Facebook Gonna Introduce Unlike Button??


Facebook Unlike Button


For last few days, it's been a big question in the world of web. Is Facebook really thinking about a dislike button? Will Mark Zuckerberg allow it? Not only the facebookers, but the whole world of web is waiting for the answers! Let's explore . . . 


You know, everything shared on Facebook can either be liked, shared or commented. But there is no option to express sad feelings. Not all stories could be liked. Let me recall you the following stories - 

  • The Heart-Breaking Death of 4-year Old Boy Jihad in Unsealed Deep Tube Well in Dhaka, Bangladesh
  • Taliban Attack in Peshawar School, Pakistan (145 Killed)
  • The Killing of 8 Children in Australia
  • The Capsize of Oil Tanker in the Shella River in Sundarbans (350000 Liters Furnace Oil, Covering 350 Sq. KM Area)  
  • The Tragic Death of Australian Batsman Phillip Hughes
  • Rana Plaza Tragedy in Savar, Bangladesh (Approx. 1129 Killed, 2515 Injured)
  • The Missing of Flight 370 with 239 People

Wouldn't you hesitate to hit the like button when somebody shares any of the above news with you? Some people will find it totally illogical to give likes! But still many people will give like to the bad news just to share the posts with friends.


Okay I'm gonna stop talking about major occurrences. But what about these?
  • Your friend just lost his Samsung S4!
  • Your colleague had an accident last night!
  • Your brother failed in the exam
  • You've broken up with someone :(

What do you do in these situations? Or what you expect from others? Thousands of Likes?? 


Why People Give Likes to Sad Events?

Actually it's been a tradition. More likes mean more popularity. So when someone shares a sad but important event, people usually give likes. At the same time, they think - 

If I could give a Dislike/ Unlike!

But you know, it's still impossible since Facebook has only the Like button. 



What's Zuckerberg's Plan?

Zuckerberg's said - 


Facebook thinking about "dislike," but maybe not through a dislike button. We need to figure out the right way to do it so it ends up being a force for good, not a force for bad. 


Actually Zuckerberg is worried about the possible negative impacts of Dislike button. If Facebook adds the dislike button, there could be a disaster in the largest social network. Definitely people will start using the Dislike button heavily. And within a week, there is a possibility of Dislike war among facebookers! 


Same thing happened to Facebook Friend. Facebook users can only be friends. Whatever the relation between two persons, they are always friend in Facebook. However, Facebook was able to avoid this issue. But Google Plus is very clever right from the beginning. In Google Plus, you can create different circles. 


Now the people of the web are waiting to see how Zuckerberg handles the issue . . .

Facebook Introduced Post Search Feature!


Facebook Search Improves


Couple of days ago, I was typing something on Facebook search box. And a notification appeared as - Now you can search posts! I was really surprised. Immediately I tried the feature and it was very useful. With this option, you can find any posts that you've seen before on Facebook. 


Recently, Facebook has improved it's search option. Earlier, we could search for People, Pages or Groups only. But now the users can also search for - 

  • Posts
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Links etc.

Note: Photos or videos can be found by the words used with them while sharing. 


How to Search for Posts/ Videos/ Photos?

Suppose you need to find something on Facebook which you've seen before. It could be either a post, photo or video. Remember the words which were used with it. 
  • Now type the words in Facebook search box. 
  • Don't press Enter. Click on the search icon of the search box.
  • Now you will get the following view - 

Facebook Search Options

Look at the above image. There are options like posts, people, photos, pages, places etc. Try them one by one until you get your desired post. 

Also remember, you may get several results for a single item if it's shared in different groups or pages. 


What Does Facebook Say about it's Search?
  • Find the people and posts that matter to you most.
  • Find any post you've seen before on Facebook.
  • Explore the world through the eyes of your friends.
  • Find old friends - and new ones, too.


Concern for Other Search Engines!

Google or Bing is already capable of searching Facebook posts. If you search something on Google which is already shared by someone on Facebook, Google will show that Facebook page in search result.  

But as there is an improvement on Facebook Search, Google may loose some traffic. Many tips and tricks, news, tutorials are now being shared on Facebook Groups, Profiles of Pages other than blogs or websites. And naturally people may start searching something on Facebook since it enables the users to search for posts!

And what, if Facebook starts a complete web search engine in the future? Mr. Google - Beware!

Write Blog Posts by Windows Live Writer


Windows Live Writer Icon

Though I’m engaged in blogging for two years, I never tried to write posts using any third party tool. Only a few days ago, I've come to know that Windows Live Writer allows to prepare draft post. And after completing the draft, you can publish it on your site!


Why Windows Live Writer?

It’s a good question to start with. Both Blogger and WordPress (or any other blogging platform) have a nice typing interface. You can easily write and publish a post using the default options. So, you may ask – is there any necessity to use Live Writer?
My answer is – YES! Just consider the following points:
  • Live Writer provides an interface that almost looks like MS Word.
  • It allows you to create table without using HTML (Exclusive Feature)!!
  • You can work offline even without connecting to the Internet.
  • You can count words, check spelling and so on . . . 
Live Writer is fully integrated with WordPress. But it also supports all major blogging platforms like Blogger, TypePad, SharePoint etc. After installing the Writer on your PC and adding your blog account, it downloads the theme of your site including font size, style, layout, categories etc.


So, when you’re writing a post offline, you will feel like writing in your own blog platform. Most importantly, you can also preview the post without net connection! But when you’re writing a post using Blogger or WordPress, it’s impossible!



Where do you get this?

Though Windows Live Writer is completely free, it’s not a default program of Windows. You've to download it from Microsoft and then install on your PC. Actually it contains multiple apps including - 

  • Messenger
  • Mail
  • Photo Gallery
  • Movie Maker
  • Toolbar
  • Writer
  • Family Safety
  • Silverlight

Get Windows Live Installer from Microsoft. It's 1.1 MB in size. Now install it on your system:

Windows Live Essentials Apps


First, you've to choose the programs you would like to install from Windows Live. For me, Writer is the only app that I find useful from here. If you need any other app, just tick it. Now press the Install button. 


When the installation is complete, you will be asked to set your homepage and search provider. If you don't need to change anything, just unmark the options and hit on the Continue button. 


Now you will get the Live Writer in your Start menu. After running the program, you will get the following interface:


Windows Live Writer


Look at the bottom. While writing a post, you will be in the Edit Tab. If you would like to get a preview, then hit on the Preview button. 


Adding Blog Account

Look at the Menus. There is a Blog menu. To add your blog account, go to the Blog menu and choose Add blog account . . . 


Add a Blog in Writer

Now choose your desired blog service. Maybe you've to select other blog service option. Press Next button and enter the information as below:


Enter Blog Account Information



Wait few minutes and let the Writer set up your blog. Writer will download the theme of your blog including categories, font style, text size and other information. 


Live Writer is Setting up Blog


After successfully adding the account, you will see your blog at the top right corner of the Windows Writer. 



Using the Writer

Using the Live Writer is very simple. Just after running application, you will be able to start blogging. You can save the post as draft and directly publish it on your site when it's complete. 

  • You can add anything from the right sidebar or from toolbar at the top. 
  • You can choose a label or category from the bottom.
  • To add or remove a blog account, use the Accounts option from the Tools menu.
  • To edit blog settings, go to Blogs menu > Edit blog settings.
  • To create a table, go to Table menu > Insert Table > Enter # of Rows and Columns > Choose Pixels > OK.


Though writer is a very handy tool for blogging but naturally you might face some difficulties. As you can't control your site directly from Writer, you must use your blogging platform ultimately. Writer can only help you to create the draft . . .

Google Cloud Printing - Anytime, Anywhere!


Google Remote Printing


Could you imagine printing from a remote place without network cable? Or could you ever imagine printing from any device like mobile, tablet or laptop which has no printer connected to it? I guess most of you will say a BIG no! But Google Cloud Print technology has made it possible. 



Google Cloud Print

Google Cloud Print enables you to print from a mobile, tablet or PC. You can connect your printer to Google Cloud Print within moments. And when you're out of home (whatever the distance), you can print even from your cell phone if the printer is ready! 



How Does it Work?

Basically it's a cloud technology that works with the help of Google Chrome. You can print right from your chrome browser. To do so, you must need to upgrade chrome to the latest version

To use the cloud print, you must sign in to Google Chrome using your Google account. Then you've to connect your printer to your Google Cloud Print account. After connecting the printer to cloud, you can print from a remote place. And you're also allowed to share your printer with a friend through his Google ID. 



How to Connect the Printer?

I assume that your printer is classic. Now follow the steps below:
  1. Run Google Chrome, open Chrome menu and choose Settings.
  2. Sign in to Chrome if you are not already. 
  3. Scroll down and choose Show Advanced Settings . . .
  4. Now find Google Cloud Print and click on Manage button.
  5. Now you'll get a list of connected printers and available printers.
  6. Go to the Classic Printers section and hit on Add Printers.
  7. Finally you will get a confirmation message - Google Cloud Print has been enabled.



How to Print

Printing method is as usual. But you have to print from Google Chrome. You must be signed in to the Chrome. You've to meet the following conditions too - 
  • The PC (with cloud printer connected) must be turned on
  • Connected to the Internet 
  • Chrome browser installed 
  • Must be signed in to Chrome
Now go to the print option, choose your cloud printer and give print command. Then Google will upload your document and send it to your cloud print account and finally the print job will start if your printer is ready there. 

For any reason, if you can't print, the print job will be stored on your Cloud Print account



How to Share?

You can also share your printer with the friends! Follow the steps below:
  1. Go to the list of cloud printers.
  2. Now choose your desired printer.
  3. Hit on the Share button.
  4. Now you can change the privacy.
  5. You can also invite someone through Name or E-mail. 
  6. Also choose whether he can only print or manage the printer too. 
  7. Finally, hit on the Share button. 

Share Cloud Printers



Limitations
  • Google Cloud Print is still a beta version
  • You can't print from any program other than Google Chrome


Hopefully Google Cloud Print will help you a lot. I haven't been able to test this technology yet. If you've already tried, please inform me.

Convert Webpage into PDF by Google Chrome!


Print PDF using Google Chrome


Often you may need to save a webpage for future use. There are different ways you can follow to save a webpage. Such as - directly copying texts, printing, saving as PDF etc. But in most of the cases, you may not get a satisfactory output. If you're Google Chrome user, I can guarantee that you will get a much better printing option . . . 


Google Chrome Print Window


Google Chrome has a nice printing option other than Windows Default Print Dialogue. Here you will get a preview of the pages which you wanna print. But if you use the system dialogue, there will be now print preview option.

This feature was not available in previous versions of Chrome. So, before you go, you must upgrade to the latest version of Google Chrome. Google chrome also support cloud printing. I will talk later about it. Now let's start - 

  1. Make sure your Chrome is up to date.
  2. Now open a webpage that you wanna save as PDF.

Google Talk is Gonna be Shut Down!!


Google Talk Logo


Few days ago, I just signed in to Google Talk and got the following message - 

Google Talk app for Windows is no longer supported. It is being replaced by the new Hangouts Chrome app. Install the Hangouts app from http://goo.gl/yglfk6. 


It's my post number 400! I'm really sorry to publish a bad news in this post. But I promise, in post number 500, I will try to write something exceptional. I've already got the idea for that post!


I was really surprised and shocked after getting this message. To chat with my friends and blog visitors, most of the time Google Talk is my first choice. I don't like chatting in Gmail because it's heavy and slower. 


Google is trying to promote its Hangout app for Android, Mac and Windows operating system. They are also trying to move the Internet world to Google Chrome. That's why Windows users can't use Hangout without Chrome. Hangout is installed as a Chrome extension which is really bothering. 


But I think Google Talk was a really smart tool to communicate with people. Google could develop the app instead of shutting it down. And some of the Google Talk features are not available in Hangout. In slower connection, you may need to fight to connect to the Hangout. It's really frustrating. 


Last year Google announced that - Google Talk app for Windows is being retired. And from this month, Google Talk users are getting the following message from gmail.com:

Google Talk Chat Box





Now Google is offering the Hangout app. It's a cross-platform application. You can get this tool from:

Google Hangout PNG Logo



Hangout looks smart but I think some changes are necessary. Think about file sharing. Google Talk users can share files but this feature is not available on Hangout. Of course you can share images through Hangout. And it also allows you to draw something in chat window.


Google Hangout Screenshot


You can still use Google Talk. But time is very short - maybe two months at best. And then Google Talk will be turned off forever! :(

Disable Automatic Update in Windows 10


Turn off Automatic Update


As I mentioned earlier, Windows 10 has come with some boring changes. One of the stupid changes is related to Automatic Update. In Windows 10, you're set to automatically install new updates. And you've no choice to change this settings. Because the change settings option is disable. 



Applies to: Windows 10








When you Disable Automatic Update?

  • If your net bandwidth is limited
  • If you don't need windows updates at all
  • If the updates cause activators not work in your PC

In earlier versions of Windows (Windows 7, 8 or 8.1), you can manually configure the update settings. There were four settings:
  • Install updates automatically
  • Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
  • Check for updates but let me choose . . . 
  • Never check for updates

In Windows 10, you don't have any option to choose any of these settings. It's simply disabled. You can't use the drop down menu. Look at the image below:


Update Settings is Disabled in Windows 10


But still you have a chance to configure Windows Update. And you've to enable this settings from Group Policy Editor. In this post, I'm gonna discuss about enabling/ disabling Automatic Update of Windows 10. 


Instruction

  1. Press Start+R > Type gpedit.msc > Press Enter.
  2. Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > All Settings.
  3. Find Configure Automatic Updates (Press C to go there quickly).
  4. Choose Enable > There are 5 choices in the Options > Choose # 5 - Allow local admin to choose setting.
  5. Apply > OK.

Configure Auto Update from Group Policy


Now your automatic update settings will be like this - 


Enabling Update Settings on Windows 10


Have you noticed that the Never Check for Updates option is not available here? This option is vanished from this settings. Anyway, you can stop checking for updates completely. 


Never Check for Updates

If you even don't need to check for updates, then follow the steps below - 
  1. Run > gpedit.msc > Enter
  2. Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > All Settings
  3. Double Click on Configure Automatic Updates
  4. Choose Disabled > Apply > OK.

Now your update settings will be disabled again. But this time, you Windows will never check for any updates!


Enable Never Check for Updates Option


If Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) is not Available?

Then follow this system -

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Scroll to the bottom > Windows Update > Startup Type > Choose Manual > Apply > OK.

Hope this will help. Take a reboot if necessary.





Fix these problems too!

Get Start Screen Back in Windows 10


Windows 10 Start Menu with Live Tiles


Windows 8 came with a really smart look. But due to the negative feedback, the latest version of Windows (Windows 10) has come with traditional Start Menu. And to be honest, I can hardly find any change in Windows 10 which I can appreciate. 


Applies to - Windows 10 Technical Preview.



Combination of Start Menu & Tiles

It looks really frustrating. To be honest it's not worth of including here. In this combination, I can't work comfortably. And I guess most of the users have already adjusted with Windows 8 Start Screen. So it was not necessary to change this feature in Windows 10. Windows 8 lovers will hardly appreciate the new look!


Windows 10 Start Menu with Live Tiles


Anyway, if you are comfortable with Start Screen and wanna get it back, there is no problem at all. You can easily switch between Start Menu and Start Screen. Simply follow the steps below:

Enable Start Screen in Windows 10


  1. Right Click on your taskbar and select Properties.
  2. Go to the Start Menu tab.
  3. At the top, you will find this option marked - Use the Start Menu instead of the Start Screen.
  4. Simply click on the checkbox and unmark this option.
  5. Hit on Apply > OK and get your smart Start Screen back!

Windows 8 Start Screen



Installing .Net Framework 3.5 in Windows 10

.Net Framework 3.5 is missing by default as it was in Windows 8 and 8.1. And it causes problems while running those software which require this feature. Don't worry. You can install .Net Framework 3.5 following the same instruction as it was in Windows 8. Simply follow this method
