comment Can I delete MSOCache?
@Boris_yo: mklink /J. But if you install MS Office to run everything from your local installation, why would you want to keep MSOCache around? I've done precisely that, and Word, PowerPoint and Excel work just fine. If you don't see me coming back and leaving another comment, it means this is a stable solution.

If it takes days to scan an whatnot, and given the OP's Windows was freshly installed, it's fastser to just wipe and install Windows + select updates again.

comment How can I enable pretty-printing in Chrome manually?
That extension is not open source, and hasn't been maintained since 2013. JSON Formatter is actively maintained, better rated, and open source.

comment Enable ~4K (3840 X 2160) resolution on Windows 7 with Intel HD Graphics card
@BalaSivakumar: what do you mean? On the exact same hardware combination, Ubuntu handles the resolution just fine. I simply want the same in Windows.

comment Enable ~4K (3840 X 2160) resolution on Windows 7 with Intel HD Graphics card
@MC10: actually I didn't explicitly see 60Hz (added a screenshot), but never saw anything slower than I'm used to. By comparison, the 30Hz custom resolution in Windows was just bad - even the mouse moved visibly more slowly.

@HarryJohnston: I've checked the drive and folder path, and "Compress this drive / contents to save disk space" was disabled. Plus JPGs aren't compressible.

comment How can I get Total Commander to recognize Cygwin symlinks?
This isn't just a Cygwin symlink problem. Total Commander can't copy symlinks created with the Windows native mklink command.
