Re: Jagged movement of windows/applications on screen

Thank you thx-1138

Hi Andy, thanks for the tip. I just set up a virtual machine as suggested just in case I need it in the future. Fortunately I was able to find the embedded MS key.

Re: How to turn Bluetooth device connection switch to "on"

Hi Maze 229,

Did you solve the Microsoft Designer Mouse issue? I have a similar issue with Mint 18.3 installed and haven't been able to get a connection at all with the mouse (not visible in Bluetooth devices to connect).
