Boost Your PC Speed by Using SSD

In short you can explain an SSD (Solid State Drive) as modern HDD (Hard Disk Drive). What's the difference then? Maybe the functions are almost same but there are some big differences between the two. Go through the post to clear the concept . . .

What's an SSD A solid state drive or SSD is a storage device that uses non volatile flash memory along with necessary controller and chipset to store the data. It's somewhat like RAM, but unlike RAM it can store data for a long period of time. 
An SSD drive is considered to be more durable and stable in that sense - There is no moving parts i.e. platters, spindle, R/W head etc. which are available in traditional HDD.  

Advantages of SSD over HDD If you use SSD as your primary boot device instead of HDD then you may get the following advantages -  Faster performanceLower power consumptionBetter vibration resistanceLower heat No noiseIn short we can say, SSD is more durable and stable than traditional HDD. 

After installing SSD, you will…

How to Disable or Enable Autoplay?

By default, when you insert any removable media (ie. Flash Drive, CD etc.) on your PC, windows will automatically open the drive. Or it may play media or start program contained by that drive. If you're good to go with this Autoplay Policy, then it's okay. But if your PC is vulnerable to virus, then you must turn off Autoplay. 

There are different methods for different versions of Windows which you can use to turn off Autoplay. But I'm gonna show you a universal method which applies to all running versions of Windows. 


Enable/ Disable Autoplay - Universal Method
Applies to: Windows 2000/ XPWindows Vista/ 7Windows 8/ 8.1

HP LaserJet Pro M1132 MFP - Print, Scan, Copy!!!

If you would like to buy a laser printer, I will recommend you to purchase HP LaserJet Pro M1132 MFP. With this device, you can print and scan your necessary documents. You can also use this device as Mini Copier! I mean, you can use this device to copy documents without connecting it to a PC - this is really cool!


Background Story
More than 2 years ago, I purchased a color printer costing $ 60 - Epson T13. It was running smoothly. But it was unused for few weeks. Consequently, the printer head was damaged. Then I repaired it costing $ 50. Couple of weeks ago, it was damaged again. Then I've decided - no more InkJet printing! 

When I went to my dealer for buying a duplex printer and scanner, he advised me to purchase HP multifunctional printer. 

Since this device has both copy and scan facilities, I haven't purchased the duplex printer. Yesterday, I purchased HP LaserJet Pro M1132 MFP costing more than $150.

Optimize Images for Web by Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a widely accepted tool for working with photos and images. For better printing and viewing experience we save images with high quality and resolution. And it makes the image large in size. If you use heavy images in website, blog or social networking sites, that causes the site to load slower. But you can easily optimize the images before uploading without sacrificing quality!


Today I'm gonna write about the Save for Web option of Photoshop. With this saving option, you can optimize your images. You can also reduce the size of those images which are unnecessarily large. 

And definitely optimized images will save internet bandwidth as well as time. And if you're a site owner, you must practice using optimized images on your site. If your site loads faster, you will get more traffic. And always keep in mind - slower sites are always boring for the users and thus they can't retain visitors.

Using Curve Tool in MS Word

Most of you may think that MS Word has no free drawing tool like Photoshop or Illustrator. But you're wrong! Word has also a free drawing tool named curve which you can use just like Photoshop Pencil Tool. With curve tool, you can draw shapes freely. 

Applies to: Word 2007Word 2010Word 2013

Where do I find Curve Tool?
In fact, Word doesn't consider curve as a tool. Though it's a drawing tool, Word names it as a shape. You will find the curve in the Shapes. 





Insert Tab > Illustration Section > Shapes > Curve . 


How to Use it?
It's very handy to use the curve tool. To use the tool, run MS Word. Then choose curve from the shapes.  After choosing the curve tool, click anywhere of your document to start drawing.Move your mouse to the left, right or top from the starting point. Click left mouse button where you wanna turn around. If you would like to stop drawing and keep the shape open, simply click twice.If you wanna keep the shape close, simply click on the starting poin…

HDDB - Real Time Search Tool for your PC!!

Do you ever rely on Windows Search to find files/ folders. To be honest - I don't! The search capacity of Windows XP is poor. Windows 7 users might have a better experience. But it's really difficult to find something on Windows 8. Because your drives are not automatically indexed by Windows 8! 


More than 2 years ago (March 27, 2012), I discussed about Everything Search - a third party search tool for Windows. This tool is awesome to find something on your PC. 

Next year (February 15, 2013), I wrote about how to index drives to search files faster in Windows 8

And today (Ocrober 7, 2014), I'm gonna share another search tool with you. It's HDDB - Hard Disk DataBase. It's almost similar to Everything Search except few changes.

Print Screen Button Tips

Each and every computer users are familiar with the Print Screen Button. Most of you know, you can take a picture of your screen through Print Screen button. In your Keyboard, you may notice the button as this name - Prt Sc/SysRq

Do you know what is SysRq? It's an acronym for System Requirement which is a command used by Linux Kernel. To be honest, I know nothing about the use of SysRq. And in a Windows PC, this button has no standard use. 

Using the Print Screen Button Smartly
Almost all of you can use the Print Screen button. But how many of you can use this button smartly? Not many people! :)

Print Screen
If you press this button, the picture of your screen will be sent to clipboard. Then you can paste the image in a program that allows you to paste images. Such as - Paint, Photoshop, MS Word etc. 
Example - I pressed the Print Screen button and paste the image in Photoshop. Now you can see the picture of the whole screen including task bar.

Let's Try Windows 10 !!!

Hello Guys! You should remember, couple of weeks ago I wrote - Windows 9 Preview is on the way. Yes, everything is okay except the name. Microsoft has skipped Windows 9! On 1st October, Windows 10 Technical Preview has been released by Microsoft. And this version of Windows will work with all devices!

I was trying to write about what's new in Windows 10. I also downloaded an ISO copy of Windows 10 from a torrent site. But unfortunately, when I was installing it from my flash drive, the installation stopped at 46%! :(

It's very natural and common problem. Because I couldn't download the file at a time. The download was interrupted several times. And one of the files was missing. 


Windows 10 Technical Preview Serial Key
If you're supposed to enter a serial key, then use the following -
