WMI Explorer 2014: Find, Search and Filter

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013 by Alex Riedel
When I originally designed the new version of the WMI Explorer I only wanted to add Find functionality. You know, like you do in any text editor. Type in an expression, it jumps to the first occurrence and the you hit Next, Next, Next until you get where you want to be.

A week ago I was hanging out with PowerShell trainer extraordinaire Jason Helmick and while we where geeking out over PowerShell tricks and software features (yes, I know, bad, isn’t it?) I asked him how he would improve file groups. (…) (crickets) (…) File groups? So I demonstrated. I learned some time ago that most admins don’t like to use projects.
