By default, Windows indexes selected file types on local hard disks as well as offline files. Use the Indexing Options in Control Panel to customize what information is included in the index. You can: o Modify the list of locations to include or exclude specific drives, folders, or other locations. o Modify the list of file types to include or exclude files from being indexed based on the file extension. o Index files based on filename, properties, or file contents. In File Explorer, use the Search settings in Folder Options to customize how searches are executed. Region and Language Settings Use the Region and Language options in Control Panel to manage language capabilities for the system. Region settings control how times, dates, numbers, and currency are formatted and displayed. For example, dates are displayed differently in different parts of the world and for different languages. For example: o Canada (French) displays dates in the format: yyyy-MM-dd (2002-11-02) o Canada (English) displays dates in the format: dd/MM/yyyy (02/11/2002)

o United States (English) displays dates in the format: M/d/yyyy (11/2/2002) o Australia (English) displays dates in the format: d/MM/yyyy (2/11/2002) The Change Location setting identifies the area of the world where the computer is connected. Some software services use the location to modify the content based on the location. An input language identifies the language, font, and keyboard layouts that can be used on the system. When you add an input language, the language toolbar is made available. Using the language toolbar, you can quickly change the current input language within an application. Performance Monitoring 0:00-0:17 Let's talk about system performance monitoring. The performance of the systems you are responsible for should be closely monitored for bottlenecks. A bottleneck occurs when a system component is unable to keep up with the demands placed on it. Components Causing Bottlenecks 0:18-0:25 Some system components that can cause performance bottlenecks are the processor, the hard disk drive, the system memory, and the network interface. Counters and Objects 0:26-0:41 Windows collects system performance information using counters and objects. A counter is a statistic, such as the amount of free memory or CPU utilization. An object, on the other hand, is a system component that is associated with a counter, such as the processor. Performance Monitoring Tools 0:42-0:51 Windows provides many different tools that you can use to monitor system performance, such as Task Manager, Resource Monitor, and Performance Monitor to track system statistics. CPU Utilization 0:52-1:58 Let's look at several key counters that you should monitor on a PC system. These counters are important because they can provide you with a good feel for the overall performance and health of the system.

    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.
