comment Knowing the MAC adress of a stolen laptop
Some Wi-Fi routers retain information about devices that were recently connected. I'm not sure what a MAC address will really buy you though. Since they can be changed in software, I'm not sure it would stand up in court as a unique identifier to prove ownership. Aside from that, you could use it to locate the laptop but only if you're already in fairly close range.

comment Check for elevation at command prompt
@zumalifeguard Good to know, but it seems like a very rare case. Under what common conditions might a user experience that?

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

Rebooted twice when testing the Surface last time.

@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.

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.
