We rely on security features like 2- factor authentication to safeguard our online data, but we tend to ignore the password policy of our personal computers (I doubt many know what it is exactly). Your Windows logon password is as important if not more, and hence not paying attention to it won’t be a wise thing to do. It’s not that Windows […]

When an external speaker is not around, most of us use players like VLC and GOM on our laptops just to use their ability of boosting the sound of the video/audio playing on Windows.
