Speccy is the place to start if you need to know what's inside your PC. See a quick summary, or dive deeper into every aspect of your PCs hardware so you can make informed upgrade and purchasing decisions.

Flickr and ShutterflyThese sites have been around for years. Each allows you to upload your photos and create photo books and more. We were reminded that if you have an Amazon Prime account you can order prints online for 9 cents each and have them delivered anywhere in the US for free.

Flickr is almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world. Show off your favorite photos and videos to the world, securely and privately show content to your friends and family, or blog the photos and videos you take with a camera phone.

With Shutterfly, create photo books, personalize photo cards & stationery, and share photos with family and friends.

Setting a restore point and why
System Restore is an awesome system recovery tool, and it's included with Windows for free. It's the ideal solution for rolling back bad drivers, fixing when buggy software breaks your PC, or simply rolling you back to a previous point in time. We looked at how to create a restore point and how to recover from one.

! is a powerful and easy-to-use application that removes temporary files created while surfing the web, empties the Recycle Bin, deletes files from your temporary folders and more. Works good but why not CCleaner?

Photo Clip is a digital cutting tool that crops details, people, objects or even the entire background in your photos and removes annoying elements. Watch the video and be amazed. Looks well worth the one time price.

Valid Email AddressesThis website lets you type in an email address to test to be sure it is a valid address.

Geek Uninstaller
One user writes "The performance of Geek Uninstaller is impressive. It uninstalls quickly and finds leftover files that anyone couldn't. Overall, the app is an impressive maintenance tool that delivers on both performance and features. Highly recommended". Another good one is Revo which can be found on Ninite.

Microsoft changes how Windows 10 disconnects USB storage devices
Microsoft has modified the way Windows 10 handles the operation of disconnecting a USB or Thunderbolt storage device. This includes USB thumb drives, external hard drives, flash drives, and even USB data transfer connections established between PCs and smartphones. The change took effect with the wide deployment of Windows 10 version 1809, the October 2018 Update.
