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 use PowerShell help

The powershell help is actually very powerful. But most people don’t know how to use it and prefer to search in google. This approach will take you much more time.
To actually get the help in powershell you need to first download the help from the internet.

Update-Help –Force

If you don’t use the force command it allows you to download the help just every 24 hours.

After that you can run following commands with wildcards:
Help *Get-Service* –Full
Help *Get-Service* –Example
Help *Get-Service* –ShowWindow
Help *Get-Service* –Online

Syntax Description
image

Optional Parameters
All Parameters between [] are optional

Positional Parameter
You could run the command e.g. Get-Service without “–Name” like Get-Service WinRM and it would still work if the parameter is at the beginning. You can recognize this command because it is between [] bracket without the data type.

1, 2, 3
You have three different choices how to run the command.
