Microsoft just launched a big anniversary update with a lot of new features. If you already use the great Windows 10, go further with the latest updates…
Today I recovered my Windows 10 laptop and I was surprised to see that Microsoft is pushing up his Photo App replacing the old “Windows Photo Viewer”. Because I don’t like the new app and I tried to associate my image files to the old app. The problem is that Microsoft is not offer you this option any more.
The Windows Photo Viewer is hidden deep down it’s new Windows 10 operating system and is kinda hard to access it. You actually need to change some Windows registry and the simplest way to run the desired .reg file from tenforums.
I am a Starcraft player, I really enjoy playing it when my time permits that. Sometimes, when I exit the game I got a black screen doing nothing. The game window is freezed and nothing can be done. When I press CTRL+ALT+DEL the option screen appears and choosing task manager will normally open the task manager. The single problem is the full screen Starcraft window that is placed on top of all other application, including task manager.

One week ago I installed my free Windows 10. Unfortunately, I got this blue screens from time to time with “INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR“.
This tutorial will show you how to stream audio or video files, as well as how to transfer files between your PC (Windows XP, 7, 8 or 8.1) and your Android Phone. This solution is using Wi-Fi connection, therefore you need to connect both of your devices (computer and phone) to the same Wi-Fi network (usually, you home network). This will use the sharing function from Windows (unsecured – no password protected).
All you need for this is:
- PC/Laptop/Tablet with Windows XP or above.
- Android Phone
- Android File Manager App: ES File Explorer File Manager.
If you ever asked a question on this site and you needed to backup your data after OS failure I tend to encourage your to create a bootable USB or DVD with some linux distribution that has “live” option. This means that you are able to operate your computer and access your files from your hardware without make any change to your currently operating system (OS).
For example, you have a PC running Windows 7 operating system and you recently have installed a new driver for one of your PC components/devices. You are asked to restart your PC and after you do that you get the blue screen and you are not able to load your Windows any more. You really need to access one of the files from your PC. What can be done? Read More

If you need to encrypt data on your HDD, you can turn on BitLocker.
“BitLocker helps keep everything from documents to passwords safer by encrypting the entire drive that Windows and your data reside on. Once BitLocker is turned on, any file you save on that drive is encrypted automatically.”
Therefore, you can create a passoword that will encrypt all files and folder on your drive.
1. Right click on the drive you need to encrypt
