Tips to Improve Alexa Rank And Boost Approval by Online Ads Companies

Alexa is one of the most trusted online stats company which calculates the popularity of a website.

Make a Program Starts Automatically When Your Computer Boots

Do you want to set a software installed on your computer to start automatically when your PC boots up? If one software installed is used by you very often, then it makes sense to set it start automatically every time when PC starts. I have a Samsung netbook which is primarily used for browsing.

All the programs and tools listed in StartUp run automatically when the computer boots. This tutorial explains how to enable auto-start on selected applications installed on your laptop.

How To Reset Microsoft Notepad To Default Settings

Microsoft notepad is a default text writing tool you can find in Windows OS. Though it is very useful people don't give much weight to it if they have Microsoft Office installed on their PCs. What ever features other office tools (both Microsoft Office and Open Office tools) offer, notepad has its own place. You learn its importance only at a time when you cannot use this program due to any reason. Same happened to me today. Yesterday night one of my friends played his computer skills on various software products installed on my computer and as a result notepad failed to work properly. He simply said he doesn't remember what changes he made. At first I thought it is not a big deal because a simple reset can restore the default settings. So I tried to select the option to revert back to default settings. Now I learned the bitter truth there is no direct reset option in notepad. The only way to reset Microsoft notepad is to delete any keys created in registry.
