(Developers please pay attention) Windows 7 Users, what do you need fixed before support is cut -Preserving Win7 machine

Windows 7 support is coming to an end and thus, Cubase 10.0.x will be the last Windows 7 version of Cubase.

Despite this, I will be using my Win7 machine and Cubase 10.0.x for some time, and will be “time-capsuling” this machine with a fresh OS install, stable plugins, and all my settings and templates. Even after I build a new Windows 10 PC for 10.5, I will continue to use this Win7 computer as a library, archive, compatibility machine, VSTi/sample instrument PC, and studio secondary backup recording machine.

So, what current bugs and problems would you like to see fixed and resolved in your time capsule machine if you have a similar plan as myself?

Please no feature-requests beyond minor tweak suggestions. no key command requests.

Here are mine, in order of importance to me:

Tweak: MediaBay: Retain logical filter user entry
I would leave these on all the time, but if I switch to ‘Attributes’ Filter, for whatever reason, it clears the ‘Logical’ filter back to its default. I’m not sure if this is a bug, but I think it should store/memorize the last used ‘Logical’ filter set up.

There should also be a bypass button per filter next to the ‘-’ delete and ‘+’ add filter buttons.

(this is very important to me to have this machine organized and easy access to what’s needed)
