This only makes Gmail the default mailto handler, not a default mail client.

comment Is there a way to correct wrongly typed password / abort the operation while on password prompt in the console in MINGW32?
May depend on your terminal type, but CTRL-U often does it for me, if I understand your situation.

comment Bypass a licence agreement when mounting a DMG on the command line
Thanks -- this worked well with a multi-page agreement, where a repeated 'y' didn't work.

comment SSH server installation on windows
Make sure you cancel your sshd -d -d -d, and then restart the OpenSSH service. Then check your Windows event logs if it still isn't listening, and report whether any error messages are found there.

comment SSH server installation on windows
and is the service configured to Log On As "Local System"? I can confirm that the setup works on my Win7 machine. Does restarting the service generate any errors? (check your System and Application event logs)

comment SSH server installation on windows
If you check your installed services (e.g. by running services.msc), does the OpenSSH service appear in the list? Is it configured for startup type Automatic?

comment PC version of Google Chrome doesn't recognize “.local” domain name
How about adding the relevant IP address for prosseek.local to your Windows hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts)? Not terribly scalable, but it could serve the needs of development work.

comment Why doesn't redirect work for scp password input?
Your redirected file just goes into the "bit bucket", to nowhere, much as it would with the command echo "Hello" < passwd. scp (or ssh) will ask for password if necessary, but do not take that from stdin. ssh will send stdin to the command on the remote machine; I don't think scp uses stdin at all.
