comment What does 1080p mean in laptop resolution?
@paradroid: For example, your PCMag article references the DisplaySearch firm which does research and consulting. They label themselves analysis experts that make predictions and reveal trends. Predictions and trends aren't observations. However, DisplaySearch is not a part of that industry. They are not the "laptop manufacturers" that make the actual choices based on their reasoning. Therefore DisplaySearch cannot state it as a fact that laptop manufacturers did it because they were forced to; all they can do is assume and have it spread as a misleading story that makes u assume it as a fact.

comment What does 1080p mean in laptop resolution?
@paradroid: No, journalists are not verifiable as they write the most misleading titles reflecting their own viewpoint. A verifiable source cannot be misleading or based on a viewpoint, because it must be the actual source of your fact. For your fact, a verifiable source would be multiple screen producers and manufacturers making statements about 16:9 being forced. They are the only ones that can feel forced to do this and therefore they are the only ones who could make it a fact. This fact is not brought to existence by the most renowned economists, predictors, statisticians or journalists.

@paradroid Magazines are not sources of facts. Please refer to original verifiable resources. It's not a fact until you demonstrate it to be one.

@paradroid: Uhm, no, it is not a fact. A statement concerning one manufacturer yielded from a discussion does not imply a fact concerning all manufacturers. Furthermore, a statement concerning screens for certain models does not imply a fact concerning screens for all models.

comment What are the various link types in Windows? How do I create them?
@Pacerier: Windows uses the old location system, where you can for example move a music folder around from its properties. Libraries are a new addition, which the OS itself barely uses as a result. Therefore I doubt if anything would break; as they are intended solely for display purposes, ...

comment What are the various link types in Windows? How do I create them?
@Pacerier: Tricky question; as with anything, I think the answer to that is "depends on the software you run". As there might be software using the library API functions.

@Pacerier: Go to Windows Explorer. Make sure you are in "Libraries", you can enter this in the address bar without quotes. Then right click in the blank; in the menu that appears, click "New", then "Library".

comment Actual Public IP different from Public IP shown on ip lookup
Downvoted because modern hardware does not use classful addressing anymore.

comment Why local addresses usually start with 192.168?
@kinokijuf: Funny, because this answer has no reference of hardware or classful addresing. It instead has a reference of modern IANA reservations.

It's also not a reason to not recommend it. It's up to the reader to decide.

comment How to diagnose slow booting or logon in Windows?
@Dims: Yes, some years ago Soluto has migrated to the web as you can see on that page; harrymc's screenshot might be a bit outdated and still picture the old application, but their boot-analysis functionality still exists as documented in that link. The front page just has no hyperlink to it.
