comment Do non-technical/non-web savvy users understand the concept of tags?
@icc97: my point is that "many people have difficulty thinking in terms of hierarchical data structures" and "The human brain works by summarizing the objects and incorporating them into some hierarchy." is somehow contradictory.

@johnfound: "Unfortunately, hierarchical trees are one of the most inappropriately used controls in the toolbox. They can be highly problematic for users; many people have difficulty thinking in terms of hierarchical data structures.", About Face 3, The Essentials of Interaction Design, Alan Cooper, Robert Reimann and David Cronin, ISBN 978-0-470-08411-3, p. 457.

comment Do non-technical/non-web savvy users understand the concept of tags?
@Nadyne Richmond: agreed, and the fact that some apps use the term categories when it's actually tags makes things more difficult then they are. Office website tells that "A category is a keyword or phrase that [...]": that's clearly a tag. In the same way, several French websites I know use the term categories when the exact term would be tags.

comment Industry standard for button captions that use a Function Key as the keyboard shortcut
@Ben Brocka: true; discoverability problem seems to cover more and more Microsoft's products. Just look how important this problem is in Windows 8 (and it's not limited to shortcuts).

@Laoujin: The poster of the original question already knows that and already uses mnemonics for Alt-type shortcuts.

comment Industry standard for button captions that use a Function Key as the keyboard shortcut
@StuperUser: in Visual Studio? With my configuration, it auto-formats the source code. But this may not be the case for other people, given that the configuration depends of what was chosen when originally installing VS, and that every shortcut may be changed later.

comment Wouldn't it be more efficient to disable elements in inactive windows?
I haven't noticed before that Microsoft Office applications were ignoring the first click. Great example. Thank you.
