This how-to shows how to create a report in System Center Configuration Manager with computer information like serial number etc.
I’m positive that working with the keyboard is way faster then working in combination with the mouse. But you must know the shortcuts-keystrokes-etc etc So here is the list I’m using. The list is updated on a regular basis.

CTRL+C = Copy
CTRL+V = Paste
CTRL+X = Cut
CTRL+Z = Undo
CTRL+Insert = Copy (This one I use very often, learned it in the old days )
Shift+Insert = Paste
Shift+Delete = Permanently Delete
The Windows Key
Windows+R = Run
Windows+P = Projector/monitor/Dual/Etc (Keep Windows key pressed)
Windows+E = Explorer
Windows+D = Show Desktop (Press it again brings back the applications)
Windows+F = Find
Windows+L = Lock Windows
Windows+M = Minimize all the applications
Windows+Pause = Computer Management

Q: So, how to show the desktop and right click on the recycled bin?
A: Windows+D, Navigate with arrows to recycled bin, SHIFT+F10.
Q: Why are you using SHIFT+F10, CTRL+Escape etc?
A: Long long time ago, there weren’t keyboards with the Windows keys.
When running on battery power, my laptop has slow network speed. When connecting the adapter the network speed is normal

By default, the Configuration Manager 2007 site server role component installation files are installed on the first available NTFS formatted disk drive with the most available free disk space. However, some files are not installed in the default installation folder. For example, files are installed in the following folders:
- The SMS_CCM folder (if the management point site system role is enabled on the computer);
- The Inetpub\wwwroot\SMSComponent and Inetpub\wwwroot\SMSReporting_sitecode folders (if the reporting point role is enabled on the computer);
- The %Windir%\System32 folder.
Configuration Manager 2007 will not install site role component files on a drive that contains a file named no_sms_on_drive.sms. Instead, site role components will be installed on a different NTFS formatted disk drive that does not contain the no_sms_on_drive.sms file.
The no_sms_on_drive.sms file prevents site system role component installation, on a drive with this file present, for all site systems that are installed by site component manager. If site role installation files are already present on the drive before placing the no_sms_on_drive.sms file on the drive, the installation files are not moved.
