If you are having an email account on gmail.com and using it daily, you need to be an expert in it. Ever given it a thought that you could use it in a faster way?
No worries..!! Today i am listing some short-cuts that you can use while accessing gmail, they will surely make you rule the screen.
To use these short-cuts, you first need to enable keyboard short-cuts in the gmail settings, as shown below:
– SCROLL THROUGH YOUR INBOX
After activating the keyboard short-cuts you will see a subtle blue bar (as shown in the image below). This will indicate the message that you have selected. You can scroll through these messages, using K key to go to a newer post and J key to move to older ones.
– MOVE BETWEEN NEW AND OLD EMAILS
As you used the J and K keys for shifting to messages on the inbox screen, these keys will perform a similar function even when the message has been opened. Try it.
– DELETING AN EMAIL
To quickly delete an openend email from the inbox, use the following keys :
Press the “Up” arrow key + Press “Shift” key + Press “3” (#)
– COMPOSE A NEW EMAIL
To compose a new email, simply press the C key,and a new email window will appear.
– SENDING THE EMAIL
When you have done writing your email and want to send it to an email address. Simply enter all details and press “Ctrl” + “Enter”, instead of moving the cursor over to Send button.
– EXPLORE CONVERSATIONS
When an email has several answers, they are saved as conversations. To scroll through these messages you can use the N key to go up and P key to go down. A subtle blue mark appears on the current selected part of the conversation.
– ANSWER, REPLY, FORWARD
When you want to answer all contacts who received a copy of the email, press the A key.
When you want to reply to an email, press the R key.
When you want to forward an email to someone, press the F key.
– SAVE DRAFTS
if for any reason you wish to save the email in between as a draft, simply use the keys, “Ctrl” + S.
– UNDO YOUR ACTION
In case you accidentally deleted an email, and want it back. Relax and press the key Z. You
will get back your lost email.
Well, I hope i introduced a new side of the gmail to you.

The binary number system (aka base 2) represents values using two symbols, typically 0 and 1.
Computers call these bits. A bit is either off (0) or on (1). When arranged in sets of 8 bits (1 byte) 256 values can be represented (0-255).
Using an ASCII chart, these values can be mapped to characters and text can be stored.
It’s not magic, it’s just math!
Convert any “text” to its corresponding “binary” value. Visit this link -> TextToBinary
Did you know what that option “briefcase” is for? I dont know even if most of the people know about it…!
I am a computer engineering student and i myself never used it. But yesterday this pic aroused curiosity in me to find out what is the actual use of “briefcase” ?
You can use Briefcase to keep files in sync between two different computers, even if the computers are not on the same network. If the computers are not on the same network, you can copy files from one computer to another by using removable media, work on those files using the other computer, and then use Briefcase to sync the changes back to the original computer.
To use it, there are several steps involved, as follows
1.Open the folder where you want to create a new Briefcase.
2.Right-click a blank area in the folder window, point to New, and then click Briefcase.
3.A new Briefcase appears. Type a name for the Briefcase, and then copy any files you want to sync into the Briefcase.
*You can also create a Briefcase on your desktop by right-clicking a blank area on the desktop, pointing to New, and then clicking Briefcase.
*Briefcase does not work with Sync Center.
Well,i hope now those who dint know about this before, will start exploiting this feature soon..!

We have always been finding ways to increase our Wi-Fi signals, and if you aren’t ready to spend some bucks on buying a brand new router, then there is a way out for you. Now, you can do it with the help of a soda can. Yes, with a f*ing soda can.!!! You just have to rip it off in a ‘man’nerly way and then put it up on your antenna, where it will act as a parabolic reflector and you can enjoy Wi-Fi on the far side of your house.
Just work according to the arrangement as shown in the image below.
Out of your home for vacations?
Wanna spy on someone?
This is possible for you now. All you need is a webcam and a freeware application “Yawcam”.
Yawcam stands for- Yet Another WebCAM.
Though this technique works only for PCs that have Windows operating system installed on them.
Once you spend some time learning how to use Yawcam, you would then be able to make your webcam capture images even in your absence and then save them to your hard drive.
The best part is that you can even schedule the time when Yawcam captures images, so that your webcam is not clicking pics all the time..!
Yawcam has a number of features – motion sensing, scheduler for online time, password protection, multi-languages and video streaming to name a few.
