comment Wget - Difficulty Excluding Domains and Directories
For some reason, that fails to prevent the creation of twitter.com and www.facebook.com, regardless of whether I specify exclusion of e.g., twitter.com or /twitter.com. The twitter.com folder is created at the top level, i.e., at the same directory level as the desired download folder. It also fails if I specify twitter.com or /twitter.com with exclude_directories in wgetrc.

comment Excel or Batch - Trying to Automate Text Correction (Many Changes; One or More Characters Each)
This answer appears to have the best potential. I did not use it at the time, but will refer back to it the next time I return to this particular kind of task. Thanks!

comment Hide or Delete the User Home Folder in Windows Explorer Navigation Pane
Sorry. In the navigation pane in Windows Explorer, I see Desktop at the top. Below it, I see five first-level subfolders: Ray, Computer, Network, Control Panel, and Recycle Bin. I don't want the Ray folder to be visible, and I don't want it to be the subfolder that is opened when I start a new session of Windows Explorer.

comment Hide or Delete the User Home Folder in Windows Explorer Navigation Pane
When I click on Desktop in WinEx, I see "Ray" listed as a System Folder. Not sure if that's germane. I do have "Delete" as a context menu option there; just not sure if using that option would make life unbearably interesting.

comment Hide or Delete the User Home Folder in Windows Explorer Navigation Pane
I've already done that. Maybe I did it in a different way. That hasn't prevented the User Home Folder from appearing in the WinEx navigation pane. When new WinEx instances open, they do open in the desired folder -- but as a subfolder under the User Home Folder, which I don't want.

I tried it. It doesn't seem to be working for this. It worked for some of the other folders, though.

But it looks like the user has to manually select one operation at a time. And several of those operations are just TRIM. For some operations, it might be a little easier than just writing a formula to do the same thing, but for $30 on an infrequent task, I'll probably pass.

I think Word would have a couple of drawbacks for this purpose. One is that I'm not sure how the solution would be automated with a visible table of conversions. The other is that, in one application, I will be writing batch files to rename files. The command lines will need to contain both the "before" and the "after," whereas I think an automated solution in Word would tend to replace everything. It would change the "before," hence my batch commands would not work.

I should have typed that example as code. I meant "Input" to begin one line and "Output" to begin the next. Also, I see my HTML code - ampersand pound 39 semicolon - got converted to an apostrophe.
