Many of you complained about bugs being still active in Windows Explorer, even after a lot of time since the Windows 7 launch. We read your complaints and we tried to find fixes for them. Today, we are happy to present a free tool called Classic Shell, which can help you fix some of the most annoying bugs in Windows Explorer: the jumping folders in the navigation pane and the missing sorting headers in list view. Also, it can replace the navigation arrows introduced by Windows Vista with the crosses and lines from Windows XP era.
If you are like me, you surely installed quite a few add-ons for Internet Explorer 9, simply to extend its functionality and get more out of it. However, by doing so, you also impact its performance. Depending on how many and what add-ons you install, the load and navigation speed can sensibly increase. Luckily, Internet Explorer 9 has a very cool functionality which allows you to evaluate the performance impact of add-ons and disable those creating problems. Let’s see how this works.
Do you have a brand new computer on which you need to install and configure everything: from the operating system, to drivers, applications, plug-ins, etc.? Do you need to delete everything from an "old" computer and reinstall it all from scratch? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you are in luck! After setting up many computers (both old and brand new), I managed to create a checklist with steps you must go through, in order to have the best experience possible: without (too many) crashes, in the least possible time and in a secure way. This article shares the most optimized list of steps you need to go through, in order to have everything working correctly.
One of the things missed in previous versions of Internet Explorer is having an ad blocker, such as the famous AdBlock extension which has versions for Firefox, Chrome or Opera. With Internet Explorer 9, the functionality required to block ads is built-in in the default browser and it is called Tracking Protection. There’s no need to install any add-ons. You simply need to subscribe to the appropriate protection lists. This tutorial will show how.
After showing how to install and also remove Internet Explorer 9 add-ons, I thought it would be useful to share with you some of the best add-ons you can find for Microsoft’s latest browser. Therefore, I searched for a couple of days and tested lots and lots of add-ons: from very broken add-ons to terribly useful ones. Now that this exercise is finished, this is my list of "Top Add-ons for Internet Explorer 9".
Have you installed add-ons for Internet Explorer 9 which you no longer need? Or do you simply need to use them on rare occasions? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then read this tutorial. You will learn how to disable add-ons (which can be enabled back later) or remove unwanted add-ons.
Since we just demystified Internet Explorer 9 add-ons and what they do, it is only natural to show how to install such add-ons on your computer. This tutorial will cover everything you need to know on the subject. Read more to find out.
If there’s one thing I ‘hated’ about Internet Explorer 9 since day 1 is the fact that, by default, it shows both the address bar and the list of opened tabs on the same row. This translates into one crowded top row which quickly becomes unusable. How do you solve this problem? Well... the solution is pretty simple - you can set Internet Explorer 9 to show the opened tabs on a separate row. Let’s see how.
First there was handwriting on paper. Then, typing on paper with a typewriter. Then, typing on a keyboard that resembled a typewriter’s, that showed up on a computer screen. And now—handwriting on a computer! Have we come full circle?
If there’s one thing that is likely to confuse you about Internet Explorer 9, it is add-ons and the different types available. This is the only browser that currently has four types of add-ons (some even with sub-types). Therefore, we decided to help clear the mystery and explain each type and sub-type of add-ons in detail, so that you understand what they do and how you can use them.
In previous tutorials about Tablet Input Panel, I’ve shown how to use it and how to personalize it so it’s in tune with your handwriting.There are a few remaining things you can do to make it even easier, like using special pen movements to speed up and simplify text entry and editing.
