Checking Activation Status

  • For Windows, press Start + Pause key to open your system status. Then move to the bottom and check whether Windows is activated.
  • For Office, open an MS word document > File > Account > Product Information > Check the Status.

Hope everything will work fine. Still if you face any problem, just knock me . . .

To the users!

Our job is not to collapse Microsoft's business! If we do so, how do we find new tools from them? But they often act unfriendly. Charge too much price for new versions of Office and Windows. Sometimes original disks don't work multiple times. 

Even genuine buyers face troubles while activating the products. That's why I share these Key Managing tools (KMS) with the visitors.

Windows Photos is Capable of Editing Images!!

Edit Images by Windows 10 Photos App

In my last post, I've discussed about how to get back Photo Viewer in Windows 10. And in this post, I would like to talk about how to get most out of new Windows Photos App. Final version of Windows 10 is still new to the users. And I'm pretty sure most of users haven't tried the editing features of Photos. 

As a Photo viewer, the performance of Windows Photos is really poor. There are some problems remain with transparent PNG images. And it also have some navigation problems. But you can use this tool for editing images. As a image editor, Photos is not bad at all !! J 

Editing Features at a Glance . . .

1. Basic Fixes Includes - 
  • Photo Enhancement
  • Image Rotation
  • Crop
  • Straighten
  • Fix Red Eye
  • Retouch
2. Photo Filters

3. Light Corrections - 
  • Brightness
  • Contrast
  • Highlights
  • Shadows
4. Color - 
  • Temperature
  • Tint
  • Saturation
  • Color Boost
5. Effects -
  • Vignette
  • Selective Focus

Easy to use . . .

This app is not a difficult one to operate. A person with basic photo editing knowledge should be fine with this tool. Let me tell something - 

Windows 10 Photos Screenshot

  • Right click on an image and open it with Photos
  • In the toolbar, hit on the Pencil icon to access the editing tools
  • Use Basic Fixes to enhance your photo, fix red eye, crop the image etc. You can use retouch to make little correction.
  • Filters offers automatic filtering to your image.
  • Light enables you control brightness, contrast etc.
  • Color helps you change your environmental look through modifying temperature and saturation.
  • With the help of effects, you can highlight a portion of your image. 

After modifying the image, you can compare it with the original! Compare button will be available at tools menu. Or you can press Ctrl + /. Press Ctril ++ or Ctrl + - to increase and decrease the image size.

After making the necessary corrections, you can save the photo using Save as button.

Get Photo Viewer Back in Windows 10 !!

Get Photo Viewer back in Windows 10

Microsoft is playing with the users. They've made so many stupid changes that puzzled the Windows 10 users. By default, Windows 10 users are not allowed to use Windows Photo Viewer. Instead, we're forced to use a new app called - Photos! Though it provides a number of options for image editing, as a viewer, it's not good at all.

The most funny thing is that, Microsoft hasn't removed the Windows Photo Viewer at all. It's just disabled. By adding a small registry file, you can easily re-enable it! My question is - what is the logic behind hiding it? What's the benefit of Microsoft??

Enable Windows Photo Viewer
  1. Download the Registry Key from here. It's only 3 KB!
  2. Unzip it.
  3. Double click on the file WPV.reg and hit Yes > Yes > OK.
  4. You're done and Good to go!

Open Photos/ Images through Photo Viewer

  1. Right click on any image.
  2. Open with > Choose another app
  3. Click on More apps to see the full app list
  4. Select Windows Photo Viewer
  5. Mark the option - Always use this app
  6. Hit OK.

Windows 10 Open With App List

In the above example, you can see only .JPG files to be viewed through Photo Viewer. But you can run the same operation for PNG, GIF or any other image format. Then those pictures will also be displayed via Windows Photo Viewer. 

The Registry File

The registry file I'm sharing is - 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

If you don't like to download the registry file, then - 

  1. Right click on your desktop
  2. New > Text Document
  3. Copy the above script as it is and paste it in the newly created text document
  4. Save it with a new name  - WPV.reg
  5. Double click on the file > Hit Yes > Yes > OK. That's it! 

Hope this will work great for you. Still if you face any problem, please knock me . . .

Built in PDF Printer in Windows 10 !!

Default PDF Creator of Windows 10

Windows 10 has come with some new features. One of them is Built-in PDF printer - Microsoft Print to PDF. From now, Windows 10 users don't need to use any third party PDF creator for converting their documents to PDF files! 

Applies to - Windows 10 Final Version only!

Those of you are still using earlier versions of Windows, I will recommend doPDF for you. It's a free as well as great tool for creating PDF documents from different applications. And you can also use doPDF in case when you think Windows Print to PDF doesn't work well for you. 

Using Windows Print to PDF

This application lets you print documents virtually. Using this application is almost similar to using doPDF. It has no visible interface available. You can only use this feature in the print option of any application. Such as - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Web Browsers, Photos even on Notepad. 

This feature will be available for any application which has a print option. Let's find out how - 

Built in PDF Creator in Windows 10

  1. Open any printable document (i.e. MS Word Document).
  2. Press Ctrl+P to view the print option.
  3. Look at the list of available printers.
  4. Choose - Microsoft Print to PDF.
  5. Choose Paper Size, Number of Copies, Orientation from Settings.
  6. Hit on the Print button.
  7. Type File Name > Choose your destination > Hit the Save button. That's it!

Hope this new tool will be of great use. If you need any kind of help, please knock me . . .

Microsoft is Getting Crazy!

I'm fed up with Microsoft! They've just made some wrong changes for last few versions of Windows. I can point them out - 

  • Removing .Net Framework 3.5 
  • Removing My Computer Icon from Desktop
  • Disabling Automatic Update Control settings
  • Removing date calculation option from Calculator
  • Removing Windows Update from Control Panel
  • Poor Start Menu (Windows 8 Start Menu was better)
  • Overall difficult settings - absolutely absurd!

They've also decided not to release any more new version of Windows OS! So, we're not getting any better version soon . . .

Disable Windows 10 Automatic Update (All Editions)

Turn off Windows 10 Auto Update

Though Windows 10 Pro users can easily disable Automatic Update, Home users can't! Because they don't have Group Policy Editor. And Registry Settings for turning off auto update doesn't work too. In this situation, if you're a home user then you can stop automatic update through Services. 

At the end of last year, I've published another post on disabling Windows 10 Auto Update. But it doesn't work with Windows Home edition. If you're using Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise edition, then follow the link below - 

Disable Automatic Update through Group Policy Editor . . .

Windows 8 Service List

Turn off Automatic Update (Specially For Home Users)

  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Open Administrative Tools.
  3. Click twice on Services
  4. Lots of services will be there. Press W > Scroll down and find Windows Update. (Or Press Start + R > Type services.msc > Press Enter > Find Windows Update)
  5. Double click on it to open Windows Update Properties.
  6. Make sure you're on the General tab.
  7. Choose Startup type Disabled. If you'd like to update manually, then choose Manual
  8. Now look at the Service status. If it's running, stop it. 
  9. Finally, hit on the Apply > OK.
