Use Notepad As Ur Diary.... Add Date And Time In notepad

This is really handy for people who use notepad to note their activities on a day to day basis. It gives a time stamp to the notepad file.

** Create a new notepad file with .LOG (in capitols) as the first line of the file, followed by a carriage (enter). Save it by any name.
** Double-click the file to open it and notice that Notepad appends the current date and time to the end of the file and places the cursor on the line after.
** Type your notes and then save and close the file.
Each time you open the file, Notepad repeats the process, appending the time and date to the end of the file and placing the cursor below it.
Hope it proves handy.

Use the Computer Without a Mouse or Keyboard [Windows tips]

HowToSetup: Use the Computer Without a Mouse or Keyboard [Windows tips]

It’s happening quite frequently to have a PC (or laptop) keyboard error. The most liable to "crash" and with the most expensive service, are laptop keyboards. If you can change your failing PC keyboard with a new one within few seconds, when speeking about a broken laptop keyboard it’s a more complicated issue. Involves higher costs and a "hospitalization" in a specialized service centre.
However, if we don’t have time or money to repair or change a keyboard, you should use Windows virtual keyboard. The only condition is to have a functional mouse or touch pad. :)

How to access Windows virtual keyboard – available for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

1. Open Start Menu and click Control Panel

3. In Control Panel click on Ease of Access

4. Enter Ease of Access Center

5. In the displayed window (don’t worry if your computer starts to speak with you :P) double-click on Start On-Screen Keyboard to open the virtual keyboard.


The virtual keyboard acts like a normal keyboard, the only difference is that you have to use your mouse/touch pad to type on it.


It may be a little uncomfortable for you to use the virtual keyboard, but, in the absence of a normal keyboard, it’s useful in such cases like editing an important document or talking to someone on IM etc., and it’s recommended when typing a password (avoiding any possible undercover keylogger :))

The Ease of Access Center has the option to use a virtual mouse too. This virtual mouse – or cursor - is very easy to move using the numeric keys on the right side of keyboard. For accessing this virtual mouse, click on Make the mouse easier to use, in Ease of Access Center.


To discover how you can use this feature click on Control the mouse with the keyboard.

CopyFaster - Copy & Paste Faster!

Are you getting the best performance out of your system? Let CopyFaster bring out the best in your hard drive!
CopyFaster is a software utility that enables Windows Explorer to copy big files faster when copying to and from the same hard drive.
CopyFaster is faster because:
• Less seeking - CopyFaster’s finer control over the copying process causes less time-consuming movement of the hard disk head. CopyFaster will try to read from the same section of the hard disk (where the head is positioned) multiple times before causing the head to move to another position (which is time consuming).
• Uncached file access - CopyFaster bypasses Windows 2000’s file cache which normally speeds up repeated access to the same file, but is less useful for big files. Bypassing the file cache prevents extra wasted memory-to-memory copying from occurring.

How to Connect Computer to TV

There are several ways to connect a computer to your television: S-Video, VGA, and DVI are a few of the older cables you can use. For the sake of this blog I will cover the newest and easiest - connecting via an HDMI cable.

But before I dive into this easy process, let’s discuss some of the benefits of transforming your TV into a monitor. The most obvious: you can save $$$ by dropping your cable provider and viewing all of your entertainment programming via the Internet. I personally will save $50-75 a month. There are free online sites that offer quality interactive entertainment, like the now famous Gaming is also a powerful excuse! My personal motivation is being a grad student taking online courses I wanted to have a great multimedia experience since I will spend several hours a week watching web lectures.

Ok now for the How To…

I started with my relatively new HP Pavilion 1231 tx and my relatively new RCA 40″ Full HD 1080p LCD HDTV. My HDTV has 3 different HDMI ports whereas my laptop has one. Make sure you check your laptop has this port! An HDMI port resembles a USB one - except it’s slightly wider and flatter. If your computer only has a DVI port you may be in luck because lots of HDTVs have HDMI/DVI combined ports. The process of hooking this up is pretty much the same, except you use an HDMI/DVI cable instead (I’m a GENIUS!).

I purchased a 6′ Sony HDMI cable for Rs-1950/- and a Logitech USB cable keyboard and mouse for Rs-2000/- (includes speakers too). So I have my cable and my wireless keyboard and mouse for only 80 bucks. If you’re a smart shopper you will find these items online and probably save 50% of what I spent, but I’m impatient and wanted to do this tonight. Of course these components are not required if you have a laptop and a long enough cable chord. But to me that defeats the purpose - I want to get away from my computer and pretend like I’m just interacting with my TV while a lightweight ‘remote’ rests on my lap (keyboard) and a pointer on my couch arm (mouse). The ultimate Captain Chair :).

Select output on your TV remote control and select which HDMI port you plan to use (1,2, or 3). Connect cable to TV and computer. Within a few minutes computer should automatically detect the cable and give you screen options. I chose the Mirror option because sometimes the wireless mouse gets stuck and so I have to walk over to my computer and use the touchpad instead. This way I have the mirror image on both screens if I want to use one over the other.

Then, if the computer doesn’t automatically output to your TV screen select FN+F8 or FN+F11. FN+F8 worked for me.

Next you may need to experiment with your TV screen format. I had to use the “No Overscan” format view because it’s the only setting that displays the complete screen; others truncate the top and bottom. You may also need to experiment with the screen resolution on your computer.

Finally if you do decide to use a wireless keyboard, you’ll want to encrypt your key strokes. You can do this by installing the software that came with your hardware. After installation, the settings should provide a security option that takes you through a series of steps to make sure no one else can record or monitor your strokes. Once you complete this wizard you should be good to go.

The only performance issue I found was with the cheap keyboard and mouse. Sometimes the computer doesn’t detect their signals. I have to be within 6-8 feet of my computer for these devices to work correctly. Umm… with a 40″ screen you really don’t want to be that close! I even had to scoot my couch up a foot to prevent keystroke delays and stubborn mousing. It’s pretty frustrating actually, so I will most likely invest in more complimentary components and I would advise others to do the same

How to Burn a Data CD or Data DVD in Windows 7 Using Media Player?

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs.


When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.

As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same.

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:

Click Start.

Click All Programs.

Select Windows Media Player.

Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.

Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.

Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.

Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.

Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.

Look for the songs you want to burn.

In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.

You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.

To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.

After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.

It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc e.g. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.
