comment How to disable taskbar transparency in Windows 8 desktop?
@Pacerier You don't need to. Just double-click the theme file to activate it. This is so easy I don't see the value in working around the system protections. Why do you need to? Are you trying to automate this step?

@Pacerier You copy the file, edit it, then double-click the edited one. The double-click replaces the system file with the new one (imports it). As mentioned above, you can't edit it directly (it is a protected system file).

comment Equivalent of Linux `touch` to create an empty file with PowerShell?
@jsalonen IOW if you reword the question to 'how to create an empty file in powershell' I'd remove my downvote, but leave *nix touch command out of it. :)

comment Equivalent of Linux `touch` to create an empty file with PowerShell?
@jsalonen Use *nix touch on an existing file it will update the last write time without modifying the file, see the links from @amiregelz. This question has a high google ranking for powershell touch, I wanted to alert copy/paste-ers that just this half of it can destroy data, when *nix touch doesn't. See @LittleBoyLost answer that handles when the file already exists.

Downvoted the question - both features are only a few more lines of code, just implement both, not just half, esp. when the missing half other command is so dangerous.

comment Tool for automatic Windows file sync, no GUI?
That's not true. Did you look at robocopy /mon and /mot? technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733145(v=ws.11).aspx If you give exact folder names I could give you example command.

comment Tool for automatic Windows file sync, no GUI?
Robocopy options allow copying only new/changed files (no delta within files), and there is an option to continuously poll for changes, with configurable poll interval (seconds or hours depending on your expected rate of change). See serverfault.com/a/200470/33647

I'd rather edit the theme file, which seems slightly more efficient, and less buggy than changing it on the fly via APIs.

This might have been true at the time it was written, but it is clear there are solutions listed in other answers, so down-voting so it is no longer a top answer.
