  1. – In Windows, how can I remove the shortcut for the Magnifier feature ? Quite often I accidentally launch it when I want to type a closing square bracket, and it messes up the size of all windows as well as the disposition of the icons on the desktop, and I have no use for it whatsoever.

    – I recently developped a severe case of allergy to the Windows session start sound, especially as it's supposed to have a cheerful tone, yet almost every time I hear it it's right after a BSOD and a forceful restart so I'm rather in the mood for punching something or rolling on the floor screaming. So where is it, and can I safely either blank it or replace it with something more in sync with my default mood, like a snippet from the third movement of Metal Machine Music, or “L.A. Blues” from Fun House on a good day ?
