If you’re blocked from a network because of some MAC address filter that is set on a modem, router or firewall, you may want to spoof your MAC address so that the network will recognize your device and grant you access to connect. This article explains how you can spoof MAC addresses on a Windows machine.
You know about the native Windows applications like Notepad, Task Manager, etc. These applications have been there in Microsoft Windows operating system since its earliest versions.

Developers often need to set up “playground” development environments where they have full privileges to manipulate stuff. Here, I summarize the steps for setting up a SharePoint development virtual machine (VM). These steps apply to on-premise installations of both SharePoint 2010 and 2013.
At the end of my previous post Moving A VirtualBox VM With Snapshots, I described a common VirtualBox error you may experience when you try to clone virtual machines and move them around. The error is associated with VirtualBox Guest Additions which is usually installed across individual virtual machine instances.
VirtualBox allows us to copy a virtual machine from one host to another easily. You just copy the hard disk file (usually .vdi or .vhd) to the new host. Then you use the transferred hard disk file to start up a new virtual machine on the new host. That’s it! However, I have found that if you use this method on a VM containing snapshots, you only get an old machine state of the original virtual machine. All saved snapshots are lost. In this tutorial, I explain how to move a VirtualBox VM to a different host and still retain the snapshots on the original host.
