Assign Permanent Drive Letters To A Removable USB Drive In Windows

Windows assigns drive letters by progressing through the alphabets. Apart from letters A and B, drives are named C, D, etc. You have no doubt seen that the letters for the partitioned drives on your system do not change. If you have a DVD drive, it’s letter doesn’t change either but the same doesn’t hold true for USB drives. Windows assigns the drive letter to a USB drive dynamically so that a drive that was labeled F drive might later be labeled G if another drive(s) is connected. Normally this isn’t a problem unless you need the USB drive to always be assigned specific letter to keep certain paths functional. Here’s how you can assign a permanent drive letter to a USB drive in Windows.

This trick requires no third party apps and will work in Windows 7 and above. You must have your USB drive connected to your system to assign it a permanent drive letter.

Block Comments When Loading Websites In Safari In iOS 9

With content blocking apps now supported in Safari, the App Store has seen an incoming of one particular type of apps; ad blockers. Ads can be annoying and a lot of websites don’t bother to optimize them so that content ends up being blocked by ads, or the page keeps scrolling to the top as an ad loads. Where ads do make it so that websites need more time to load, comment plugins used by websites are often guilty of the same. Some sites make it so that comments aren’t loaded when you visit a page unless you specifically tap the option to load them but websites like that are in the minority. Meet Shut Up, a free content blocking app for blocking comments in Safari. It comes with a whitelisting feature with a few websites such as Reddit and Stackoverflow already added to it.

Download Shut Up and enable it in Safari’s settings. Open the app and you can see the websites already added to the white list. The sites are ones where the comments themselves are the actual content. To add another site, click the plus button at the bottom and enter the site’s URL.

Use Recipes To Create Random Passwords That You Won’t Need To Remember [Paid]

I remember when I first signed up for Lastpass. It was at the end of the work day and I decided that I’d save my various login IDs and passwords to it later. The next day, Lastpass was hacked. Now, Lastpass is a very popular service that takes security very seriously but that hack scared me enough that I never wanted to rely on a password vault. I’ve had to rely on my memory to remember passwords and I’ve had to recover my password many times, many. PasswordChef is a $ 2.99 iOS app that is essentially a password vault but with a unique way of storing passwords; through recipes. The recipes are basically steps that, when performed as instructed, spell out your password for the service they were created for.

PasswordChef both stores passwords, and helps you create them. The recipe comprises of the different steps that you have to perform in order to get the characters of your password and each recipe spells out the password for one service. As you build the password, the app indicates its strength. Each password appears as with the name of the site it was created for, and you can name your passwords to anything, either obvious like ‘Password to important financial information’ or, ‘Gran’s Apple Pie Recipe’.

How to root Lenovo A806 Golden Warrior A8 on Android 4.4.X KitKat [Guide]

Lenovo A806 Golden Warrior A8 The Lenovo A806 Golden Warrior A8 is a smartphone released during 2014 running Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. If you want to stay loyal to the Lenovo brand, and yet, don’t want to break a budget, the A8 is a smart choice since it’s available for under $ 200. The only problem with buying the cheaper handsets is that sometimes they don’t always get the latest software updates. There’s a way around that. With root access, we can sometimes install the latest software update, thanks to unofficial builds that arrive by third-party developers. If you do root Lenovo A806 Golden Warrior A8 on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and don’t find any new software updates boosting your OS to Android 5.0 Lollipop, you can still install those cool root-requiring apps from the Google Play Store. Without root access, you are only able to install the official apps available form Google Play; however, there is still another world to open up with endless opportunities with third party apps you need to explore. Hacking the internal system by rooting the Lenovo A806 Golden Warrior is the sure way to make that happen.

How To Block An Email Address In Gmail

I’ve used Gmail as my main email service for years now. Gmail’s handling of spam is what got me to stick with the service and abandon my Hotmail account. Where Gmail does an excellent job of handling spam, there is a certain kind of spam that it has no filter for; the spam that’s not obvious spam, but still spam. These are emails from people that are legit users and aren’t trying to scam you out of money but are instead trying to sell you things; office furniture, web development services, or trainings that have nothing to do with you. You can mark these messages as spam but Gmail will not treat it as such and the next email from any of these senders will make it to your primary inbox. There is good news though as a new block feature is being rolled out to Gmail users on the web and on Android. The block feature allows users to block emails by email address. Here’s how to use it.

On Android, open the email message you never want to have to see again. Tap the more button next to the Reply/Reply All button and at the very bottom of the actions menu, you will see the block option.

Marvel Phase One Retrospective Looks Back on the First Years of the MCU

It may seem hard to believe, but Marvel has now completed two phases of films, ending Phase Two with Ant-Man before entering Phase Three next summer with Captain America: Civil War. The new MCU kicked off back in 2008 with Iron Man and ended with the first Avengers in 2012 — which already seems so, so long ago. As we prepare for Avengers: Age of Ultron to hit Blu-ray and DVD, one fan has put together this 10-minute retrospective looking back on the films of Phase One.

The video comes from Jakub Ignarski (via The Playlist) and gives us a nice, long look back at Marvel’s Phase One. That phase of MCU films gave us Iron Man and Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, and lest you forget — The Incredible Hulk.
