comment How do I securely store and manage 180 passwords?
@Pacerier: Because I prefer a solution where I can control every aspect of it. Also, KeePass is 100% open source, I read the source code and I've developed plugins for it. I do not trust LastPass the same way and I don't think a solution like that should have "premium" features you need to unlock by paying money.

comment Log %CPU by Process over time
@Pacerier: I would recommend you just download them and play around with both tools. Maybe I chose the wrong terms to describe them, but you'll quickly notice the different ways in which both tools can be useful to you.

comment How to use locate to search for folders only
@sch: Well, if you don't understand the consequences and if you're in the habit of having files named $(reboot) on your computer, maybe you shouldn't run commands you find on the internet with sudo ;D But, thanks for providing a better version, feel free to edit or post it as an answer, so it doesn't get lost in comments.

comment How to find Chrome extensions that inject ads into any webpage I browse?
@GiacomoTecyaPigani: Chrome actually allows fine-grained control over which plugins should run: i.imgur.com/aQXthv4.png I use "click to run" for Flash.

comment Why does “explorer” sometimes not create a shell?
@Zoredache: The process works perfectly on other devices. If I set Notepad to be the shell, exit it after a reboot and start Explorer, I'll get my shell as expected. On another device the situation is as described in my question. Given that Explorer isn't the shell by default on either device, no other instances of Explorer (or anything else that isn't a service) are running.

comment How do I find the source of empty items in my Explorer context menu?
I have 311 shell extensions installed. Could be quite the job to work through those. But ShellExView is a nice hint.

comment How do I find out command line arguments of a running program?
@Pacerier I assume so. There's probably a Windows API to do this. I don't know the implementation though.

comment How should I create multiple instances of MS Excel 2013, in Win7 x64?
I have to say, this is pretty interesting. When you start another instance of Excel, it will simply invoke the previous instance to open another window and close itself. The only way to force a second instance is if you start the first one as Administrator (not recommended) and the second as normal user. Trying to force Excel to open another context seems to be quite tricky. This is quite annoying.

Could you somehow demonstrate the issue or explain step-by-step what you're doing? When I open multiple Excel worksheets in Excel 2013, they are opened in separate windows with separate undo lists.
