comment Reliable custom Windows shortcut keys?
@Tyr: it does. I started using that in Windows XP, but continue to do so in Win7. I haven't used the start menu search very much, but my impression is that Launchy is still faster. I may be wrong on that though.

comment How to turn a keyboard shortcut into a Desktop shortcut?
As I understand it, you want several ways to perform one single action. Rather than making the file trigger the shortcut, that then triggers the action, I find it more logical to have both the file and the shortcut perform the action directly. file -> win-key -> start menu seems less logical than file -> start menu and win-key -> start menu separately. Maybe it's not practical in your case, but you can consider it.

and as the comment says, an example would clarify greatly.

comment How to turn a keyboard shortcut into a Desktop shortcut?
I automatically interpreted that the keyboard shorcuts in question were custom ones. The result of my answer is a desktop file doing whatever OP wants, and a keyboard shortcut to trigger that file. That way he can continue to use his (assumingly custom) shortcut, while mouse-trapped users can use the shortcut. Everyone is happy. But I see your point. If OP wants a way to e.g. open the system settings with win+pause, I would say that the correct way is not to have a desktop file trigger win+pause, but to have the file open the system settings itself.

comment Win+Space keyboard shortcut doesn't work for me in Windows 7. Why?
The windows are only transparent while the win key is pressed. Releasing space and keeping win down keeps the windows transparent.

comment Does `dd` on a device skip anything?
Is sync padding only if there is a problem in the source ("provide"), or even in the destination?

I am not sure I can make sense of that. Would you care to extend your (valid) answer as to why the conv options in the restore operation create problems?

comment Does `dd` on a device skip anything?
Removing the conv options at the restore operation did the trick, thanks a lot! My understanding of sync was that dd would then replace erroneous bytes in the input by NULL in the image, therefore keeping the alignment. Noerror would keep dd going in spite of such byte errors. I see now that if there were byte errors in the original disk, these would be NULL in the image, and restoring would try to put NULL back at these erroneous locations. sync in the restore operation should fill in with NULL where the image itself has errors... but since it is an image file on an NTFS filesystem...

comment How do I get ftype & assoc to match Windows Explorer?
If I understand correctly, the key .py\Application is used to open the py files. What I do not understand is in what cases the value in Python.File is used.
