How To: Execute .SH Files on Windows

These script files were not developed for Windows and only work on Unix systems (Linux and MacOS, plus many others, less popular).

What is a .sh file?

Developer files known as scripts that the Bash application programs and uses. SH files are known to be created and stored in the Bash language because the instructions they contain are written in that language. SH files can be executed when text commands are entered in the shell command line interface. SH files are mainly used by program developers and these files are important for the Bash application because the application mainly uses scripts and commands that must be executed for this application to work. And since SH files are the scripts programmed with this application and contain the commands to run the program, they are indeed important. The commands contained in SH files vary, and the SH file extension is now developed into an interactive shell, although it is originally a scripting language. Programs such as C-Shell, Korn Shell and Bourne Shell also use SH files to store scripts. read more

How To: Convert an Image to PNG Format in Windows 10

PNG files (commonly called “ping”) are a format that contains bitmap or raster images. Originally, the PNG image format was created to adopt the GIF format, since both have the ability to display transparent backgrounds. Another similarity between the two is the use of indexed colors and lossless compression. However, PNG files do not have the same copyright restrictions. Unlike GIF images, files with the PNG extension do not support animation.

PNG and JPG (JPEG) formats are very popular. The best choice depends on your objectives. PNG uses lossless compression to maintain the best image quality. JPG uses lossy compression and high compression rates that significantly reduce the size of image files while maintaining good image quality. This compression is the reason why you might want a PNG to JPG converter, as it allows you to free up hard disk space. read more
