The Run command window allows you to launch programs, open files and folders, and access internet resources in Windows. Just type a path or a quick command into the Windows Run box, and then click OK or press Enter to use a Run command. Although the Run shortcut is not as easy to find in recent Windows versions, the tool still exists, and there are plenty of ways to access it. This tutorial illustrates how to open Run in Windows 10 and Windows 7:
Have you ever felt that your shared files are vulnerable and want to keep an eye on who is accessing them, but didn't know how? Well, we have two solutions for that: one that uses a tool that's built into Windows, and another one from a third party developer, that's called NetShareMonitor. Both are useful apps that can tell you almost everything that's going on in Windows with the files and folders you shared with other users within your local network. Let's get started:
Every time you receive a notification from an Android app, you see the name and icon of the app and a preview of its contents. When it comes to messages, you also see who sent you the message, and at least part of it can be read and understood with ease. For example, you see the name of the people sending you messages on WhatsApp, Messenger, Messages, and other apps, as well as a preview of their content. Some of that content may be important for your privacy, and you might not want people around you to see it.
Sharing the internet data connection available on your mobile smartphone with your Windows PC through a USB cable is called USB tethering. In other words, if you're wondering "what is USB tethering?", the answer is quite simple: it's a way of using your Android smartphone as a modem or router to get mobile internet via USB on any PC. Say you have access to a Wi-Fi network in your home but your desktop PC doesn't have a wireless card in it. You might want to use your Android's USB tethering feature to establish a connection between them.
There are several reasons why the Windows 10 Search bar could be missing. It might be a bug from the latest Windows 10 update (again!) or some setting that's hiding the Search box. No matter the reason, if you follow these steps, you should be able to access the Search bar and return it to its rightful place on the taskbar, next to the Start button. In this tutorial, we cover the most likely culprits to help you bring back the missing Windows 10 Search bar:
Have you heard about screensavers? Do you know what they are and what their purpose is? Why do we call them screensavers after all? Do they save our screens? We have done a bit of research and found out that, although popular more than a decade ago, due to changes in monitor technology, the term screen saver has become a misnomer in recent years. Let's see why that happened and also why you might still want to use a screensaver:
OneDrive is one of the best cloud storage services in the world, but that does not necessarily mean that everyone likes it. If you have it on your Windows computer, but you don't want it, you might be searching for a way to remove OneDrive. Maybe you want to do that because you prefer other cloud services (and apps) such as Google Drive or Dropbox. Or perhaps you don't use cloud storage at all.
Windows 10 has a Dark Mode. The feature is not new, and it has been improved over time. Today it looks and works better than it did when it was first launched, back in 2016. When enabled, Dark Mode changes the appearance of the Windows 10 interface from white to black. That can be useful in low-light conditions, like when working at night, and it can be equally great for users who prefer black instead of white. Here is how to get Dark Mode in Windows 10, how to turn on Dark Mode, and how to disable it to get back to normal:
Sending photos from an iPhone to an Android smartphone or tablet was not an easy task a few years ago. Fortunately, things have changed for the better, although no thanks to Apple, but rather because Google, Microsoft, and other companies offer us easy ways to transfer photos from iPhones to Android devices. Here are the most straightforward methods we know:
Ransomware is one of the most dangerous forms of malware. It takes control of your files and folders and forces you to pay large amounts of money to get them back. And even then, you cannot be sure that you can get your data back. Microsoft noticed how dangerous these attacks are for their users, and decided to take measures: in Windows 10, the Microsoft Defender Antivirus includes a feature called "Controlled folder access" explicitly designed to protect users against ransomware attacks.
