comment Remote Desktop Zooming
this is a frustratingly poor attempt by Microsoft to fix this issue. sure - it might work if you ALWAYS use your Surface to access a remote desktop and if you ALWAYS log out, but if you routinely switch between two different client machines without logging out like I do then this is far from being a solution. plus an awful lot of software doesn't work well with DWM zooming anyway

comment HiDPI Issues in Windows 8.1 (Chrome, Spotify)
to confirm - version 37 seems to work now. I dread to think how many people are using their nice shiny new hidpi laptops with blurry Chrome. I cannot believe this has lasted so long as an issue

comment HiDPI Issues in Windows 8.1 (Chrome, Spotify)
the words I want to use to describe this whole situation would surely get me banned from this site... I'm using version 36 on a brand new Surface Pro 3 and this registry key worked for me ONCE. it then started resetting it. i'm trying v37 now

comment How do you get Windows 7 to show time remaining in the battery meter?
it could be the computer has not yet figured out the battery specifications. my new Surface Pro 3 which is a premium machine made by Microsoft doesn't show the time. I'm hoping after a time it will though

but they're generally designed for a wi-fi hotspot where you get 5GB a month and not MB. I'm worried that there'll be lots of random services just using very small amounts of data and not even respecting the metering settings.

comment Extension for Chrome that redirects you to an existing tab if you try and open the same url
this is far from perfect. you have to electively say for each tab that you want it to be a singleton - and plus if you have multiple windows open it isn't able to jump to another window. it just closes the tab as you type the url. it this not technically possible? someone needs to solve this problem

...although the next day I had to completely delete and re-add the virtual adapter even though nothing had changed apart from reconnecting to a different network and back again. but now it's somewhat more stable
