Windows 10 Is Automatically Downloading On Windows 7 And Windows 8

Keep this 5 things in mind:


1.Kill Wi-Fi sharing


By default, Windows 10 is set up to share your Internet connection over Wi-Fi. This is a nifty feature if you want it, and a dangerous one if you don’t. To be on the safe side, you should probably just disable it right from the get-go.

Open the Settings app from the taskbar or Start Menu, then open Change Wi-Fi settings and click Manage Wi-Fi settings. Now, uncheck all the boxes under “For networks I select, share them with.”
You may also want to slide the toggles to off underneath “Connect to suggested open hotspots” and “Connect to networks shared by my contacts.”

2.Customize the Start Menu

Ahhhhhhhhhhh! The Start Menu is back!
It’s OK, you can get excited. We won’t judge. Once you get past the simple fact that the Start Menu is there, however, it’s time to begin making the most of it.

3.Manage restarts

People… when something goes wrong with your computer, restarting is the first thing you should try. In fact, you should be restarting your computer regularly if you don’t shut it down each night. That said, automatic restarts after software updates that are unexpected can be very annoying. So here’s an important setting to tweak:
In the Advanced update section within Settings, select Advanced Windows Update options. Then, in the drop-down menu at the top, choose “Notify to schedule restart.”
This way, your computer will still restart regularly whenever updates are installed, but you’ll get a warning first.

4.Meet the Action Center

Microsoft’s spin on Apple’s Notification Center is called the Action Center. It might not be the most original feature in the world, but it’s quite useful and we listed it among the five best fixes for annoying problems in Windows 8. Live tiles are nifty, but having one location for all of your notifications is a welcome change.
Seriously, get to know the new Action Center.

5.Don’t let notifications own you

In Windows 10, you can adjust notifications settings by clicking the notifications icon in the system tray. The click All settings, followed by System and then Notifications & actions. Here, you’ll be able to pick and choose which apps can display notifications and which ones cannot. You’ll also be able to tweak a few additional settings pertaining to notifications.

Sony’s attempt to get back in lower mid-range segment.

Sony has been struggling the most to tap the smartphone market right and in yet another attempt they have tried to get under 15k segment which is by far the most crowded and difficult segment. It is heavily dominated by Chinese, South Korean Giant Samsung and now a little by Finnish comeback Nokia. So, has Xperia R1 (Rs. 12990) and R1 Plus (Rs. 14990) got what it takes? Let’s check out.


The design is the same signature (Boxy) Sony design which has started to show its age. The devices feel unmistakably Sony from any angle. They have a slim profile of 8 mm and weighs 150 grams as one would expect from Sony and should feel good in hand although as the edges are not curved, could dig deep in the palm with long usage. The screen to body ratio has never been Sony’s forte and this time is no different, the devices have unnecessarily huge bezels on top and bottom which make the devices look so 2015. The screen is a 5.2-inch 720p IPS display with 2.5D Curved Glass on both devices Coming to the S…
