comment Keyboard Shortcut to Swap Mouse Buttons
The exe is just a compiled AutoIt script (similar to AutoHotkey). Instead of the exe, you could run the au3.

comment Change default text editor to Sublime Text in Linux Mint
Apparently this is an issue with Mint which can be circumvented by using .local/share/applications/defaults.list instead. So, I've copied/pasted/edited the gedit lines to this file, and they're now successfully overriding their counterparts in /usr/share/applications/defaults.list, even after a reboot.

comment Change default text editor to Sublime Text in Linux Mint
It works at first, but after rebooting, defaults.list gets reverted, gedit back in place of sublime_text. What can I do to prevent this?

comment Audio not playing through receiver
Do you by chance have a Haswell chip? Many people with Intel 4400 and 4600 graphics are having this problem. Intel is working on it. In the meantime, using an older driver has solved it for me.

comment Why does File Explorer hang frequently in Windows 8?
Do you have any network locations under This PC? I had a Plex server causing Explorer to freeze until I disconnected it.

Why not just copy/paste the domain into a (ctrl+b) bookmark search?

comment How to change default folder template for MTP Device?
I've been wondering the same thing. So tired of "date modified" being replaced with star ratings and the like. MTP's a real drag sometimes. Hope we find a solution.

comment How to set default view in folders in Windows 7
In addition to this, you could set a folder template to preserver which columns show up in Details view across all folders, as detailed here: sevenforums.com/tutorials/15699-folder-template-default.html

comment PCIe x1 card in a x16 slot = computer won't turn on
Is there any kind of x16 to x1 converter that will allow me to use the x1 PCIe wireless N card that I have? Otherwise, I suppose I'll have to buy a PCI wireless N card.

comment PCIe x1 card in a x16 slot = computer won't turn on
Great info. So, if x16 is only for graphics, how is it able to support the PCI adapter that's been plugged into it all its life? I've been successfully running an old PCI wireless G adapter off of that.

comment Windows 7 Firewall Blocking FTP Server
Both TCP and UDP were opened... I never did end up getting the Windows 7 firewall to work (even after reinstalling Windows) so I went with Comodo Firewall instead, and haven't had any issues.

comment My netbook keeps freezing
It has a regular old HDD. I installed a fresh copy of Windows when I got the computer and never installed either of those programs.

comment My netbook keeps freezing
I've had the task manager open in the past and there haven't been any CPU spikes. This doesn't resemble a CPU spike anyway -at least not any I've seen. This is a total system freeze. Absolutely nothing will rouse it. Not ctrl+alt+del, not anything.

comment Windows 7 Firewall Blocking FTP Server
Ok, now I've made it as open as possible, allowing any protocol on any port for the service, on both the inbound and outbound rules. It still won't work!

comment Windows 7 Firewall Blocking FTP Server
The server is running as a service. I've now opened 20-21, but nothing. What's this about passive mode? I'm using zFTPserver.
