comment How do I insert a new row in Excel via the keyboard?
When you say "to insert a row" in option 1, does it go above or below (on mobile, can't check) [should also be mentioned in answer].

comment Why do file URLs start with 3 slashes?
@Pacerier while that would save even more bytes, I wouldn't have recommended that. A single h is not clear on what it means unlike http (which is clear). Also, take ftp and file for example. If we use your idea of using the first letter of the acronym only, they'd both be f. Sure, the stuff after the protocol would remove the ambiguity (is it a file path of web path), but that would be needlessly complex

comment Can a file system's logical structure (including symlink targets) be represented in a single lightweight file (non-binary)?
NOTE: This tree command is the Linux version. The Windows version still only outputs the simple "tree".

comment Downloading software without bloatware
Worth mentioning Windows 10 will come with some kind of package manager outside of the Windows Store.

comment How to stop animated gifs in Google Chrome?
It's worth mentioning that this feature would be useful because GIF heavy sites (meme sites) lag the browser. Especially on mobile.

comment How do I create a GIF screencast in Windows?
I'm surprised at the color posterization quality considering it's a GIF.

comment When data gets deleted from your Recycle Bin, what happens to it?
Windows Vista, 7, and 8 (and 8.1) use $RECYCLE.BIN. @Riking You're thinking of Nautilus for Linux; it uses .Trashes.

comment Why is my computer really slow despite of having a considerable amount of free memory?
Also, ditch WinZip (and WinRAR) for 7-Zip. Not only is it free, it's open-source.

comment Why do file URLs start with 3 slashes?
I am well aware of those, but I personally only use them in CSS. When writing HTML, I use the protocol also. No real reason really. Except maybe because when HTML5+CSS3 first became "big" a few years ago, almost all the sites I looked at were like that.

comment How to check if two DVDs are exactly the same?
@Keltari Windows 8*. Correct, but you still need to enable Powershell. Your original comment is correct. I was just confused by it at 7 in the morning.
