Each time I power up the computer, the first microphone is selected. Where can I specify that the last one should be the default one?
You can try pavucontrol.

How to change the size of the letters of the grub menu? They are very tiny, I hardly can read them.
The answer is going to rely on everything you didn't tell us.

This makes flatpack access the same cursor style as the systems and makes it consistent.
I don't use flatpacks or snaps but I think a lot of people will find that very helpful. Well done.

Re: ( NO ) Linux Mint Developers Will Force Updates on Users Like Microsoft Does with Windows 10

Isn't it better to use device IDs which don't change? The need for foolproof, idiot-proof technology is driven by the planet having a lot of fools and idiots, hence UUIDs were invented. I can guarantee that on any of my systems, "/dev/sdX' is always the correct device, every time and without f...

Re: ntfs-3g drive ownership and fstab options

I am sure that it's not normal to assign the fstab mount point ownership to the user. Sure it is. All my systems do it that way. It's a choice. Even so while I own the mount-points, everything in those folders are still owned by root. That simply isn't possible. NTFS doesn't know about ether Linux ...

Seems like there was a discussion on LMF and I pitched the idea of this, right down to the idea of microwaves used as the mechanism of power broadcasting. I tried searching but didn't find the discussion.
I typed in 'microwave' and it came up as the first result.

Simply open /etc as root, by right clicking, choose "Open as root" and copy fstab and paste to to a flash drive or other location.
A simple copy/paste is far quicker and easier than that rigmarole, and the current user becomes the owner of the copy, not root.

I think you meant sudo apt autoclean, not autoremove!
No, I checked. autoremove removes old kernels and retains two. autoclean cleans the cache.
