DOS & WINDOWS TIPS:
add this line at the end of your autoexec.bat
file to add the
jdk compiler to your path so you don't have to type the full path c:\jdk\bin\javac
to run the java compiler.
add the line "doskey" to your autoexec.bat--this will give
you up-arrow previous command history to scroll through.
these little batch files may be helpful to making your windows environment
more productive. You can grab the whole set of batch files as a zip archive
make a text file called ls.bat and put the following lines
dir %1 |sort|more
save this in a directory in your path statement (like c:\windows\command)
and then you'll be able to type ls at the dos prompt *and* in your telnet
windows has an annoying habit of disabling the system attribute from
the properties pane. So by adding this simple batch file to your send to
menu, you can easily get rid of the system attibute on files or folder
that shouldn't be marked as system
attrib -s %1
For some reason Windows 9x took away win3.x's attributes column in Explorer.
Personally, I like having the attributes visible. So here
is a registry hack that will add the option to show the attributes column
to explorer windows. Not sure what it does? This
preview shows what the registry file changes (note however, you will
still have to check that checkbox yourself to actually see the attributes
column). The vbs file just directly adds the column to your explorer windows,
which you can see in this preview. You will
probably need to reboot before the attributes column starts showing up.
