    yeah like double clicking the title bar of any app / window normally maximizes / reduces the window size ( just like the double square button normally located between the minimize and close button at the top right )

    Thanks for the pictures - a wonderful example of wasting time at work!! :-)

    As for the password changes, we force a change at logon about a week into each term. Also, there's a little link by the logoff button which allows them to do it if they wish at another time.

    Win + Shift + M ??

    incidentally, how do your users change password? Or do you force them to do it?
    Do UK IBM keyboards have New Line on the return key?

    As for all the letters in other languages on the keys, if I wasn't a touch typist my eyes would murder me with all of those sooo confusing!

    You should try using a MacBookPro, it's like a flippin' xmas tree when it gets to dusk and those keys light up! :P

    once you pop, you can't stop. you gotta try it johnny boy, it's even got a 3 finger salute of it's own if you miss windows that much, but stuff rarely goes wrong!

    did anyone notice the strategically placed piece of SODIMM and a DLP chip from Texas Instruments (you gotta love BETT for useless stuff!)? It makes me feel like i'm still an IT technician

    They can use Ctrl+Alt+Del if they want, it isn't disabled, but generally they just wait for the forced change, or use a different link on their Start Menu to change passwords.

    Is termly all that often for password changes? I've worked in businesses which forced monthly changes, so termly doesn't seem so bad, it is only 3 passwords a year (plus, many of them probably just have incrementing numbers at the end!).

    I've got a Macbook its a great paper weight. Its currently acting as a bridge over my waste bin in my room so I can put my cup of tea and nibbles somewhere not on my desk

    It has Snow Leopard on it and yes it works and is fine, but I just don't see any benifit of it over Windows or Microsoft stuff I'm afraid, infact its got more Microsoft software and tools on it than Apple!

    Anyway were moving to the ever common Apple VS Microsoft lol

    My users are forced to change passwords monthly by GPO.

    The "un-minimise all" doesn't work with Windows 7 but does work on XP - not sure about Vista (and not going to install it to find out!)

    Maybe instead of adding to the wiki, we could just look at the MS web site :-)
