			<div><p>Welcome back to IT Pro Tuesday!</p>

In the latest Security Swarm Podcast: “Passkeys in Microsoft Entra: Benefits, Implementation Tips & More,” we discuss passkeys in the Microsoft ecosystem, including definition, prerequisites, tips for implementation, and the user experience. We also highlight the user-centric enrollment process, role of conditional access, and potential challenges and advantages of transitioning to passkeys.

We’re looking for your favorite tips and tools we can share with the community… those that help you do your job better and more easily. Please share your suggestions on the IT Pro Tuesday subreddit, and we’ll be featuring them in the coming weeks.

Now on to this week’s list!

			<div><p><a href="https://asdf-vm.com/" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">asdf</a> allows you to manage multiple runtime versions from one CLI tool and command interface. Offers a large ecosystem of existing runtimes and tools, with a simple API, backwards-compatibility, and a GitHub Action for use in CI/CD workflows.&nbsp; othugmuffin advises the new Mac user, “If you intend on using Python, I would recommend against installing it from Homebrew and go for something like asdf to manage different versions. You can use it for other things too; e.g., Go, Terraform, Ruby, etc.”</p></div>

			<div><h2>A Tip</h2>
			<div><p>ssiws shares a nice shortcut:&nbsp;</p>

Ctrl-Shift-T will reopen the last tab you closed

themaverick1313 adds: 

Ctrl-W closes the tab that’s open 

and from pmormr: 

Control-Tab and Control-Shift-Tab cycles through your open tabs (forwards and backwards)

			<div><h2>P.S. Bonus Free Tools</h2>
			<div><p><a href="https://github.com/jftuga/less-Windows" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">less-Windows</a> is a standalone version of GNU less (without any dependencies) that has been compiled for Windows 10 and 11. This suggestion was provided by jftuga, who appreciates it as “a terminal pager—similar to more, but allows you to scroll backwards and search.”</p>
