Notepad is capable to underline and strikeout your texts, but this feature can’t be found from menu. To do this you have to make some change in your registry. Don’t forget to backup your registry before you make some changes. Follow these steps to do this.

  1. Click Start > Run > type ‘ regedit ‘ to open your Registry Editor.
  2. In the left pane find this path:


  1. To make underline find ‘ lfUnderline ‘ in the right pane. Double click it and change value to ‘ 1 ’. Close your Registry Editor.

Googling MP3s, WMAs, OGGs, and Other Music Files

The purpose of sharing this tip is not to support music piracy, but for education only. Here how I googling music:

Open Google search engine and then put this string in search box:

‘ -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "Last modified" mp3 ‘

Hit search button.

Using this string we are using the "index of" and the inurl commands to attempt to isolate directories only. The mp3 tag on the end tells Google to look for mp3s in these open directories. You can change this to wma or ogg if you wish.

Treat *.bin, *.cue, *.iso as virtual CD or DVD without burning them.

You can save your blank CD and your blank DVD and finally save your money if you learn this one. I got a lot of *.bin, *.cue, *.iso from the net, before learn this I always burn those file in CD or DVD to be able to open those file, but now I never need CD or DVD to open those file. Don’t know about those file, here a little information for you: those file extensions are commonly used to show that a file is an image of a CD or DVD. The simplest way to access these files is to use your CD or DVD Burner to burn them to a disk. Nero is a common program that is used to burn bin/cue files to hard media.

If you don’t want to burn those files in CD and DVD than you can use a program to make virtual drive in your computer, and after that you can load those file in virtual drive and then open those file just like open CD or DVD. I personally used ‘Daemon Tool’ and ‘Nero’ as programs that provide me virtual drives. You can search internet for Daemon Tool, and the good news is this program is free.

Enjoy ...
