On Mac OSX, you can use Bluetooth as a handy way to transfer files between computers, phones and other devices. However, it can be a little troublesome to keep opening “Bluetooth File Exchange” every time you want to send a file.
Luckily, OSX has us covered. There is a built in Keyboard Shortcut to send a file via Bluetooth. It is off by default, but easy to enable!
Simply go to System Preferences > Keyboard
Once there, click Services in the left-hand column, then look for the Files and Folders category.
Finally, find the Send File To Bluetooth Device option, and check the checkbox to enable the shortcut. If you like, change the keyboard shortcut to something you prefer more.
Now, any time you need to send a file, just highlight the file you want to send, hit cmd+shift+B (or your own specified shortcut) and the Bluetooth File Exchange window will open. All you need to do is choose a device to send it to!
This video will show you how to unmask a web password in just a few seconds, and why you should NEVER let your browser remember an important password.
How to Unmask a Remembered Browser Password:
Any of the following Browsers are required;
Internet Explorer 8+
Google Chrome (Or Any Chromium-based Browser such as Comodo Dragon)
Opera may work, but is untested
These instructions are for Chrome/Safari specifically. You should be able to find a way to do this in the other browsers, since most development consoles work the same way.
Type in the Username so the remembered password is typed in automatically.
Right Click the PASSWORD field and click Inspect Element.
Change the “type” of the password field from password to text
The password will be visible in the password field!
In HTML (the language Web is written in), there are many “input” types. These are things that the user can interact with, such as a checkbox, radio button, a textbox or a password field.
When an input tag is inserted, a type must be given, so the browser knows what type of data it is transmitting. A text field holds some text, like a username. A “password” type is a special type of text field, which holds and transmits a typed password, but blanks out each letter.
If a password field was set to “text” rather than “password”, it would still work, but it would show what you typed.
Many browsers now have built in development tools, which help web developers quickly fix problems. These allow developers to insert, change and remove code to preview the result of a page without putting it live on the server. These changes are immediatley interpreted by the browser.
So, by going into Chrome’s development tools and changing the password type to text, we can instantly see what was typed in!
THIS IS FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES AND PERSONAL USE ONLY! You should only use this to recover your own passwords. It is (probably) illegal to steal other people’s passwords and gain access to their private data. I am not responsible for your misuse!
About a year ago, my friend had a problem with his laptop where out of nowhere it decided to start throwing a “Blue Screen of Death” (BSOD). This happened upon every boot, around when the login screen said “welcome”.
The bluescreen’s error text read IRQL_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL. For your information – this generally is a driver problem. The driver in question was NDIS.sys.
After searching around, I tracked down that the problem was with the Atheros Wireless card in his laptop. I temporarily fixed the problem here by booting into Safe Mode and disabling his wireless card and ethernet card. The system now boots and works, but no networking. No good! I found that the ethernet card could be re-enabled with no further issues.
Now, down to the interesting part – fixing the problem. After about a week, through trial and error, I found a solution.
How to fix NDIS.sys BlueScreen of Death on Windows 7
NOTE: You might need to check below under the “Update” section, if my instructions don’t help.
Boot yourself into Safe Mode. Make sure you DON’T boot into Safe Mode with Networking. You will crash into another BSOD.
To boot into Safe Mode, power on the computer and wait for the BIOS splash to disappear. This usually displays your PCs Brand Logo. Then, press F8 repeatedly, lifting about once every second.You should see a black screen with white text and a list of options. Use the Arrow Keys to select Safe Mode and press Enter. You can safely ignore the list of drivers that appear as the computer boots.
Once logged in, open up Device Manager, by searching “Device Manager” in the start menu.
Open the Network Adapters category in Device Manager. Search for the Atheros device in the list. Double-click the adapter.
In the Properties window, choose the “Driver” tab and then choose “Update Driver”
In this popup, choose the “Browse my computer for driver software” option.
On the next page, choose “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. Ignore the browse field, it’s not important.
You should see a list of two drivers, with identical names except for brackets. The first one says (Microsoft)and the second says (Atheros).
The problem is Microsoft’s driver for this device causes a BlueScreen.
Choose Atheros’s driver and Click next.
Wait for it to install.
Once successfully installed, simply click close.
Close the Properties window, Close Device Manager and reboot your computer as you would normally (not Safe Mode).
If all has gone well, you should be able to boot up and use your WiFi absolutely fine!
Hope I helped!
A couple of people have commented saying this didn’t help them. Thanks to Ian E for his comment below on an alternative fix, using some of the above information. He used Safe Mode to disable the driver, and downloaded the latest driver from the internet.
