    Like Google Chrome but want to use Microsoft's search engine? No problem! There are many reasons you might prefer to use Bing search over Google, like Microsoft Rewards, but equally, there's a strong case to use Google Chrome as your web browser.

If you want to swap, here's how to change Google for Bing as your Chrome search engine. Click on the three dots on the menu bar. Click settings. Scroll down to search engine. Select Bing from the drop-down box next to search engine used in the address bar.

    Use this hidden option to make sure there is always an up-to-date restore point to roll back changes in case of system issues on Windows 10. On Windows 10, System Restore is a feature that automatically checks for system changes on your device and saves a system state as a "restore point." In the future, if a problem occurs due to a change you made, or after a driver or software update, you can go back to a previous working state using the information from a restore point without causing data loss. When the feature is enabled supported apps and Windows 10 can create restore points during significant changes happen, and you can even trigger them manually. However, if you accidentally make a change without creating a restore point and there isn't a recent checkpoint created, you may not be able to revert back. Furthermore, if there is only an old restore point, you may end up undoing other system changes. If you want to make sure there is always a fresh restore point available, it's...

    The Groove Music shutdown is almost here. Here's one way to move your playlists to just about any other music service. As of December 31, 2017, Microsoft's Groove Music Pass will no longer be active. This means all the music you had in it will be gone for good, that is, unless you transfer your playlists out to another service. Microsoft and Spotify have partnered up to make it easy to move over your playlists, but while it's probably the biggest alternative platform, it's not necessarily the best for everyone. There are other services out there that you might prefer to use, like Amazon, Google Play Music, Deezer, even Apple Music. We've been hunting for one easy way to get music out of Groove and into any other service, and we've found Stamp. A single Windows application that will take care of it for you. Download Stamp for Windows What does Stamp do? Simply put, Stamp will hook into a number of music services and allow you to move your playlists between them. In this case...

    Not all hard drives are created equal. Here are four things you should consider when expanding the capacity of your Network Attached Storage (NAS). The issue with NAS is that, generally, hard drives are put under considerable stress with continuous operation. While desktop hard drives may survive the onslaught of use for a period of time — some may even last years — it's recommended to at least consider NAS-specific counterparts. Should you be considering a purchase that will work in a NAS and offer advanced features for enhanced durability, we've got some tips for you. Size matters when it comes to NAS Hard drives typically come in standard sizes, which dictate how much storage is available for use. NAS hard drives come in 1 terabyte (TB), 2TB, 3TB, 4TB, 6TB, 8TB, 10TB and so on — a single TB being 1,000GB. Since most users will be using a NAS for storage, you're going to want to ensure you have ample capacity available, since media can quickly take up all your space. ...

    You can compress the Windows 10 installation size to use less space, and in this guide, we show you how. Alongside many new features and changes, Windows 10 also includes additional improvements that are often overlooked because they are implemented under the hood. For example, if you haven't noticed, the installation now takes far less space than previous versions, which enables it to run on devices with smaller storage capacities. Microsoft even made changes to the recovery process to eliminate the use of a recovery image. Instead, if you ever need to reset your device, the OS will use the files already stored in the winsxs folder. Using this method, users can get around 4GB of space back. While they all are welcomed improvements your device will take advantage without additional configuration, you may need to reduce the drive usage even more, and this is when "Compact OS" comes in handy. Compact OS is a new mechanism that compresses all the installation files and preinstalled ...

    System Restore on Windows 10 allows you to send your PC back in time to undo changes that may be causing problems, and here's how to use it. Sometimes something just goes wrong. An install screwed up everything, or you were tinkering and stuff isn't working right anymore. Of course, you performed a full backup first, but Windows 10 also includes System Restore so you can easily revert system changes without losing your files. System Restore works by detecting system changes, such as in system files and settings, Registry, applications, and drivers, and saving a working state as a "restore point." If as a result of a misconfiguration your device experiences any issues, you can then use a restore point to undo the changes to fix problems that may be causing your PC to stop responding or affecting performance. By default, System Restore is disabled on Windows 10, but when enabled and configured correctly, it can automatically create checkpoints, but you can create restore points manu...
