What You Should Really Consider When Getting a PC

A laptop with a text on its screen

When getting a new PC, do not get too excited or engrossed on the Processor series of that PC, for instance Intel Core i5, intel Core i7 etc.

Most users will like to go for the processor series with highest number attached to the core as long as they can afford it, not knowing there are other significant details you need to look out for first.

We all know Intel's Core i7 or Core i9 processors are excellent for gaming and demanding tasks, while Core i5 or Core i3 processors are more budget-friendly for everyday use.

An average computer user will always go for core i7 over core i5 without having to check for other specifics attached to corei7/core i5, other specifics such as the Generation of the processor and the clock speed.

The Generation of the processor plays a very important role in the selection of a PC. 

How do we identify the generation of an Intel core from just it's name?

For instance, Intel Core i5 is not actually the complete name of the processor, there are other numbers attached to it, which you can see when you look it up on the information page of the processor in your PC.

You should see something like "Intel Core i5-11600K" or "Intel Core i5-8600K".

The first digit or digits in the model number indicates the generation of that processor. Using the two core i5 above as example, the "11" represents the 11th Generation, while the "8" in the other core i5 represents the 8th generation.

The latter the generation, the better the processor. This means instead of going for a "Core i5-8700k" which is an 8th Gen Processor, you should go for a "Core i3-10600X" which is a 10th Gen Processor.

I hope you take this knowledge into consideration when getting your next PC.

windows 10 laptop computer about to record screen

Speed up your actions by learning how to record your screen in Windows 10

screen recording helps you capture your screen and record a video that you’ll be able to use later. But what is screen recording used for? You can record your conference, business meeting and create a detailed video with the help of a robust screen recording app or a dedicated program. You can also record the entire desktop and then share your videos with the intended audience on YouTube or other video-sharing platforms.

Most windows 10 users don't know that Windows 10 has a screen recording utility called the Xbox Game Bar. Using this, you can record a video of your actions in just about any Windows app on your laptop, whether you want to capture gameplay or create a tutorial for someone on Microsoft Office, Corel draw or Photoshop. 

To make it easier for you, we've listed out a few simple steps on how to record your computer screen in Windows 10.

The screen recording tool is part of the Xbox app that comes installed by default in Windows 10. Xbox Game Bar received some major updates to make it more useful, so you can now take screenshots and even make memes.


How to record your computer screen in Windows 10

1. Open the app you want to record. Note that, the screen recorder tool can't capture some programs such as File Manager, or the entire desktop , but it does work in regular desktop apps (and those from the Windows Store).

2. Press the Windows key + G at the same time to open the Game Bar dialog.

3. Check the "Yes, this is a game" checkbox to load the Game Bar. This is the procedure whether you are screen recording a game or another kind of app.

5. Stop the recording by clicking on the red recording bar that will be on the top right of the program window. 

That's all!
You'll find your recorded videos, which are MP4 files, under the Videos folder in a subfolder called Captures. You'll also find them in the Xbox app under the Game DVR menu, where you can trim a video and share it on Xbox live (if it's a game).

How to take screenshots on your computer in windows 10

1. Open the app or file you want to capture

2. Press the Windows key + G at the same time to open the Game Bar dialog.

3. Check the "Yes, this is a game" checkbox to load the Game Bar. (It doesn't matter even if what you want to capture is not a game).

4. Click the camera icon on the Game Bar or Win + Alt + PrtScn and it will automatically take screenshots of the current screen.

That's how to do it. You can find all your screenshots in the Picture folder.

150+ Best Windows CMD Commands You Need To Know

 150+ Best Windows CMD Commands You Need To Know

150+ Best Windows CMD Commands You Need To Know

What is CMD?

CMD is an acronym for Command. Command prompt or CMD is the command line interpreter of Windows operating systems. It is similar to used in DOS and Windows 9x systems where it is called as “MS-DOS Prompt”. It is analogous to Unix Shells used on Unix like system. The command prompt is a native application of the Windows operating system and gives the user an option to perform operations using commands.

Command prompt makes use of the command line interface to interact with the User. In the Windows operating system, this command prompt interface is implemented through the Win32 console. User can open the interface by via the CMD run command or by going to its original location C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe.

How Does CMD Works?

With the command shell, you can have direct interaction with the operating system. Think command prompt as an interpreter which accepts the commands or the inputs from the User and translate it into machine language. These commands are predefined and perform a specific task. These commands can be clubbed together as well to perform a series of task. Also, these commands need not be entered manually and can be written in a batch file to automate some of the manual tasks like taking a scheduled server backup, deleting junk files and so on. These commands are very handy at the time of network troubleshooting or for a day to day work. These commands can be called from many programming languages such as Java which allows the programmer to perform task directly via the command prompt which otherwise would take several lines of code to be written essentially to perform the same task.

How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

 How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card
Have you ever encountered write Protection warning that that pops up when you insert an SD card into devices such as computer, digital camera,etc, and could not find a solution to it?

In this post you will find out:

  •  why you cannot format the write-protected SD card
  •  methods on how to remove protection from a memory card
  •  how Disk Internals software can help you

What does it mean, if an SD card is write protected?

This may happen every time: you insert an SD card to the adapter in your computer/laptop, digital camera, etc and you can view and read all the files located on it, but this is all that you can do with this SD card.
You will find it impossible to add anything, and you cannot format a write-protected card. Below are the possible reasons and solutions to why an SD Card is write protected.

Reasons and Solutions:

1. SD card is write-protected for physical reasons
SD card is write protected because of switcher
How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

Here, the switch that protects the SD card from being overwritten is active.

To fix it, disable the lock. On each SD card on one side, there is a switch, which needs to be shifted in the opposite direction and then the SD card can be reconnected to the computer.

Did this method for removing write protection from an SD card not help you? No worries since there are many other solutions to the situation.

2. SD card write-protected due to software
This situation may occur due to read-only attributes.

To fix it, delete them using the command line.

Press Win + X at the same time; you will see a cmd window where you need to type "diskpart" on the keyboard and confirm pressing Enter.
How To Remove Write Protection From SD Card

Then enter the command "list disk" and press Enter.

Then enter the command "list disk" and press Enter.

Disks connected to the system will appear in a new window. Select your SD card (you can find it by the appropriate disk size; for example, drive 0).

Next, in command Prompt, type: "select disk 0", then press Enter.

Then enter the command "list disk" and press Enter.

Next, enter the attributes. "disk clear read-only command" and press Enter.

These actions will remove the attributes and remove write protection from your micro SD card.

4. Write protection is gone but so is the data
This is due to improper use of the diskpart utility. (Sometimes instead of removing the write protection, users format their SD cards). And, as you know, due to the formatting, all data is lost.

To fix it, use DiskInternals Partition Recovery. This application recreates the file system on the SD card, so the files can be found and restored. It recovers any file: photos, music, videos, documents, etc. You can also not worry about large files: the application can handle even them. It has been designed to satisfy user's needs without fail:

There are three recovery wizards that will explain everything to you step by step, depending on your file system: Partition Recovery Wizard, NTFS Recovery Wizard, and FAT Recovery Wizard.
There are several scan modes (fast, full).
There is a free file preview for assurance.
There is a trial version at no cost; you only need to pay if you want to save the recovered files to any disk visible to the system and with unshakable technical support.
