comment How do I set startup programs per user on Windows 8?
You have to assume some technical knowledge. What's the right level? We don't write manuals these days explaining how to move a mouse, click, start up the computer, open a basic program and manipulate windows, etc. We used to. Some people still don't know how to do those things. Yet it's fair to assume that technical knowledge. The details of how to get to Task Scheduler vary between versions of Windows...not specifying that here makes the answer more general, robust, and longer-lasting (esp. as it also works on versions other than Windows 8).

Why the downvotes? Is it unfair to assume that readers can easily look up how to use Task Scheduler if they don't already know how?

Removed article that just explains how to use Task Scheduler, since having the link but not violating copyright by copying in content offends some.

comment Can MS Word detect single-sentence paragraphs?
Word could know about certain common abbreviations (e.g. Mr., Dr., etc.) and approximate the check; its accuracy would probably be comparable to many of the other grammar checks which have a lot of holes (/occasions to use the Ignore option) too.
