comment How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)
@Shagun I agree. I removed it, since it's completely irrelevant to the otherwise correct answer.

revised How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)
it clearly *is* a misfeature of Windows install, removing any commentary about that so it's factual and we don't need to debate

Why do you think step 7 is optional? Windows install always trashes the MBR, and step 7 is the only step that touches the MBR. update-grub only updates the grub configuration file according to the man page, and my tests.

comment How do you remap a key to the Caps Lock key in Xubuntu?
As far as I recall, you also need to ensure you've turned on any "Use system keyboard layout" option, and/or disabled IBus. See e.g. askubuntu.com/a/442415/1951
