Dave's Technophorical Times

A blog about Microsoft's Technologies!
SharePoint :: MVC :: ASP.NET :: IIS :: SQL Server :: Visual Studio :: MS Access

Specificy for Windows 7.

Please try Disable the generation of thumbs.db files by the Local Group Policy Editor and your problems will be resolved. They are only generated for compatibility with outdated applications, and are most certainly NOT needed for Windows operation.

Run "Group Policy" - select Edit Group Policy when it comes up.

From here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2009/07/01/using-multiple-monitors-in-remote-desktop-session/   

If your RDP's "Use all my monitors for the remote session" is disabled you can get around it as follows.

1. Create an RDP file with your specific connection.
2. Right click on the .rdp file and select Open with Notepad.
3. Add the following 2 lines to the bottom.

span monitors:i:1
use multimon:i:1

4. Save and then use!

Have a great day!



Windows only: If you've ever come back to your PC and noticed it was rebooted, you might be curious to know exactly when it was shut down?

To figure out when your PC was last rebooted, you can simply open up Event Viewer, head into the Windows Logs -> System log, and then filter by Event ID 6006, which indicates that the event log service was shut down—one of the last things that happens before a reboot. This technique won't help you figure out when there was a power outage, but you can filter by Event ID 6005 to see when the system was last turned on—that event shows when the event log service was started again.

It's a simple tip, but could come in handy if you come back to your PC and want to figure out whether Windows Update or somebody else restarted your PC in the middle of the night, or you're just curious how many times you've rebooted in the recent past.



  1. Type in secpol.msc /s
  2. Select "Local Policies" in MSC snap in
  3. Select "User Rights Assignment"
  4. Right click on "Log on as batch job" and select Properties
  5. Click "Add User or Group", and include the relevant user.

 

I'm posting this as some idiot at a stupid company (you know who you are!!) changed a Global Group policy and it broke the permissions for the Service Account used to run Task Manager Jobs.

Good Luck!



From this guy: http://www.bleepingtech.com/windows-8-fix-this-app-cant-open-for-built-in-administrator-account/

You might have encountered with this strange and annoying error.  This app can’t open for Built-in Administrator account please sign in with a different account and try again. or  while User Account Control is turned off. You need to turn on UAC . There is an easy solution for the error.

Solution for Windows 8 App Error:
•Hold the  Windows key + R  and in run dialog box type: secpol.msc
•Go to Local Policies –> Security Options –> Scroll down and find “User Access Control: Admin Approval Mode For built in…..”
•Double click on it and select enabled and the press ok
•Again press windows key and R and type  regedit
•Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\UIPI
•On the right hand side double click on default and change the value to 0x00000001(1) and click ok
•Restart your computer and all the apps should work.



This is how to fix your missing Right-Click Context Menu option. When you rebuild your profile this sometimes happens.

  • Click Start, type shell:sendto and press ENTER
  • Create a new text document (Right-click - New - Text document)
  • Rename the text file to Mail Recipient.MAPIMail
  • Click Yes when you see the following message:
  • If you change a file name extension, the file may become unusable.

    Are you sure you want to change it?

    Note that after renaming the file, the .MAPIMail extension hides automatically. The Mail Recipient entry should now be restored to the Send To menu.



    Wondering where the Oracle Drivers on on 64 bit Windows?

    C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and open the odbcad32.exe executible.

    Enjoy!
