comment Backspace does not work in Cygwin
The simplest fix by far. Hope there are no side-effects.

comment Windows 7 will not install a root certificate
It's impossible to tell from the second screenshot how to find this setting; it's here: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Public Key Policies.

comment How do I permanently disable javascript strict warnings in Firefox?
devtools.errorconsole.deprecation_warnings doesn't remove all the warnings. In particular, it doesn't remove the one caused by AdBlock.

comment How can I control the audio volume of a Modern-UI application?
Great. Try skyping while using a game. You'd better hope that the game has its own volume control. Simplify as far as you can BUT NO FURTHER, and they certainly went overboard, completely killing the super-awesome feature of adjusting the relative volume of two apps.

Thank you! What an anti-feature. Good thing there's a work-around.

comment Clear 301-redirect cache in Firefox
Nice! Unlike my solution, this works even if your only visit to the site is a redirect to an error page, because those don't appear in the history and you have nothing to click "Forget about this site" on.

comment My PC is not a phone - how do I remove the swipey pre-log in screen from Gnome 3?
Terrible discoverability, acceptable usability. A good example of the difference between the two!

comment Set display scaling when using Remote Desktop from Surface Pro
DPI sync is nice and all, but all that was really necessary was to allow zooming in: a client-side feature that would have worked with ALL servers. Better make it a bit ugly than completely useless with Server 2008 R2...

comment Remote Desktop Zooming
Perfect! Just to clarify, this does not require any configuration at all; what happens is that RDPMan is not high-DPI compatible and so Windows simply bitmap-scales the whole lot. Which is all I needed to begin with.

comment Remote Desktop Zooming
I want to see the person who coded the maximum RDP window size limit for the smart-sizing feature. It's just a window with an image stretched to fill! Just leave the max size limits out of it and it would have done exactly what we wanted!
