comment Run as Administrator greyed out on shortcut
Does right click offer nothing at all? If you can select Properties, then Target will give you the command line that you need.

Can you start it from the command line by using an elevated command prompt? windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/…

comment Run as Administrator greyed out on shortcut
Of course you would prefer to set & forget "always run as administrator", but, until you get that working, you can right click the icon and select "run as administrator,", although you will have to do that every time that your want to run it.

comment Accessing a website through its IP address instead of hostname
Why would you ever want to do that? Dynamic IP addresses might not be as common as the once were, but they are still around.

comment Is it 'bad' to read of a drive while writing onto it? Can you read and write 'simultaneously'?
As the answers have said, there will be absolutely no damage. However, multiple access, whether reads, writes or a combination thereof will slow access times slightly as the drive heads will continually have to reposition.

Tanks for your help, @Useless. If you edit your answer to say "enable legacy boot in BIOS", I will award you the answer ;-)

comment Harddisk reinstalled - can data be recovered?
Before you do anything else - power off the machine and remove the drive. Even when Widows is "doing nothing" it is writing temp files & potentially overwriting your old Linux data. Put the drive into an external housing and try to recover using another PC. Whether it succeeds or not, you have no learned the value of regular backups & will be doing so in future, won't you? ;-)

comment Make a specific program see the file-system differently on Windows
I know that you asked for a general solution, but if you find that you have to accept a Winamp specific solution then hopefully you can just do a global edit on the log files - or is the data in a database? If so, which?

comment Make a specific program see the file-system differently on Windows
I don't know of any such, but one possibility might be to sandbox the desired program (Winamp or wherever) and to make the symbolic link in the sandbox (or use a virtual machine, just for the program). That sounds like a bit of effort, so only you can judge if it is worth it to you.

comment Laptop Turning On and Off
"every time the laptop turns itself off, the hard drive makes a click sound!" - remove your hard-drive and connect it externally to another PC. That will let you know if it is a drive problem or not.

comment my laptop is not detecting wifi
Are you using a web interface to change the SDID? (like 192.168.1.100? That will change it for now, but if you don't save it then of course it will revert on restart. Click the save button

comment Can I reuse this RAM in my other laptop?
1 Thanks. So long as you are sure that I can't damage the old laptop (what about that voltage comment from barlop?) then i will just stick it in & see if it gets recognized.

comment Can I reuse this RAM in my other laptop?
+1 Thanks. How do I check the voltage? Will it be printed on it? (I don't have it with me at the moment)

comment Thunderbird 3 “Reply to all”, also replies to myself
You missed out the most important part (see accepted answer). Without this it will not work ... Right-click on you account name Choose Settings... Click on Manage Identities... Add an Identity using the e-mail address for which Reply to All did not work correctly.
