Power User and Superuser Code & Tips

Here we will be compiling a list of items which will be highly useful for people who are power users or superusers.

Power Users or Powerusers are people who command full control of their computer; e.g. a poweruser uses command prompt, advanced windows variables like shell extensions, etc; hacking software to get it to work how they want it; etc.

Superusers are like power users but it refers to more than just power over your own environment but also a wider scope. For example, a superuser make be good at developing programs and applications, hacking web software to get it to work how they want it, programming web servers, etc.
