If you’re a Google Chrome user like me, or a user of a Chromium-based browser, you know that to control Chrome, it isn’t done through an option panel, but rather a chrome:// URL. So, if you’ve ever wanted to know every single chrome:// page, here’s where you can access it.

Open up Chrome, and type in chrome://chrome-urls. On the page, you’ll notice it looks like a basic text-based website; it’s not meant to look cool; it’s meant to be functional. On the page, you’ll probably see familiar places like chrome://apps, and chrome://settings, but you’ll also see a lot of different…


As a college student, it’s nice to have a laptop to throw in the backpack for notes and work. The downside is the amount of stress being placed on said laptop, because a backpack isn’t the safest place for anything, let alone fragile laptops. So, I decided to have a dedicated laptop that stays in my backpack. However, I don’t have the cash for a brand new one, nor do I want to risk damaging a new one, so I use a…


Note: I wrote this back in 2018, but hopefully it can help a budget-minded college student today.

I’m a college student who likes taking notes digitally. For one, my handwriting is terrible, so I have trouble reading what I write. I also have poor organization skills, so I can’t find what I also can’t decipher. Thus, digital is the way to go for me. I initially went about this with a laptop. I had an old Dell Latitude D630 lying around, upgraded the hard disc drive to a speedy solid-state drive, maxed out the RAM to 8 GB because why…


Google is a fantastic productivity source for getting work done all in one Google account. With Google Drive, Calendar, Sites, and other apps, keeping track of what you need to do can be easy if you know how to maximize your experience.

1. Make a customized homepage for keeping track of daily plans
Customizing your browser’s homepage isn’t as popular as it used to be, with most people just using a search engine for their homepage, like… Bing, I guess. If you need to keep track of what’s due every day, you might want to consider making your own personal…


We live in a world where if something doesn’t happen instantly, it might as well never happen. The same goes for your computer, which is why most of the world seems to not use them anymore. Smartphones and tablets are popular in part because they’re lightning fast, and your computer may not be. Here are some helpful tips to try to speed up that old Windows machine.


I’ve decided to test this out. I purchased an HP Deskjet 2655 for dirt cheap, $25 on clearance, which is less than the cost of some printer’s ink cartridges. It’s not the smallest printer, but it’s very light. In the package includes the USB cable, which doesn’t come with many printers, the power cable, and the instructions. Since the printer does not have a touch screen, you will have to plug it into a computer for setup. You can visit 123.hp.com/dj2655 for the link to the drivers and instructions, but if you have Windows 8 or 10, I recommend going…


A few years ago, I bought a used Dell Latitude E6510 with an Intel Core i7, and 8 GB of RAM with the intention of having a fast laptop. On paper, it sounded like it made sense. However, when I turned on the laptop, it was far from fast. I figured maybe this could be a slow hard drive, which wasn’t helping, but something else was wrong. I was looking around in all the harder-to-find spots to see if something weird was installed, like a bad driver. I then noticed when I hovered over the battery icon that the power…


There’s a fantastic feature of Windows 10 that makes reinstalling Windows a breeze. On one of my laptops, I had a hard drive fail. Not a problem, it was a horrendously slow HDD and I was interested in letting it scream with an SSD. At the time, I didn’t know that Windows 10 saved information about the motherboard so I could reinstall Windows 10 without having a license on hand. So, for a year I was running various flavors of Ubuntu before I realized that today, on May 6th, 2017, I could just throw Windows 10 on a USB Drive…


With Windows 10, Microsoft is in an ongoing battle with developers to try to get more companies to develop Windows 10 apps, you know, the kind you get from the Windows App Store. The Windows 10 apps are designed so that no matter what device you’re on, whether it’s a traditional PC, tablet, phone, Xbox, or Hololens, it’s the same app everywhere. One thing traditional computer users might want to do is add a Windows 10 app to the desktop, or place it in a folder, so they have easy access to it. …
