  1. dw96's post in log in to microsoft was marked as the answer   
    I had a similar issue. Turned out that I had messed up my account settings and something was preventing me from logging in.
    Go to Start > PC Settings and try to re-add your account. If you're using a local account you can also try to associate it with an existing Microsoft account instead of adding a new user.
  2. dw96's post in Windows 7 Pro - won't let me change passwords on any user accounts was marked as the answer   
    Check out this thing:http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/
    You can create a bootable CD or DVD with which you can change any windows accounts and do actions like deleting/adding new accounts, changing passwords, removing passwords and so on. It is a bit tricky to work with, but it's perfect for a last-resort solution.
    P.S.: Sorry for the quickie answer, I was just browsing and saw something I can give a quick contribution to in my few minutes of free time.
  3. dw96's post in Need Pen or Pencil Name for Drawing a Typography Work was marked as the answer   
    I've heard quite a few nice things about the BlackWing 602 pencil:
    I've heard quite a few nice things about this pencil and even though I haven't used it myself I'm willing to believe it really is the best one.
    If you don't feel like spending so much on pencils, here's what I usually do:
    Buy thicker-than-usual paper - any weight does it for me Buy any HB KOH-I-NOOR pencil Draw my thing Scan it Digitalize/vectorize it with Illustrator or Photoshop Print the final result
  4. dw96's post in How to auto apply Lens corrections during upload in Lightroom? was marked as the answer   
    The simple answer is - you can't. At least not automatically. Here's what you can try:
    1) Import all images
    2) Click on the first one and go to the Develop module
    3) Scroll all the way down to lens correction and tick the boxes you want
    4) Go over to the left in the Presets tab and create a new preset
    5) Name it something like (Lens Correction) and keep the brackets - that way it will conveniently stay on top of any other presets you might have
    6) Mark all of your newly imported photos (Ctrl+A)
    7) Apply the newly created preset to them
    [OPTIONAL] Run around the house in your underwear, jumping in joy, because I just saved you from having to manually apply lens correction to 437 photos
  5. dw96's post in Apps which were previously installed and deleted was marked as the answer   
    What is left on the device is probably just cache information or any other data related to the app. I believe iTunes shows INSTALL insread of FREE because it's the same when you purchase an app: once I pay my 99 cents for it I don't have to pay for it anymore even if I delete it from the iPod/iPhone. Simply spoken - it counts as a purchse which took 0.00 from your balance.

    As for the leftover files - you can easily delete those in Android with the built-in file manager, but in order to get to any leftover IPA files on iOS you will need to jailbreak your device and either SSH your device, or install a Cydia app called iFile. Another option would be to do a complete reset via DFU mode, but that's a little too much.

    If there really are some leftover files, your iPhone will probably delete them automatically, should you start running low on space.

    Have you upgraded to Service Pack 1? I'm not sure if this appears in Windows Update, but you can get it from here:
  7. dw96's post in Is there any good easy to use backup sync software was marked as the answer   
    I know of a good app called FolderClone. It's pretty good and I think it might help you:

    The downside is that the app is shareware. I'll let you know if I find any free alternatives, though.

  8. dw96's post in Can splitters go both ways? was marked as the answer   
    Unfortunately you can't. Splitters go only one way and there is no way to reconfigure them to do their job "in reverse". In this case (with the amazon cable you posted) the cable is designed to have the female part of it as an input and the two male ends as an output.

    Edit: +1 vote on your question, though. I believe this is something a lot of people should know.
  9. dw96's post in Partitioning Drive in Windows 7 was marked as the answer   
    Here's a simple way to do it directly with Disk Management:
    1) Open the Start Menu, type in "disk partitions" (without the brackets)
    2) Click on the first option (should be "Create and format disk partitions")
    3) Right click on the drive volume and pick "Shrink Volume":

    4) In the "Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB", enter the size (in MB) which you'd like your new drive to be :

    5) Now click "Shrink"6) After the process is completed, you should see a black volume saying "Unallocated"
    7) Right click on "Unallocated" and select "New Simple Volume"
    Go through the wizard and choose the Size, Drive Letter and Volume Label:

    9) If you did everything correctly, your new drive should be up and ready:

  10. dw96's post in How-to assing cells in Excel to correspond with file name? was marked as the answer   
    The answer would simply be No. I think there was some kind of trick that allowed you to save a document with the name of the first sheet, but hell if I remember how it worked...
