Pictures Folder Jumps Back To Top When Scrolling

Here is an odd issue that we had the other day. Windows 10.

Anytime the end user tried scrolling down in his Pictures folder, after about 6 seconds it would jump back to the top.

Very annoying.

Click on START (windows button, lower left side) Gear icon is right above it aka Settings
Click on SETTINGS
Click on Personalization
Click on COLORS
Then uncheck – Automatically pick an accent color from my background

Fixed it!

Approach Shots Tips | One Move to Pure It

Get used to this left-arm rotation with half shots. Shorten your back-swing, then rotate your left arm through. It will feel as if you’re directing the clubhead out toward the ball. You’ll start striping it.

Solar Cells on Your Smartphone:

SunPartner Technologies hopes to finally bring to the consumer market its Wysips Crystal technology, which overlays “invisible” solar cells onto the smartphone display. The company claims that Wysips, which stands for “What You See Is Photovoltaic Surface,” can capture energy from any light source, natural and artificial, indoor and outdoor, and convert it at a rate of 15 to 20 percent efficiency. This translates to an additional 1o minutes of talk time for every hour the cells are exposed to light. And the kicker is that the company assures everyone that human eyes won’t even notice the thin layer of solar cells that’s embedded into the touchscreen.

What is a Phishing Attack?:

A phishing attack is a specific form of cyber crime. The criminal creates an almost 100 percent perfect replica of a chosen financial institution’s website, then attempts to trick the user in to disclosing their personal details – username, password, PIN etc – via a form on the fake website, allowing the criminal to use the details to obtain money.

Phishers use various techniques to trick users in to accessing the fake website, such as sending emails that pretend to be from a bank. These emails often use legitimate logos, a good business style and often spoof the header of the email to make it look like it came from a legitimate bank. In general, these letters inform recipients that the bank has changed its IT infrastructure and asks all customers to re-confirm their user information. When the recipient clicks on the link in the email, they are directed to the fake website, where they are prompted to divulge their personal information. Read on

How to Boot into Safe Mode in Windows 7:

Safe Mode is for those situations in which you cannot boot your Windows 7 normally because of software issues. In order to do this, you basically hold down your F8 key while your computer is starting up, immediately after turning it on. Some systems may get a stuck key error for doing this, for those cases simply tap the F8 key rapidly instead of holding it down.

This will bring up the Advanced Boot Options window, in which you are able to choose to boot in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt among several other options. Use the arrow keys to select one of these and hit Enter.

Now you can uninstall that software you just downloaded, or with Networking support you can update drivers. If you system is really having issues, use Last Known Good Configuration instead of Safe Mode. Read on

How to Transfer iTunes to Your New PC

If you just bought a new computer, more than likely it is a Windows 8 PC. And if you use iTunes, we will show you how to move your iTunes library to your new Windows 8 PC.

First: Find your iTunes Library. (This only works if you were using iTunes to organize your music. Any music you uploaded into iTunes’ interface are automatically copied and placed into a specific location by the program)

Pull up iTunes’ Preferences windows and click its Advanced icon. iTunes will tell you exactly where it’s keeping its Media folder. Navigate to this location within Windows Explorer and copy all the directories representing your music to some kind of external storage device.

iTunes’ ability to automatically organize your music library folder is an invaluable tool when it comes to moving your music around. In other words: Don’t just copy your music in File Explorer!

Before you go dumping these tunes onto your new Windows 8 PC, download and install iTunes, and then go back to the same Preferences > Advanced window on your new PC.

Make sure the location you want iTunes to use for your new Media folder is set, and check the following two options: “Keep iTunes Media folder organized,” and “Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library.”

From there, all you have to do is drag-and-drop the folders full of music on your external drive directly into your new, empty iTunes folder on your Windows 8 PC—the app will take care of the rest.

What is Catfishing?

Catfishing is a kind of social engineering. It’s similar to messages that claim that your computer has a virus, that you’ve won a lottery, or that you can earn money for little or no effort on your part. All of these scams are designed to “hook” you with fear, vanity, and too-good-to-be-true offers. The cybercriminal in a catfishing scam might post fake pictures or send encouraging messages to entice you into a relationship, but the goal is the same as in other scams: The scammer wants to steal your personal information, your money, or both. Read on

Rickie Fowler | Pitch It Close To Any Flag

inil01_fowler_580

No matter where the flag is, I like to think about making the same little backswing, with my grip light so the weight of the clubhead hinges my wrists. If I want to vary the height, I need to make only slight adjustments in my setup and release. If the pin’s in the front of the green, there’s a setup to hit the ball higher and stop it fast; if the pin’s back, there’s a setup to hit it lower and let it run. When all you have to do is adjust your setup and picture your finish position, your mind can stay clear during the shot.


1. STANDARD PITCH
This is the shot to master before you start messing around with different trajectories. It’s also what to hit when the pin is in the middle of the green. In this setup you want the ball in the middle of your stance (pin middle, ball middle — easy to remember). Set your hands slightly ahead to give the shaft some forward lean. Then just flow that heavy wedge back until your wrists start to hinge. Feel a pause, then swing through like it’s a normal impact. At the finish, I’ve released a medium amount so the clubhead is just ahead of my hands (top image, right).


2. LOW PITCH
When the pin is back, play the ball in the back of your stance, about even with your right instep. Here you want the most shaft lean, so bring your hands pretty far forward, close to your left thigh. I might narrow my stance to move weight to my left side, but what I really want to focus on is keeping my hands ahead of the clubhead all the way to the finish. This low, limited release makes it easy to control how far the ball will run out (top image, center).


3. HIGH PITCH
For front hole locations position the ball in the front of your stance. Open the clubface some to add loft, bringing your hands back so they’re in line with the ball. The shaft should point straight down. In my finish, I let the clubhead release fully so it gets at least to waist high (top image, far left). This will shoot the ball up so it can settle fast. Now just make the putt.
