Search for files with parenthesis in name by Erik Wikström
How do I search for files who's name contains a parenthesis? Entering (2) gives me all files containing 2 (which are a couple of houndred, while there should only be two or three with (2) in the name) since the parentheses have a special meaning when searching. Ive tried to use \ to escape them but no luck. -- Erik Wikström

Extended Tiles - broken - any fix? by Michael Hainsworth
The "Computer" window used to display as Extended Tiles. It still does, but the tiles are no longer "extended" -- they don't show the size of my hard disks or the remaining capacity, etcetera. My wife's account still displays Extended Tiles correctly, but mine does not. I love this view! Halp!

Rethinking the Recycle Bin by Yao Ziyuan
I just have some new thoughts about the handling of file deletion and undeletion in the 2010s. The key points a (1) ALMOST NEVER DELETE DATA PHYSICALLY. Today's new computers usually come with 500GB+ disk space, so deleting files to save space is less and less a necessity. So a new Recycle Bin concept could always preserve deleted files physically until there is really a space shortage or the...

I have found that a program C:\Windows\System32\sdclt.exe seems to be responsible for...
