Presenting Microsoft Powerpoint Presentation with your Android based mobile

In the past years I presented a lot of presentations with the presenttools such as Logitech Presenters. They work fine but sometimes I forgot to take with me. 

So I was searching the internet for solutions. In the past I tried this solution but the integration wasn’t in that state that you can trust on it but I tried it yesterday. And I was a little bit confused over the smooth integration. Believe it or not. It’s a good solution. And I am going to use this solution tomorrow. 

Over 25 hours I’m back and let you know if it’s a solution to user with a real scenario.

Harddisk loopt vol (Windows 10)

Recent had ik mijn Surface opgeschoond. Afgelopen week bleek dat mijn OS-disk nog maar 5Gb over had. Na diverse zoekacties (Treesize) kwam ik er achter dat dit artikel ook op mijn situatie van toepassing was.
Hier direct het artikel:
The SFC.exe program writes the details of each verification operation and of each repair operation to the CBS.log file. The CBS.persist.log is generated when the CBS gets to be around 50 meg in size. CBS.log is copied to cbs.persist.log and a new cbs.log file is started.

It would be useful only for troubleshooting issues. If you are sure your system is running fine, you can delete this file. SFC.exe will create a new one, next time it is run.

I have used following method to delete:

1. Stop TrustedInstaller.exe (Windows Module Installer) in Taskmanager Services tab. Additionally if you cannot, open the Taskmanager Processes tab and End Task the same process.
2. Delete or move all the .log files in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS directory, you can delete the .persist and .cab files as well.
3. Start Windows Module Installer service (TrustedInstaller.exe) again.Facebooktwitterlinkedininstagramby feather

  • Click on the searched search engine. In this case it’s
  • Click on “Set as default”.

We discussed about google as search engine. Do you prefer another search engine. It works in the same way.Facebooktwitterlinkedininstagramby feather
