comment How can I release the Win-L key combination to the underlying program?
I hadn't tried that until just now. But when I did, the hotkey fired and the system didn't get locked. (I restarted after making the registry change; maybe just logging back in would have sufficed.)

comment How is the location of .ssh determined?
I'm not sure, but I think it might look for .ssh in the directory HOME points to. HOME isn't normally set under Windows, but you can set it manually.

comment How can I release the Win-L key combination to the underlying program?
The same seems to be true in Windows 7. (Actually, it appears that the hotkey runs but Windows also gets locked.)

comment Why does Google Chrome choose randomly between two profile directories?
I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, and deleting the C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Chrome profile altogether. The other profile remained in effect for a week or two, but today I noticed a new Chrome icon on the desktop, and when I launched it, it appeared to be a fresh new profile; looking in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Chrome confirmed this. I guess I will just have to keep copying my good profile over when this happens.

Where do the aliases point? Click on one and hit Cmd-i, and it will tell you. Check a few of them. Do they all point to somewhere in /usr/local?

comment How to properly remap `<del>` to `<esc>` in vim?
Note: noremap does the same work as the combination of nnoremap, vnoremap, and onoremap. Likewise, noremap! does the work of inoremap plus cnoremap; and vnoremap does the work of xnoremap plus snoremap. If you're not listing all of them just to be super-clear about what you're doing, you could combine them into only three map commands.

comment What Windows shortcuts should be blocked on a kiosk-mode PC
Hmm. Maybe it's allowed in my case since my Win+L hotkey extends the normal lock screen functionality (by turning the monitor off)?

comment What Windows shortcuts should be blocked on a kiosk-mode PC
That's odd. I have an AHK script intercepting Win+L and it seems to work.

comment Multiple concurrent styles in Microsoft Word
Steve, that does add to my knowledge, so thanks. But the styles I'm concerned with only involve color and normal/bold/italics; no line/paragraph-related formatting.
