comment Hide Win 8.1 “tip” about “Switch between apps”?
Hey @rudolph you flagged saying your answer was edited with "spam keywords and hyperlinks" but I'm not seeing any recent edits. Is it possible your computer got some kind of toolbar or plugin installed that's adding spam links to pages?

comment How do I press Ctrl+Alt+Delete in VirtualBox?
@Pacerier I had 826 reputation points on May 13th, 2010, and at that time suggested edits weren't a thing, so there would not have been any edit button available. Back then the only way to view source was to know the URL to see the source view, there was no button for it exposed in the UI.

@Matt if you read all of the comments and answers here you'll see that's already been very thoroughly covered.

comment Why can’t Windows 98 be installed on latest computers?
I think the better question is, why are you trying to install Windows 98?

Do you have any keys on the keyboard you don't often use?

This isn't an answer, it should be a comment.

comment USB flash drive not working or is appearing as an empty disk drive, Disk Management reports “No Media” with 0 bytes size
@JakeGould ultimately you should respect the wishes of the person who originally wrote a post if there's disagreement about an edit (unless we're talking something completely inappropriate). I agree though that heading formatting shouldn't be abused to make text stand out (it should be used for headings in long posts), and I think your edits were appropriate.

comment Can I configure Firefox to only show images when purposefully clicked on?
I have edited your question pretty heavily to ensure that it remains an on-topic question for this site. There is no way to ensure that you will block all adult content, so the only solution is the one you already identified: to only allow content to be shown when you specifically click on it. I have therefore changed the question to fit that. If you'd like you can further edit it, just make sure it remains focused on the technical content, not your motivations for doing so.

@Akumaburn this community has specific expectations regarding advertising and self-promotion. Specifically, we require that you disclose any affiliation (including affiliate links) to links you post, and require that posts with such links do not comprise the majority of your contributions. If you aren't interested in abiding by those expectations, you may either choose not to participate, or may find your account suspended.

@Akumaburn I would counter that the voting system is doing a very good job at identifying posts with potential problems. Your perception of "the truth" seems to be tainted by your pursuit of personal profit under the guise of an answer.

@Akumaburn of course not. Anybody can downvote for any reason they want to. In fact it's quite common to downvote posts that look like spam - like this one.

@Akumaburn that's still spamming. You could provide a regular link, and then separately have a discount link that is clearly labeled as being an affiliate link that you personally benefit from. See our expected behavior regarding self promotion.

comment Something took control over Notepad++?
I have removed argumentative comments that did not address the question of "what is going on with Notepad++". This answer explains exactly why the behavior the question-asker observed occurred. If you are interested in debating the morality of the situation, I suggest you create a chat room to do so, or better yet, take it up with the developers of Notepad++ directly. Please keep all future comments focused on the question. Off-topic questions will be deleted, and the post may be locked if arguments continue.

In the future you can just click the "edit" link below your post to fix the formatting after posting.

comment How to add manually to and manage AutoComplete list, in MS Outlook 2013?
@LawArea51Proposal it appears that this answer does explain your first point, how to delete specific emails from the autocomplete list. The bit about clearing it completely is additional information that could be useful to other visitors. Perhaps somebody else will come along with a solution to your second request.

@akumaburn while genuine recommendations are appreciated, embedding affiliate links through URL shorteners and posing them as regular answers is not acceptable and is considered spamming. Please refrain from this behavior in the future. I have edited the link to be a regular link.

comment Is disk read/write speed affected by processor architecture?
Just because the answer is obvious to some of us doesn't mean the question is invalid or off-topic.

comment Focus IE window in powershell
@GiantDuck in the future please do not cross-post questions to multiple Stack Exchange sites. Select the site which best fits your question before asking it. If you ask on the wrong site, either wait for it to be migrated, or delete it yourself and re-ask on the appropriate site. Thanks.
