Also, are you the type of person who accidentally PRESS THE CAPS LOCK key every now and then; WHEN IT REALLY SHOULD BE THE SHIFT KEY – and suddenly you can delete the last few words and type again? There are tools to assign the function of any key differently under Windows, so that, for example, the shift key works like the caps lock key.
One of them comes from Microsoft itself and is in the free PowerToys that we have in the special issue c’t Windows tools that help to introduce. There you will also find useful information about handling sensitive work data on the home office PC, curbing data consumption when you are online with Windows via a cellular connection and about batch renamers – programs with which, for example, many image files can be renamed in one go.
In addition, it is about two of the most popular c’t tools: the backup and recovery tool c’t WIMage and the c’t emergency Windows, which has proven itself for years as an aid for hardware problems, virus attacks and failed updates.
The c’t Windows special issue is available on both Paper as well as in digital form. Who can buy the print edition for 14.90 euros up to and including June 29, 2021 ordered in the heise shop, does not pay shipping costs. In addition, the printed booklet is now also available in newsagents.
