comment How to fully uninstall a Windows Store app?
Curious. I've not done anything about this for months; last time I tried I still had 1GB+ of files left in WindowsApps. But today I thought I'll try your method only to find out they're all gone now. Perhaps I needed a few reboots or a Windows Update session or something like that...

comment In vim, prevent caret moving back when I leave edit mode?
I don't find it funny :) Fortunately I've found an editor that doesn't drive me nuts (diakonos), so this is no longer an issue. Still, upvoted for those who like vim.

comment Windows 7 - Remote Desktop - multiple credentials
Nice! Can be extended to any number of credentials if you add bogus entries to the hosts file, such as "user4.myserver.example.com", or to the server's DNS records directly.

comment If I combine a PCIe x16 graphics card and a PCIe x4 hardware RAID, does the graphics card get 16 lanes?
So to clarify, when the CPU provides 8 lanes to one slot with a PCIe 3.0 card in it, and 8 lanes to another slot with a PCIe 2.0 card, the 3.0 card will run at 3.0 x8 speeds, correct? In other words, can the CPU run half of its 16 lanes at a different speed?

comment If I combine a PCIe x16 graphics card and a PCIe x4 hardware RAID, does the graphics card get 16 lanes?
With your help, I've spotted one other way of explaining that the lanes are independent: "4 lanes from the PCH" and such. I wish they would specify the total number of independent lanes connected to all the slots.

comment Why is my CPU usage broken in Process Explorer?
@Leftium I don't remember exactly; I think it locked up when I did something simple. But no worries; I've switched to ProcessHacker and I see no reason to ever look back; I couldn't find a single missing feature and a bunch of improvements I've wanted for ages. Highly recommended.
