Mengembalikan ikon Show Desktop Windows

Filed under: Non-FOSS @ 8:19 pm

Sempat kesal juga waktu tanpa sengaja menghapus ikon Show Desktop, berikut adalah beberapa metode mengembalikan ikon Show Desktop tersebut. Oh iya, waktu itu kejadiannya di Windows XP.

1. Buka notepad atau teks editor lainnya, ketikkan:


dan simpan sebagai Show Desktop.scf yang disimpan di %Appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch.

2. Atau menyalin file Show Desktop.scf dari salah satu pengguna dengan login sebagai administrator ke profil yang kehilangan ikonnya di %Appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch.

3. Atau menjalankan perintah berikut di kotak dialog Run:

regsvr32 /n /i:U shell32.dll

Selesai deh, ikon Show Desktop pun kembali di Quick Launch.

LinkCommander, more than a bookmark manager

Filed under: Non-FOSS @ 8:32 am

I never thought before that it would be that hard to manage internet address (URL/Uniform Resource Locator) bookmarks. I must say I’m not that smart to manage bookmarks or to be precise I like to keep them in mind, especially when the URL has an unique name or just remembering the big keyword on the page and Google it later. But then, I realized that I can’t keep up like this forever besides the time that needed to find it again along the jungle called Internet.

One or two I can keep the bookmarks into the built-in bookmark manager that comes within the Internet browser. However, when the bookmarks come in plenty and too lazy to make it organized it will be another difficult for me to find the right links. Because of that I need something to get this thing done. Before I found Link Commander, sometime; especially only when I remember, I used to do import – export browsers’ bookmarks, but this doesn’t work that easy. One time I needed to reinstall or fresh-install the Windows immediately and I forget to import the browsers’ bookmarks, as you can predict, maybe, it will become another problem in the future. So I need to do this automatically into software that can manage the bookmarks into a file that I can save into another hard disk partition I have and that’s the time I got this Link Commander.

Microsoft Project viewer gratisan

Filed under: Non-FOSS @ 4:56 pm

Seorang teman baru saja memberi saya sebuah file Microsoft Project (.mpp), tadinya berfikiran untuk tidak membuka file itu. :D Selain karena tidak ada perangkat lunak Microsoft Project tersebut, saya juga malas untuk menginstall bilapun perangkat lunak tersebut tersedia. Namun apa daya ternyata file tersebut perlu dibuka. hiks. Main iseng buka google saja, dan sama isengnya ketika ketik “microsoft project viewer” ternyata dapat beberapa perangkat lunak yang dapat digunakan untuk membuka file .mpp tersebut. Namanya juga viewer, tentunya tidak dapat melakukan apa-apa, selain membukanya saja, tapi setidaknya cukuplah buat saya. :) Berikut adalah beberapa di antaranya.

Fixing Windows connection

Filed under: Non-FOSS @ 2:05 pm

Yesterday I found a computer that can’t connect to outside world though ping sucessful and no firewall activated.

I found this error message when triing to telnet via DOS prompt:

The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.

This is what I did to fix it:

1) Remove winsock and winsock2 from registry editor.


2) Restart PC.

3) Go to Network connections and Right click their connection. Choose Properties.

4). Click Install.

5). Click Protocol, then click Add.

6) Click Have Disk. Type C:\Windows\inf.

7). On the list available choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click OK.

That’s it. After that the computer can happily browse Internet again. :)
