It's called a Tool(bar) Window. Any windows that have the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW extended style will be rendered without a system menu or minimize/maximize boxes, and a small titlebar. In Windows XP and up (that support themes), tool windows are usually rendered without rounded corners (at least with the default themes). This style is usually used for toolbars ...

Apparently, you can't. Also, Editing improvements section here says: Gallery of basic Styles OneNote 2010 adds a quick gallery of basic note-taking styles, such as Heading 1, 2, 3.

I solved the problem with these steps: I selected the text and in the context menu instead of selecting Edit Paragraph Style I selected Paragraph. To my surprise though I had selected Outline Level as Body Text in Outline and numbering of Edit Paragraph style, it was still Level 1 in Paragraph's Outline Level. Once I changed it to Body Text everything went ...

Yeah, the fact that styles can't be customized or re-ordered is annoying. However, it is actually possible to customize the "Normal" style's font characteristics. Go to File, Options, General and then you can specify the font characteristics under Default font. Also, you can apply the Normal style using the shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+N. I find this is useful ...

This is possible using tabstops. It's a little bit cumbersome because you'll have to calculate the position of the "centre" tabstop yourself. In the following example, i'm assuming you're working with a4 paper in portrait format, the width of the entire page is 21 cm. Assuming left and right margin is 2 cm each, the "content area" has width of 17 cm. If ...

For the record, this is what I ended up with: (This all applies to Word 2003, other versions should be similar.) Under File, choose "Save as Web Page." In the format pull-down, choose "filtered web page" and save as a .htm file.

Not sure if this is even remotely reliable, but I have discovered that if I copy/paste syntax highlighted code from Visual Studio 2010 into Word 2010, then select the line just above the code block with it before applying a style to it, then the colours are preserved. I'm inclined to agree with what rumtscho's answer says with regard to how styles should ...

I thought this odd behavior had to be specific to French. Surely letters such as å or ö would be correctly capitalized to ÅÖ, and indeed they are. Furthermore, if I change the language of the text to, say, German, then all accents are preserved. In fact, the behavior is specific to text in the “French (France)” language — accented letters in other French ...

Gmail is aware of Word styles. Any styling on text copied from Word is pasted from the clipboard as either Word HTML or RTF if the destination application supports those formats (which Gmail's editor does). Visual Studio's styling isn't copied to the clipboard as Word HTML or RTF, so Gmail's editor will ignore the VS styling. However, Word is aware of VS ...

Originally I posted the extension Yarip as being able to accomplish what you want. As pointed out by JohnKiller in many cases it won't do the job because of the width/margin issues that he mentioned. Firebug + Firediff (to export the changes) + Stylish (to make changes persistent) is definitely the way to go. I was able to identify what was needed to get ...

These are all the same menu with additions. Some applications add entries to their System menu - the menu that one sees when clicking on the little logo picture that is on the upper-left of the application's window border. Windows simply displays the same menu when one right-clicks the task bar.
