comment can you make your terminal so that it times all the commands except common ones?
I haven't done this outside of scripting, so I don't know if alias is smart enough, but but it might be a good idea to use time \cp instead of time cp so it forces it to use the system cp command instead of the alias.

comment “Send to: Mail recipient” context menu not working
Yes. If you have Outlook or Live Mail installed, it will hook into those programs. It's odd, and one of those omissions in the Mail app that people complain about. However, it's just the way things stand, right now.

revised Why can't I open ANY web page with the EPM box unchecked in IE10 on Windows 7 x64?
It's not "enhanced <something> mode" but "Enable Protected Mode"

comment Windows 8 keeps removing some start screen shortcuts I make
If you tap "All Apps" in the Start screen (swipe from top or bottom to reveal it), you should see the shortcuts. Do you?

comment Volume Control Windows 7
I'd recommend asking your teacher or school's computer administrator to try and fix the issue, if you really need access to volume. In most cases, it's better to work within the system than around it, if possible.

comment Disconnecting wireless clients from the router during the upgrade process
Even though it is a TCP connection, if the WiFi connection drops during transfer, it can cause the firmware upgrade to fail, and when updating firmware on any device, that can potentially brick the device, since there isn't a way to recover if its firmware code is only partially written. It's like upgrading Windows, and finding some core system files are corrupted, preventing it from booting. Except there isn't a way to restore a backup because the code that does the install is in the OS, which is broken.

comment Securing Windows 8 against changing utilman.exe to avoid login bypass?
I'd say this isn't so much an exploit as it is simply mucking with Windows after having gained access. An exploit would grant a restricted user full rights to a machine. You can't perform this "exploit" without Administrator rights in the first place. It's a fun trick, but that's all it is.

comment Why does Windows default to MS Word to edit .html files?
@GaneshR. I would too, but Notepad is at least installed on any Windows default installation, and works as an HTML editor. I'm sure lots of people have their own preferred text file editor, though.
