@Fly_Trap absolutely - I'm adding an image to a new answer for this - it's important

waiting is hard - especially when it's a server at a hosting company that should have no issue with downloading... trying to wait....

comment Chrome Extension for Switching Locale (Accept-Languages)
note: you have to then click on the 'Display Google Chrome in this Language' button and completely restart Chrome. I found certain extensions were still running in the background and I needed to go to Task Manager to kill all Chrome processes. You can test the date format with this fiddle (switch between US and UK English) jsfiddle.net/vRf5B/42

comment Driveimage XML : unable to retrieve drive layout
You can do this in Windows Disk Utility program but need to first delete all partitions. You have to actually right click on where it says 'Disk 3' (to the left of the graphical representation). At first glance it doesn't look like it's clickable but clicking on the graphical disk won't give you the menu.

comment changing mobile backup file location
am I the only one who thinks this is utterly pathetic on Apple's part not to allow me to change the location. With 128GB phones and 256GB laptop SSDS why do they still have their head in the sand on this one?

can you elaborate what app - and do you mean it just changes the native resolution of your screen?

comment Remote Desktop Zooming
I can scale DOWN on the Surface by resizing the window and it bitmap scales, but it won't let me scale beyond 100%

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
