comment Two PSU in one PC
@clabacchio it's not pc modding as he isn't asking how to glue two cases together or cut a hole in his case

you may get an answer here but also consider android.stackexchange though you might have more luck with androidforums

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.

@cosi with the ssh server on your raspberry pi, put your ssh server on port 80

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.

comment Editing HTML source code with Google Chrome
To casualcoder and @Benjamin Even when I do ctrl-ENTER, I notice that if I reload the page the change isn't saved. And i'm talking about for a local page , so there should be a way to save though I don't see it

comment Hide HTTP Destination with a Raspbery Pi
see my answer, though it doesn't cover a)setting up the proxy, even putting aside any encryption b)any issues installing stunnel e.g. if it requires a certificate.

comment Hide HTTP Destination with a Raspbery Pi
As for your question about permissions, asking such a question isn't the right approach. You should try and install it, see what errors you get.

comment Hide HTTP Destination with a Raspbery Pi
For Windows, there's a windows port of stunnel, and there's an stunnel that runs in cygwin.. There may be an issue installing it where it asks about a certificate.

I have an idea, you can use stunnel

comment Hide HTTP Destination with a Raspbery Pi
Re the proxy on the pi, I thought about, perhaps an HTTPS Proxy, but then if you HTTP to it then maybe it wouldn't encrypt and thus wouldn't hide the proxy request. People can get so inclined to ssh that it cripples the mind somewhat and people tend not to look for other solutions.. it's an interesting question. I like "without ssh" questions!

comment How to know if bad sectors are caused by physical or logical damage?
ATramhound. Spinrite (by the notorious steve gibson) is Controversial as it may actually be bad for a hard drive, doing multiple writes on a potentially bad drive(scott mueller critiqued it). And it uses false marketting about stopping disk crashes forever(john navas and others have critiqued him for his false marketting). And if a harddrive is faulty, then the software you suggest there may indeed cause it to get worse! There was even a whole website exposing steve gibson but I won't write more on that 'cos stuff like that gets deleted from this site.

comment Replace any number of spaces using regular expressions
There is also a bit of a mixup between spaces and whitespaces in the question..where the title says space and the first line says whitespace. I think you meant whitespaces..

@DavidPostill but Antonio's link was a horrible reference, because Word is different and can have its own syntax.
