comment My fingers are cold when using my computer - solutions?
+1. A hand warmer treats the symptom, whereas exercise treats the cause - and will make you healthier. As someone who prefers being indoors and finds exercise extremely boring, what worked for me was to buy an exercise bike; now I can be fitter in the comfort of my own home, and watch TV at the same time!

comment How do I get rid of corrections in Word document?
Accepting all changes is also useful if you will be making changes yourself, and/or forwarding the document (still in Word format) to anyone else.

comment Backtick and tilde keys - Why the switch?
@jtbandes: Your comment about EU keyboards is incorrect; Sam is correct. The key to the left of 1 is '`' (backtick); pressing shift gives '¬'. Also @Macha: this doesn't appear to answer your question, so why is it the accepted answer?

comment What application do you use to play and manage music on your computer?
I use iTunes on the PC because I find it intuitive (much more so than Media Player), and updating podcasts and synching my iPod all happen automatically.

comment Indenting paragraphs in Microsoft Word
If applying this to a new document, do as splattne suggests, then for Paragraph1, set the "Style for following paragraph" to be Normal (or whatever the standard style is). That way, you only have to set the style for the first paragraph, and after you hit Return, the style for the next and subsequent paragraphs will automatically be Normal.

comment Indenting paragraphs in Microsoft Word
In that last sentence, do you mean "and apply it to the first paragraph of each section"?

comment How do I send email in plain text rather than HTML in my email client?
I don't have the power to do that, but if someone who does would like to, then feel free.
