comment Where is the original big list Linux command?
sed is a very flexible tool. Showing all its possible uses is mathematically (and therefore practically) impossible. That's a bit like saying "give me the complete list of uses for the word 'green'" - the scope of the question is too large to be useful.

comment Changing the number in Excel each time I print
Do you need to do all the printing in one run, or are you going to open the file, print once, close, repeat sometime later?

comment ubuntu bookmarks
If you are using the Gnome desktop (if you're not sure, then you are using it - it's default in Ubuntu), then it reads the bookmarks from there (and from nowhere else). Note that Linux treats filenames starting with a dot . as hidden - you'll need to press Ctrl+H in Nautilus (file explorer) to show them.

comment How can I recover a crashed hard drive?
Note that trying to spin up a physically broken drive could destroy it for good, esp. if there's a failure in the mechanical parts (e.g. heads). Note also that spin-up puts the most stress on all the drive's components (both electrically and mechanically). If "really need the data" means "I didn't archive the photos from my holiday", go ahead and try yourself. If you mean "I'm messed up three different ways if I don't recover it", leave it to the pros - chances are, they have more experience with data recovery.

comment Why install for “just me” as opposed to “everybody”?
@Shahin: it's more of a hint from the user to the installer: "I don't have admin rights, don't bother trying to write to %SYSTEM32%"

comment What exactly does this error code mean in Blue Screen of Death
1) the people at SuperUser might help you better; 2) this looks like a driver bug.

comment Internet doesn't work with Virtual Box Windows because dns server isn't found
Can you ping/access a numerical IP address (e.g. 8.8.8.8) from the VM? What is your virtual NIC setting (NAT,bridge,host-only,?)? Please post the output of running ipconfig /all in your VM's command line.

Indeed - GNU Image Manipulator Program is quite sufficient for most image editing tasks, its scary name notwithstanding.

This question would be answered better at superuser.com. It will move there soon.

comment how do i measure my internet speed?
Note also, that 920 kb (kilobits) = 115 kB (kilobytes); this is probably the maximum speed which may not be reachable under all circumstances (e.g. if a server is on a slow line or throttles its bandwidth)

comment Mysterious notepad.exe spawned every morning
Check the command line used to launch the file - this should be accessible in Process Explorer, in process details.
