comment How to enable confirmation alert before closing chrome tabs?
Where exactly is this option? I can't find it under the hamburger icon, nor in Settings. Not sure if it's been moved in Chrome v45 for Windows.

comment Chrome: warn before closing specific URLs?
Install Tampermonkey and write some JS to add a confirm dialog when the tab is closing.

comment Postpone install of Windows 10 for 1 month?
In the end I kept getting nagged to postpone for 3 days, every day. I did this about 3 days on the run. The 4th day my PC decided to reboot by itself. As all my running programs were closing, I got another nag screen saying "58 mins left til upgrade". By the time it rebooted it wanted to upgrade and there was no turning back! Ah well, I'm on Windows 10 now and (touch wood) no problems.

Will try net stop wuauserv and disabling the service startup from Automatic to Disabled and report back - thanks!

comment Postpone install of Windows 10 for 1 month?
@magicandre1981 That question asks about permanently not installing it. I just want to delay it. If I go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUp‌​grade\State\OSUpgradeStateTimeStamp it shows a date 2-3 days ago, not the 'postpone til' date. This isn't a duplicate!

comment How do I stop the Windows 8 restart clock; '15 minutes' and counting…?
@jdm The countdown dialog remains. You can get rid of the nag screen by killing a process named something like wuauctl from the Task Manager. net stop wuauserv works great!

comment Can a technician access my PC at any time?
@DetlevCm This is one advantage of TeamViewer. VNC doesn't show a notification.

comment How might I print onto 3×3 sticky notes?
@fixer1234 Fair enough. I've had issues in the past with certain labels peeling off the backing whilst being printed to on a laser; and have had to remove/disassemble their fusers a couple of times to get pieces of labels out, so as not to ruin the fuser/printer. Since then I use the manual feed tray whenever I print to labels, which seems to mitigate the problem.

@fixer1234 I take it you've done this with an inkjet printer? I wouldn't want to risk it with a laser.

comment Save processes priority settings?
Prio doesn't seem to work for me in Win 7 x64, even after a reboot.
