  • If your PC takes a little too long to boot then it is possibly because there are too many programs running in the background. Some programs are essential for third party programs like video games to run so be careful not to turn those off. To turn off on Windows 8 and 10, open Taskbar (Ctrl+ Shift+ Esc). Go to the startup tab and choose which programs you want to start your PC with.

Set it to run as Administrator by clicking “advanced option” in the shortcut tab.
  • To end an application session, hold down Alt+F4. Yes, it’s not a social media banter theme. It actually works.

Some call me David. Others, Emerie. Others, (unfortunate fellows) Biggie. I like to think that I have sense and that is why I write too. Otherwise, I draw and paint and sing (in the bathroom) and love to make people laugh. I love to understand how things work and that’s why I love DIY videos and YouTube of course.
