    Manage Windows faster with Run commands




    BEST PRACTICES

    Manage Windows faster with Run commands

    By Michael Lasky

    It's common wisdom that Windows offers numerous ways to complete the same task.
    One underutilized resource is the Run command and its associated Command window. Here are some of the better Windows-management shortcuts you can run.

    How can the users of regular win8.1 do this? I see this hint over and over online and each time, no mention is made of the lack of gpedit in the regular win8.1.
    Doesn't anyone do their research and check these hints before publishing them?

    For users of the much more common Win 8.1, there is a registry hack that will do the same thing as the gpedit checkbox that we don't have. Google "disable lock screen in windows 8.1" and you will find it.
