If you’ve got drives in My Computer that you never access, such
as a USB Flash drive that you are using solely for ReadyBoost, a floppy
drive, or a network drive only used for a particular piece of software,
then you might want to simply hide the drive from your computer.
This tip will only hide the drive from being displayed, applications
and the command prompt will still have access to it, and you can still
manually browse to the folder if you type in the path.
Now what’s that floppy drive doing there?
Shortcut keys help provide an easier and usually quicker method of navigating and using computer software programs. Shortcut keys are commonly accessed by using the Alt (on IBM compatible computers), command key (on Apple computers), Ctrl, or Shift in conjunction with a single letter. The de facto standard for listing a shortcut is listing the modifier key, a plus symbol, and the single character. In other words, "ALT+S" is telling you to press the Alt key and while continuing to hold the Alt key, press the S key to perform the shortcut.
In addition to the shortcuts listed on this page, users can find the shortcut keys to their most popular program by looking for underlined letters in their menus. For example, in the picture to the right you'll can notice that the "F" in File has been underlined. This means you can press the Alt key and F to access the File menu. Note: Some programs require the user press and hold ALT to see the underlined characters. Finally, as can also be seen some of the common features such as Open (Ctrl+O) and Save (Ctrl+S) have shortcut keys assigned to them.
Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 users can copy the output of
command line commands such as dir to the clipboard by using the clip command.
For example, if you wanted to copy the dir output to the clipboard you would type the below command.
Users who're not using these versions of Windows or other operating systems may
not have access to this command but can send the output of commands to a file
DashlaneMost people today are using more than just their computer to log into online services making it much harder to manage and store all your passwords between multiple computers, cell phones, and tablets. The service known as Dashlane helps solve this problem by making it easy to store, change, and share all your online passwords between all types of computers, cell phones, and tablets. In addition to managing your passwords the service can also Autofill out any online form, save online electronic receipts, warn you about password vulnerabilities, send you password alerts, generate strong passwords, and much more.
Dashline uses the strongest encryption there is by encrypting all data using AES-256 and only you know the master password since Dashline does not store the master password on any of their servers and not even on your local computer. The master password is also never sent in transmission so it cannot be intercepted by any man-in-the-middle attack. Since the service is a cloud based service, Dashline synchronize your information between computers and devices using a Device Key, which is not related to the master password.
Bonus Tip: Click Tools and then Preferences. In the Preferences window click Security and then choose Click to unlock settings. Check the "Automatically log out after inactivity" and specify a time. This will log Dashlane out and prevent anyone who has access to your computer from accessing your accounts.
