Windows 10 Tips and Tricks- Infographic

The world is jumping towards upgrade as new inventions are scarce and upgrades are a plenty. Microsoft Windows has been one such franchise. People are often heard saying, we are happy with the current windows and don’t need an upgrade. This argument is negated by the fact that no one uses Windows 95 or the millennium edition anymore. Windows 10 is the latest upgrade which you should get as soon as possible as you are missing out on a lot of features.

Some of the basic features to die for include:

Speed

The startup and boot takes less time than any windows version in history along with an inbuilt DirectX capability that enhances game play experience.

Startup menu

The customizable startup menu has everything you need while running your computer. It incorporates the features compatible with advance mouse users and modern User Interface elements. The big menu can be changed according to your needs and can help you do anything without opening any hard disk partition.

Security

Additional firewall and data security ensures that you PC and data are always safe. The Microsoft passport and Windows Hello are the features that enhance the old security protocols. Data recovery software ensures that your data is secure and retractable even if the system goes haywire.

Snapping apps

A single screen can hold up to four snap-able apps which helps you greatly in multitasking work, entertainment, communication or/and social media.

Data recovery

One button data recovery enables you to never lose a single byte of data even when you are somehow locked out of the system. One button file recovery software gives you peace of mind that you will never lose your data in any circumstance.

Schedule updates

Automatic updates is one of greatest feature of Windows 10 which will help you remain updated, helping your computer guard against new viruses and running of old hardware in a better and efficient manner. All this at a pre-set time when you are not using your machine.

Kingston 8GB SDHC card

I bought a SD card at Staples. When I check their website, Kingston 8GB, 16GB, 32GB cards are on sale.
But, when I went to store, only one 8GB on the rack. So, I have no choice to get it. It is only $8.94 with tax. Kingston is a good brand. I have some other sd card or micro-sd with this brand. Its products have good quality and you should not worry about the data in it.

kingston_8gb_sd

See the front of card, I want to know the meaning of the standard.

SDHC
The Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) format, defined in Version 2.0 of the SD specification, supports cards with capacities up to 32 GB. The SDHC trademark is licensed to ensure compatibility.

SDHC cards are physically and electrically identical to standard-capacity SD cards (SDSC). The major compatibility issues between SDHC and SDSC cards are the redefinition of the Card-Specific Data (CSD) register in Version 2.0, and the fact that SDHC cards are shipped preformatted with the FAT32 file system.

Host devices that accept SDHC cards are required to accept SDSC cards. However, host devices designed for SDSC do not recognize SDHC or SDXC memory cards, although some devices can do so through a firmware upgrade. Older operating systems require patches to support SDHC. For instance, Microsoft Windows XP before SP3 requires a patch to support access to SDHC cards. Windows Vista SP1 also requires a later service pack.
