comment How can I disable the low disk space warning on a single drive in Windows 8?
Do You know, does this apply to newer Windows versions too? The article You refer to mentions Win XP.

comment Empty recycle bin on E: drive
Super! You are saviour :) I changed the del "%%a" line to del /F "%%a" for it to be able to delete also read-only files. Also I added takeown /F "%%a" as a previous line for good measure.

@DavidPostill Processes can also be automatically killed using some additional tools or scripting. In that sense the answer needs to be improved, but perhaps is still an answer. Permanently removing the executable from its location does not work always either: during next manual update it is back in its location and surely the user forgets to delete it again. Also it might be that the user wants the auto-update to work most of the time, and wants to kill it only in special cases (during being in poor internet area). So it seems to depend on the situation whether the answer suits somebody.

@DavidPostill Can You please specify what precisely is wrong with that answer of Raj? It solves the problem and seems to be sufficiently self contained. In contrast, I cannot understand the content of your comment at all - essentially I only see some boilerplate addendum with missing introduction. So for example I think it is a valid answer. Even though maybe not the most convenient one - but that latter perception can also easily change given slightly different circumstances.

comment Keyboard shortcut for moving a window to another screen
Though under Windows7 You cannot move from the taskbar menu, You still can move the windows using shortcut keys: Ctrl+Space and then M, arrow keys, finally Enter. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Is there a way to snapshot a running process to disk to restore it later?
There is also a pssuspend command line utility from MS Sysinternals. You can find it over there: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897540. It is part of a PsTools package: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896649 where You can also find for example a pskill tool, which is for example rather handy after resuming a process and it happens to get way too excited.

Suspending a process effectively freezes all other processes that happen to send some windows messages to it. It so happens that some processes do like to send messages to other processes, and some processes like to be targets for such broadcasts. So, suspending some processes is harmless, but for other cases it will interfere Your work with the computer. And one more thing. Some processes, after being resumed from long-lasting suspend, will freeze and take all your CPU to make up for all the lost time computing something very smart :P
