    Excel Ray Tracing With Help From C
    https://hackaday.com/2021/09/28/excel-ray-tracing-with-help-from-c/

    It isn’t news that [s0lly] likes to do ray tracing using Microsoft Excel. However, he recently updated his set up to use functions in a C XLL — a DLL, really — to accelerate the Excel rendering. Even if ray tracing isn’t your thing, the technique of creating custom high-performance Excel functions might do you some good somewhere else.

    Go to Device Manager -> Details Tab -> Select “Hardware IDs” from the drop-down. This will give a VID (vendor ID) and a PID (parts ID). Take both and type them into a lookup such as PCI Lookup, might help you to find a driver, had to do this a few times myself (not specifically for WANN). Hope that may help you, good luck.

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-21h2-adds-ransomware-protection-to-security-baseline/

    Microsoft has released the final version of security configuration baseline settings for Windows 10, version 21H2, available today from the Microsoft Security Compliance Toolkit.

    “This Windows 10 feature update brings very few new policy settings,” Microsoft security consultant Rick Munck said.

    “One setting has been added for this release for printer driver installation restrictions (which was also added to the Windows 11 release). Additionally, all Microsoft Edge Legacy settings have been removed,”

    Windows explorer has an option to remove properties from media files:
    Remove Properties and Personal Information. For example, removing Exif data from JPEG files https://blog.didierstevens.com/2022/02/08/windows-explorer-improper-exif-data-removal/

    New Windows PowerToys OCR tool will let you copy text from images
    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/new-windows-powertoys-ocr-tool-will-let-you-copy-text-from-images/

    Microsoft PowerToys is getting a new utility called PowerOCR that lets you select text in an image and copy it directly to the Windows clipboard.

    The new PowerToy is being developed by Windows app/utility developer Joseph Finney who opened a ‘pull request’ on July 4th announcing the new PowerOCR program he was creating.

    As the tool is based on the already published Text Grab app, PowerOCR has seen rapid development with the help of other volunteer developers and Microsoft employees.
