Pick your favorite color for your desktop with these tools

Who’d want to go with kit colors? If you are a creative person, we know that you would like to have new colors on your plate, or desktop in this case. Why just go for the default colors that come with the operating system when you have the option to go for the color that you like. There are some tools that you can use to pick a color for your desktop and here they are

Color cop

Color cop is a small, simple, and great tool that everyone must use. It’s a simple app that lets you check color samples from anywhere on the screen. This tool also has a magnifier which lets you zoom to the pixel that has the color that you’re looking for, if you’re trying to pick a color from the screen. It also has a convertor that translates the color into color codes, in case you’re trying to use this color on a website. Plus, the best thing about this app is that history. There are seven tabs for color history that allows you to see what you’ve selected or picked. This tool has a simple interface and is really simple to use. Anyone would understand how to use this application and you must use it too!

Webmaster’s Toolkit

Now, for people who can handle intermediate level tools and applications that require a bit of understanding, this is a great tool. Webmaster’s Toolkit is one of the cleanest apps in this segment and probably the best. And that’s probably why you have to pay for this tool – it’s not free! Though you can go for the trial version of this tool, which can be used for 30 days, after which you’d need to buy the application. Features like ‘Eyedropper’ and ‘Pixel ruler’ allow you to navigate to the exact pixel on the screen when you’re picking colors. Use this before you actually buy the license.

Instant color picker

This application is available for multiple operating systems and all versions of Windows operating system. It’s a simple standalone application and this app is very different from the other apps in this list. The interface is really simple and refreshing and you’d only see a color bar when you install and open this application for the first time. Again, the features that you’d find on this application are similar to the ones that we’ve already seen. Eyedropper and Magnifier are some of the features that you’d find in this application and other similar options too. The interface is really simple and minimal so people who do not like cluttered desktop screens might like this application.

When these machines are so important and execute so much things for you, what if there is a problem in your computer. It can be really frustrating to deal with computer problems. As you are not sure, where to go and to whom consult for the problem you are facing. The first thing you need to do is that you should have access and information about the service centers near you. Let us have a look at the problems we generally face in our computers.

The first problem is of genuine software. It is always advisable for you to go only for a trusted software provider and you are really not going to face any kind of problem in future. It is like a drive on a smooth road without any glitches. When all the software installed are genuine it is sure that they are not going to create a problem as they provide safety to your hardware and ultimately they are going to work for a long time. Always use genuine software to overcome and resolve the problems of system crashing, hanging of applications etc.

How to Check Hard Disk Space

A hard drive is one of the most important components of any computer system. You might be amazed to read that just 10 years back, the most common hard drive size available was of 10 GB and this was used to accommodate the operating system, all the software and applications, and the user data and files. Today the operating system itself requires around 13 GB of hard drive space. Now you can imagine how precious the hard drive space is and how much we need it in today’s computing world. All the applications, operating system, files, games, audio and video available nowadays are resource hungry and require free hard drive space. If you do not have enough free hard drive space available on your computer, your operating system will not work efficiently.

It might happen that you purchase a 100 GB hard drive but you don’t get the entire 100 GB to work upon. Let me explain that the entire hard drive space is never available for use because some of it is used by the hard drive itself for its book keeping called as the File System. If you want to know the total size of your hard drive, follow the simple steps given below.

Step 1: Open ‘My Computer’ window and change the view to detail.

If you have single partition on your hard drive then size of the partition will be the approximate size of your hard drive. If you have more than one partition then proceeds to step two.

Step 2:  Sum the size of all the partitions which you see in this window and this should give you the approximate size of your hard drive.

If you are not sure whether entire hard drive space was utilised while creating the partitions, then follow the next steps.

Step 3: Open the ‘Run’ box and then type the command ‘DISKMGMT.MSC’ and press ‘Enter’.

This window will show you all the partitions along with any un-partitioned space on your hard drive. You can total the sizes of this partitioned and un-partitioned space to get the approximate capacity of your hard drive.
