comment Can multiple dynamic DNS resolve to the same IP address
With regards to the web server (usually port 80) you can use name based VirtualHosts so you would be able to easily differentiate between different hostnames (multiple websites).

comment Can multiple dynamic DNS resolve to the same IP address
You can certainly have multiple domains/hostnames in DNS that resolve to the same IP address. However, whether you can differentiate this traffic in your home network will depend on the capabilities of your router. Perhaps using different port numbers would be preferable?

comment How to save one file to multiple locations simultaneously
Simply automating your backup (copying of files) could be sufficient (rather than thinking along the lines of "saving to multiple locations").

comment Why are some important Windows Updates not checked automatically?
Is "tagged as an optional update" different to being categorised as an optional update? So, we have "Important" updates that are optional?

comment How to disable the “Get Windows 10” icon shown in the notification area (tray)?
Maybe coincidence, but after uninstalling update KB3035583, I no longer got notified (in the notification area / system tray) about any Windows Updates, despite having the option "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" selected. In fact, I've just noticed that this "problem" seems to have been reported by a number of users since receiving the W10 notification, regardless of whether they have uninstalled this update or not. (Whether this problem is related to the W10 update notification I don't know, but it has certainly occurred at around the same time.)

comment How can I replace the first several characters on multiple lines in Notepad++?
Probably not a big deal, but \n.... will always miss the first line. You could instead search from the beginning of the line, ie. ^....

comment Why can't I access my router's configuration page via https?
Having said that, I also have a TP-LINK router and that is also not available over an HTTPS connection.

comment Why can't I access my router's configuration page via https?
What actually happens when you try to access via HTTPS? Does it not resolve or do you simply get a certificate warning? Many routers use self-signed certs so the browser blows up with the necessary warnings, but you can go "advanced" and proceed over an HTTPS/encrypted connection if you want.

comment How do you know the size of a 7zip compressed file?
You can get the same information in the GUI under the "Packed Size" column (select View > Details or Ctrl+4). Or hit the big i "Info" button on the toolbar (or Alt+Enter) for more information and a summary when no files are selected.

What if you "Clear browsing data..." > "the past week" > "Browsing history" - does that remove the "recently closed tabs"?

comment Max files per directory on NTFS vol vs FAT32
"Maximum number of files in a single folder: 65,534 (FAT32)" - This limit would seem to be dependent on the length of the filenames. Specifically, if you are using LFNs (ie. not just the 8.3 short names). The short name and each 13 byte block of the LFN are stored in separate directory entries, which can greatly reduce the actual number of files that can be stored. Reference: help.lockergnome.com/windows2/…

comment FTP connection to directory failed
You mention "IP Address", but you have a named host in your connection details? (Which incidentally doesn't resolve.)
