comment What is a good replacement for the menu bar in a Windows app?
I agree with Michael: don't replace the menus if you don't have to. Drop-down menus do not occupy much space (typically no more than 20 px), are well-known and understood, work with a number of other interfaces (mouses, keyboards, screen readers), and provide a good way of organizing actions to "keep them out of the way until a user needs them."

comment What can I do with my interface to get users to read the directions?
It may be easier to think of how to present this to your users if they (and we) knew what the two steps are. Could you tell us a bit more about it? (Also, it's not a matter of being smart enough, but of wanting to complete the task as soon as possible. How many times have you slammed Next, Next, I Agree, Next, Finish though an installer without reading the instructions?)

comment What objective qualities or elements of a website design can help build trust with users?
I'll recommend Chapter 6 of B.J. Fogg's book "Persuasive Technology", which summarizes a lot of work on what and how interfaces can communicate credibility and trustworthiness to its users. (Amazon link: amzn.to/cmVlWR)

comment How to setup UI for a program to split up the quantities in C#?
I'm not entirely clear on the task this interface is meant to support. So you have some quantity (q, in your example 10) that you want to split up into a certain number of sets (x, in your example 3); these sets need not be of equal size. Right? And you want a means of splitting q x ways using standard Windows UI widgets?

comment When to omit zero from numeric table presentation
I agree: it would depend on whether or not the tabled data is sparse (ie. mostly zero values) or not (ie. only a few zero values). It also would depend on your use case. Perhaps zero values are the most important, and should be highlighted.

comment Labeling an advertisement
I didn't mean to say one should assume users to be computer scientists, only that one should not think of them as idiots (or "lusers"). User-centred design should be done with an understanding and sympathy for users, not with disdain or distance. If you can't respect your users, how can you expect to create something that they will understand and enjoy?

comment Labeling an advertisement
I prefer to think of design as consideration, not condescension. Ultimately, it's the user experience and not the designers' intentions that matter.
