How to Download Windows 10 For Free in 2018

Ever since Microsoft launched Windows 10, it’s made the OS officially or unofficially available. Officially, you stopped being able to download or upgrade your system to Windows 10 on July 29, 2016. Unofficially, you can still download an upgrade license for the OS. And despite statements from Microsoft that it would absolutely-no-fooling-really-truly kill the Windows 10 free upgrade offer on December 31, 2017, that offer is still good.

Microsoft’s first giant push to convince customers to use Windows 10 was marred by an increasingly heavy hand as the campaign went on, to the point that it was both accused of malware tactics and later admitted to the same. We’ll never know exactly how many people avoided the upgrade for this reason alone, but some readers have indicated they were disgusted by the company’s behavior and refused to update.

Without implying that Windows 7 or Windows 8 users have to change their mind on that, it’s worth noting Windows 7 exits support by 2020, with Windows 8.1 out of long-term support in 2023. Windows 8 users have a little while, Windows 7 users have less. Microsoft also now locks out updates on Intel and AMD systems based on Kaby Lake, Ryzen, or Bristol Ridge, though there are some ways to bypass that block. Either way, Windows 10 may be a nice OS to have as an option, even if you don’t immediately start using it.

Here’s how you can still get a free copy of Windows 10 directly: Visit this webpage, attest that you use assistive technologies baked into Windows, and download the executable provided. It’s that simple. Maybe it’ll still vanish soon, maybe it won’t, but we don’t recommend waiting. Better safe than sorry and whatnot.

As for why Microsoft keeps threatening to pull the rug, I’m guessing the company has seen adoption rates from already running computers fall off over time. It’s been over 2.5 years since Windows 10 launched, and MS was never going to leave this backdoor in its own policy open forever. If you haven’t upgraded by now, I suppose Microsoft thinks you’re never going to actually upgrade, and OEMs would probably be happier if MS shut down the option since it competes with their ability to offer Windows 10 as a new OS on their devices.

Microsoft has also plowed ahead with the idea of Windows-as-a-service, in a bid to convince customers that being upgraded to the latest and greatest is the best way to be. Closing this loophole at some point may be an attempt to shove customers towards new hardware as opposed to letting them upgrade existing installations — though again, I’m not sure the volume is high enough to matter either way.
How to make a full backup of your Windows 10 PC

It's not the question of if, but when. Sooner or later the hard drive on your computer will fail, malware may take control of your system, or a critical error may corrupt your data. If you don't make regular backups, you could lose important documents, irreplaceable pictures, and settings that you may have spent hours configuring on your device.

On Windows 10, there are plenty ways to backup your system and data without having to resort to third-party solutions, and the built-in system image tool is one of them.

A system image is a backup that contains everything stored on your computer, including the full installation of Windows 10, settings, applications, and all your files, as well as any additional drives you may have connected. If your computer fails, you can use the system image backup to restore your computer, getting you up and running in a matter of minutes on the same or different hard drive.

In this Windows 10 guide, we walk you through the steps to create a full backup, including all your settings, apps, and files, using the built-in system image tool.

How to create a system image backup of Windows 10

While you can store the backup on a secondary drive, network location, and even use blanks DVDs, it's best to connect to external storage, which you can quickly disconnect and store in a safe place.

To create a full backup using Windows 10's system image tool, you need to connect external storage with enough available space and then use these steps. (If you don't know exactly how much space will be needed to store the backup, you can always connect the drive, and the wizard will let you know.) Here's how:

  • Open Control Panel.
  • Click on System and Security.
  • Click on Backup and Restore (Windows 7).
  • On the left pane, click the Create a system image link.
  • Under "Where do you want to save the backup?" select the On a hard disk option.
  • Using the "On a hard disk" drop-down menu, select the storage to save the backup.
  • Click the Start backup button.

Once you completed these steps, the wizard will proceed to create a full backup of your system, including everything that is stored on the main drive, as well as the system reserved partition.

During the backup process, Windows 10 will also use Shadow Copy, a technology that allows you to create a backup while files are still in use, which means that you can continue to work normally as the image is being created.

After the backup is done, you'll be prompted to create a system repair disk to access the recovery options if your computer is unable to boot. While it's recommended to create the repair disc, you can always access the recovery options using a bootable USB drive with the installation files for Windows 10.

Quick tip: You can always create a repair disc by clicking the Create a system repair disc link within the Backup and Restore (Windows 7) settings page.
Finally, remember to disconnect the external backup drive and store it in a safe place.

How to restore a system image backup of Windows 10

If your computer won't boot, you want to start over with a previous installation, or you're replacing the main hard drive on your device, use these steps to recover from a backup:

  • Connect the external drive with the system image backup to your device.
  • Connect the disk that contains the system repair files (or USB bootable drive with the Windows 10 installation files) to your device.
  • Reboot your computer.

Quick tip: If your device isn't booting into the Windows Setup wizard, you'll need to change your system's BIOS settings to make sure it can boot from the USB or DVD drive. Usually, you can access the BIOS by starting your device and hitting one of the functions or ESC keys, but make sure to check your manufacturer's support website for more information.

  • On the "Windows Setup" page, click the Next button.
  • Click the Repair your computer link located at the bottom-left corner.
  • Click the Troubleshoot option.
  • Click the System Image Recovery option.
  • Choose the target OS. (In this case, Windows 10.)
  • On the "Re-image your computer" page, select the Use the latest available system image option
  • Click Next.
  • If you're restoring a full backup to a new drive, you can also select the Format and repartition disks option. (Use this option carefully, as it will erase any existing partitions and disks on your computer.)
  • Click Next.
  • Click Finish.
  • Click Yes to confirm that the backup will replace the data on the drive.

After completing theses steps, the recovery process will begin. Remember that the time to finish the recovery will depend upon the amount of data and your hardware configuration.

If it's been a while since the last time you created a full backup, remember to use Windows Update on the Settings app to download the latest security patches.

Wrapping up

Usually, a system image backup comes in handy to create a copy of your entire system before upgrading to a new version of Windows 10 in case something goes wrong or you want to rollback to a previous version if your device is experiencing issues after Windows 10 automatically deletes the previous installation.

It's also a good idea to create a full backup regularly in case of system or hardware failure, or after spending many hours configuring your system with a clean installation and applications. Then if something goes wrong, malware sneaks in, or you simply want to start from scratch, you can always restore your system in minutes with all your settings and apps, including those traditional desktop programs.

The only caveat with this particular feature is that you must be proactive making full backups regularly, as you can only recover your system and files since the last backup you created. Any documents, settings, and apps you may have created, changed, or installed after the backup won't be recoverable through this process.

In addition, this is a feature designed to recover your entire system, not to restore files, settings, and applications individually.

If you want to keep an up-to-date copy of your files, you should think about using the system image tool in combination with File History or OneDrive.

Personally, I like to create a base backup of my computer after a clean installation with all my applications configured just the way I need them. Then I setup File History and OneDrive to have up-to-date on-site and off-site backups of my files.

Although this guide is focused on Windows 10, the system image backup tool has been around for years, which means that you can also refer to these instructions if you're using Windows 8.1 or Windows 7.

How to Sync WordPress With Facebook Profile

A WordPress blog can be a valuable source of information about and exposure for your small business or personal enterprise, a blog only works as well as its advertising. You can link your WordPress blog to social networking sites that allow you to notify friends and followers of updates and posts. In the case of social media giant Facebook, link your blog to the site profile so that blog updates appear in your Facebook feed.

1. Log in to your WordPress account from the main page.

2. Click your user name in the upper right corner of the screen. Click on the "My Blogs" tab, followed by the "Dashboard" link underneath your blog listing.

3. Roll your mouse cursor over the "Settings" option from the menu located on the left side of the screen. Click on the "Sharing" option that appears in the pop-up menu.

4. Select the Facebook entry from the "Publicize" listing located at the top of the Sharing page. A window appears, asking you to authorize your Facebook account. Click the "Authorize Connection with Facebook" button. WordPress sends you to the external Facebook login page. After you enter your credentials, you return to the WordPress page to complete the process.
How to Create a Free Dating Site
Keeping the site free can help grow your user base, but it means you'll have to design your service around generating revenue from other sources.

Dating websites are a pretty specific sub-group in the social networking world, and they offer a potentially lucrative business opportunity to web-savvy entrepreneurs. Keeping the site free, rather than subscription-based, can help grow your user base but it means you'll have to design your service around generating revenue from other sources.

Look at other online dating websites to determine staples that your dating website must offer to be competitive. Use the information you gather to identify what you could do differently to set yourself apart from other free dating sites.

Check the websites of companies that offer affiliate programs and ad networks. These two methods, along with selling member personal data and ads on your site, are the two major means of generating revenue on a dating site without charging a subscription fee, as Jonathan Fox of the Free Dating Sites website outlines. Decide which revenue generation method you will use on your site.

Select a Web host and domain name. The Web host provides space on a server for your Web pages. Free hosting is available, but paid hosting generally is better because you get more space, better monitoring and an overall more stable website. Choose a host that can provide the amount of bandwidth you project will be necessary as the site grows.

  • Register your domain name as your business name with your state licensing agency.

  • Open a separate bank account for any monies earned from the site. This will make tracking your revenue and expenses much easier.

  • Select software or site building tools to create your site. Some Web hosts provide free tools when you purchase your web hosting service, but independent software applications are available. NVu is a good example of an independent What You See Is What You Get --WYSIWYG -- website creation and editing program. Alternately, hire a programmer to build the site -- this is much more expensive but allows the most customization options.

  • Use your information from Steps 1 and 2 to determine the overall design for the dating website. Navigation is the most important aspect of any website. For a dating website, the most important navigation controls are those that link to the profiles of others, profile creation tools or templates and chat. Color also is important for a dating website. Red, for example, is associated with fiery love and passion, and may not be as appropriate for a website themed for "sweet" relationships.

  • Design each individual page of the site. Make getting a good balance between your revenue sources and the true purpose of the site a goal for every page. Do not let the ads on the site detract too much from member profiles.

  • Upload the individual website pages to the Web host server and publish the site using the instructions for your specific website creation or editing software. Promote the sites on other sites you have, as well as your email signature and more traditional methods such as magazine ads. Work closely with your Web host, as well as your programmer if used, to maintain the site as needed.

Many dating websites allow video streaming so visitors can have video chats. Do not use a video platform that requires extensive resources or which is not compatible with commonly used browsers or devices. Higher resolutions mean more data, which means you will need more bandwidth if you want to offer video chat at high quality.

Create a brief but clear terms and policies notice on your website. On this notice, have users verify they are at least 18 years of age, particularly if your dating website has any clearly sexual themes or content. Make entry into the site contingent upon verifying the terms and policies.

How to Make Blogger Blog Load Faster
Having a blog with a good and responsive design is not only a factor we should consider in creating or customizing our own blog template. We should also make sure that our blog will load faster, so that our visitors will easily see a particular page of our blog and minimize the reduction in conversions.

Did you know that loading speed of our blog can be a ranking factor of Google? Page speed is really a big deal for all sites, especially for an e-commerce sites that is making money over $100,000 per day, because in a 1 second of the delay of their loading speed can loss $2.5 million in their sales yearly according to the study of kissmetrics. Also, according to them 40% of people will leave a site that takes 3 seconds to load.

Sometimes a template you bought or you downloaded for free is not totally optimize for faster loading, sometimes we need to optimize it manually. As you go on reading this page you will learn the simple things on how you can make your Blogger blog load faster.

The first thing you will do is to check your blog first on PageSpeed Insight tool. In this tool you will see some problems and things you must do on your blog to make it load faster.

Minifying CSS/JavaScript

Minifying your CSS and JavaScript is just deleting the white spaces in your template. Below is an example of CSS codes that is not minified.
#menu ul.menus
#menu ul.menus li
   font:12px Arial;

CSS minified Version

#menu ul.menus{height:auto;overflow:hidden; width:180px;background:#111; position:absolute;z-index:99; display:none;border:0;}
#menu ul.menus li{ display:block; width:100%; font:12px Arial; text-transform:none;}

JavaScript Code that's not minified

var span = document.getElementsByTagName( ‘span’ )[0];
 span.innerText = ‘interactive’;  = ‘inline’;

var loadTime = document.createElement ( ‘div’ );
loadTime.innerText = ‘You loaded this page on:  ’  + new Date();  =  ‘blue’;
 document.body.appendChild (loadTime);

Minified Version

var span = document.getElementsByTagName( ‘span’ )[0]; span.innerText = ‘interactive’;  = ‘inline’; var loadTime = document.createElement ( ‘div’ ); loadTime.innerText = ‘You loaded this page on:  ’  + new Date();  =  ‘blue’; document.body.appendChild (loadTime);
White space is just helping us to read easily the CSS and Java Script of our template and it doesn’t help the browsers to parse it. So if you remove some spaces in your CSS and Java Script file you will minimize the amount of data that browsers get on your template. There are some tools on the web that can help us to minify easily our CSS and JavaScript files. (csscompressorminifyjs) 

Use Async Attribute to Script Tag

All JavaScript is render blocking, but on the other hand JavaScript is fast to execute on any browsers. Using external JavaScript file can take a lot of time before it will execute on a webpage. It’s because browsers will download first the JavaScript file to a site where it saved before it will execute in the browser.

Using Async attribute to the Script tag tells browsers to continue to parse the html without blocking the doom construction. In other words, it will continue to load the other elements on our blog without waiting to load the JavaScript file. Sometimes we can’t avoid using external JavaScript files on our blog template, the JavaScript file is helpful if you prioritize to minify your html code. Async can only be used in an external JavaScript file and it will not work on inline script.

Below is an example of external JavaScript file with Async attribute.
<script src="" async="async"></script>

Removing Unused Text on HTML

This is just deleting other text on codes that is not used. In visiting your template codes I’m sure you will notice that there are some text looks like this <!-- end blah blah blah --> and /*------------*/. This text is just a way to say something about the codes on the html, it will not do anything on our site. So if you remove unused text you will decrease the amount of bytes of your html.

Optimizing Every Images

In terms of creating blog posts, we know that images can really help to increase our blog engagement rate on social media sites. So most of us are using images to improve the appearance of every page of our blog, but we should know that every one of it can make our blog load slower. Optimizing the file size of every image is the best thing to do, so, to do that you can use tinypng than can optimize file size of images without losing its quality

How to use Two Keyboards and Mice on One Computer

Have you ever wondered if you could use two mice on a single PC? No, you are not the only odd duck out there! There are plenty of scenarios where another set of keyboard or mouse seems quite handy like – using another wireless mouse from a distance while watching a movie.

The idea sounds cool, right? Or while playing games like FIFA, you could use another keyboard for your mate to have a marathon gaming session.

I could go on for hours about how it can make the best of the situations. So, folks, here are some of the ways to use multiple keyboards or mice on your computer, enjoy!

Simple Solution: Connect Them Both
If you have never tried this before now’s your chance, You know, Windows can detect multiple keyboards or mice and even lets you use them without a problem. All you need to do is plug it in, all done.

Windows will take a few moments to add its driver but once it settles in you can efficiently use the two mouse on one computer without any problem at all.

Same goes for keyboards. After plugging it in, you’ll be able to type using both of them without any hassle, pretty cool.

This usually works best if you want to use it for your TV. You can easily mirror your PC to your TV and then control it with a wireless mouse. Both the devices will work the same way. So, you can keep switching back and forth, just as you like.

Third Party Tool: Use TeamPlayer
Well, the simple solution is excellent, but it only gives you control over one cursor. What if you want to use two separate cursors at a time? This tool is the answer for that.

Using two separate cursors using TeamPlayer is easy. It will get the job done in a jiffy. All you have to do is to download it from the website and install it.

Although you’ll get a trial version, it’s not free of course. But it will be useful if you only need it for a short time. Or you could buy it if you need it in the long run.

After you install it, you have to click the trial tab and then hit the Start Trial option to start it.

A small window will appear which would control the app. You’ll be able to add a red box to your screen using the right screen like button. This red box can restrict the other mouse’s movement.

So, if you don’t want the other person using the mouse to use more than one app, you can use this feature. But you can also disable this feature by clicking that button again. It will allow the other mouse to have full access to the screen.

How To Use TeamPlayer?
It may be a little bit different than other tools. After you start to use it, it will begin to split the device inputs. The first mouse connected to it works as User 1 and then User 2 and so on.

The same goes for keyboards. Once you connect them, you can use them simultaneously. So, one can type a document, and other can surf the net. It’s effortless.

If you want to tweak it further up, you can head to Settings. It will allow you to change the cursor colour, size or labels. You can even alter the speed individually, just to distinguish them. Also, you can use the shortcut tab to start or stop the multi-keyboard mode.

You can even change your name from User 1 to whatever you want.

Although it looks pretty impressive, it costs a great deal. So, unless you are a businessman, I wouldn’t recommend using this solution.

Logitech's Unifying Receiver

All the mice and keyboards of Logitech now comes with a Unifying Receiver. You can plug in it into a USB and connect other devices. You can use it to connect up to 6 devices! But they have to be all Logitech of course.

So, if you have multiple keyboards and mice of Logitech, you can use it all at once without another software.

You need to have Logitech Unifying Software on your system. If you don’t have it yet, just install one and you’ll be able to use this method.

The software will lead you to how you can add multiple devices or switch them on and off.

How to Auto Post to Blogspot

Blogger, also called Blogspot, is a free blog-hosting service provided by Google. A blog has the potential to become an excellent publicity tool for any business; for example, you can use a blog to promote new products and give customers an in-depth look into your business. To create a successful blog, you must post new content to it regularly. If you are leaving on a business trip or other extended leave from your workplace, you do not want to leave your blog with no posts for the duration of your trip. Set your Blogger posts to automatically post at set dates and times.
1. Click the orange "New Post" button located on the left side of the Blogger screen.
2. Click "Schedule" on the right side of the screen.
3. Click "Set Date and Time."
4. Select the date and the time you want the blog post to automatically post to Blogger. Click "Done" when finished.
5. Compose the rest of your blog post as normal. Click "Publish" at the top of the screen. When you return back to the "Posts" page, any posts that are scheduled to automatically post will say "Schedule" next to them.
6. Repeat these steps for additional blog posts you want to automatically post to your blog.
How to Get Blogger Without Blogspot in the Name

The “blogspot” name in your blog’s address is the Internet domain that the Google Blogger service uses to host all Blogger blogs. When you create a new blog through Blogger, the service automatically assigns a “” Web domain address. To remove the “” address from your blog, you can switch to a new custom domain name through the Blogger service. Once set up, Blogger automatically forwards your blogspot blog to the new domain.

1. Sign in to your Blogger account. Click the “Settings” link in the submenu under the title of the blog that you want to move to a custom domain.

2. Click “Publishing” in the Settings navigation menu at the top of the page.

3. Scroll to the “Buy a Domain for Your Blog” section. Type your preferred domain name into the input box beside “What address would you like your blog to have?” This is the part of the address that follows the “http://www." prefix.

4. Select your preferred top-level domain from the drop-down list. Options include “.com”, “.net”, “.org”, “.info” or “.biz.”

5. Click the blue “Check Availability” button. If the address is already taken, amend or replace your preferred address name, and then click “Check Availability” again. Repeat this step until Blogger displays a success message stating that the domain is available. Click the “Continue to Registration” button.

6. Type your name and contact details into the input fields. Blogger automatically populates the fields with the information you entered when you set up the Blogger account, so you’ll usually need to just complete any gaps or correct mistakes.

7. Click and select the check boxes to confirm that you have read and agreed to the terms and conditions for Blogger and GoDaddy, the Web hosting firm that Blogger uses for custom domains. Click the blue links above the check boxes to read the terms and conditions in full.

8. Click the “I Accept. Proceed to Google Checkout” button. If you have a credit card, debit card or electronic payment method registered on your Google Account, sign in with your account user name and password to pay with this method. Otherwise, enter the payment method information -- account name, number and expiration date -- into the applicable input fields. Once you’ve confirmed the purchase, Blogger will transfer your blog to the new domain and replace the “” address with the new domain name.
