    Windows 11 Pet Peeves

    I always pin task manager to my taskbar anyway, no matter what version of Windows.

    Windows11: 21 services you can safely turn off

    +1 1337x is great. Just make sure to use a decent ad blocker or else you'll often get slammed with malicious ads (incl. gambling ads and even more inappropriate stuff) with every click.

    Saving

    If you have to trouble saving to the C drive or any non-user area (such as a system folder), and your program doesn't let you, the only way to fix that is to right click on the program icon, click properties, go to the compatibility tab, check the option to run as administrator, and then click...

    What is the best way to torrent?

    I use a two-hop VPN when torrenting. Yes, you read that right, I daisychain two high speed VPN servers together to hide myself even better.

    How to hide any files in a photo (stealth-zip photo doctoring method)

    Before you start, you'll need an image to hide your files in and a zip file containing the files. Put all this in a dedicated folder. Within that folder, clear your address bar, type "cmd" (without quotations) to open a command prompt in that folder. Let's say your image is sourceimage.jpg, your...

    Beware if you get the "Win32 Pioneer" virus.

    I don't really know much about netstat, most of my cybersecurity stuff I do under Linux and even there I am just a beginner who once in a while tinkers with hacking stuff. I do some times shut down all AV for legit reasons (hacking tools mainly) and forget to turn it on for day, but I have other...

    Quick Fix for Slow Internet in Windows 11

    I totally forgot about netstat stuff, this fix was something I found when desperately trying to fix the issue in a hurry. And to answer your question, the credentials were not a carry over. I clean installed Win11 on this thing.

    Beware if you get the "Win32 Pioneer" virus.

    So a while back, I noticed that one of my flash drives for some unknown reason got the Win32 Pioneer virus. I disinfected the infected files on it with Kaspersky and thought nothing of it. Fast forward to last Thursday. I was using a WInPE based flash drive (the same thing I disinfected...

    Quick Fix for Slow Internet in Windows 11

    So recently I installed Windows 11 on my HP gaming desktop (Ryzen 5 3600, GTX1650 Super...) and noticed my internet was unusually slow (Download ~30mbps at best, upload don't even ask). At first I thought it was maybe the drivers that Windows picked for my external TP-Link Archer T4U Plus WiFi...

    What's Your Favorite File Viewing/Management program?

    I personally modified my file explorer on Windows 11 using some tweaking tools to look like Windows 7. Sadly it did break the search, but I do use a program called "Everything" which searches way faster and better than Windows does... [/url]

    How to Bring Back the Old Context Menu in Windows 11

    So I'm not sure about the rest of you here, but I absolutely hate the new context menu on Windows 11. I initially didn't realize there was an option in my old friend Winaero Tweaker to fix the issue, so I initially did a registry hack that I found online. This registry hack is great if you don't...

I'm also an electrical engineering student. I usually do not need to ask around for stuff on forums as I am able to find...
