What is set as your default web browser? What happens if you click on links in other software (including other MSOffice programs)?

Indeed! I'd obviously completely failed to look at the underline short cuts; "i" is much better than arrowing there!

comment How can I hide my network connections in the task bar when I'm not connected?
To return to Tofystedeth's suggestion again - have you got the corresponding "Show icon in notification area when connected" ticked? If you've got it ticked - what happens if you untick it? (I'm thinking it could be that Windows treats that as some type of override on the other suggested options?)

comment Configuring a monitor's contrast/brightess/colours/etc
+1 for a good additional note; from what I read calibration results are dependant on the lighting in the enviroment - so when the evening sun comes in the window the colours are off compared to night time use under artifical light. Which is fine for me, since the majority of my use of said monitor will be under artifical light, so I've calibrated it for that and will make do with the rest.
