Windows 10: always show CPU Stats in the system tray

Windows 10: always show CPU Stats in the system tray

If you want to always keep the CPU usage stats somewhere on your computer so that you can monitor it, there’s a workaround. In this guide, we will show how you can keep the CPU Stats and other useful data in the system tray for easy access and monitoring.

Show CPU Stats in the Taskbar in Windows 10

Step 1: Open the Task Manager on your Windows 10 computer. You can do so by right-clicking the taskbar and selecting “Task Manager” from the menu. Alternatively, you can also press Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys on the keyboard.

Step 2: Click on the “Options” from the top-bar menu and from the drop-down list, click “Hide when minimized.”

Step 3: Now, minimize the Task Manager application and you will notice that the app is not shown on the Taskbar but has actually minimized to the system tray.

You will now see that the system tray icon shows a graph that indicates the CPU usage of your computer. If you hover the mouse pointer on that icon, the tooltip will reveal more details, including CPU, Memory, Disk, and Network usage.

To reopen the Task Manager, you can double-click on the CPU Usage icon in the system tray. To close the task manager and get rid of the CPU stats from the tray, just close the app by clicking the “X” icon in the top-right corner.

GSUITE: How to add Email Aliases

GSUITE: How to add Email Aliases

Give a user an additional “email alias” address (sales@)

As a G Suite admin, you can give a user an alternate address for receiving mail, in addition to a user’s primary address. Do this by adding an email alias to their account, in your Google Admin console.Example: If wants a sales address for corresponding with customers, give him the email alias Mail sent to either address then appears in his Gmail inbox, and he can send email using either address. 

Give users email aliases at no extra cost.

Important: Aliases are not private, and in some cases they’re visible to other users. For example, if a recipient searches Gmail for messages from, search results might also include messages from his alias,

See more options: Rename a user or change a user’s email addressNew update being released: These instructions describe an updated version of this feature, which is currently rolling out to customers. If your organization’s account doesn’t yet have this update, your interface will appear slightly different.

Add an email alias for a G Suite user

You can add up to 30 aliases for each user, at no extra cost.

Tip (If available): Try the quick link. At the top of your Admin console Home page, click Create an alternate email address, search for the user, click Proceed, and then go to step 5 below.

  1. In your Google Admin console (at…
  2. Go to Users.
  3. In the Users list, find the user. If you need help, see Find a user account.
  4. Click the user’s name to open their account page.
  5. Click User information and then Alternate email addresses (email aliases)
  6. Click Alternate email and enter an alternate username (the part of the address that appears before the @ sign).Note: You can’t create an alias currently assigned to someone else, either as a primary address or alias.
  7. (Optional) If multiple domains have been added in your Admin console, the field to the right of the @ sign is a menu listing available domains. Select a domain for the alias address.Note: Domains added as a domain alias don’t appear in this list. A domain alias applies for everyone in your account and can’t be customized for a single user.
  8. Click Save.
  9. (Optional) To return to the user’s account page, at the top right, click the Up arrow "" .

Within 24 hours (and often sooner), the user will begin to receive email sent to this address.

Creating an email alias lets the user receive email at that address. To send mail with the alias address in the From field, they need to set up a custom From address in Gmail. They must also do this to receive messages they send to their own email alias.

Share these steps with your users: Send mail from a different address or alias.

Remove a user’s email alias

  1. In your Google Admin console (at…

  3. In the Users list, find the user. If you need help, see Find a user account.
  4. Click the user’s name to open their account page.
  5. Click User information and then Alternative email addresses (email alias)
  6. At the right of the alias you want to remove, click Remove Cancel.Note: An alias with no Remove option was automatically added as a domain alias. This gives all your users an alias at this same domain. You can’t remove the alias for just one user. Instead, you need to remove the domain alias.
  7. Click Save.
  8. (Optional) To return to the user’s account page, at the top right, click the Up arrow "" .

It can take up to 24 hours for the alias to be removed.

Used only for email

People can use email aliases only to send and receive mail. They must keep using their primary address to sign in to their account, sync with a mobile device, or share Google Docs and Sites.

Create Time Lapse with Still Photos in Adobe Photoshop

Prepare a series of images in Adobe Photoshop to create a professional-quality time-lapse video.

Adobe Help Video:

With this tutorial you will use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premier Pro:

First step is to get the image files ready.

Take a look at all the files you wish to merge into your time lapse video. Depending on the amount of photos you will need to adjust the file names of your jpeg files.
We need them to be numbered in sequential order with no spaces. Hyphens or underscores will work fine. Make note of how many files you have. For Example, if you have 10,000 photos your sequence will need to include 5 zeros (00000) to make sure your photos are showing in order. So your file name will have to look like clouds-00001.jpeg
They need to be all in order with “no gaps” in sequence. For example: clouds-01234.jpeg, clouds-01235.jpeg etc.

Open Adobe Photoshop:

Click file OPEN

Find folder with all photos in sequential order.

Click photo on the first photo in the sequence and then click OPTIONS (bottom Left)


Frame Rate select 29.97 from drop down click OK
You will notice in your layers panel there is a video group with layers
Switch Workspace to “MOTION”
If the playback is choppy: we can adjust the playback resolution (don’t worry it wont downgrade the quality of the video) Click on the Gear Change Resolution to 25%

First thing you might want to adjust is the speed on which the photos are played back. 
“Right click” on the Layer’s Timeline and adjust speed to 200% or whatever you would like the pictures to play through.
You can make video image adjustments in the “Adjustments” panel to give you a clearer photo or adjust colors etc.
You can also adjust the full length of your video by dragging the toggles on top of your video/layer timeline to shorten or lengthen your video.  
Once you have adjusted your length and speed and color adjustments – you can export!

Click FILE > export > Render Video…
Select Folder: where you want it saved. 
Choose: Adobe Media Encoder
Format: H.264 High Quality
Document Frame Rate: 29.97fps
Range: It will save your adjustments to your work area or you can specify which frames you wish to export.

Click Render. It will save in the location you specified to save in.

If you are happy with the time lapse MP4 Export then you can take it into any program to add extra slides etc or upload to youtube as you wish.

Editing your time lapse in Adobe Premier Pro


File > Open your exported MP4 file from previous steps. In the location that is was saved in.

Once your video is open in Premier Pro: Right Click on the video in the bottom left.
Select “New Sequence from Clip”
Edit what you did in photoshop by doing a simple “Pan and Zoom”:
Move your timeline marker to the end of your video
Select the “Keyframes” by clicking on the “Position” icon and “Scale” icon on the left “Video Effects” Panel
Go to the Beginning of your clip and Focus on your specific object by adjusting the Scale and Position to highlight your object on screen.

You can preview your full clip until you are completely satisfied with the finished product.

Export from Premier Pro by selecting File > Export > Media…

When your finished video is ready to start the export, open File, go to Export, and then to Media. A pop up with several settings will appear, and you can select one to export the video.

Choose the Video to Export:

When exporting, you may opt to have the whole video or a part of it exported. The settings of export video premiere pro offer you the freedom to select the entire clip or a part of it before rendering. If it’s a part of the clip you want to export, drag the handles at the preview from the beginning to the end of the video you want. The handles on the right side take you to the end while the left ones take you at the start of your clip. There is a Source settings menu where you can check your selected video portion. It offers the option to crop the video’s resolution before sharing it on a platform.

Choosing the format:

You have several options for selecting a video format of your choice. It may be confusing if you are not well versed in them. The ideal format to use when exporting adobe premiere is the H.264. The format’s compatibility with various devices makes it the right one for you. It makes your work easy as it can compress your video and, at the same time, retain its quality

Choose a Preset:

To start, select Preset, and from the dropdown menu, select quality and resolution settings. From the options that appear, you can use any you desire for exporting the video. In the export video premiere window, you will find several presets that you can use for your video playback or the destination site.

To be on the safe side, choose presets that will match with the site you wish to upload your video to. Another point to note is that when setting your video quality, do not place it too high than its resolution. It may spoil your video footage as the resolution will be higher.

Site isn’t showing up in Search Results

Reasons your site doesn’t rank — and how to fix poor rankings
A number of factors can influence your site’s Google rankings (or lack thereof).

Here are six reasons you might be wondering “why isn’t my website showing up on Google” and what you can do to fix it.

1. Your website isn’t indexed
Sites that aren’t indexed by Google won’t show up in search results — and there are several reasons your site isn’t being crawled and indexed by Google bots.

Your site is new

If your website is new, keep in mind that it can take several weeks for Google to index your site and reflect the changes in search results.

This is especially true for new websites since they don’t typically have many inbound links. Google considers both the number and quality of inbound links to sites when ranking them. It takes time to build up your domain authority, so don’t expect to see immediate rankings for a new website.

Your site has “no index” tags

If you have an older site that isn’t indexed, check your use of “no index” tags before searching “my website isn’t showing up on Google.”

Adding “no index” code to your site prevents search bots from crawling and indexing specific pages.

While there are some instances where you’d want to use “no index” tags, you’ll want to consult an SEO agency to make sure it’s done right and doesn’t prevent pages you want to rank from appearing in search results.

In addition, a robots.txt file can prevent Google crawlers from visiting entire portions of your site, so you’ll want to make sure you didn’t accidentally disallow pages you want to rank.

Websites that operate on WordPress have built-in features that instruct search engines not to index the sites. Owners need to disable the setting manually by visiting Settings >> Reading and unchecking the box next to Search Engine Visibility.

Wondering “how to index my site on Google”? Take a look at these tips

How to fix a non-indexed site

If your website isn’t indexed on Google, start by creating an account on Google Search Console.

This allows you to direct Google to your sitemap.xml and request it to crawl and index your URLs. It’s important to remember, though, that Google doesn’t guarantee site indexing, and if your site is new, it may still take time to rank in search engine results pages (SERPs). You can also update your site’s “no index” tags in your code and robots.txt to ensure Google bots can find, crawl, and index your pages.

2. Your website has a penalty
Penalties can also prevent your site from ranking in Google search results.

If your site doesn’t meet Google’s quality guidelines, it may temporarily or permanently remove your site from search results.

Google penalties include:

Deindexed: Google completely removes your domain from search results.
Penalized: Your domain still exists, but you can’t find your pages via direct search. This penalty may result from a Google algorithm update, or Google can manually apply it.
Sandboxed: Your Google traffic drops suddenly, but your domain wasn’t Deindexed or Penalized.

How to fix a Google penalty

Check Google Search Console for penalty alerts. If your site gets penalized, you’ll need to take steps to modify your website to meet Google’s guidelines. Then, you can submit your site for reconsideration to get back on Google.

3. Your website isn’t optimized for search
If you’re searching “my website doesn’t show up on Google,” you might need to beef up your SEO.

Search engines like Google consider hundreds of factors when rankings sites — and SEO helps you ensure your website’s optimized to rank at the top of SERPs.

SEO spans several strategies designed to boost your rankings and help you earn more conversions (and revenue) online. You can have the most beautifully designed site, but without SEO, it won’t rank in SERPs. Not to mention, nobody will be able to find and contact your business.

How to fix a website that isn’t optimized for search

Start by conducting a comprehensive SEO audit of your site. An SEO audit allows you to identify areas for improvement and make the necessary fixes to achieve top rankings.

When optimizing your site for search, here are a few things you’ll want to consider:

Clean up your site’s code and technical SEO
Ensure your site loads quickly
Streamline your website design and navigation to provide a positive user experience
Include target keywords in your site copy, headings, and page titles
Create in-depth, quality content that answers searchers’ questions
Depending on your time and resources, you may decide to spring for a custom SEO package.

4. Your website’s content sucks
Speaking of content, if your site copy sucks, there’s a good chance your site won’t show up in Google search results.

Search engines like Google want to rank sites that provide quality content that matches a searcher’s intent and satisfies their queries.

When creating content, aim to make it comprehensive enough that it fully answers searchers’ questions, so they don’t have to hit the back button to check out other results.

While you don’t need to create full-length guides to rank in SERPs, it’s essential to provide searchers with valuable content that keeps them engaged on your site — and encourages them to contact you to take the next step.

How to fix content that sucks

If your content leaves something to be desired, consider partnering with a full-service content marketing agency like WebFX to create custom site content. Our team understands how to create content that ranks in search results, and we’ll help you beef up existing pages to improve your position in the SERPs.

It’s also important to remember that search engines and users like fresh content, so keep yours updated regularly to achieve the best results.

5. Your keywords are too competitive
If you’re reading this post and thinking, “My content’s great and my website still isn’t showing up on Google,” then it’s time to revisit your keyword targeting.

Trying to rank for highly-competitive results, especially when competing with bigger brands, can sometimes leave your business in the dust. Instead, consider targeting long-tail, more specific phrases that contain three or more keywords.

While long-tail keywords have lower monthly search volumes, they are also less competitive, giving you a better chance of ranking at the top of search results. In addition, long-tail keywords typically have a more specific search intent.

For example, if someone searches a generic keyword like, “tent,” it’s hard to determine exactly what they want to find.

Do they want to know how to set up a tent? Are they researching the best tent for their next camping trip? Do they want to buy a specific type of tent?

On the other hand, if someone searches the long-tail phrase, “buy two-person backpacking tent,” you know that they’re ready to purchase.

Companies that sell outdoor gear will have an easier time ranking for the long-tail phrase “buy two-person backpacking tent,” and they can create content that matches that specific intent.

How to fix an overly ambitious keyword strategy

Successful SEO campaigns always start with keyword research.

Using tools like Keyword Tool, Ubersuggest, and Google’s Keyword Planner, try to identify long-tail keywords with less competition that offer the most value to your business. Targeting less competitive phrases will allow you to show up in Google results and reach more customers online.

6. Your site doesn’t provide a good user experience (UX)
Finally, if your website delivers a poor user experience (UX), you can kiss top rankings goodbye.

Search engines want to rank valuable content and websites that provide visitors with a great experience. If users don’t have a positive experience on your website, they’ll waste no time hitting the back button — a signal to Google that your site shouldn’t rank.

Improving UX on your site can reduce bounce rates, engage visitors, and help them learn more about your business, all while helping you rank higher in search results.

LastPass has been a GODSEND for my personal life and business needs. In the age of technology there is a password and login for EVERYTHING.

What if you didnt have to think of your own password? What if you could store all your password in a secure platform that you can access from every device similar to apple’s “keychain”

Well look no further! Last Pass is your answer to recording your passwords, secure notes and even sharing family passwords so no one is locked out.

You can add it to your web browser as an extension or download the Android or iOS app from the App Store. I have mine setup to my apple Face ID so I don’t even need to type in the master password any more when browsing. Got to love technology!

Toy with Technology and Self-control

There are all these articles circulating about children being addicted to technology. Children not developing proper skills due to technology. Kids addicted to devices. What is the root cause? Us… Humans. We have become a society so dependent on a small time sucking devices in our pockets. We are told we need to be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are showing it to our kids, our loved ones. That that demand is real… and true.

We demand instant gratification. We don’t have an answer, but Google does… as we pull out our phones at the dinner table or next social gathering. We are slaves. So how can we say we are not addicted ourselves?

The powerful tool of knowledge only sits a few clicks away. We abuse it, or use as a crutch to make us feel comfortable, feel smart, important, or can even make you feel more alone. Our technology helps us share stories, save lives, create success, connect.

But all that we need to learn to disconnect from technology to LIVE, to GROW. The key is self-control, self-management.

I dare you to look at your own time. How do you spend your morning? What are the first 10 minutes as you open your eyes?

I know my typical morning… My phone is used as my alarm clock however it has been at least 1 year since I have heard the “sweet chimes” of that alarm. I am always up before it goes off. Weekday or weekend I am awake when the sun streams through my bedroom window. When my body decides to get up… it usually the crack of dawn when the house is quiet. My family still nestled in their beds.

I used to sit on my phone in that silence. Doing nothing. Consumed in other peoples’ worlds in far-off lands. That’s how I would spend the first hours of my day not 10 minutes… Hours… now I have introduced better habits to my morning routine to writing, sketching, reading.

I started realizing how consumed I am on my phone/computer/tablet. I have chosen to make an effort over the last year to leave the phone and be present in the moment. It’s nice to have snaps, photos, boomerangs, videos of a moment but if you are too consumed with taking that perfect shot. Are you really enjoying the moment?


This is my opinion. I believe in everything in moderation. Too much of one thing is bad. Technology, Food: sugar, fake sugar, bread, milk, water?…… I could go on and on about all the “bad” stuff. Is it really bad? or are we just not eating the right things at the right time in the right amounts?

We have to teach ourselves as well as our future generations about self-control, self-moderation. We have to look out for ourselves and the ones we love. The media is going to tell you everything: BE CONNECTED. SHARE NOW. COME IN TODAY. TAG ME. CHECK IN TO WIN. You have to make the choice. Set healthy limits for yourself and your children.

I spent the weekend outdoors, playing in the dirt, basking in the sunshine with my son, visiting and celebrating achievements with family. We went to a local market (Travelling Gypsies Trade Show) on Saturday filled with fellow entrepreneurs with handmade items all made locally. Then we picked up a lunch from Grains Bakery and took it home to eat a picnic in the backyard with the dogs.

After a long winter, I choose to limit my use of technology as a crutch. Less technology to occupy my free time, my son’s time to “pass the day.” There is a time and place for the crutch of technology. But I challenge you to look at your own usage. Put the phone down and enjoy human interaction, enjoy life, savor the moment.

Take photos as you want! Live how you what! Live in the moment, create the positive memory to attach to those records of time. As we all know memories tend to fade over the years but great ones recalled with a photo/video are special.

You have the choice to read a story to your kids or let an app do it for you. You have the choice to teach someone something new through talking and using sheer intellectual brain power. You have the choice to live and travel to see the world. Or the choice to live behind a screen and watch someone else travel for you.

Behind a screen, you can’t smell, taste or sense the world. Choose how much time you and your loved ones have sucked away from you. Technology is a tool. Play with it. Use it as a toy. Don’t make yourself the tool to technology. You have a choice.
