For example, with this application, we need to specify the IP address of the database server that we're going to connect to as an argument, and the IP address of that server is 10.0.0.3. So the command we'll actually run is dbupdate.exe, space, 10.0.0.3. That tells this utility which database server it needs to contact and then synchronize with. Click Next. Here's the summary of what's going to happen. The name is Database Update. Here's what it does. Here's when it's going to occur, every day at 11:00 pm, and the action is that it's going to start a program, dbupdate.exe, and the name of the server we're going to connect to is 10.0.0.3. Click Finish and the task has been added. Summary 5:08-5:12 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about how to use Task Scheduler to cause an application to run on a regular schedule. Windows Store Applications 0:00-0:34 In this lesson, we're going to discuss apps from the Windows store. Apps from the Windows store were introduced in Windows 8 and are available in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. If you're used to traditional Windows desktop applications you'll probably find that the apps from the Windows store are quite different. The Windows store's apps function in a manner similar to the apps you may install on a mobile device. In fact, apps from the Windows store can be installed on mobile Windows devices such as the Surface tablet as well as Windows desktop and notebook systems. Windows Store Application Interface 0:35-0:50 The interface used by most of the apps in the Windows store is sparse compared to that used by desktop applications. There's very little clutter. There's no menu bar or status bar. The title bar only contains buttons to minimize, maximize, or close the app. Windows Store 0:51-1:04 These apps are only available through the Windows store. In order to download and install a Windows app, you launch the Windows store itself and then browse and purchase various appsthrough the Windows store. Some apps are free but others cost money. Uninstall an App 1:05-1:24 If you have an app currently installed that you no longer want you can uninstall it. All you have to do is go to the Start screen on Windows 8 or the Start menu on Windows 10 and locate the tile for the app that you no longer want. Then, right-click on the tile and select Uninstall. The app will be removed. Sideload an App 1:25-2:19 Most of the Windows apps that you'll use will come from the Windows store. They're downloaded and installed using the Windows store however, you're not limited to just these apps. If you need to you can also develop customs Windows apps for use within your organization and install them through a process called sideloading. Sideloaded apps do not come from the Windows store and they're not certified by Microsoft. These apps can only be installed on a Windows device that has sideloading enabled and the way you do this varies. For example, if you're running Windows 8.1 Enterprise then you can enable sideloading by joining the system to a domain and enabling the Allow All Trusted Apps To Install group policy setting.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
