comment How to monitor a folder for changes, and execute a command if it does, on Windows?
@bfred.it Belvedere does have its issues, but it worked for me. FolderMonitor looks like a good solution too. I think it's the one the user asking the question ended up with.

comment Is it possible to achieve the Opera 12 interface with Firefox or Chrome?
Welcome to SuperUser. Is there a reason why you need to upgrade from Opera 12? If you like Opera 12, and it still meets your needs, you could always stick with it.

comment Quickly toggling between Java versions in Internet Explorer 8
@Doc I wonder if a similar approach could work with Windows, setting the system JRE prior to running Internet Explorer. There's a GUI buried in the Control Panel, but doing it via command line would be feasible.

comment Inserting rows from an Excel spreadsheet as paragraphs in a Word document
Very interesting idea. Too bad each question must be specified. Putting everything in one cell definitely makes it easier to manage. Thanks for the suggestion.

comment Inserting rows from an Excel spreadsheet as paragraphs in a Word document
@AndiMohr Yes, the query is in my control. If the questions, answers, and comments are all on the same row, is it possible to do the merge?

comment Notepad++ saving to a full hard drive
That bug description looks like my problem exactly. I guess if it's a known bug and it's still open, then at this time, there is no solution. Thanks for the info.

comment IF Function in Excel not accepting commas
The screenshot looks like it has semi colons between the arguments instead of commas. Try semi colons.

comment IF Function in Excel not accepting commas
Are you currently focused on the cell with the formula in it? When you press Enter, does the formula evaluate?

comment Word 2010: Mail merge to a table in a schema other than dbo
I'm leaning toward this being a bug in the way Word 2010 does mail merging. I'm posted the question to the Microsoft Community form as well ( answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2010-word/… ).

comment Word 2010: Mail merge to a table in a schema other than dbo
I tried manually changing the <meta name=Table content=CirculationForComment> to include the schema name. <meta name=Table content=Permit.CirculationForComment> does not work because the mail merge code automatically puts double-quotes around the table name.

comment Conversation clean up is greyed out
@AdamV Our admins really discourage cached mode. The home drives are networked, and the profiles are synced with a server, so caching the files would increase the network traffic. The local filesystem is frozen, so that's not an option either. Even if the files could be local, moving the mail out of the Exchange server removes some of the security management abilities from the admins. Too bad this can't be done without cached mode.

comment Refreshing Windows Media library by command line
@amiregelz Tried the suggestions there, but unfortunately, I still had to manually open and close Windows Media Player to trigger a refresh.

comment Modify value of a cell using the old value as part of the new one?
I tired both #0.000,"%" (@MikeFitzpatrick style) and #0"."000"%". Both seem to format in the percent sign. Make sure you have double-quotes around the percent sign.

comment Lenovo G560 screen brightness control doesn't work
Is the brightness adjusted using a special keyboard combination? It may be a keyboard driver or software of some sort.

comment can the location of my employment block the use of my hot spot?
My workplace is like a Faraday cage. Steel frame, reflective windows. My phone loses all signal inside. Yes, it's possible they are blocking your hot spot with some sort of jammer, but it's more likely the building is a steel cage.

If you're just looking for the duration, and nothing else, a simple stopwatch might do the trick.

Are the screenshots all from the same application? If so, it might be that application.
