Task Manager in Windows 8 has been overhauled. It now includes a lot of excellent new features. In the video below, Tim Bush walks us through some of the new features and enhancements. He also shows us some of the hidden tips and tricks you might have missed. If you enjoyed Tim’s video, you might like to read a previous article of mine entitled: Windows 8 Tips Part 18 – Customize Task Manager.
Next, Scott Hanselman talks about your images and the copyright you should have, but so many ignore. This is another excellent article and well worth the read. Then Iris Classon asks another great question. This time regarding the Visual Studio 2012 upper case menu. If you want to read my take on it, see this article: Visual Studio 2012 Tips Part 2 – Turn off Menu Upper Casing.
Lastly, Sarah Lamb is back and talking about something developers don’t usually do very well…. that is marketing.
It’s almost Friday, we just need to get through Thursday. Have a great day! Here is The Daily Six Pack!
