It's really amazing (and somewhat discouraging) how much time and effort are wasted sometimes only because there's a simple trick that you just didn't know. Fortunately, I know quite a few tricks and when I learn new ones that I think are useful, I'll share them here.
I'm a big fan of good tools. The problem is it can be hard to find good ones, ones that don't cost a lot, and ones that don't have hidden code or viruses in them. Well, I've done as much as I can to find the best free tools that are safe to use and you can check them out here! Maybe you'll find one that saves you as much time and trouble as they saved me.
There aren't tools for every problem because some fixes just take knowing where to go and what setting to change. For these kinds of issues, check out my hacks section. Just like tools, just knowing the trick to making things work they way they should is very gratifying!
