How to make Windows 7 usable

Classic software

Usability

  • Typical X11 behaviour focus-follows-mouse, no-raise, right-click-sends-back and middle-click-pastes: TXmouse (http://fy.chalmers.se/~appro/nt/TXMouse/); download binary and copy it in Startup folder (possibly for all users)
  • compose key: AllChars (http://sourceforge.net/projects/allchars/files/); unzip and copy .exe to Startup folder (possibly for all users) and *.dll to c:\Windows\system32.
  • Disable boot-time numlock: edit registry key InitialKeyboardIndicators and set bit 1 (mask value 2) to 0.
