On my latest project I’m working on I was having serious trouble with SharePoint Designer. As soon as I opened a certain page it hung up, crashed, collapsed and in many cases it wasn’t responding.

If you’re like me using SharePoint over the Internet (for extranet, and other purposes) and if you’re opening the same site a lot of times, you might want the computer to remember the username and password for that site. But the computer simply doesn’t want to remember the username and password… Although many do not […]
