Microsoft Lync Server 2013 :
Communicating with Internet Email : Working with Identities
As a convenience, Outlook Express leaves you logged on to your identity when you exit the program in the usual way (that is, by selecting File, Exit or by pressing Alt+F4). This means Outlook Express uses your identity the next time you start the program.
Communicating with Internet Email : Finding a Message - Simple Searches, Advanced Searches, Finding a Person
If you want to search specific message fields, if you want to specify different criteria for each field, or if you want to include specialized criteria such as the message date or whether a message has attachments, you need to use the full-fledged Find Message feature.
Communicating with Internet Email : Filtering Incoming Messages - Blocking Senders, Creating a Mail Rule
For the latter, note that Outlook Express also comes with a Blocked Senders list. If you put an address on this list, Outlook Express watches for messages from that address and deletes them automatically.
Communicating with Internet Email : Sending Messages (part 2) - Setting Send Options, Maintaining Outlook Express
If you don’t leave Outlook Express open all day, when you need to send a message it can seem like a lot of work to start the program, compose the new message, send it, and then close Outlook Express.
Communicating with Internet Email : Sending Messages (part 1) - Taking Control of Your Messages, Creating a Signature, Creating an Email Shortcut for a Recipient
If you don’t leave Outlook Express open all day, when you need to send a message it can seem like a lot of work to start the program, compose the new message, send it, and then close Outlook Express.
Communicating with Internet Email : Handling Incoming Messages
Each new message that arrives is stored in the Inbox folder’s message list and appears in a bold font. To view the contents of any message, select it in the message list and Outlook Express then displays the message text in the preview pane.
Communicating with Internet Email : Setting Up Mail Accounts
Although the basic account settings that you specify using the Internet Connection Wizard suffice in most cases, many accounts require a more advanced setup. For example, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) might require a different SMTP port or you might prefer to leave your messages on the server.
Customizing the Windows XP Interface : Customizing the Taskbar for Easier Program and Document Launching (part 2)
Another way to prevent grouping is to give the taskbar more room to display buttons. The easiest way to do that is to resize the taskbar by dragging its top edge up until the taskbar expands. If this doesn’t work, the taskbar is probably locked. Unlock it by right-clicking the taskbar and then clicking Lock the Taskbar.
Customizing the Windows XP Interface : Customizing the Taskbar for Easier Program and Document Launching (part 1)
In addition to the predefined taskbar toolbars, you can also create new toolbars that display the contents of any folder on your system. For example, if you have a folder of programs or documents that you launch regularly, you can get one-click access to those items by displaying that folder as a toolbar.
Customizing the Start Menu for Easier Program and Document Launching (part 2) - Setting Program Access and Defaults
You can modify Windows XP (with Service Pack 1 or later installed) to use other programs as the default for activities such as web browsing, email, instant messaging, and media playing. This enables you to have your favorite programs available in more convenient locations and to have those programs launch automatically in certain situations
Customizing the Start Menu for Easier Program and Document Launching (part 1) - Getting More Favorite Programs on the Start Menu
The list of favorite programs is one of the best features in Windows XP because it ensures that the programs you use most often are always just a couple of mouse clicks away
Handling Input on Windows Phone 7 : Location
The location sensor is a very useful capability, given that mobile devices are generally on the go with their owner. Location provides context for applications that can make life easier on the user by automatically adjusting for the user's current location.
Understanding Application Compatibility : Scripting Compatibility Layers, Using Compatibility Administrator
To create a usable compatibility fix for an application—one that you can use on your own computer or distribute to other computers—you use Compatibility Administrator.
Understanding Application Compatibility : Determining Whether a Program Is Compatible with Windows XP, Understanding Compatibility Mode
Most new software programs are certified as Windows XP–compatible, meaning that they can be installed and run without mishap on any Windows XP system. But what about older programs that were coded before Windows XP was released? They can be a bit more problematic.
Remote Collaboration with Microsoft NetMeeting : Using the Whiteboard & Sharing Programs
Whiteboards have become a standard feature in boardrooms and conference rooms. Presenters, facilitators, and meeting leaders use them to record action points, highlight important information, and draw charts and diagrams.
Remote Collaboration with Microsoft NetMeeting : Exchanging Files in NetMeeting & Using the Chat Feature
If you don’t have a microphone, NetMeeting’s audio features won’t do you much good. That doesn’t mean you can’t communicate with remote callers, however. For simple text communications in real time, NetMeeting’s Chat feature is perfect.
Remote Collaboration with Microsoft NetMeeting : Placing NetMeeting Calls
If you want to give other people a SpeedDial shortcut that connects to you, create a new SpeedDial entry that uses your computer name, IP address, or directory entry. Activate the Save on the Desktop option and click OK.
Remote Collaboration with Microsoft NetMeeting : Configuring NetMeeting
If you plan on using NetMeeting regularly, consider setting up a shortcut for it on your Start menu (for instance, in the Communications folder). The Conf.exe file is located in the %SystemDrive%\Program Files\NetMeeting folder.
Sending and Receiving Faxes (part 3) - Receiving Faxes
If you find the Fax service’s sounds (such as the ringing associated with an incoming call) annoying, you can disable them. In the Fax Console, select Tools, Fax Printer Configuration and then display the Tracking tab. Click Configure Sound Settings and then deactivate the check boxes for each sound you want to silence.
Sending and Receiving Faxes (part 2) - Sending a Fax
You can use Windows XP’s Photo Printing Wizard to fax a scanned image or photo. After you scan the picture, right-click the resulting file and then click Print to start the Photo Printing Wizard.
Sending and Receiving Faxes (part 1) - Installing, Configuring the Fax Service
Instead of the Select Device for Sending or Receiving Faxes dialog box, you might see the final wizard dialog box instead. When you click Finish, a Windows Security Alert dialog box appears letting you know that Windows XP is blocking the Fax Console program.
Using HyperTerminal for Modem-to-Modem Connections : Connecting to a Remote System & Performing File Transfers
If the remote system has a file you want to download, HyperTerminal makes it easy. After you’ve told the online service the name of the file you want to receive or send and the protocol to use, the service says something like Ready to send/receive file. Please initiate file transfer.
Using HyperTerminal for Modem-to-Modem Connections : Creating a New HyperTerminal Connection
HyperTerminal integrates seamlessly with Windows XP’s communications subsystem, and it offers several terminal emulation options, as well as support for most popular file transfer protocols, such as 1K Xmodem and Zmodem.
Getting Your Modem to Dial Voice Calls for You : Setting Phone Dialer’s Options & Quick Connections with Speed Dial
Phone Dialer is certainly handy, but it becomes downright useful when you take advantage of the Speed Dial feature. If you have numbers that you call frequently, add the numbers to the Speed Dial list to make them accessible with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Configuring Windows Firewall to Allow Incoming Internet Calls & Placing an Internet or Network Call
By default, Windows Firewall blocks data coming through port 1720. Unfortunately, this is the port that Phone Dialer uses to establish phone calls over the Internet or your network.
Getting Your Modem to Dial Voice Calls for You : Placing a Voice Call
The Phone Dialer uses the dialing properties you established earlier for your modem. If you want to change the properties (to use a calling card, for example), you can access the Phone and Modem Options dialog box from within Phone Dialer.
Migrating Your Applications from XP to Windows 7
A significant upgrade like this is a good time to also deal with application upgrades and cross-grades. As you may recall, we suggested you plan out your upgrades and cross-grades so you could be sure of what you were doing and what needed to be done at each step in the process.
Migrating from XP to Windows 7 : Installing Windows 7
A clean installation also offers you an opportunity to clean up space on your hard disk, storing the programs you decide to reinstall in a more efficient manner and perhaps compacting some of your data files.
Migrating Applications from Windows XP to Windows 7
If you’re dealing with only a single computer, it is a simple process. If, however, you’re dealing with multiple computers, you should probably save it because you will need to install and run the upgrade advisor on each of the computers.
Migrating from XP to Windows 7 : Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
If you’re dealing with only a single computer, it is a simple process. If, however, you’re dealing with multiple computers, you should probably save it because you will need to install and run the upgrade advisor on each of the computers.
Surfing the Web Securely (part 3) - Blocking Pop-Up Windows
Fortunately, Microsoft has given us a way to stop pop-ups before they start. In the Windows XP Service Pack 2, Internet Explorer comes with a new feature called the Pop-up Blocker that looks for pop-ups and prevents them from opening.
Surfing the Web Securely (part 2) - Enhancing Online Privacy by Managing Cookies
The term cookie is based on the old programming term magic cookie, which is defined as something passed between routines or programs that enables the receiver to perform some operation.
Surfing the Web Securely (part 1) - Adding and Removing Zone Sites
The Security Settings dialog box provides you with a long list of possible security issues, and your job is to specify how you want Internet Explorer to handle each issue.
Keeping Intruders Out of Your System : Turning Off File and Printer Sharing, the Messenger Service
If you access the Net using a broadband—cable modem or DSL—service, chances are you have an always-on connection, which means there’s a much greater chance that a malicious hacker could find your computer and have his way with it.
Working with Email Safely and Securely : Sending a Secure Message & Receiving a Secure Message
If you don’t have a digitally signed message for the person you want to work with, you have to visit a certifying authority’s website and find the person’s digital ID.
Working with Email Safely and Securely : Maintaining Your Privacy While Reading Email & Setting Up an Email Account with a Digital ID
To make a backup copy of your digital ID, open Internet Explorer and select Tools, Internet Options. Display the Content tab and click Certificates to see a list of your installed certificates (be sure to use the Personal tab).
Troubleshooting Network Problems : Working with Email Safely and Securely - Protecting Yourself Against Email Viruses & Filtering Out Spam
There are a host of commercial spam-killers on the market, but with a bit of work you should be able to eliminate most spam by using nothing more than the built-in tools available in Outlook Express.
Troubleshooting Network Problems : Troubleshooting General Network Nuisances
The name you’ve given to your computer is the same as that of another computer on the network. Windows XP normally prevents you from changing your computer’s name to a name that already exists on the network.
Troubleshooting Network Problems : Working with Network Diagnostics
If you suspect you’re having network trouble—such as computers on the network not being able to see each other or file transfers or other network activity behaving erratically—but you aren’t sure, one easy way to find out is to run the Network Diagnostics utility.
Troubleshooting Network Problems : Repairing a Network Connection
For other network connection data, click the Details button to see information such as the addresses of the DHCP server, DNS servers, and WINS server. You can also click Repair to initiate the Windows XP network connection repair utility.
Visual Basic 2008 : Using FTP in the Service (part 2)
This new code will open the configuration file and then navigate to the starting parent node of FTPWorkerOptions. When we have a pointer to that node, the code will read through each sibling and populate the appropriate FTP class property with the value read from the configuration file.
Visual Basic 2008 : Using FTP in the Service (part 1)
Our FTP class is very simple. It allows for uploading and downloading files, but it lacks more in-depth features, such as listing directories locally or remotely.
Windows Presentation Foundation in .NET 4 : Introducing WPF - The Architecture of WPF
WPF uses a multilayered architecture. At the top, your application interacts with a high-level set of services that are completely written in managed C# code.
Windows Presentation Foundation in .NET 4 : Introducing WPF - Resolution Independence
Traditional Windows applications are bound by certain assumptions about resolution. Developers usually assume a standard monitor resolution (such as 1024 by 768 pixels), design their windows with that in mind, and try to ensure reasonable resizing behavior for smaller and larger dimensions.
Windows Presentation Foundation in .NET 4 : Introducing WPF - The Evolution of Windows Graphics & A Higher-Level API
The Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a graphical display system for Windows. WPF is designed for .NET, influenced by modern display technologies such as HTML and Flash, and hardware-accelerated.
Silverlight and ASP.NET : WCF Services and Silverlight
Silverlight presents an entirely new programming model for Web sites. ASP.NET programming traditionally involves managing a collection of ASP.NET controls that emit HTML to the client. ASP.NET has a whole infrastructure for managing session state and view state (necessary for HTML over HTTP).
Silverlight and ASP.NET : Integrating with HTML & Animations
One of the most compelling features of Silverlight is how it gives you the ability to incorporate animations in the content space. Silverlight provides a uniform and consistent means of animating UI elements within a visual tree.
Silverlight and ASP.NET : Silverlight and Layout
You can use formulas for depreciation, such as SLN (Straight-Line Depreciation) and SYD, or formulas for interest and investments, such as FV, EFFECT or IPMT. Many of the investment functions use the following arguments: rate, nominal_rate, per, nper, pv, fv, pmt, and type.
Silverlight and ASP.NET : Adding Silverlight Content to a Web Page
The Silverlight control works much the same way as all of the other server-side controls work. They end up in the page's control tree and send HTML to the browser. The Silverlight control emits the HTML necessary to allow the client browser to load Silverlight and host the content in it.
