Control UAC And Make It More User Friendly : Creating Shortcuts For Administrative Mode

UAC is clearly a great security and privacy fundamental base in Windows OS. It prevent unwanted access in system files or any other places where user can harm your System. This provides a great option for keeping things well and secret.But sometime good things in certain circumstances will not be suitable for use, like UAC prompts. It's really troubled when you often need to run a particular tool that requires administrator mode in order to run, and you don’t have the access or you are getting trouble to get in Administrator mode. It will constantly pop up a dialog requesting for Administrative password when you are trying to make system changes. Fortunately, there’s some way to make it more comfortable. There’s a hack that can create an Administrative shortcut mode which won’t prompt for UAC. Here, I am going to share this with you. Well, there are mainly two things you need to do.

Your Uninstaller For Windows : HowTo Remove Any App Completely

I don’t know how many software you have installed in your PC and and how many of them you have found useful. You probably uninstall unnecessary apps from your PC often (You should). How do you do it? Well, from my experience, most of the users’ remove those apps by using Windowsdefault uninstaller. And what about other’s? Some of them DELETE them! You can’t just delete an installed app (unless it’s a portable one) directly. And also using Windows default uninstaller isn’t a good solution. It leaves a lot of junks on your file folder as well as Registry. This might even make you PC to crash. So you should be careful with this.

ShapeShifter For Windows : A Cool And Light Replacement For Windows Clipboard

The clipboard acts as a temporary storage location for data that is copied to it by a computer user. The standard Windows Clipboard can only store one entry, which gets overwritten every time new data is copied. That makes some operations, where multiple sets of data need to be copied more complex than necessary. So have you ever faced this problem that you have to copy two, three (or more that) files/data from different place and Windows clipboard only stored one? So you have to copy it one by one. It has already killed a lot of my times. So I was agar for a replacement of this. But none of them looks great on my eye. It’s either to heavy to run often or it’s very dull in performance. And if everything is set, then it looks awfully boring to use. So I haven’t choose any of them.

But yesterday I came to know about ShapeShifter. ShapeShifter is a lightweight Windows Clipboard replacement that comes with a few extras that not all alternative clipboard managers offer. So I have decided to make a review and cover up this great app.

1st of all, I just want to say two things I like most about this app. One is, it’s really lightweight, even you can neglect it’s system resource use. And the other is it’s User Interface and Ease Of Use. The User Interface is so nice and cute! And it’s designed greatly so that the user don’t have do any extra steps. So this is a must app you should try.
