How To Set Up & Troubleshoot The Mail App In Windows 8

Windows 8 features a pretty slick Mail app. If you thought it only supported Microsoft accounts, such as Hotmail, Windows Live, or Outlook, you were wrong. The Windows 8 Mail app lets you add any email account that supports IMAP. As it always is in life, the theory is beautiful, but in practice we run into all sorts of petty issues. That was me when I tried to set up the Windows 8 Mail app. This article will help you set up the Mail app and troubleshoot common pitfalls in case you get stuck.

Convert Any Video Or Audio File To Any Format & Burn Discs With Format Factory

Not all video conversion software is created equal. Recently, I received a DVD copy of a TV show I appeared on. I was very antsy to use the content from that DVD as advertising for my online writing and research. Once I started trying to extract the clips and convert the video, however, I found that most of the video conversion tools ended up failing either with ripping the DVD or the video conversion. I was stunned. I nearly gave up until I recently stumbled across Format Factory.

How To Restore, Refresh, or Reset Your Windows 8 Installation

In addition to the standard System Restore feature, Windows 8 has features for “refreshing” and “resetting” your PC. Think of these as ways of quickly re-installing Windows — either keeping your personal files or deleting them from your hard drive. In addition to functioning as troubleshooting features, Refresh and Reset are similar to the “restore to factory defaults” option found on many simpler devices. We’ll explain how to use these features, but we’ll also explain what they do and when you’d want to use them.

Cleaners Compared: CCleaner vs. Slimcleaner vs. IObit Advanced SystemCare

Although Windows is a very capable operating system, it is infamous for its deteriorating performance over time. With the help of some clever system cleaners, however, you can drastically increase the life expectancy of your system before you have to resort to a re-installation. I compared three programs based on their interface, features, scan times, and results. An ideal cleaner should have a simple, easy to use interface with effective features, quick scan times and accurate and helpful results.
