comment How to include a non-breaking hyphen in hyperlink text in Word 2010
You're welcome. Surprised you recalled your nearly 3 year old question. Since writing my original answer I've upgraded to Word 2013 and can now use Ctrl+Shift+- to enter non-breaking hyphens into the text-to-display portion of the hyperlink edit dialog box (although what's in my answer still works, too).

comment My computer doesn't recognize the monitor's resolution on some VGA cables, what's going on?
However, note that a quality VGA (and most other kinds of) cable need not cost a fortune nor have gold plated pens. The important factors are being wired-properly with the right gauge wire, and being shielded.

comment How to include a non-breaking hyphen in hyperlink text in Word 2010
@dunxd: My laptop also lacks a numeric keypad. However there;s a virtual one composed of keys from several rows to the right of the center of the keyboard. These key all have a blue digit on them in addition to the normal letter. If I hold down the Fn key, those keys all become the digit shown on them. So, to simulate having a numeric keyboard, I need to first press and hold the Fn key, then also press the Alt key, before pressing the keys for 030. An viable alternative to all this fancy keyboarding would be to use something like AutoHotkey and make a macro.

comment How to synchronize computer clock without admin rights
Good to hear, especially since it's often possible to password protect being able to change the BIOS settings, too, but apparently your school didn't do that.

comment Sync one google drive account for all users on windows pc?
Try putting the synced folder in C:\Users\Public or an appropriate sub-directory of it, which I think any user on the machine can access.

@murray: The referenced FAQ applies to the OSX and Java versions which were current at the time I posted my answer. Things have likely changed by now...

comment Quickest way to upload 500 GB to Google Drive
Taking the HD to work and then putting it back should work OK. It's also something you can try easily enough.
