You write " I've tried almost every different solution I could find on the internet for any problem that seemed remotely similar." <---- You should list everything you tried and the results. You should've taken notes

comment VNC over a VPN connection to a home network
I am not 100% sure about this.. But when your VPN LAN is 10.8.0.0/24 perhaps all the physical computers also get an IP on 10.8.0.0/24? I vaguely recall that setting up a VPN involved a DHCP server

comment I cloned my SSD to a HDD, but Windows still thinks its solid state
It is very easy for you to try the answers given. Your question loses value if you don't try answers and accept if an answer works and comment if it doesn't. I suggest trying the least likely one first, so the one somebody wasn't sure of, the device manager scan for hardware changes, then see if we can rule that one out.. then the winsat command which is more likely 'cos the answerer on that one was more sure.

comment PC gets powered up only sometimes
@georgiosd Better to say the computer was powering on fine. And that guide is ridiculous 'cos it doesn't even have pictures of the backprobing. Try this video by Britec Manually Test a (PSU) Power Supply With a Multimeter by Britec youtube.com/watch?v=ac7YMUcMjbw

comment PC gets powered up only sometimes
you are limited diagnosing hardware things without swapping parts,BUT.. there are some tests to see if a PSU Has issues but they won't catch any issue. One test is backprobing with a multimeter. Another test is connecting the green and black(sees if the PSU powers up) The latter probably not s orelevant to you. The former is worth trying. But really whether the tests show anything or not, you should be trying a different PSU when you suspect the PSU

comment PC gets powered up only sometimes
don't say "perfectly working" that's very amateurish. Obviously it appeared perfectly working. You sound like an end user that says sounding shocked "It was working fine and then now it's not". That's (so commonly) how it is

comment Switch between windows by title
this isn't an answer but are you aware that you can do alt-tab then hold alt and use arrow keys. Also, there is a program called Vista Switcher (it's not just for Vista). it is an alt-tab replacement.. though it's likely not to have the feature you mention. It may still be worth a try. VirtuaWin is interesting in how it shows loads of windows compactly, though i'm sure it doesn't have the typing feature you ask for.

comment MOBO turns on when power connected, and black screen
I've seen a computer power on automatically when plugged in, there's a setting in the BIOS about that.. I have seen the same computer also have various power issues, - two faulty power supplies - and sometimes fans spun slowly, but it turned on sometimes. You could try to look at the screen issue.Try another screen,I know u tried the graphics card in another computer, but still, try a different graphics card. Maybe there's a weird inexplicable incompatibility of some kind. If it has other graphic outputs e.g. hdmi try that.The more other things u try that don't work,the more likely its MBRD.

comment Hide HTTP Destination with a Raspbery Pi
@cosi there isn't really a technical term "connection type" but regarding konwing the details of how the connection is done e.g. whether it's encrypted or not, I suppose perhaps not but perhaps it could be if it's an extension. What is the name of the Chrome extension? You could use Wireshark to inspect the connection and see everything e.g. whether it's encrypted or not. You'd see tons of stuff and you'd have to add filters like ip.dst==4.5.6.7(or something like that) where 4.5.6.7 is your proxy.

comment Hide HTTP Destination with a Raspbery Pi
@cosi well, it can benefit others too. But in your case, if you lack admin priv.. then i'm not sure how you'd do it. ssh can do it without admin priv.
