comment How can I create a shell context menu item that takes multiple files as arguments?
Works like a charm, thanks. Is there any way to associate the singleinstance application with any file type, without adding it to the file associations for each file type individually? For example, I currently use DiffMerge for comparing things like XML files, SQL scripts, config files, *.cs files, .gitignore files, plus others.

comment Method to get windows left open on second monitor which is off back to primary monitor?
This seems to be the best answer for moving a dialog box, like the master password dialog displayed when opening a KeePass database. Win + Arrow doesn't work on such a dialog, with or without pressing Alt + Space first. Win + Shift + Arrow works perfectly, on both the dialog and normal application windows.

comment Method to get windows left open on second monitor which is off back to primary monitor?
While this works for regular application windows it doesn't work for dialog windows. For example, I just tried this trick when opening a KeyPass2 database. KeyPass2 opens a dialog box for the user to enter the master password for the database before it opens the main application. The dialog stays stubbornly on the wrong (off) monitor. Once I entered the password and clicked ok the main app opened and I was able to use this trick to move the main app window to the correct monitor.

comment Visual Studio 2010 Graphic Artifacts
I had a similar problem in Visual Studio 2013, only not as bad as described in the post above, and the fix described above worked for me. In VS 2013 go to Tools > Options > Environment > General and uncheck "Automatically adjust visual experience based on client performance" then uncheck "Use hardware graphics acceleration if available".
