  1. Apart from the visible modifications adapted, Windows 8.1 raised its existing features to an extent. One of these latest enhancements is the optimized Power management feature. The settings of this feature are molded in such a way that the external devices attached to the PC become irresponsive, if not active for a specified time and it does have a certain reason behind this activity. Each of the modern time’s computing devices is specially designed to optimize its energy consumption. Microsoft has ensured to comply with this contemporary requisite in its latest version of operating syste
  2. The Internet’s down, everybody panic! If you’ve ever said that, out loud, maybe it’s time to start thinking about how to prepare for outages.

This works well in many situations, and you can use this method to completely wipe your computer clean and start from new. But what if you don’t want to wipe your computer clean? If this is the case, you’ll need to use a few specific utilities if you’d like to clean up your computer to return it to a near-new state. This method isn’t always quicker than reinstalling Windows, but it’s often preferable if you don’t want to worry about losing
  5. Have you tried system restore? First get yourself into the safe mode on windows.. turn on or restart your PC. Just before the Windows 7 logo screen "starting windows" appears, press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options..

  6. When moving to a new Windows system, either after getting a new computer or reinstalling Windows, you may be tempted to copy a program’s folder to your new system just like you’d copy your files.

Other programs specifically designed to be “portable apps” will also be able to do this. Why Do Programs Require Installation? When you install a program on Windows, it appears to only install to a specific folder, generally under Program Files. For example, Apple’s iTune
