Create/Restore Internet Explorer desktop shortcut

Internet Explorer (IE) shortcut on Windows desktop is missing! May be it was deleted accidentally or missing due to some unexpected reason. So what would be the way to recreate it? You can create a shortcut just by right clicking on Windows Desktop. But you must give the application path to Internet Explorer installation. How would you find it?

You would do a search on Windows for iexplore.exe on your C drive (Windows drive); and you'll end up seeing a number of iexplore.exe files on your machine. Are these the ones you have to use? which one out of these?

Not exactly. The expected executable will not be shown by a Windows search. The correct file is a "protected operating system file", also it's hidden. By default Windows Explorer hides those files, but still you can view such files by changing the folder options as shown in the image.
Tools->Folder Options->View

The iexplore.exe executable will be available under;
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe


Change Apache Tomcat port 8080 to 80 or another port number

Change Apache Tomcat port 8080 to 80 or another port number. Whether it is Apache Tomcat 5 or Tomcat 6, by default Apache Tomcat runs on port 8080. But there can be situations where there are some other servers running on this same port forcing you to change the port of one of the servers. This article explains how to change this port 8080 on Tomcat (we tested this against Apache Tomcat 5.5 and 6.0 versions).

Here we’ll be using label <CATALINA_HOME> to denote the folder where Tomcat is installed. In our systems, tomcat is installed in the following path.

We need to edit the file named server.xml inside <CATALINA_HOME>\conf folder.

In the server.xml file; locate the following segment.
<!-- Define a non-SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080 --> <Connector port="8080" … /> By changing this 8080 value of port attribute, server would start listening on new port number. <Connector port="8081" … />…
