Firefox releases Version 5; five remote code vulnerabilities fixed

Mozilla delivered on its promise to have the Version 5 release of its browser ready by midwinter's day, which takes place today in Australia – 22 June 2011.

The new version officially calls itself 5.0, but the Version 4 release is just three months old, and has had only one point update (to Version 4.0.1).

It looks as though Mozilla is simply copying Google's Chrome version numbering system in order to seem more "with it."

How To Resize Desktop Icon In Windows 7 or Vista

No Comments »

Users can easily resize Windows7/Vista desktop icons or change the size of icons on Windows7/Vista desktop

There are THREE methods to resize the desktop icons, depending on your preference and also the ’size’ that you want to change the icons to.


‘Mouse Wheel’ Method

The option to select from only three available sizes wasn’t satisfying enough, so I found another method. Make sure the desktop has the focus, just click anywhere on the desktop before starting this process. Press & hold Ctrl on the keyboard, Scroll with the mouse wheel up or down to get the desired size.





‘Color And Appearance’ Method

The above method was actually much better. You can have variety of sizes and one for sure will suit you. But what if you don’t have a mouse wheel?, the closest I could find is to do this: Right click on an empty spot on your desktop and choose Personalize, now choose the first item on the list Windows Color and Appearance,  and then click the last link Open classic appearance properties for more color options.


‘Registry’ Method (For Advance users)

If you like to tweak around the registry (I am not responsible for this), then that can be set under that key,

Open Registry by typing:- regedit in run (or Windows + R) and navigate to the key mentioned below.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

(Logging off is required for applying the changes.)
