comment How can I make cygwin commands a priority over built in windows commands?
Can you even run cygwin commands in PowerShell? I though cygwin had its own shell.

comment Adjust Microphone Volume After Launching Application
If you can find out how to do it in .NET (in C#, say), then you can also do it in PowerShell because you can use .NET in PowerShell very easily. That's just a possible lead you may not have investigated yet.

comment I want to read a value from a text file and compare it with a number
That looks like unix shell script. That won't work in PowerShell. PowerShell has its own syntax.

comment How to adjust .mkv files audio volume level?
@Vitas, it shouldn't affect the sound quality. They are just amplifying a digital signal. Maybe the sound quality was bad in the first place.

comment Windows INSERT key anti-functionality accidentally triggers; how to stop it permanently?
@Ira, no problems, thanks for the upvote :) One thing that SharpKeys won't do, I've just discovered, is it won't disable Shift+NumPad0. I recall that there is a hotkey editor out there somewhere. That might do the trick. But I never hit that key combination accidentally, so it doesn't affect me.
