    11Thanks for the quick response. Here are some examples.  
    22 
    3 The Hide/Show Description button in the Create Virtual Machine wizard makes the UI more complex. Unfortunately, the button even remembers the last option pressed, making the interface even less predictable.

I think it would be better to have only one interface that combines the "beginner" and "expert" mode. The difference between the two is only additional text. The text could also be shown when moving the cursor to the appropriate fields.

    5 Another example is the Select startup-disk dialog, which is only shown once. Again, making the interface unpredictable, for instance, the user already start the machine, by accident.

    7 I'm not asking for removing the "Don't show it again" checkboxes, but I think it would be nice if it changed an application preference, rather than disappear. Maybe the ticket 11473 could be included.

    9 I question whether or not the VirtualBox GUI really needs dynamic aspects, which are not commonly used, or at least allow the configuration of the UI using application preferences to be predictable. Creating instructions using the current UI is difficult. I'm not surprised some of it is not mentioned in the current documentation.

Creating any instructions using the current UI is difficult and requires additional explaining. Some of the UI features are also not documented.
