How to Run Multiple Instances of Google Drive on Windows for Free
Many of us have more than one Google account, but Google only allows one instance of Google Drive to run at once. Here are three ways that will enable you to use more than one Google Drive account at a time without resorting to a third party app.

Take Back Control Over Driver Updates in Windows 10
Since Windows 10 was rolled out there have been issues with Microsoft replacing drivers with generic Microsoft versions on computers. If you use an NVIDIA graphics card and have windows 10, you'll likely have experienced some disruption and had to download and install the correct graphics driver when it was replaced or otherwise disturbed by a Windows 10 update. It can also disable printer and drivers for other peripherals. This article has several helpful ways to prevent this from happening on a regular basis whether you have Windows 10 Home or Pro. Alternatively, you can back up and restore any current drivers that are working well, see our Best Free Windows Driver Backup and Restore article for the best free software to back up your drivers.
