By John TraenkenschuhAug 10, 2015

Windows 8 was envisioned as a desktop OS capable of fighting the consumers' fling with Tablets. Now that the war is against Tablets AND PC's, can Windows 10 draw consumers to it?

Windows 7: How To Delete Item Not Found Using CMD

By Brad YaleJan 22, 2015

Every operating system contains errors. One of the more common errors found within Windows OS's is the "item not found" or the "file not found" error. The error typically shows itself when a user tries to delete a file only to find it cannot be deleted when prompted with the following error message: "Could Not Find This Item: This Is No Longer Location in {insert_directory_here}. Verify the item's location and try again."

Well, for those of you who want to delete the file without verifying the item location, below is a quick video tutorial showing you how to delete the item in question.

A Chat with Sue Hanley: Reigning Queen of SharePoint Governance

By Joan MurrayAug 23, 2013

Last week I had a few minutes (literally) to catch up with Susan Hanley at SPTechCon. Sue is one of three authors (with Scott Jamison and Chris Bortlik) of “Essential SharePoint 2013”, now on its third edition.  Sue is a bit of an enigma.  Her appearance is that of a composed, somewhat reserved lady, but once she starts talking, boy is she animated!  You are immediately aware that you're in the presence of someone who is hugely passionate about SharePoint.

More Compelling Windows 9 Features

Keynote - SPTechCon from Boston

By Joan MurrayAug 12, 2013

I attended Joel Oleson’s keynote this morning at SPTechCon in Boston.  I always enjoy attending keynotes, as they generally provide a soup-to-nuts overview (marketing spew aside) on new products.  Plus, it's fun to gauge interest in a new release or feature set based on the "ahs" or "exasperated sighs" of the studio audience. Joel Oleson (a.k.a SharePointJoel), if you haven’t heard of him, is a bit of a SharePoint hero and a prolific blogger; a guy definitely worth following if you use SharePoint.
