How to select multiple files without using keyboard in Windows Seven and Vista?

Of course you can select several files from a directory by keeping the ‘Ctrl’ key pressed and click with the mouse. But what do you do when one hand is free? This is possible if we can put a small checkbox against each files and folders.

Windows Seven and Vista have this feature. To enable this feature open Windows Explorer with the short-cut key ‘Win + E’.

Click on ‘Organize’ and select ‘Folder and Search Option’. Now from this ‘Folder and Search option’ dialog, go to ‘View’ tab.

Under ‘Advanced settings’ check the option ‘Use Checkboxes to Select Elements’ and click OK to confirm the settings.

Now when you move the mouse over a file or folder, a checkbox appears in the top left corner, check this box to select files or folders

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
