comment Excel 2013: “We couldn't free up space on the clipboard. Another program might be using it right now”
@ṧнʊß I haven't used Microsoft Excel for a while and the complain does not appear very frequently. I use Ditto but it removes the formatting, which might be annoying sometime. I cannot remember whether Ditto did copy the text even when Excel was complaining. Next time I have to use Excel heavily I'll keep an eye on it and let you know!

comment “Please wait until the current program is finished uninstalling or being changed” -> How do I know which one?
@SamuelNicholson Thanks yes but the point is to find out which application was being uninstalled (ideally without having to restart Windows or killing a random amount of other processes like when I initiate a restart as proposed by Sickest)

comment Getting URL in status-bar immediately on hovering over a link
@MattVoboril As an additional information for me to know whether it is worth to click on the link (which sometime includes security reason). Pretty much the same reasons why people want to have the full URL in the status-bar I guess.

comment Getting URL in status-bar immediately on hovering over a link
@MattVoboril The faster the full URL get displayed, the better. Besides avoiding some waiting time, I use a control the mouse cursor with my head and it's annoying having to hover on a small zone for a long time (vs. a traditional computer mouse where not moving is straightforward).

comment Getting URL in status-bar immediately on hovering over a link
@MattVoboril I didn't time it precisely, just meant the URL getting does not get entirely displayed immediately...

comment Getting URL in status-bar immediately on hovering over a link
@MattVoboril Hmm it is neither immediate on my laptop (i7) nor on my Alienware 6-physical-core desktop. Gif added. I would have said at worse I have some extension slowning Chrome down, but same issue in incognito.

comment How can I change the background color of a cell in LyX?
Thanks indeed that's what I use when I edit the code directly, but does LyX provide any GUI way to do it (like it does for text coloring for instance)?

Thanks but isn't Cassava for Haskell? Does it integrate well with a Python program?

comment Restarting all tabs in SuperPuTTY at once?
Thanks, yes that's indeed a pis-aller, but ideally I'd like to avoid creating a new layout it's time I need to restart a bunch of sessions at once.
