Ok, so from what I hear, it sounds like the Windows8 start screen is incapable of spanning 2 screens?

comment Run batch file with custom drive mappings
I prefer SUBST.exe to this method since, if you ever had to delete the symbolic link then it would SEEM to be very precarious. Using the "subst /d X:" command is much safer and less scary than using "rm -r X:\" . I know MKLINK is a symbolic link but i would still want to be careful "just in case" it was a hard link.

comment Determine if command is recognized in a batch file
Yeah, but its ugly since, if the command is not found it throws a 2 line error. So, a cleaner solution could be found possibly.

comment phpmyadmin wont work on fresh ubuntu 12.04 vb setup
I personally prefer to use the MySQL Workbench app : mysql.com/downloads/workbench , especially if your adminstering from your Windows 7 machine. The phpmyadmin app is from the days before "MySQL Workbench" was available...

comment Find vs Findstr results
I think with those special characters, like '^', you need to enable delayed expansion in your script. This script is an example I made that uses both FIND and FINDSTR.exe : thegreenoak.blogspot.com/2012/01/… .
