Sitecore Control Panel
If you would like to know about each option, the SDN link is very helpful. OR why don’t give a try on your local environment and see what it does?
My favorite options from Sitecore Control panel are as below:
- Change Your Desktop Background
Changes background of your Sitecore desktop. It’s very useful option in case you’re working with different environments – each environment can have different Desktop Background image. It can save you from unwanted actions!
- Clean Up Databases
Detailed description could be found by the following link
- Rebuild Link Database
Sitecore maintains a list of links used on the site. These links are stored in the ‘Links’ table. If you’re working within the team – from time to time some weak/missed links could have a place; the only way to solve it – run Rebuild link database.
- Install a Package
