comment What exactly is this lug for on a SATA cable?
IMHO: If you pull on the plug body it would twist the connector in the socket, the extension gives you a straight pull to remove it & reduces chance of damage to the socket.

comment Laptop Power Supplies- AMPS Confusion
@Paperlantern : I did not say that the battery ran the PC whilst on charge but that the 20V input would be regulated to provide the same voltage to the computer supply rails as the battery. I'd modify the answer but it seems clear enough to me already.

comment How to use multiple criteria with COUNTIF?
Is that not continental notation for 3.4 ? Here in Spain the , and . are transposed. 1.000,2 is just over a thousand.

comment Set mouse or keyboard button to simulate left click and hold or rapid left click repeating in Windows?
this may be built into Windows- windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/… -I can't check on this machine (so haven't made this an answer) but I'm sure the option to click on click off existed for users with difficulties using mice

comment HP Officejet printing with only magenta ink, but copies fine with black ink
Maybe a silly question but are the cartridges needing cleaning or changing. The copier may be using just the black cartridge and other docs printing using a mixture of the 3 primary colours, 2 of which are empty/ dried up. Some printers have a setting to always print text in black, i.e. use the black cartridge.
