comment Why does Excel 2007 changes the text “HSA”to “HAS”?
Nice tip! The only downside is that you need to do a mouse-action for that, or, alternatively, press F2 and then Shift+Home to select all before clicking on Enter

comment JPEG vs PNG vs BMP vs GIF vs SVG
I know this is an old thread, and thank you for the answer, but note that BMP is optionally compressed with a very simplistic, lossless, RLE compression.

Thanks. I actually remember now using this app a long time ago (not for this purpose, though). Thanks for the reminder.

comment How do I defer delivery of email for less than a minute in Outlook?
@KronoS - any tip for how to do it with VBA? This is a very annoying behaviour when you are brainstorming with team members. 99% of time, the realization that you should not have sent the email comes immediately after clicking on the Send button.

comment How to cast Skype audio to TV from Nexus 7 via Chromecast?
Thanks. This explanation does make sense. If true, then the casting of audio is done before the final mixer which mixes the various audio sources, and thus not include Skype audio. Skype audio gets to the mixer through the "call" API.

comment How to convert an Outlook 2007 .ost file to a .pst file, so I can open it in another, local computer?
Thanks, @davejal. It has been a while since asking the question, and I don't have access to these files anymore, so I cannot verify your answer. Hopefully someone out there will find it useful. +1 anyway.

comment Is there a multi-tab terminal replacement for Cygwin's terminal?
@Chuim - It seems to be working fine for me. Console 2.00.148 (32-bit according to Process Manager) running Cygwyn64 Terminal over Win 7 64-bit.

comment How to rotate “landscape” pages to view in “portrait” mode?
BTW, if you're using the Hand Tool to click and drag pages in order to scroll them, then using non-auto zoom value gets the page also move left and right. Rotating pages will eliminate this annoyance.

comment How to rotate “landscape” pages to view in “portrait” mode?
Thanks. "unless you want to also rotate the content" - that's basically what I asked for in the question. Do not crop anything, just rotate.

comment Explorer does not auto-refresh
There's this article that summarizes many of the known possible fixes to the problem. I am not making this a full answer as this will require me to write a synopsis of that article: itworld.com/article/2827156/windows/…

comment Windows 7 - Cannot remove read-only attribute
Of all the explanations I found searching online, this is actually the correct one. Unbelievably, MS found yet another way to shoot themselves (and us) in the leg! So many things were screwed up since Win XP.

On my Win7, PowerShell's Autocomplete (using TAB) (mis)behaves just like in CMD.

comment Toggle ClearType (Windows 7)
Your second suggestion is just running the control panel applet - so not saving the while multi-dialog sequence. Anyway, I was actually looking for the progname of that applet, so +1 for that. You can type cttune in the search box of the start menu and the applet will be found.
