Easy wallpaper search

Filed under: by: The Geekie

Technology ! ! One demerit is with its advancement in day-to-day life , earlier inventions goes extinct.

I am still using 15 inch CRT which companies have stopped manufacturing. Because of introduction of higher sizes monitors and thats too 17 ,19 inch CRT or LCD.

What I say is that...for wallpaper we keep on desktop. We visit different wallpaper sites like...well.. there are many...I dont need to say about it.

Lower size monitors require wallpapers with smaller resolution.And similarly the bigger monitors.

For 15 inch screen - Best Resolution that fits is 1024 x 768 where 1024 is width ,768 is height
For 17 inch/19 inch - 1600 x 1200
This varies for different monitor sizes and same for laptops which have wide screens. The resolution can be found from manuals given by manufacturer or you can go directly Right click on Desktop>Properties>Settings tab .

Here is the tweak to search wallpaper in Google.

Open http://images.google.com

In searchbox type imagesize: x WHATTOSEARCH .

E.g : imagesize: 1024x768 birds produced results as shown below


This is why I say Google i god of internet.

So enjoy searching perfect wallpapers for your desktop.

4- Go to Settings->Forwarding . Select Forward a copy of incoming mail to xxxxx@way2sms.com and click Save
5- Login in Way2sms and Go to Settings -> Mails Alerts . Select Alert me whenever an email reaches my inbox. In time settings select All 7 days and Round the clock. Click Save and Activate

"No To All" Functionality while copying files

Filed under: by: The Geekie

While copying a bunch of files from one location to another, Windows provides a handy "Yes To All" option to overwrite all files without prompting for each , but there exist no "No To All" option allowing copying of only the files that don’t already exist there, you will have to manually press “No” for every file to skip overwriting.

HACK==> Holding SHIFT and clicking the No button will act as "No To All" functionality and windows will not overwrite any file and won't bother you asking for each file.

Google Talk Tips and Tricks

Filed under: , by: The Geekie


With Google talk getting popular messenger these days, I would like to share some tricks ...the unsaid extra features.

Insert breaks - If you want to have multiple paragraphs in a message, hold shift and hit enter. Now you can add as many new lines as you want to create.

Format text - You can make text either bold or italic by surrounding it with * or _.
Example: _hello_ = hello
*hello* = hello

Font size - Hold the control key, move the scroll wheel on your mouse either up or down. But it only works in write are :(

Switch windows
- Hitting tab will cycle through open chat windows. Hit enter to expand the window.Cycling again to another window collapses the expanded one.

Innovative Buzz - You must be aware of 'Buzz' option in yahoo messenger. Gtalk doesnot have such feature. Just give a missed call in gtalk . Call a user and End the call immediately. It acts like Buzz :P .
