The Timeline is one of the most useful features added in recent versions of Windows 10. It offers an excellent way to continue your work from one device and onto another. However, one of the main flaws of the Timeline was that, up until now, it was not able to work with Google Chrome. Which meant that you could pick up your web activities from where you left off, only if you used Microsoft Edge. That is no longer the case, as Microsoft released an extension for Google Chrome that makes it compatible with the Timeline.
We all encountered files with uncommon extensions, from time to time. Of course many of us know about .docx files, .pdf files, .mp3 files or .iso files. However, have you heard about the .eps file extension? How about .dng? What do you do if you have to open such files?

If you want to download a specific version of Chrome, read this tutorial:

To help you in such a situation, Windows 10 has come up with a solution: offline maps.
One of the changes often performed in Windows is to customize the way File Explorer displays files. We show you how to make these changes once, and make sure they re-apply automatically for all the other folders that contain the same type of files.
