Automatically set focus on search box in start menu win server 2012
When working with SharePoint, you sometimes find yourself working on the server via RDP. It is then good to be able to work efficiently without unnecessary obstackles that slows down your productivity.It is great to see that the start button is back, both in Win 8.1 and in Win server 2012.When I first logged in on the server, I was prompted to select start menu style and behaviour.

Stop contributors from editing pages in SharePoint 2013
An interesting thing about default settings in SharePoint 2013 (and maybe previous versons as well) is the way that default permissions are set up. Consider this scenario:-You want to divide your users in two groups, administrators and contributors, where admins have full access and contributors can only view and edit list and document library contentsYou check out the default security groups, and it turns out there are two groups that covers exactly what you want. So you just assign admins to the ......
