  • Ctrl+X,*
    Evaluate globbing on your current input on the bash command line.

    Pump out the postfix queue on your backup MX after you've fixed the issue with your primary MX.

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?
This works. I also just found these instructions on stackoverflow.com/questions/17333208/…

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.

comment Equivalent to ^D (in bash) for cmd.exe?
@AvindraGoolcharan: I've been told, depending on how you start Command Prompt, the window title can be different from what I used in this script. The second line might need adjustments depending on your preference.

comment What a process can get from touching another application's dll?
It's quite possible that the process is forced to load the DLL because TeamViewer wants to manipulate the process.

@MonkeyZeus Partly, yes. I wanted to explain the process so that I can reference it in another post. Others are welcome to post alternatives though.
