comment Acrobat opens on wrong monitor without header visible
Ya, per-pdf settings don't work for me because I'm not opening the same ones over and over again. It's a lot of new PDFs every time.

comment Where are the task bar icons stored on Windows 10
So weird. It must be a hidden folder, because I can't click it through explorer, but I can type in the path and go straight there.

Have you tried powering off and then using F8 to boot into safe mode?

comment how may I batch download/upload multiple files from a web page directly to cloud storage?
What web page are you trying to download from, and what cloud storage are you trying to upload to? The answer could vary depending on the APIs available for your cloud storage especially.

comment Enable nView Desktop Manager on startup
Which executable should I use? As far as I can tell I can only access nView through the right-click menu on the desktop. C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\nview contains 3 .exe files: nwiz, nvAppBar, and nvTaskbar. None of those opens the same app I see when I right-click the desktop and select nView Desktop Manager.

comment Two different slide designs in a single PowerPoint presentation
Adding a new section does not allow you to use multiple slide designs. At least not in PPT 2013. Can you confirm the steps to enable multiple slide designs?

comment Format time in 24 hour format instead of AM/PM
You can certainly change the format of a cell in Excel without changing Windows settings.

comment Quickly change audio device in KDE
This looks like a great answer, but I don't think my install is using PulseAudio. I can use the commands, but the current default source and sink are not the same as what's shown in the Phonon menu. And changing them seems to have no effect.

comment Add shared OneDrive document to my drive
What I want is to do the same thing in OneDrive that I've been doing for years in Dropbox. When someone shares a file with me, I can add it to my own Dropbox and access the shared file that way, rather than having to click a link in my web browser every time I want to open the file.

Added some clarification to the question above.

comment Add shared OneDrive document to my drive
Maybe I needed to be more clear. I am collaborating on this document with several others, and would like to work on this version by accessing through my OneDrive.

comment Cannot connect to 192.168.1.1
Have you tried going to https://192.168.1.1? Some admin panels are set to work over https only.

comment Hangouts hides itself in system tray
@harrymc As mentioned in the EDIT at the bottom of the question, it appears to be any updated application. When Battle.net (Blizzard's game client) is updated, that moves from visible to hidden in the tray as well. It's easier to see the effects with Hangouts because it is frequently updated.

@harrymc Nope. I log in one password at a time just like the rest of you.

Please put the actual answer in your answer rather than just linking to an external article.

comment Command-Line File Content Search
The content of a .docx is not encrypted. The docx is a container (like a zip file) that contains multiple files. That's why you can't search them, not because it's encrypted. If you change the .docx to .zip, you can actually open the archive and view the contents in Windows Explorer.

comment Hangouts hides itself in system tray
@Natan I think you're right. I've noticed when other applications update that they hide themselves also. Must be the frequent, tiny updates to Hangouts that's breaking it.

comment Hangouts hides itself in system tray
Well, the profile trick seems to have made no difference. It's too bad, too, because I had high hopes.

comment Hangouts hides itself in system tray
Well, I'm not willing to let Chrome run as an administrator just to fix this, but I've given the profile trick a try. We'll give it a few days and see what happens.

comment Hangouts hides itself in system tray
As you can see from the question, it is not a problem with notifications, or space in the system tray, but a matter of applications setting themselves to "Only show notifications" when I want them to "Show icon and notifications"
