comment How to show icon for a window only in the task bar of the screen where it resides?
@ncdownpat I added an image that shows the menu from Win 8. Let's hope that it clarifies the question. Thanks for the hint.

Close-suggesting user - care to elaborate? I'd like to improve the question if possible.

comment Making VLC start with a pre-set size and position
@DavidPostill Sadly, that's not it. I did mention that I went through the settings (although, there are days when one is foggy-minded, so I don't blame anybody for assuming it might be it). Setting that flag off starts the player in a minimal window (only controls are visible, no actual video). So the question isn't a duplicate. I'm looking for a fixed size (or at least width and preferably also the position) of the window each time I start up a playback. Ideas?

comment How can I use Bing or Google Maps to show the traveled path?
@DavidPostill Indeed. However, in my case, I'll just need to prepare a few routes and that's it. I'll be posting the same trip over and over again for every new member of the group. So manual handling will do for now.

@DanielB Would you mind posting your comment as a reply? It deserves voting. Also, you'll have the opportunity to elaborate on it supposedly being sucky. The same goes for the link to GpsBabel. Good stuff, mate. Get upvoted for it!

I'm using Endomondo now but I used RunKeeper before so I'm fairly familiar with it. My preference would be not to need to convert as @DanielB mentions but, since he's warning that it sucks, I might go with your suggestion. At any rate - I have KML and GPX as googleables now (wasn't aware of these formats before) so I should be able to resolve the rest myself. +1 for the links. I'm guessing something like that applies to Endomondo as well.

@Mokubai Didn't know about My Tracks application. And Google Earth is Google Maps, isn't it? Or maybe I'm confusing something. In Google Maps, I have this icon and when I click on it I can see the aerial view of fly imaginery. That's Google Earth, isn't it? Also, you might post your comment as a reply so it can get voted on.

comment How can I use Bing or Google Maps to show the traveled path?
@DavidPostill Exactly. I intend to show that on my computer. The phone is only a collector of the information. In fact, I can even be open to manually click-in the points after I've got back home. If you disregard the part with the phone, do you still find the question off-topic? If so, would you mind recommending a better site? (It won't do with the Andorid related one, in such case.) I also edited the question to make it more on-topic.

@Karan I'd like you to add the comments and explanations here to your reply. I've already given you +1 because I know you're going to do that, hehe. Thanks, mate!

@Ramhound Not a duplicate. That answer isn't helpful in my case. Please see the thing that Karan says. I think that's the correct answer.

@Karan So if I get you correctly, the Sleep option I have isn't the sleep it used to be, right? It's been enhanced to sleep-hibernate. Is that what you're saying? How can I control the time between falling asleep and going hibo?

@Karan What's InstantGo? Is it something that substitutes hibernate option? How do I activate it? I'd really like my computer not to drain the battery while "sleeping".

I have no such option. I only have the ones that I mention in the question. Any suggestions?

Is it only me who finds it weird that it says chrome in your URL for accessing settings in FireFox?!

comment How to use bookmarks as shorthand for URLs?
@Ramhound It seems that some part of the conversation is removed. I only see screener's comments. What's been said? Also, as you can see the edition, perhaps that'll shed some more clarity on my issue?

Please see the edit in my question. I have no such moreish-thingy on my foxy. Or am I going blind/retarded?! I quadruple-chekced that I've got the latest version...

comment What is a mouse-only way to minimize all the windows except the active one?
@random I didn't say it's a hidden feature. I just haven't ever seen it before. None of the people I've shown it too neither. So either I need to keep myself more up to date or you need to browse youTube less. :)

@jpmc26 Also, I just re-read the question and, actually, I do define what's meant by cool. Nevertheless, you're making a valid point so I edited the question to obey the rules more obviously.

@random I wouldn't find them, probably. Also, one of them isn't even about Windows but Gnome (even if one of the replies talks about Windows).
