comment Print screen with cursor in Windows 7
What a hidden gem. Unfortunately it draws a big green border around the active window, which obscures any tooltip that lies partially outside the window area. For example, you can't use it to cleanly capture Firefox's Open Containing Folder tooltip.

comment Why does restarting a computer fix things?
Thanks for the link to Raymond Chen's article. I don't think your summary accurately reflects the author's views. He doesn't say it should be this way. He concludes: "So it's not that Windows has to restart after replacing a file that is in use. It's just that it would rather not deal with the complexity that results if it doesn't. Engineering is a set of trade-offs." It makes me wonder: What trade-offs did the Linux developers choose? (Linux is noted for requiring a restart less frequently.) Do they deal with the complexity, or do they just break things?

comment How can I solve this error I get when I commit changes on an SVN repository from the Ubuntu terminal?
To reproduce: sudo rm -f ~/.nano_history (remove the file), sudo nano somefile (edit some file as root), ^K sometext (search for some text), ^X (exit), nano somefile (edit some file as you). You'll see Error reading /home/ssylee/.nano_history: Permission denied. nano creates .nano_history to store your search history. The file belongs to root if it is created during a sudo nano session.

comment Is there a Shortcut for “Mark all messages as read” in Outlook?
When you have an inbox with 25,000 messages it's hard to scroll to the last message. It does work, though.

comment Is there a Shortcut for “Mark all messages as read” in Outlook?
This is slow in a large inbox, but works. I have 25,545 items in my inbox and 4,778 unread items. Outlook became unresponsive for a minute when I pressed CTRL+A to select all. When I pressed CTRL+Q to mark all as read, a dialog appeared for a minute to show a progress bar. After another minute, I have no unread emails. Thanks!

Some keyboards have a menu key that simulates a context-click. It's usually between right ALT and right CTRL. It looks like a cursor hovering over a menu.

Which context menu contains the item 'Mark all as read'? I can see a 'Mark as read' item when I highlight one or many messages and bring up the context menu. Is that what you mean?

comment Is there a Shortcut for “Mark all messages as read” in Outlook?
Sorry, I don't understand this. Do I have to press three keys together? I have only one E key. I tried holding ALT and pressing E twice while focused on the message pane but nothing happened.

@JasonMArcher Can you post an example using Set-Content? I don't believe that Set-Content is a drop-in replacement for Out-File.

comment How can I allow non-administrators to use shutdown.exe?
+1 This helped to solve a 'Using Windows Server 2012 as a workstation' problem. How do I turn off the computer as a user rather than an administrator? By adding the Users group to the 'Shut down the system' right!
