About the Topic
Windows has many “hidden” features — programs that will vastly expand your ability to troubleshoot and maintain your Windows systems. Most are already built-in, some are downloaded from Microsoft websites, and a few are provided by third parties. Among these are multiple tools for backup and recovery, debug, and efficient file and folder organization. We will also cover how to work with data from other users, where you're faced with security blocks.
This talk will describe hidden, or less well known programs Windows has to offer, where to find them, and how to use them. Ample time will be allowed for an interactive Q&A.
