Folder Options X Brings Extra Features to Windows 7 Explorer

Folder Options X is a free Windows Explorer add-on that brings three simple features to Windows Vista and Windows 7 explorer.

The first thing you can do with Folder Options X does is disable full row select in Windows explorer. When you select files in Details view in Windows 7 explorer, the entire row gets selected. After disabling full row select, only the fill name gets selected. I’m not sure if this is useful, other than that it looks a bit better… or worse, depending on your preference.

The second option lets you enable column headers in all view. Column headers are visible only in the details view. The benefit of enabling column headers in all view is that you can sort files by file names, date, size, type etc, which was only possible in details view.

The third option enables drag and drop icon reordering.

You can revert any of this changes by launching Folder Options X and using the checkboxes to enable and disable any of the three features.

  2. I only needed to be able to manually rearrange files, and this program does it perfectly!

    I'm now one step closer to making Windows 7 obey me, rather than the other way around.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
