Is FILE a blindly accepted standard: Yes. UI experts have argued against it, but nobody's going to change something that's been in both Mac and Windows GUIs since, forever. The whole metaphor of a computer working with files and folders kind of requires a File menu. Are the commands in the File menu about the File you are working on? Yes and no. You are ...

The column headers aren't part of the data, therefore it's good if these are visually distinguishable from the cell data. This can be achieved by font style, tile background and alignment. So, using center alignment for your column header but not for your cell content is no violation against best practices, on the contrary.

You could try the label "Also read" or "Also read about" to replace "Other content" since it gives the idea there is something else to read as well with a subliminal message of being some content different from the product information.

As per my above comments, here is a suggested task-based hierarchy: - Product - Descriptions - Ratings & Reviews - List Pages - Non-Product - General Content - Information - News - FAQ

Why k should be used for 1000 and Ki for 1024. A reviewer we will call "User's Buys Tests" has analyzed external storage drives. All along their test, they mention that all drives have some "60 GB of reserved, user unavailable space" (1), exact values listed in a per drive table so that the readers can make the best buy. It turns out that the alleged ...

I assume the ordering food as a service for direct consumption rather than buying ingredients. If this is the case, I think that overall process can be clustered as; Defining the order (selecting meal and delivery hours, extra sauces etc..) Completing the order While user is defining the order, the delivery hour can have influence on the selection of ...

I'd go for a simple colour differentiation. Anything other than white is clearly not a light switch. People generally understand that a Big Red Switch should not be used unless you know what it's for. And this kind of switch is easily purchased.

In his book Don't make me think!, including its 2013 revisited edition, Steve Krug defines Utilities as: Links to important elements of the site that aren’t really part of the content hierarchy. He also offers an example list of them for an eCommerce site which includes News and FAQs. From that perspective, this could be a solution: Utilities ...

[I don't have enough rep to comment] In my personal experience, i prefer to see a word 'More' than 'Other', and that would be my suggestion. Remove the word content-as it is redundant for website(a site itself means some form of content - text/audio/video etc) So you can try either of these: More Links More Links Hope this helps.

Yes it is bad practice. You will limit the user in quickly scanning the menu items, as they have to read the entire label. Try grouping them in one label name, include an extra name you want people to see that before clicking on it (e.g. search) You might consider the following list: - Visitors - Sales - Navigation & search - Settings In case you ...

To me, the labels in both zoom levels of your original example look to small. It's possible that simply having a larger fixed label size will solve the problem. If that isn't adequate, then you will have to do some kind of scaling, whereby the labels increase as you zoom in, but at a less than linear rate. This is do-able, but will be a bit tricky to get ...

What about a range slider? You could use a single pointer for easy, medium and difficult. For programs that can vary, show a split pointer showing the range.

What to do if you feel like there is too many items in the bucket? Split it into two. But, how can you do it for "easy-medium-hard" which are clearly (you think so) distinguished from each other? The answer is: Add more grouping values Switch from easy-medium-hard to another rating system (and try to find a way to make it more clear) For me it seems ...

A five "star" system for difficulty would help people understand the system at a glance due to familiarity of leveled rating systems for other services/activities on the internet. Yelp: Sort by price Amazon: Search by reviews This would give you the opportunity to have not just 'Easy' and 'Hard' but also Medium, and easy-medium, medium-hard. I do ...

I would suggest a layout like this download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups This allows you to specify the level of difficulty (which would be by showing a progress bar) and the generic effort or intensity associated with the exercise by a simple text. I'll update this answer with some visual examples if I get some.

I think you could word it better, to make it clearer what the goals are,(I'm assuming you want people to advance through your system). instead of: easy, medium, hard do: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced To me the words here say enough without any explicit rating system, you will also need to make sure that it's easy to tell which workouts are ...

Changing labels is clearly confusing because as a User I might not remember if i checked or unchecked something or it was just checked by default. Also I don't see controls or toggle buttons as a good fit to solve the problem. Definitely not the way to go. Changing the labels is a creative solution if used properly inside a context that allows such ...

I would recommend you to put your descriptive phrase on a new line, as it changes the logic of your textbox (the user gets confused, as the label suddenly changes). download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups
