Resurrecting PCs One At A Time
|Surfing on the net is not as secure as the average internet user may think. Your identity and what you are doing can be monitored easily. This is especially true for those with Wireless networks, those who browse the internet from their work computer and those that browse dodgy (red flag) websites. The solution is to use an anonymizer when you surf the net.|
|I have found that amongst Windows XP users, One of the least used tools, is the Right Click. Personally, if I cant right click on something, I almost feel as though my computer browsing has been crippled. To add the ability to open a command prompt from the right click menu, follow this guide.|
|You probably already know how to create just a plain hidden folder. It is super easy, you just right click on the folder and select Hidden then click Apply. The problem is that anyone with access to the computer can easily turn on the Show Hidden Files and Folders and then can easily see the folder you created. Well here is a trick that will get around this problem and create a invisible folder that has no text and no icon.|
|This is a seldom used Windows XP feature that is sure to come in handy (probably when you least suspect it). I’m referring to Mousekeys, which when activated allows you to navigate the mouse cursor using the arrow keys on your keyboard. This type of knowledge can definitely help you out if you are ever in a situation where the mouse is inoperable.|
There are a few ways we can open Mousekeys , I will show you 3 different ways…
Click , then .
Type control access.cpl,,4
Here is a 2nd way to open Mousekeys…
On your Keyboard Press the following Keys at the same time:
Left SHIFT + ALT + NUM LOCK
Finally here is the 3rd way to open Mousekeys…
Click , then Go to CONTROL PANEL , then Go to ACCESSIBILITY OPTIONS, then click on the MOUSE Tab
The Mousekeys will open. Depending on how you opened Mousekeys, you either have to check mark the box USE MOUSEKEYS , then click ok. (if you opened Mousekeys using the Left SHIFT+ALT+ NUMLOCK, then all you have to do is hit OK and Mousekeys will start) Once the Mousekeys is running simply use the arrow keys located on your numeric keypad (8 is up, 2 is down, 4 is left, and 6 is right).
To move the cursor simply tap on the arrows in the numeric keypad (if you hold down one of the arrows, it will move the cursor faster).
You will probably notice that the cursor moves incredibly slow, so one other thing I do is, when I open Mousekeys, I go into the Settings and adjust the speed all the way up.
Here is what you need to know to navigate with Mousekeys:
To move up, tap or hold down the 8 key on your numeric keypad
To move down, tap or hold down the 2 key on your numeric keypad
To move right, tap or hold down the 6 key on your numeric keypad
To move left, tap or hold down the 4 key on your numeric keypad
To Click on something, Hit the 5 key on your numeric keypad
To double-click, press the plus sign (+) on your numeric keypad
To right-click, press the minus sign (-) on your numeric keypad
To drag something, move the cursor to the item you want to drag then press the Insert key. Then to release the item hit the Delete key.
