    Hey guys. I was wondering what would YOU change, add or remove from the Wii U Menu. And even apply patches * (yes this have just came in my mind yet)

    Let say we could completely rework it.

    My changes :
    • Three pages on home menu instead of 5.
    • Folder colors : user select freely its color
    • A cursor movement-fading effect like on Miiverse when usong TV display.
    • Folder pages are expandable up to 10pages with some Community award points*
    Add :
    • Wii remote & Wii Remote plus + Wii U Pro controller full CURSOR support on gamepad (talking about the handshaped cursor)
    • Notification pop-up when a download is finished or have been started.
    Remove :
    • Online requirement for accessing home menu via user selection.
    • Maximum folder limit
    *Community award points would be obtained by logging every week at least 3 times per week for 1 point.

    *Point to expand "+1" page would be 2 points.

    *An amount of 5 points would be given to the user to have completed a game (achievements and story completion).

    Custom menu themes. Seriously, the default menu is so boring.

    Hm.. Idea storm, I like it.
    Change:
    • Replace Health & Safety with Social Media app [Twitter, Facebook etc.]
    • Wii U menu animations
    Add:
    • Custom Themes [Neon, Black something that wouldn't hurt my eyes at night.]
    • Custom 'Select User' screen
    • Expandable Wii U Menu size [Add page, remove page, change effect just like Android Apex launcher]
    • Expandable Folder size
    • Ability to change game icon's straight fron Wii U menu
    • More folder colors, something like RGB slider, HEX code...
    • 'Camera' mode, in other words, taking screenshot of your Wii U apps & menu from Wii U itself. [Saved to memory for a short time and on SDCard for forever]
    • Custom app which can be used to create custom achievements & monitor achievement progress.
    Remove:
    • Miiverse
    • Maximum game limit
    • Maximum folder limit
    • SSL Certificate checks

    Let say I'd like to ENABLE or DISABLE Miiverse instead of removing it fully.

    Before anything is added/removed it would help to have a general optimisation of the whole os, compared to the switch (And even a Wii) the startup is too slow

    Too slow? My damn PC boots for 2 minutes (Mostly because of Lollipop dual-boot) and Wii U takes like what? 30 seconds?

    To be honest, I'd like to be able to change the menu layout.

    Gambia, The
    Remove Miiverse? Seriously?
    I find miiverse much better than facebook etc.
    Can't imagine posting game pictures on facebook... (next to politics, food, etc)

    I agree with most things the creator of the thread mentioned.

    Dumb. Menu stuff shouldn't require jumping through hoops

    I would kill it and replace with a text based menu.

    Yah! A screenshot mode would be great! ...I think it could work if the miiverse's screenshot fonction would point to a 'fake miiverse post' on the sd card..

    Custom themes are a must! Was getting sick of that bright white menu! At night, when the wiiU menu is open, it brighten the place like car spotlights..

    Custom Themes (that said, I rarely look at the Wii U menu, just going straight to Mocha (I'm using the Web hack, and loading the games I want)...

    A notification if the Wii U sees the removable hard drive or not. I had a bit of trouble with an adapter that refused to work, and the only indication was the extra games on my menu.

    Screenshots saved to the SD card.

    No miiverse. Why do I need social media on my gaming system? Get out.

    Removal of the funny noises the Miis make when idle. Seriously, why? I can't leave my Wii U while I do something else without it sounding like the Blair Witch is haunting my ass...
