A Good Source for Formatting USB Keys

Today I want to share a good source for formatting USB keys. This was a highly useful free tool when I just received an extra travelling notebook which had a bad operating system. This tool allowed me to format a USB key, and then convert an ISO image over on that USB key so I could book the computer with this USB key in one of the USB ports on that new second hand computer.

As some of you may know I have been working with Linux before, so this was in no way any problem. Actually, it ensures that I can access a free - and legal - operating system when I travel back and forth, so it is a highly useful tool.

You may download this tool from this link:

Right-Click Problems Under Windows 10?

I had a problem with my pc. When I wanted to move files, I sometimes used the right-click option in my file manager. When that stopped working, I could still use Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+X to move and Ctrl+V to insert, but nonetheless, I was somewhat annoyed.

When searching forums for a solution, I came across MalWareBytes, and that scanner seems to do the trick. It's free, so go check it over at

Hope it helps you too. Have a nice weekend everyone. :-)

Putting an End to Scam Attempts

I'm quite sure many of you are tired of fake Facebook profiles and e-mail scam attempts. I have decided to send all such scam attempts to abuse departments. By doing so, you can disable some accounts being used for these scam attempts by making it far more difficult to continue this type of behavior.

WordPress 4.4 Soon Available

If you are a blogger, you will want to know that WordPress is now in beta3. That is very close to the first Release Candidate, so your current version is probably WordPress 4.3.1, which is the latest at the moment, and potentially, the new version should download to your site automatically.

You should remember to do occasional backups of your blog. I recommend you check this Backup plugin which is compatible all the way up the most recent version of WordPress, and is updated regularly. There was another plugin I used previously, but that hasn't been updated for more than two years, so obviously it's virtually worthless today, as there could be compatibility issues with new versions of WordPress.

Electronic Booking - Ideal for Everyone With a Blog

The plugin Appointments is quite simply amazing for everyone with a WordPress blog. It allows you to maintain an online diary/calendar, while also allowing others to set up bookings - everything in ONE location, and streamlined with the WordPress CMS system.

This could save anyone's day. :-)

Have a nice weekend all around the globe.

The Login Window on Windows 10

If you can't access your login screen where you enter your password on Windows 10, there is a simple way to get access to the password field when your mouse can't get to it. Press CTRL + ALT + DEL, and you will be able to enter your password.

Similarly, the power on and power off functions work much more smoothly than ever before, so Windows is again beginning to be an interesting operating system. Thanks, Microsoft, you must be praised when praise is due. :-)
