comment VLC streaming, setting for Logitech QuickCam at low resolution isn't working
Great answer! I'm very curious why the "*" is the key to making it work. All the other examples I find with Google show "x" as the separator between width and height.

I had the problem in Windows 8, and the temporary solution was to upgrade to 8.1 (I had 20+ G free up!). But the problem crept up again, with the continual patching of 8.1... This is an annoying problem from Windows since XP.

I've read from several users this does not work: bitsum.com/junctionmaster.php#comment-1127491034 "The problem is, msiexec (apparently) ignores the junction, and manually creates C:\Windows\Installer. This 1) removes the junction, and 2) completely deletes the contents of the target directory."

The way to unlink is documented here techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/… Unfortunately, the "Disconnect" link (as shown in Figure B) is not available when I go there in Safe Mode.

@Ramhound Metro-skype allows using a non-microsoft (skype-only) login?

This techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/… won't work because my new account won't be linked to the old (local one), or can it?

@Ramhound I don't see an option to do that. I already tried blogmines.com/blog/2012/12/29/… but I think 8.1 is different, or it's a limitation of Safe Mode (with Networking) it's the only way I can log in. When I swipe right and "Change PC settings" I see no "Users" option. When I do try "Accounts" there's a "sign-in option" but nothing to unlink. There's a link to "More account settings online" but it does nothing.
