YouTube Introduced An Awesome Feature - Must Look

While watching YouTube videos, we often get a call from someone or something pops up on our desk that makes us close the browser. Now when we come back, we are usually unable to recall where we left the video. So we usually bounce around the seekbar to get to the point where we left. Some of us, even watch the whole video all over again.

    You don't need to do that anymore. Because now, YouTube shows you the duration of video that you have already watched. So it helps you in resuming the video exactly from where you left.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Login to your YouTube account

  3. It will show you videos that you have previously opened.

How to Quickly Minimize Everything and Switch to the Desktop?

Quite often, we feel the need of minimizing everything and switch to the desktop. I see people minimizing all the windows one by one in order to make their way clear to the desktop. It takes a lot of time. Instead, you can do it quickly with a shortcut key.

For Windows Users

Hold the Windows Key and press D. It will minimize all the currently opened programs and take you to the desktop. You may simple press again Windows Key + D to restore the previously opened programs.

For Linux Users

Hold the Super Key and press D. It will minimize the currently opened programs and switch to the desktop. But if you are using Ubuntu 13.10 or any later version, you will need to press Ctrl + Super Key + D .

For Mac Users

Simply press the F11 key if you are using the old versions of OS X. On a MacBook you will have to press
Fn Key + F11, as the F11 key alone is used to control the volume by default.

You can save yourself from getting caught by your boss or anyone else using the above shortcut key. Don't forget to share this with your friends or colleagues. I am sure it will be quite useful for them :)

Just click on the buttons given below. Thanks :)

2) On left side, there will be shown the names of databases.

3) You need to know your database name. It is where your WordPress password is stored. So you can reset it.

7) After you clicked on Edit, you will see some kind of a form on next page. In the 3rd row, you will find user_pass field. In the same row, click on the drop down menu in Function column and select MD5. Just like shown in the below picture.

5 Tips to Create a Strong and Easy to Remember Password

How can you create strong password to protect yourself from hackers and social engineers? I will share with you my personal tips, to create a password that is impossible to be guessed or cracked for your online accounts. Before going to unveil them, feel free to check my below blog post also :)

1) Sentences, NOT Words

Your password should not be a single word, it should be a sentence (if you have any issue memorizing long passwords, don't worry. I will tell you how to cope with it.). For example:
Instead of setting password such as school16, worker29 or play909 etc, your password should look like this:
  • loveplayingfootball909
  • heworksreallyhard29
  • ihategoingtoschool16

How to memorize long passwords? 

It's very simple. Just remember the first letter of every word. For Example:
lpf909 i.e loveplayingfootball909 or hwrh29 i.e heworksreallyhard29 etc

2) Start with a Capital Letter & Include Numbers

A Sentence always starts with a capital letter, right? and when you are saying good bye to any stranger in the end, most probably you exchange phone numbers, right? Hope you got the idea. 

Always start your password with a capital letter and include any number in the end of your password. First 2 sentences will help you recall your password, in case you forget it in future. 

For Example:

3) Include Special Characters but Don't Overdo it

It is nice to use special characters in your password but don't overuse them, or it will be hard for you to memorize. Also it will eat up your time each time you will be entering your password.

4) Use Spaces

Spaces are a really great way to annoy hackers. Once I got infected by a keylogger, hacker could literally see my password. But still he was unable to login to my account, because I had used couple of spaces in my password, especially in start and the end which he did not realize (Such a dummy) :p

5) Keep them Irrelevant

Yes right, your password should not contain anything related to yourself. For example:
  • Don't use your Birth date
  • Avoid using your Mobile Number
  • Also no pet name.
  • Or Name of any of your siblings

Because above information must have been out already and someone use it to guess your password. We call it Social Engineering, where you guess someone's password to access their account.

Alright guys, hope you are able to create metallic passwords for your accounts and simultaneously won't face any problem memorizing them.
