comment laptop usb mouse freezing
@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.

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.

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.

comment I am supposed to get download speed of 150KB/s but I am getting 10MB/s for some sites. How come?
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 I'm not the one who deleted your first comment, but I don't disagree with whoever did.

comment change date format on Win 8.1 lock screen
@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.
