comment How can I get Windows 8 to stop asking me about mailto links?
I've tried removing Chrome as a handler in this way, but still no luck. The popup returns if I'm using the extension.

I don't allow Chrome to run in the background. That could be a fix, but I don't want it to run in the background.

Just gave that a shot, but the popup came right back.

I have already attempted to change the default mail client in the way linked here. Chrome is already listed as the default handler for mailto links. As you can see from the screenshot above, Win8 is asking if I want to "keep using Google Chrome" or switch to another application. What I don't understand is why it must keep asking.

comment Git Always Prompts for Passphrase
You may have to reboot, or at least log out and in. From the most up-voted answer here, it would appear the loading of keychain keys to ssh-agent happens at login.

comment How can I prevent Ask Toolbar and Ask Toolbar Updater from installing when jucheck installs an update?
Did you uncheck the box that tells it to install? I haven't had this issue with jucheck.

Could you not create separate accounts for them with access to what they need? That way you can delete their account/remove permissions when their need for access is over?

I have been having this same problem, and @Peadar's solution does not help. I have set Chrome to be the default mail handler both in Chrome and in Windows' "Default Programs" control panel. Still, I get the same pop-up every time I visit Gmail in Chrome.

comment Windows 8 Hyper-V network not working on host
I'd set this up before, and forgotten about the internal network adapter/sharing option. Thanks for the reminder.
