comment How to undo an accidental drag and drop
Sorry I can’t help with Outlook, I only use Outlook Express. (I have occasionally had similar experiences of accidentally dragging messages in OE around, and found that the easiest way to find them was to use the Find Message command useful; though it does help when moving folders around.)

Slowed it down a little more. (Why does it always seem too fast?)

comment How to undo an accidental drag and drop
@Moab, the other answers gave the base information. They were lacking the warning and preventative steps, and all three were the same, so it was pointless to edit just one (or all three) to add the extra. (And it was asked just one hour ago. Has computer/Internet time gotten so fast that one hour is “late”?) o.O

comment How do I resolve the error message “USB Device Not Recognized”?

comment Which Operating System should my elderly parents use to check their webmail?
Put the system behind a router with built-in firewall, and give them a little bit of computer-security education—even 10 minutes should be sufficient—and they should be fine (better off than a surprisingly large number of people anyway—botnets with millions of zombies‽ What are those people downloading viruses on purpose‽ o.O).

I find a (properly timed) animated GIF works better than numerous individual pics.

comment What is a simple regular expression to rename multiple files?
@ChristianMann, I used ren which is the same as move (which should be the same as mv in other OSes). I don’t know what will work on Mac though.

If you’re going to edit, then edit it right; don’t just remove the gratitude line and leave the rest.

Parse what? An event log file? o.O You would need to access the event, not the file.
