b2ap3_thumbnail_shutting_down_comp_400.jpgThere’s a considerable difference between turning off some appliance, like a television or a vacuum cleaner, and turning off your computer. Why does the computer take so long to power down, and is there any way to speed up the process? This tip will explore these subjects, and give you a few ideas as to how to speed up the shutdown process.

b2ap3_thumbnail_nice_tips_400.jpgYour computer is mostly just a machine used to accomplish specific tasks. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t know all of the advanced tips that help you get the most out of it, though. Here are some of the best shortcuts that you can use to take full advantage of your workstation.

b2ap3_thumbnail_windows_server_end_of_life_400.jpgUsing the most up-to-date versions of your technology’s operating systems is one of the best ways to stay secure. Yet, some organizations forego the jump to more recent operating systems due to the immense up-front expense represented by upgrading multiple servers or workstations at once. Unfortunately, this can be detrimental to your organization’s security, and potentially even put your business’s future at risk.

b2ap3_thumbnail_disable_your_windows_password_400.jpgThe Windows Login Password Screen serves a valuable purpose in keeping unwanted users from accessing your PC. Although, if your computer is located in a place where unwanted users don’t typically hang out (like your home office), then the Login Screen may feel like a nuisance. In such a scenario, you can go ahead and disable the Windows Password Screen.

b2ap3_thumbnail_open_apps_in_fullscreen_from_a_shortcut_400.jpgHere’s something that you might have noticed about opening Windows applications on your desktop; by default, they will generally open in a smaller window, giving you the ability to customize their size as you see fit. If you want a full size Window, it’s as easy as clicking on the maximize button in the top-right corner, but what if you didn’t want to go through this every time you open the app? There’s a solution for this, and we’ll help you find it.
