Full Screen Mode for Turbo c on Vista

This is a big question for those who are still using Turbo C++ Version 3.0 in Windows Vista. As everyone knows that full screen is not supported with the version 3.0 in Vista; it is ridiculous to work in the small screen where I think no one can ever imagine writing a program there! This solution will help all the C, C++ learners using TC++ 3.0 in Vista.

This is a simple technique. Just follow the simple 4 steps given below and get a big screen in few seconds. There is no need of any additional softwares or drivers.

Step 1: Open TC++ (normally C:\TC\BIN\TC.EXE). In the startup it will show a dialogue box that it doesn’t support full screen mode as seen in the picture below. Just select ignore option. Then it will open the small screen mode.

Note: Please Click on the images to enlarge

Step 2: Go to the top left of the window and click. It will show a menu as shown in the figure. Then select properties from the menu.

Step 3: Now it will show the properties window, in which you select the Font tab. There you can see two font options as Raster and Lucida Console. The default will be Raster. You select Lucida Console and select the size from the size list as 28.

Step 4: After selecting the fonts, now you have to select the layout tab where you can see screen buffer size, window size, and window position options. First unselect the “Let system position window” option from window position options. Now make the following changes:

  • <!–[if !supportLists]–> <!–[endif]–>Screen Buffer Size: Width: 82 Height: 28
  • <!–[if !supportLists]–> <!–[endif]–>Window Size: Width: 80 Height: 26
  • <!–[if !supportLists]–> <!–[endif]–>Window Position: Left: -4 Top: -4

After making the changes select OK.

Now you will see a larger window and very crisp font size in which you can work perfectly fine. This technique actually doesn’t provide full screen in Vista but you will find it much better.

NB: The given sizes will work fine for 1280 by 800 screens, but there is no compulsion that you have to use them as specified. You can always use your own options according to your need.

Windows Xp Auto Logon

You might want to enforce Windows XP auto logon when you are the only person that uses your Windows XP computer.If you use this little trick, you won’t have to enter your username / password combination each time you power-on your computer. It’s a huge time-saver.

Most people power-on their computer and then start doing something else, allowing their computer the time to start up. The net effect is that the computer starts up to the moment when you need to enter your logon credentials and then …

… waits.

So you’re busy with whatever it is that you are doing allowing your computer to start up. After some time you guess that your computer has gone through it’s start up phase and is ready for you. You go over there, enter your credentials and then …

you wait.

That’s because the computer needs some more time to load your user environment.

Ugh, not very efficient.

Try this :

  • Click the Start button and select “Run”
  • In the “open” box, type regedit and click ok
  • Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon key
  • Check the presence of the string value “DefaultPassword” (it shouldn’t be there)
  • Click “edit” in the registry editor menu and select “New”, then select “string value”
  • In the box that says “New Value #1”, type “DefaultPassword” (without the quotes, case sensitive)
  • Double-click this new “DefaultPassword” entry and enter the password for the user account that you want to log on automatically
  • Click ok
  • Check the existence of the string “DefaultUserName” – it should be there and contain the user account for which you want the windows xp auto logon
  • Check the existence of the “DefaultDomainName” string
  • Double-click the “AutoAdminLogon” and change its value to 1, then click ok
  • Close the registry editor

You have now set up your computer to use the Windows XP auto logon. This has a few implications :

  • It means that your computer will automatically log on with the account that is specified in the registry. If you ever want to log on with another user account, hold down the shift key as you log off. You can also set the value of “AutoAdminLogon” back to 0 in the registry of course
  • Your password is stored in plain text in the registry. If your computer is part of a network, it can be seen by someone with the authority to view a remote registry. If you’re worried about security, it might be better not to implement this tip.

Ubuntu Linux Vs Microsoft Vista

The prevailing wisdom about Linux on the desktop runs something like this: “I’ll believe Linux is ready for the desktop as soon as you can give me a Linux distribution that even my grandmother can run.”
ubantu

For some time, the folks at Ubuntu have been trying their best to make Granny — and most everyone else — happy. They’ve attempted to build a Linux distribution that’s easy to install, use, configure, and maintain — one that’s at least as easy as Windows, and whenever possible, even easier. As a result, Ubuntu is one of the Linux distributions that has been most directly touted as an alternative to Windows.

In this feature, I’m going to compare the newly-released Ubuntu 7.10 (codenamed “Gutsy gibbon”) with Microsoft Windows Vista in a number of categories. To keep the playing field as level as possible, I’m looking wherever I can at applications — not just in the sense of “programs,” but in the sense of what the average user is going to do with the OS in a workday. Sometimes the differences between the two OSes are profound, but sometimes the playing field levels itself — OpenOffice.org, for instance, is installed by default in Ubuntu, but adding it to Vista isn’t terribly difficult.

Windows Vista

I tried to stick whenever possible with preinstalled software, although this rule sometimes had to be bent a little — for instance, to see what backup solutions were available for Ubuntu through its own software catalog.

Also, while I was tempted to compare Vista’s Aero interface to the Beryl window manager (which has a similar palette of visual effects), I decided that pretty graphics, while nice, had more to do with personal preference than efficiency. In addition, Beryl isn’t installed by default in Ubuntu, and Aero isn’t available on all PCs.
