How to enable Windows 11 Taskbar on Windows 10?

0

Windows 11 Taskbar stands out as one of the major refinements. We already know that Windows 10X is no longer in development, and Microsoft is about to announce something major on June 25. According to leaks and rumors, Microsoft will use this event to showcase Windows 11. Although Windows Operating System has already leaked, not everyone enjoys using a beta version that’s yet to be released.

This article is the right one if you want to see what Windows 11 Taskbar looks like. Note that, we don’t have the new start menu for Windows 10, but we have a workaround to give a modern look to the taskbar. 

We can easily recreate this look with the following steps, and we do not have to install any external applications. 

  • To begin, you must unlock the Taskbar. It’s simple and you can do it in two ways.

a) You can use the combination of (Windows key + I) and type taskbar in the Windows Settings. Toggle the first option to unlock the taskbar. By default, it is ON. Make sure; we turn the toggle OFF.

b) You can right-click on the taskbar, and click on “Lock the taskbar” (make sure the option is unchecked and doesn’t have a right tick mark symbol)

  • Next, locate the mouse pointer on “Toolbars” by right-clicking the taskbar again. Enable “Links” in the overflow menu. The Links option will appear on the bottom right corner of the taskbar, next to the system tray.

  • Rest is easy! Dragging the “Links Option” from right to left will do the trick. In the taskbar, you will notice that the icons have shifted to the far right in place of the “Links” section. Move the small horizontal divider (two parallel lines) on the left of the taskbar buttons to the “Links” screen.

  • Right-click on the taskbar again, and uncheck the show title and text to hide the Link Option. The customization will become cleaner and the windows 11 taskbar alike.
  • After you drag the divider, you will notice that icons will expand to the center. You can pin the icons in there and you can see the opened applications like the regular behavior on the taskbar.

  • Center your icons perfectly, and then lock the taskbar again by right-clicking the taskbar, and selecting lock taskbar again. As soon as you lock the taskbar, the Divider will disappear.

Microsoft is shutting down Internet Explorer Web Browser Officially: a digital graveyard

0

Internet Explorer web browser will stop serving certain versions of the Windows 10 operating system on June 15, 2022. Microsoft says that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Edge Browser. Microsoft announced the public release of Edge based on Chromium on January 15, 2020. From this point on, Microsoft Edge has constantly improved the experience compared to its competitors. Edge offers Microsoft users a smooth experience that sets them apart from the rest of its competition. It is the prime reason for discontinuing IE.

Internet Explorer Revolutionized Internet

Microsoft launched Internet Explorer in 1995. As a child, I owned my first personal computer in 1999, and I remember how revolutionary the Internet Explorer web browser was at the time. Today’s Digital Graveyard (IE) was once a common tool installed on every computer in the world.

Twitter universe

There is a lot of humor in the Twitter universe as people make jokes about Microsoft shutting down Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer’s market share started dwindling between 2006 and 2009. With the success of Firefox and Google Chrome, the success of Internet Explorer faded. This decision took Microsoft a long time to come to, but this may be the last joke about IE amongst internet users.

Death of the Legacy

A product from my era is fading away, which makes me sad. My mind wanders back to the old AOL, MSN, BBM, Orkut, and other vintage software I used as a kid. Nature demands change, and every day of our life is a step toward a new revolutionary idea. The next generation of Web browsers is Microsoft Edge, a fast, reliable, and web-based application-friendly browser.

It is time to acknowledge the change and encourage businesses to switch completely to Edge. Enterprises can benefit greatly from the Edge browser. Edge is even better than Chrome, but we will discuss Chrome vs Edge another time. The only thing that matters is all your love, devotion, and stories tied to Internet Explorer Web Browser. Is there anything you would like to share? Please let us know in the comments section below.

How to use Google Chat in a free Gmail account – Work From Home Toolkit 2021

0

Google’s I/O 2021 will take place on May 18. Before the event, Google has launched an additional feature on Gmail with access to Chat and Rooms for free Google account holders. Google announced this feature last year for enterprise workspace users. As long as it’s free, I’m open to using it. I see no reason for people (Youtubers and Bloggers) not using it either.

Gmail free account holders can access this feature through the web, iOS, and Android. There are separate instructions for Web and Mobile. Scroll down a bit for more information.

I prefer Google Chat and Rooms integrated into one application with email and meetings than having Microsoft Teams and Outlook separate. Microsoft Teams is undoubtedly more powerful, but it’s a hassle to open two separate windows for completing the task. The Gmail add-ons will make working from home even more convenient.

GMAIL 2021 Add-on’s

The new GMAIL interface is divided into four parts: Meet, Mail, Chat, and Rooms. The features are as simple as their name says for them. Google Chat lets you communicate with your colleagues, the Room lets you share files, chats, and tasks, and Meet allows you to hold video conferences.

On Android and iOS, you can find these features in the bottom navigation bar. However, Web versions are simply straightforward. For instance, it has all these features stacked on the left. The chevron icon allows for hiding. You can open a conversation by tapping the room icon in the bottom right corner. Rooms take over the standard message list and open in full-screen mode. Meet allows you to join Google meetings in a separate pop-up window or tab.

The feature is still rolling out for free accounts, and you need to update your iOS and Android applications to take advantage of it. Before upgrading, be aware of possible bugs.

How to activate new Gmail with chat and rooms Feature

Android and iOS

  1. Click Settings in the Navigation Drawer.
  2. Tap personal Gmail account 
  3. Check “Chat” in the General section.
  4. If you prefer, click “Try it.”
  5. Gmail app relaunches with tutorial and prompts to turn off notifications from standalone Google Chat app (if installed)

Web

  1. Visit GMAIL and navigate to Settings> See All Settings.
  2. Instead of “Classic Hangouts,” select “Google Chat (Early Access).” 
  3. Navigate to Chat and Meet.
  4. A confirmation pop-up will appear (confirm it).

Apple MacBook Air 2021 renders are real

0

The Apple MacBook Air 2021 is on its way. Yes, that’s right, I’m referring to the MacBook Air 2021 and not the MacBook Pro 14-inches. The leaks are hard to predict this year, and it all seems confusing yet exciting. Apple is keeping the keynotes interesting this year, and this new release is even more exciting.

Apple MacBook Air 2021 in Blue, Silver, Purple, Rose Gold, Orange, Yellow, and Green Color?

We expected Apple would introduce a new 14-model with the next-gen M2 chipset. Jon Prosser says that the new MacBooks will be a redesign in Chessy, but I do not expect them to have the M2 chip inside. Leaks suggest that the new redesign will come in the new colors as the 24-inches iMac along with white screen bezels. The design is certainly the final version. One of Jon Prosser’s videos claims he gets the leaks, and he is allowed to share the renders. His method is to collaborate with the render maker to create the renderings of the actual device. These leaks result from Jon’s collaboration with Ian Zelbo (@RedersbyIan), and show the new flat design for the MacBook.

The least chances are that the device can be the new MacBook Pro. The new redesign draws inspiration from the well-built Pixel Go with its really large rubber pads. These renders show a single USB-C port, but that may not be true. We expect Apple to include a Micro-SD slot, a magnetic charger, an HDMI port, and several extra USB-C ports. Another possibility is that Apple reserved these extra ports for its high-end models with 16-inch displays.


It is strange to me that the display has white bezels. Black looks elegant, and black bezels are more appropriate. To top it off further, the keyboard also matches in white and has the same layout as the current model. I would love to know what color bezels you prefer on your laptop – white or black?

Battlegrounds Mobile India releasing on 10 June [Update: May 18]

We are big fans of Battlegrounds Mobile India (PUBG) gameplay, so we’re following its release closely, just like everyone else. Krafton teased Battlegrounds Mobile India on 2021-05-07. Today, the company posted on Facebook one more teaser, and a source confirmed it on Twitter.

Mr. Gurjeet Sandhu is relatively new to Twitter, but everything he posts about this game turns out to be true. His latest post suggests the launch date of the game will be June 10. If this is true, we’re not really far away from fighting the royal ground again.

Battlegrounds Mobile India pre-registrations are now open for Indian users

We cannot confirm June 10 as the official release date until Krafton confirms it. Despite PUBG’s popularity, there are many other wonderful games that everyone should try. A few alternative titles include Apex Legends, Fortnite Battle Royale, Last Man Standing, and COD. Have you played any of these AAA mobile titles? Share your opinion in the comment section below.

[Update: 18th May 2021]

The pre-registration for BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA is now open, and you can register it here from this official link. It’s available only for Android users, so check out the Google Play Store.

Krafton encourages Indian users to stay safe and wear masks in India. The company does not talk about PUBG in the name of this game to avoid a Government ban. There are specific rewards for fans to claim if they sign up. Users from India need to pre-register for the game to receive rewards.

Microsoft allegedly discontinued the development of Windows 10X in favor of the Sun Valley Project

0

Windows 10 is the most popular operating system in the world, and Microsoft has just made it accessible for as little as 300$ to purchase a computer equipped with Windows 10. A laptop at this price is certainly not a joke, and the company’s big competition is Chrome OS in this field.

Students may look for a laptop with fewer features but quick to open Microsoft Office and other school-related software. Chrome OS comes in handy to fill in this space. It runs smoothly on weak hardware and gives beginner users the best of both worlds.

Microsoft recognizes this, and it is afraid of this competition. There’s a silver lining, though. Microsoft still leads in development support, and it can still compete with Google’s Chrome OS

Google’s Chrome OS was the inspiration for Microsoft to announce Windows 10X in 2019. This simplified version of Windows 10 is perfect for beginners. It runs well on entry-level laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Microsoft originally intended to introduce this lighter version of Windows 10 along with Surface new in 2021.

An anonymous source told Petri that Microsoft has delayed the release of Surface Neo, and the company will not ship the new operating system this year. As a result, Microsoft may put this entire project on hold as they focus on improving Windows 10.

Microsoft may consider many factors, including the macOS Big Sur with M1. Petri reports that Microsoft intends to integrate Windows 10X with Windows 10 Sun Valley in the coming months. The Windows 10 Sun Valley edition will feature a significant design overhaul, and it might also bring native support for ARM devices to the operating system.

Microsoft must decide which direction to take. Does the company need Windows 10X, or does it need to update Windows to run on ARM processors as Apple did? I hope they realize the complexity of this problem before it’s too late. 

Battlegrounds Mobile India registration opens soon officially

0

Fans of PUBG in India can look forward to exciting news now. It is official! The game has returned to India. Now that PUBG is back again in India, it is being rebranded as Battlegrounds Mobile India by Krafton.

An official blog post from the company states that BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA will launch on mobile devices as a free-to-play experience. This will crown it again as the best AAA multiplayer title on mobile gaming. It will also get exclusive features targeted at Indian markets, like outfits of attire, etc. This new title will be available for both Android and iOS devices and will be exclusive to India only.

According to Krafton, the game has its own mobile Esports platform with Indian content and tournaments. Also, he expresses the privacy of Indian users for this game. Battlegrounds Mobile India will work in compliance with all Indian rules and regulations to ensure data protection.

As part of Krafton’s plans to reinvigorate their mobile gaming business in the world’s largest market, the company committed $100 million in November. Based on SensorTower data, the company had over 175 million downloads for the original title, so I think this strategy is wise.

The development community and Data Scientists can easily identify that India is an enormous market for Mobile gaming. However, a ban on PUBG by the government has decimated the market size. Rupantar Guha estimates the Battleground Mobile India market (associate project manager, thematic research, Global Data) to be worth more than $1 billion in 2021.

Let’s now answer the most important question. When can you play Battleground Mobile in India? Unfortunately, we don’t have an answer for this right now. Krafton says that the company has a separate pre-registration timeline before the launch. Our prediction is that the servers will be ready soon, looking forward to reviewing the changes once the gameplay is available.

Which dating app works best in Canada: Tinder, Bumble, or Hinge?

Ask someone which dating application works best online in Canada, and they are likely to mention Bumble. We tested some dating sites to see which is the best. It was Bumble, Tinder, and Hinge that competed.

Tinder is getting Dirty?

Each application has its unique features, but only one stands out as the winner. Honestly, it is hard to choose the best app, but there is one that will try to trick you into buying premium features by using dirty tricks. My question has to do with Tinder. The concept of swiping is fun, but there has been a push to make it into a super-paid business model (Premium Tinder Packages). Have you noticed that your Tinder account gets stocked with 10 people liking your profile? I am sure you do!

I’d love to see Tinder combine the Plus, Gold, and Platinum packages into a single package. I also say that they need to stop using dirty tricks to entice customers to buy the paid packages. People themselves need to figure out precisely how they want to use the application. For example, people won’t have used Facebook if it was a paid application. Eventually, Tinder may become even better by offering just a few premium features for free. We need a dating app focusing solely on matching lovers.

Bumble Biz, Bumble Date, or Bumble BFF?

Bumble uses the same approach but is doing a better job of not spamming people. The application is one of the most popular dating apps. What mode did you use: Bumble Biz, Bumble Date, or Bumble BFF?

In my experience, most people on Bumble are looking for casual dating or casual friendship, neither of which are familiar with the Bumble BFF or Bumble Date modes. Although this feature is free, please Bumble! please include features such as the Travel mode for the free account and limit the eligible swipes to 20. Feature development takes a long time and not allowing everyone access kills the purpose.

Women to make the first move.

Bumble stands out because women have the option to start communication. This feature sure is promising, and even if you match with a woman, she can decide to start the conversation or not. It seems like a safer community for single women to find their partners.

Hinge – the dating app meant to be deleted

Let’s talk about Hinge for a moment. Among the three, only this dating application serves the purpose of looking for a love interest. According to the company’s tagline, ” the dating app meant to be deleted.” You can connect with people using this app if you use it genuinely. The Hinge-free version provides the best features but also allows for a limited amount of likes and dislikes. With Hinge, your chances of finding someone you’re compatible with are significantly higher than with the other two. Hinge allows users to send between 5-10 likes per post, while the latter two allow between 30-50 swipes. Quality over quantity is Hinge’s enormous advantage in this case.

Show your humbleness and gentleness by sending a rose.

Hinge offers the service of letting you pick out women to send you a rose. On the Standouts page, you can choose women whose profiles have attracted the most likes. (To like this woman, you need to have roses in your pocket).

You can still find your perfect mate using Bumble and Tinder. But, Hinge is your best bet as you can meet people who also want to get rid of dating apps. Hinge trumps Tinder and Bumble in terms of true companionship. Features like Travel mode may make people want to fake themselves. Finding genuine commitment is the sole purpose of Hinge. Let us know your thoughts below.
