In this post I will introduce you to a great little tool from Microsoft that can help you getting started creating WMI scripts in C#, Visual Basic or VB script. The tool is free and can help you creating small scripts that can collect data from WMI or execute commands on local or remote computers. Scripting against the WMI namespace you can do a lot of cool stuff like collect information about Operating system or Hardware information. It is also possible to execute commands like reboot or other admin tasks that you might find useful.
Internet Explorer 10 has just recently been released for Windows 7. Even if you prefer another browser like Firefox or Google Chrome you might want to know what have changes in the new version of Internet Explorer 10. In my opinion Microsoft has been falling a lot behind in the browser war. One of the reasons is that there is years between the browser upgrades from Microsoft. That been said Microsoft Internet Explorer is still the most used browser worldwide and that is why you should not ignore this new version even that you don’t want to use it yourself. If you have your own blog or website you need to make sure that your site is looking good in IE10. If you don’t want to upgrade your own IE yet you can test your blog or website using this free browser tester.
Word 2010 has a lot of great features. For some of you guys out there that have been using earlier versions of Word, you might not love the new Ribbon Interface first time introduced in Word 2007. If that is the case you might find the following shortcuts for Word 2010 very useful. Even if you love the new Ribbon Interface you might found these shortcuts useful.
I love when I can simplify tasks I use a lot with a few easy shortcut combinations. The problem is that if I don’t use the combination often enough I can’t remember them when I need them. However here is some of my favorite shortcut combination for Microsoft Word 2010.

If you sometime has a PDF document you would like to edit or maybe add your own notes to, this post is something that will interest you for sure. You can of cause buy a very expensive program from Adobe or you can use this free online tool that I will tell you about below.
PDF to Word Converter (Free Online service)
On www.pdftowordconverter.org you can convert your PDF files to Word format for free. All you have to do is to upload your PDF file and enter in your e-mail address. Shortly after you have uploaded the file you will receive an e-mail with a link where you can download your file in Word format (.doc). I have tested the free service myself and it is indeed very simple. I printed a standard Windows test page with my BioPDF printer and uploaded it to the online service. Shortly after I got an e-mail with a link to the document converted to .doc Word format. I opened the document with Microsoft Word and was able to edit the text like in any other Word document. The file will be stored online for 24 hours before it will be deleted again.
If you need to convert multiple documents you might want to buy Able2Extract instead of using the online version. You can download a Free 7 days Trial version of Able2Extract to check it out. Able2Extract is available for Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Able2Extract is also able to convert PDF to Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher and a couple of other formats. With Able2Extract you can also configure Batch conversion of multiple files if you need to convert a big amount of files. Able2Extract is created by Investintech.com that also makes other products used to convert files. A single user license is available for only $99.95. Before you download the 7 days trial version, let me just inform you that it is limited to convert only 3 pages at the time. If you like the Trial version you can activate it to a full version if you end up buying the program.
