Some notes on recording sounds produced by your Mac on your Mac

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/12/04

Sounds funny? Well, it’s a way to record sound the Mac produces so you can find out where the sound actually comes from.

VisionApp: pass Windows key combinations to remote machine

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/12/04

Like MSTSC/RDP, I wanted VisionApp to pass Windows specific key combinations (like Alt-Tab, menu key, PrtSc, and of course Windows key combinations) to pass to the remote.

Though the web-search didn’t turn any good information in the high ranked results, this was remarkably easy:

  1. Right click on your connection
  2. Choose “Properties”
  3. Switch to the “RDP” tab
  4. Set “Apply Windows key combinations” to “On the remote computer”
  5. Press “OK”

One catch:

this only work for new sessions. So you will have to re-connect existing sessions to apply this change.
