nuePanel – A Direct Dial Control Panel Alternative

November 29, 2016

Here is a tech toolbox (portable app) program called NuePanel that gives you direct dial access to more than 150 Windows applets and tools.

Be aware, because this is a new program, and contains many calls to system tools, it’s highly likely it’ll be flagged as malicious by some antivirus tools.

A Must Learn Windows 8 Tip: How To Get To The Quick Access Menu And To The Windows 8 Start Menu

January 9, 2013

Many of the articles I post are often as a result of real world experiences. Recently, through conversation with a co-worker about Windows 8, they were expressing their dismay about not knowing an easy way to access the more advanced power user or system management functions in Windows 8 such as Control Panel, File Explorer (formerly called Windows Explorer), Search, etc… Their dismay soon turned to WOW, after I showed them how to access what is called the Quick Access Menu in Windows 8.  I consider knowing this tip as a must learn tip to accessing these key computer functions; plus, a HOW TO tip to accessing Windows 8’s version of the Start Menu (see below).

Quick Access Menu

You actually have two options to accessing this menu:

  1. Hover your mouse pointer over the lower left corner of your screen and when the small (square) thumbnail screen appears, simply right mouse click and voila’ the Quick Access Menu will appear. This method of accessing the quick access menu is my favorite and can be accessed from the Windows 8 Start Screen and from the Window 8 desktop level, even if you have a program open. Learn to find and use this menu by practicing and before you know it, accessing the menu will become second nature.
  2. The second method, if you are into using keyboard shortcuts (which I am not) is simply hit the Winkey plus X (Windows Key + X).

What the Quick Access Menu gives you, is access to the following system management components:

Programs and Features
Power Options
Event Viewer
System
Device Manager
Disk Management
Computer Management
Command Prompt/Command Prompt (Admin)
Task Manager
Control Panel
File Explorer Search
Run
Desktop

Windows 8 Start Menu

Also, as an added bit of information. Many people think that the Start Menu is gone in Windows 8; whereas, it really is not. It just looks (a whole lot) different.  If you follow the steps I outlined above to access the Quick Access Menu, and click on Search, the convoluted Metro version of the Windows Start Menu will be launched. This definitely looks different than what we were used to in the previous Windows version; but, in essence, this is the Start Menu that lists, categorizes and will launch any of the programs on your computer.

Unlock The Secret Options In Windows 7

August 23, 2012

Most techs have heard of the Windows 7 GodMode where there is a trick to creating a folder and giving it a special name [see here] to enable GodMode. GodMode is a hidden control panel that contains everything, in one place, about Windows 7 in terms of options, settings, customizations, etc…

Getting to GodMode can be a tricky venture for some; however, I came across a nice utility that gives you the ability to enable or disable God Mode in one mouse click. It is called the Windows 7 GodMode ToolSimply download the tool to a folder, unzip the tool and double click on the Windows 7 GodMode Tool file to launch the utility. When the interface loads simply click on “Enable GodMode”.

After you click on “Enable GodMode” the tool button will change to “Disable GodMode” and an icon will appear on your desktop that is labelled “GodMode”.  Click on the “GodMode” icon to launch into the GodMode settings.

To disable GodMode, simply run the Windows 7 GodMode Tool again and click on “Disable GodMode”.
