comment Dual (VGA + DVI) monitors, only one at a time works
@user1680977 It's still not clear if that's the only way. Searching around, some people have needed to get another card, some people are using a DisplayPort and VGA just fine (not sure if your system even has a DisplayPort port), and some people have said they've used a splitter (although they might already have a second video card... again, it's unclear). Dell is notorious for changing hardware without changing the model. A video card will solve the problem (but be sure to get one capable of dual output) but I can't say for sure if it's truly necessary or if there's another problem.

comment Dual (VGA + DVI) monitors, only one at a time works
@user1680977 Make/model of motherboard is only useful if you build the PC yourself. What does your system look like? The one on the left is an ultra-small, the middle is a small form factor, and the right is a standard mini tower. If you're ultra-small or small form, you're looking at probably $100 for a video card with dual dvi. If you're the mini tower, it's $30.

comment Notepad ignoring linebreaks
@Damon I used to hate this behavior, too, but you can disable it. You just need to configure Notepad++ not to reopen old sessions. Go to Settings --> Preferences --> Backup. Uncheck "Remember current session for next launch".

Until a computer takes more than a minute to restart or aborts the restart for some reason your script isn't aware of.

comment Restart-Computer and hold script
I don't know if it needs to be two separate files, but the two behaviors of the script should be separated by a switch or parameter. A -RunAfterReboot switch with a conditional in the script itself would be sufficient.
