@christian Hi Christian. I've [deliberately] never used LastPass, & never will, so i have no personal experience of its convenience... however i absolutely accept other users' preference for it on usability grounds. Other people might not, but i am entirely prepared to subvert convenience to security [if indeed i need to choose]. On my Android phone i use Keepass2Android, as it [IMO] has better functionality than KeePassDroid [which i used to use]. The way i keep the databases "pseudo-synchronised" [given deliberately no internet access per my strong preference, of the KPX pgm on my pc & the app on my phone], is 100% manual [& therefore almost certainly of no interest to most other people].
I'm sure my phone-usage scenario will appear simply weird to many users, but i limit its internet contact merely to low-volume occasional news- & Linux- site browsing, & never do any financial transactions of any kind with it [the vast majority of my intensive internet exposure occurs on my PCs]. Hence, my PC KPX database is in constant use, & every now & then i clone it, delete ALL financial items from said clone, then copy that file to my phone [either via Dolphin, or by MyPhoneExplorer (which btw i run direct in my distro via a dedicated WinePrefix i created for it)], & KP2A happily then reads said database file.
Again, i realise that pretty much everything i wrote above will likely seem unbelievably primitive & backward to most readers; that's ok - it works for me & does not need to work for others necessarily if they prioritise convenience over security. However, i simply do not trust Google [& i deplore Apple, so would never ever pay money for & use Apple stuff], & i most certainly do not trust the integrity of apps in PlayStore from stealing sensitive data off the phone, &/or being subject to MitM theft, so i decided that my phone would have no sensitive data to steal.
None of my diatribe above, nevertheless, should dissuade anyone IMO from using a dedicated password manager, as opposed to them bravely/naively trying to go it alone.

I realize this is way off topic, but I wanted to share it with you anyway.
No third party software needed and it works every time in Windows 10.
Creating and restoring an image only takes a few minutes from a SSD drive to an external USB3 drive. Here is the tutorial:
Create a system image in Windows 10
Install Classic Shell to avoid Windows 10 frustrations: http://www.classicshell.net/
Go to File History
(Create a shortcut on the desktop first)
Options, top right hand corner (*) – Set up File History
Turn on (File History is on)
System Image Backup (bottom left)
Create a system image
On a hard disk – Your external USB3 hard drive
On Your external USB3 hard drive you will find the folder “WindowsImageBackup”, but you cannot open it or restore from there
Restore a system image in Windows 10
Start or restart Windows while hitting F8 many times
Repair Your Computer – Enter
System Image Recovery
Click on Your user name – Password: Your password – Continue
Use the last available system image (recommended)
Please leave a comment if it also works for you.
Disk Cleanup path (in Windows 10)
Windows Administrative Tools
Files to delete
Clean up system files
Actually these two programs are all you need to cleanup your PC.
Over the years I have tried almost every paid and unpaid “System Cleaner” and I have never experienced any improvement in speed, smoothness or “Repairing Issues”.
Most of these programs show you there are terrible software problems and then “Solve” these problems.
It may give you a good feeling at that moment, but it’s mainly nonsense.
An extreme example is “Reimage Repair”.
I bought it, tried it for a week and got a refund because it did not solve anything that the above 2 programs can do.
My advice is to only run Disk Cleanup and CCleaner.
After that you should create a System Image, as I have explained before.
And this advice is shared with many real experts on the Internet.

Cmd - Run as administrator
netsh int ip reset logfile.txt
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
netsh winsock reset catalog
Download and install the latest Router firmware.
Reset the router every once in a while by unplugging it from the wall socket for 1 minute and plugging it back in again.
Immediately buy a SSD drive
You see a man photo with his great 7 pack on internet and instantly say "Gimp fail". I would agree to any Adobe hater.
Until then, I'll say Adobe Photo Editor product really darn good. :laugh:
What people hate is "browser" plugins. From Macromedia, Adobe, MS apps, Java, RealPlayer, QuickTime, etc. is their browser plugins who make the most cry.
The real product is self usually just find. Use it if it fit your need.
So many words and so much vehemence against the Microsoft company. Does MS want Windows 10 to be successful OR does Microsoft want Windows 10 to conform to the original poster's wishes? Microsoft's Windows 10 is already successful and it continues to grow exponentially so it has no worries in that department. Most computers in the world run Windows and as older Windows systems are increasingly insecure and problematic, Windows 10 will be adopted. There is no question but that Windows 10 will become the most used operating system of all time.
I assume you mean "LightScribe"? I've been using it at some point and I still have a LightScribe compatible DVD writer installed in my PC, but to be honest I stopped recording discs years ago. I found USB flash drives and external hard drives more convenient and useful, and in most cases, they completely suit my needs.
I haven't even bothered installing the LightScribe drivers after switching to Win10 some year and a half ago or even earlier when I moved from Win7 to Win8. In many cases it didn't even work properly, some discs had only half of the image printed or they were completely blurred, so it was quite frustrating to get the output right and I remember throwing away a handful of CDs or DVDs that were printed incorrectly with LightScribe. That's why I'm not missing it. 😒
I think, I still have some spare discs laying around in the depths of my closets - maybe I'll need them one day, I don't know... 😄
So what do You want to achieve?
Maybe just restore Vivaldi window before sending key?
1. Find Vivaldi main window handle
3. Replace showCmd with SW_RESTORE
7. Replace showCmd with SW_MINIMIZE
The free alternatives (and powerful in their own right) that I use rather than the big, expensive applications are:
Free Office (by Softmaker) - smaller package, less resource-hungry, and more MS Office-compatible than OpenOffice or LibreOffice. Paint.NET - VERY capable free image processing software. Does essentially everything.
I have GIMP installed, and it's very powerful, but I'm not terribly fond of it. The learning curve is quite long, I feel. Paint.NET is much more intuitive in my view.
Media Player Classic
Any Video Converter Free (converts any cell phone, tablet or camera video to any format that your end user can actually play) - I use free version 3.5.2. There is an actual reason why I decided not to use later versions, but I can't remember what it was.
Paint.NET is a good alternative, but not more powerfull than some editos online, like SumoPaint, Pixlr and others.
I know XnView, is a good visor, but IrfanView is better.
I´m using a lot of utilities online too.
For videoconverting and editing for example

I also have multiple VB VM's setup on my Tower's 2 TB HDD, & occasionally play with these other distros therein… but i always feel much more fulfilled back in my main Mint KDE OS on the SSD: Linux Mint x64 17.3 “Rosa” Cinnamon, elementary OS Freya, Linux Lite x64, Linux Mint x64 17.3 “Rosa” Mate`, Fedora x64, Chapeau 23 x64.
Still on my future VM To Do List [also just to learn about & muck about with] are: Apricity OS, Bodhi Linux, Gentoo Linux, Kali Linux, Manjaro Linux (i tried an older version a couple of years ago & found it stressful], openSUSE, Peppermint, Qubes OS, VectorLinux, & Voyager.
So far i really hate the GNOME3 interface [it obstructs rather than enhances my workflows], find GNOME2 boring [sorry!], find Cinnamon unintuitive & obstructive. The one alternative distro that absolutely surprised me, given i'd expected so little of it, is Linux Lite – wowee it packs a lot into a small footprint; amazing.
