comment How to add an SSD and boot from that?
+1 and thank you. I did not know that reinstalling would adjust settings. Hmmm, is there any tool to do that post facto? Otherwise I have to borrow an external CD drive & boot from that. I used EASUS partition manager & copied the partition. Please let me know if I can avoid reinstall. It looks like you are getting the answer here, thanks.

comment (How) can I change the time until the screensaver kicks in from the command line?
+1 Well, that's trange. I can see that it is updating the registry key, but when I right click the desktop (or go via control panel) and choose "peronalize", it still shows 5 mintes on the GUI. If I set 10 seconds via registry, the screen saver does not start after 10 seconds (or even a few minutes). If I set 1 minute in the GUI then it does start after 1 minute (and it updates the registry correctly).

That works :-) The first time only :-( presumably because I didn't have a registry entry the frist time, so could add, but might need to modify subsequently? +1 for trying. Thanks

comment Why is my taskbar so thick?
Strange. Did you try clicking the top edge and dragging it down slightly to manually resize it?

comment Permissions … how to make a folder undeleteable?
+1 I am not sure that I understand "lock' a particular directory, not ALL the directories" - do you mean lock the directory, but not its sub-direcctories e.g lock /home/a but not /home/a/b or /home/a/c etc ?
