@The Muffin Man. Add your commands at the end of the batch file and it will execute them after elevation.

comment Force IE9 to always start InPrivate browsing mode?
Didn't work for me for iE9. I had to create the 'Safety\PrivacIE' keys as they didn't already exist, but had no effect. I also tried the key 'FilteringMode' as mentioned here.

comment Disable page bounce effect in Google Chrome?
Embarrassing... I installed the Smooth Scroller extension years ago and forgot about it. Never re-installed it after rebuilding my machine a couple of times since but of course Chrome just re-installs your extensions when you log in. Disabled now.

comment Where does Outlook 2007 store opened attachments temporarily?
@Zach. Run 'regedit' and follow the folder structure in the path above (i.e. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office... etc.)

comment Disable highlighting around braces in sublime text 2
Odd. I only see the underlined brackets on Windows (which you can turn off using "match_brackets": false). Whereabouts is your cursor in your screnshot? It looks like you've selected the quotes...

You'd be better off adding that line to the User settings (Preferences > Settings - User) rather than global so that they're not overwritten by updates.

Couldn't find an entry for this in the BIOS but got a DP to DVI adaptor (about £7) and worked straight off :¬)

comment Integrated VGA and DisplayPort to power dual monitors?
Something like that would be ideal but the only ones I can find for sale are the 3 port, full height ones, e.g. goo.gl/2bUKB

comment Integrated VGA and DisplayPort to power dual monitors?
@Michael. The only half height ones I've been able to find have one port. The 'low profile' cards with 2 ports all seem to have a full height back plate.

comment Is there any benefit to plugging a USB 2.0 device into a USB 3.0 port?
Some USB 2 devices have problems when connected via a hub. Would be interesting to know if they have fewer problems if the hub is plugged into a USB 3 socket with its higher power rating.
