If I start a Modern-UI app and then switch to a different app or a normal program running on the desktop, what happens to the first app? The app enters a suspended state — you can check its resources in task manager. Apps will be suspended when you are not using them, this is for performance.

Most programs follow the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (man hier): libraries go to /usr/lib, configuration files to /etc, static data to /usr/share, and so on. Some self-contained programs put all data in /opt/<program>/. .deb/.rpm packages are not supposed to be unpacked manually – they should be handled by the apropriate program, dpkg or rpm. ...

I do not see how it would be of benefit, everything in add/ remove programs or the appwiz.cpl is in the registry at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall as a subkey. MSI installers write their GUID in the format {AFF7153F-C4AA-4C48-AEE9-8611D276CE86} This is not really a problem, as much as a difficulty in reading the keys. There are ...

Don't do it. Installers will usually report requiring elevation anyway. If they don't, Windows will probably ask whether the installation succeeded and give you an option to redo the process with elevation. For incidental use, take half a second to right-click and run as admin, or type the executable's name in the start menu's search, then hit ...

Look at aclock. Aclock is an analog clock program for text mode console displays, terminals, or terminal emulators. This program is obviously absolutely useless, except for turning your old, expensive mainframe or supercomputer into a wall clock. It has also the bonus of running pretty much anywhere: from DOS to Linux to old UNIX systems.

Yes, it is called AutoIt. You would use something like this: While 1 ;loop indefinitely WinActivate("notepad","") ;give focus to notepad Sleep(30000) ;sleep 30 seconds WinActivate("wordpad","") ;give focus to wordpad Sleep(30000) ;sleep 30 seconds WEnd WinActivate() gives focus to the window with exact or closest matching title, in cases ...

Command like nethogs can be used for the requirement. You can install it using sudo apt-get install nethogs from the command line. NetHogs is a small 'net top' tool. Instead of breaking the traffic down per protocol or per subnet, like most tools do, it groups bandwidth by process. NetHogs does not rely on a special kernel module to be loaded. If there's ...

Yes. If you're using Windows' built-in explorer (not Internet Explorer), you can hold down the SHIFT key and press right click on the item (which can be a file or folder). Then the only thing you need to do is select the "Copy as path" option. Now the path of the item will be placed in your clipboard and you can use it by pasting it anywhere.

First of all note that deleting empty directories usually isn't necessary. Some services or applications might even need certain directories to exist. Be aware of what you're doing. You can list empty folders with find, when run from Terminal.app: find . -type d -empty By default find lists files and folders, but here, -type d restricts it to ...

I'll give you two options. One possibility is to disable it entirely, in System Preferences -> General pane -> disable "Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps". You can also disable it temporarily while quitting an application. Just quit with Command-Option-Q -- a shortcut for "Quit and Discard Widows", which is also available under the ...

Bryan here. Guy behind Less.app. The above locations for the data file and preferences are correct. The reason the app stores the information in a "don't mess with this" format is that it was never designed to be used across machines. Here's the reason: say you have two computers. They both have the exact same website project in the exact same location. ...

Since the only other answer doesn't really "fix" the issue, just acknowledges it, I think it's worth saying I had this same issue, and discovered the problem.

I can ...

On Windows (and possibly other 64-bit operating systems), 32 bit applications are supported. One possible advantage of a 32 bit application is therefore greater portability. The main advantage of a 64 bit application is that it can access 4GB or more of memory as a flat address space. However, relatively few applications benefit from that. The disadvantage ...
