Something I never knew about Windows...
« on: October 01, 2015, 12:30:43 PM »
You ever get frustrated when you need to retrieve an error code from a popup message box in Windows? Did you know you can press CTRL+C on any popup message box and copy the information to the clipboard?

It seems obvious NOW, but damn, I never knew that... just learned it today while retrieving my Windows product key (doing some reinstallation crap today)...

By the way, if you ever do need to find your Windows product key, here's a simple VBScript I found online. Download the .txt file and RENAME it to .VBS (the forum won't allow uploading anything executable). Then double click on it.

You can open it up and see it's harmless VBScript.

Wow, I did not know about the control-c being able to do that...but you're right it kind of obvious...logical even!

I'm saving that VBS script!  I think there something called Jellybean that does the same but it's a lot bigger and this one does is a lot simpler and does the trick.

Good thing I checked my email!

I just arrived in Vegas for Bike Fest...and was just checking my wifi connection from my room. 8)
