Technology Changed Our Lives

Education System

Education is a broad field but if we take only a single aspect that is the way of learning then we can come across with great difference that how it has changed our life. For instance, when we were young, it was so hard for us to have a good education along with the variety of examples, and we used to go to buy different expensive books just for the sake of limited topics for making notes and can have good marks in our exams. However, in this technological world, it has become very easy to access different topics on the world of the internet in the very short span of time which also can also be shared with the friends on social media

Business System

In the ancient time, it was too difficult to give advertisement of newly launched business with outdated sources such as pasting posters on the wall, distributing the pamphlet to people in a busy market, etc. However, in this contemporary world, technology has made very easy for sharing advertisement of our business at different areas such as on internet sites, on social media, on big LCD’s at busy roads, etc. So, this is how our life has changed due to technical assistance and we can easily promote our business in no time.

Medical Department

Besides the field of business, Medical Department is at its peak just because of technology. In early life, it was the only Malaria, a fatal disease, because of that many people lost their lives, but now this Malaria which is caused by Plasmodium can easily be treated without any risk. Similarly, this medical science is working efficiently and it has diagnosed innumerable ways to live a secure life than earlier. Therefore, technology is the only liable course which has changed our life.

Removing PC Clutter

1.) Get rid of any unnecessary files or programs that are on your hard drive. This requires a little homework on your part. You’ll need to set aside the time to sit down and actually take a look at all of the files on your PC and delete what you don’t need. A few things to do periodically for optimal performance is to run a disk cleanup, use your system file checker, and defragment your hard drive.

2.) Organize all of your files and folders. Once you’ve deleted everything you don’t need, take a look at what’s left. Is there some way you could organize these in nice categorical folders, so that it’s easier to retrieve them later on? For example, you could create a few folders underneath your My Documents folder, and give then names such as: My Journal, My TV Shows, My Videos, My Business, My Songs, My JobFind, etc. You could then place all respective files underneath these neatly organized folders. You can also take advantage of many of the folders already supplied to you by Microsoft Windows, such as My Pictures and My Music.

3.) Install adware and spyware programs. I don’t think I need to stress how important it is to run antivirus and spyware software. I personally like McAffee because of its wide range of protection services, but Norton AntiVirus works great as well.

4.) Delete unnecessary shareware and freeware files. It’s very important to keep your hard drive as clean and organized as possible. Remember that shareware and freeware can potentially be harmful to your computer (viruses!), depending upon which source you received your shareware from.

5.) Delete unnecessary emails and take control of spam. By now, you know to have antivirus software installed on your PC. That’s a must, and will protect you if you should happen to open emails that have viruses attached to them. Before you open any of your emails, check to be sure you know the sender, and that there are no .zip or .exe attachments. Be very careful about opening files with attachments, especially from senders you don’t know.

Faster Browsing

Internet surfing

For searching something, search engines are being used. However, if you know a Windows trick, then searching for information on the Net may become easy, all you need to do is simply locate the address bar in Internet Explorer and write in the phrase that you want to search on the Internet. Here it is important to remember the Internet Explorer (IE) recognizes a phrase and not a single word. If it’s a single word, then Internet, Explorer assumes it as a domain name and attempts to create a URL in its place. However key in a few words and IE will run your phrase through a search engine on Microsoft’s Web site.

If you want to search for a single word then you should put a question mark at the beginning of the line to tell IE that this is a search keyword. The same thing applies to the Netscape Communicator also and searching the Web is as easy using the Netscape as it is with IE.

Transferring files

Another common use for which the computers are being used is for transferring the files over the Internet. Normally FTP client is being used for transferring files, which is a common application among the Internet users. However, very few persons realize the power of Windows.

You do not need a separate FTP client for transferring the files. The basic Windows constituent IE already has a feature of FTP. Thus if you type an FTP address in the address box of any Explorer view, whether on the Internet or while browsing your own hard disk, you can go to the site and be able to use the window as an FTP client.

Create link in MS Word

Windows users sometimes complain of working on too many applications for a single work, for example, work related to the Web. However, this is probably due to the ignorance of the persons as all major applications have features that arc quite universal in nature. Take for example, MS Word. Most of us know about MS Word as the most wonderful word processor. However, quite a few of us know that it is a good tool for Web based applications also. The Web-based functions of the MS Word are worth trying as it gives you endless features. One such feature is the option of creating a link to a Web page in a Word document.

Thus if you are creating a MS Word document, you can create a link to a Web page or other HTML document rather than just including the address in text. The procedure for this is simple first copy the address (URL) to which you want to link, then select the word, phrase or sentence in your document that you want to create as the link. Now on the Insert menu in Word, click hyperlink and then in link to file or URL, paste the address by pressing Ctrl + V. This will create a link to a Web page in the Word document.

However you can use your computer for purposes other than the Internet also and make better use of it. Normally we all crave for faster performance. In a Majority of the cases you do not require a replacement or up gradation as you can enhance the performance of your existing computer running Windows.

Manage hard disk

The first thing in this regard is better management of the hard disk; it has been discussed many a times in the article on tips and tricks that you can manage your hard disk better by defragging it regularly. However, there are some more steps, which should be performed before you defrag your hard disk in order to optimize the performance of your hard disk.

These steps are:

  • Delete the IE temporary files and history regularly before defragging your hard disk.
  • It is also important to delete all TMP and BAK files present in the hard disk as these files are not generally required and unnecessarily consume the hard disk.
  • Normally you will find *.TMP files in the TEMP directory or WINDOWSTEMP directories. Thus you must locate these directories and delete the aforesaid files.
  • As a next step defrag your hard disk without the swap-file. The instructions for this can be found at defragmenting the swap file. It is a standard feature of Windows 98 as per which it has a built-in utility called Disk cleanup.

You can run it from either Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup or directly run CLEANMGR.EXE. This is also an important feature of the Windows that takes care of all deleted files and other junk files as this feature deletes them as a part of disk cleaning exercise.

Use Address bar

Windows makes your work so easy that it can actually take the unnecessary load off you. For example, if you are a Windows 98 user, then you can use browser for purposes other than browsing the Net.

Did you know that you could use the address bar to run programs on your computer?

This is very much possible as all you need to do is just type the program name, including its path its location, you may type c:msofficewinwordwinword.exe. This will open MS Word depending upon its location.

Use Google Maps Offline

The process is identical on both iOS and Android. Before we dive into the process, take a moment to visit the App Store on your iOS device, or the Play store on your Android device and check for any available updates for Google Maps. The methods mentioned in this article works on the updated versions of Google Map.

After verifying you have the latest version, launch Google Maps on your respective device and search for the area you’d like to save for offline access.

Google Maps will then show the area you find, with the name being displayed along the bottom of the screen. You will need to download the area of interest before being able to take advantage of Google Maps offline. This is what we mean when we say things must be done “proactively.” The map area must be downloaded before leaving the safety of your city’s secure connection.

You’ll then be tasked to adjust the area to be saved via panning and zooming around, making sure to pay attention to the size limit alert along the top of the screen. Of course, there is a massive amount of information when downloading nearly two cities and everything in between them. Be ready to sacrifice plenty of storage space for your maps. These can take up to 1GB, depending on the area. Additionally, you will get a glimpse of the local weather conditions, pictures, hotels, shops, restaurants and navigation options. You will even get a travel estimate to that spot based on your current location.

Tap on the name. Next, tap on the three-dot icon in the top-right corner of your screen. Select and then save an offline map. There is a way to download this data to an SD card, though, which is a relief. Simply go to Menu > Offline Areas > Settings > Storage Preferences and switch “Device” to “SD card.”

If the mapped area is deemed too large, you’ll need to zoom in and repeat the process for the area left out. Once you’re happy, tap on Save and give the offline map a name. To access your saved maps, slide you the menu draw and select My Places from the list of options. Scroll to the bottom of the page, where you should find any offline maps still stored on your device.

Keep in mind that any saved maps will only remain on your device for 30 days. This is mostly because the world changes nearly daily. Maps are dynamic and require updating. What happens when a new street is added, or an old one is closed? Maybe a new restaurant opened up in town. Google wants you to have an updated version of your maps when offline. Presumably, after that, the app will purge a saved map to clear up space on your device.

You can also do the automatic updating with the Google map nowadays. Just go to the Offline Maps settings and activate automatic updates. This will ensure your offline maps are regularly updated when expired. You can even choose only to be updated when using Wi-Fi, ensuring your precious gigabytes don’t go to waste.

Things to Consider when Using Offline Google Maps

There are drawbacks to offline Google Maps. Here are some things missing from offline maps that are available in live Google Maps:
• Public transit routes are not available in Offline maps.
• Bike and walking routes are not available.
• Live traffic will not be employed.
• Travel estimates will not be as accurate.
• Routes can’t be modified (avoidance is not an option).
