Save Battery of your Laptop

There are times when you just want to listen to some music on your notebook/laptop and want the display (LCD) of your notebook to remain off while the lid is still open so that battery life can be optimized. While there are a small amount of laptop manufacturers who provide this simple option of turning off the laptop LCD when not in use, many do not.
I am sharing this small and useful application with all of you as a freeware license,which can be easily used for this purpose. You are free to distribute and use this application. I have tested this application on Windows Vista only. This might not work on earlier Versions.
This software is highly recommended for Laptop Users

Make Your Photo to be displayed when Pen drive is Inserted

There can be two methods to do this. The one is in which a software is required, the other is in which it is not required.

I am explaining the one in which no software is required.So, here is the details that how to do it…

Step 1

Open the photo you want to set as icon in your pen drive, in Microsoft Paint.

A square sized photo is recommended.

Then go to File → Save As… and save the file name as autorun.ico in Pen drive’s folder. i.e if your pen drive is G: drive then save autorun.ico in G:

Step 2

After saving the Image file as autorun.ico.

Make a file in notepad and write the following:-

[autorun]
icon=autorun.ico

Now save this notepad file in Pen Drive as autorun.inf. Now, eject the Pen Drive and re-insert then you should be able to see your photo in place of Pen Drive Icon.
If you have any problen contact me or leave comment here.Icon will appear something like this-

There are some other things which you can do with autorun.inf file. An autorun file as shown below will make autorun.exe to run when pen drive is inserted

[autorun]
open=autorun.exe
icon=autorun.ico

For some of our more advanced users here is a sample of autorun.inf-

[autorun]
;ShellExecute=index.html
icon=foobar.ico
action=Foo Bar [1]
shell=doubleclick.exe
shellconfigure=&Configure…
shellconfigurecommand=setup.exe
shellinstall=&Install…
shellinstallcommand=setup.exe
