comment Multiple result Excel Lookup with inserted rows for results
For that, your going to need macros, I'd record one where you do it manually then take a look, they are usually pretty simple.

comment What does compatibility option “Disable visual themes” do?
I used Luna as the 'theme engine' as that's when this option first appeared, and then it was more obvious what it was supposed to do: disable Luna so the app looked like it used to. Yea on 7/8 its disable Aero, but the idea is the same dont apply any theme engine, so that it looks like classic.

comment What does compatibility option “Disable visual themes” do?
@user1306322 ok, not sure about the latter, the primary goal is to make Windows behave like it used to, nothing to do with conserving resources.

comment Cant open command prompt from file menu
One option to add command prompt to the menus was an unofficial extra in the PowerToys package? I dunno if that will work on Win8 or if theres a Win8 equivalent.

comment Strong password tip: review
'mystron69assword' is not a strong password, its 3 words, if you can 'read' it as 3 words then so can the computer. Remember dictionary attack doesn't mean the actual Oxford English dictionary:)

comment Strong password tip: review
@user193655 thats because it has capitals and a number, its a very basic/quick, and not particularly useful measure of complexity. Any recognizable words (in any language) in a password means its not strong.

@Bulwersator easily, probably via JavaScript on the form submission. I pretty sure it was eBay where I found this out.

comment Strong password tip: review
If your using dictionary words (as in the example) then unfortunately not really. The concept of a based password that you append to is useful though. (Though some sites stupidly check for this!)
