I like to write code and solve problems. I'm not an expert yet, but I hope to be one, one day.

comment How do I enter an @ at the beginning of cell (when its not a formula)
Wow, this is an awesome trick. The column/cell does not even need to be formatted as text first for this to work.

comment How can I get the MAC address from my stolen laptop so the police can trace it?
@psusi you can "trace" it in the sense that if he can show that he owned a laptop with a particular MAC address, and a laptop is found with one that matches it, it can be identified as being his. From dictionary.com: 'trace, verb: to follow evidence; to ascertain by investigation"

Launch pad is for launching full applications from shortcuts/icons. OP wants an app that holds widgets.

comment Run OSX virtually in Windows
It should be noted, as I stated in this answer that this is not legal, according to the OS X EULA. Also, this question may be a duplicate of my the one in my link.

comment Access my home files via web browser
@OliverSalzburg SkyDrive stores files on Microsoft servers, which breaks one of his requirements. This means Dropbox is out, too.

comment How to turn a keyboard shortcut into a Desktop shortcut?
@CorporateGeek I was trying to find that actually. The closest I could find was ctrl-escape, but that doesn't work for windows key combinations, it just opens the start menu. I'll keep looking, but you should post back here if you find it.

comment How to turn a keyboard shortcut into a Desktop shortcut?
I think you have it backwards. I interpreted his question has how to have a shortcut file trigger a keyboard shortcut, but your answer is how to have a keyboard shortcut trigger a shortcut file. Note how he's trying to not have to use keyboard shortcuts, as he says it'd be useful for those who are not that into keyboard shortcuts.

Have you tried using the on screen keyboard? The macro program might not read it.

comment Windows 7 Eject Drive ejects internal keyboard and trackpad
@Paul no, I can't select either of the two drives. I can't normally, either. Here's what the drive looks like plugged into the other usb port. i.imgur.com/NyLgn.png

It looks like it is a bug with the reading. Does it say 429 Million degrees?

comment How do I find the serial number of my Macbook Pro in Windows 7?
You should try a magnifying glass. In a pinch, try holding a plastic bottle of water up to it - it should work for magnifying. Alternatively, take a photo, and zoom it, or find someone with better eyes.

comment How to restore open files when I close and reopen a project in Eclipse
I've only just starting using eclipse about two months ago, and mine always reopens my files. It saves the state of the workspace. Are you using a workspace?

comment windows 7 on Acer Aspire
It's hard to tell what could be wrong. You should try to include more details if possible. What "bluetooth notification" did you see, and what taskbar functions are missing? Did you have custom software before? Perhaps there was some bloatware that you used that you're missing now.

You'll have to elaborate on what you want to do. I've edited my answer to provide some more details and a possible work around.

Not going to lie, that looks pretty shady. I'm not going to download that exe.

Why the downvote? Is my question phrased poorly or inappropriate for this site?
