comment How do I associate a file type with a VBScript
His question already said he wanted to open a vbs file in wordpad, obviously that means he wants the contents of the vbs file to appear in wordpad. (or whatever text editor). That is quite an understandable question. Personally I just have notepad open and drag them into the notepad window(though I recall dragging to a wordpad window didn't work and notepad doesn't support \n new lines.).. I can't experiment now. But as to the batch window opening(you could minimize it but better), try HSTART ntwind.com/software/hstart.html If I recall it's like HSTART wordpad a.txt

comment “All boot options are tried” after updating BIOS
sounds like you can't enter the bios? (otherwise i wonder what you are doing!). You write " which completed successfully" you mean CLAIMS TO HAVE completed successfully! IF you can't enter the BIOS that is odd. maybe you should flash it again and cal samsung and post your answer.

comment Why is my NTFS parition full when it's not?
another space saving technique , one I did in XP, is (assuming system restore is on) to turn system restore off then on.That wipes the system restore directory which can be pretty big, that was in XP anyway. but I second the above mentioned of treesizefree by jam and just tried spacemonger 1.4(which is free), looks good.

comment search emails by originating IP
@NickW Really given that he just asked about searching email, and didn't say it has to include deleted email, a solution that searches email but doesn't do it for deleted email, is clearly a good solution with a slight very understandable weakness that maybe another improved solution could cater for.

As powershell is a candidate, you could ask just for powershell and ask in stackoverflow and this link mortisO mentioned cogmotive.com/blog/powershell/… may be relevant.

@NickW I don't know much about incoming queuees with it but if office365 has logs with IPs then in the logs would be of interest to him or anybody interested in the question, and might be what he'd be fine with, but he has said X-Originating-IP i.e. reading that header from -the email-. I know outlook stores a file like inbox.dbx and that has everything so not sure where queues comes in.

comment On a wireless network, is there a way to redirect webpages to a local page
the fact that it's wireless is irrelevant, you'd need the wired or wireless router to do this. I don't know how but you could do it if it's a linux router. Second to that, is maybe some standard router firmware can do it likee DDWRT or tomato. You'd need a router that supports it and flash it with that. And you'd need to find out how and if it's possible to do it in DDWRT ot tomato or any router firmware.

comment What does Ctrl+2 do in the Windows Command Prompt?
oh i've figured out the conundrum. I am on a UK keyboard/layout. On a UK keyboard, 2 has a quote(happens to be double quote) above it. But the key with single quote has an @ above it reached with shift. If I do ctrl+@ (so ctrl+shift+') to give ctrl-@ then it works. But it also works if I do ctrl+' then I get ^@ So, you can skip the shift. So for any keyboard it's ctrl with the key with @ on it.

comment Where is the BIOS stored?
CMOS contains system settings[BIOS settings] that can be modified by a user[in the BIOS screen]. So, according to cpsforum.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/… "[calling that screen you enter] CMOS setup is more appropriate than calling [it] BIOS setup." and bayt.com/en/specialties/q/7459/… "BIOS is modified only via flashing of new version." and "The BIOS is a set of instructions which controls motherboards boot process. "

comment How to Determine if USB mouse supports PS/2?
I have had some that are red. BTW according to this link pinouts.ru/InputCables/usb_ps2_mouse_pinout.shtml USB to PS/2 mouse or keyboard adapter pinout <-- that title also says it's the same.

comment How to Determine if USB mouse supports PS/2?
also the newer link he linked to magnifyingaids.com/store/ps2-to-usb-adapter-p-1213.html shows ones that happen to be green and says "Allows you to plug your USB keyboard or mouse into a PS/2 port." So @Gerhman the newer pic/description you linked to proves that the previous pic was fine!

Furthermore, here is a pinout of one and the other, notice they are the same. deskthority.net/workshop-f7/replace-usb-with-ps-2-t2209.html shows image.pinout.net/pinout_dell_inspiron_files/… and readious.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/ps2-to-usb-wiring-diagram.html shows (talking about keyboard) i45.servimg.com/u/f45/13/05/77/43/usb-to11.jpg

comment Several unicode characters are not displaying on many big sites (like this: ⁠)
Though re me, re my gnu quote, pan-unicode probably isn't a wrong term..that's probably just stallman being odd. it's more that fonts are so-called pan-unicode. Or that it's understood that pan-unicode doesn't mean all. But just a lot.

@JukkaK.Korpela And that blog gets the year wrong too, the font was created in 1998 not 2008.
