Group Policy Reference Guide
FastAdmin is our practical system administrators utility. It allows you to remotely monitor and manage Windows computers and servers in your Active Directory domain. It consists of a portable admin app (run anywhere; no installation required) and an optional easy to deploy small client agent (one executable file that will also automatically configure the client for remote management if necessary). All computer systems are presented in a grid view. You can quickly filter the table to show only certain computers based on name, organizational unit, logged on user, OS, connected wifi access point, network and many other attributes. It's easy to find out which computer a user is logged on to. Performance statistics (like the ones available in the task manager) are also displayed: cpu activity, used memory, free disk space, disk activity, network activity and wireless signal strength. This way you have a good overview of the general health of all systems. You can select the columns to be displayed from a list of presets (ie Hardware, Security, Performance) or create your own custom view.
A fully operational 1 month trial of FastAdmin is available.
The administrator can select one or multiple pc's and perform actions like:
- Open a remote command prompt as system user
- Start remote PowerShell session
- Execute files on selected remote computers or groups (install msi setups, run scripts or batch files or import registry files)
- Connect with the Remote Desktop Client

Group Policy Reference Guide
This interactive and full-text searchable app makes it easy to lookup Windows Group Policy Settings. You can open multiple ADMX files at the same time. The program will analyse the selected group policies and display all important information in one clear overview.
You can sort on columns like ADMX file, class, path and name. It includes a powerful search engine that enables you to quickly find the GPO setting you are looking for. It includes full descriptions of all available GPO settings.
Examples of supported search terms:
taskbar or “start menu”
class:user “internet explorer”
You can choose the language to view (including languages like Japanese and Korean) as long as the ADML language files are available. It is possible to show or hide and rearrange columns to your liking. The tool does not use a predefined static database. It can open any ADMX file and the program will generate a searchable catalog database for you. You can save and reopen this database later.
Optionally you can mark settings and add your own notes to the guide. This way the guide can act as a Group Policy best practices guide.
You need this tool if you have to configure or analyze Microsoft Group Policies. It will really help you to be a more efficient sysadmin by saving valuable time. With this tool navigation and reading through group policies becomes fast and finding a specific group policy is a breeze.
To get you started we include a group policies catalog database for Windows 10 (and earlier) and Office 2016.
Pricing is based on the number of users that consult the guide. In practice this means that every sysadmin that opens the Group Policy Reference Guide (GPRG) must have a license. GPRG is priced $19 (€17).

WsDisplaySettings is useful for quick and easy automatic configuration of multiple monitors or display devices like beamers. You can create shortcuts for presets so users don't have to play with Windows display settings. All display settings can be saved to file including details like the monitor resolution, position and primary setting.
By ‘installing’ WsDisplaySettings a simple mouse click on a saved display settings file is enough to apply these settings. This makes it possible to create preset files (with file extension .dis) with different display configurations for end users so they can easily choose their preferred display mode.
