OK, I never went further in Windows than XP SP1 before switching to Linux, I never used hot keys.

XP was was the best in my opinion. To this day in my desktop environment I basically just try to emulate windows xp mixed up with a few windows 7 things.

I use hotkeys to open and close my DVD tray as it saves me the few tries it normally takes me bending over to get the thing open. Considering that takes a lot of effort for me I use a key combo now so all I need to do is insert or take out the disk :)

Sadly there's no File manager app that I know of yet that can give an XP/7 Window explorer experience.

2. How to increase the size of FF scrollbars on the right (& sometimes at the bottom) of the window? They're too small for my taste.
There used to be a CSS-switch within userChrome.css /userContent.css to adjust scrollbar-width, which will not work anymore within recent FF( >57 = quantum). :eek:
With the extension "NewScrollbars (aka NoiaScrollbars)" you can change scollbar width and color for FF (<57) and other ff-based browsers like Pale Moon, Basilisk, Waterfox. I'm rarely using ff anyway.
You might have a look at those alternative browsers.
Pale Moon is available from within MXPI (MX Package Installer).
