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.

comment My website is slow only when connecting from certain IP addresses
@nullUser it sounds like you may need to give AT&T a call again. I doubt there's much you can do about it. Have you checked that there isn't some kind of QOS on your router that's causing it to slow down?

Thank you for disclosing your affiliation. It does looks like you do have previous contributions on Stack Exchange, which is great, but I would suggest re-reading the self promotion policy just to be safe. You haven't done anything wrong, but oftentimes when users see somebody whose only answers on the site are promoting something they made, they flag it as spam. It would also improve this answer if you could include a screenshot as an example. Thanks!

comment Windows activation with planned reinstall
@jpoh as I recall, you can use this to back up OEM Windows, yes. You can also do the reinstall from OEM media - see activation FAQ for more info.

comment Can my laptop's Hard Disk be cloned and loaded to another laptop?
@DanielRHicks OEMs actually use the same license key on all their machines. Activation is done by checking the BIOS for a cryptographic key that verifies the OEM license used matches the hardware.

comment Can I change requests to a certain domain to go to my local webserver?
"everywhere internally including outside of your LAN" doesn't really make much sense.

comment Can I change requests to a certain domain to go to my local webserver?
Do you have a DNS server internally? What's your network environment like? Is everything connected to a single router? If you have a DNS server it should be trivial to set this up, it's a very common thing to do.

comment Do video/graphics cards work at their “peak” output for connected monitors all of the time?
Make sure that you can actually run 4 monitors on it. Often cards can only output up to 2 DVI, HDMI, or VGA signals, and any additional signals must be displayport.
