The Style Ring is convenient, but if you want to get rid of it, here's how.
Having a Spigen Style Ring on your phone can really make a world of difference. I do a lot of event photography when I'm not binging true crime docs or writing up a storm, and it's the perfect tool for always ensuring my phone is in my hand without rendering the other useless as I carry it and my gear.
Style Rings make watching videos easier, car rides safer (with the little mount that comes with it), and your phone feel more secure in your hand: but what if you want to get rid of it? What if you're done twirling your phone around absentmindedly while you wait for the bus? What if you want to go back to dropping your phone on your face while you scroll through Instagram in bed?
Spigen Style Ring Review: The ultimate phone accessory
Regardless of your reasons for ridding yourself of your Style Ring, there are a few different ways you can do it. Here's how!

Splitting models is one of the easiest ways to get good prints.
There is a big difference between a 3D model and a 3D model designed for 3D printing. 3D printing a model requires a lot of specific parameters on the model to be exact for the print to succeed. For example, too big an overhang on a print will cause the printer to try and print in midair making it look stringy or may just collapse the model unless you use supports. By using supports, however, you can scar the surface of the print which you will then need to sand away before the print looks good.
So whats the answer?
Ideally, you want to be able to minimize the overhangs and supports on the model before you actually print it, and that's where splitting comes in. Using the split function in 3D builder you can slice a model into a number of smaller parts along certain planes or axis to reduce the need for support or to eliminate overhangs. In this How-To we will be using this model of a Rocketship made by hayling99 on ...
Anthem is Electronic Arts' highly-anticipated new role-playing franchise, currently on track for a February 22, 2019 debut. While extensive gameplay demos have outlined what's to come, we still have a lot to learn about the title.
If you can't wait for launch, the promise of early access lies ahead for select gamers. Details on these gameplay sessions are now beginning to surface, with steps to prepare for their arrival. We've broken down what to expect from Anthem "pre-launch demos," how to play, and their scheduled release.

What to expect from Anthem demo
The word "beta" is frequently used in video games as a blanket term for pre-release game access. These versions are from the later stages of development, though can simply be an early slice of the final product. While often valuable for network stress testing and last-minute refinements, they're mostly seen as a method of last-minute marketing. EA is being somewhat transparent fo...
Finally, a simple way to post 3D models.
In October 2017 Facebook debut the ability to share 3D objects in your Facebook posts. At the time it seemed like a fantastic new way of creating posts but ended up being painfully limited, the only devices that worked with it were Sony Android smartphones and the Oculus library of models, but with the Creators Update to Windows 10 we can finally share 3D models quickly and easily.
Using Microsoft Paint 3D you can convert any 3D Model into a .glb file, the format needed to post directly to Facebook. .glb is a pretty versatile file format, allowing you to create texture and paint your 3D models, albeit crudely in Paint 3D, and is used a lot in modeling for VR. Both Facebook's Oculus Rift and Microsoft's Mixed Reality can use .glb files to add 3D models into the 3D environment and when we can finally add our own models to the Cliff house I'm sure .glb will be the format they choose.

On Windows 10, the Mail app comes with the Calendar companion, and together they offer the default experience to manage multiple email accounts and calendars on your device.

You can prevent Windows 10 from dimming and restricting access to the desktop when you get an elevation prompt request, and in this guide, we'll show you how to do it.
On Windows 10, the User Account Control (UAC) feature works as an additional security layer to prevent malicious code from running undetected on your device. If the feature is enabled (by default it is), when an app requires administrator access, Windows 10 will display an elevation prompt requesting the user to approve or deny the action.
Depending on your settings, you probably noticed that when an app requires elevation, the user desktop dims to display the UAC prompt, and then you're temporarily blocked from the desktop until an administrator allows or denies the request, which is a behavior known as "secure desktop."
If you're noticing that dimming is taking a significant amount of time, or you prefer to retain an interactive desktop, you can disable the dimmed secure desktop using the User Account Control sett...

If you're having problems with a Windows 10 app, you can use these troubleshooting steps to get it up and running again.
On Windows 10, apps you acquire from the Microsoft Store or those that come preinstalled with the OS will sometimes suddenly "break." It could be that your app keeps crashing, you're unable to start it, or the app becomes unresponsive for no apparent reason. Other problems you may face with an app are issues trying to connect or sync content with a particular cloud service.
Whatever the issue, Windows 10 offers a number of ways to fix most common problems with Microsoft Store apps, as well as for built-in apps, such as Microsoft Edge, Mail and Calendar, and Photos.

If you bought a Dell XPS 15 (9570) with only 8GB of RAM, you may want to add more. Here's how to double, or even quadruple, the amount of RAM in your XPS 15.
Dell XPS owners upgrade their RAM to as much as 32GB of premium DDR4 2666 MHz memory, but doing so isn't exactly simple, due to specific RAM brands required and difficult-to-manage screws.
That why we put together this XPS 15 (9570) RAM guide.
Dell XPS 15 RAM: Faster or more (or both)?
Before going to the actual how-to, let's talk about why you want to upgrade your RAM. Chances are, you either want more RAM, faster RAM, or both.
If your XPS 15 has 8GB of RAM and you want 16GB, you can easily drop in more memory.
Is 32GB overkill in a laptop? Probably.
Faster RAM is a bit trickier. The XPS 15 (9570) ships with 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB of DDR4-2666MHz (CAS 19) memory, which is great already. The only way to really make it any "faster" is by buying RAM with better Column Address Select (CAS) latency, but this a dubious upgrade...
If you need a microSD card for the Surface Go, you should avoid the more expensive options. Here's why.
For some users, the included 64GB or 128GB of internal storage found in the Microsoft Surface Go may not be enough. Thankfully, unlike Apple and its iPad, Microsoft included the option to expand that storage with a microSD slot.
For the purposes of this story, we focused on 64GB memory cards. So which one should you get? The fastest and most expensive (Delkin, $80) or the best-selling and cheapest (Silicon Power, $15)? And what can you do with that card in Windows 10 and the Surface Go?
Check out this new Surface Go guide to microSD cards for answers.
How to expand Surface Go storage using microSD
Using a microSD card on Surface Go is very simple. You just slide it into the slot under the Surface Go's kickstand.
Windows 10 will recognize the drive, and you can begin using it right away. However, if you want to use it for apps, games, and more you need to tell the OS to do...
If you're encountering issues with your Xbox One NAT, UPnP could be an easy solution.
When encountering connectivity issues on Xbox One, your Network Address Translation (NAT) type is the first place you should look. NAT determines how easily you connect to other players, potentially limiting who you can enjoy games with. While various solutions can alter your NAT type, enabling Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is generally accepted as the first step.

When connected to Xbox Live and playing online games, you may have seen terms indicating the leniency of NAT types.

Keybinds are there to be changed for this very reason.
Have you wondered why your shooting game is on point in Fortnite, but you continue to lose out in the battle royale mode due to not being able to get the building mechanics working in sync? The issue could well be the default keybinds, which can cause issues with how you access walls, ramps, and more while focusing on landing those killing blows. I'm going to quickly run you through the process of changing keybinds to win more games.
By default, the building is handled using the first four function keys — F1 through F4. Yes, that layout is horrid. Luckily, Epic Games makes it easy to switch it up to something more accessible. Popular streamers have also changed their settings with different professionals opting for specific layouts. If you have a MOBA/MMO mouse like the Razer Naga or Corsair Scimitar, you could bind one of the side buttons to the building of objects.
Or you could choose keys that are easily accessible with...
