No this isn't an article on Pointy Haired Bosses, but on Managing Windows.
Dave, a good friend of mine recently gave me a great tip on how to easy access a lot of useful information in Windows with only 2 clicks. This is the "Computer Management" feature in Windows. This feature is present in at least Windows 2000 and Windows XP. To get to it, do the following:
- Right click on 'My Computer'
- Click on the 'Management' menu item.
This brings up the "Computer Management' application. From here you have immediate access to a wealth of info on your computer. This info includes:
- Event Viewer
- Shared Folders
- Local Users and Groups
- Performance Logging
- Device Manager
- Removable Storage
- Disk Defragmenter
- Disk Management
- Microsoft SQL Servers (if installed)
- Internet Information Services (if installed)
I hope you all find this little tip as useful as I did. Thanks Dave!
