So you try to middle click on a link on a page and miss the link… then the round “Auto Scroll” icon shows up and suddenly the page is moving around and scrolling all by itself. It drives me crazy, so when it was mentioned in the latest Coding Horror article I figured I would write it up in case anybody else wants to disable it.

Mozilla Firefox uses a Firefox account to sync your passwords, bookmarks, and other browsing data between devices. If you’re leaving Firefox behind, you may want to delete your account to remove all your personal data from Firefox’s servers.
Warning: This will delete any Firefox browser data saved online. Any data stored in the Firefox browser on your computer will still exist, however—it just won’t sync to your other devices.

Android phones and tablets can fill up quickly as you download apps, add media files like music and movies, and cache data for use offline. Many lower-end devices may only include a few gigabytes of storage, making this even more of a problem.
The less space you have, the more time you’ll have to spend micromanaging the internal storage. If you find yourself regularly running out of space and needing to manage it, consider getting a phone or tablet with more storage next time around.
Wonder which of your Mac apps are connecting to the Internet, and what they’re doing? Private Eye lets you spy on your applications, watching every outgoing and incoming request in real time. And it’s free.
There is a way to allow apps to communicate through it. If all you want to do is stop incoming requests, with a few exceptions, that should do the trick.
Some laptops come with “Wi-Fi” function keys or switches that can quickly enable or disable your Wi-Fi. If your PC doesn’t have one of these, though, you can make one with the tools built into Windows.
You’ll need to start by creating a desktop or start menu shortcut. Once you’ve done that, you can invoke it with a keyboard shortcut, if you like.

Recently, WikiLeaks published over 19,000 emails from top U.S. Democratic National Committee members, then announced it in a tweet. Those emails contained the personal information of many donors, including credit card numbers, social security numbers, and even passport information. Here’s how to see if your personal information was leaked.
Unfortunately, this story is all too real–in fact, it happened to one of my friends just last month.
Windows–especially Windows 10–has a bad habit of installing new updates for hardware drivers whether you want them or not. You could go big and simply prevent Windows from downloading updates altogether, or you might have luck blocking or hiding updates. But if you’ve got the Pro or Enterprise version of Windows, you can tailor your actions a little better by using Group Policy Editor to prevent the installation or updating of specific devices.
Move a file to the trash, empty the trash, or take a screenshot of your Mac’s desktop and your Mac will play a sound. If you’re sick of those paper crumpling and camera shutter sounds, you can disable them by changing a single option.
This option isn’t necessarily where you’d expect it. You might think that the option for disabling the trash sound would be in the Finder’s Preferences window, but it’s not.
You’ve got your collection of Windows ISOs and maybe you’ve burned installation DVDs or flash drives for them. But why not make yourself a master installation drive that you can use to install any version of Windows?

Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S are finally available in stores September 25 2015. But there is no surprise that there are fake iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus available in the markets. These fake iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are very much similar to the original iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus but still they are not original so they are more harmful than useful as without any warranty they can stop functioning and showing you dead screen, poor call quality and user experience and waste of money.

Installing software on a Mac is different from installing software on Windows. There isn’t just one way to install applications on a Mac, either — there are several different ways, depending on the application you want to install.
New Mac users will likely find themselves asking a number of questions: Why isn’t every application on the Mac App Store? What is a DMG file, and why do I have to drag-and-drop the app’s icon after opening it?
If you want to insure full Mac compatibility of a new external hard drive or flash disk, you’ll want to format the drive to the Mac OS Extended filesystem. This is particularly necessary for purchases of generic PC drives, which almost always come preformatted to be Windows compatible rather than for Mac OS X.
