    Right click on the clock and go to Properties, it will take you to the same customization of icons screen.

    @olexiy:Also, the "Customize notification icons" screen Andrew was on has a "Turn system icons on or off" link at the bottom which also takes you to the same place.

    If you do not need regex you can try searching with Windows Explorer (google "windows explorer search contents" or check this animated instruction).

    But for regular expression I had to install Total Commander, and it is really painful to log in into Virtual Machine to quickly check logs and find out that Total Commands is not installed...

    I have 2 questions:
    1.) What is the point of using Strings.exe with FindStr.exe? They kind of seem like the same thing - provided your goal is to simply find a string in any kind of file.
    2.) Why do I (and you in your video) get the "FINDSTR: Line XXXX is too long." error message? Is there some limitation on FindStr that is bombs if the file is too big? If so, is there a better alternative to FindStr that will much larger files/lines?
