How to fix broken Windows 7 shortcut keys for moving apps between multiple monitors

I discovered the hard way that disabling a particular setting in Windows 7 had the unexpected result of disabling the shortcut keys to move applications between monitors and to maximize and minimize. Specifically, I had enabled the "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen" option in Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Ease of Access Center > Make the keyboard easier to use.

PuTTY color scheme with a light background

The default PuTTY color scheme is white on black.  I prefer a black on white color scheme for my ssh terminal.

Here's the registry stuff you need to import to create a light background entry in PuTTY.
