comment How to start Chrome with only some extensions selectively enabled?
While Eduard's new user solution is very easy and elegant, I hope it's not the only option to do this. I'm looking for a way to do this too, and I don't want to create two profiles for that. Anyway, I thought that maybe that way to do this is to disable all extensions but AdBlock by default, and then somehow enable all the extensions when launching the regular Chrome shortcut, therefore making the custom Chrome shortcut open with only AdBlock enabled. However, I can't find any way to do this. Maybe the way to do this is by using two Preferences files, where each defines enabled extensions.

comment Getting Windows 8 Product ID through command-line
This returns a very long line of text (or a very messy text if I type wmic OS). Is it possible to get only the Product ID?

@MatthewScouten Well you should mention in your question exactly what you've already done. If you've already tried to delete the files and the registry values from your computer, please mention it.

comment How to enable glassy Aero theme in Windows 8?
You can enable an alternate Aero implementation provided by Microsoft in the Windows 8 release called AeroLite, but it does not bring back the old Aero Glass.

comment Change Windows Key shortcuts on Windows 8
When I click the first (official) SharpKeys link you provided I get ESET NOD32 Antivirus - Access denied - Access to the web page was blocked by ESET NOD32 Antivirus. The web page is on the list of websites with potentially dangerous content.

@SEARAS It also serves as a backup in case the link dies.

comment Where can I download Windows 8 Release Preview?
It's obvious that you can't get keys anymore, but maybe an official download link can still be useful.

comment Looking at the screen in Windows 8 hurts my eyes
Not a real solution but can be useful: f.lux (I'm using this in Windows 7 too). Not sure it supports Windows 8 yet, though.

The thing is, even the HTC headphones that came with the device, don't go in all the way. And even with them I experience those noises!
