Dos command to find active wireless connection signal strength (assuming there is a wireless connection)

If going to use this in a batch file then %A becomes %%A

 

FOR /F "tokens=2 delims=: " %A IN ('netsh wlan show interfaces ^| FIND "Signal"') DO SET SIGNAL_STRENGTH=%A

 

ECHO %SIGNAL_STRENGTH%

 

The basic command here, to see the full netsh wlan report is

netsh wlan show interfaces

Win10 Home to original Pro

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

Used an image of a Win10 Home laptop to copy programs/settings to a desktop pc.

Laptop had Home, desktop PC had license for Pro.

Needed to change desktop PC to Pro so people could Remote Desktop into it.

Variation from http://www.zdnet.com/article/going-pro-how-to-upgrade-windows-10-home-without-hassles/

Change Product Key from the System Control Panel (there’s an identical button on the Activation page in Settings).

Enter the default Windows 10 Pro product key:

VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T

That signals to Windows that we want  to upgrade from Home to Pro,

Click Start Upgrade, and after a few minutes, the system restarts. When connected to the Internet, the Windows activation process checks the hardware against Microsoft’s servers. Because this hardware was already recorded with a digital entitlement to Windows 10 Pro, it was activated immediately, without the need to enter a product key.

Guilt, shame, blame, remorse — redemption

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Guilt — a parental image expressing anger, pointing finger

Shame — fearful response to  parental figure

Blame — expressing anger toward other culpable people or circumstances

Remorse — sadly accepting responsibility, forgiving others

Redemption — recognizing everyone is fallible and accepting forgiveness
