Outlook Calendar Stuck in List View
Earlier today, my Outlook 2010 calendar got stuck in List View. It only took a couple of clicks to fix it, but List View would return each time I pulled up my calendar. The problem persisted even after deleting and re-creating my Outlook profile. I found the answer at the bottom of this Microsoft support thread:
Close Outlook, then run the command “outlook /cleanviews" from the "Start->Run…" menu […], then start Outlook again.
Worked like a charm. Of course, in Windows 7, you’ll want to either type the command in the search box on your Start Menu or hit Win+R to bring up the Run dialog.
Dell XPS 400 “Unknown Device”
Recently, I rebuilt a Dell XPS 400 and there was one pesky device in Device Manager that I couldn’t find a driver for. I tried searching Google by the device instance ID (ACPI\AWY001\2&DABA3ff&0), but mostly found other people with the same problem.

How to Make Your Android or iOS Mobile Device Show in the “Devices” tab in Spotify
I’ve been a Spotify user for a few weeks now, and recently subscribed to the premium service so that I can sync tracks to my Android device. However, I found that I couldn’t get my local music to sync over wifi to the phone. I though perhaps it was a problem with my Droid X2, but as it turns out, the problem was actually a Windows Firewall setting (thanks to Rex S. for the tip). Here’s how to fix it in Windows 7:
- Press the Windows key, then type “allow a program”.
- Find “Allow a program through Windows Firewall” at the top of the Start Menu and click on it.
- Scroll down the list to find Spotify.
- Check the boxes for the networks you want Spotify to be able to access. You will likely find that “Public” is already checked. You’ll want to check “Domain” and/or “Home/Work (Private)” depending on which type(s) of network you connect to.
In a few moments, your device should show up in the “Devices” tab and you will be able to sync all of your playlists!
