If you have an iPhone, and there’s no volume when making calls, but speakers seem to be playing music clearly, you’re not alone. This issue occurs when you plugin earphones that are not made by Apple themselves, and can be resolved by a brute force method that we will detail below.
So, what’s the actual no-call-volume issue? Music on your iPhone plays fine, and the microphone works fine too. But the problem occurs when you pick calls – you’ll be unable to hear the person at the other end completely. Sometimes, you can use a headphone or activate speaker mode to hear the other person talk, but if you hold the phone normally, you really can’t hear the person speak.
If you’re concerned, you have these options: you can delete your Instagram account right away, use a third party service to download your pictures before deleting them or migrate your photos to another service.
When that’s done, you can check out the alternatives mentioned at the end of the post so that you can still have fun filtering photos.
‘Show Desktop’ was a nice and useful feature in Windows 8. In essence, it was a button on the right extreme of the taskbar that allowed you to quickly get a peek at your desktop. Clicking on the button minimizes all the windows, allowing you to get quick access to icons or widgets on the desktop.
Soluto is a super-awesome troubleshooting application that we’re big fans of, and when it started out, it just helped chop down your computer’s boot time. Over time, Soluto has evolved into something bigger and better, allowing you to do a lot more than just speed up your computer.
Here are some useful tips that every Soluto user should know:
Windows 8 comes with a new tile based interface dubbed Start screen. The Start screen is loaded every time you login, and you can go back to the classic desktop by hitting Win+D or by clicking on the Desktop tile in the Start screen.
There is no inbuilt way to disable the start screen and launch the Classic Desktop directly, but if you’ve been using Soluto on Windows 7 and upgraded to Windows 8, there’s an easy way to do it.
It’s 2012, all right. Some of us still save web pages locally, and this tip might help if you’re a Google Chrome user. Opening up the saved web page from your local computer will load it with its local address in the address bar. You might be wondering what the actual HTTP URL of the web page is, and thankfully Chrome beautifully saves along with the source code.
If you use Google Transliterate to frequently type in multiple languages, read on. Google Transliterate IME, the desktop version of Google Transliterate, allows you to switch between different languages while typing on your computer.
Every time you want to switch between languages, you have to pause typing and then use your mouse to change the language from the option near the system tray. This could get pretty tiring for the keyboard fanatics among us.
Regular readers would know that we’re big fans of Rapportive, a Gmail add-on that displays a sidebar widget linking to social profiles of contacts when you hover over their email addresses. Rapportive is far more feature-rich and advanced when compared to its official counter part, the Gmail People Widget.
You could do a lot more with Rapportive than just viewing contact information. Here are five little-known ways to to use Rapportive:
If you’re having a hard time trying to format your USB pen drive, keep reading. Sometimes when you try to format your USB pen drive, you might get an error message saying ‘Windows was unable to complete the format’. Most of us assume that our pen drives are no longer usable and ditch them.
