comment Close all copies of a particular application using the Windows GUI
Nice! I gave this a try and it does work fine on my Windows 8.1 system, albeit with the limitations that you alluded to, like lack of a scrollbar to scroll through the long list of processes.

comment Close all copies of a particular application using the Windows GUI
That being said, maybe making desktop shortcuts to close all instances of any application that I ever might want to close all copies of is the best solution, even though that would be a rather ugly hack. @techie007, feel free to add that as an answer and I'll accept it if I can't come up with anything better!

comment Close all copies of a particular application using the Windows GUI
@techie007 (and users who are voting to close this), this question is different in that it's asking for a method to close instances of any arbitrary Windows application (not necessarily known beforehand) -- not always notepad.exe (or some other specific application that can be hard-coded into a shortcut) as in the linked question.

@Ramhound I don't believe so. For example, if I have 5 instances of notepad.exe running, and I want to close them all, if I use Task Manager to kill one of those applications and/or processes, the other 4 remain open. I'd like to have a way to close all 5 at once.

comment Play/pause pandora.com with a media key
This only works with the Pandora One desktop application on Windows -- not with Pandora running in a web browser -- but this happens to be what I was looking for, and I can verify that it does work (on Windows 8.1), so thanks!

@CsabaToth It looks like SharePod has become no longer free since the time I originally posted this. :-( I'll update my answer.

comment Bluetooth audio control window on Windows 7 - Make it always visible?
I have "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar" checked. The problem isn't that the system tray icon disappears (it doesn't); the problem is that the audio control window that's tied to that system tray icon hides itself when I don't want it to. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Nothing helpful. It has: Show status, play/Pause, Stop, Next, Previous, Next Group, Previous Group, Disconnect. No "Properties" or "Auto Hide" or anything like that though.

comment Windows 7 Audio Too Loud
This is the kind of thing I was looking for, but it didn't seem to work for me (on Windows 7): Running "nircmd setsysvolume 75", or even "nircmd setsysvolume 500" causes my sound card to produce no output, but running "nircmd setsysvolume 600" causes the same results as setting the standard Windows volume to 1 (much too loud on my system).
