How to Remove Facebook Timeline

Facebook users are often dissatisfied with it due to its controversial activities. One of them is Facebook timeline. Probably this is the most important issue at present for Facebook users. 

Timeline is a new kind of profile that lets you highlight the photos, posts and life events that help you tell your story. If you activate timeline then you'll have 7 days to preview what's there now. This gives you a chance to add or hide whatever you want before anyone else sees it. 

If you activate timeline once then there is no official way to deactivate it! Many users find it too complex as well as boring. 

If you wanna change back to the old style profile or if you haven't got Timeline yet, but just wanna see your friend's Timeline pages in the old style profile format, this guide is for you.

If you visit a personal Facebook Timeline with IE 7 then you will be shown old style profile page for that person. Because FB haven't created any version of timeline that is compatible with IE 7. 

But IE7 is no longer using by the users due to its several limitations and security issues. Now follow the steps below for your browser:

Google Chrome

To change Google Chrome's User Agent you first need to download the appropriate file below, depending on what Operating System you are using. The content of the file is basically the command listed below in the pale blue box. 

Chrome on Windows Vista & 7
If you are using Windows Vista or 7 the command in the file that will run Chrome with IE7 as the user agent is as follows : 
"%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0)"

  1. Download (Right Click on the link, select Save link as... and save the .bat file to your Desktop)
  2. Then Install the F.B. Purity browser extension, as it will fix a lot of the display glitches that will occur when you have your browser set to impersonate IE7.
  3. Close all running Chrome browser Windows and Tabs, then click the previously downloaded .bat file and it will run Chrome with IE7 as its user agent.
  4. Now visit a personal Timeline page and you will see that it is now displayed as a normal, old style profile page. If at any point, you wanna go back to using the normal User Agent, just close all Chrome windows and then open Chrome using your usual Chrome Icon, instead of the Bat file. 

Chrome on Windows XP
If you are using Windows XP the command in the file to start Chrome with IE7 as the UserAgent is as follows: 
"%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0)"
  1. Download  (Right Click on the link, select Save link as... and save the .bat file to your Desktop)
  2. Next Install the F.B. Purity browser extension, as it will fix a lot of the display glitches that will occur when you have your browser set to impersonate IE7.
  3. Close *all* open Chrome browser Windows then click the previously downloaded .bat file and it will run Chrome with the IE7 user agent.
  4. Now visit a personal Timeline page and you will see that it is now displayed as a normal, old style profile page. If you wanna go back to using the normal User Agent, just close all Chrome windows and then open Chrome using your usual Chrome Icon, instead of the Bat file.

Firefox on Windows, Mac or Linux
Its easy to switch Firefox's User Agent to IE7, the steps are as follows

  1. Install the "User Agent Switcher" Extension from
  2. Install the F.B. Purity browser extension, as it will fix most of the display glitches that occur when you switch the browser's User Agent to IE7, and it also has a lot of other cool and useful features for customising Facebook.
  3. Go to Firefox's "Tools/User Agent Switcher/Internet Explorer" menu and select "Internet Explorer 7" 
  4. Now go and view a personal Timeline page, it will be displayed in the old Profile format. BTW If you want to at any point switch the User Agent back to normal, just set the User Agent to "Default User Agent" or else just disable the "User Agent Switcher" extension.
  5. Now go and view a personal Timeline page, it will be displayed in the old Profile format. BTW If you want to at any point switch the User Agent back to normal, just set the User Agent to "Default User Agent" or else just disable the "User Agent Switcher" extension.

Safari on Mac & Windows

  1. Install the F.B. Purity browser extension, this will fix most of the display glitches that occur on Facebook when you use the IE7 User Agent, and it also has a lot of other cool and useful features for customising Facebook.
  2. To switch the User Agent in Safari, you need to first go into the "Preferences" menu, select "Advanced", then tick the "Show Develop menu in menu bar" option, then exit the preferences menu.
  3. Now click the page icon menu (next to the cog wheel icon) then select the develop/user agent menu, there you can choose the useragent you wish to use for the current website you are viewing. Select Internet Explorer 7. 
  4. Now view any personal Facebook Timeline page and it will be displayed in the old style Profile format.

N.B. If you want to restore your User Agent to normal in Safari then just follow Steps 1 and 2 again, but this time select the "Default" user agent

Opera on Windows, Mac or Linux

  1. Install the FB Purity browser extension, which will fix some of the display problems that arise when you set your browser to impersonate IE7, it also gives you lots of options for hiding spam and other news stories and facebook features that you dont want to see.
  2. To set the custom user agent in Opera, enter "opera:config#ISP|Id" into the url/address bar, then enter the Custom User Agent string "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0)" and click "Save" 
  3. Restart your browser and view your profile page, or any other personal Timeline profile page, and it will display it in the old Profile format

N.B. If you wanna restore your User Agent to normal in Opera, just follow the first part of step 1 again, and then click the "Default" button then click "Save"

If you hate Timeline like most of the users then you may submit a complain directly to Facebook about it. To do so, go to Facebook's Official Timeline Feedback form.

If everything is correct then you will be able to see a vertical floating share bar at the left side of your blog.

Customization: This code will give you the opportunity to customize as you like.

Add or Remove Button: You can add or remove button from this code. Notice that each code starts with <div class and ends with </div>. For your convenience I've separated the each code. If you wanna remove one or two codes then just delete the part of the code. When you wanna add something to this code make sure that the new code starts with <div class.

Position: At the beginning of this code you might notice a text like this- #pageshare {position:fixed; bottom:15%; left:3px; float:left;. Now, if you wanna place it to the right side then type right in the place of left. And you can also increase or decrease the size of the button if you are somewhat expert in coding.

Internet users heavily depend on Google and Yahoo in order to use free email service. Google provides only Gmail and Yahoo provides Yahoo, Rocket mail and Ymail. 

Another popular email service is Hotmail that is provided by Microsoft. In this post I am gonna show you how to sign up to a Hotmail account. This is very simple. Just follow the steps below: 

  1. First go to this link. It will take you to the sign up page. 
  2. Now type your desired address and select either hotmail or live from drop down menu. For example: or
  3. Now create a strong password. Mix your password with special character (@, !, $ etc), number and capital letter. 
  4. Select your country and type your phone number below it. 
  5. Now you can either enter an alternate email address or choose a security question as a password reset option.

Find your Files Less than a Second !!

Very often you may need to search for a file or folder in your hard disk. If you know the exact location of that file then there is no problem. But if you work with numerous number of files and folders then it will be really difficult for you to find out the necessary file.

In Windows 7 there is an excellent indexing service for faster searching. Whenever you type something in Windows 7, you can see the results immediately. But Windows XP is not as fast as Windows 7. And to be honest, the search option of XP is not smart enough. 

Though Windows 7 has a great search engine, sometimes it may not show some files. But you can install a small program to search your computer faster than windows search engine. 

By Everything you can search any files stored in your hard disk. You will make no mistake. And it is capable of showing any file within milliseconds!

And if you're using Windows 8, you might notice that its search performance is not as good as Windows 7. Isn't it very strange? 

Actually in Windows 8, only the C Drive's files (Installation Drive) are indexed. Other drives are not indexed by default. In that case you can index the other drives by yourself. Read here to know more: Index Drives to Search Files Faster on Windows 8.

Everything Search Result

  • Small installation file
  • Clean and simple user interface
  • Quick file indexing
  • Quick searching
  • Quick start up
  • Minimal resource usage
  • Small database on disk
  • real-time updating

Requirements: No Special Requirements
  • Works fine with all running versions of Windows. 


Instruction is not necessary. Because this is very easy to download, install and operate. You just need to download the file from the link below. Then install it normally as you install  other applications. 

Now find the icon on your desktop or program list. Run the application. Then search for any file stored in your PC. Enjoy!

Foxit Reader: Fast, light and reliable PDF Reader

Almost every person working with computer and internet needs to use PDF file. What is PDF file and how to create PDF file are posted earlier in this blog. So in this post I am gonna discuss about PDF viewer/ reader.

The standard PDF reader is Adobe Reader. But day by day the size of this standard PDF viewer is increasing rapidly. Its download size has already exceeded 50 MB. And install size is more than 300 MB! 

Consequently many users are fed up with this. They try to avoid it but can't as there is not pure alternative to this software. 

But Foxit Reader can be an ideal alternative to Adobe Reader. Foxit Reader will provide you the following facilities: 
  • Small in size
  • Fast and reliable
  • Read out loud
  • and more
Download Foxit Reader from link 1 or link 2

Windows Experience Index: Assess your PC Performance

If you use Windows Vista, 7 or 8 then you will be able to rate your computer using Windows Experience Index. Windows has its own rating system to estimate computer's capacity or performance. 

Computer users normally rate a computer by analyzing its configuration. For example we can estimate a computer's performance by its RAM, Main Board, Processor etc. A common rating system is the power of processor.

Often we use Pentium IV, Dual Core, Core 2 Duo PC to say a computer's performance. But processor is not everything. A computer's performance also depends on RAM, Hard Disk, Graphics etc. 

In windows operating systems (Vista, 7 and 8) there is a rating system. It is know as Windows Experience Index. Here the scale is 1 to 7.9 that means the minimum score is 1 and maximum is 7.9.

Click to View Full Size Image

To run the assessment all you need to do is just right click on the Computer and select properties. Now you will see the system section. And here you will find an option named Windows Experience Index. Click on it. And then you will see the assessment option. If you've already run this process then you will be able to see your score like below:

Click to View Full Size Image

After clicking the Run the Assessment option the process will begin. It takes 4 to 6 minutes depends on your computer's configuration. During the rating your screen brightness may increase or decrease. But don't be panic as it is usual. 

If your score is 3 then your PC is perfect to run Vista, 7 or 8. But Microsoft declared that a computer with rating point 5 will be ideal to get full performance of the operating system. 

Another thing you should consider is that, the rating score is determined by lowest sub score. So whether your score is 3 or 4 it doesn't mean that your PC is worth of that score. In most cases rating score is very low due to the graphics performance. In that case you can use an external graphics card to improve your computer performance. 

Google +: What is +1 button?

When you browse net and read various articles then you might see the Tweet, Facebook like, Stumble Upon button after the post. But at present time you may see another button with other sharing buttons. This is  +1  button. 

The +1 button is nothing but an alternative to Facebook like button. But don't think it just like Facebook like button. It is something more than Facebook like button. 

When you +1 something actually you're doing many things. Give a   +1   to a post means you're recommending this post on Google Search, Sharing with your friends in your Google + Circle and most importantly you're saving the page in your   +1   list. 

In order to use the Google +1 button, you must have a Google Account. And the account should be visible to public. If you don't set your profile publicly visible then you will not be able to see and use  +1  button. 

Sometimes you may wanna save a copy of your favourite web page. But you don't need to do so if you use +1. If you see a  +1  button in that web page then just give a  +1  and you will find this page in your Google + profile at the  +1  list!

Turn off Your Monitor by Double Click!

Often we need to download a large file from internet and remain our system on without using it. In that case a person don't need to use the monitor at all. 

Sometimes we need to turn on or off the monitor again and again. And certainly this detrimental both for the power button of the monitor and for monitor itself. As a result some people don't turn off the monitor. 

But all of us know that CRT monitor consumes a huge amount of power. 

If you need to turn on and off your monitor again and again then don't do it with power button. There is a better option available for you. You can turn off your monitor just by a small .exe file (22 KB)

Download this zipped file from here

After downloading the file you need to extract it. Now keep the file in place you think handy. You can place it in the desktop. Or if you use Windows or 8 then right click on this file and select pin to task bar. 

If the file placed in desktop then you can turn off monitor by Double Click. But if it is placed in task bar then you can do it only by a single click!! 

Audio, Video & Text Chat by Google Talk

People of current world heavily depend on internet chatting both for communication and entertainment purpose. There are millions of people always chatting around the world. And thousands of chatting software are also serving them. 

Probably most of the users use Facebook chat to talk with friends. And there are lots of other services available. Such as Yahoo Messenger, Skype, MSN, ooVoo, Pidgin, Nimbuzz and so many. 

But today I am gonna talk about Google Talk (Gtalk) - this is my personal choice. 

This is a very light and fast instant messaging software. Its size is only 1.5 MB. You can both perform audio and text chat. And if you wanna make a video call from it then you have install an additional plugin for it.  

Within a small size program you will find all the necessary options you may need. You can set you status, status message, change font and font size, colors, set image, block irritating persons etc. 

You can also send files by Google Talk to your friends. To whom you wanna send any file must be online. Offline friends can't be sent files. The procedure to send file is shown below with image:

Click here to download Google Talk. 

Note: You can also use Gtalk without installing it! Just use your Gmail Account with standard look. Then you will find it in the left panel. 

Hangouts Replaces Talk: 

This is an update to this post. Google talk is no longer available in Google's website. But you can still download this from filehippo or other download site. Though you can still use Google talk in your PC but Hangouts has more features. But as a lightweight program, Google Talk is better. 

I've also a back up copy of Google Talk. You can download it from the link below: 

Activate Windows 8 Preview by Windows Update!

Microsoft declared that Windows 8 Developer Preview will be expired on March 11, 2012. And when it will expire, the computers with Windows 8 Developer Preview installed will restart every 2 hours!

So there are two options available for users. They can either download Windows 8 Consumer Preview or they can use their previous windows instead of Windows 8.

But there is another options available for Windows 8 users! Ya I am talking about activating it. There are lots of options available for activation. Some of them are valid some are invalid. Some are working and some are non working. 

But, do you know that you can easily validate your developer preview version in a legal way. Microsoft released an update for windows 8 a few days ago. This update is very small. 

Activation Method: 
  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Go to the Windows Update
  3. Click on available updates link
  4. Now search for an update named Update for Windows 8 Developer Preview (KB2671501)
  5. And install it.
If you have any difficulty to find it then install all updates. Your windows will be activated automatically after restarting your PC. 

If you wanna make sure that your windows is activated then make a right click on Computer and click on View details in Windows Activation. And you will see the following window:

Use Snipping Tool to Take Screenshot!

If you're using Windows 7 or Windows 8 Preview then you've snipping tool provided with the windows. You can use Snipping Tool to take a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then you can make little change, mark, save and email it to someone. 

You can capture the following types of snips:

  • Free-form Snip:  Draw a free-form shape around an object.
  • Rectangular Snip:  Drag the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.
  • Window Snip:  This option will allow you to capture the the full window. 
  • Full-screen Snip:  This will allow you to capture the entire screen. 

You will find the snip tool in the program list. Go to the start menu and type snip. Then it will appear in the list. 

You can also make a handy shortcut of it. Just right click on the snipping tool and select Pin to Taskbar. 

Funny Trick: If you need to reduce the size of a large image then you can just take the screenshot of that image. For example if your image is 3 or 4 MB in size, you can reduce it to 40 to 50 KB by taking a screen shot using snipping tool.  

Common File Types with Extensions

Each and every file has an extension. A file extension or a file name extension is the suffix at the end of a file name that indicates what kind of file it is. For example, a JPEG image file has an extension like .jpg. Similarly, you can identify a file as text file if it has an extension like .txt.

If you don't see an extension after the file name then you should turn on a setting. Just double click on My Computer then go to the Folder options. Now click on the View tab. After 8 or 9 options you will find an option named hide extensions for known file types. Just turn it off. And from now you will be able to see the file extensions of any files.

Some of the common file types with extensions are as below:
