comment Can't reliably ping network printer
What are the differences between the PCs that connect and those that don't? Location, cabling, software, drivers?

comment How to change the appearance of superuser.com
It's funny - this was something you used to be able to do easily in all browsers; what happened?!

Presumably you want these changes to persist the next time you visit this site?

comment ALT + ESC I want to improve upon its functionality
Does Win+Tab (Windows Aero "Flip") not work on Windows 8? This would seem to do what you want on Windows 7... cycles through all (incl. minimised) windows, showing you a large preview of each.

comment Gmail password not visible under Chrome password settings
Google keeps you logged in to Gmail for "quite a long time" (by default) but might periodically ask for a password - you don't need your password actually stored by the browser for this.

If you can, try your PDF on another domain.

comment How to instruct Chrome to download PDF rather than (pre)view in browser?
"I'm thinking it's nginx" - .htaccess is an Apache feature, nginx has its own syntax.

comment How to instruct Chrome to download PDF rather than (pre)view in browser?
What server-side language are you using? Content-Disposition is certainly the way to go (as already mentioned), but that solution on WordPress/.htaccess is not necessarily correct. The Content-Type should not be set to application/octet-stream, in an attempt to fool the browser. (Not sure why this question was migrated from Webmasters, it is programming related, entirely to do with the HTTP response headers as sent from the server.)

comment Setting up Lynx Browser on Windows 7
This one is currently at version 2.8.3, which as the author states is 10+ years out of date. For the latest versions, see the link in Jonathan Hult's answer, or see the list of maintained Windows Binaries on the official Lynx website.

comment Windows 7 how to make the program name appear in the titlebar
In fact, I'd go so far as to say this has always been the case, even in the "old days" (at least Win 3.1).

comment Bit.ly link without http://
Where are you copying them from? If you are copying the link from the browsers address bar then most browsers will fully qualify the URL as it is copied (although this might not be shown in the address bar itself). However, Opera allows you to show the entire URL, so you can copy just the part of the URL that you require.

comment How does a web browser know if destination is http or https?
Interestingly I see the "http" to "https" redirect for www.paypal.com in Safari and Firefox, but not in Chrome or Opera. To me this looks like it is perhaps a special "feature" of these browsers?

comment How does a web browser know if destination is http or https?
It almost seems like paypal.com is a "special case"?! Normally, if you typed in www.example.com, the browser would request "http" on port 80. It would then be up to the website to redirect you to https (port 443), or reject the request altogether. However, with paypal, even with all caches clear, there is no redirection to "https" as far as I can see? The browser appears to cancel/change the typed request, so the very first request is for "https"! This would be a good security feature if this is indeed what is happening? Tested in Chrome Inspector.

comment How can I delete everything after the first column in Notepad++?
What do you mean by "This is not 'column based.'"? Alt+Shift+Arrow switches to "column mode".
