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.

@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.

I haven't noticed before that Microsoft Office applications were ignoring the first click. Great example. Thank you.

@JonW: if it would be just Microsoft... PayPal restricts passwords to 20 characters. My bank website has a password length restriction and can contain only digits. Among the popular websites, most have a small length limit.

comment Why do sites with a single sign-on system redirect to a login screen?
@Kroehre: Ok, reading your comment and your answer, I understand that I misunderstood the original question. For me, it was not about OpenID and similar mechanisms, but about the logon inside the same website, i.e. an ordinary, internal logon.
