comment How do you turn back on the menu-bar permanently having installed the emacs-starter-kit?
Thanks Drew, I ended up doing the same thing through M-x customize-variable menu-bar-mode as suggested in an answer to the issue I posted on their Github page

comment Windows 8.1 — disable touch screen?
-1. The question includes a screenshot of the control panel item you direct us to. As you can see there is no obvious way to disable the finger as input. I see the same as the questioner; on the touch tab shown in the screenshots, where would you "Disable use your finger as an input"?

comment Is there a way to save a Microsoft Word document so that it automatically opens in outline view?
Sounds great Mark, but when I set "allow opening a document in 'Draft View'" under Word's Advanced -> General option it has no effect on existing or new documents. They fail to open again in either draft or outline. Hopefully this works for others though
