comment Making Parental Controls useful on the Linksys WRT1900AC router?
Good suggestion! This isn't foolproof -- for example, OpenDNS can be bypassed by using a DNS lookup website to look up the IP address of a blocked domain, and then entering that IP address into a browser's address bar directly -- but this should be a "good enough" solution for my household, at least for the time being. Thanks!

comment How do you convert FLV file format to a format that Picasa recognizes (e.g. AVI, MPEG, WMV)?
Worked great for me converting several DRM-free 1+ GB files from FLV to MP4. Be aware though that the Format Factory installer will by default install several pieces of junkware (browser toolbars, etc.); read carefully and be sure to uncheck checkboxes and click "Decline" as applicable.

This produces weird results for me. In Windows Media Player (Windows 8.1). The video won't initially play; I need to move the time index control manually to get it going. Also, the total length of the video (for a long hour+ video) is too long; if I move the time index control to a point past where the video should end, the video starts playing from the beginning from that point.

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.

comment Close all copies of a particular application using the Windows GUI
@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!
