Home office

We are a small team, but in a holding with more than 400 people. From Monday we were asked to work from home. And attach a photo of the temporary office.
For me, there is not much difference. Even on ordinary days, sitting at a distance of 10 meters, it is often easier to send a message to the chat. The only difficulty is that some of the files are located on a server that is accessible only from the office. And upon a request to make remote access, the technology department replies: “It is impossible. Because VIRUSES.”
For me, this experiment is even more interesting. There is a chance to try Windows for full work and compare one-on-one with the Mac OS.

Google daemon check

Google don’t tell you but it installs process to check for updates every 5 hours. Which is annoying and can occupy 100% of CPU. You can check the status on mac in terminal with this line:

defaults read com.google.Keystone.Agent

And you can change this interval to 4 days like this (24*4*3600=345600):

defaults write com.google.Keystone.Agent checkInterval 345600

Making Mac keyboard work on Windows 10

After more than 10 years on Mac computers I’m switching to Windows. And the most challenging thing to my surprise was not the lack of some apps but default windows keyboard layout.

It took me a while to figure out how to make my Magic Keyboard to work on windows the same way as on mac.

Fist you need to swap WIN key with CTRL in app called SharpKeys:

Then you need to install an app AutoHotkey.
Create a plain text document and call it whatever you want but with extension .ahk
Place it in your user startup folder (replace _username_ with your name):
C:\Users\_username_\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Inside this ahk file write this:

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
	
LControl & Tab:: 
    AltTabMenu := true
    If GetKeyState("Shift","P")
        Send {Alt Down}{Shift Down}{Tab}
    else
        Send {Alt Down}{Tab}
return

#If (AltTabMenu)

    ~*LControl Up::
        Send {Shift Up}{Alt Up}
        AltTabMenu := false 
    return

#If
