J. Peter Bruzzese Windows 7 Tips Session at TechEd 2010
J. Peter Bruzzese’s session Windows 7 at Mach 5 just kicked off and it’s a packed house. We’ve got every seat filled, people sitting on the floor in front, standing room only around the exterior of the room and people are even out in the hallway looking in!
The session is all about Windows 7 and the goal is to share 50 — yes 50! — tips and tricks in only 75 minutes!
Peter started out with a fun hack of the Windows Experience Index. It’s controlled by an .xml file that you can edit and give clunky system a perfect rating. If you’re interested in doing this yourself there is a step-by-step guide here: http://www.petri.co.il/artificially_raise_wei.htm
Here are a few more Windows 7 tips and tricks Peter shared:
- Ctrl+Shift+Enter to launch a executable with administrative privileges
- BitLocker To Go
- Web Slices in Internet Explorer 8
- Creating Rules with AppLocker
- Perfmon /report – to get a quick system report
- Using PowerShell in Windows 7
I’ll work with Peter to put together a quick screen cast of a few of the tips he did during the session for everyone who wasn’t able to join us at TechEd North America 2010 or if you missed the session.
If you’re down at TechEd 2010 stop by the Train Signal booth and meet myself, Peter, Kasia or any of the Train Signal team members.
