    Answer ✓

    A managed switch is only really useful if you want to monitor your network ports, and / or want to segment your physical LAN into a number of virtual LANs, i.e. have more than one collision domain (or broadcast domain if you will) for some purpose.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
