The read-only attribute only prevents from modifications but not from deletions.

comment Force programs in the taskbar to be in the same row
Of course, there would be situations where not all rearrangements could be satisfied. Even if no such program seems to exist, thanks for your help!

comment Force programs in the taskbar to be in the same row
I've set TaskbarGlomming to 1 and even restarted my PC, but the behavior is still the same as before. In addition, I've also tried all the options in 7+ Taskbar Tweaker (à la trial & error).

comment Force a file to be opened using an application in the same drive (USB)
It's called Autorun.inf, but this feature is disabled unless you activate it yourself.

comment Is there a way to repeat the first two rows of a table as a header on each page in Word?
FYI, in Word 2013 you don't even need to select the rows at the same. Click on the first row and activate Repeat row as table header. Click on the second row and do the same. Repeat as often as needed. Of course the headers must be consecutive starting with the first row (e.g. row 3 can't be a header while row 2 isn't.).

@Alex softwarerecs.stackexchange.com would be a better fit than Webapps.SE.

comment Turning all combo boxes into searchable input fields
/Dave You mentioned that 'unexpected behavior' due to arbitrary input could occur. I would limit the selection to the original select options. But forgive me my nitpicking. /Alex and/or @BrockAdams: Do you plan to publish it here? I'd also be interested in using such a userscript.

Have you looked at your hosts file?

comment Turning all combo boxes into searchable input fields
I understand your point, but I think the OP rather wants to have a text input + list, so the input acts as a filter. Coding a userscript providing such a functionality is definitely possible.

comment Why does Windows 8 application search no longer match substrings?
I can only see the second option (Don't use the index...) in the first fieldset "How to search". Does anybody else experience this behavior? I have Windows 8.1.
