Index to Windows Power-User Series
Windows Power-Users take control of
their own machines and make the system run the way THEY want it to!
If they don't like how Windows does something, they can often correct it.
If there's a feature missing, they know how to find a program to solve the problem! ( I've also included some easy hacking pages below. )
Downloading the Power Toys from Microsoft.
Everyone SHOULD INSTALL AND MASTER a few of the most important tools included in this package!
" Command Prompt Here "
" Send To X " (especially Send to 'Any Folder') and
" Target " -> Opens folders that shortcuts point to.
" TWEAK UI " has some nice features like 'rebuild icon cache now' and a FAULT LOG. (Other features, such as the option to remove or change the ugly shortcut overlay on desktop shortcut icons, were immediately copied by third party software companies. Microsoft should have built these features directly into Windows option boxes!)
Starman's Free Tools
for Windows Page for missing features and programs to solve your problems.
( Read old DOS texts with diagrams using the Graphics Characters. Many Hackers prefer this font; now you can see it in Notepad too! There are a couple good choices from 5 new ones. )
I've even added a Patch program to do the work for you! (Note: Win NT doesn't need this fix!)
This will also show you how to change which Editor Notepad opens for Large files! ( I use TheGUN now! )
