comment Facebook versus Twitter: what are the main differences?
Please stop adding "Thanks" and "Regards" to your posts. They are unnecessary noise and will be edited out.

comment Facebook: posting versus linking versus sharing (and using Facebook for promoting one's image / self-advertising)?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about social marketing.

comment Twitter Web Client for Android: Weired question: Authorize SNS to use your account?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about an Android app.

comment Chrome Extension with Tabs copy through Keyboard Shortcut
Questions about Web browser extensions are off-topic here. I would direct you to Super User, but you're looking for help in finding an extension that meets your needs. Software Recommendations would seem to be a better choice.

comment What information does the web able to access a computer?
This might be a better question to ask at Information Security.

comment Open Recent instead of My Drive in Google Drive
Not that I can see. Other apps offer a setting like "use X as start page". I don't see any such option in Google Drive. Admittedly, I only have the consumer version; I'm not using Google Apps.

comment Open Recent instead of My Drive in Google Drive
Why not just make yourself a shortcut that points to the URL you want?

comment Keyboard shortcut to search for selected/highlighted text
Questions about web browser functionality belong on Super User.

comment How to disable adding the current computer into the list of trusted machines by default?
I expect not. The only way I can think to do it would be by some custom, local, JavaScript, which you obviously wouldn't have on a new computer.

comment Why does Google Books occasionaly change some books, which had previews, to no preview?
"Why" questions like this are generally not answerable by anyone but the source, in this case Google. All you're going to get here is speculation.

comment Do posts you're tagged in that you hide from your timeline still show up in your friend's news feeds?
I would expect so. You've not removed the tag, just hidden them (from your) view. That shouldn't affect what other people see. (I don't have a source I can point to, hence this is just a comment.)

Why can't you put the instructions here in this answer? What happens when that link stops working?

comment My posts are not showing up in my friends news feed on Facebook. Why?
Considering how labyrinthine Facebook's privacy settings can be, it may not be practical to delineate all of those settings.

comment My posts are not showing up in my friends news feed on Facebook. Why?
I don't think there's enough information here for us to answer with anything remotely useful. Exactly what "configuration is correct"? Even assuming you're sharing what you post to the right privacy level, your friend may have asked that less of your stuff appears in their feed. And, let us not forget that Facebook has its own algorithm for what it thinks is important enough to put something in someone's feed. So, honestly, without details as to the relevant settings for you and your friend, I doubt anyone can come up with a cogent answer.

comment How to print 24 hours on week calendar in Google Calendar?
I've decided to spend 200 of my own reputation on that question. Hopefully it'll get some more traction and some better answers. You might help by sharing the URL to social media and perhaps forums that you frequent.

comment Outlook web mail mail box full message even after removing all mail items
It sounds like you need to reach out to your mail administrator and see what's taking up all of your allotment.

Page, or group? Because if you mean group, then your answer is here: Changing privacy settings of a Facebook Group from secret to public

comment How to print 24 hours on week calendar in Google Calendar?
Unfortunately, you need to spend your reputation to add a bounty to a question, and you don't have any. The highest-voted answer on the duplicate only mentions wincalendar as an example of an app that could be used. Certainly there are Linux equivalents? The rest of that answer is not Windows-focused. One other answer suggests a Mac solution. The other doesn't have any OS-specific elements. This is Web Apps, and ideally answers shouldn't rely on the underlying OS. If you need a specific solution for your OS, maybe you should ask instead on Unix & Linux.

comment Will emails from previous holders gmail account appear If I make a fresh one?
Further, Google does not recycle account names. If you close your account, the name will not be released to you as a new account. You could re-open it so long as you satisfied their policies to do so. What you should probably ask, instead, is how to get off of these mailing lists that don't offer a way to unsubscribe.

comment How to jump directly to a gmail label in “Move to”?
Sure, but then you've only got to up-arrow one time. It's not a perfect solution; it's a partial workaround. That's why I left it as a comment.
