YouTube was redesigned, updated, and upgraded many times throughout the years. And yet, it still offers a subpar experience if viewed as “a source for media consumption,” compared to, say, a media player. The site’s interface is designed to increase views and keep the visitor on its pages, not to offer the best media playback functionality. Thankfully, you can use some of the following smartly crafted addons to improve your YouTube watching experience. 1. Enhancer for YouTube If you like keeping your browser installation clean, lean and mean, with only a minimal selection of addons, and don’t want to install more than one for tweaking...

Go to the WhatsApp chat you want to export, tap the three-dot menu icon at the top right, then tap “More...

Nobody really asked for a foldable phone, but they’re on their way to being the design trend of the 2020s, and if they can come down in price and up in quality, they might actually be the new normal at some point. The hardware is clearly the main obstacle here, though, so it’s worth understanding what goes into a foldable phone and why the materials are part of what’s holding it back. The glass Regular phone screens are obviously not foldable, as you may have discovered if you’ve ever tried folding one. That’s because they’re typically made of...

Despite the fact that lithium-ion batteries have existed in commercial use since the 1990s, there’s still a lot of seemingly contradicting information on how to properly care for them. Some suggest that batteries should be completely discharged once in awhile. Others say you should avoid using your computer’s USB port to charge your devices. For those truly concerned with the care of their lithium-based batteries, it’s important to discern myth from reality and understand what can harm your battery as well as how you can prolong its life. This is especially significant now, as many phone manufacturers are opting to...

Maybe on your online quests for entertainment you have run into some CBR and CBZ files. After some more clicks, you might have found that those are the two most popular formats for the online distribution of comics and graphic novels. But why? Is there any point in having two more formats on top of everything else, and how can they be used? A bit of history Back in the ancient days of computing, when people were exchanging comics through newsgroups, each page was stored and transferred as a single file, a single image. As connection speeds and storage capabilities improved, those individual pages got...

Thumbnail sheets are typical image files containing frames from a video. Video thumbnail sheets originate from photo sheets that were more popular around a decade ago when people were still printing their photographs. Just like photo sheets acted as previews for the pictures in films and SD cards back then, the thumbnail sheets we see here work as a preview for a video file. They’re easier and quicker to flip through to check a video’s content and quality instead of opening it in a media player to “scan it” from start to finish. Thankfully, you don’t have to extract specific frames...

Who can forget Hall of Tortured Souls in Microsoft Office in Windows 95, or Pinball in Word 97? Windows 10 isn’t quite as playful as previous iterations, phasing easter eggs out since it began its Trustworthy Computing Initiative in 2002. But there are still a few hidden surprises here and there. Here are our favorite easter eggs and secrets hiding in Windows 10. 1. Doom’s Dedicated Port It took a few years for the hit first-person shooter Doom to come to Windows platforms, but when...

The “hitman” scam is probably one of the oldest ways that people extorted money on the internet. However, there’s one particular thing that sets it apart from all its brethren: The gravity it presents involves an alleged attempt on the life of the victim. Though it may not seem serious (it counts as junk email after all), this particular unique aspect makes hitman scams something very few people deal with appropriately. It’s important to understand what hitman scams look like, why they’re so effective, and what people can (and should) do about them. What Is a Hitman Scam? ...

Whenever you boot up your PC, Windows 10 loads up a bunch of so-called startup programs that open at the same time as the operating system. Some are first-party programs like Windows Defender and OneDrive; others are third-party software that you’ve installed on your PC. These programs are controlled through a startup folder on your Windows 10 PC. Here we’re going to show you where to find and control what’s in that folder (for all users as well as for the signed-in user). By default, the Windows 10 Startup folder for all users is “C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp.” You can also access the Startup folder by...

Since people are attracted to shops and restaurants with free Wi-Fi, it’s becoming even more common for businesses to offer it. But how safe are these public Wi-Fi networks really? The rule in the past has always been to stay off public Wi-Fi. It’s dangerous. But today, with the large-scale use of HTTPS encryption on most websites, more public awareness of the risks, and tools that protect your device from hackers, the rule about avoiding all public Wi-Fi may be a bit outdated. There are two different kinds of Wi-Fi you will encounter. Open Wi-Fi networks don’t...
