@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 - I had actually done the first one once already for a different "service" account and forgotten about it. ::sigh:: Thanks for the reminder... :D

Should have specified this is the Home edition. No Group Policy :-/

comment remedy for a no scroll wheel trackball?
It's very simple to update the script to use a different button. There is a comment above a variable assignment near the top -- change "XButton1" to another value to use that button instead. There's a list of special keys in the AHK help file (just run AHK from the Start menu) under "List of Keys, Mouse Buttons, and Joystick Controls", where you can pick any key/button to act as the modifier.

The linked download mirror shows up as malware - not sure if it's a false positive, but not chancing it for now.

comment What do I have to index in order to search the Windows Control Panel (in Win10)?
I get one folder that has "mouse" in the name, then "Store" results, then "Web" results. No control panel / settings. It does now say "We're getting search ready..." but the Indexing Options control panel says "Indexing Complete". Is my search hosed?

comment Use touchpad while “typing”?
Two observations: one, Synaptics really needs to stop moving every. single. setting. whenever they make a minor-version increment in the driver software. Two, this needs to be managed by either the vendor software or the Windows control panel -- it's a terrible idea to have conflicting settings in both places!

comment How to enable Synaptics Touchpad While Typing (without disabling palmcheck)?
Thank you zeel, this has been bugging me for ages -- when you need to hold a key + click for an action, I could not get it to work for the life of me. The strange thing is, with the setting disabled, holding a key while trying to move the trackpad results in some, stuttery movement. Better than nothing, I guess?

comment Can I show the “All Apps” section of the Metro Start screen using the keyboard?
This does get the job done, though it seems like there should be a simpler way. <kbd>PgDn</kbd> moves the selection cursor between "groups" in the main Start screen, rather than changing to the All Apps screen as I'd expect, for example. If there's not a single-key way to do this, I'll accept your answer, but it seems like an oversight.
