comment Why does my desktop look much worse after upgrading to windows 8.1?
Propose a metric or unit for "worse" or "much" or "weird" or "pixellation" or "not quite". Go on, I dare you. ;)

comment Is it necessary to regularly check drives for bad sectors?
Thanks. I use and monitor SMART attributes, but I believe that SMART only tallies bad sectors that are accessed in some way (read/written), and then increments a flag. I'm wondering if a somewhat-regular full scans of disks should be done to "preemptively" find any bad sectors and have them reallocated elsewhere -- ...or if this is unnecessary and/or happens automatically.

comment Possible to see the “z-ordering” of windows?
After some deeper research, I've learned that I'm asking about the "z-order" of windows. I understand I can cycle through them. I'm looking for a way to "tabulate" the z-ordering of windows, in an attempt to diagnose why the z-ordering is randomly sporadically and randomly getting rearranged. Updating question now.

comment How to find last-added USB device in Windows?
Thanks. Just for future reference -- what should I be looking for within that registry key? I see a smorgasbord of GUID's, but seemingly no sort order (like by date).

comment How do I fix monitor detection in Windows 7?
Yeah, this doesn't work. I'm guessing the setting is purely for monitor detection within CCC. (...FYI, anyone who stumbles upon this -- I realize this is a 3+ year old thread)

comment Turning DisplayPort monitor off disables monitor completely
Great answer. However, what are the detection implications with covering up pin 19? I.e., with pin 19 covered, what does Windows "see" as happened to the monitor (I'm guessing pin 19 isn't a signal pulled high while connected)? More importantly, what will happen when the system reboots, if pin 19 is still covered? Will Windows not see the monitor?

Interesting. I know this is old, but would you mind expounding on this a bit more?
