How to use a Mac formatted HFS+ drive on Windows

File management plays the most important role on a computer system. It controls how data is stored, organized and retrieved from storage media. In other words, it simply separates the data on the drive and marks it with file names and other attributes as well as indexing. Without the file management system, the data would be stacked in a large frame, without the beginning and end of the information being traceable. All computer systems such as Windows, Mac and electronic devices such as ATM, smartphones use file systems that can vary depending on the system. read more

Your graphics card does not support alpha blending

Ideally, a pixel on a screen is a combination of 3 colors (red, green, blue). Almost any opaque color could be made from this combination, but many advanced photo editing games and tools use transparent and translucent colors.

Nvidia G-Sync does not work on Windows 10

If you are a PC player, chances are you have heard of G-Sync. It is an exclusive adaptive synchronization technology developed by Nvidia, which is probably the best in the industry despite strong competition from AMD’s FreeSync. G-Sync is about preventing the screen from tearing in video games, but to use it, you need a computer monitor supported by G-Sync. Since G-Sync is hardware-based, players will have little reason to activate V-Sync software.

Over the years, Nvidia has been attacked because of the proprietary nature of G-Sync, as there are free alternatives. Anyway, this adaptive synchronization technology is still the best, but it poses some problems. read more

Your password has been changed on another device

Microsoft recommends that users set a separate password for their device, unless they log in with their Microsoft account. However, you leave it up to the user to decide whether or not to set the password. Later versions of Windows introduced Windows Hello, a device specific feature to connect to the system using facial recognition, fingerprint recognition, iris recognition or PIN code. To use this function, we must first configure a password.

Although PIN or biometric identification is a device that is intended to be a device specific function, it may be set to multiple devices if organizational policies permit. Here is an explanation of why a PIN code is better than a password and its device-specific features. The PIN is not stored on any server and therefore cannot be retrieved outside the device, although, as already mentioned, we could configure Windows Hello on several devices. read more
