Blogs of the past: Cool Windows 2000 utilities: IExpress

iExpressI’m back with another blog from the past! This one I would place sometime in 2001 or earlier with an update on May 13, 2004. One of the most amazing facts about this post is that IExpress is still in Windows! This small utility is still included in Windows 7 and I would even expect it to be around when Windows 8 ships. This was one of my more popular posts back in the early 2000’s. As always, I will add my own annotations to the blog by way of red text. Enjoy!

If you’re like me, one of the first things you do when you get a new application or Operating System installed, you go looking for the small utilities that have been included. I feel your pain if you spend numerous hours scanning the \NTRESKIT directory looking for utility heaven. Your hard drive features a C:\UTILS directory and you obsessively maintain each of the utilities for future use. Among these cool utilities were the HWINFO utility in Windows 95 and the MSCONFIG utility in Windows 98. Included in Windows 2000 and Windows XP is a small utility called IExpress. This utility is generally hidden from users and is actually included in every single distribution of Windows 2000 Professional and Server. I’ll tell you what IExpress is, and how you can use this cool utility. Truth be told, I’m still something of a tool-geek :)

There are no more results.
