Hello IT Pro, 

We’re back with this week’s tips and tools. As normal, unless we state otherwise, we are not affiliated with any of the products reviewed.

 

TechNet

TechNet by Microsoft contains a comprehensive library of information that IT professionals might need. The library contains technical documentation relating to Microsoft products, technology and tools. 

Explainshell.com

If you’re looking for a reference for shell commands, explainshell.com is one of the best out there. It lists different shell commands and switches and explains them fully. Think of it as your shell command cheat sheet. 

TreeSize Free

One of our readers suggested that we check out this tool. We had to include it here because it’s pretty handy. TreeSize Free will help you work out what’s happened to your disk space. Once you know, you can more easily clean out files that are taking up too much room. 

Top Tip

Adjust the speed of your mouse pointer to the maximum. This may only shave milliseconds off each stroke of the mouse, but those add up to a lot of time saved overall. Be warned, it does take a little while to get used to, but once you do, you’ll love it. 

IT Pro Podcast

Sysadmin Today is a podcast about the author’s experience as a system administrator. It’s highly entertaining and useful. In the interest of full disclosure, the host is one of our business partners and we’ve been featured in the podcast.

That’s another week of IT Pro Tuesday done and dusted. I’ll see you at the same time and same place next week... and of course, any comments are welcome.

Thanks,
