This trick requires some hardware, but it is certainly interesting. It enables us to make our hardware address to be different in each wireless connection and therefore to be more difficult to trace using typical tracking wireless networks applications.

How to set default programs, file type and Library Save locations in Windows 10

When you want to use a file (either text, music, video, PDF or a website), Windows 10 searches the list of applications, files, protocols and partnerships by default to launch the right program. This list can be customized, adapting it to your favorite software.

1: Choose the default applications

When you play a video or try to read a text, Windows 10 chooses a default application depending on file type. These are the default programs, and by default Windows gives preference to its own applications. If you open a website it will do it with Microsoft Edge, and if you try to read a PDF document it will do it with PDF Viewer.

To delete data from a hard drive properly, a rewriting process of all sectors is performed recursively. That is, the hard disk is completely rewritten repeatedly in a write loop, which makes the recovery of residual data to be an almost impossible task.

Erase a hard drive completely

Simply select the drives that you want to delete and run the action. The standard method used is DOD Short. This method, designed years ago by the Department of Defense of the United States, uses a triple writing in each sector of the disk. First a character, its complementary character and then a definite a random character. Subsequently a check is made. It has been used for years and though some experts describe it as obsolete, it certainly is a fairly reliable method for the type of information that a home user would leave on its hard drive.

How to Configure Privacy in Windows 10

Since the release of Windows 10, there have been plenty of detractors ranting in their reviews on the collection and use of personal information that Microsoft makes with their new OS version. Some are furious and use the term ‘big brother’ and how they have gotten away with spying users. Privacy in Windows 10 is in question but in our opinion, these claims are exaggerated.

The news of massive spying programs from agencies such as NSA and the alleged omission by act or the large technology companies seemingly looking the other way have triggered concerns about user privacy issues.
