comment I am supposed to get download speed of 150KB/s but I am getting 10MB/s for some sites. How come?
I think @AEonAX means who your ISP is, what geographical region you're in, if it's cable or DSL, etc.

My completely unfounded hunch is that your ISP may have a YouTube cache server on their network, and for torrents there may be peers on the same ISP. Your ISP may not be limiting in-network traffic, which could allow those sources to load faster than the internet at large.

comment Can Excel show a formula and its result simultaneously?
This requires re-copying the formula every time you change it. When changing a spreadsheet frequently, it would be too easy for the copied formulas to get out of sync with the real formulas.

comment How do I manage My Computer?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is asking how to solve a human problem (organization) with a technological solution. No software can decide for you what files are important to you personally.

@cybermonkey first of all, you're on Super User not Stack Overflow. Second, music2myear did not "steal" anything from you; you didn't even answer the question. This site is built on collaboration and cooperation. You offered a link; he turned it into an actual useful answer. Just because a question has been answered before on other sites doesn't mean we can't also provide an answer, and perhaps even make the answer easier to read and understand.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, this has nothing at all to do with what I'm asking.
