Show Desktop in Windows 7
I've seen all sorts of little tips and tricks on how to get your show desktop icon back in Windows 7, but the truth is that most of them are too complicated to explain here.
And honestly, why do we need a show desktop icon proper when there's already one in the lower right-hand corner of your screen?
If you click it your desktop becomes visible; hold your mouse pointer over it and the open windows on your desktop will fade. It's just like the show desktop icon of the old days, only better!
Give it a try!
What's the quickest way to the Task Manager?
All about speed, eh? Well, the quickest and easiest way to get to your Windows Task Manager is simply to right-click an empty area of your Task Bar and choose “Start Task Manager”.
Ta-da! An instant view of what your system is doing!

Google is the most used search engine in the world today, because of its remarkable performance. The new internet browser, Google Chrome, has Google search capabilities embedded right within the search bar. This is making a lot of people switch from other browsers into Google Chrome. Fortunately, Firefox has an addon called CyberSearch. This addon almost works like the Google Chrome address bar, and makes surfing a lot easier. This article will show you how to easily do this.
Step 1- Download and Install Firefox
You must have the Firefox browser to do this. In order to download Firefox, go to:
You should then see a download link to download the browser.

Oh gosh, I don’t usually direct you right to the About Us page; but then again, I don’t usually find an about page that is this well written and really lays out what the site is all about for you. Thus I am recommending that you check it out.
What I really love about this site is that it lives up to its About Us page. Not only are they bringing you the latest in tech, science, and gadget news, but they are also offering you guides and reviews. All of which are in a conversational tone that make them a joy to read.
I also love that at this site they are not devoted to anyone platform, or operating system; because that means anyone can find news, guides, or reviews that pertain to their own preferences.
Without a doubt this is by far and away one of my favorite go-to sites for technological news, reviews, and a healthy dose of science! Check it out today!
