Ken Howe's Operating System Tips
Welcome to Ken Howe's Operating System Tips. This set of articles and tips deals with things you can do with the operating system to improve your productivity as a developer or changes you can make to the OS from your program to make it more integrated with the OS. If you have a tip to share with other developers then please eMail me the details and I will add it to the site. The articles are listed by the date last modified and the OS column informs you which Operating systems the tip will work for. All tips are used at your own risk, especially make sure you backup your registry before using any tips that require you to manually modify registry entries.
