revised Downloading software without bloatware
technically not a "Zip" or "unzip" process to install portable apps.

comment Downloading software without bloatware
To my knowledge, as others have alluded, you can move the folder and nothing is "permanently" installed (with the exception of maybe the launcher?). The implementation details (glorified zip vs "PortableApps Installer" - whatever that means) isn't where I wanted to focus, and maybe I can tone those parts down or clarify if needed (maybe my understanding is outdated as well - I moved from PortableApps to Ninite awhile ago). The important parts to me are the available programs and lack of "bloat"/toolbars with those programs.

comment Can I turn a spare USB keyboard into a “macro keypad”?
+1 for question and answer. Extra keys for gaming on the cheap - right up my alley.

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 I've submitted feedback via their mechanisms. That doesn't answer how to fix/work around the problem now.

comment Block/Remove “Web”/Bing Search from Windows 10
@Ramhound MS seems to be actually doing faster releases. Windows 8->8.1->8.1u1... 365 etc. Relatively fast releases that seem to be the new normal. Does that mean we have to stop asking questions because next quarter an update will change everything, making all of the questions now moot? This is their product now, so I'm not sure why this question wouldn't be relevant - especially since it's tagged Windows-10-Preview. Edit: And after a quick search, I don't see anything that says "Don't ask questions about beta software". Please correct me if I'm wrong.

comment Block/Remove “Web”/Bing Search from Windows 10
@Ramhound Not liking a "feature" isn't enough to stop using it out-right (Especially for testing purposes). I know it's a beta/preview. There are also some very adventurous individuals (like the link on how to "hide" the search icon using autohotkey), so "Hasn't been implemented yet" doesn't mean this can't be disabled or blocked in the interim.

comment Visual Studio - Using GIT and SVN
I understand, was thinking the same thing, and agree more so now that I'm looking back at the question. Often there are work-arounds to edge cases like mine (like me simply using Explorer and TortoiseGit/Svn/Hg drop down mouse-menu's in place of Visual Studios built in Source Control option).

comment Visual Studio - Using GIT and SVN
@Ramhound I'm mainly on VS2013 and this question does focus on that (although, the same thing applies to previous version). The issue is that you have to manually change the source control and restart Visual Studio every... single... time... you want to switch. VS2013 doesn't seem to like supporting multiple Version Control systems at the same time. SVN for work, Git for person, HG for school, etc... It'd be nice to not have to dig into settings, restart, dig, restart, rinse, lather repeat. It's made me curse on an occasion or two. I've mainly settled on explorer drop down menu's.

comment Does Office365 have “App password” option?
After some poking around, I think this question straddles the line between super-user and webapps - I'm configuring something to work with a webapp. I think I'll mark the question answered, since the original question has more or less been answered (Application Passwords in Office365 Personal is working w/2FA) although I'm now working on the expanded side of it (Office365 Business/Exchange Application Passwords, since I didn't consider them to be wholefully different at first). I'll ask the second part of the question on WebApps.

As such, I'm trying to use options of a service or application options in a professional manner. I'd consider that "Superuser", although if it's not, I'm more than game to move/ask the question elsewhere.

comment Does Office365 have “App password” option?
@Ramhound I was asking because I am creating an application for work and it is using the SMTP portion of my (or someone else's) email account. For that, I'd prefer not to have my account password included - if it's in a config file as plaintext or encrypted in a database. I knew Google offered that ability, but wasn't able to find it in 365.

@Ramhound Assumptions and all... I'm surprised I missed that requirement. That has Personal App Passwords available now. Waiting on network dude to get back from the field so I can inquire as too that option.
