elementary OS Boot Time After Replacing HDD with SSD

I have an older Asus K55A that I use for distro testing, or at least I did until my daughter claimed it for herself. It’s had elementary OS on it for a while now and since she’s repurposed the laptop for homework I figured she’d appreciate a disk drive upgrade.

Screen Capture and Video Editing on elementary OS

My video editing needs are pretty basic these days. I make the odd, very brief tutorial video. I used to make a lot of product videos for my old company back in my OS X days and was very familiar with all the tools of the trade. I was never more than a hobbyist but I got by.

Set elementary OS Files to Double-Click

elementary OS performs the primary action (i.e. open a file) when you click once on an item in Pantheon Files. This single-click behavior can be pretty jarring when many other OS’s rely on the age-old double-click action.

Tweaking Fonts in elementary OS

By default, elementary OS only has an option in the System Settings panel (System Settings > Universal Access > Seeing:Display > Reading > Text Size) to globally alter the font scaling. I am fine with the fonts at the normal setting, but monospaced fonts on dark backgrounds are to difficult to see at 10px (default) so I need to set it to 11px.
