December 11, 2017

After finding out about the new look, I went into my online Google Calendar and was (right away) provided an option to switch to the new look… READ MORE

Geek Squeak #17-017: Here is a program for Microsoft Windows devices that displays the resource use of the computer on the Windows taskbar….

June 3, 2017

Just found a pretty neat Windows resource meter, called XMeters, over at ghacks.net. What makes this resource meter so different is that the hardware readings are displayed on the Windows taskbar, which keeps it in sight at all times and is not out of view when opening programs.

Image result for xmeters

XMeters is a handy system monitor for the Windows taskbar that provides you with important real-time hardware readings. It offers customization options to a degree, but could use a couple more (opening another program instead of Task Manager for instance, or colors to distinguish heavy resource use better)….

Google Chrome Tip: How To Open A Search In A New Tab When Using The Omnibox

May 26, 2017

In Google Chrome, where you type in a web address, you can also perform a search. This is called the “omnibox”. Many folks I assist in the home environment are quite surprised when I show them this feature. When typing in the omnibox, whatever it is you are searching for, you will also notice relevant suggestions to assist you with performing the search.

Now that you know how to search from the omnibox there is another tip that will improve your productivity when performing that search. If you type in the omnibox, whatever it is you are searching for, and hold down the “Alt” key on your keyboard and then hit the “Enter” key, your search result will open in a separate tag.  To me, this is a “must know” tip that will allow you to stay on your current page tab (without losing it), perform a search, and get the results on another page tab.

Preventing and Responding to Identity Theft – You can be a victim of identity theft even if you never use a computer. Malicious people may be able to obtain personal information (such as credit card numbers, phone numbers, account numbers, and addresses) by stealing your wallet, overhearing a phone conversation, rummaging through your trash (a practice known as dumpster diving), or picking up a receipt at a restaurant that has your account number on it. If a thief has enough information, he or she may be able to impersonate you to purchase items, open new accounts, or apply for loans…. READ MORE

How can I download a video posted on Facebook?

May 22, 2017

This is a question I recently searched for using Google. What I found is that there is no easy way on Facebook to download a video that has been posted by another party; however, I did find savefrom.net that will download a Facebook video providing you have the URL for the video.

To get the URL, simply right mouse click on the video, click on “show video URL”, then click on the “URL” (to highlight it), then hit “Ctrll+C” to copy the URL to the clipboard (or you can right mouse click and select “copy” which will copy the URL to the clipboard). After you have copied the URL to the clipboard, go to savefrom.net and enter the URL in the input field at the top of the main page. This action should present a download button where you can initiate the download (which will either be in MP4-HD or MP4-SD file formats).

With safefrom.net you can also download audio, video, and other types of files from various websites and social networks such as youtube.com, vk.com, vimeo.com, and others.
