There can be multiple things I can talk about. Believe me I do talk about a lot of other stuff. But at the moment this blog is going to be my repository for everything I need from time to time, save in some nook or corner an then forget where I kept it until I need them again.
Be assured, it is all gonna be tech savvy. Kudos to beginnings.
P.S. I love the font on this blog, don’t you?
Here is a fun thing I learned today! I have been very dependent on add-ons in my web browsers for taking screen shots of web pages. But I suddenly realized there must be a developer console command for it. And there was! (Since Firefox16!) It was so cool! Here is is!
In Mozilla Firefox, just Press Shift+F2 to open the developer console or go to or go to Tools > Web Developer > Developer Toolbar. And simply type:
>>screenshot --clipboard --fullpage
And Voila! Ya have the complete screen shot on your clipboard!!Definitely a handy tool for me!
Until my next discovery!
This one is for Windows 8/8.1 which I am using. Not sure how this would work on the other Windows OS, although the idea perhaps remains the same?
The Individual User Lock Screen for a user can be changed through the Windows Charms Bar > Change PC Settings.
The one I am talking about is the lock screen when you have multiple users created on a single Windows 8/8.1 system and they are all logged off. Didn’t come to my mind there would be one!
So here is how this goes:
The Sign Out Screen is stored in:
To change this default one, here is how I learnt to proceed:
- Go to folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows
- Right click on SystemData >Properties>Security>Advanced>Change
- Select your user name (You must be in Administrators group), and Add it.
- Tick on “Replace owner on subcontainers and objects“, click Apply >OK
- Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData\S1518\ReadOnly\LockScreen_Z
You will see the default image(s) in this folder, To view them:
- Right click on it>Properties>Security>Edit>Add
- Select your User Name and Add.
- Replace the image with an image of your choosing, just make sure that they have the same names and resolution as shown in LockScreen_Z.
- IMPORTANT: After swapping the images, Right click on image>Properties>Securities>Edit and make sure the SYSTEM is in the user list with permission shown below:
Sign out and Voila! There is the image you were looking for to sooth your eyes!
So at times, I set my desktop wallpaper and forget where I kept the image.
Go about this path to find it on Windows 8/Windows 8.1 :-
It is crazy of how little things can turn around your day huh!
