Safari Shortcuts For The Safari Web Browser On Windows Operating System

There are many references to Safari shortcuts for OSX on Apple computers but not as many for Safari shortcuts on Windows computers so I figured it may help some people to have a reference for Safari shortcuts on computers running Windows. The below shortcuts have been specifically tested on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and Windows XP Professional 32-bit  but I assume the below Safari web browser shortcuts will work on any version of Windows including all variations of Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 7. Many of the Safari shortcuts for Apple are identical to the Safari shortcuts for Windows below. There are however many Safari shortcuts that are different because of keys being named differently on Apple keyboards versus Windows keyboards.

Include Underscores While Using Markdown Without Them Being Bold Or Italic Indicators For Text

I am fairly new to Markdown and have really just been becoming more familiar with Markdown while posting here on Question Defense’s [Engage][1] site. So far I really like Markdown and have been impressed with how user friendly it becomes as you learn the Markdown tricks as I call them including asterisks or underscores for bolding or italicizing, brackets for links/URLs, and numbered lists simply using 1., 2., 3., etc. While the Markdown learning curve has been fairly steep for me
An issue I ran into on my last post was the fact that I was posting some PayPal variables that included underscores within the variable.

I am fairly new to Markdown which is a lightweight markup language. I have really just started becoming more familiar with Markdown while posting or replying to articles in the Question Defense Engage section. Markdown is the markup language used on Engage to format the posted questions, posted responses, comments, and pretty much anywhere that content data is entered. So far I really like Markdown and have been impressed with how user friendly it becomes as you learn the Markdown tricks as I call them including asterisks or underscores for bolding or italicizing, brackets for links/URLs, and numbered lists simply using 1., 2., 3., etc. While the Markdown learning curve has been fairly steep for me the more I use it the more Markdown is sticking with me.

Search Term Suggestions & Statistics: Alternatives To The Overture Keyword Selector Tool

A long time ago I used to use the Overture Keyword Selector Tool to review keywords I was running ads for. The Overture Keyword Selector would allow you to type in a keyword or group of keywords to see how many times that keyword(s) or like keywords had been searched in a specific time period. This can be useful not only for ads that you may be running but it can also be useful for content in articles that you write. The more you use keywords that are popular the more traffic you can generate. The Overture Keyword Selector Tool is no longer available so below are two alternatives that provide a similar service.

Stop Amazon Jungle Disk Backup Application From Starting Automatically On Windows 7

I have been using Amazon’s Jungle Disk as a backup application for awhile now and have been really satisfied by how it has worked to date. I first used Jungle Disk on Windows XP primarily but now I have it configured and working properly on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. I not only was using the backup portion of Jungle Disk but I also had the online drive configured as well on multiple computers but I found that I rarely used the drive so I have been investigating the configuration and resources that the application uses.
