To install it just double click on downloaded XRNC files. Renoise will launch and install theme automatically.
Also, i’ve figured out how to change internal font and set custom mouse cursor. Tracker doesn’t provide GUI for such options. All settings related to current skin could be found here:

Previous owner of my main laptop installed the most modern intel WiFi chip, AX200
to be precise. Unfortunately, chip does not have drivers for beloved Windows 7. Yeah intel dropped support in 2019. So, i have to downgrade wireless card. Found on eBay compatible Dell WiFi 1820
: the last one to support Windows 7 operating system.
I always loved Dell’s Precision series for super easy installation of hardware upgrades.

FAQ ver 0.1b
▓ PREFACE This comprehensive guide will be handy for those of you who can’t figure out why hp printer is not detected by windows using usb connection and for those of you who are asking himself/herself “why do i need to do usb plug to setup device for wireless work?”
hp is notoriously known in terms of really s#cky printer drivers. During all my career of system administrator i’ve constantly ran into driver related problems with hp devices.
By default software forbids execution when you are using classic desktop and aero is not enabled.
However, there is a nice workaround. By adding –no-dwm-warning switch to starting shortcut you can avoid internal restriction.
"C:\Program Files\Affinity\Photo\Photo.exe" --no-dwm-warning NOTE: with some graphical drivers you may experience visual artifacts and not precise image rendering.

▒ HARDWARE Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra BIOS: F34 [F35b breaks compatibility with Windows 7]
I think that guide will be useful due to nightmarish non-ergonomic structure of Gigabyte’s BIOS menus.
▒ UEFI vs MBR Windows 7 supports UEFI only partially, there is no native handling of this modern tech. I don’t see any reason to use UEFI, only if you want to boot from drive which is larger than 2TB.
v0.88b: please contact me
if you find errors or inaccuracies.
In this guide i will quickly show my system configuration tweaked for privacy. I’m using essential stuff like 4G/WiFi & BT. Additional pleasantries are blocked.
█ ANDROID 8: OS WITH MINIMAL TELEMETRY Operating System: Android 8.0 [Android 8.1 ain’t good, coz it brought support of neural networks to do effective data mining] Security patch: 1st September 2018 FW Version: 47.
Today, I’ve accidentally deleted local .git index folder of my blog repository, because of this I was not able to submit new content. Tried to restore files by File Scavenger, but it was too late because I was in the middle of active file operations and .git folder was erased without any chance of returning it back to drive.
I’ve tried to recreate index by means of:
git init But Git-Bash-console threw me an error:

Finally I’ve managed to finish this part of the FAQ. Note is a loooong-read, so mistakes can occur » please report them to me
One of the most distinctive features of FireFox was customization. With each new version it becomes less customizable, thanks to marketing people at mozilla corp. They do everything to make Firefox look like google chrome. I stopped using plain FireFox @ version 80.

For example pretend that we would like to move all files from SD-card of the camera, which were created in last 5 days to local hard drive or ssd. We should point out original location, then destination, affected files and commmand parameters. It would be something like this:
Robocopy I:\DCIM\100OLYMP C:\Users\User\Desktop\FRESH\ *.JPG *.ORF *.MOV *.AVI /E /MOV /MAXAGE:5 /E – copy sub-folders, including empty ones /MOV – move files instead of copying /MAXAGE:5 – exclude files, which are aged more than 5 days
is a great graphical effects plugin pack to work with your favorite raster editor [mine is Affinity Photo
in case you are interested]. Everything is fine, except annoying update popup, which is opening right after every plugin initialization. Such stuff completely breaks workflow if you don’t want to update for some reason. And there is no way to turn it off from GUI using normal methods.
However, you can shut update checks off from configuration file, which is located here:
UPDATED ON: 2021-12-04 ► Added info on 2.93.7 LTS & 3.0 Final
