Fun with Google Chrome

Chrome is becoming one of the most preferred browser among the people. Playing with chrome is also full of fun. Here are the tricks playing with chrome: 

1. Create desktop and Start menu shortcuts to web apps such as Gmail – go to Gmail.com and then select Create application shortcuts… from the Page Control menu (in the top-right corner of your browser – it looks like a page with the corner folded over). Now choose where you want to place your shortcut. This works for other Google apps such as Calendar and Documents, and other services such as Windows Live Hotmail.

2. Control + Shift + N opens an ‘incognito’ window – sites you view in this window won’t appear in your history and cookies served by sites in this window will be deleted when the window is closed.

3. You can open a link in an incognito window by right-clicking the link and selecting Open link in incognito window.

4. Alt Home loads your Google Chrome home page, with thumbnails of your most visited sites shown in the active tabbed window.

5. Control T opens a new tab. You can drag tabs around to change their order or drag a tab out of the window into its own window.

6. Control Shift T opens your most recently closed tab. Press the key combination again to open the tab closed before that one. Google Chrome remembers the last 10 tabs you’ve closed.

7. Jump to different open tabs using Control 1Control 2Control + 3, etc.Control + 9 takes you to the last tab.

8. Control Tab lets you cycle through your open tabs in order.

9. Control Shift Tab cycles through your tabs in the opposite order.

10. As with Firefox 3, you can drag a link onto a tab to open it in that tab, or drop it between two tabs to open a new tab in that position.

11. To bookmark a site click the star on the left of the address bar and then select a folder to add it to.

12. Control +B hides the Google Chrome bookmarks bar. Press Control Bto bring it back again.

13. Right-click or hold down the back button and you’ll get a drop-down list of sites to go back through. Show Full History, at the bottom of the list, opens a new tab with your full browser history.

14. Control H is a faster way to bring up the History page.

15. You can delete history for chosen days by scrolling to the day you want to delete and clicking Delete history for this day on the right-hand side of the window.

16. Control J brings up your Downloads page.

17. To clear an item from your Downloads page, right-click an entry and select Remove.

18. Press Control K or Control E to search from the address bar. Once pressed, you’ll see a ? symbol appear in the address bar and you can simply enter your search query and hit Return.

19. Right-click the top of the browser window and select Task manager to see how much memory different tabs and plug-ins are using. Highlight one and click End process to stop it running.

20. Shift Escape is a quicker way to bring up the Google Chrome Task manager.

24. A three-second diversion: type about:internets. (Only works in Windows XP.)

25. Edit any web page – right-click a page and select Inspect element. Now edit the HTML source code and hit Return to view the changes.

26. To make Google Chrome your default browser, click the Tools button (in the right-hand corner of the browser window – a spanner icon). SelectOptions, click the Basics tab and then click the Make Google Chrome my default browser button.

27. To delete cookies, go to Tools Options Under the Hood. Scroll down to the Security section, and click Show cookies. Now you can click Remove all or remove individual cookies.

28. To clear more data such as the Google Chrome browsing history and cache, click the Tools icon and select Clear browsing data…

29. To clear the most visited web sites that appear on your Google Chrome start page, you must clear your browsing history using the method above.

Fun with Notepad

Notepad is the default text editor in the Microsoft Windows OS. Many people prefer alternatives to notepad such as Notepad++, but did you know that notepad can do much more than just view and edit text ? Notepad is not only used for coding ppurpose but one can also enjoy having fun with it. I’ll teach you how to do so.

1. Log Trick

Everyone wanted to make his/her own digital diary so that he can write his day experience. But do we know that this feature is inbuilt in Windows? Notepad can be used so.

  • Open Notepad
  • TYpe “.LOG
  • Save it as LOG.txt

Now when you open notepad, the date and time will automatically be inserted. Write anything you want and the date and time is auto inserted. Your own Diary is ready!

2. Open a file using notepad

Here is a simple trick to open any file or program with notepad.

Open notepad and type the following:

Start path of file

Then save the file as Shortcut.bat
Please note that the file type should be kept as ALL FILES while saving it as a .bat file.

Change path of file with your actual file path. For example if you have a file called run with an extension .exe in the folder TEST in C:\ drive, then your path should be something like this: C:\TEST\run.exe

If you want to open some complicated programs such as Firefox, then use this code:

START /d “path of folder” program.extension

Change path of folder with the actual path of the folder, and put the name of the program with its extension. For example if you have a file called run with an extension of .exe in the folder TEST in C:\ drive, then your code should be something like this: START /d “C:\TEST” run.exe
