I recently had a friend who wanted to find out his windows product key. his sticker had worn off his computer and he needed to reinstall Windows. There is a great tool for this called the Magical Jellybean Keyfinder. I have been using it for years and it has just been a great tool. It will not only find wour Operating System product key but it will also find the keys for all Windows based products such as Office, Visio and Project. Its a simple tool to get and use but it is a real blessing in many IT situations.
I recently had to do a install of VMWare server with 4 guest operating systems and once I got it all going I found that the arrow keys were not working. On some hosts they were mapped to control or shift and on the other hosts they just did not work. After a little searching I found a simple solution. Below I outline how to fix this small issue.
I am always annoyed by the caps lock on a laptop. I seem to hit it about 100 times a day while typing. It is especially annoying when writing code. I decided to peek into the registry and map the key from its key number to zero which effectively disables it. After disabling it via the registry I found a .reg file online which someone made to map the caps lock key to the control key. This didn’t really interest me so I modified it to map to nothing.
Setting up Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections to your office is becoming more common as work from home jobs expand. Typically the IT guy at your work should be able to provide you the necessary information needed to connect to your office securely such as IP address to connect to, username, password, and possibly domain. Once you make the VPN connection it will be as if you are working on a computer at the office so you can use things at the office such as network printers, file servers, etc.
