I've been writing this column for almost 7 months and have been gratified by the feedback I receive from subscribers who want to comment directly to me about the topics and tips I discuss. When I first started writing the column, I asked a few questions about who you are and what you want to see covered. I received a few hundred responses that gave me a good picture of the Win2K Pro UPDATE audience. Well, in the past 7 months, we've added quite a few subscribers, and I have a few new questions for you and a place to respond.
- Do you have a home network?
- Do you telecommute?
- Do you support users who telecommute?
- Do you support users with home networks (or remote small office networks)?
- If you do any of the above, do you have specific concerns or problems relating to support issues? Product choices? Configuration and management? Other?
Just click "Post a comment" and give us your feedback. We're really interested, and I guarantee that I'll read them and respond to you directly, if necessary.
This week's tip:
Here's a little personalization you can do that won't affect your work, but you can have some fun with it. Or if you're a corporate person, you can place your business name on an oft-used application.
You'll notice that when you run Internet Explorer (IE), it always displays the page name you're viewing followed by "- Microsoft Internet Explorer." You can change that heading to anything you want: a company name, an identification message (I actually use the computer name so I can tell which machine I'm on when using an inexpensive keyboard/video/mouse—KVM—switch in my home office). To change the text:
- Launch regedt32.exe.
- Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main.
- From the Edit menu, select Add Value.
- Name the new value Windows Title and make sure it's a REG_SZ data type.
- Enter the text you want to display as the string value.
- Launch a new IE window and you'll see your change.
- To remove the string, just delete the Windows Title value.
