Today’s Geek Squeaks – August 30, 2013

August 30, 2013

A summary of Today’s Geek Squeaks:

Squeak #1: MGM… If you are into Windows, I am sure you have heard of God Mode, which is the name given to a special folder in Windows where numerous system settings can be accessed and tweaked. Featured today is MyGodMode, which is an application developed to get you to those settings with minimal hassle (see below);

Squeak #2: Did you ever forget a password to an account, but you could still access your account in your browser, because the browser was storing the password. The problem is once the browser’s cache, that stores the password, is cleared you will lose access to your account. If you need to retrieve the password, before this cache is cleared, I am featuring a neat little utility that will let you see what is behind those asterisks or dots in the password box (see below);

Squeak #3: One of my favorite sites, Addictive Tips, recently featured a portable app that allows you to schedule Windows apps (and programs) to launch automatically and at specific time intervals.  Much better and easier than the Windows Task Scheduler (see below); AND,

Squeak #4: Shopping for a laptop computer can be a real pain in the butt.  Eliminate the frustration by simply following the categories as posted below…

Unlock The Secret Options In Windows 7

August 23, 2012

Most techs have heard of the Windows 7 GodMode where there is a trick to creating a folder and giving it a special name [see here] to enable GodMode. GodMode is a hidden control panel that contains everything, in one place, about Windows 7 in terms of options, settings, customizations, etc…

Getting to GodMode can be a tricky venture for some; however, I came across a nice utility that gives you the ability to enable or disable God Mode in one mouse click. It is called the Windows 7 GodMode ToolSimply download the tool to a folder, unzip the tool and double click on the Windows 7 GodMode Tool file to launch the utility. When the interface loads simply click on “Enable GodMode”.

GodMode

After you click on “Enable GodMode” the tool button will change to “Disable GodMode” and an icon will appear on your desktop that is labelled “GodMode”.  Click on the “GodMode” icon to launch into the GodMode settings.

GodMode

To disable GodMode, simply run the Windows 7 GodMode Tool again and click on “Disable GodMode”.

A Super Downloadable Collection of Windows 7 Shortcuts

May 19, 2010

Here is something that I really, really liked that is a nice addition to my flash drive and to my Windows 7 computer… The web site “7Tutorials” has put out there a downloadable compilation of over 100 Windows 7 shortcuts. The shortcuts have been organized into folders, in such a manner, that you can readily find what you may be looking for very quickly; faster than all the clicks you would typically make using the Start Menu; faster than the time it takes to remember where it is and what it is you are looking for…

image

I love stuff like this and wonder why I did not think of doing something like this myself. The “cool factor” to this is that I can add to, and even customize this (with other techie shortcuts). For example, I have added the “Windows 7 God Mode” folder (with shortcuts) to this collection on my PC (don’t know how it would work from the flash drive on another PC)”.

Another tool for that tech toolbox… The shortcuts are bundled in a zip file and can be downloaded from [ HERE ]. You will find the download link at the bottom of the 7Tutorials web page.

Enhance Your Right Click Menus with Right Click Extender

February 19, 2010

When teaching others how to navigate their computers, the one area I find where people neglect is using the “right mouse button” to activate the context sensitive menus.

image

These menus often provide a quick solution (or choice) to an action you are looking for to get the job done; and, these solutions (or choices) vary depending on where you are on the computer.  For example the right click context menu in Windows Explorer differs from the right click context menu on your desktop.  As a challenge to the everyday computer user out there, try right clicking your mouse in different areas of your computer to explore the options that are available.  I guarantee, if you learn to use the “right mouse button” you will discover that the majority of functions you typically search for on the toolbar menus is only a “right mouse click” away and will save you mileage on your mouse.

To you “right click menu” power users I found a neat little utility called Right Click Extender that extends and enhances the capabilities of the right click context menus.

According to the author’s site [HERE] , Right Click Extender was primarily designed to work with Windows 7, but should work with Windows Vista as well. While not designed for Windows XP some features will work with XP as well, but if you try it and you don’t find the feature added, this is due to certain features not being available for XP.

So what is the “cool factors” to Right Click Extender?

You can easily enhance and activate some really neat (and useful) options to your File or Folder Right-Click Menu, your My Computer and Desktop Right-Click Menu by simply checking the options that are provided in the program (see below).

For example, you geeksters out there that are into those hidden “God Modes”, this little program will get you to geek heaven quick.

You can also deactivate the options by unchecking the options.
