Differences between file open dialog boxes Reactos VS Window

Post by manuel »

Hi:

Reactos is being emulating many features of Windows XP, but the file open dialog boxes look different, much more simple, I think that if Reactos will be the equivalent to XP, but open source, should then update the dialogues with functions for example the sidebar to quickly access places (my documents, my pc, etc), features present in XP, greetings.

ReactOS doesn't emulate something, it is a clone.
the file open dialog comes from wine (comdlg32.dll) and we just take it as is. If wine changes something, we will get it too.

In fact this is MS Word open file dialog, which is a bit different from the system one. Here's how the system one looks:

I've noticed that WINE Mono has one that looks just like XP. So...
I use ReactOS on real hardware. Will you? My Computers: https://www.reactos.org/wiki/PC_ROS_Rigs Go all the way to the bottom.

The whole "looks interesting/nice post" pattern without actual specifics should be a dead giveaway.
