all right Windows operating system, gooey tools or graphical user interface tools.
00:11
These are different than the command line tools because he's all run with graphical interfaces,
00:19
so we'll go back.
00:22
Look at some of the
00:25
more fundamental tools
00:27
little them facing here.
00:38
Who could device manager
00:42
to get to device manager,
00:45
go to computer right click
00:48
and hit manage
01:00
inside Manager. You can see System tools Task Hegeler.
01:04
Some other item fool can hear also, but he was device manager
01:11
and device Man's room literally is exactly what it says. It's all the devices connected
01:18
to your hardware,
01:19
so I want to see what kind of batteries I've got.
01:27
If I want to see
01:32
what kind of describe I have,
01:36
if I want to see my display adapters
01:42
seedy Ron's.
01:46
In addition to just viewing them,
01:49
I can also right click on the device
01:53
and his properties.
01:57
Excuse me. I'll get down for the actual device,
02:00
right click and their properties,
02:07
and
02:08
I can find out
02:09
what kind of device it is. Two d. U. Eight Alfa
02:14
Force Year Hotel
02:19
for Region
02:22
region has to do with playing
02:23
DVDs that have rights management on them.
02:27
Whether there are you a U S or European or what part of the world you're in.
02:34
You can change the region a limited number of times.
02:44
It is just to keep people from
02:46
buying DVDs from all over the world are buying Pirated DVDs from other countries
02:52
and converting their machine back and forth to read different
02:55
Baby D's.
02:58
Well, look here the driver
03:00
and driver details,
03:02
and if we think that we need to upgrade update the driver would like to try.
03:07
Then you can hit the update driver button.
03:13
You can tell it to look on your local computer. You can tell it to search the Internet.
03:17
And if there's a updated driver,
03:20
that's one way to get the driver in, especially for a device that would be showing a problem
03:25
if a device was showing a problem.
03:29
And I don't believe
03:30
there are any problems here.
03:32
But if something is showing a problem, it would have either a red X or yellow exclamation mark
03:42
next to that problem area.
03:47
So while we're here,
03:50
you know, so lookit system tools
03:53
and you can see that's this list right here. Task edge ular
04:02
on task Scheduler.
04:15
All of these items were any other item you want to
04:17
can be scheduled to run.
04:21
And if I look in the last 30 days,
04:36
defrag could be runs on a schedule.
04:40
Backups come around on schedule, and this is where you'd set them up
04:53
right here by create task
05:01
and you can set the trigger.
05:04
He's at the action
05:10
if you don't want it to.
05:12
To run a task while you're in the middle of using the computer, you can tell it to delay the task
05:16
until the computer's been idle for a certain number of minutes or hours.
05:27
Event fewer
05:36
for critical events.
05:42
We see at this 0.41 critical events have occurred
05:50
spacings over tight on this view,
05:56
but we can see that twice. In the last couple of months, I run the battery down almost to zero, and the system has shut himself down
06:03
because the colonel noticed
06:06
power was almost out
06:15
when those logs
06:20
shared folders.
06:27
Notice we do have shares
06:30
and a share is
06:32
the Microsoft method for allowing of remote computer to connect to something on this computer.
06:41
The types of shares that we run here are called
06:45
S and B shares, or SIFS shares. SIFs can stand for common engine and file system
06:50
or S and be your server message box. Essentially their window shares. Lennox has a different way of sharing files. These Air Window shares. I don't
07:01
have anything set up,
07:05
but these three shares with the dollar signs are automatically set up.
07:12
They're set up there, set up a system, shares their administrative shares,
07:16
and they always exist. And if you're an administrator, you can
07:21
reach the shares.
07:25
The only way to get rid of them is to delete them.
07:30
They're hidden. The known is hidden shares, which means they don't normally show up if someone tries to browse to you.
07:36
But they do exist. If you explicitly type them
07:41
sessions for who else would be on the machine?
07:44
Nobody else is connected,
07:46
and no remote person has opened files.
07:53
Local users and groups.
07:57
How many user accounts we have on this machine?
08:07
Administrator Guest and
08:09
Joe.
08:09
If you look these two are building accounts.
08:15
It's only Joe
08:16
and updates User
08:22
for in video for the graphics card are the only created accounts. If you want to create a new account,
08:30
right click and just create new user.
08:35
If you give them a password
08:37
and it's temporary password. Then you leave this set. They log in once and when the
08:43
when the new user logs in, they mandatory only have to create a new password at the time they go in.
08:52
Alternatively, you can hit this where you give them a password and they can't change. It
09:03
has for groups
09:07
groups where people get permissions from if you want to be members of the administrators group.
09:16
How that works
09:20
if you want to be a member when I say you don't want to get somebody for administrator privileges, but you want them to be able to back up files
09:28
and you put them in the backup group
09:31
if you want them only to be able to act as a guest
09:35
and get on to guess resource is you conjoining to the guest group
09:39
and so on.
09:46
Performance monitor
10:09
disc management like Performance Monitor. I couldn't show you anything. Disc management
10:18
appear at the top.
10:22
You can see we have three volumes,
10:28
um, the C drive
10:30
and the recovery partition of both an anti F s.
10:33
And then this is an O. AM or original equipment manufacturer partition,
10:39
and that's so that we can support
10:41
bit locker
10:43
down here.
10:46
This one disc disc zero or the one hard drive that I have
10:50
has all three
10:54
partitions on it.
10:58
And if we click on them,
11:01
the recovery partition
11:03
is healthy. Active in a primary partition.
11:07
See, Dr is healthy.
11:09
The boot partition has got the page file. The crash jump is a primary partition.
11:18
If I were to stick in
11:20
a USB drive, let's see what happens.
11:45
We have a computer mansion, go back in
12:01
and now you see
12:03
USB drive is there. The USB drives running fat 32.
12:13
And if I don't want this to be Dr H,
12:16
I can come right here. Say, change, Dr Letter
12:20
change
12:24
and I can make it any dry weather I want. That's not already in use.
12:30
And some people will do this because they want to make their d. Dr.
12:33
They put it in second hard drive or a second volume. They've got sea, and they've got two hard drives you got to see. And it's something else,
12:41
and they want to put the two hard drives and actually each other. So if their DVD drive is currently D, they may move it T E
12:50
and then let their hard drives B, C and D
12:54
that works okay with one big caveat.
12:56
If you have applications that were installed
13:00
from the D Drive as the DVD
13:03
later on, if you tried to update it
13:07
or if it goes out to request, is going to request something from that D drive again, even though you've changed the dive lighter
13:15
so you can do these things. But it's best to do them is early in the installation process as possible. Make you drive letter decisions and let everything stay and then do all your application installs. They're going to be done through a DVD,
13:33
so I'm not gonna change anything, but I wonder if you see
13:35
that's where the change can occur.
