comment How can I force a cmd.exe prompt error message to not close?
@LPChip oops, yes you are right, I forgot to mention that. Yet another way on windows 8 that will open cmd at the current folder: In the explorer click File -> Open command prompt - there is also an option to open it as administrator.

comment How can I force a cmd.exe prompt error message to not close?
@LPChip It's a default feature of Windows 7/8 that works without any additional software. If you already opened the right path in the terminal there is an even more convenient way though: Shift + Right Click -> Open command window here

comment Solutions for presenting PDF slides with presenter notes on second display
@random I believe this question did follow the guidelines in the close text and linked faq, especially the how to ask "I have problem-x that I don't know how to solve. I've already tried X, Y, Z, but those programs don't work because this or that. How do I do this?". I did a lot of research and summarized the result of everything I've tried. I described the problem, even used some mad paint skills to illustrate it. I have edited it to focus more on the problem though and changed it to ask for solutions instead of tools.

comment How to type zero-width space character (U+200B) on a laptop keyboard?
Missing in this answer is how to actually find the character: Activate advanced view and use the input field labelled "Go to Unicode" or just "Unicode" in newer versions. Input 200B and the character will be selected in the top left corner. Searching for the name only works if you know how the character is called in your locale.

comment In modern webbrowsers is there any point in putting www infront of a url that uses it?
On a side note, sometimes browsers do have something to do with this: In Firefox, if the non-www domain is unreachable, the browser will try to load the www subdomain. For example loading example.invalid will also load www.example.invalid without any server redirects.

This is quite useful if you need to concatenate files in a particular order.

comment Solutions for presenting PDF slides with presenter notes on second display
In case of my current presentation, part of the content already comes straight from a latex document, so copying that is easier than recreating the markup in pp.

comment Solutions for presenting PDF slides with presenter notes on second display
@harrymc Not that many features on second though, mainly it's having a progress-bar like overview of the presentation, basically like a table of contents on (almost) every slide that highlights the current section. Also source code syntax colouring (rtf copy&paste would work, but not when linking files I edit externally). Not really required, but portability with pdf is better than ppt.I also just like to type more and click less.

@harrymc I know, unfortunately Powerpoint lacks many features that I need and are provided by latex. There seem to be a few solutions exactly for my setting, it's just that those applications are for OS X.
