Squeak #1: A huge tip on how to find important emails faster (from one of my favorite sites);

Squeak #2: In Windows XP, Vista and 7, you could invoke the Advanced Boot Options menu by pressing F8 (especially to get to Safe Mode). Did you know this is no longer possible in Windows 8; however, there is a way to bring the F8 control option back to life?

How to enable the F8 key to start Safe Mode in Windows 8

@ Bleeping Computer

Windows 8 introduced a new boot loader that decreased the time that it takes Windows 8 to start. Unfortunately, in order to do this Microsoft needed to remove the ability to access the Advanced Boot Options screen when you press the F8 key when Windows starts. This meant that there was no easy and quick way to access Safe Mode anymore by simply pressing the F8 key… LEARN HOW TO HERE

A Couch Friendly Keyboard By Logitech

June 7, 2013

Logitech is the best when it comes to the computer keyboard and mouse. One of their keyboard innovations that is quite impressive (in customer reviews) and is couch friendly is the Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 with Built-In Multi-Touch Touchpad.

Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 with Built-In Multi-Touch Touchpad

The reason I call this a couch friendly keyboard is because you can connect your laptop (and some tablets) to your TV and control the laptop from the comfort of your couch. The K400 has a range of approximately 33 feet (10 meters) and the best part is that it has a touchpad built right into the keyboard to control the functions of the mouse.

Long-range wireless control

  • Reliable Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connection with up to 33 ft range*
  • Control your TV-connected laptop from across the room
  • Turn up the volume, pause or tweet about the movie you just downloaded—all without leaving the couch

Built-in large touchpad with intuitive Windows 8 gesture support

  • No need for a separate mouse
  • Large 3.5-inch touchpad with multi-touch navigation for easy horizontal and vertical scrolling
  • Convenient left and right click buttons

Plug-and-play simplicity

  • No cords, software or hassles
  • Plug the Logitech Unifying wireless receiver into your USB port and start navigating
  • Tiny receiver can stay in your laptop and connect up to six compatible Unifying wireless devices

12-month battery life**

  • Go for a full year without changing batteries
  • On-off switch helps you save power when you’re not using the keyboard

Works with:

  • Windows 8/Windows 8 RT, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows XP
  • USB port

The Start Menu Will Be Back In Windows 8.1. Is This An Upgrade or a Downgrade?

May 29, 2013

One thing that I have learned over the years is to try and look at Computer Information Technology through the eyes of the end user, which is YOU!. When Microsoft released Windows 8, which by the way is an excellent operating system, they forgot to look at it through the eyes of the end user, which is YOU! For me, it was another toy to play with and I made myself understand it (because that is what I do); but, 99 percent of the people who use computers are not like me.  99 percent of these people were finally getting somewhat in the groove of learning and navigating Windows and then Microsoft dropped the Windows 8 bombshell that really threw people off. I daily hear the complaints about the Start Menu being missing and that you have to jump through a hoop to get to the desktop.

I do have some good news about Windows 8.  In the very near future you are going to see an upgrade to Windows 8 (which will be FREE), called Windows 8.1, that in a sense is actually a downgrade.

Windows 8.1 Start Menu

You need to jump over to Paul Thurott’s Supersite for Windows to read about the changes that are going to occur when the Windows 8 downgrade or I mean upgrade occurs.  The biggest change is that Microsoft is giving in and is going to return the Start Menu and will give you the option of booting to the desktop instead of the Metro Start Screen. They are also planning some other neat changes…

Wallpaper of the Week (#115) – B2 Spirit Stealth Bomber

March 30, 2013

This week’s wallpaper is a detailed image of the B2 Spirit Stealth Bomber that was recently flown over South Korea to participate in annual military exercises amid spiking tensions with North Korea.

The B-2’s low-observable, or “stealth”, characteristics enable the undetected penetration of sophisticated anti-aircraft defenses and to attack even heavily defended targets. – [source: wikipedia]
