  1. Standard warning: Registry Editor is a powerful tool and misusing it can render your system unstable or even inoperable. This is a pretty simple hack and as long as you stick to the instructions, you shouldn’t have any problems. That said, if you’ve never worked with it before, consider reading about how to use the Registry Editor before you get started. And definitely back up the Registry (and your computer!) before making changes. You should also make a System Restore point before continuing. Windows will probably do this automatically when you install the Anniversary Update, but it couldn’t hurt to make one manually–that way, if something goes wrong, you can always roll back. Then, open the Registry Editor by pressing Windows+R on your keyboard, typing “regedit” into the box, and pressing Enter. Navigate to the following key in the left sidebar: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search. If you don’t see a “Windows Search” key (folder) below the Windows folder, right-click the Windows folder and select New > Key. Name it “Windows Search”. Right-click the “Windows Search” key (folder) in the left pane and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the value “AllowCortana”. Double-click it and set the value to “0”. You can now close the registry editor. You’ll have to sign out and sign back in or restart your computer before the change takes effect. To undo your change and restore Cortana in the future, you can just return here, locate the “AllowCortana” value, and delete it or set it to “1”.
  2. We all have computer files we'd like to keep secret from the world. Fortunately, in Windows 10, you can tuck those unmentionable plans or files in a secret folder that is password protected, and you can do it without buying any additional software. A note before you start: We've received comments about issues people have run into with this how-to. So, we went back and performed multiple rounds of testing internally, and can now confirm that following this process closely, step-by-step, should work. Just to be safe, try it out once using a file that isn't important, so you can make sure it works for you. Also, yes, the FolderLocker file can be reverse engineered by someone who understands the process, but this isn't meant to keep tech-savvy folks out, just nosy family members who you don't trust. Here's how to create a folder that you can fill with files you want to keep secret, lock it, open it and repeat. How To Lock a Folder With a Password in Windows 10 1. Right-click inside the folder where the files you want to protect are located. The folder you want to hide can even be on your desktop. 2. Select "New" from the contextual menu. 3. Click on "Text Document." 4. Hit Enter. It doesn't matter what the file will be named. You can delete this text file once the lockable folder has been made. 5. Double-click the text file to open it. 6. Paste the below text into the new document: cls @ECHO OFF title Folder Locker if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER :CONFIRM echo Are you sure u want to Lock the folder(Y/N) set/p "cho=>" if %cho%==Y goto LOCK if %cho%==y goto LOCK if %cho%==n goto END if %cho%==N goto END echo Invalid choice. goto CONFIRM :LOCK ren Locker "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" echo Folder locked goto End :UNLOCK echo Enter password to Unlock folder set/p "pass=>" if NOT %pass%==Your-Password-Here goto FAIL attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Locker echo Folder Unlocked successfully goto End :FAIL echo Invalid password goto end :MDLOCKER md Locker echo Locker created successfully goto End :End 7. Find where it says "Your-Password-Here" in the document. 8. Replace "Your-Password-Here" with the password you want to lock the folder with. 9. Click File. 10. "Select Save As..." 11. Click on the "Text Documents (*.txt)" menu bar that's next to "Save as type:" 12. Select "All Files" 13. Change the file name to "FolderLocker.bat" 14. Click "Save." 15. Double-click FolderLocker. The Locker folder has been generated! 16. Fill the Locker folder with the items you want to protect. 17. Open the FolderLocker file, because it's time to lock that folder up! 18. Type "Y" into the screen. 19. Click Enter, and the Folder Locker window will disappear, along with the Locker folder itself! Your secrets are safe! To unlock the folder, double-click "FolderLocker" to open it. Enter the password you entered in Step 8, and click Enter. The Locker folder is back. You can open it to find your hidden files. Repeat Steps 17, 18 and 19 to lock the folder again. All credit goes to The Author....Henry T. Casey

  4. How To Exit Vim? Multiple Ways To Quit Vim Editor How to exit Vim? How to quit Vim? How do you exit Vi editor? How to save and quit Vim? These are some of the most googled questions about Vim editor. Vim, one of the best terminal based editors, is known for its powerful features. Its ardent users swear by it but it leaves the new users baffled because of the ‘unusual shortcuts’. This even leaves them wondering how to exit from Vim editor. In this article, I’ll show you several ways to exit Vim. We’ll also see some interesting fun facts about exiting Vim. How to exit Vim As we have already seen in advanced Vim tips, there are multiple ways to quit Vim. Let me list them one by one along with the procedure. Press Esc key: This is very important because you must exit the edit mode first before typing the exit command(s). Next, you can type one of the following commands: :q (yes, the colon is included in the command) – This will quite the editor :q! – Quit Vim without saving the data file :wq – Save the file and exit Vim And then Enter key Do note that when you press :, the editor will have the next keystrokes displayed at the bottom left of the terminal. Other ways to exit Vim Normally, you should remember the above three commands and you should be good with exiting Vim. But as I said earlier, there are more shortcuts to quit Vim. These are following: Esc + + Enter (Save and exit) Esc + :qa + Enter (Quit all open files) Esc + Shift ZZ (Save and exit) Esc + Shift ZQ (Exit without saving) Now it is really up to you to choose how you want to quit Vim editor. If you ask me, the first method is what you should opt for. Because you save (without exiting) with :w command and then you can use :wq to save and quit (w for save and q for quit). It is easier to remember q for quit. Facts and fun about exiting Vim If you are feeling a little low because you didn’t know how to quit Vim, don’t do that. Because you are not the only one. According to Stack Overflow, over a million developers worldwide searched about how to exit Vim. In fact, exiting Vim has become a talking point in the popular culture. Take this tweet for example. This is one of the most popular fun pokes at the ‘complexity’ of exiting Vim: Which is somewhat surprising because if you run Vim, you’ll see the information about how to exit Vim at the splash screen: Exit command is displayed at the splash screen of Vim But then, obvious things are not that obvious at times. It’s funny that we are so accustomed to Ctrl+S, Ctrl+X shortcuts that it baffles us when we don’t find the same ‘standard’ shortcuts elsewhere. Vim is an excellent editor. If you can master its features, there will be nothing like it. SysAdmins particularly spend a lot of time on the command line. Mastering Vim could really be beneficial. If you are serious about learning Vim, I suggest this video course from Linux Training Academy. I hope this tutorial helped you to exit Vim. Do share your views and thoughts on it. Source
  5. How to Disable All of Windows 10’s Built-in Advertising Windows 10 has a lot of built-in advertising. This isn’t just about the free upgrade offer: Even if you purchase a new PC that comes with a Windows 10 license or spend $200 for a copy of Windows 10 Professional, you’ll see ads in your operating system. You can, however, disable a lot of it. Disable Lock Screen Ads RELATED ARTICLE: How to Disable Ads on Your Windows 10 Lock Screen Windows 10 now displays ads on the lock screen via Windows Spotlight. Sometimes, Windows Spotlight will just show off cool wallpapers, but it’ll also sneak in advertisements for games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Quantum Break in the Windows Store. To get rid of these lock screen ads, head to Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen and set the background to “Picture” or “Slideshow” instead of Windows Spotlight. You’ll probably also want to disable the “Get fun facts, tips, and more from Windows and Cortana on your lock screen” option here, too. Stop Suggested Apps From Appearing in the Start Menu RELATED ARTICLE: How to Get Rid of “Suggested Apps” in Windows 10 Windows 10 will occasionally show “suggested apps” in your Start menu. Suggested apps aren’t necessarily free, and we’ve seen Microsoft use this feature to advertise $60 PC games from the Windows Store (which, by the way, you shouldn’t buy). But mainly, they just take up valuable space in your Start menu. To stop suggested apps from appearing in the Start menu, head to Settings > Personalization > Start and set the “Occasionally show suggestions in Start” setting to “Off”. Get Rid of Nagging Tips Windows 10 also has helpful “tips” that often serve to push Microsoft apps and services. Tips have included recommendations to use Microsoft Edge for better battery life, and an encouragement to use Microsoft Edge so you can earn Microsoft rewards points. If you’d like to just use your own preferred applications without Microsoft nagging you, you’ll need to disable these tips. To do so, head to Settings > System > Notifications & Actions and disable the “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows” option. Stop Cortana From Bouncing on the Taskbar RELATED ARTICLE: How to Disable Cortana in Windows 10’s Anniversary Update Cortana doesn’t just sit on your taskbar and wait for you to start talking to it. Cortana will regularly bounce in place, encouraging you to try using it. If you don’t want Cortana nagging you, click the Cortana search bar, click the Settings icon, scroll down, and disable the “Taskbar Tidbits” option. From then on, Cortana will sit quietly until you want to use it. If you don’t want Cortana running at all, you can choose to disable Cortana with a registry or group policy setting. Microsoft removed the old, easy toggle that lets you disable Cortana with the Anniversary Update, but the registry and group policy tricks still work. Banish “Get Office” Notifications RELATED ARTICLE: How to Disable the “Get Office” Notifications on Windows 10 Windows 10 includes a “Get Office” application that sits there, providing notifications suggesting you download Office 365 and enjoy a month-long free trial. To stop those Get Office notifications, head to Settings > System > Notifications & Actions, scroll down, and set notifications for the “Get Office” app to “Off”. You can also simply find the Get Office app in your Start menu, right-click it, and select “Uninstall”. However, it may come back when you update Windows 10 in the future. Uninstall Candy Crush Saga and Other Automatically Installed Apps Windows 10 “automatically downloads” apps like Candy Crush Soda Saga, Flipboard, Twitter, and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition when you sign in for the first time. PC manufacturers can also add their own apps and live tiles that appear installed by default. These apps are installed as part of the “Microsoft Consumer Experience”. There was a group policy setting to disable this, but it was removed from consumer versions of Windows 10 in the Anniversary Update. Only Windows 10 Enterprise users–not even Windows 10 Professional users–can turn this off. You can remove these apps and tiles, however. To do so, just open your Start menu, locate any apps you don’t want to use, right-click them, and select “Uninstall.” Apps like Candy Crush Soda Saga and FarmVille 2: Country Escape will appear as tiles by default, but you can also find them under the all apps list. Some apps are simply given a tile but aren’t yet downloaded. To remove these tiles, just right-click the tile and select “Unpin from Start.” You won’t see an “Uninstall” option because the tiles are just links that take you to the Windows Store where you can download the app. Disable Live Tiles and Unpin Windows Apps RELATED ARTICLE: How to Make the Windows 10 Start Menu Look More Like Windows 7 While you can remove the apps that are installed as part of the Microsoft Consumer Experience program, Windows 10 also includes quite a few apps you can’t uninstall that advertise to you. For example, the Store and Xbox tiles often make use of the “live tile” feature to advertise apps and games Microsoft wants you to download. To disable live tiles that advertise to you, right-click a tile and select More > Turn live tile off. You can also just right-click a tile and select “Unpin from Start” to get rid of the tile entirely. You can even choose to unpin all the tiles and only use the All Apps list to launch apps, if you like. Avoid the Built-in Solitaire Game RELATED ARTICLE: You Don’t Have to Pay $20 a Year for Solitaire and Minesweeper on Windows 10 Stay away from the “Microsoft Solitaire Collection” game preinstalled on Windows 10. This app doesn’t just have advertising–it has video ads that are 30 seconds long. You can avoid the advertising by paying $10 a year. Microsoft’s Minesweeper game isn’t installed by default, but it too has its own $10 a year subscription fee. Those are steep prices for games that used to be free. Play another free Solitaire game instead. Google now offers a solitaire game–just search for “solitaire” and you can play ad-free solitaire in Google’s search results. We’ve also put up our own completely free Solitaire and Minesweeper games on URLs that anybody can access in a desktop browser. We didn’t put any ads in these games, so you can play ad-free: solitaireforfree.com minesweeperforfree.com Expect to see Microsoft add more advertising to Windows 10 in future major updates. Windows 10’s Anniversary Update turned more of the default tiles on the Start menu into “sponsored tiles”, for example. Source

  7. How To Install Linux On An Android Device Unleash the full potential of your Android device by installing Linux OS on it Installing Linux on Your device involve four steps which are -installing BusyBox, installing Terminal Emulator, placing required files in SD card and finally running the Linux OS. Step 1: Installing the BusyBox libraries Before you start you’ll need: Android Device 4 GB SD card(or more) Root Access Full Backup of your data(for recovery if something goes wrong) You can get BusyBox from Play Store by clicking here. All you have to do is to download and install it. Step 2: Installing a Terminal You’ll need a terminal emulator for using your Linux OS. Installing this is recommended. Step 3:Putting required files in place Connect your device to your PC (remember to enable the USB mount), and then download this file and this file. Create a new folder in your SD card and name it Ubuntu(or whatever you like) and then extract these files in the folder. Step 4: You’re almost ready Go back to the Terminal app and write “su’ again. Then write “cd /mnt/sdcard”. To confirm everything is working try to write “ls” and see if you can recognize your folders (you might find the ubuntu folder as well). To start our ubuntu write “cd /ubuntu” and then “sh ubuntu.sh”. This will execute many procedures which are trying to set your system. It will request to enter a resolution. Use number x number format to express it. For example: 600×400 is the proper format. For the best appearance and performance I suggest 800×480. Now everything is done. The ubuntu system is running , however we can’t see it. To see it , we must use a VNC app. We can download it from Play Store. Thats it! However if you feel any difficulty in any of the steps or require further information, you may drop your query in the comments. Source
  8. Microsoft has created a new "How To" site that teaches you how to use your phone like an expert. Included on the site is a number of videos that reveal how to personalize your phone, how to use Cortana, how to play music and games, how to use the camera, and more. This is a timely move by Microsoft, since the software giant has just started rolling out the Lumia Blue update for Lumia phones. This includes Windows Phone 8.1, and thus, there might be some questions about new features such as Cortana. The virtual personal assistant is available in the U.S. for Windows Phone 8.1 users, and will soon be released world-wide. If you're new to the platform, or want to learn some of the things that you didn't know that your phone could do, check out the homepage. Easy to understand videos show you precisely how to get certain features to run on your Windows Phone handset. Homepage Source
  9. iOS 7.1 didn't bring a ton of new features the table, but the few tweaks and improvements it did add make iOS a lot more useable. Unfortunately, iOS 7.1 isn't jailbroken, but if you want to keep your jailbreak and still get the new features, you just need to track down a few tweaks. Get the New Calender The Calendar in iOS 7.1 got a few handy little improvements, including a better list view that makes it easier to read your upcoming plans and new holidays. It doesn't sound like much, but it really does make the iOS 7 calendar easier to use. Thankfully, jailbreakers can get the new calendar with Gregorian. You'll find it by searching for Gregorian in Cydia in Ryan Petrich's repository. You'll need to add that repository manually. Just head into Cydia, tap Manage > Sources, then Edit and add: http://rpetri.ch/repo/ Speed up Animations Animations are a lot faster in iOS 7.1, which makes it so opening and closing apps, navigating between pages, and moving between folders a lot less nausea inducing than on iOS 7. Thankfully, you don't have to upgrade to get the improved speed. Speed Intensifier is a free tweak that allows you to set the speed of animations to your liking. Tone down the White iOS 7.1 added a handy feature to tone down the whiteness so your phone doesn't blind you at night. While this isn't directly possible with a jailbroken phone, you can use F.lux to get a similar effect. Basically, once F.lux is installed, you can play around with different settings to change the color temperature. With a little tweaking you can get a similar effect to the one available in iOS 7.1. Disable Parallax You can disable the parallax effect in iOS 7 pretty easily, but you lose the nifty animations when you do it. iOS 7.1 added a special configuration just for parallax, but you can easily get it on your jailbroken device too. Just download HiddenSettings7 and Parallax enaBlur. Once both are downloaded, you'll get an option to disable parallax on your home screen or your lock screen, just like in iOS 7.1. Get the IOS 7.1 Icons iOS 7.1 made a few very subtle changes to the icons that most people won't even notice, but if you want to keep things on the level, this Winterboard theme gives you the new icons for Phone, FaceTime, and Messages. Add the Automatic Flash Indicator Another subtle change in iOS 7.1 is a new flash indicator for the camera. When your flash is about to go off, you'll know it based on the icon turning yellow. It's a little thing, but it's actually incredibly helpful for those times when you don't want to accidentally flash someone. Yellow Flash 7 adds a similar function to iOS 7. Source
  10. I can't believe I've never thought of sending it to a temp directory. Thanks for this info.
  11. Hi Guyz, Just Got PES 2014. Am having issues with play this game because of this Any idea how I can increase it?
  12. I have discovered a hidden secret feature of Windows 8.1 which allows you to open the Start Screen personalization options with one click. As you may have seen from first hand experience, opening the Start Screen personalization requires several steps. You must switch to the Start Screen, then open the Charms and click "Personalize". This involves too many clicks and if you frequently need to change personalization settings, it can get tedious. From now on, you will be able to create a special shortcut anywhere you want, e.g. right on your Desktop! Let's explore this useful feature. 1. Right click on the Desktop and choose New -> Shortcut from its context menu 2. Type or copy-paste the following as the shortcut target %localappdata%\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-US\SettingsPane_{911DD688-AEBA-4214-8C58-9C8FBC8C0710}.settingcontent-ms 3. Give the shortcut any name of your choice 4. Optionally, set the desired icon for the shortcut you just created 5. That's it! Now you can simply click this shortcut, and it will take you directly to the Start Screen personalization! more info:
