Open Letter from this Developer to Other Developers about Installers

A request from this Developer: Please make your installer’s default installation folder to use the %temp% environment path variable I have configured on my computers.

My system drive (C:) is an SSD disk is reserved for the Windows 10 and Program Files.. and not your installer’s temporary files.

Dear Developers: BUTTONS

Please make the hitbox around your close icons larger than 1 pixel.
And please do not make the X itself the only clickable part!
Make the entire button clickable!

Sigh. It’s like some programmers never actually use the user interface that they design..
