comment How to turn a “many” row-based relation into a “one” column based layout
@jolesexcel Good point. Sorry I missed that. Glad it worked.

comment Restore desktop keyboard to windows 8.1
Though functionality in the pre-boot environment would seem to render this moot, I still wonder what would happen if you plugged the keyboard into a different system?

comment Windows firewall rule order?
I'm not sure you really need a product recommendation question. You've already mentioned two pretty functional firewalls - Windows & Comodo. You just need to learn how to use one of them properly, and work with that.

comment Windows firewall rule order?
Withdrew my earlier comment after reading again how Windows handles its rules. I guess that makes sense to someone, but I'd rather it just do things in the order I tell it to. That said, a remaining problem appears to be that you're trying to use two firewall products on the same system. Pick one, move all your rules over to that, and kill the other.

comment Use WebGoat on Windows 8
@user2505650 Please don't cross-post. This question can be migrated. Also, you'll need to provide more detail. Like what you've done already, what errors have been encountered, etc.

comment why remote powershell session dose not need password
How is the VPN configured? Do you authenticate with Active Directory, or a separate account? What accounts are authorized on the server - domain only, or do you also have local accounts? Really though, you're this worried about security and yet you "allow unencrypted traffic"?

comment High-pitched noise from Logitech Performance MX
@AthomSfere According to Wikipedia, it supports 100-1500 DPI and uses a "Darkfield Laser". Logitech's product page further specifies that the sensitivity can be adjusted in increments of 100 DPI.

comment Win7 - Opening “Programs and Features” as Admin from command line (logged in as regular user)
@philx_x That may be possible via WMI, PowerShell, or Registry queries. I'd suggest asking a separate question.

comment Is there a way to view a site from a web browser's cache?
As stated, this is a site on a LAN - Archive.org is of no use. And I'm aware I can browse through the files in the cache, but the question here is really looking for a simple "show me the site" interface.

comment Google Drive terminates without error on startup
@HenriquedeSousa That's great, but I have no way of validating whether that solution would have actually worked for my case - which, again, was mysteriously self-resolved. If I run into the problem again, I'll give your answer a shot and mark it as accepted if it works.

comment Google Drive terminates without error on startup
@HenriquedeSousa I would, if I knew what fixed it. As stated in my earlier comment, the problem mysteriously self-resolved. So, I can't definitively say whether your answer would have worked for my case or not.

comment Do 802.11b devices slow down other, newer networks on or near the same channel?
I know, from the information I was able to find on this subject before I posted this question, that 802.11b devices won't drag the whole network all the way down to 802.11b speeds. But there is a certain amount of reduction still happening. Like your fast talker/slow talker analogy - the fast talker can still pack a lot of words into the time he has, but he has less time to do it in.

comment Tracking & Synchronization of Multiple Sheets with a Master Sheet
@NWest Named tables probably is one option to make things easier. The problem with using things like VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH though is they're pull-only operations. I need to be able to push and export as well. I'm not expecting to be able to do both at once, but I do need to be able to do each as needed without overhauling the sheets every time or leaving a lot of "guts" (e.g.: otherwise-temporary helper columns) exposed all the time.

Not quite the fix I was suggesting, but that'll work too.

comment ping results are opened in new window when using powershell 4.0
Better test - this will check all profiles which may apply and dump their path and contents if the profile exists: $profile|gm -M NoteProperty|%{$x=$profile.($_.Name);if(Test-Path $x){$x;gc $x}}. If you get no output, no profiles exist. If all you see are filenames ending in profile.ps1, then you've got some blank profiles - effectively the same as if they didn't exist. If you see filenames and some script content, then you've got stuff in those profiles.

comment ping results are opened in new window when using powershell 4.0
@VikashKumar "Not that I can recall" is not generally a useful or authoritative troubleshooting response. Please try Get-Content $profile from the PowerShell console. If there's no output, you don't have anything configured in your profile.

comment PowerShell issues with spaces in directory names
You may need single-quotes instead of double-quotes. Try this: 'D:\Joshua\!Coding\Git stuff\centaur-XML-Tool\gource\executables\run-gource-for-windows.ps1' or this Set-Location 'D:\Joshua\!Coding\Git stuff\centaur-XML-Tool\gource\executables\';.\run-gource-for-windows.ps1

I'm familiar with PowerShell, but not so much IIS, so I'm not posting this as an answer unless validated: Try (Get-Item IIS:\AppPools\tech-2).Applications

comment Windows 7 - how to use LAN as main connection & Wifi as secondary connection
Depending on your device, the option to set the auto-switch may be in your BIOS/UEFI and/or in the "Advanced" tab on the Properties dialog for it in Device Manager.

comment Windows 7 - how to use LAN as main connection & Wifi as secondary connection
This is somewhat dependent upon your device manufacturer and drivers. There may be an option to automatically disable WiFi completely upon connection to a wired network, and re-enable it upon disconnection from the wire. Alternatively, there's probably a hot key combination (Fn key plus one of the F keys) that will easily toggle the WiFi or "Airplane Mode" on-demand. Note that setting of auto-switch may override your hot key's capability.
