amount of time & I don't feel like re-writing everything on a little 5X5 post box even if it would help the project improve... I always have Microsoft windows or Linux to work on atm... So it does not effect me one bit since i just upgrade my PC & hardware each year anyways... as Software does not always cover many issues that come to be as everyone improves so much every year...

Now like i said.. If you want to take control and post each one. ONE BY ONE go ahead and do it!
Sorting each topic out in the JIRA would be a pain.

Updated main body of thread.

- Number (#20)

Have been added in to fill the left over task list!
Date: 5/12/2014
Issue: "3D Text ScreenSaver"

When trying to run preview 3D Text ScreenSaver on ReactOS. It will stop the system from responding & sometimes it will even make you restart the computer to fix the issue. Please remove or fix this issue in the new build(s).

Personal Note: (Anyone can add the issue above into the JIRA for me. Thank you!).
NOTICE: "Build 63248" This problem still has not been fixed. (Showing Its still a issue from release build "ReactOS-0.3.16-REL").

Just like Magic have a desktop app that will show important information about the OS that can be disabled & enabled testing for development reasons. Could be a good way to keep your eye on many peace's of hardware when testing stability. This would be good if it was built into the OS releases.
