Task Scheduler – command-line End a Running Task

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/11

schtasks /End [/S <system> [/U <username> [/P [<password>]]]] /TN taskname

[WayBackEnd a Running Task

Every now and then you have those Scheduled Tasks consisting of batch files that – despite trying – still ask for user input.

If – even after a reasonable time out – the Task Scheduler still hasn’t killed them, you can kill them by hand with the above schtasks in a snap.

How to Easily Print a Large Image to Multiple Pages in Windows | Scottie’s Tech.Info

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/04

Many applications cannot not do that (Paint.net is one of them), but Paint can at least in Windows XP, 7, 8. and 8.1 (I need to check other Windows versions).:

In any case, here’s what you do:

  1. Open the image you’d like to print in Paint
  2. Select: Print -> Page Setup (Vista and 7), or File -> Page Setup (in XP)
  3. Under Scaling, select Fit to and change the setting to something like “3 by 2 page(s)”
  4. Click OK
  5. Print the image from Paint, and make sure to select “All Pages”

Note the “3 by 2” has the order “horizontal by vertical”.
