8 Skin Pack For Windows 7 Updated : Now With Mosaic & Metro UI

Previously we have shared Windows 8 customization Pack for a Windows 7 by hameddanger. It was a great tool indeed which changes from the boot menu to the shutting down (in a word everything) through a single click. Even I have used this for a long time. You can check my review fromhere. Now this too has been updated by the author with both 32-bit and 64-bit support. The biggest change is "Mosaic In Desktop" obviously which looks brilliantly like Windows 8. I definitely love this thing. Unlike other customization Pack, it allows a single installation which is simply great.


Create Up-To 10 Ubuntu-Like Virtual Desktop & Switch Between Them In Windows

Have you checked the 3-D Windows tab in Ubuntu? It is a great option to switch between multiple virtual desktops and also a cool one too. Now we are sharing Multi-Tabber here which can add up to 10 virtual desktop and switch between them immediately. Though it's not look like 3-D in Ubuntu, but it is a handy tool which can make your user experience with windows better and also help you to complete your tasks quickly and comfortably. Multi-Tabber is a small Windows software which will help you to add up to 10 additional virtual desktops. This is a useful tool for the people who always run many applications and sometimes they got busted with so many cluttered icons on system tray. So then Multi-Tabber can help them to arrange the running applications in a systematic way through some virtual desktop area and switch them immediately. The virtual tabs will appear just above the system icons on taskbar and will show numbers. You can switch by clicking on them. This can give your Windows PC a Ubuntu style work space-switching functionality.


Multi Commander is A Sleek And Perfect Replacement For Windows Explorer

If you're looking for an alternative for Windows Explorer, Multi Commander can be a good solution for you. It has both portable and installable package so you can make it as a perfect solution for home and workplace too. It is a tab-based file manager which allows you to choose either Windows Explorer mode or keyboard shortcut mode or your own custom mode. It has many regularly used buttons which makes it convenient for all users. You can apply basic file operation (like cut, copy, paste, rename, view, move etc.. The main feature which I like in Multi Commander is its auto unpacking/auto sorting files, customizable layout, search bar, FTP quick access and fast file browsing. It has more other features too, we'll discuss about it later. Multi Commander 1.10 contains over 180 changes according to the author, including a new Folder Tree feature, which adds a folder tree option to each of Multi Commander's two window panes. Also new in version 1.10 is customizable file colors based on the file name as well as a new column listing additional information from IMDB and RottenTomatoes.com for identifiable movies. So join us after the break for more information.


How To Enable/Disable System Tray Icon On Windows : Focusing On Registry

Yesterday one of my friends call me because the volume icon in the system tray of his PC has been disabled without any warning. So I have checked his PC. And I saw that everything is fine with the sound drive/Hartford installation. So I asked him what he have installed previously. And he said that he has installed a third party volume software and a craving for some time he found it useless. So he had uninstalled it and just after uninstallation, the volume icon has certainly been gone! I checked his registry for error and it seemed like everything okay to me. So I have decided to give the search for a solution, and after reading some softwares and tricks, I have decided to go through manual registry editing. And I had fixed this problem within a few minutes. I think I got the best solution for this problem. Without using any third party software to fix this (and create another problem) – it's better to do it manually. For those who don't have any idea about the registry editing, I have provided step-by-step, so you can do it easily.

CyberGhost VPN For Windows : Anonymous Private Browsing For Free

One of the biggest threat using Internet is undoubtedly privacy problem. Many of you must be searching for something that will protect you from privacy problem. This is because harmful websites attempt to log IP addresses for malicious purposes. As certain spyware applications and harmful codes require personal IP addresses to initiate attacks. Similarly, hackers try to use IP information in order to obtain home addresses, credit card information, social security numbers and bank account credentials. There are a lot of software/web service/VPN/proxy browser available to do this for you. But most of them are not suitable for everyone at all. Even they cannot be trusted too. And in most case, the trusted ones are not free – demanding a higher rate from you for protection. But there is a Windows software called CyberGhost VPN which will do this for free for you. This is a VPN service which is built for those users who just want to be secure, protect their data when connected in a public or untrusted network. The app gives you an offshore IP address and connects you to an anonymizing server to mask your real IP address and location, and then encrypts all of the internet traffic between you and the VPN service. CyberGhost VPN ensures that you are no longer transparent when surfing the net. If a CyberGhost VPN connection is activated all internet data traffic is routed via the annoymization server, No matter whether a browser, messenger, file-sharing client or incoming e-mail traffic is involved. There are very few trusted free software available for this case. So you should give a try the software.

Internet And Others

Add A Progress Bar On Firefox To Show Page Loading Status

Firefox is definitely the most powerful Internet browser. It's the most famous browser too. The best thing of Firefox obviously is its add-on support. It really has a big store of plug in which can make something unusual actions. If you are an opera fan, and definitely you have missed the Progress bar over the loading tab of Firefox. You should now be happy because there is an extension available for Firefox which will show progress bar while loading a page. Browsers have long since done away with status bars in favor of progress circles. What these circles tell you is that the page is loading what it doesn’t tell you is how much of the page has loaded. In other words, when you use your browser, you just know that it’s doing something but you don’t know how much longer it’s going to take to get that something done. Progress Bar On Tab is a Firefox extension that brings back the status bar but positions it on the tabs rather than as a complete bar at the bottom of the window so that it serves its purpose but does not take up any space. We have found it very interesting and useful too, so here we are showing this amazing Firefox extension.


How To change/disable The New Facebook Photo Viewer & And Switch To Classic One

Facebook had changed their photo viewing style quite a few days ago. Yeah it's true that this gives a huge relief for some members.

I think Facebook is going to disable this feature or at least side-by-side at the previous feature because of poor user of response. But yet you can switch to previous photo viewer by following some tricks. It's not so hard to be done. So let's get back and do it now.
