comment How to safely undock a Surface Pro 3?
Thanks for the link, it's more or less the exact same question that I have, and it is just as unanswered - one person says it's possible to undock, others say it isn't when external drives are concerned...

comment Is it possible to open Modern UI apps on a second display?
Win-PgUp/Dn didn't work for me on my Surface Pro 3 (Win8.1), but the click on the lower left Windows icon did.

comment Excel select to end of adjacent column
I just tried that in Excel 2013, and there, Ctrl-Shift-Down selects until row 1048576, not the end of the data. Any ideas?

comment How to setup an external monitor on a Surface Pro 3 (with docking station)?
If that's really not possible, it's incredibly stupid. Of course I'm not using the Surface display at the same time as the external monitor, but when I undock it, I would like to use it without having to switch magnification back to 150%, log off, log back on so the changes take effect, and then perform the same in reverse when I re-dock it. That can't be the proper way to do it...

comment How to setup an external monitor on a Surface Pro 3 (with docking station)?
Thanks, this works for the external display, but now the size of items on the Surface's High-DPI display becomes tiny as well. Can this be set individually per display unit?

comment Stop all “under-the-hood” Windows network activity
@Karan: Windows wouldn't know it's on a metered connection, though. To Windows, it's a normal WiFi connection.

comment Correcting paper size in Microsoft Word without losing the existing page formatting
How do you expect getting rid of the margins without changing the flow of the paragraphs? Either the margins remain, or there will be more text per page, and that will affect the layout.

comment Is it possible to do any programming on the Microsoft Surface RT?
Thanks, I haven't bought the Surface yet, and I know about the Pro, but I really want to try the Surface RT (lighter, cheaper, longer battery life, Jeff likes it...)

comment Is it possible to do any programming on the Microsoft Surface RT?
I do have Python 2.7.3 installed on my iPhone, too. Something like that would be great for Surface...

comment Why are some (all?) files bigger on Mac OS X?
...and I guess they did it so people would finally stop complaining "My new 3 TB drive only has 2.7 TB! I'm being robbed!"

This will mess up indentation everywhere else in the file...

comment Python auto indents when I copy/paste
This is not a programming question according to the FAQ. You should ask this on SuperUser (or read the manual of your editor), because it's not Python, it's your editor that does the indenting.

comment Long boot time if the computer is not connected to the domain
Do they happen to have network printers/folder shares/network drives configured? Looking for those takes a while.

comment Change default code page of Windows console to UTF-8
Then you or Ole should edit the answer to correct it. If someone doesn't read the fine print, he will get burned badly by this answer.

@Regent: If this solution makes your system unbootable, why did you mark it as accepted, then?

Yes, exactly. Why not just try it?

comment How do I rename a file to .htaccess in Windows 7?
FWIW, I didn't downvote this. But in my opinion, you should remove your answer because the other answer is much better: it doesn't just say "It's magic!" but explains why it works. And you were about a year late with yours.
