Fonts are often underrated: although they can completely overhaul the way your documents, presentations, or websites look, many people don’t consider them important. However, looks usually have a big impact, sometimes even more than your content, regardless of whether you like it or not. The good thing about internet is that you can get nearly anything you want for free or at an affordable price. That’s also true for fonts, as there are many websites that offer great fonts for free. However, many such websites are hard to navigate, or worse, the fonts they distribute are filled with adware or malware. That’s why we thought it would b e a great idea if we researched most of the websites that offer fonts for free and highlight only those that are safe and clean from viruses or other things you wouldn’t want on your Windows computer or device.

We are all used to the old and familiar desktop shortcuts on our Windows computers. But in Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and in Windows 8.1, we also have a new way of launching and organizing things, using a concept called tiles. What are they, what do they do, what’s the difference between tiles and classic desktop shortcuts? Do you want to know how to customize these tiles?

Building on the paradigm first introduced in Windows 8, both the Start Menu from Windows 10 and the Start screen from Windows 10 Mobile, rely on using tiles to make it easy for us to access apps. Live tiles are also a very good means for offering quick bits of information from the apps that we are using. By default, the Start Menu from Windows shows tiles in groups that are as wide as 3 medium sized tiles. But, if you want more tiles, you can resize tiles groups to fit 4 medium sized tile columns.
