Knowing some geek tips and tricks is always great to save time and increase productivity. Today, I am going to share with you a secret weapon of Windows that will save you from a lot of headache.
Just press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to unleash this secret Weapon. What do you see? Task Manager? You already knew about it? Wait, there are things you still don’t know about it. Just hang on and we will dive into it.
This is what Task Manager is famous for. Usually it happens that your computer slow down and get hangged in the middle. It is because some programs are not-responding to you or taking too long. You can forcefully close those programs using Task Manager. You can see how to do it in below picture.

You can find how much Physical Memory, CPU and other Resources are being used by your computer at the moment. You can close unnecessary programs accordingly. Just click on the Performance Tab in Task Manager and you will find out everything.
There are some processes that run behind the scene without letting you know. Some of them are necessary for your Computer to run properly. While some of them are kind of unnecessary. You may close the later one as they are just a burden for you. To reveal background processes, just click on Processes Tab in Task Manager.
You may select any process from above and click on End Process to close it.
Some services start running as soon as you turn on your computer. Example for such services can be your Yahoo/MSN Messenger or maybe Skype, Antivirus is also a great example. Anyway, you can find those startup services and change their behaviour using Task Manager. To see those services, click on Services Tab in Task Manager.
To change their settings, click on Services button as shown in the above image. Another window will open.
Right Click on any Service to change its settings.
After writing all these things, I would say that using Task Manager can save your from a lot of headaches. One should really use it a lot, especially when your computer is hanged or working like a snail.

I love watching movies, specially with subtitles. Why use subtitiles? There can be multiple reasons for that. For Example:
Alright, enough with the talking. Now lets show what you are here to see.
So you have downloaded the movie and want to put subtitles on it. How you can do it? Well you can easily do it using VLC Player. Lets do it step by step.
Download VLC Player from Here if you don’t have it already.
There is one great site called SubScene to find subtitles. Just go there, type your Movie’s name and you will find tons of subtitles in multiple languages. Choose according to your need and download.
Play your movie using VLC Player, Stop it by pressing Space Bar. Now click on Subtitle tab, select Add Subtitle File.
Select the subtitle file you downloaded from subscene and click open.
Alright, if the subtitles are working properly and they are appearing on time, then it means you are done. If not, keep reading
Sometimes, subtitles are not synchronized with the voice of characters. They appear either too late or too early from the exact timing. You can correct this problem by either delaying or hastening the subtitles appearance.
After adding the subtitle file like I did above. Just click on Tools>Track Synchronization as shown in the image below.
A window will open, from there you can either delay or hasten the subtitles according to your need. For Example, if I set Subtitle Track Synchronization to 5.000s then it means subtitles will appear with 5 seconds delay. For -5.000s, subtitles will appear 5 seconds before their default timing.
