Came across a great application that gives you a multi-tabbed Explorer experience. First read about this from a LifeHacker post.
Note: I am running this on Windows 8 and noticed that if you have Explorer pinned, open it up and then create a new tab and minimize Explorer, when you activate it again, it adds a new tab to the end. I haven’t tested, but you can probably unpin Explorer to work around this or find the setting in the registry to disable open last folder. If I figure it out, I’ll update this post.
The application is called Clover 2 and you can download it from their website: http://ejie.me/
Here’s a screenshot:
A few Keyboard shortcuts:
CTRL-t = New tab
CTRL-w = Close current tab
CTRL-Tab = Navigate through tabs
CTRL-n = n being number of tab to access that tab so CTRL-1, CTRL-2 etc.
You can access the Windows 8 Power User Shortcut Menu by moving mouse to lower left corner of screen and right-clicking.
Here’s the menu:
Here’s a video demonstration of accessing this menu:

I received the following error this morning on my vCenter server after a brief reboot for a few Windows updates:
Hardware Monitoring on This Host is Not Responding
This error is generated when I click on the Hardware Status tab on each Host. I went to Plugins -> Manage Plugins disabled and re-enabled to no avail.
Looked at half the suggestions and came to one indicating to restart the VMware VirtualCenter Management Webservices.
I can’t play my Jazz! I found after installing Winamp in Windows 8 that it appears the Shoutcast browser control isn’t handling (what I think to be) a lightbox advertisement and it prevents you from playing the stream.
[stextbox id=”info” caption=”Update” collapsing=”false” collapsed=”false”]I have installed IE10 on a Windows 7 system to confirm if it was specific to IE10 and after installing IE10, Winamp indeed reproduces the “black screen” advertisement problem… The workaround, however, still works.[/stextbox]
I found a workaround after some trial an error.
- Search for whichever station you want in the Shoutcast control in Winamp
- When you find the stream you want, click the Star (to the right of the station) to Bookmark it.
- Go to the Bookmarks option on the left pane
- Now, just double-click your station you bookmarked to play it
Now, back to my Smooth Jazz.
Here are some screenshots of the main options for PC Settings in Windows 8 Preview.
