After using the Microsoft Natural Multimedia Keyboard and the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 with a lot of love, I recently switched to the Microsoft Sculpt Desktop kit. I needed to get used to the new mouse and keyboard, but after a while I loved both of them. Unfortunately I experienced some problems with the keyboard. Especially when playing some simple games I encountered the keys of the keyboard where getting “stuck”. With “stuck” I mean, when not pressing the keys anymore, the computer still thinks I’m pressing the key. Luckily after some troubleshooting I found the solution.
Lately I encountered some problems with the Windows Store in Windows 8. The app starts, but it gets stuck on the loading screen. This problem is mentioned a lot, but the solution which worked for me was a bit hard to find.
Emptying the trash or recycle bin can be done by right clicking on the icon and hitting the
empty option. Almost everybody is familiar with this behavior but not everybody knows this can also be done from the command line.
There are a lot of complaints about Windows 8.1, but I actually think the new UI is a good move. Hopefully the eco-system will continue to expand and improve. Although there are some things I don’t like, the new “This PC” layout is one thing I love but at the 8.1 update they added the libary folders. Those folders aren’t much of a use for me, my pc is mostly used for development. Unfortunately there is no option anywhere available to disable this behavior, but with the registry we can achieve this.
Batch files are well known for managing and configuring client computers. Most of the system administrators are creating batch files on a regular basis for completing tasks for which they otherwise be doing them manually and therefore taking up a lot of time.
Recently I was requested to check if all the client computers were running a program on startup.
Applicaties op een pc houdt men, in verband met veiligheid, het liefst up-to-date. Ditzelfde geldt ook voor de Apps binnen de nieuwe Windows 8 interface. Maar hou weet je nou welke versie van de App is geïnstalleerd?
