    You can further customize your app experience by personalizing their startup color on Windows 10. Here's how. Alongside the slew of new features and changes, Windows 10 brings a new version of apps that work across devices and adapt to any screen size. The operating system comes bundled with some of these apps, including Photos, Alarms, Calculator, Xbox, Microsoft Edge and many others. Of course, you can get more from the Store, which is the one-stop-shop to get thousands of additional apps. While each app is different, most of them include a settings page to customize various options. However, the one thing that every app has in common is that they don't offer an option to change the splash screen color you see every time you launch the app. You'll notice that some apps will take the color accent from your current theme, and some other apps display their signature colors like the Xbox app with its green color and Microsoft Edge with its characteristic blue color. In this Windo...

    Which animals can be tamed, and which can be bred? What do you need to make them do this? There are many different uses for domestic animals in Minecraft. They are a great source of materials, whether that may be from killing it for its leather and meat, shearing it for its wool, or milking it for milk and shroom soup. But we need to get the animals together to make babies. Don't get your hopes up for some 70's smooth jazz — this guide is totally safe for work. Lead Mode Love Mode Taming Villager breeding Lead Mode All domestic animals can be lead if you present them with their favorite food.

Love Mode When you have two animals together in the same vicinity, and you want to br...

    If you don't like the new User Account Control prompt on Windows 10, here's how you can bring the old style back. On Windows 10, Microsoft is not only adding new features and improvements, but it's also changing the look and feel of the operating system with a modern user-interface. Almost every time a new update rolls out, we can see some of these UI changes. After installing the Anniversary Update, you might have noticed that Windows 10 has a new User Account Control (UAC) dialog box when an application needs administrative permissions or when you need to authenticate entering a username and password. The new UAC prompt uses the same design language that Microsoft is using throughout the operating system and on the new Store apps. However, if you're not so enthusiastic about the new dialog prompt, Windows 10 allows you to go back to the old style. In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to modify the registry to disable the new User Account Control dialog b...

    Overclocking your PC or configuring various settings can help extract more performance out of installed components without having to fork out on replacements. This usually requires a trip into the motherboard BIOS to fiddle with advanced settings, but those with a compatible ASUS motherboard will be able to take advantage of the manufacturer's AI Suite to quickly squeeze out more power. Installing the AI Speedy setup Advanced configuration Other Settings Notice Before we get started with AI Suite, we should point out that if you're serious about getting more from your PC for gaming and other demanding tasks, we highly recommend you spend a little time in reading through the various BIOS settings at hand. Software like AI Suite should only really be used as a backup if you're not confident in altering BIOS settings yourself, or do not wish to reboot the PC multiple times to achieve the perfect balance in performance and stability.

    Keep your files protected from hard drive failure using the mirrored volume feature built-in on Windows 10. It's not a matter of "if," it's a matter of "when." Sooner or later the hard drive on your computer will die, and the odds are that you will lose all your files stored on that drive. Of course, there is a number of ways to prevent data loss. You can, for example, keep a current backup of your computer, you can make copies of your files to an external drive, or you can store your data in the cloud. However, similar to previous versions, Windows 10 includes a feature that let you mirror the data on one drive into another to offer data protection from a drive failure. In Windows, we call the feature "mirror," but the concept actually comes from the standard RAID levels, which define a number of techniques to combine multiple hard drives to offer speed, redundancy, or performance. On the standard RAID levels, "mirror" is defined as RAID 1, and it consists of having an exact b...

    Getting a lot of emails from Beam? Here's how to make it stop. By default, at least in my experience, Beam seems to send an email notification every time someone you follow on the service goes live. If you follow a lot of frequent streamers that can get very old, very fast. Fortunately, it's easy enough to manage which channels send you notifications or just make them go away altogether. It's not the most obvious thing to access, but here's what you need to do. Log in to Beam. Click on your avatar in the top right-hand corner to bring out the menu. Click on account. Along the top, you'll see four tabs. Click on the one labeled notifications. To turn off completely, uncheck the email box under all channels. This will completely disable all email notifications. If there are some channels you want to keep getting them from, this same menu allows you to do this on an individual basis. Simply check the boxes next to the ones you want. That's all there is to it. Hopefully, now ...

    If you're a developer working with both Linux and Windows, you can now add Bash shell on Windows 10 to run Linux commands. Here's how to install the tool. Microsoft continues to invest on making Windows 10 the best productivity operating system, and in the Anniversary Update, the company is not only including great improvements and changes, but also adding a big feature for developers. We're talking about the Linux Bash shell, and this is a big deal. Bash shell is simply a command-line utility that has been part of Linux for a long time, and it's often used by developers. Microsoft added it directly into Windows 10 with the Anniversary Update, and everything works thanks to the new Windows Subsystem for Linux. Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10 works natively — there is no emulator, virtual machine, or anything of that sort. Microsoft and Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu) collaborated to bring a version of Bash that runs in the new subsystem alongside Windows applications. But don...

    What is MU-MIMO and why is it important in a router? The long and steady march of technology has brought newer and more complex acronyms to Wi-Fi routers. The latest is MU-MIMO, which stands for multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output. Released with the 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless standard back in 2013, it is being employed in many new wireless routers and new devices, and it jumps the hurdles of older technologies to enable faster and more stable wireless connections. What is SU-MIMO and MU-MIMO? The downside of MU-MIMO Do I need MU-MIMO? Which devices are compatible with MU-MIMO? Which routers use MU-MIMO? What is SU-MIMO and MU-MIMO? The majority of routers today employ SU-MIMO technology that, while providing wireless internet to multiple devices, has its limitations. SU-MIMO was introduced with the 802.11n wireless standard in 2009. SU-MIMO allows you to connect multiple devices to the same wireless router, but the transmission of data can only happen to one device at a t...

    If you're looking for a permanent solution to disable Windows Defender, in this guide we show you how to turn it off using Group Policy and the Registry. Windows Defender is the free antivirus software that Microsoft includes on every installation of Windows 10 (and Windows 8.1). The security software is meant to offer the first line of defense to protect your computer against viruses, rootkits, spyware, and other types of malicious code. The antivirus runs automatically on your computer, but it'll disable itself automatically when it detects another security software is installed on your device. The only caveat is that unlike the Windows Defender integration with Windows 8.1, you can't permanently disable the antivirus anymore. Perhaps the reason is obvious, Microsoft doesn't want you to use Windows 10 with zero protection -- which it's a good reason. However, there are still those cases where users may prefer not to run an antivirus on particular scenarios. For example, on a kio...

    What do I need to know about dungeons? Discovering a dungeon in Minecraft for the first time leads to a lot of questions. You can see a chest or two, but there seems to be an endless supply of monsters headed your way. To help you conquer the dungeon and loot the treasure, here are five things you need to know before you go exploring! What are dungeons? What should I bring with me when looking for dungeons? How do I find dungeons? How do I stop mobs from spawning? What items will I find in a dungeon chest? What are dungeons? Dungeons are naturally occurring areas that are found underground in the Overworld. They are either 5x5, 7x7, or 5x7 blocks in size, and are generally made up of cobblestone and mossy cobblestone. In the center of a dungeon is a monster spawner that spits out either zombies, skeletons, or spiders when you enter within a 16-block radius. A new monster will spawn, on average, about every 25 seconds, but can spawn as quickly as every 10 seconds. Within a du...

    If you like to see the images and apps status on the Lock screen, but the display goes black in about a minute, then use this guide to change the Lock screen timeout setting on Windows 10. On Windows 10, similar to Windows 8.1, the operating system features a Lock screen before you sign in to your account. The new experience showcases date and time, quick status for apps you choose, and more importantly a background image, which typically, users opt to display personal pictures or those from Windows Spotlight. While the Lock screen provides useful information and beautiful pictures, you probably noticed that your computer's display turns off after 60 seconds when you lock your Windows 10 account. This happens even if you change the power options to never turn off the monitor or never put the computer to sleep. The reason is that by design, the operating system includes a function that detects when the device is locked and waits for 60 seconds. After the time expires, the computer ...

    What are biomes? Minecraft divides the Overworld into biomes, which are essentially connected areas with a variety of specific features, adding a sense of exploration to your game.
