Blinker lites, bigger MRU
« on: December 10, 2012, 09:15:03 AM »
My daughter's 2007 Saturn Aura no longer has working blinkers.

They don't blink on either right or left turns.

I am looking for ideas on what to check.

One person said to check if the emergency blinkers work and then go from there.

----------------------------------------------------------

I would like to have a larger MRU history when I use the RUN command.

Is there a way to make it bigger ?

I use the Run box a lot to start programs etc. and it only holds about 20 commands.

---------------------------------------------------------
I am trying Opera again.

I am having problems with certain buttons not working on some websites.

Firefox doesn't have any problems.

blinkers - find the fuse block - check the fuses
the little blinker unit may be nearby - check that, too

MRU - not sure there is a way to make it larger
but, i have been wanting to write a little reg file that will set a specific set of programs in there when i boot up   :P

I could make you a program to put in some startup programs.

I guess you would want buttons and all ?

thanks, Andy
but - i was just thinking of a REG file that gets imported at startup
also - the REG.EXE program can do it for you from a batch file   :P
or simply write a little program that initializes the MRU in the registry from an INI file

i only use a few things
regedit
regedt32
msconfig

of course - it would be just as easy to make shortcuts - lol

Since you can put links in a text document and click to go there, there may be something I can put in a word document that I can double click on. Like "C:\Program Files\Opera\opera.exe"

you can create an HTML file with a link
or just create a shortcut and put it on your desktop or pin it to your start menu
