Enabling Office SharePoint Server Publishing Feature

To enable publishing features you need to enable publishing in your SharePoint site. Go to "Site Settings" by using the "Site Actions" button. Click the "Site Features" link in the "Site Administration" category. Clicking the Activate button of Office SharePoint Server Publishing to enable publishing. Some of you might get a message saying publishing is not enabled since Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure is not active.This is because publishing is not enabled from the site collection level, what you need to do is select "Site collection features" from the "Site Collection Administration" category and activate the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature for the entire site collection. Then you will be able to activate publishing by going to "Site features".

Changing the Default Welcome Page of a Site

Do you know that we can change the default page of a site in SharePoint?

This is done by going to "Site Settings" and accessing the "Welcome page" option under "Look and Feel" category.
If you cannot find a link named "Welcome page" that means you don't have Office SharePoint Server Publishing enabled on your site. If you need more help on how to enable Office SharePoint Server Publishing please feel free to read my next post. Now browse or type the page that you want to set as the welcome page and click Ok.

Temporary Internet Files Location

Did you ever tried to locate the place where the temporary files of the Internet Explorer is stored?
Knowing the location is really worth if you edited a file while keeping it in the temporary folder and accidentally close the file without saving it into a proper place.
Exact same thing happen to me, even though I knew the place where it would go in a Windows version prior to Windows Vista, but surprisingly it was different in Windows Vista.
So had to struggle a bit to find it, and I was too late to recover the changes that I did to the document. But since it is here, you are not too late.
C:\Users\ArjunaC \AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5
The trick here is the folder named 'Low' is completely hidden by Vista, even you enable, show hidden and system files and folders the folder 'Low' will not appear. But you will be able to type it and browse the contents of the folder.
