Slash key in Excel

July 8, 2014 Leave a comment

It took me a while to find this so I decided to make an entry here in case anyone else runs across this problem.  I’m working on a spreadsheet for IP address management and have have a column for the CIDR.  /26 for example.  The problem is that as soon as you hit the / key  a bunch of letters pop up over the ribbon.  The same thing happens when you hit the Alt key.  To stop this click File | Options | Advanced and scroll all the way down to Lotus Compatibility and you’ll see Microsoft Excel menu key.  Remove the / in that box and click OK.  Now you can type a / in a cell without the keyboard menu popping up.

Enable console messages on vty lines

I always have a hard time finding this.  Every once in a while I’d like to see the console messages when I’m remotely managing a switch via SSH (or Telnet).  The command is simply “terminal monitor”.  This only lasts for the current session but that isn’t a big deal.
