I actually recommend getting Visual Studio Express (Free) and creating an interface of your own. I recommend this because it doesn't involve third parties, and because it's free and very easy. The general idea would be to: create a VB project, set the window to no titlebar, set the window position fixed to X Y on some place on your screen, and put the ...

There's actually an old program that can fix this issue, I just couldn't recall the name of it until now. It's a utility from back in the day called WinExplorer, by Nirsoft. It has an option, under the Size & Position tab, called "Set To No Topmost" that will remove the "always on top" behavior from a window. I've just used it on Windows 7 to fix the ...

Take a look at ConEmu. In particular experiment with these settings: Appearance / Hide caption always Appearance / Scrollbar Appearance / Frame width Tab bar / Don't show Status bar / Show status bar (off) The screenshot below is what I managed to do. Ignore the icon at the upper right; that is from something else.

One option for what you could use is called a KVM switch. These are used to connect 2 or more computers, using one Keyboard, Video (output) and Mouse, with either a physical switch, or software switching capacity, depending on the device. Of course, whether you use the Keyboard and Mouse functionality is up to you, and you could have dedicated peripherals ...

You can, but you need a monitor with DVI and VGA inputs. VGA is normally a blue colour and DVI is normally white. You connect one computer with the VGA cable and the other to the DVI port using either the DVI port if there is one, or a DVI to VGA converter which costs very little. Make sure that the monitor you pick has an easy way to switch between ...

You can add a domain group to a local group via the unattend.xml file, eliminating the need for any scripting. Editing Unattend.xml via System Image Manager (SIM) After opening your unattend.xml in SIM, in the lower-left corner of the window, find the node for Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup. (Note: You should use the node corresponding to your image's ...

Lot's of folks describing the problem that has been pestering me for some time now, but not a lot of helpful fixes. However, I did go through and clean out a bunch of processes/backgrounds apps configured to startup with Windows. I haven't gone back through them one by one to identify the culprit, but for now the problem seems to be solved. I can alt+tab ...

More than likely, its the power at your home. Since one of your computers is working, you can try swapping the power supplies. If the one that didnt work now does, and the one that did work doesnt, than the offending power supply is having an issue with your home's power. You can buy another power supply and try it out. Alternatively, you can get a UPS ...

I also hate having anything on the desktop. I usually create Desktop toolbar on taskbar (right-click on empty taskbar space, Toolbars, Desktop) with the smallest possible size (you can change the toolbar size when the taskbar is not locked). When I press ยป, I have access to expandable Recycle Bin with appropriate icon (empty or full), with all right-click ...

Yes it is possible. Way back in the day MS had Active Desktop that could display webpage(s) as wallpaper. However, this has been long since discontinued. There are programs that appear to have this functionality. Just googling I found some. Here is one. I dont know if it works, you may get lucky.

Are you not allowed to use Ethernet or any connection at all? You can get two USB network cards and connect each other. (or pair USB to Ethernet converters as cheaper way) If you can't use any network, then all what comes to my mind is KVM.

After trying this one, I found another solution in the Microsoft community. Just wanted to share it: Open a run prompt with WIN+R Paste: control /name Microsoft.Personalization /page pageWallpaper Select "Solid Colors" Click "More". This should lead to an RGB input. Worked perfectly for me and gave me a few more options.

Yes you can was proper answer. Just had to do it myself and it's quite simple if you think about it. As I have somewhat larger scenario then one terminal server, then I created ASP page with gridview to manage the users (where they can manage icon integration themselves). The users are pulled from AD to SQL to table with (ID,ADUSER,WantsIcons). As for me, ...
