Installing Windows on a Virtual Machine

Installing Windows on a Virtual Machine Running a Virtual Machine with VMware is a very fun and helpful thing to have on your computer. You can run multiple platforms if you choose, have great flexibility on how you would like to set up the virtual machine, and is a great tool for IT students to practice with. The first thing you will have to do with your new virtual machine is install an operating system (as you would with any new pc). In this example, we will install Microsoft Windows. If you notice below, I checked off Microsoft Windows as the operating system as I was setting up my virtual machine. Below is how the Virtual Machine looks before it is powered up. For this example, I am downloading a trial version of Microsoft Windows that I am not going to activate, but it will work for this purpose. I downloaded it from the Microsoft site, using a flash drive (at least 8 GB). I used an old 8 GB flash drive for my install. For a small flash drive combined with my slow laptop, the download can take a very long time. Something else to note… This process will erase everything on your thumb drive, so make sure you move your data off of the thumb drive beforehand. Booting up from the thumb drive, Windows will take over, and the process will look like any other Windows install. Again, I am not going to register this install of Windows, so I clicked on the “I don’t have a product key” box. This is where it asks to be...

How to share files in the cloud using Dropbox

Sharing files using an online cloud storage provider can provide many benefits. Convenience, productivity, selective sharing, integration, and access anywhere/anytime are the most prominent benefits to using a cloud storage provider. There are many different cloud storage providers such as: Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Box, Dropbox, and more. I will be covering Dropbox, because it provides an excellent implementation of every one of the benefits that I have listed.   Dropbox allows you to easily integrate their services with a variety of different operating systems. Dropbox can be accessed through an internet browser; however, it supports integration with Mobile, Windows, Linux, and more. This means that essentially whatever platform you are using or have access to, you will be able to access your Dropbox files. With Dropbox integration, you will be able to edit files in a local Dropbox folder even without an internet connection (files which were synced last time you had an internet connection) and they will automatically sync and update next time you are reconnected. In order to upload Files, you may simply copy them to the Dropbox folder or upload them on the Dropbox website. Once files are uploaded they are automatically synced across devices using the most recently modified version. Sharing is quite simple as well; to share files from your integrated Dropbox folder, simply right click your file(s)/folder(s) that you want to share and click the “Share” button with the Dropbox logo next to it. The process is similar for the web interface. On the web interface you can click the “New share folder” button to either create a new folder and share...
