A feature I’ve been hoping Google added to Chrome but has yet to come to fruition is being able to move a browser tab over to the far right side and keep it there while all your other tabs are where they usually are positioned on the left side. For me, this would allow me to keep my music and […]
Windows 8 is the successor to Windows 7. It was released to manufacturing on August 1, 2012, and to consumers on October 26, 2012.
Windows 8 brought radical changes to address the rise in mobile devices, including tablets, though it was generally not well received by traditional desktop users.
If you’ve used the Windows operating system for long enough to remember the days when the antivirus that Microsoft offered out of the box wasn’t very good, then it’s important that you keep yourself updated with the news, because the Redmond company has made up a lot of ground: now their built-in antivirus, Windows Defender, is very good. The only […]
It’s no secret that Windows operating systems were often falling victim to virus attacks. Contrary to belief, no operating system out there isn’t susceptible to a virus—you would get them on Mac as well and just as often but there aren’t anywhere near as many people using the Mac operating system and therefore most of the time spent on trying […]
All versions of the Windows operating system come with services. These services differ from other applications and programs in the sense that you can’t actually open and use any type of user interface and they’re always just running in the background. One thing a service does have in common with an app or program, however, is that it can also […]
There are things you can do to help make what you see in the command line easier—adjust the colors of the text and background, make the Command Prompt window smaller or larger, change the font and the font size, change the screen buffer size, wrap the text around the windows—and all of them are done from the Command Prompt’s Properties […]
The text that you input into the command line, including both the text to run commands and the text that shows up after executing commands, can be wrapped text or unwrapped. When the text wraps, it always sticks to the size of the window when you adjust the window. When the text is not set to wrap, making the window […]
You might have tried changing the position of the Command Prompt window when you had the Command Prompt open and then wondered why it sprung back in its original position before you touched it the next time you opened the window. It happens because Windows has it set to a particular position and it always opens to that position unless […]
Every time you use the Windows 10 operating system, processes are running in the background. A process is something that is currently running. Be it an app or program, if it’s running, then it’s going to be showing up as a process in the Task Manager. The Task Manager offers a way for you to manage the processes that are […]
As of March 16th, there is a new version of the Google Chrome web browser available officially released. It’s called the stable channel version 57.0.2987.110. The newer version of Google Chrome comes with a feature called background tab throttling that has never been available before in earlier versions of the world’s most used web browser. When Microsoft launched the Microsoft […]
A large number of people who used to own computers that came with a version of Windows never upgraded to newer versions of Windows. Instead, they just kept the computer with the same version of Windows and updating to newer versions wasn’t really considered normal until they got a new computer. Microsoft didn’t want it to be that way, and […]
By now most of you all know about the latest operating system to come out of Redmond, namely Windows 10. Microsoft decided to ditch the DVD in favor of automatic online updates whereby users can update to the latest operating system without going shopping for the disk at all. While it’s widely believed the Windows 10 OS update is free […]
Do you have a folder or directory in Windows that you want to print the contents of? There are many reasons why people want these printed. You won’t get what’s inside each file printed; you will get the file name printed. You might have heaps of songs in a folder or important documents that you want to store in a […]
The release of Windows 8 Consumer Preview in February saw a multitude of changes when it was released to the public in its Beta form. It seems that its release which was almost three years after its predecessor Windows 7, has given the team at Microsoft ample time to revamp Windows completely. And basic functions that have become part of […]
