Historically, battery life has not been a strong suit for machines running Windows. Poor decisions by hardware manufacturers combined with the resource-hogging behavior of Windows are to blame. However, Microsoft is trying to resolve this issue, once again, with the release of Windows 10.

If you had the original Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 and a Type or Touch cover, you know how big a pain in the ass it was to change the scrolling direction of the trackpad.

Remote Desktop gives you access to your Windows 8 PC or device from wherever you are to run your applications and access your files remotely.

Now that the Surface Pro is out, you can game your heart out and get down with some serious Minecrafting. You're not just limited to downloading apps in the Windows Store anymore, like with the Surface RT. You can install a lot of Windows-compatible programs on the Surface Pro, but still, with this being a mobile device, it'd be nice to have some more mobile-feeling apps. And thanks to BlueStacks, you can. BlueStacks has helped people without Androids and iPhones get popular apps on their dev...

I think most people can agree that advertisements are just annoying. There is only one day out of the entire year when commercials and advertisements are actually welcomed, and that's the Super Bowl. But, since it can't be the Super Bowl every day (if only), those ads that float around on your Microsoft Surface's screen are just obnoxious. Luckily, there is a way to get rid of them, on Facebook at least. Facebook is one of the most visited sites in the world, so having the ability to hide ads...

I know what you're thinking—taking a screenshot is super simple. While that is partly true, taking of a screenshot of the Start Screen in Windows 8 is little bit tricky, unless you're on your Surface.

Microsoft's first venture into the tablet market, the Surface RT, combines many of the capabilities of a normal Windows 8 laptop into a super compact tablet, whose super-thin touch cover and kickstand can transform it into a functional mini-laptop, small and light enough to go anywhere you want. But like most tablets, the Surface comes with a rather limited amount of storage space. The tablet comes in either 32 GB or 64 GB, but we all know that's not the actual amount of storage space you can...

A Peltier module allows you to turn heat into electricity. Because you can place it in areas that are normally warm anyway, the electricity created is "free" in a sense, though it does work best when one side of the module is cold and the other is hot. In other words, all you'll need for this project is the Peltier module and a cooler surface such as soil or water, and a warm area such as a well lit window or warm pan.

In this how to video, you will learn how to find the volume of a sphere and surface area. Let's say you need to find the volume of a sphere with a surface area of 200 cm cubed. You will need to know the formulas for surface area and volume of a sphere. The formula for surface area is 4 pi r squared. The formula for volume is 4/3 pi r cubed. Plug in the surface area of 200 cm cubed and plug it into the formula. You should get an answer of about 3.99 cm. Now you just have to solve for the radiu...

Ron Hazelton describes how to replace a screen in a door or window. The screen is held in the frame by a vinyl cord that can be removed with a knife. Lift the old screen out of the frame. With the new screen on a flat surface, using the frame as a template, cut the new screen a half-inch larger than the frame all around. Cut 45-degree notches in the screen at each corner. Place the screen evenly on the frame. Press the cord back into the groove on the sides first, then the top and bottom. Fin...

This video tells us the method to find the surface area of an aluminium can or cylinder. The surface area includes the outside area of the curved portion and the aluminium top and bottom. The formula to find area is the multiple of 2, pi, r, r+h or (2)(pi)(r)(r+h). The radius of the cylinder is the radius of the circular top or bottom. In the example shown in the video, the radius is 4 inches and the height is 12 inches. Substituting the values in the formula, we get the surface area as (2)(3...

A pyramid is a three dimensional figure with the base in the form of a triangle and three slant sides to it. To find the surface area of a pyramid you have to find the area of the different pieces that make it up. The pyramid base can be triangle or even other geometric figure like pentagon. So first draw the base of the pyramid separately and compute its area first. Now compute the area of each sides separately. The area of each side can be same if the pyramid is a regular pyramid. Some time...

Hence the bottom part of the cone which is circular can be calculated as Pi*r*r, where r is the radius of the base circle. Now for the sides surface of the cone, it looks like a sector and he derives its area thorough some deduction. Now he adds both the base surface area of the cone, and the lateral surface of the cone which finally gives the...

In this video tutorial the author shows how to find the surface area of a cylinder. He shows a four step approach to solve this problem. First he gives us a formula to find the surface area of a cylinder, where Surface area A = 2 * Pi * R * R + 2 * Pi * R * H, where R is the radius of the base of the cylinder and H is the height of the cylinder. Now he identifies those values and substitutes them in the formula giving the surface area of the cylinder. This video shows how to compute the surfa...

In this video, we learn how to digitally print on uncommon surfaces. First, you will want to apply the gloss evenly with a sponge brush. Use clear so that when it's printed you will almost be able to see through it. This will come out really crystal clear and look amazing. Take the top sheet off and set it aside to dry. Grab the underneath part and then cover this with the gloss as well. Doing this step beforehand will help the pre-coat look even better for when you are printing. Once you are...
