Change the Default Picture Editor Program with Windows 7 - Vista - XP

You probably wanted to change your default picture editor application to something else then "Paint", which comes with all versions of Windows OS and is usually the default picture editor program. Yeah, but what is "Default Picture Editor?"... It is the default program that lunches, when you "right" click on a picture file, and you choose "Edit" from the drop down menu that appears. Or, when you are just looking at your pictures with Windows Picture Viewer and you click on "Edit", the default Picture editor application must start...

To use a program of your choice as a default editor, all you have to do is change a registry key in the Registry of your computer. Follow these steps to do that.

1- "Run" (windows key + r) and type "regedit"


2- From Regedit, browse until this branch


[HKEY_CLASSESS_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\edit\command]


3-At right pane of the registry, you will se the "default" key with "%windir%\system32\mspaint.exe".


4- Double click on this key and change the value to the exact path of your application. In this example, I'll set my application to "Paint.Net" and it's already installed on my computer. My main .exe file which starts the program is "C:\Program Files\Paint.Net\PaintDotNet.exe" "%1"




YOU HAVE TO COPY THE PATH INCLUDING ("")


5-Click on OK after changing the registry key value to the one that you want to set up. And you are all set to go.


Try to right click on a picture file and choose "Edit" from the menu and tell me please... What is yours? :)


Have a good one people...

10 tips for improving your wireless network

http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx

"Wireless networks never reach the theoretical bandwidth limits. 802.11b networks typically get 2-5Mbps. 802.11g is usually in the 13-23Mbps range. Belkin's Pre-N equipment has been measured at 37-42Mbps."

Firefox 3.6 Detects Screen Orientation

Future iterations of Mozilla's browser, starting with the upcoming version 3.6, will be capable of detecting your computers orientation; Firefox will then use that real-time positioning information to impact how the browser displays applications and webpages.
The new feature, which was revealed by Mozilla's Christopher Blizzard on Monday, was originally developed for mobile browsers but has now been made available, via an API, for a range of devices including Macbooks, Thinkpads and Linux machines. Achieving the desired tilting effect is made possible due to the hardware being equipped with accelerometers, such as the Macbook Pro in the video below:





This new feature is just one of several ways Mozilla is taking Firefox beyond its typical application and exploring how its software can be used in a wider range of instances. Orientation technology could be seen in a number of situations such as on a tablet device, or in a range of browser based games.
More details, including how to make use of the API event, can be found over on Mozilla's Hacks blog. Firefox 3.6 is due for release later this year.

WSXGA Wide XGA+

WSXGA and WXGA+ are non-standard terms referring to computer display resolutions. Usually they refer to a resolution of 1440x900[citation needed], but occasionally manufacturers use the terms to refer to other resolutions (for example, [1]). The Standard Panels Working Group refers to the 1440x900 resolution as WXGA(II)[1].

WSXGA and WXGA+ can be thought of as enhanced versions of WXGA with more pixels, or as widescreen variants of SXGA. The aspect ratios of each are 16:10 (widescreen).

WXGA+ (1440x900) resolution is common in 19" widescreen desktop monitors (a very small number of such monitors uses WSXGA+), and is also optional, although less common, in laptop LCDs, in sizes ranging from 12.1" to 17".
