Compress files on windows via Command Line

Hi,

There are time we want to perform things via CLI. Today I encountered to perform compression via CLI for my windows machine as it has problem performing the task via the UI. Here are the codes:

  • Compression

compact /c /s:”full path of folder” /i /Q

  • Uncompress

compact /u /s:”full path of folder” /i /Q

That’s it

Remote Desktop Manager

Are you like me who is managing a number of Windows Server? And might be maintaining multiple credential for each. I know its hard and you have the capability of saving the password. But remembering those server name or url is not that easy and I think this tool is right for you.

Microsoft has a manager for that and is called Remote Desktop manager. What it do is enable you to save your servers either per item or you may group them and also state a general setting and credential or even specify one for each.

Go ahead and download it at here.

Do you want to increase netbook screen resolution? The you can follow this simple steps but its only working on windows 7/Vista.

  1. Press WINDOW KEY + R this will open a Run Prompt
  2. On that Run Prompt type regedit
  3. Go find the registry for Display1_DownScalingSupported
  4. After find that change its value from 0 to 1
  5. FIN!

Just a note that the searching may take a little time. And remember that Increased resolution is just a software based emulation so expect that your screen will look somewhat funny after changing to a higher out of scope resolution.

Thanks,
