comment Dativ plural usage for Window (der Fenster ?)
You're missing the fact that it needs to be the accusative case, not the dative case. Also The plural form of das Fenster is die Fenster refers to both the nominative and the accusative case.

comment Quiz Shows: Antwort “einloggen”, log in, lock in
@J_LV Yes, I noticed that, too. The thing is that most entries I found provided some kind of user login that was reuqired before one could answer something. In the sense of "to answer XYZ you must log in first". So probably the term is not used often, but can be used.
