How To Enable Night Light Mode In Windows 10

April 28, 2017

One of the new features that come to Windows 10, after the Windows Creators Update, is “Night Light”…

If you are one of those computer users who is on the computer during the night hours, then “Night Light” is a feature that you may want to enable. Studies have shown that our sleep cycle can be disrupted as a result of blue light that emanates from our computer displays (monitor). A solution to this is to change the hue;: thus,  restricting the blue light. This is where “Night Light” comes in to play. “Night Light” will help you display warmer colors to help you sleep; is fully adjustable; and, can be scheduled to auto turn “on” and “off”.

To get to “Night Light” on your computer: Click on Start > Settings > System > Display > Night Light Settings

Retrieve Your Login Details By Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge or Opera browser At Once

April 14, 2017

You have the option with most browsers, for the matter of convenience, to save your passwords. This option is typically used on a computer that you exclusively use, such as, your computer at home.

The problem with this is you are accustomed to the browser remembering the password for you; however when you change to another computer (or use another browser) you suddenly realize that you can’t remember the password.  This is where Sterjo Browser Passwords comes to the rescue.

SterJo Browser Passwords is an easy-to-use tool that recovers passwords for most popular web browsers like: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Vivaldi and Yandex. Recovered data includes the URL (website address), the forgotten username with password, and the browser used to store those details.

Available as a full install or as a portable app.

March 29, 2017

Treesize FREE is software that is engineered to quickly scan the directories and files on your computer to tell you (in a nice GUI layout) where the spacehogs are.

TreeSize FREE, as of Version 4.0, now offers the hierarchical treemap chart known from TreeSize Professional. The treemap will help you visualize how the data is distributed on your system. The treemap feature is activated by using the “Show Treemap” button on the “View” Tab.

MiniTool Partition Wizard Free 10.2.1 – An Editor’s Choice At DownloadCrew

March 24, 2017

This FREE partition tool gives you more flexibility (and more options) in comparison to the partition tool that is baked into Windows. For example, an option jumping out at me, that is not a windows option, is that there is a tool for wiping a partition securely, allowing you to delete the data from it (to the point that the data cannot be recovered by any data recovery solution). Other numerous options are reflected in the screenshot below…

Top 10 Best Sellers – Antivirus and Security Software

March 17, 2017

Antivirus software, now often referred to as security (suite) software, due to the innumerable threats, come in a variety of different brands. To get an idea, check out the top ten sellers at Amazon (see source links below).

I personally use a FREE antivirus program called Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition; however, you may feel more comfortable using one of the paid commercial versions such as reflected below.

Antivirus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from: malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious LSPs, dialers, fraudtools, adware and spyware.[2] Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, advanced persistent threat (APT) and botnet DDoS attacks.
