Well … it happens sometimes to simply installed to many additional new fonts on my Windows. Sometimes I install fonts from internet other times, some programs will ask for their own fonts.

After I installed all this fonts I start to experience a lot of problems with the way some websites and applications were showing information (strange scripts or ugly fonts). The problem was that I also replaced some of the default fonts and the only solution was to restore my windows font folder to its default form. For that I followed this steps: Read More
Today I recovered my Windows 10 laptop and I was surprised to see that Microsoft is pushing up his Photo App replacing the old “Windows Photo Viewer”. Because I don’t like the new app and I tried to associate my image files to the old app. The problem is that Microsoft is not offer you this option any more.
The Windows Photo Viewer is hidden deep down it’s new Windows 10 operating system and is kinda hard to access it. You actually need to change some Windows registry and the simplest way to run the desired .reg file from tenforums.
Hello, in the last 3 weeks I worked on getting MacOS 10.11.5 (El Capitan) running on my HP laptop. This was a success and now I am writing you from my MacOS – fully functional except the wireless/bluetooth card.

Seems like there is a SW issue with 64bit iPhones on dealing with time if you set the date/time to Jan. 1, 1970/00:00:00. iOS is using Unix time to track time. This means that the time on your iPhone is defined as the number of seconds passed from Unix Epoch (January 1st, 1970 at UTC) until now.

Setting the time to Unix Epoch (January 1st, 1970 at UTC) seems to be a bad idea and various trusted sources confirmed this rumor. Read More

I am a Starcraft player, I really enjoy playing it when my time permits that. Sometimes, when I exit the game I got a black screen doing nothing. The game window is freezed and nothing can be done. When I press CTRL+ALT+DEL the option screen appears and choosing task manager will normally open the task manager. The single problem is the full screen Starcraft window that is placed on top of all other application, including task manager.
In this way, there is a big problem closing/ending the Starcraft program/game because you are not able to minimize it or see the apps behind. And it seems I am not the only one with this problem …
What I usually do when this happens is: Read More
