Screen Clipping Shortcut Key in OneNote 2013 not working in Windows 8.1

Because in Windows 8.1 the Shortcut Windows Key + S is used for Windows Search it is not going to work anymore with OneNote. You can change the key binding in OneNote easily in the registry to Windows Key + A.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\OneNote\Options\Other]
"ScreenClippingShortCutKey"=dword:00000041

This tutorial is for OneNote 2013 if you should have a different version of OneNote you just need to adjust the Version number above.

Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments message in Outlook

You can change this setting in the registry as following:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Security]
"Level1Remove"=".exe;.reg"

You might have to change the version number of the Registry Key. The example above is for version 15 which means it is for Outlook 2013.

GPO Network Drive Mapping over DFS isn’t working

I experienced the problem that it didn’t map one network drive over GPO. I searched for a long time and found out the problem was that the GPO didn’t like the backslash at the end.

Wrong

\\Domain\data\sharename\

Right

\\Domain\data\sharename

After that it worked like a charm;-)

SSH Socks Server doesn’t work

You created the right tunnel:
ssh user@sub.example.com –p 80 –D 6666

Note: I picked port 80 for my environment because it isn’t usually blocked by firewalls. So you can easily bypass them.

Finally you have pointed the proxy of your browser to the right tunnel but it still doesn’t work.
127.0.0.1:6666

It took me a while to figure it out, but the solution was quite simple. You need to leave all proxy settings blank, except the socket setting. Now it works like a charm;-)

How to create a Managed Service Account

New since Win2k8 R2

Instead of using User Accounts for services you can create Managed Service Accounts now. The advantage is that it also changes the password every 30 days automatically like in the computer accounts. You can find the managed user accounts here:
Active Directory User and Computers\Managed Service Accounts

1. Run Active Directory Module for PowerShell
2. Add-KDSRootKey
    
     For LAB Environment to not wait the 10 hours to repliacte type instead:
     Add-KDSRootKey –EffectiveTime ((Get-Date).AddHours(-10))
2. New-ADServiceAccount –Name WebTest –DNSHostname servername –Passthru

    Without –Passtrhu you don’t have any feedback

3. Add-ComputerServiceAccount –identity web01 –ServiceAccount WebTest –Passthru

You can check the settings in more details if you run adsiedit.msc.

Now you can use this service for example for services.

1. Run services.msc

2. Right Click on a Service\Properties\Log On\
    This Account:

     domain\yourcreatedaccount$

3. You don’t need to put a password
