Quick Tip: How To Hide Facebook Posts From People You Do Not Want To Unfriend

If you have that specific friend that you are tired of seeing their rampant political postings (or any type of posting for that matter) that goes against your views; yet, you do not want to offend them too much by unfriending them, there are several quick options in Facebook to fix this.

Here is how to do this:

The next time you see a post from this friend, look in the upper right corner of the post and click on the three dots (also called an ellipsis). A dropdown box will appear where you will see the following options:

Hide Posts – see fewer posts like this. (Facebook will attempt to block any further postings such as what you are seeing; BUT, you will still see other postings from this friend).

Snooze XXX for 30 Days – Temporarily stop seeing posts. (This option gives you a break from the friend and you will not see any postings from the friend for 30 days).

Hide All From XXX – Stop seeing posts from this person. (This option is the nuclear option. You will stop seeing the friends posts; BUT, they will still remain a Facebook friend and they will not know any different).

Google just took a strange step towards replacing Android with something better | BGR

Android might be one of the two most important mobile operating systems right now, and the biggest one by market share, but it certainly won’t be around forever. That’s why Google is already working on a universal OS that would one day replace Android without users having to worry about it. Fuchsia, as it’s called for the time being, will run seamlessly on a variety of devices, regardless of screen size. It’ll deliver faster updates and better privacy features, according to some reports, and it’ll support Android apps as well as native Fuchsia apps.

LG Stylo 5 has launched on Cricket Wireless | Phandroid

These are decent phones for the money. I had a couple of these (older model version) and just handed them down to family members. No other phone, at this cost point, has a stylus and does everything most people need. I have not seen these hit Amazon yet, but get this. You can get a case for the LG Stylo 5 at Amazon – click here – to see!

Quick Tip: How To Zip (Compress) and UnZip (Decompress) Files In Windows 10

You may have seen those files, called “zip” files, that have the “zip” extension. When you encounter those types of files, what you are seeing is a file that is typically compressed that contains many files inside the zip file. I know, for the beginner, this is hard to understand.

Below (courtesy of Microsoft) is how you create or compress files into a “zip” file and how you decompress a “zip” file to reveal what is inside. Typically, the home-based user most likely will be decompressing or opening a zip file, so it is best to grasp that concept first.

Zip

In the search box on the taskbar, enter file explorer. From the search results, select File Explorer. Right-click the file you want to zip, and then select Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder. 

Zipping a file by selecting Compressed (zipped) folder

Unzip

Open File Explorer, and find the zipped folder.

To unzip the entire folder, right-click to select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.

To unzip a single file or folder, double-click the zipped folder to open it. Then, drag or copy the item from the zipped folder to a new location.

To snap a window with the keyboard:

  • Select the window you want to snap and press the Windows Logo Key  + Left Arrow to snap that window to the left of your screen or the Windows Logo Key  + Right Arrow to snap that window to the right.
  • If you want to move it to a corner after snapping it, then with the window selected, press the Windows Logo Key  + Up Arrow or the Windows Logo Key  + Down Arrow to get it into the desired corner.
  • After you move the window to a corner, the window is in its smallest possible state, which is a quarter of the screen. Then you can use the Windows Logo Key  + Arrow Keys to move it wherever you want.
