In tonight's final lesson you are going to learn how to create JScripts that automate a host of different Windows tasks. Therefore, the chapter will be switching from topic to topic pretty quickly. I think that you'll find the variation of topics and pace a lot of fun. For starters, you will learn how to create JScripts that can interact with and configure the Windows desktop, Start menu, and Quick Launch toolbar.
Next you will find out how to control Windows services and create new user accounts. Then you will learn how to connect to and work with network resources. After that you will learn how to store and retrieve data and script configuration settings in the Windows registry. You'll then learn about the Windows application event log and find out how to write messages to it, which you'll find particularly useful in saving error information for later review.
You will also learn how to execute any Windows command or command-line utility from within a JScript. I'll then wrap up everything by showing you how to set up the scheduled execution of your JScripts so that you can run them even when you are away form your computer. If you are ready, let's get started.
