comment Why does using two-finger scroll on the Windows 8.1 start menu result in a click on the center of the screen?
Extra information: the good driver was 11.7.85, in spite of there being newer versions, and I had to do the install process twice through the device manager - once on AC and once on battery (super weird).

Does this mean your password is now stored in plaintext in the registry? Hmm.

comment Handbrake output directory to include Title folder
I have exactly the same problem as you - I ended up getting the Handbrake UI to crash because it kept adding multiple copies of the "source" tag until the filename was too long for Windows' directory structure rules.

comment How to disable Acrobat Reader's “Click-Scroll-Feature”?
This "feature" has been driving me bananas for years now and I've somehow never managed to find the option to turn it off until you posted this here. Thank you!

comment Does anyone know why my XP system displays weird login behaviour?
Next time this happens, try pressing your ctrl, alt, and shift keys one at a time (press, hold for a second, and release). Perhaps the state of one of the keys (most likely alt) is 'stuck' and causing you to type keyboard shortcuts instead of letters. Can't say I know how to fix it if this is the problem though...

comment Saitek Cyborg v7 keyboard muting with backspace button?
Have you tried it on a different computer? The keyboard could somehow be defective and sending the 'mute' keycode, in which case bringing it to another computer will show the same problem, or you could have some gummed up keyboard software installed on your PC.

comment How to get ∴ on a keyboard?
This symbol is Unicode +2234, but not all programs accept Unicode input by default. It also gets more complicated because the symbol is not in all fonts. If you check out the Character Map (Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Character Map) you can see that Arial does not contain U+2234 (symbols are sorted by unicode number) but Cambria Math does have it.
