Hello IT Pro,

Welcome back to IT Pro Tuesday!

This week, we’re looking for your favorite tips to share with the community. Please let us know those useful tricks you've found that help you do things more easily so you get better at your job!

As always, we’re updating the full list on our website here. Enjoy.

But on with this week's tools...! Here are the most-interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops and phones this week. EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

Popular Repost: Tool

NTFS Permissions Auditor allows you to quickly analyze, verify and review any NTFS folder permissions. The free version offers deep, detailed audit results. Also available in a Pro version that adds customizable filtering, exporting to various formats and more. Suggested by sysit92.

A Cheatsheet

Python Cheatsheet serves as a basic reference for both beginner and advanced Python developers—because “anyone can forget how to make character classes for a regex, slice a list or do a for loop." This resource was suggested by kareko.

A Free Tool

efibootmgr is a Linux application for modifying the Intel Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) boot manager that can create/destroy, reshuffle and update boot entries. Interacts with the system's UEFI firmware to manipulate the EFI settings and manage boot entries that are capable of booting Linux (or other operating systems). Kindly recommended by Creshal.


A Tip

conan1989 shared a native shortcut that can serve as an alternative to PoshGUI: Show-Command


Show-Command -CommandName 'Test-NetConnection'


Another Free Tool

ScoutRealtime is a tool that lets you stream realtime server and process metrics to your browser. Shows disk, memory, network, CPU and process metrics with smooth-flowing charts for everything. Makes troubleshooting easier when you can see a few minutes of realtime data instead of individual numbers flashing on your terminal window. Suggested by CoronationStreetFan1.


P.S. Bonus Free Tools

tmux is a terminal multiplexer that enables multiple terminals to be created, accessed and controlled from a single screen. It can be detached from a screen while continuing to run in the background and then reattached later. Recommended by fmargaine.

MeshCommander is an open-source, JavaScript management console for Intel AMT computers. Allows you to manage Intel AMT computers from a browser, or download the source code/samples and build your own web-based tool. Thanks to smackywolf for the recomendation.


Have a fantastic week and as usual, let us know any comments.
