    "Start" text in StartScreen - change


    If you have got tired of that rather too obvious StartScreen title, here's how to change it -

    First, backup this file: System32\en_US\twinui.dll.mui

    Take ownership and control of twinui.dll.mui and then open in Resource Hacker.

    Expand to:
    String table 235, Line 3751

    Change text from "Start" to whatever you want, or delete the line to delete the text.
    Compile.
    Save.
    Reboot.

    This was enough for me, but if it doesn't take effect:
    Run > mcbuilder, then reboot again.

"Text Only" print driver no longer working?
For many years, I've used the Generic / Text Only virtual printer driver to convert Web pages and other files to plain text with minimal formatting, but the last time I used it, the resulting file was peppered with unnecessary spaces, making it close to indecipherable when viewed in a text editor. ...
