Incognito mode (browse in private)

For times when you want to browse the web without saving certain info you can use incognito mode in Google Chrome. Here's how incognito mode works:

  • Webpages that you open and files that you download while you're incognito aren't recorded in your browsing and download histories.
  • All new cookies are deleted after you close all incognito windows that you've opened.
  • Changes you make to your Google Chrome bookmarks and general settings while in incognito mode are still saved.

Tip: If you're using a Chromebook, you can use the guest browsing feature as an alternative to incognito mode.

You can have both incognito mode windows and regular windows open at the same time, and switch between the two.

Open an incognito window

  1. Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select New incognito window.
  3. A new window will open with the incognito icon incognito icon in the corner.

You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+N (Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS) and ⌘-Shift-N (Mac) to open an incognito window.

AVID Studio: How To Set Up the Make Disc Settings

In Pinnacle AVID Studio, the Make Disc settings allow you to adjust the settings for creating various discs. The disc formats that you can create in Pinnacle Studio include: DVD, Blu-ray and HD DVD. You need to have the correct burner in your computer in order to utilize all of the disc formats. You can burn DVD on a CD discs in a DVD burner, DVD discs in a DVD or HD DVD burner, HD DVD discs in an HD DVD burner, and Blu-ray discs in a Blu-ray burner.

Step 1: Adjust the Disc Type Setting

The first setting that you need to adjust is the disc type setting. To create a disc or disc image, select DVD or Blu-ray. To create a DVD or an CD or an HD DVD that you can play in a DVD player, select HD DVD.

Step 2: Video Quality and Disc Usage

The video quality and disc usage options refer to the data rate that the disc will be burned at. Your options are automatic, best video quality, most video on disc, and custom. With each option, Pinnacle Studio will display an estimate that tells you how much space you need on a disc in order to utilize that setting.

Step 3: Audio Compression

There are four audio compression options. PCM encodes the audio so that it is supported by all DVD players, but this option can take up a lot of space on your DVD, as well. MPEG will encode that audio so that it is supported by all PAL DVD players, and some NTSC DVD players. Dolby Digital 2-channel is an option that you want to use if you need to store either a stereo or a surround soundtrack on a DVD. Dolby Digital 5.1 channel is similar to the 2-channel setting, except you will need a surround amplifier and speaker system to hear the audio that 5.1 channel encodes.

Step 4: Progressive Encoding

Through the process of progressive scanning, images are drawn from top to bottom at a high screen refresh rate. Many HD televisions and computer monitors use progressive scanning. You should only check the progressive encoding box if your project contains video that was progressively scanned or still images.

Step 5: Burn Options

The default option for creating discs in Pinnacle Studio is to create disc content and then burn. With this option, Pinnacle Studio will create the content that is to be burned to a disc, temporarily store that content to your hard drive, and then burn it to the disc.

Another option is create disc content, but don't burn. As the name suggests, Pinnacle Studio will create the content, but will not burn it to a disc. Instead, the content will be saved as a disc image on your hard drive.

The final burn option is burn from previously created disc content. You would use this burn option after you have used the create disc content, but don't burn option. Instead of burning the current project that you are working on in Pinnacle Studio, you can load the disc image that is saved on your hard drive and burn that content.

Not exactly correct. You can use a high-definition MPEG-2 file or an AVC (H.264) file for Blu-ray. You can also use MPEG-2 for DVD, but you’re right that a standard DVD video is not high definition. You’ll want to create one MPEG-2 file for the DVD and another for the Blu-ray disc. Or, create a high-definition MPEG-2, burn your Blu-ray, and then change the project to a DVD project. You can then burn the DVD using the same high-definition file and DVD Architect will create the standard-definition version that is required for DVD burning.

If you’re creating a DVD, render to MPEG-2 for the video. For a Blu-ray disc, render the video as MPEG-2 or AVC (H.264). In both cases, render the audio to AC3.

Becaus StringFormat is required and target to is be a string type. You can get around this by either using a TextBlock instead (which has a Text property) or putting the Textblock as the child of the Label:

<Label x:Name="myLabel">
<TextBlock.Text> <MultiBinding StringFormat="{}{0} - {1}">
<Binding Path="Lib1" />
<Binding Path="Lib2" />

Track Active Item

You can find that under Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> "Track Active Item in Solution Explorer".

Finally! Visual Studio natively supports jumping to the active document in the solution explorer with Visual Studio 2012. The command is called "Sync with Active Document" and can be accessed from the Solution Explorer toolbar.


The default shortcut is Ctrl+[, S and can be customised by modifying the SolutionExplorer.SyncWithActiveDocument command in keyboard options (Tools -> Customise -> Keyboard)

Active Document Sync

Active document sync is another new feature integrated in enhanced version of Solution Explorer. This navigates you to the active open document. Suppose, you have a open file in the editor window and now you want to go to the physical location of the file, you can just click the active sync button to easily navigate to that place.

Normally, a Windows 8 machine can be restarted by accessing the Settings screen by pressing WinKey+I (or by accessing Charms with WinKey+C and clicking the bottom Settings icon), then by clicking the Power button and selecting Restart / ShutDown from the menu that open.


Another way to access usually the restart options are to press Ctrl+Alt+Del , then click the Power button there and select Restart / Shut Down from the menu that opens. When connected via Remote Desktop, you can access the power button with Ctrl+Alt+End ( Ctrl+Alt+Del displays the lock screen on the host machine, not on the machine you’re connected to), but again Windows 8 offers there only the “”Disconnect” option (despite the tooltip on the button indicating Shut Down).


Another way to restart the computer: you can access the desktop (e.g. by pressing WinKey+D = Desktop, or WinKey+M = MinimizeAll), then press Alt+F4. This displays a Shut Down Windows dialog, where all the options are available! Ah, the good ol’ Desktop…


And, finally if you are a mouse person and prefer a one-click solution, you can create a shortcut to shutdown.exe, then right click it and pin the shortcut to the StartMenu. From now on you’ll be able to shutdown the machine by double clicking the icon on the Start screen or on desktop.


Shut down timed

Target: C:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 20


Shut down timed

Target: C:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -f Shutdown



Target: C:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -r -f 



Press Alt+F4 on empty Desktop.


1.    on the tile page type RUN (select APPS on the top right) and click RUN, then enter:
shutdown -r -f Reboot
shutdown -f Shutdown

2.    Press ALT+F4 (i.e. close) and then select RESTART or SHUTDOWN


Remote Shutdown Command

Once we have mastered the crucial /s switch we can extend the Microsoft Shutdown command to act on remote machines.

Shutdown /s /m \\ComputerName

Note 1: I always get in a tangle with the /m (machine) switch. Pay close attention to its position (after /s or /r) and remember to introduce the victim machine with a double backslash \\ victim.

Note 2: Observe that there is no space between the backslashes and the computername
\\ ComputerName would not work.

Here is an example to restart a server called 'BigSrv'.

Shutdown /r /m \\BigSrv


Detailed Instructions to Create a Windows 8 Shutdown Tile

1.    Start on the Windows 8 desktop, or in a new folder - anywhere except in the Start Menu folder!

2.    Right-click, New, Shortcut. Paste this instruction:
C:\windows\system32\shutdown /s /t 20 (remember the space between t and 20)

3.    Name the shortcut after yourself, e.g. Guy's Shutdown, that way you will recognise it easily!

4.    Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the crucial folder:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

5.    Paste the shortcut. You may wish to click on the advanced button and 'Run as administrator'.

6.    In passing you can see that it's not possible to create a new shortcut here.

7.    It's reassuring to see your shortcut amongst the other Apps.

8.    Return to the Metro UI start screen - Windows Key is the quickest way.

9.      Now, you may see your shortcut at the extreme right of the Metro screen. If not type the first letter, then you should see a list of Apps beginning with that letter. If yours is there, then Right-click its icon and see if it says Pinned or Unpinned, naturally you want it to be Pinned.
