Windows Tips are mostly version dependent. So they are grouped by windows version into three categories:
But at the same time there are several generic tips that are applicable to all versions of Window. Among them:
Quickly Copy Error and Display Messages
...copy the CLIP.EXE file from a Windows Server 2003 into your system's path (best if placed in %systemroot%\system32 folder). You can also get the file from HERE (14kb)

See Sysinternals Sync.
UNIX provides a standard utility called Sync, which can be used to direct the operating system to flush all file system data to disk in order to insure that it is stable and won't be lost in case of a system failure. Otherwise, any modified data present in the cache would be lost. Here is an equivalent that I wrote, called Sync, that works on all versions of Windows. Use it whenever you want to know that modified file data is safely stored on your hard drives. Unfortunately, Sync requires administrative privileges to run. This version also lets you flush removable drives such as ZIP drives.Using Sync
Usage: sync [-r] [-e] [drive letter list]
-r Flush removable drives. -e Ejects removable drives.
Specifying specific drives (e.g. "c e") will result in Sync only flushing those drives.

Rob Brown - Microsoft MVP <- profile - Windows and Devices for IT: Bicycle - Mark Twain said it right.
Here are a few easy ways to invoke the Windows Explorer GUI, which displays certain parts of the directory/folder tree depending on given syntax. I also threw in a few other miscellaneous items.
1. Select Run
Then type "."
This action will invoke the C:\Documents and Settings\mysysad
2. Select Run
Then type ".."
This action will invoke a window that displays C:\Documents and Settings
3. Select Run
Then type "..."
This action will invoke a window that displays My Computer
Other misc Run exercises
Type "explorer" - same as Type "My Documents"
Type "explorer c:"
Type "explorer desktop"
Type "explorer ."
Type "explorer .."
Type "control panel"
Type "ping MySysAdDOTCOM"
Type "c:" or "d:" or "a:"
