comment Increase maximal thumbnail size in Windows Explorer
The largest thumbnails supported in Windows Explorer are 256x256 pixels. How? Where? Why? It is hard-coded somewhere in explorer.exe? Maybe there's a way to hack it bigger. I really don't see why there should be any technical reason for it to not be possible to be bigger, the re-sizing algorithm should work just fine for bigger thumbnails, it's just a matter of hacking Explorer. Damn, now I have yet another project to add to my list. ಠ_ಠ

comment How can I disable HTML5 content in popular browsers like Firefox and Chrome?
“HTML5” is a buzzword. Please specify what you want to disable. It’s pretty clear (if you actually bothered to read the question, especially the second and last lines) what he wanted/wants to disable: HTML5 video and audio elements.

comment How can I search for all files that have their archive bit set in Windows 7?
Wow, you just gotta love how “user-friendly” the new (at that time) Windows Explorer search function is. Learning about bit-fields and doing bitwise math is so much easier for novice users than simply checking check-boxes or using text strings. ◔_◔ (Also, this makes it very difficult to search for a single attribute regardless of others. For example, to search for hidden objects, you have to search for H, H+A, H+R, H+S, H+R+A, H+R+S, H+R+A+S, let alone …+I…, …+E…, etc. So many permutations.)

comment How do I connect a 5 1/4" floppy drive to a modern PC?
I guess the reason that there are no formal, official, branded USB 5.25" floppy drives is because there is not enough demand to justify the manufacturing costs. Even official USB 3.5" drives will get phased out as demand peters off. Seems like a good time to get an electronics kit (breadboard, PSU, wires, etc.) and an Rπ/Arduino to “roll your own”.

comment svchost.exe high memory usage - wuauserv
you can always reset wuauserv with the following BAT script For the record, it's either (.)BAT file or batch script (or batch file), not BAT script which sounds more like a script for The Bat!.

comment What is the lastest working version of VMWare Player on Windows 7 32 bits?
(I’m upgrading VM Player 4 to 6; hopefully the horrible “jealous child” bug has been fixed since VMP4.)

This worked perfectly. Changing resolution or toggling shadows did nothing.
