Windows

Some useful windows stuff

Putty
Going the graphical way, making a launcher for putty is easy.
Start>run> notepad
start C:\putty.exe -ssh 192.168.10.220 -pw password -load sessionname

Make windows open in its own window
Have you encountered the situation when double clicking a folder opens in its own window. If you didn’t intentionally do this, and hate this from happening, the fix is a few types away :D.

Open regedit
Start>>Run>>regedit
Browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/Directory/shell
Edit the default value from open to none. This should fix it.


Running a program as a different user from command prompt

runas /user:Administrator programtorun.exe


Un-hiding Files

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

Make the CheckedValue to read 1, also it should be a dword in hex.
