Working with High Resolution Images in WordPress

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG-nqdy_uao Transcript "So I was asked recently to demonstrate the basics of working with images in WordPress, particularly when you're dealing with images that are of a high resolution. So if you look at my desktop here, I have three images. I will just display them quickly - this one, this one, and this one. Now, what they have in common is they're all the same size... if I hover over them right here, you'll see that they are 3200 by 2400, that's a fairly large size, and I can demonstrate that by opening one of them in Paint.

How to Remove Ads From the Windows 10 Lock Screen

I've discovered I have a new passion in life, and you know what it's all about? Helping people remove as much of the ads and sponsored content from Windows 10 as possible, assuming, of course, that that's something they want to do to begin with. And so today, a very quick but essential tip... how do you remove the"helpful" facts and/or links that appear on the login page? Here's an example: No, Windows 10. Bad.

How to Hide the Tools Pane in Adobe Reader DC

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJNGfqKlKjk Transcript "Hi everyone. In this video, I'll be showing you how to hide the Tools Pane from Adobe Reader DC. I'll be showing it under Windows 10. So you know when you're opening a PDF with Adobe Reader? On the right hand side, there's this special section known as the Tools Pane. It's an area that has several functions: Export PDF, Create PDF, and a bunch of other things. Now, generally speaking, I find this section obstructive, more than anything. So it's in the way. I would like, for example, the Adobe Reader window to utilize the full width of the window, not just a portion of it because of this sidebar. So in order to hide the sidebar, I click on the arrow…

How to Use the Selective Sync Feature in Dropbox

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTR2FZz3Hbw Transcript So in this video, I'll be showing you how to use the Selective Sync feature offered by Dropbox. So you'll notice in the bottom right corner, I have a Dropbox icon that has a green checkmark next to it. That means the files are fully synchronized, they're the same on my device as they are on the Dropbox servers. Now, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna click on this icon, and then I shall click the folder icon here, to show you the actual Windows Explorer version of my Dropbox.

How to Use Task Manager’s Hidden Tiny Footprint Mode

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUHvN4f2MPE Transcript Now, if you're a Windows user, there's a certain point in your life where you learn that Ctrl+Alt+Del is your best friend. From Ctrl+Alt+Del, you can actually pop up the task manager. So, I can't show Ctrl+Alt+Del on screen here, because of the way my video capturing software works, but that's one way to pop-up task manager. The other way is to simply right-click in the taskbar in Windows, so down here for example. And then you'll notice that there's a task manager option. I can simply select that to launch task manager. But regardless how you do it, I wanted to quickly show you a feature that not many people necessarily encounter. So over here you see a simplified list of apps.…
