@BowlesCR Is that still relevant/functional when the system's not a domain member?

Rebooted twice when testing the Surface last time.

Good link, by the way. Not only addresses this feature, but also showing last login time - something I've been looking for, for awhile.

@harrymc One is a Surface Pro 3. The other is a laptop that came with 8.1. Strangely, on a re-test, the Surface Pro 3 appears to work with just the policy changes. It'll be awhile before I can check the other, though.

Not sure why it's funny, but yes - the accounts do have passwords.

As stated in the question, the system is not joined to a domain. I'll get a sanity-check on the Registry key though - that local policy should be setting it. Also, this has been confirmed to be a problem on both a work and home system - the latter being pretty fresh out of the box in terms of security policies.

Note: Everywhere I've come across an online article on how to do this, they're just referencing the two "Interactive logon" settings I've already applied.

comment How to add double quotes around data in tables using Calc
Calc should be using double-quotes when you save as CSV by default - if not, there should be an option to configure it. You can verify this by viewing the file in a text editor (e.g.: Notepad) instead of Calc.

comment How do I list the SSL/TLS cipher suites a particular website offers?
And while it's great for public-facing sites, you can't use it for sites on networks that are isolated from the Internet.

comment What is the difference between SETX and SET in environment variables in windows
Also, see SS64 references for SET and SETX. SS64 is a great command reference for several languages and command environments - I find it particularly handy for CMD & PowerShell.

Try SET /? and SETX /? - that should give you some ideas.

comment Return data based on matching date range
@MátéJuhász True. I'm not sure "Previous" and "Next" can really be figured properly without sorting, unless we have non-variable durations for the windows (we do) and define those in the formula. With sorting though, this will work in the "Helper Column" for all three: =IF(NOW()>=A2,IF(NOW()<=B2,"Current",IF(NOW()<=B3,"Previous","")),IF(AND(NOW()>‌​=A1,NOW()<=B1),"Next",""))

Bah. Looks like my idea might have caused a circular reference glitch.

comment Return data based on matching date range
I'm not much familiar with INDEX & MATCH, except that they're supposed to be superior in certain ways to VLOOKUP. That said, I think this is how I'd implement your suggestion with VLOOKUP, that also allows for easy coverage of Previous & Next: 1. C2=IF(C1="Current","Next",IF(C3="Current","Previous",IF(AND(NOW()>A2,NOW()<B2),‌​"Current",""))). 2. Copy C2 down to the end. 3. For "Current" we'd do =VLOOKUP(C:D,"Current",2,FALSE). 4. Write similar formulas as in 3, for "Previous" & "Next".
