With an announcement on the Internet Explorer Facebook Page (https://www NULL.facebook NULL.com/internetexplorer), Microsoft has now released Internet Explorer 10 for those on Windows 7.
Lets start by saying out loud, “COMPUTERS AREN’T PERFECT, THEY BREAK”. Seriously you could get anything from a corrupt file, to a virus, to hardware issues (motherboard, power supply, hard drive could fail). If you are walking with a laptop or a tablet, you could trip, drop it and have it break (Seriously that happens everyday). Having a good and valid backup can save you, at a minimum, your time and a major headache. Sometimes things on a computer are just irreplaceable. I guess your going to have to take the entire family on vacation back to Florida (or insert the location of your last vacation here), or you will have to ask your son/daughter to recreate their 1st baby steps (which will be awkward if they are now teenagers).
There are many ways to back up a computer. Files can be manually transferred to a storage device such as an external hard drive, or uploaded to an online storage facility. Files can be backed up individually or as an entire system. Software for performing backups can be downloaded for free or a very low-cost, may be part of a software suite, or included with a hardware backup utility. The option that will work best for you will depend on your needs and the importance of your files.
It seems these days that every family has at least 1 smart phone or tablet. The problem starts when that device is going to be shared, especially with the younger kids. You don’t want to give your 5 yr. old (or any other age for that matter) your device so that they can play Angry Birds and suddenly discover that they are clicking in your settings or worse clicking through your documents. You don’t want to suddenly find that a file or document you downloaded on your tablet has suddenly disappeared. Unfortunately, neither iPad or Android tablets come with a way to set up multiple users by default. So what do you do? What do you do?
One of the issues that I’ve come across this week involves having to reinstall both the Windows operating system and Microsoft Office software on a pc without having the product key (serial number). How to recover your software product key when you don’t know it? In the case of the Windows OS, the sticker on the side of the pc was faded to the point you couldn’t make out what it says.
While the OS code was faded, I didn’t have the office code at all because the customer never put the sticker on the pc. So what is one to do? This is where ProduKey (http://nirsoft NULL.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer NULL.html) from Nirsoft (http://nirsoft NULL.net) comes in.
ProduKey is a small utility that displays the ProductID and the CD-Key of Microsoft Office (Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office 2010), Windows (Including Windows 7 and Windows Vista), Exchange Server, and SQL Server installed on your computer. You can view this information for your current running operating system, or for another operating system/computer – by using command-line options. This utility can be useful if you lost the product key of your Windows/Office, and you want to reinstall it on your computer.
So what is Holdkey?
In many languages the alphabet includes letters with characters (é à ø ü € ß ñ ï ç ö ę ğ among others) , unfortunately most keyboards these days do not usually include those letters and do not make it easy to add those letters to your writing.
Holdkey is a Windows Program that makes it easy to type characters with accents.
Ease of use
Holdkey works with virtually all Windows programs. Once you install Holdkey, all you need to do is hold down the key for the character you want an accent on for a second, and you will get a pop up box with your choices
at which point all you need to do is select the character accent you desire either by selecting the number next to the character or by clicking on the charter and it gets added to your typing.
Freeware or Premium
Holdkey works with XP, Vista, Windows 7, and comes in 2 options, Freeware and premium. For most people the Freeware version is all that they will need. The difference between the 2 versions is (from the site FAQ page)
I am using the freeware version of Holdkey, what is the catch ?
When you click the ‘more’ button when the Holdkey info bar is visible a browser window will open with more characters and symbols along with some ads, sponsored links and the option to donate. You can also upgrade to the Pro version.
