  How to Encrypt a USB Flash Drive or SD Card with Windows 10
Posted by: tarekma7 - 01-01-2016 , 10:18 PM - Forum: Guides, Tips & Tricks - No Replies

Flash drives and SD cards are a convenient tool for transferring data. However, with the convenience and portability, comes a security risk. That’s where encryption becomes valuable, and BitLocker in Windows 10 makes it easy to do. Plus, Windows 10 version 1151 comes with a new and improved
encryption algorithm.

Quote: The BitLocker encryption tool is only available in Windows 10 Pro and not the Home version.

Encrypt External USB Flash Drive Windows 10
Plug in your flash drive (you can do this with an SD card, too) and wait while Windows recognizes it. If AutoPlay comes up, select Open folder to view files.
From the Ribbon select the drive you want to encrypt. Then from the Ribbon click the Manage tab then BitLocker > Turn on BitLocker.

Alternately, you can open This PC, right-click the drive, and select Turn on BitLocker
 
[Image: u93b8WZ.png]

Whichever way you do it, the BitLocker wizard starts up. Check Use a password to unlock the drive and type in a password twice.

[Image: 7LaI2ip.png]

Next you’ll be prompted to back up a recovery key that is a string of characters that will let you access the drive in case you lose the encryption password.
I recommend saving the recovery key to a file or printing it out and storing it in a secure location rather than having it in the cloud.

Now choose how much of the drive to encrypt. You can select only the used space or the entire drive.

New Encryption Mode
BitLocker in Windows 10 version 1511 (November Update) now includes the 256-bit XTS-AES encryption mode that provides additional integrity support with the improved algorithm.
However, it’s not available on older versions of Windows.
You’ll need to choose which method to use. So, if you only plan on using this drive on the PC you’re encrypting it on; you’ll probably want to use the new encryption mode.
But if you need to use the drive on other PCs that have older versions of Windows (which is probably the case with a flash drive or SD card), select Compatible Mode,
which uses the previous 128-bit AES.

[Image: P3zVtej.png]

Now you’re ready to start encrypting the drive.

[Image: kIRjtXc.png]

The amount of time it takes to complete will vary depending on your system specs, the amount of data, and the size of the drive.

[Image: ByfhzLt.png]

Now when you plug in the encrypted drive, you’ll be prompted to enter the password you created for it. You can also choose more options and have the drive automatically unlock on this PC or enter the recovery key if you forgot the password.

You’ll know if a drive is encrypted when you open This PC by the lock symbol.

  Windows 10: The best hidden features, tips, and tricks
Posted by: tarekma7 - 01-01-2016 , 08:14 PM - Forum: Guides, Tips & Tricks - Replies (3)

Now that Windows 10 is out and millions of people are already running it, let’s take a look at some of the best hidden features, tips, and tricks in the operating system. If you’re still on the fence, take note: You really do want Windows 10, despite a lot of the gripes we’ve shared over the past several months. It’s worth getting on the list for (or downloading the Windows 10 ISO directly). It combines the best of Windows 8 — super-fast startup, improved security — with much of what made Windows 7 familiar and easy to use, and without trying to force you to buy a touch screen or learn a whole set of hidden UI gestures.

And if you’re a computer nut like me, tweaking the OS is always the fun part. Discovering and implementing power user tips are my favorite part of getting a major new version of an OS. I still remember back when DOS 5.0 came out, and I was running DOS 3.3, and I got to try all these new things to optimize my 286. And when I upgraded from Windows/286 to Windows 3.0, I felt like my life had changed. (We’ve come a long way.) Nostalgia aside, here’s what you need to know to amp up your Windows 10 install and take it to the next level.
GodMode Windows 10

[Image: PrGJx6j.png]

Set up GodMode:

The awesomely named GodMode brings up a special menu that puts lots of settings together in one place. To enable it, create a new folder anywhere on your root drive and rename it GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. It will create a special icon that when you click on it shows you a beautiful advanced control panel.

[Image: oGX8yxn.jpg]

Task view and virtual desktops:

One of the best things about Windows 10 is how it handles virtual desktops. The fact that it finally handles them at all, out of the box, is a great step, since Mac OS X and Linux users have had that capability for a long time. It lets you set up a series of tasks and windows on your desktop, your email and Twitter window on another, and a third for general Web browsing and research. To get started, click the Task View icon on the taskbar (immediately to the right of the Search box), or hold down the Windows key (abbreviated throughout as Win) and Tab. You can also drag an app to a new virtual desktop by bringing it over to the +New Desktop option at the lower right. (Click to read more on Task View and Virtual Desktops.)

Configure privacy settings:

When you’re first setting up Windows 10, make sure to select a Custom install so you can modify the privacy settings, instead of going with the Express install. (If you already installed it, no worries; you can fix it all in Settings). Otherwise you’ll find yourself agreeing to all sorts of private data sharing — and while Windows 10 is free for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, it’s not a free product in and of itself — so there’s no reason to share your personal information when it’s not required.

Make the desktop more stylish:

Windows 10 lets you personalize your desktop more thoroughly than before. Head to Start > Settings > Personalization > Colors, and choose Show color on taskbar and Start Menu. You can also tell it to automatically pick a color from your wallpaper and apply it underneath icons of open apps, and you can remove the Start Menu’s translucent option.

Print to PDF:

You can finally print a document (or rather, save it) as PDF without using a third-party utility. This makes it much easier to save and distribute documents that aren’t easily modified. Another long overdue feature makes it in under the radar.

Make sure WiFi Sense is off:

You may feel differently about this, but I certainly don’t like the idea of allowing access to my WiFi network unless I specifically give out the password. Here’s how to make sure your computer isn’t doing that — and if it is, how to turn it off.

Schedule Windows updates:

Instead of getting ambushed whenever Microsoft decides to push out a patch, you can schedule restarts to install updates by going to Start > Settings > Updates and Recovery > Windows Update. You can do this for future updates as well by selecting Notify to Schedule Restart.

Run it in a virtual machine:

If you’re thinking of taking the Windows 10 plunge, but don’t want to disturb your machine that’s currently running just fine, here’s how to install Windows 10 in a virtual machine first. Note that this is different than the virtual desktops I mentioned above; it’s virtualizing the entire OS within another OS (your existing one).

[Image: kClIcma.png]


Windows Explorer Home tab and Quick Access:

Windows Explorer windows are a lot more useful this time around, thanks to a new Home tab (pictured above). It makes file copies a cinch. If you look at the top left of the window, you’ll see a new Quick Access group that lets you navigate to recently accessed folders. That makes it much easier to maintain a fast workflow as you navigate around your computer’s file system. And while File Explorer defaults to the Quick Access view, if you don’t like it, you can set it back to This PC by choosing View > Options > Open File Explorer > This PC.

[Image: S7EsL5r.jpg]

Customize the Start Menu:

The new Start Menu is such a huge improvement over what came with Windows 8.1 that it’s almost impossible to describe the relief. It combines the best elements of Windows 7 and Windows 8. And it’s also fully customizable. You can resize tiles in the Start menu by right-clicking them and choosing Resize, and then selecting a size from the pop-up menu. You can also unpin them or uninstall them completely. I admit the first thing I did is unpin all of Microsoft’s tiles and then shrink the size of the menu so it looks a lot like Windows 7 (pictured).

For a while, during some of the Windows 10 Technical Preview builds, you could pin the Recycle Bin to the taskbar, which makes it a bit more like OS X. Unfortunately, that functionality seems to be gone in the release version, though you can still pin it to the Start Menu as a tile.

Command prompt tweaks:

A lot of Windows 10 utilities underneath the service still look the same as they did in Windows 7 and Windows 8. But one of the hidden tweaks is in the Command Prompt — head over to Properties and you’ll suddenly find you can enable a host of customizations, including a transparent background, resizing the window, and word wrap.

Battery saver

If you’re on a laptop and your battery is running low, Windows 10 is smart enough to begin throttling back background services and other threads so that you can squeeze the last bit of battery life out of your machine. To enable Battery Saver, click the Start menu, and head to Settings | System | Battery Saver.

Background scrolling

Ever notice how when you hover your mouse cursor over a window and try and scroll, you still can’t, because the window wasn’t active? Turn this feature on in Settings | Devices | Mouse and Touchpad and you’ll be able to do just that.
Keyboard shortcuts

Here are some keyboard shortcuts you may want to be aware of — ones that will really help your daily workflow:
•Windows Key-Tab (Task View)
•Windows Key-Right-Up (Moves app to top right quadrant)
•Windows Key-Ctrl-Left or Right (virtual desktop)
•Windows Key-Ctrl-D (new virtual desktop)
•Windows Key-Ctrl-C (Cortana listening)
•Windows Key-S (Daily Glance for weather, news, sports)
•Windows Key-Ctrl-F4 (closes virtual desktop)
•Windows Key-Up and Down (snap apps to top or bottom of screen or maximizes)OneDrive

OneDrive integration:

[Image: gtDqsoc.png]

Free cloud storage is a godsend these days, and Microsoft makes it super easy in Windows 10 with OneDrive. You can use it to store files for mobile device access from iOS or Android, and you can even set it to let you access any file on your PC remotely — not just the ones you drag over to your OneDrive folder.

Amp up Cortana:

If you’ve got a laptop, or a desktop with a microphone attached, click the search field and select the Notebook icon on the left. Then click Settings and click “Let Cortana respond to “Hey Cortana.” Now Cortana will listen for your commands. Cortana can also use Google instead of Bing, even though Microsoft really wants you to use the latter. Install the Chrometana extension in Chrome, or just install Firefox and make that your default browser; both will accomplish the task of removing Bing from Cortana’s brain.

Use Maps offline:

The new Maps app lets you work offline (Remember those old Microsoft Maps programs?); click Settings > Download or Update Maps, and then select the continent and country you want.

Xbox Streaming:

Windows 10 finally shows some real Xbox integration, and you can use it to log into your Xbox Live account. But more importantly, you can use it to stream Xbox One games locally on your PC. You’ll have to enable it first on the Xbox One under Settings | Preferences | Allow game streaming, and then on the PC in the Xbox application. (Interestingly, Microsoft is also going the other way and adding keyboard and mouse support to the Xbox One — not that you’ll need that, since you’ve already got a PC.)

[Image: q8HUjIq.png]

Record games and app videos:

You can now record videos of apps or games using the Game DVR function. Press the Windows Key + G, click ‘Yes, this is a game box,’ and then you’ll see options to manipulate the recording.

Find the original Control Panel (and other goodies):

The new Settings panel is easy to navigate and makes more sense than the crufty old Control Panel, but you’ll still need the latter to access some deeper options in the system. It’s easy to call up, even though it’s hidden; just right click on the Start button on the bottom left of the screen and choose it from the pop-up menu, or type Control Panel in the Search bar at the bottom left in the taskbar. When you right-click the Start button, you’ll see all kinds of useful things there, such as Computer Management and Disk Management; for what it’s worth, those options bring you right back to the familiar Windows 7-style apps in each case.

Tone down Notifications:

Notifications are a giant pain in Windows 10; there’s just too many of them, and some are unnecessary. Turn ’em off by heading to Start > Settings > System > Notifications and actions, and turn off Windows tips and specific app notifications (you’ll need to scroll down for the latter).

Nix the Office ads:

Are you sick of the occasional Office ads that pop up on the desktop? So are we. To kill them, right-click on Get Office in the Start Menu and uninstall it.

  New Winamp in Early 2016
Posted by: tarekma7 - 12-31-2015 , 01:02 PM - Forum: General Computer Chat - Replies (4)

[Image: A2XJlVi.png]

A former Winamp employee revealed on the official Winamp forum that a new version of the popular music player will be released in early 2016.
 
It looked like Winamp would be a thing of the past in 2013 when AOL announced that it would shut down the service. The company changed its mind
shortly thereafter, and sold all Winamp assets -- including the popular Shoutcast platform -- to Radionomy.
 
The new owner of Winamp promised to step up the game and produce new versions of the client, but failed to do so.
 
In the now almost two years that followed, no new version of Winamp had been created and the only thing that happened was that the frontpage of the
website was redesigned promising that "more is coming soon" and "the best is yet to come".
 
In December 2015 came the announcement that Vivendi bought a majority share of Radionomy. It is too early to tell how this will affect Winamp development and things may go either way.

A former Winamp employee revealed on the official forum why Radionomy failed to produce new versions of the client:

Quote: There hasn't been a development team. Although Radionomy certainly had goals and ambitions to release an updated version of Winamp, they have not had the resources to afford to do so.
There will be a small release some time in early 2016. There will not be any new features; this release will be just be a small update to replace or remove software libraries that were not transferred during the sale (such as Gracenote).

According to Ben Allison, Radionomy had plans for Winamp but not the resources to put them into action.

He mentioned that Radionomy plans to release a new version of Winamp in 2016 but that it will be the same version more or less sans commercial software libraries used in Winamp that Radionomy has no rights for.

Existing users should not have any incentive to update their versions to the new release if true. It is interesting to note that Winamp works fine after all these years of neglect and that that's unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.

Winamp enthusiasts should not get their hopes up that the Vivendi deal will change things to the better, as it is unlikely that the software program is a high priority for the company.

Even if Winamp development would get the requirement resources, it would be difficult for the program to get new traction in the desktop music player market thanks to a rising number of excellent alternatives such as AIMP or Foobar.

Now You: Do you think Winamp will make a comeback?

paint.NET


Quote:[Image: Pj3qYkj.pnghttp:]

Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for PCs that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins.

[Image: aSNiHJf.jpghttp:]

It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the Microsoft Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple image and photo editor tool.

[Image: DRBRYK7.pnghttp:]

Paint.NET is an alternative way of processing digital photos. Simple yet very versatile in terms of features and function, application users are enabled to access standard editing tools and have the freedom to explore and reinvent photos.

[Image: oxnp1UA.jpghttp:]

Like other commercial image editing software, Paint.NET can handle layers, apply filters and effects individually. Users can also make vector images and choose colors through a comprehensive color palette. It is a simple yet effective software for digital photo processing that actually works like a charm.

[Image: dT31OB3.jpghttp:]

Key Features Include:
- Special effects tools include: blurring, sharpening, red-eye removal, distortion, noise and embossing.
- 3D Rotate/Zoom effects make it very easy to add perspective and tilting.
- Image manipulation tools include: brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, curves, and levels. You can also convert an image to black and white, or sepia.

Language Support:

English, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Russian, and Spanish.

System Requirements:
1. Minimum System
- Windows 7 SP1 or newer (including Windows 8, 8.1, and 10)
- 1GHz processor (dual-core recommended)
- 1GB of RAM

2. Paint.NET depends on Microsoft's .NET Framework 4.5, which is automatically installed if it isn't already on the system.

3. Paint.NET will automatically run in 64-bit mode if possible. You must have a 64-bit capable CPU and an x64 edition of Windows.

4. Paint.NET uses your hard drive to store temporary files related to undo/redo history. Because of this, actual disk space requirements will depend on the actions you perform on an image, and on the size of the image.

5. Paint.NET does not work on Windows RT.
