Re: Desktop Accessibility Scaling Options?

bmstrong, I know what your mother's experiencing. I'm in my 50's, and while my uncorrected eyesight was mediocre 30 years ago, it's not even that good today. Presbyopia, in particular, is a princess. :) One option for your mom (and this is one I've primarily chosen for myself) is simply to get a pai...

Re: Samsung Mobile to Mint Cinnamon

Re: I just can't find a good Microsoft office alternative

> I’m so used to Microsoft office 2016 that I find it hard to swap to another program. MS Office 2016 was released in late 2015. Maybe 20 months or so ago.

How to turn off menu selection on mouse hover

I'm running Mint 17.2 Cinnamon. Sometimes I'll hover my mouse pointer for a second or three over some Menu entry, and that entry will then be... selected... as if I'd clicked on it. How can I turn this off? You know, so that no entry is activated or expanded or anything like that, unless I actually ...
