comment How to group bookmarks in Emacs?
OK, should be fixed now (took me a moment to understand what links and what numbers you were talking about).

comment How to group bookmarks in Emacs?
@BradyTrainor 1. By bookmark lists I mean bookmark display lists, i.e., different states of buffer *Bookmark List*. You can make a bookmark of each such state. Such a stated records a given set of bookmarks, but also their markings, omissions, etc. 2. Tags alone give you easy set intersections. And you can in effect save different tag combinations using bookmark-list bookmarks.

comment How to group bookmarks in Emacs?
You mention multiple bookmark files. That is one way. I mentioned multiple bookmark lists, which is not the same thing. Both are possible and provide different benefits. I also mentioned Bookmark+ tags, which provide yet another way to group bookmarks. All of these ways can be combined.

comment Is there a way to specify minimum minibuffer/echo area size in emacs?
Wrt resize-mini-windows: Is your M-x emacs-version less than Emacs 22? If not then that variable should exist (it is in Emacs 22.1, the first 22 release). And it is the variable most likely to solve your problem, I believe. Sorry that the others don't help.

You must have at least the first two, unless your Emacs version is older than Emacs 20 (and even then I'm pretty sure you have at least the second one). If you have Emacs 22 or later then you must have all of them. Try C-h v for each. Some are not use options -- you can set them using setq.

comment emacs: kill-line doesn't append to kill ring
+1 to @lawlist's last comment. You don't say whether you see the problem when starting with emacs -Q. If not, then recursively bisect your init file to find out what you are doing that causes the problem.

comment Is Emacs' Easy Customize something I should avoid?
It is ridiculous to have put this question on hold, and especially a week after it was posed and with only two answers having been offered, with nothing shown to be controversial or disputed, and with no essentially no comments. "Will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise is the criterion, and NOTHING indicates such a tendency here, so far. "Almost entirely!", and so far *not at all.

comment Is Emacs' Easy Customize something I should avoid?
@mkaito It is a common, and mistaken, impression that Customize was/is intended only for novices (non-Lispers). That ignores the value of type-checking, set/initialize triggers, etc. Customize is much more than its UI, and even the UI need not be only for newbies. And see above for why it has not been actively improved by Emacs Dev (IMO). (Also, the person who wrote it is no longer active in Emacs Dev.)

comment How to set my special keys keycodes in Cygwin (ctrl+right etc…)?
What does this have to do with Emacs? Consider removing the [emacs] tag, or update your question to say how Emacs is involved.

comment replace shift > generated tab with spaces in emacs win32
What is Shift + > bound to? (And how do you even type that?) Check what the command bound to that key sequence (whatever it is really) is doing. There likely is either a way to tell it to use SPC chars instead or a hook to let you untabify afterward.
