comment Increase of virtualbox disk size
This might in turn be because I changed the disk size while snapshotted, but I cannot reduce it anymore with modifyhd. I get "VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED".

comment Increase of virtualbox disk size
You are likely to be correct, but I cannot remove the snapshot. When I try to delete it (and merge to the vdi) I only get an error message "VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER", Component Medium, "VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004)". The "Details" tab gives now "Mind.vdi (Normal, Inaccessible)", but the VM does start normally.

comment Windows 7 task bar in auto-hide, hide again after notification
It is not the icon in the system tray that is flashing, it is the button in the task bar.

comment How to control Windows 7 snap feature with two monitors?
@mgutt: DisplayFusion snaps to monitor edges (even if there is another adjacent monitor). The window does not get height-maximized though.

@AdamV: mouse-based, or win+shift+up.

comment How to reload windows color settings after change of registry key?
A way to send messages without writing a C function is apparently autohotkey: autohotkey.com/docs/commands/PostMessage.htm , but even there, no luck for me.

comment How to reload windows color settings after change of registry key?
I have the same problem. I read about WM_SETTINGCHANGE, to be broadcasted to all windows social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/csharpgeneral/thread/… , but I couldn't make it work. Maybe this link helps, in that case tell me if you figure it out!

comment How to increase contrast of Windows 7 Menu Item highlight
Changing wrong monitor settings (brightness and contrast) is a good suggestion!

comment How to increase contrast of Windows 7 Menu Item highlight
I think these parameters are taken into account only if the user is not using an Aero style. It may only work with "Windows Classic" theme.

comment git bash icon on windows 7
I did not try to rebuild the icon cache, but creating a new shortcut by myself did the trick.

comment git bash icon on windows 7
The target is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i. I created a new shortcut "sh" in the same location as the "Git Bash" shortcut (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Git), and it is working! I diffed the files and they do differ, but not visibly in links' properties dialog. The problem is solved, thank you, but I don't understand why the icon was broken in the first place.

comment Setting default keyboard layout application-specific?
So I guess the answer is no, you cannot setup WinXP to remember the keyboard setting used for an application, and use it directly from the start (you have to change it manually after start of the application).

comment How can I scan multiple pages into a single PDF?
I needed to unclick the box "Use Custom Size". That made the "Scan" button available even in "Show details" mode, and did combine the scans to a single pdf.

comment How can I scan multiple pages into a single PDF?
I just tried that, but still get two jpeg files instead of one pdf. This has been working earlier, I suppose that Apple broke the program with a bad update. The "Scan" button is also grayed out if "Show details" mode, but not in "Hide details" mode. "It just works", please allow me to laugh.
