comment Merge two audio channels (stereo) into one (mono) on GSM6.10 using FFMPEG

comment How to make Ctrl+Alt+Del switch directly to Task Manager?
One could argue if you start patching the operating system yourself, you're no longer using "Windows 7". If you start going down that route then it's very easy - just pull the Delete and Esc keys off your keyboard and swap them round.
