Did you know: History in Windows Calculator

This article will start series of posts with things I found but did not know that exist. Not necessary I will write about big things, rather most of posts will be about small findings.

I would like to share what I have discovered last month. I was using Windows Calculator and found that it has an option called "History". It is available in "View" menu and allows to show all operations user performed during calculations.

Arrows are used to navigate between history elements and display previous results.

How to view content of hard disk encrypted with BitLocker

Some time ago I damaged - by accident of course - my laptop with Windows 7 and BitLocker encryption enabled. After I have moved to new laptop I wanted to copy data. So I put old disk to USB hard disk case, connected to my machine and nothing happend, Windows 7 couldn't detect it. I started searching for possible solutions, but  without luck (only some hardcore posts with thousands of strange steps). Finally I found what was wrong. Windows 7 was able to see it, but haven't assigned drive letter to this disk.
So I just opened "Disk Management", found proper disk and assigned letter.

Then window with recovery key appeard.

I have entered it and I was able to copy my data :)

Welcome back

It took me some time to start writing posts. I hope now you will find new things more often. So see you soon...
