Computer Tips and Tricks

Hmm the other day, while I was seeing my friends use computer, I felt myself being struck with knife on my chest saying, whats happening, what are they doing, and then I felt its not their mistake, its just that they dont know what I know, and same goes the other way.

No hard feelings, but here are some tips and tricks of computer, that I know, some maybe dumb, some you may know, some you do not, choice is yours, if you want to take it or leave it.

Simple things first,
How to Lock a computer (Shortcut key):
First, you need to have an account created with password, only then you can just click the Windows Key+L.

How to create an account would be the next question:
Go to Start->Control Panel->User Accounts->Create a User Account.
Give the name you desire, the password, and the privilege’s for that account.
This can be done only if you are the administrator of the computer.

Notepad Tricks:
Text Change to error code
Open a Note pad
Type- bush hid the facts
Save it anywhere you wish on your system with any name.
Close the notepad, and open that file again, and see the change.

Reason :
The sentence you type is a 4-3-3-5 combination, which is not valid in UNICODE which is used to make notepad ! Try with any other of your own statement, with the same number of letters combination

Create a Log FileOpen Notepad
Type .LOG on the first line, and then press Enter to move to the next line.
Save the file with any name, anywhere, and close notepad.
When you next open the file, note that the date and time have been appended to the end of the log, immediately preceding the place where new text can be added. You can use this functionality to automatically add the current date and time to each log entry.

Notepad knew about 9/11/2001
Amazing thing but true !
The flight number which hit the WTC in New York was Q33N !

See it yourself :
1. Open Notepad
2. Type : Q33N
3. Now, go to Format menu
4. Choose Font.
5. Now, change the size to ’72’
6. Now, change the font to ‘Wingdings’
7. See what is displayed !

Word Tricks:
Open a blank Word document, Type =rand() press Enter and wait for 30 seconds.

Amazing na, now try this,
Open another blank Word document, Type =rand(200,99) press Enter and wait for 30 seconds.

So now you got it, you can keep on changing the numbers inside the paranthesis or brackets, and you’ll see the difference.
