Reiniciar Ipad/IPhone sin usar los botones físicos.
agosto 8, 2014

¿Se te ha roto el botón Home? ¿Tampoco te funciona el botón de apagado? Entonces te habrás dado cuenta que, incluso usando las útiles opciones de accesibilidad de iOS, existen algunos cosas que no puedes hacer sin recurrir a esos botones estropeados de tu iPad o iPhone.

Una de ellas es apagar y encender el equipo, lo cual puede ser un auténtico problema, ya que en muchas ocasiones hace falta apagarlo y encenderlo para solucionar muchos errores y bugs que aparecen. Si alguna vez te encuentras en esta situación te vendrá muy bien haber leído este artículo, en el que os contamos 2 trucos para reiniciar tu equipo iOS sin tocar ningún botón físico. Algo que te puede venir muy bien si no tienes facilidad para arreglarlo.

1. Activar el texto en negrita

Una función poco conocida de iOS y de la que pronto os hablaremos, es poner en negrita la tipografía del sistema. Una opción muy interesante que mejora la legibilidad para los que vemos peor, como yo. Y resulta que para activar y desactivar esta opción es necesario reiniciar el equipo, lo cual resulta una forma muy sencilla de conseguir ese reinicio sin usar los botones de tu iPad. Para realizar esto debes entrar en Ajustes > General > Accesibilidad y activar (o desactivar) la opción “Texto en negrita”

Al hacerlo te aparecerá un mensaje avisando de que es necesario reiniciar el iPad para hacerlo (precisamente lo que queremos). Pulsa “Continuar” y listo. El equipo se apagará y encenderá sin haber tocado ni un botón.

2. Restablecer los ajustes de red

Otra manera de conseguir lo mismo consiste en resetear los ajustes de red del iPad, para lo cual también es necesario reiniciar. Puedes conseguirlo entrando en Ajustes > General > Restablecer. Una vez dentro debes pulsar en la opción “Restablecer ajustes de red“. Si tienes un código de desbloqueo en tu iPad (deberías tenerlo) tendrás que introducirlo en este momento.

Al igual que antes te aparecerá un mensaje avisándote de que vas a restablecer a los ajustes de red originales de fábrica. Para completar este método tendrás que pulsar “Restablecer”. Esta forma tiene un inconveniente frente a la anterior: al hacerlo te cargas todas los ajustes de red que tengas, incluyendo todas las claves WiFi que hayas introducido. Por ello te recomendamos que uses el otro, incluso si después debes volver a reiniciar para recuperar la tipografía que más te guste.

How to shut your computer down automatically at the same time every day
septiembre 3, 2011

Want to make sure your Windows 7 computer shuts down at the same time every day (or night) without having to go through the shutdown process manually? All you have to do is create a scheduled task. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Start button and in the search box, type Scheduled tasks
  2. Click the item when it appears in the search results list under “Control Panel.”
  3. In the Task Scheduler console, in the Actions pane on the right, click “Create Basic Task …”.
  4. In the Wizard page that opens, give the task a name such as “Shutdown” and write a description (if you want) such as “Shuts down the computer at 1:00 a.m. every day.”
  5. Click Next.
  6. On the Task Trigger page, select “Daily” and click Next.
  7. On the Start Date and Time page, fill in the date and time you want to begin (such as 9/10/11 and 1:00 a.m.) and click Next.
  8. On the Action page, click “Start a Program” and click Next.
  9. On the Start a Program page, in the Program/script field, type:
  10. C:WindowsSystem32shutdown.exe
  11. Windows is installed on a drive other than C, substitute that drive letter.
  12. Click Next.
  13. Review the Summary page and click Finish.
  14. Now Windows will automatically shut down at 1:00 a.m. each day. You’ll get a pop-up notification telling you, before it does so, that “Windows will shut down in less than a minute.”

How to retrieve a forgotten security key for your wi-fi network
abril 23, 2011

20110423-084131.jpg

I recently got email from a reader who asked if there is any way to find out the security key for his home wi-fi network. He set up the network over a year ago and configured his computers to connect to it, and has been using it ever since. Now he has a new laptop that he wants to connect to the wireless network but he’s forgotten the key. Luckily, if you already have another Windows 7 computer that connects to the network, there is a way to retrieve the key. Here’s how:

1.- Go to the wi-fi enabled computer that’s connected to the network.
2.- In the notification area (system tray), click the Network icon.
3.- Right click the name of the wi-fi network and select Properties.
4.- Click the Security tab.
5.- Check the “Show Characters” checkbox.

This will display the key.

How can I bypass the administrator password?
abril 16, 2011

20110416-072933.jpg

QUESTION:
Help! My friend’s father is recently deceased and she needs to access his computer to pay his bills and find out about his financial information that he kept on the computer. No one else knows his password or an administrator password to change permissions so nobody can get into the operating system (Windows 7 Professional). Is there any way to do this? Thanks! – Evan K.

ANSWER:
You may be able to use Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (which, despite the name, also works with Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7) to remove the password from the admin account and log on. It’s a bootable program that you download as an .ISO file on another computer and burn to a CD. Then you can boot the father’s computer from the CD. You don’t have to know the username; it will list the accounts that exist on the system. It’s a free download and you can get it here:

How to make a program always start in administrator mode
abril 10, 2011

20110410-064842.jpg

There are some programs, especially tools and utilities, that need to run in administrator mode in order to do what they’re intended to do. You can navigate to the executable file, right click it and select to run as administrator each time you want to run it, but that’s a bit of a hassle. Instead, you can create a shortcut that you can use to open the program in admin mode every time. Here’s
How:

1.- First, make a shortcut on your desktop or in another location. Right click an empty space on the desktop and click New and then Shortcut.
2.- In the Create Shortcut wizard, browse to the location of the executable file and click Next.
3.- Give the shortcut a name and then click Finish.
4.- Now right click the shortcut and select Properties.
5.- Click the Advanced button.
6.- Check the box that says “Run as administrator” and click OK.

Now just double click the shortcut to start the program and it will automatically run in administrator mode.

How do I use Remote Desktop over the Internet with a dynamic IP address?
febrero 5, 2011

QUESTION:

Sometimes, I’d like to be able to access my desktop when I’m on the road, but I have no idea how to even get started using remote desktop. I’m on Comcast’s broadband, so I have a dynamic IP. Plus, my desktop is behind the Comcast router, a D-link router, and then a Linksys router. How in the world would I ever know how to get through to my computer?

If you could, please provide a link to a few articles that will help me get started using Remote Desktop. – Joe M.

ANSWER:

Remote Desktop is a great tool for accessing another computer and viewing and controlling its desktop over the network. On a local network, no problem. It’s as simple as enabling the RD service on the host computer and entering that host’s information in the Remote Desktop Connection client program on the client computer. But you’re right – when you’re going over the Internet, you need a public IP to connect to.

There are a few different solutions. One is to use something like LogMeIn Hamachi, which creates a VPN through which you can Remote Desktop to the Hamachi address. Here’s a link:

Another service you can use to assign a fully qualified domain name to your dynamic IP address and detect and automatically change the address when you’re assigned a new one is:

Hope this helps!

How to view the contents of the clipboard
febrero 5, 2011

The Windows clipboard is where the text, graphics, etc. that you cut or copy reside, waiting for you to paste them to another location. In Windows XP, it was easy to view the contents of the clipboard with clipbrd.exe, but Microsoft removed that feature in Vista and Windows 7, due to security concerns. However, you can copy the file from an XP computer and install it on Vista or Windows 7. Here’s how:

1.- On the XP computer, right click Start, click Explore and navigate to: C: \ Windows \ System32

2.- Find the file named clipbrd.exe and copy it to a USB thumb drive or a location on the network that’s accessible to the Vista/Windows 7 computer.

3.- Now on the Vista/Windows 7 computer, copy it to that computer’s System32 folder.

Note: If you can’t see the System32 folder, in Explorer first click Organize | Layout and check “Menu Bar” to display the menu bar, then click Tools | Folder Options, click the View tab, and under Advanced Settings, scroll down and check the option to “Show hidden files, folders and drives.” Then uncheck the option to “Hide protected operating system drives (recommended) and click “Yes” when asked if you’re sure you want to do
this.

If you don’t have access to an XP computer, you can instead install a third party clipboard viewer program, such as this one:

Can I get rid of the “Scan and Fix” pop-up?
diciembre 4, 2010

QUESTION:
Whenever I plug in my USB stick, Windows 7 wants to “scan and fix” it. I get a pop-up box saying “Do you want to scan and fix removable drive (J)?” I don’t, and I always click “Continue without scanning.” I’ve never had a problem with the drive but it always wants to do this. Can I get rid of it permanently? Thanks! – R.J.

ANSWER:
The dialog box appears when Windows detects problems with the drive’s file system or if you didn’t dismount the drive (using the “safely remove hardware” function) when you took it out of the computer or reader. You can indeed disable this – but if you do, you’ll also lose the Autoplay function, which pops up the box asking what you want to do when you insert a removable drive (for example, for graphics files, you’re asked if you want to import the pictures, copy them to your computer and view them, just open the folder, or use the drive to speed up your system with ReadyBoost. That means you’ll need to manually open Explorer and navigate to the drive to access its files.

If you don’t mind that (or if Autoplay annoys you too and you’d love to get rid of it), here’s how:

  1. Log on as administrator.
  2. Click Start and in the Search box, type msconfig
  3. Click the Services tab.
  4. Scroll down and find Shell Hardware Detection.
  5. Uncheck the box.
  6. Restart the computer.
