Add Shortcuts To Windows Libraries To The Start Menu

The Start Menu in Windows 7 has links to your libraries; Documents, Music, Videos, etc. While Windows 10 is bringing back the beloved Start Menu that was killed in the previous version of Windows, it’s doing so with monumental differences (read improvements).

How to Record PC Gameplay With Game DVR and Game Bar

An Easy-to-Understand Explanation of the Moon Terminator Illusion

There’s a strange optical illusion that we all experience, without even thinking about it, relating to the way we see the moon. The Moon Terminator Illusion is that weird phenomenon when the side of the moon that is lit by the sun doesn’t look like it actually lines up with the sun at all. Vsauce host Michael Stevens explores the science behind this illusion and explains perspective, angles, and zoom effects involved:

Creating, Accessing and Calculating Duration

A Duration object (java.time.Duration) represents a period of time between two Instant objects. The Duration class was added to the Java date time API from Java 8. A Duration instance is immutable so once it is created you cannot change its values. You can, however, create new Duration objects based on another Duration object via calculation methods. You will see how later in this tutorial.

How To Delete Or Forget Wireless Network Profiles

In some of our previous articles, we've shown how you can connect to broadcasting or hidden wireless networks in Windows 10. Whenever you do connect to a wireless network, the operating system creates a profile for that connection, in which it stores things like its SSID (the name of the network) and its security details (like the password and encryption it uses). However, what if you decide you don't want your device to remember a certain wireless connection? In such a case, you must delete its network profile. This guide will show you how you can do that

Creating, accessing and calculating an instant

Viewport sized typography with minimum and maximum sizes

Tutorial preview or category icon
Viewport units for typography are quite a cool toy to have in your responsive web design toolbox, as they allow you to size fonts relatively to the dimensions of the viewport. These units can produce really interesting results, but they must be used with caution. From my experience, there’s always a point where the font becomes unreadable on small screens, and sometimes too big on large screens.

A Developers Guide to Risky Android App Permissions

The Android Operating System is an open platform based on Linux, integrated into mobile devices, smart watches, tablets and even televisions and cars. The opportunity to create applications across a myriad of devices raises the problem of security, which I believe to be Android’s biggest challenge. Android maintains application level security by using a full permissions based security mechanism that lets users restrict access to application components.

Understanding asynchronous invocation with promise using angularjs

The status of the async function invocation then can be determined using callbacks. All this is achieved using Promise object. The article will demonstrate how one can make use of promise object with asynchronous invocations using AngularJS.

Angular 2: Hello World

As I mentioned in my recent blog post Angular 2 is a complete rewrite. Many concepts that are known from Angular 1.x are gone or changed dramatically. Angular 2 looks like a completely different framework: no DDO, no $scope, no angular.module and completely rewritten binding and change detection (no ng-model). In this blog post I will share some basic concepts of the framework via code samples..
