    Zooming text on a webpage
    Sick of clicking manually on the zoom drop down all the time? No problem! Hold down the Ctrl key and scroll with your mouse wheel... pretty neat huh? The page zooms in and out based on the direction you move the mousewheel. This also works in most modern web browsers which is incredibly useful if you have short sight problems etc. Computer tricks don't get much better than this!

    Make your pc about 200% faster.
    NOTE:Changing your registry can make your PC inoperationable.
    Advance with cautiion..................

    A.Go to start then click run and then type regedit.If you can't find run on your version of windows type R-U-N just above the start menu
    B. Select HKEY_CURRENT_USER select control panel folder and select desktop folder.

    1. Install Debian.
    2. Install Privoxy.
    3. Install Squid3.
    4. Chain the proxies such that the connection looks like this:

    Browser->Squid3->Privoxy->Internet

    Enjoy ad-free surfing, while caching web objects thanks to Squid3. Web pages will appear to load instantaneously and the nasty ads won't even be cached by Squid3, because Privoxy will block 'em before they ever reach the cache. You can now turn off ALL browser caching, since Squid3 serves as a web cache for ALL browsers. Surfing is LIGHTENING fast, particularly if using the Chromium web browser via the following command:

    chromium-browser -disk-cache-size=0 --incognito --proxy-server=127.0.0.1:3128

    If you sniff around the net a bit, you can tune Squid3 to function as a high anonymous (elite) proxy, which means the web sites you visit won't even be able to detect your are using a proxy at all.

    Response
    The only problem with this is that after 3 or so visits to the same site you are taking the chance of being blocked from that site. The sites can still read your ISP number. Best bet is to alter your hosts file in

    C:WINDOWS system32 drivers etc

    Give yourself a private folder on Windows

    For a some reason, maybe you have some personal data or private files in your computer that you want to hide from someone else. If you're a Windows user, you can use the following way to hide your files so that it remains secure from being accidentally accessed by other people.

    1. Create a folder and move your personal data or private files to that folder
    2. Rename that folder using a "blank" name by holding down the ALT key and typing "255" (without quotes) using NUMPAD on your keyboard. Then press ENTER or left-click your mouse
    3. Right click on that folder and select Properties. Then, select Customize tab and click on Change Icon to change folder icon. Find an "invisible" icon and click OK.
    4. Right click on that folder again and select Properties. Change the folder attribute into Hidden.
    5. Now you have a hidden private folder

    "The best Little picture on the Internet"


    This free program provides a number of helpful tools for working with digital photos. XnView's pane interface shouldn't disorient most users, as it uses a tree-like structure to let you view your shots and browse your music collection.

    Our lone complaint on this front is that the more complex effects and filters aren't accessible via the main window and require you to double-click a shot before you can use them. Besides standard tools for rotating images and renaming files in bulk, this app also can convert pics among a wide variety of formats.

    In addition, you'll find tools for capturing screenshots and creating basic slide shows, as well as a simple audio player. We were excited to see a utility for generating Web galleries, but we quickly despaired when we couldn't get it to work. Still, we recommend XnView to digital photographers who already have a first-class editing program.
