Is it possible to use a TV as a computer display and/or as a second display?

Is it possible to use a TV as a computer display and/or as a second display? As I prepare this posting here at What’s On My PC, I am typing this on my computer using a TV (32″) as my primary display and a second TV (26″) set up as the second display. So the answer is YES…; but, what is involved to make this work???

To learn more, I encourage you to read the article, “Can I Use My TV as a Second Display?” at “Ask Leo”… (see source link below) where Leo explains more about using the HDMI connections on your TV and computer and the benefits of using the HDMI connection. It is not as hard as you think.

Most modern TVs and computers can be connected easily, but there are a few issues to be aware of.

Make Tech Easier Shows Us “How to Clone Windows 10 to an SSD” Using Popular FREE Software

Cloning an exact copy of your hard disk is a good move and is a good (fast) method in restoring the Windows OS when things get messed up. Keep in mind, when you clone a disk, it is the exact copy of the disk on the date that you made the copy and is a good idea to do this on a regular basis.  I typically update and keep available a cloned copy of my hard disk at least once a year. My routine file backups I do on a more aggressive schedule. Cloning is also an excellent option when you want to move your current Windows 10 OS to a new drive that you have decided to upgrade and install.

Make Tech Easier will walk through the cloning process using the FREE software options of EaseUS or AOMEI Backupper (see source link below). Both of these software options are excellent choices.

So you bought an SSD drive, and you want to move your Windows 10 OS to the new drive. Here are a few ways you can clone and swap the OS install to an SSD.

Cybersecurity Tips For the Young and Old

It is important we hash out, over and over, the importance of how to stay safe online and what to look for. Jacqui over at “Ask A Tech Teacher” posted an article, “Teaching Basic Cybersecurity Measures To Everyday People (For Parents of Digital Natives)“, that are tips geared toward the strategy of teaching our kids the basics on how to be safe online.

After reading this article, I said, you know what(?); this article, everyone should read. We all have that kid in us and these tips are great tips that all of us big kids need to read and follow (“Harmful Links; Viruses & Malware; Suspicious Downloads; Utilizing a VPN; Best Email Practices, HTTPS > HTTP When Providing Information Online; Using Antivirus Programs; and Update Software”).

One thing I want to point out in addition to these cybersecurity protections is that three-quarters of the battle when using internet-connected devices; such as the computer, tablet or smartphone,  is learning the terminology and definitions. Get the terminology in your head and it will all start making sense and will make using these devices more of a joy, instead of a burden; PLUS, before you know it, you will want to be teaching others.

For many adults and parents, it can be a difficult task to teach the basic of staying safe online to those who are younger. However, the best strategy is starting conversations at an early age. This advice will be timeless as kids are starting to use the internet at younger and younger ages.

How To Turn “ON” and Use The NEW Windows 10 Clipboard Tracking Utility

Did you know that following the Windows 10 October 2018 update, a new Windows clipboard feature has been added that allows you to track and maintain a history of the items (text and images — up to 4MB) that you copy to the clipboard?  This new feature is not turned on by default; however, I will outline below how to turn it on.

Why would you want to maintain a history of your copy (and paste) operations?

This new feature is a Godsend to me. If you are a blogger, graphic designer, and/or write numerous documents at work, you have most likely learned how to use the “Copy (Ctrl-C)” and “Paste (Ctrl-V”) operation in Windows where you copy a line of text or an image and paste it into another location. The problem with this is once you do this more than one time, it erases any previous items you may have copied.

With the NEW Windows 10 clipboard tracking utility, this problem is resolved where once you copy an item (text or image) to the clipboard it is added to a list of previous items you copied. If you copy/paste the same item on multiple occasions you can pin that item to the list so that it is not removed from the list. Another feature with this clipboard is that you can sync the clipboard timeline so that it is available on other computers you may access. You will need a Microsoft account for this feature to work.

Before I go any further in explaining how to turn on this NEW clipboard utility, I want to sort of back into this by telling you that to invoke or launch the clipboard history, hit the “Windows + V” keys in combination on your clipboard. Once the clipboard appears on the screen you can double mouse click on an entry and it will auto paste in the location you select.

How do I turn on this clipboard utility?

  • Go to the “Windows Start Button” at the bottom left corner and “right mouse click”
  • Open Settings.
  • Click on System.
  • Click on Clipboard.
  • Turn on the “Clipboard history” toggle switch.
  • Turn on the “Snyc across devices” toggle (optional)

That is all there is to it…  Remember to launch this utility you must hit the “Windows + V” keys…

Windows 10: How to Create A Shortcut For The Onscreen Keyboard

Windows 10 has two variations of onscreen keyboards available. There is one of the two that I especially like (which WAS sort of difficult to get to). Once I discovered this keyboard (the one that I like) I decided there had to be a better way to launch it; and, as a result I came up with the following solution.

You are probably wondering; Why would I want an onscreen keyboard?  I have a TV set up connected to a Windows 10 computer where the onscreen keyboard is a great addition when I am too lazy to go to the real keyboard. You would be surprised how fast you can point, click and type using an onscreen keyboard. I could also see me using an onscreen keyboard in a training scenario or if I had a disability.

To create a shortcut to the keyboard that I use, right mouse click on the  “Windows Start button (bottom right corner)”, then click on “run” and in the “run dialog box” type “osk”; then click on “OK”. At this point, the onscreen keyboard (the one I like) launches. If the keyboard is too big you can resize it by dragging the sides or corners. If you notice on the top right side of the keyboard there is a “Windows minimize button”.  Click on the “minimize button” and the keyboard will minimize to the Windows Taskbar (at the bottom of the screen).  At this point, right mouse click on the keyboard icon that is now on the taskbar and select “pin to taskbar”.  There you have it…

Now when you want to quickly launch the onscreen keyboard, just go to the taskbar and click on the onscreen keyboard icon and the keyboard will quickly launch. There are other ways to get to this keyboard, but this is the method I prefer and found to be the most user-friendly.

A Really Great Bookmarks Manager For Google Chrome

If you use Google Chrome you probably know that to get to your bookmarks you have to jump through a few hoops to get there, which is not user-friendly in my opinion. I have been exploring many bookmark managers and I am currently working with one that is a Google Chrome browser extension called “Popup my Bookmarks”. What I like about this bookmarks manager is that you continue to save your bookmarks in Google Chrome, as you always have by clicking on the “star” to the right of the web address; but, instead of going the traditional route of getting to your bookmarks you simply mouse click on the “Popup my Bookmarks” icon on the toolbar. At this point, your bookmarks list and folders are readily available with built-in options to perform bookmark management tasks (such as deleting bookmarks, moving bookmarks and creating folders). “Popup my Bookmarks” is also customizable. “Popup my Bookmarks” is available at the Google Chrome Store (see source link below).

Don’t Overlook Google’s FREE Drawing and Graphic Editor

Anyone that uses any of the online web-based Google Products, such as Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides most likely have overlooked Google’s version of their drawing and graphics editor (called Google Drawings). I currently use Google Drawings to typically make graphic postings on my blog and other social media sites such as Facebook. To give you some good insight into Google Drawings I came across the tutorial below to help you get started. Some points I do want to make is that Google Drawings is very easy to learn and use; that you can do some pretty neat graphics related tasks such as creating logos, signs, backgrounds, etc.; and, it integrates well with Google Docs, Sheets and Slides.

How to install and uninstall extensions in Chrome | Addictive Tips

If you are a Google Chrome browser user, you need to read this article at Addictive Tips (see source link below) on how to install and uninstall extensions. Many folks I know and have helped at home have no idea what a browser extension is. Browser extensions are, in my words, add-ons that you can install that will enhance your computing experience when using your web browser. Most extensions (or add-ons) will show up on the toolbar at the top of your browser. For example, I have an extension installed where I click on an icon on the toolbar and can easily read my incoming email. There are many, many extensions to choose… Right now I have approximately 30 different extensions installed. These extensions, for Google Chrome, can be acquired (for FREE) at the Google Chrome Store.

If you’ve never tried an extension out, or you don’t know where to get started, you’ll be surprised to know how easy it is to install and uninstall extensions in Chrome.

Did You Know “Facebook Messenger now lets you unsend messages, if you act quickly”?

Unlike the “unsend” feature in Instagram’s direct messages, however, you will only have 10 minutes from when you send the message on Facebook Messenger to delete it from the chat for both parties. Similar to WhatsApp’s delete feature, the removed message will be replaced with a line of text saying that you “removed a message.”

How to print from a Chromebook | Android Central

Android Central provides the steps necessary to get your Chromebook prepped to work with your printer, by using Google’s Cloud Print. I have been using Google’s Cloud Print since its’ inception and can vouch for its’ reliability. The good about this is you can be around the other side of the globe and send a print job to your printer. Now how cool is that…

Change

Chromebooks can’t download and install the tens of thousands of printer drivers in existence, but that’s why Google Cloud Print exists. Google Cloud Print is a internet-enabled printing standard that allows users to print on any of their devices — Chromebooks, Macs, PCs, Android phones, iPhones and iPads — whether they’re trying to print from the next room or the next state over. Google Cloud Print has been around for the better part of a decade, now, and the majority of printers on the market today are “Cloud-ready printers” that just need to be registered with your account before you start printing. That said, not all printers have it yet, so check and see if your existing printer is Cloud-ready or if you’ll need to grab a printer that is.

Convert Microsoft Publisher Files to PDF Free Online

Just experienced a situation where someone sent me a Microsoft Publisher file as an email attachment. Guess what, most people, including myself, do not have Publisher installed and when using my Chromebook there is no conversion option available. To remedy this issue, I went to a website called “Convert Publisher to PDF” and within minutes, after uploading the publisher file and downloading the converted pdf file, I could see the contents of the file. Also appears you can save the converted file to Google Drive, Box, and OneDrive.

TechRepublic Instructs You “How to enable Night Light in Chrome OS”

I have to admit, I love my Chromebook… The Chrome OS keeps getting better and offers options that make good sense. One such option now baked into the Chrome OS is the “Night Light” feature. The goal of the “Night Light” feature is to help reduce your exposure to blue light for good eye health and to help you sleep better.

So, how do you get to this feature? Below is a brief summarization on how to activate this feature; however, to get the full blown tutorial on this I encourage you to visit TechRepublic (see source link below).

To enable Night Light in Chrome OS, open Settings, and look for the Displays section, where Night Light can be enabled. Adjust the slider to turn Night Light on, and then you’ll also be able to adjust two other features: Color temperature of the display and the schedule.

Here is how you can delete all articles stored in your Pocket account?

Recently I wanted to bulk delete articles I had saved in my Pocket account and found there is really no easy way of doing that; however, I did find a way to delete everything with what I will refer to as the “nuclear option” (see below).

First, if you don’t know what pocket is, here is a description:

Pocket is a free service that makes it easy to discover great content that’s personalized to your interests, and save this content so you can return to it later – on any device, at any time. It’s your one-stop destination for reading engaging content, catching up on your favorite blogs and news sources, and watching videos that you discovered but weren’t in the right place to watch. Now, there’s no longer a reason to worry about finishing up an article before getting to work, sending the kids to school, or making that next cup of coffee.

Ok, now for the “nuclear option”…  CLICK HERE and you will be redirected to Pocket’s Privacy Control Page where you can select to remove all of your Pocket data. 

 

Here are some tips on “How to Safely and Securely Dispose of Your Old Gadgets” | WIRED

This is IMPORTANT… If you are planning on getting rid of your old devices (smartphone, tablets, computers), PLEASE take at least (at minimum) the necessary steps to clear the device of your data. Always do a backup to ensure you have all of your files, before doing this.

Reflected below, are steps I extracted from the article (see source link below), that will help you wipe an Android device, a Windows Computer, and a Mac. I don’t know how many times I have assisted folks and they throw the old device in the closet somewhere and the device is still holding their entire life…

For Android devices, open up the Settings app then tap System > Advanced > Reset options, and then Erase all data (factory reset). Over on iOS, the equivalent option is in the Settings app under General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.

If you’re using a Windows computer, you need to load up the Settings app then click Update & Security, then Recovery, then Get started under the Reset this PC option. Choose to remove all personal files during the process. If you’re using a Chromebook or Chrome OS tablet, open up the Settings pane and pick Advanced, then Powerwash to get your computer into an as-new state.

It’s slightly more involved on a Mac: You need to restart macOS, then as soon as it begins to boot up again, hold Option+Command+R until you see a spinning globe. Release the keys, then choose Reinstall macOS, then choose Continue. Follow the on-screen instructions and select your main hard drive when prompted.
