Improved Windows Task Manager in Windows 8: Find and end applications and processes easier

Posted: 17 Oct 2011 05:38 AM PDT

If you're Windows user, than you probably know that Windows 8 has some of the new features such as the new and redesigned boot process and ability to log in with your Windows Live ID. However, in addition to these features, we also have to mention that Windows Task Manages has been improved as well.

During the years, Task Manager was filled with all sorts of information such as the list all active applications, processes and services, but that list was confusing to some users, therefore, Microsoft decided to simplify it a bit. Now, Task Manager is comprised of list of active applications, so you can easily end them with a single click. However, if you want to find out which process is taking most of your memory, you can click on more details button that will show you the list of all active applications and processes along with the CPU, memory, hard drive and network usage next to each process. That way you can find application or a process that takes most of your resources and easily shut it down.

Windows Task Manager in Windows 8 has been simplified, and this is a great addition for both average and experienced users as well.

Privacy update on Google+: Lock your posts and disable comments

Posted: 17 Oct 2011 03:59 AM PDT

Google is constantly adding new features to Google+, and after a feature that allows you to share your circles with your friends, Google decided to add few minor features that protect your privacy.



Great thing about Google+ is that you can choose with whom do you wish to share your posts, but there's no way to prevent your friends from sharing your posts with their friends. Users have been asking for this feature for a while, so Google added it to Google+ recently. Now before sharing something with your circles, you can lock your post so your friends won't be able to share that post with others. In addition, you can disable comments, but disabling comments won't stop others from sharing your post.

These two new features are a welcome addition to Google+, but only problem with them is that you cannot use them together, so you won't be able to lock your post and disable comments on a same post. However, we hope that Google will change this in the future.
