Multiple Homepages in Internet Explorer 7

Yes,Its possible to have multiple homepages in IE7 instead of just one.
When you're at a page that you wanmt to add to your homepage list, click the down arrow next to the homepage icon.

Still sounds funny to me... What do we actually have this for. Liek a change-my-handset-everyday-dude,is it there for us to show-off what all pages have adorned my HOME in IE7 ... '

Anyways..

It so happens that you can also manage this from internet options.

Hidden Windows XP SoundTrack

Windows XP has a hidden sound track which plays as background music during Windows XP installation process, but most people can’t hear this music because they have a soundcard that won’t have drivers preinstalled on XP.

Here’s the way to uncover it:


Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\oobe\images, go to Tools > Folder Options > View, check Show Hidden Files and Folders options and then uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files. You will now notice a file called title.wma, that’s the hidden sound track!!


Easier alternative is to search for title.wma, but remember to include hidden files.

DivShare to stream MP3s now!

I consider DivShare as the best,among tons of file sharing/hosting sites out there, because they are free, fast and reliable. Moreover, they keep our files online forever. Now, they have announced a great new addition to their features list – MP3 Streaming. All your old as well as new MP3s will get a built-in Flash “Play” button.





Using the built in-flash player, your friends won’t have to download the MP3 in order to hear them. Unlike most of the audio hosting services, DivShare also provides an option to download them MP3.


See a live example here.

In the next few days, DivShare will introduce a new sharing option which allows you to embed flash MP3 player into your blog/profile. Like always, DivShare doesn’t like copyrighted music, so don’t upload them (even as private files).

DivShare needs to release an uploading tool, something like Uploadr for Flickr. It’s hard to upload multiple files (more than 5) using browser.

Showing Show Desktop

Sometimes we accidentally delete the "Show Desktop" icon in the quick launch menu.
You can manually recreate it by creating a file called "Show Desktop.scf".

  • Open Notepad,& type in the fiollowing:
[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe.,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

  • Save this File as "Show Desktop.scf" by selecting the "Save As" type as All Files-- to prevent the file being saved as "Show Desktop.scf.txt".

Now all you have to do is to drag this file to the Quick Launch Toolbar & your show desktop icon is restored.


There is yet another way ...
That is to use the Regsvr32 command.
  • Go to Start>Run and type in "regsvr32 /n /i:U shell32.dll"
This should restore the Show Desktop Icon
