- 10 crazy IT security tricks that actually work
The longer a person serves as a network admin, the more tips and tricks they are likely to pick up along the way.
Administrators are constantly learning these days. Server virtualization , desktop VDI , Exchange , SharePoint -- it's a never-ending barrage of new material to take in. With so many products, it's easy to fall behind on learning all the features of the "old" Windows 7, so let me bring you up to speed.
Here are the top 20 tips and tricks that you should know for Windows 7; if you want to see my favorite three, just watch the video. Taskbar icons have keyboard shortcuts. To open these applications through shortcut keys, simply hold down the Windows key and press the number on the keyboard that corresponds with the icon, working from the Start "orb" button to the right. You can move items on the taskbar. I know it feels like this was already possible in Windows XP and Vista, but this actually is a new Windows 7 feature.
Paint and WordPad use the new ribbon interface. In addition, Paint has new brushes, and both applications have new Save As options. However, you still can't open more than one document or picture at a time.
There is a great new tool for supporting family members and friends from afar. Click the Start button and type psr to open the Problem Steps Recorder. This tool can capture step by step even take screenshots what a person is doing.
When they stop the recording, the session is bundled as an MHTML file and compressed for easy emailing back to support, which in most cases is you.
You can have more than one clock on your notification area. For those of us who work with people in other time zones, you can display clocks for each of those regions. Click the clock in the notification area and choose Change Date and Time Settings. Select the Additional Clocks tab to display as many as two other clocks and to set their time zones.
This feature actually came with Vista, but few people know about it. There's a fast way to run a program using administrator privileges.
To open an application with administrator permissions, you usually locate it through the Start menu, right-click the application, and choose Run as Administrator from the contextual menu. However, you can also simply type the name in the Instant Search bar at the base of the Start menu and press Ctrl-Shift-Enter. There is a replacement to the Security Center called the Action Center.
Located in the Control Panel, it provides both security and maintenance information for your system. It also provides links to many other features such as backup settings. You can reach it quickly by typing uac in the Instant Search bar. This slider is set by default to a less annoying setting than what Vista had, but you can bring the settings back to Vista mode, leave it in Windows 7 mode which prompts you only if an action is attempted beyond your input , or lower the settings to the bottom and turn off the UAC security altogether to what I like to call "Mac mode" yes, I know the Mac's UAC equivalent prompts users for the same kinds of actions as UAC's Windows 7 mode.
Note that the slider is also available in the Action Center. You can quickly turn on and off certain Windows apps. Related: Windows Small and Medium Business.

Charles Babbage, the father of the modern computer, once said, "Propose to a man any principle, or an instrument, however admirable, and you will observe the whole effort is directed to find a difficulty, a defect, or an impossibility in it. If you speak to him of a machine for peeling a potato, he will pronounce it impossible: If you peel a potato with it before his eyes, he will declare it useless, because it will not slice a pineapple. The world of network security is no different. Offer a new means for IT defense , and expect to meet resistance.
