This also works in Windows 10, but does not make a difference to WindowsRT metro apps.

comment Possible to back up a VPN connection in Windows 7?
A comment from another user: I had a folder called hidden_pbk (though the folder is not hidden) with another rasphone.pbk. I have 6 VPN's setup but they appeared to all be contained in one file.

comment Anyone who knows about tomatousb, which version will work for me?
You might want to consider DD-WRT, if your router is not supported (it probably is if it is Broadcom chipset based), as it supports many more routers.

There are loads of forks. I was using the Toastman mod on my Netgear WNR3500L a few years ago, but he seems to have stopped. Try the AdvancedTomato GUI Mod, of your router has enough RAM. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato_(firmware)#Feature_comparison

It keeps on popping up after a network disconnection as well, which is very irritating.

There is no such application repository for Windows. The closest you will get is the Windows Store, which has a GUI interface. The PortableApps repository is also a GUI that has a lot of free software available and it auto-updates. portableapps.com

@Ramhound I think you meant ARM, not AMD.

You can most probably pay for just an in-place upgrade from Core to Pro.

comment How to control a presentation on computer using iPad?
I just realised that the iOS version is another app for Remote Desktop. Office Remote is currently only available on Windows Phone and Android, although the Android version only came out recently, so there may be an iOS version soon.
