Changing Digit Grouping (Comma Style) in MS Excel - Million to Lakh

Well this is a very common problem for our sub-continent i.e. Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Maldives, Sri Lanka. Cause our digit grouping system doesn't match with the international system. To be more specific - they use million, billion etc. But we use - lakh (also lac), crore etc. 
Users of the mentioned regions often face problem with the comma separator position in MS Excel. Cause the default system is international. It doesn't suit our digit grouping system. 
International System - Separates every three digits 1,000.0010,000.00100,000.001,000,000.001,000,000,000.00
Subcontinental System - Separates every two digits after the 1st three digits
1,000.0010,000.00 1,00,000.001,00,00,000.001,00,00,00,000.00 
If you're familiar with the Indian Subcontinent system and if you're bound to use this system then it will be a big trouble if you don't know the solution. Well nothing to worry about as you are going through this article. Cause from the very next moment you'…

Add Google Custom Search to your Site

Search engines run the world. Internet world is useless without search engines. You may argue that Facebook is not a search engine. But it's a big search engine. Facebook needs to search appropriate person, place or group for you! When you need to find something, we usually search this either in Google, Bing or Yahoo. But a tiny blog or website should also have a search engine. 

Most of the websites and even blogs have a search option. It makes easier to find something in your site. And it could be also helpful for you to search something on your site. In Marks PC Solution, there are more than 300 posts so far. Being the author of the site, sometimes I forget what topics are published here! So how do visitors get something without search box?

Understanding HTML Colors

A single blog post can never provide you the sufficient knowledge on HTML colors. Thousands of words could be written about colors. But today, I'm just gonna share my little knowledge about HTML colors

All of you are familiar with the basic colors - Red, Green & Blue. In brief, this is known as RGB. What you see in the screen is nothing but the combination of these three colors. I mean Red, Green and Blue. 


There are 16 Million Different Colors!

The combination of Red, Green and Blue can produce more than 16 million colors! Each color has a value from 0 to 255. Couple of years ago I heard that human eyes can detect almost 17000 colors. And most of the modern monitors are capable of displaying more than 16000 colors. 


Color Names Supported by the Web Browsers

There are 140 color names defined by the HTML and CSS color specification which are supported by almost all web browsers. But only 17 of them are considered as standard colors. These are as follows:

Create New Volumes without Partition !!

Disk Management is a nice tool to manage your hard disk drives. With this tool, you can easily format, shrink and extend your existing volems. You can do some other tasks too. But today I'm gonna discuss about creating new volumes by splitting existing volumes. 

Background Story
Two weeks ago, one of my acquaintances got a new laptop. It comes with Windows 8, Intel Core i5 processor and 1 TB Hard disk. Not very extraordinary nowadays. But I was really surprised when heard there is only 1 partition in his laptop!! Can you believe it? One partition for a 1 TB hard disk! My goodness - this is a thousand GB partition! 
I know how to split a drive to create new partition. But didn't even try this earlier. After getting the case of 1000 GB partition, I tried to shrink a drive in my own PC. After successfully trying this on my PC, I advised him how to divide the one partition into several drives. By this time maybe he has fixed this. :)
