HowTo: Fix DVD/CD with Live filesystem (Packet/UDF) on Windows
10 Οκτωβρίου 18 09:33 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
The other day I found how easy it is to use a Live CD/DVD (where packet writing occurs when adding stuff) instead of a Mastered one (where all is kept to be written when you close the disk) on Windows. It feels more like using a USB flash disk and should be more safe regarding […]

Fix: Temporary or Local roaming profile message after Windows login
18 Αυγούστου 18 08:09 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
  Researching how to solve a “You have been logged on with a temporary profile” message on a system set up to use a roaming profile (and after I had first checked/fixed the filesystem for errors which is the classic cause for that when using local profiles) I came across this article: http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2011/07/how-to-reset-a-roaming-profile-in-windows-7 Near the […]

20 Νοεμβρίου 17 03:15 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Sometime ago, I was receiving errors 0x8e5e03fa and 0x800703fa on several pending updates at Windows 10’s Update pane (found at Settings / Updates & Security / Windows Update from the Start menu). The updates history wasn’t showing many more details, but could see Knowldege Base article numbers (KBxx) for some pending cummulative updates. Trying to […]

Gotcha: Calling a label in a batch file fails to redirect output to pathless file
24 Μαΐου 16 07:06 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
In case this bites you too with a "Path not found" error, note that calling a label in a batch file, fails if you redirect its output (useful to log the output of the batch file to a file) and not use a full path for the file to redirect to @echo off call :process […]

Suggestion: Add Fullscreen and Pin buttons on Titlebar of Windows
09 Δεκεμβρίου 15 05:53 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Here are some suggestions I’ve sent via Windows Insider feedback app for Windows 10: 1) Add the Fullscreen button to titlebar of ALL windows, not just the ones of Windows 8.1 Store apps. UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps don’t seem to show zoom button on their titlebar (to make it and any borders autodisappear and […]

Managed .NET Speech API links

(this is my answer at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14771474/voice-recognition-in-windows) I’m looking into adding speech recognition to my fork of Hotspotizer Kinect-based app (http://github.com/birbilis/hotspotizer) After some search I see you can’t markup the actionable UI elements with related speech commands in order to simulate user actions on them as one would expect if Speech input was integrated in WPF.

Fix: How to remove Trovigo.com, SearchProtect, restore Internet Options
14 Μαΐου 14 09:35 πμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Trovigo.com is an unwanted search engine hijacker that renders Internet Options of Windows / Internet Explorer inaccessible. To restore them on an older Windows XP installation, one way that I’ve found to work is to update Internet Explorer to a newer version, aka IE 8 (say via the embedded Windows Update facility or Microsoft Update […]

HowTo: Drop files onto Silverlight controls
27 Μαρτίου 14 05:14 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
I was recently adding drop-files support to ClipFlair Studio, so I had to do some research on the related API that is available to Silverlight apps. Silverlight supports a limited set of Drag-and-Drop interaction with the operating system (supposedly for security reasons, but most probably because of the classic cross-platform implementation pains). For example it […]

fix: Microsoft mouse right-click failure
28 Μαΐου 13 03:42 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
The other day my Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 (was either a gift from Microsoft Hellas or had ordered it myself from Microsoft Company Store with the credit Microsoft used to give pro-crisis to MVPs) started behaving erratically, failing most of the times to right-click and sometimes doing left clicks instead with some delay, or […]

HowTo: Remove Skype from Windows taskbar, keep as Taskbar tray icon
25 Νοεμβρίου 12 10:42 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
An annoying feature of Skype of recent Skype versions is that by default it shows an icon on the Windows taskbar apart from the one at the taskbar tray while you’re signed in. This also means it shows in the ALT+TAB key sequence when switching between open windows, which you might not always want to [...]

Pinned tabs and Split-Screen
17 Φεβρουαρίου 12 04:12 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Since widescreen format in monitors gets more and more common, how about a twist to the classic tabbed windows UI? Imagine being able to pin a tab and have it move to a side-view area in the same window. That are would keep the pinned tabs separated from the rest using a splitter / split-view [...]

Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier (FCIV)
09 Σεπτεμβρίου 11 06:10 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
I recently came across a very useful Microsoft tool (FCIV) that can compute and store (as XML) checksums (MD5, SHA1 or both hashes) of folders/files you want and can also be used to later on verify the checksum lists to see if they’ve been tampered with. Would be nice to have a GUI wrapper around [...]

Renaming a file but preserving its sort order on Windows
05 Οκτωβρίου 10 05:19 μμ | Μπιρμπίλης Γεώργιος | 0 σχόλια   
Sometimes you may wish to rename a file to mark it as being not yet finished or in need to be worked on etc. In such a case on Windows if you want to make sure the filename shows first/last depending on the sort order you can prefix its name with a "_", an underscore [...]
