comment How can I make cleartype change subpixel layout when I rotate my tablet?
@gronostaj: Not easily, but I can verify with the magnifier that the rendering is identical in all four orientations. I'd expect the red and blue fringes to swap sides upon a 180 degree rotation - they do not.

This is a property of your shell (ie bash, tcsh, or zsh), not osx

This is particularly maddening when the layout switched from QWERTY to dvorak mid-sentence...

comment Triangular box character used in tmux config
@RedGrittyBrick It doesn't. There's a solid background behind the character, which makes it appear full height. Look closely - you can see the sharp corners where the character stops short of the background.

comment What value between 0 px and 227 px will make this dialog go away?
@Hand-E-Food: It doesn't allow me to change tab either. I tried integer values as well, with and without spaces by the px, but that didn't help. Heck, I even tried putting a pixel value in the rotation field.

comment How can I extract an icon from a file-type and apply it to a shortcut?
Oops, didn't read that properly. Yep, I've got it working now. Piece of advice: use an ordered list next time in your answer - it makes it easier to read.

That's not working for me. I can find the extension folders no problem, but there don't seem to be DefaultIcon folders within them. Are they hidden to non-admininstrators?

Good point. That's the feature that I was missing from the change icon menu.

My problem is more: "given a file-type associated with no program, find (or extract) the icon file used for the file".

comment How can I extract an icon from a file-type and apply it to a shortcut?
I don't think it works for what I'm trying to do. That extracts icons from a .dll or .exe. I want to know which .dll or .exe a certain file-type gets its icon from. Also, I'm having difficulty finding a download link

comment How can I make desktop.ini work on network locations?
No, that's not the problem. The desktop.ini file seems to be ignored, as none of the other commands in it are being processed either. Interestingly, I can't set it to be "hidden".
