The Simplest Way To Share Text, Images, Sketches Etc 1 hour 22 min ago rltidd27

Seems to me that using Keep, OneNote or our favorite Evernote would make much more sense. By signing up ahead of time all are available on the web. Would not need to memorize a url. Just sign into your account and make a note.

You may want to look into an old program called ECCO. It has been enhanced over the years by an individual that goes by the name Slang.
Great for outline indexing, calendar and phone book. The left column can contain various folders to segregate your notes.

Transfer Files Between Devices With No Hassle 1 day 34 min ago lastsaves

Hi, it definitely works, at least between Win7 and Android.
However, I am trying to resolve one problem. From Android 4.4. Kitkat, apps are not able to access external SD card in general, only the folder they themselves created (and it has to be located in Android/Data/ folder). While Dukto does not create any such folder, it is possible to create it manually. but it has to have specific name. Does anyone know how to name this folder to get it work with external SD card? I tried to contact the developer, but he said he has no idea :(

Best Free Window Manager/Resizer/Arranger List 1 day 6 hours ago shnbwmn

Lots of options. Too bad most of these haven't been developed in years.

I for one use a combo of AltDrag, Gridy and WindowPadX*, and it works like a charm. Gridmove is also very intriguing, with its huge number of grids available. If you have a certain window layout that you like then it's ideal.

There's also a lot of power in the default Windows hotkeys, like Win+Tab, Alt + Tab, Alt+Esc, Win + T, Win + D, and Win + arrow keys, especially in Windows 10. Power utilities like the glorious Autohotkey should also be in everyone's setup. For instance, I've scripted Win+Q to send Alt+F4, so that windows can be closed quickly; Win + F makes a program fullscreen; Win + [ minimizes all windows, while Win + ] restores all windows; Win + M minimizes only the active window ... etc.

On top of all that, one can also cut down time searching for file/folders/apps by using good launcher programs, like FindAndRunRobot and QuickAccessPopup. With the latter, a simple middle mouse click or Ctrl+Space gives me access to all my important folders or any files that I need to work on. FARR can be configured with aliases to do pretty much anything you want. Alt+Space, type in one keyword, and I can do internet searches, kill processes, open a predefined set of folders, etc.

This kind of thing works even better if you have a portable app setup. All the programs I mentioned are portable, so I have all that power even when working across different computers. I can start them up and shut them down quickly with two little .cmd files I created in the root directory of my drive. It's really amazing what can be achieved with a little thought and configuration.

* Download the master zip from GitHub (https://github.com/hoppfrosch/WindowPadX), as well as AHK_L (https://autohotkey.com/download/1.1/). Place AutoHotKey.exe in the WindowPadX folder and rename to WindowPadX.exe. You can change hotkeys in the ini folder. Also be sure to check the help file (http://hoppfrosch.github.io/WindowPadX/files/WindowPadX-ahk.html) for more functions, like RollToggle, etc.

Best Free Windows Apps 1 day 19 hours ago deya

I've been using 123 Image Viewer for a while now. It's good but I find it a bit buggy, although I notice it's getting updated so I'll stick with it. I've also been using Penteract Picture Viewer which is also quite good but the same applies, it's a bit buggy and could do with an update. But out of those two I prefer Penteract for my needs.

My requirements for an image viewer on one Windows 10 device are simple. I just need to view images stored locally on my 2 in 1 laptop, preferably by using touch, pinch zoom etc. Nothing fancy as regards editing and so on. I can use the Windows Photo app for that.

So I've looked around the Store, read the reviews, tried a few. The one app that I've found, so far, that suits my needs best is Photo Moto. It's a simple image viewer for your locally stored images, no more. But it works the best with touch out of the three I've mentioned. It's very responsive, navigation, zoom etc.

I just needed an image viewer (free) that allows me to quickly load images and zoom in to see them in more detail - mainly for work. Photo Moto is proving to be excellent for that.

Just a bit of an update from my previous post ....... and thanks for the apps lists :-)

You could also try a DNS testing changing tool such as is available here - http://www.sordum.org/7952/dns-jumper-v2-0/

It is basically an automated multi entry pinger. I use this one and it works great for changing DNS servers.

If you wish, you can add additional DNS entries by altering the .ini file, setting up the new entries in the same format as the already included ones.

Note: If you have little children also using the computer (I don't), you may want to try the one setup for them
such as the one they have - http://www.sordum.org/8127/dns-angel-v1-4/ - to avoid them accessing unwanted content.

Best Free Email Software 1 week 4 hours ago maxfan

Thanks a lot. It's been working fine for me so far, some points about it I've noticed are:
- adding imap accounts was straightforward
- no memory leaks so far
- like TB you can have a unified inbox which I really appreciate
- the search function is, I think, the way TB used to be. When you type an item in a search box it brings up a new tab with filters on the left and the emails on the right in a view that shows the header and first few lines of each email. There's also an icon and when you click on it it shows a timeline of those emails like this - http://techreport.com/r.x/2009q4/thunderbird3-search-il.png
- I guess it may have a longer life expectancy than Thunderbird.
- for the normal user, really very similar to Thunderbird, no major difference in speed or stability. For anyone happy with TB I wouldn't see any need to change. Pale Moon fans will want to "complete the set."

I also recently removed Avast from my WinXP laptop. I was having problems with mini-freezes, sluggish behavior, and most recently, complete freezes before the full boot-up was finished. I narrowed it down to Avast (the freezing, that is), and replaced it with Comodo Antivirus (just the antivirus, not their Internet Suite), since I already had the Comodo Firewall installed.

The freezing was immediately gone, and now the system seems to startup, shutdown, and run a little faster.

I also dont like the kitchen sink approach that the software has taken into adding tweaking software etc to the app. Stick with being an anti-virus software!

The above generalizations about state tax returns not being free are incorrect.

It can depend on what state or states you are filing in, your Adjusted Gross Income from your federal filing, your age, if you qualify for the federal Earned Income Credit, and more.

I'm a Michigan resident and with my status I can file a free state return with TurboTax, TaxAct, Jackson Hewitt, and a number of other IRS approved on line tax preparation web sites.

If you want to file a state return for free, check the IRS Free File info and look at the various options. Keep in mind that in some cases the IRS info may not be fully accurate and you may need to go to the individual free tax providers web page to see what they offer for your specific situation. It took me less than 15 minutes to find a half dozen options that worked for me.

The rumor I heard about truecrypt was they shut down rather than cave to federal pressure to provide a backdoor to their software. One of their selling points was that not even the USA Feds could crack their vaults. Now you seem to be saying something different. While I'm wondering if the veracrypt is a truecrypt compromise and provides the backdoor the Feds insisted upon? See, where I got that rumor was here on the to gonzo web site. Now you seem to be saying that truecrypt did have a backdoor and veracrypt does not. Confuses me. I still have an truecrypt.exe and I'm thinking I'm safer with it - not because I have something to hide from the Feds but if they have the backdoor key, what stops some other hacker

Too bad VeraCrypt does not yet support system encryption with UEFI boot. Apparently there's no experts on UEFI willing to contribute to this open source project. Support for UEFI has been on VeraCrypt developers' to do list for over a year now, but not much progress.

The audit turned up no backdoor in TrueCrypt, but I have yet to see an independent audit of VeraCrypt. Until then, I'd be a bit wary at trusting VeraCrypt.

TrueCrypt Is Dead. Long Live VeraCrypt! 1 week 4 days ago oblivion Another nice feature is that VeraCrypt can open and work with containers created with TrueCrypt (6 or 7) or migrate TrueCrypt containers to VeraCrypt. I did exactly that a few months ago and have been using VeraCrypt successfully ever since. It's an excellent product. view
Superb Simple Editor With Handy Macro Feature 1 week 5 days ago Mighty

Wow. PCWrite. That brings back memories. I think I found it during the v1.x days. Used that for a few years. Then, moved on to Multi-Edit, then Multi-Edit for Windows. There was a lot I liked about the program and the company. I've ended up with Notepad++ for the last few years, and I find I'm pretty comfortable with it.

Good article Rob. An encryption utility is one worth having even if you don't feel your personal data is as valuable as some of 007s secrets. TrueCrypt shut down shortly after an audit was conducted on it so as you stated there are various rumors about what was really going on there. Fortunately VeraCrypt provides a good alternative.

On-Screen Hard Disk Activity Indicator 1 week 5 days ago LeeW777

I kinda like the idea that it also has status indicators for CapsLock and NumLock because the wireless keyboard which I'm currently using has neither. On a side note, it also has indicators for Ctrl, Alt, and Win keys.
Thank you very much for finding and relaying notices for this kind of geek stuff.

Yes, I like Keep a lot too. Simple and powerful. Perfect for short, random notes, urls, photos etc. Has OCR. Much faster than OneNote. I use both.
