comment Windows: How to add batch-script action to Right Click menu
Here's an answer that talks about using the right-click Send To with files: stackoverflow.com/a/6854941/550712. That answer references this Microsoft article: support.microsoft.com/kb/310270.

comment Windows: How to add batch-script action to Right Click menu
It's helpful to see the step-by-step screen shots in that article. However I think the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell referenced there is for when you click on a blank area, not on a folder. The answer by @RobertSchmidt uses HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell which is when you click on a folder (directory). See this MSDN article.

comment How to fix broken taskbar icons in Windows 7
An anonymous user edited my answer to add "This works for Win 8.1 as well, just checked." Doesn't that kind of update belong in a comment? I have not checked it so I don't feel comfortable signing my name to it.

comment Is there a way to use Volume Shadow Copy on Windows 8?
Interesting, that's there in Windows 8 but gone in 8.1. You can still use wbadmin at the command line in 8.1, and you can schedule a task to run it, e.g. pureinfotech.com/2013/10/24/….

comment Ghostscript PDF/A conversion fails validation
Harry, I appreciate your being a discussion partner on this question and pointing me to the Ghostscript bug site. I've marked your answer as helpful and created my own answer with the technical specifics I eventually worked out. I'm a bit confused about the bounty system. I was going to ask what you considered fair in this situation, but after reading the FAQ, it seems you may automatically get half the points (which is fine) and I'll lose the other half? The FAQ doesn't seem to cover the situation where the bounty drew an answer that was helpful but the accepted answered is by the asker.
