comment Why is “einfach” used in exclamative sentences?
Why oh why? Because so. – If I get it right, you're not interested into the origin of this meaning (and even then the question would better be written differently), but more about understanding its meaning. The question should be read something like "What is the meaning of "einfach" when used like that". A "why"-question is always, well, simply unsuited.

comment I wish to say “you can do it” but how I wish to is clearly wrong
I think the point is that "das" is not fully pronounced. Another example: "Das's so" for "Das ist so". There is a slight "e" or "ä" sound ("Dases so"). And similar is it with "schaffst's", also with a slight "e" or "ä" sound. I know the variation with "a", too, but that's dropping the "d" sound only.

comment Which one is correct – “dieser Laptop” or “diesen Laptop”?
I added the tag nominative, as this is the correct answer. Note, that dative would be "diesem" with an M, i.e. "diesem Laptop". Also, the verb does not matter at all as we're talking about the subject. The subject is always in nominative case. "Gehört mir nicht" is not dative, the only part which is dative is the object "mir".

Leider verstehe ich den Kern deiner Frage nicht. Aber "schön" ist in der Tat falsch. "Du schaffst das schon" ist richtig. Du kannst "schon" auch weglassen. "Du schaffst das". Alternative: "Du kannst es schaffen", ist aber etwas weniger motivierend.

@MarinosAv Dann ist Genitiv die elegantere Lösung.

comment What does “Geht es auch” mean?
I actually agree with close voters that this is general reference. I didn't vote for close and instead answered because "gehen" has so many definitions that it is indeed a bit difficult to find it, especially if you are a beginner.
