SharePoint 2013 Permission Report: Check Access Rights for a Specific User

SharePoint 2013 Permission Report: Check Access Rights for a Specific UserI’m pretty sure that by now many of the SharePoint SME’s out there would have tried the “Check access rights script for a specific user” . Now if you’re new to this , please take a look at the link below to understand what this script is all about .It’s a very powerful tool with some limitations.  I happened to work with this script recently and listed below is my experience with this script . It doesn’t get really granular and looks for all the bits and pieces and retrieve the complete information we are looking for .For instance it can’t get the permission assigned on a list item and its just stops at the list level .In addition to that it doesn’t look for the security groups too. The script takes atleast not less than 30 mins to 1 hour to run depending upon the size of the FARM and the contents it has as it has to go through all …

Windows 10 Display Driver Issue - Resolved


On my laptop, I recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Right after the upgrade was over, I found that, the Device Driver came up only as Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and I was unable to do anything with the brightness (it was full and you could imagine how it would have hurt the eyes). Obviously, I also could not connect to the projector because of the display driver.

I searched in the OEM's site (Sony Vaio in my case) and it said, the drivers for Windows 10 are all going to be available only by Nov 2015!

Wow - I can't wait till then - right? I decided to downgrade to Windows 8.1!

Then came to rescue was!

I downloaded this, ran a scan and it identified and showed that - there is a latest version of Microsoft Basic Display Driver that is available!

I installed the same and bingo - I had the brightness controlled and also the projector started working!

Infact, drivermax tool showed that there were 18 drivers that were outdated!
