The easiest way I found is just go to Start | Run and type in "c:\windows\assembly\" to open it up in file explorer. It will open GAC under file explorer, the majority dlls will be under GAC_MSIL folder

Sometime I have Developer tool stuck that can’t open window but is added to the task bar.
this worked for me:
1. Close all of your IE Windows
2. Delete the registry entry: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IEDevTools\WindowPos
(optionally, type the following at a command prompt)
reg delete "hkcu\software\microsoft\internet explorer\iedevtools" /v windowpos 3. Open IE again.
4. Press F12 to open the dev tools
reg delete "hkcu\software\microsoft\internet explorer\iedevtools" /v windowpos
3. Open IE again.

schtasks /query /fo LIST /v
to display the properties of the tasks. One of the properties is the last run field. If you could input the results of the query above and last result field.
The command uses the /s parameter to identify the remote computer, Reskit16,
the /fo parameter to specify the format and the /nh parameter to suppress
the column headings. The >> append symbol redirects the output to the task
log, p0102.csv, on the local computer, Svr01. Because the command runs on
the remote computer, the local computer path must be fully qualified.
schtasks /query /s Reskit16 /fo csv /nh >> \\svr01\data\tasklogs\p0102.csv
Checking the Task Status
Periodically check the status of scheduled tasks, because sometimes you may not be aware that a scheduled task did not run. Use the Detail view in the Scheduled Task window to see the following information about each task:
- Schedule – The schedule for the task.
- Next Run Time – The time and date that the task is next scheduled to run.
- Last Run Time – The time and date the task was last run.
- Status – The current status of the task.
- Last Result – Code that indicates the result of the last run.
The Status column has the following status and description information:
- Blank – The task is not running, or it ran and was successful.
- Running – The task is currently running.
- Missed – One or more attempts to run this task was missed.
- Could not start – The most recent attempt to start the task did not work.
The Last Result column displays a completion code. You can obtain a full explanation of all Windows completion codes from MSDN, but the common codes for scheduled tasks are:
- 0×0: The operation completed successfully.
- 0×1: An incorrect function was called or an unknown function was called.
- 0xa: The environment is incorrect.
Here is the Microsoft Page explains “How to troubleshoot scheduled tasks in Windows XP and in Windows Server 2003”

This is a very useful tip. The available options are Yes, Yes To All, No and Cancel. But what if you are copying a large number of files and want to choose the non-existent ‘No To All’ option? Well simply hold in the shift key while clicking the No option and it will apply that choice to all subsequent dialogs within the current operation.

One day, when my VPC was closed unexpected, the IIS can’t restart and throw error:
The Windows Process Activation Service encountered an error trying to read configuration data from file ‘\\?\C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config’, line number ’0′. The error message is: ‘Configuration file is not well-formed XML’
Luckily IIS makes a backup each time you make a change. All those versions are stored in the folder C:\inetpub\history\. All you have to do is to copy a former applicationHost.config file into the C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\ working directory.
