It seems the problem came from VMware player and not windows as I thought. I restarted the program and now the key works again... Don't know what happened exactly unfortunately. I checked the ~/.vmware/preferences and /etc/vmware/config files, no rule was added to ignore any key (even if I only saw the possibility to deactivate hotkeys), maybe it was a ...

According to my tests, it can be set in Group policy, but is ignored by MusNotification which controls reboot after update.

The accepted answer is wrong. IE does have its' own DNS cache, which can not be managed by ipconfig. Refer to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/263558 SUMMARY In earlier versions of Internet Explorer (Internet Explorer 3.x), DNS host entries are cached for 24 hours by default. In many cases, this is too long. During this period, some host entries stop ...

You wrote the sharp key (I've always called it a [hash key])(https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=hash+key&espv=2&biw=1680&bih=945&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiYtYKpxrPMAhXKdz4KHbiBBfsQ_AUIBigB) but I guess the actual key isn't the problem. It's the fact any key isn't working. You need a keyboard mapping tool I think. I ...

Whatever the reason for the malfunction is, but it seems it has something to do with the long file names. The solution that worked: start CMD.EXE, change into the containing directory, type "dir /x" to display the short file names, then use the short file name to delete the directory. Done. :)

Since HP's cable is bloody expensive, you can add the pull-up inside the monitor itself. This allows it to work with any DP cable. The pull-up that worked for me was 10k (even if the specs say it should be 100k - I tried and the monitor wasn't detected). Solder it between C278 (it's connected to DP pin 17, AUXn) and unfitted nearby resistor that goes to DP ...

While the command works fine under GnuPG on Linux, it fails in Windows.

I think you are using Windows target machine. You can create a rule to log in Windows firewall for incoming ICMP request. Use the below microsoft link how to configure the rule with log https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff428145%28v=ws.10%29.aspx Also you can use third party utilities & sniffing tools.

The only way of knowing all that is to log all the changes the installer does to the system and then, when the program is being uninstalled, undo all those changes according to this log. All else is just guessing. This is, actually, the method the uninstaller for every program works, at least in theory - there is a list of folders/files/registry-entries ...

@Vinayak, If using the "send to" option, you would probably need to add the line cd /d %1 to the start of the batch command so that it runs under the target path. my current batch file looks like this: @echo off set targetfolder=%1 cd /d %1 del *.txt pause not sure if i need the "set targetfolder=%1" in there but it works so I'm keeping it that way :) ...

The purpose of the boot prefetcher is too load data which are used in later boot phases when the PC hangs at a task during earlier boot stages. This is done, because normal HDDs are slow reading random files from the drive. So loading them before they are really needed speeds up boot. Using a SSD eliminates this bottleneck of and here Windows doesn't ...

yes, you must logon to Windows. Configure your Windows to automatically logon to your system with Autologon Enter your password and click on Enable. After the optimization is done, run autologon again and click on disable.

I would recommend Default Programs Editor for this task. It is both more user friendly and arguably safer than editing the registry directly. Choose Context Menu Select the extension you want to change. Choose Add... Give your command a Title, browse to the batch file and optionally pick an icon to represent your command. Save the context menu to ...

Actually, the current answer isn't out of date. I tried the exact same thing on Windows 10 and was able to add Run Batch script to the context menu of all folders in Windows.

You can go into the Settings for the VM that you care about, and make sure it is set to "Save the Virtual Machine State." When your physical machine shuts down it will suspend the VM and when you bring it back up it'll be in the same state as when you shutdown. See below for the screen you are looking for. It's at the bottom of the left hand panel.

Your batch file is interpreted by Windows command interpreter, the cmd.exe, line-by-line. So once winscp.com line is reached, the interpreter runs winscp.com and waits for it to exit (what it never does on its own). If it had exited, the interpreter would keep executing the other commands failing the most (as they are not valid Windows commands). The lines ...

You can set the boot order of your virtual machine(s)... for instance on Virtual Box you choose the 'system' properties of the guest and on the 'Motherboard' tab you can choose the boot order. Either set it just before you boot the machine to hit the CD/DVD first... or leave it at that setting always and don't have a connected CD/DVD or image unless you ...

Windows does not natively support this. Control Panel software that comes with hardware usually can't distinguish programs either, only ports. This means that in order to get this to work, you will have to work with software such as Virtual Audio Cable to create virtual ports and redirect one program such as skype to use this audio device, while windows ...

When altering DNS settings, you should always keep in mind that such changes take time to propagate over the internet. It can take from 2 to 48 hours before changes are replicated through all hops on the internet. ipconfig /flushdns can be used to renew your DNS configuration with that from your router/modem/server (depending on what your DNS servers are) ...

I'm assuming you aren't speaking of the CAPSLOCK key. That would be too obvious. You wish to change current text to upper case that is already on the screen to uppercase correct?

According to HP's website the HP DL380 G7 can accept "DDR3 Registered (RDIMM) and Unbuffered (UDIMM)" RAM sticks. My guess is that LRDIMM will not work, servers can be quite picky about RAM and LRDIMM is, I believe quad ranked. HP Gen8 servers can definitely support LRDIMM.

Try Toastify. From the website: "Toastify adds some missing functionallity to the Spotify client(Windows only). It shows a popup, toast style, dialog on track change and it allows you to use global hot keys for Play/Pause, Next, Previous etc." I've used it before to add hotkeys in Windows 7 and 8, works pretty well.
