Problem : Whatsapp images and videos not showing in galary in Android

Many of my friends complaining about my whatsapp images and videos are not showing on my gallery in Android phone. To share , delete or edit , it would be easy if images appear on the gallery. So I found the solution:

" Delete All .nomedia files"

How to delete all .nomedia files ?
  • Install "ES file explorer" app on your device
  • Go to internal memory 
  • search for .nomedia file 
  • delete all
Another way is
  • connect your mobile with your PC
  • open internal storage 
  • search .nomedia file
  • delete all
sometimes It still not work ! than in internal storage open "Android" folder. In that folder if you see .nomedia file , delete it. Go to Data folder and find .nomedia file and delete it. Restart your device if changes not reflected in Gallery.

New features coming in Android M.

Every body excited with the new name: what "M" will stand for in Android M. Any guess? Milky bite, Mango bite , you can comment your guesses  ... But the actual question is what are the new features coming in android M? Lets see one by one .

  • App permissions 

    App permissions
    you now have more control on App permissions. Users will be able to approve or deny security permissions, such as camera or location access, on a case-by-case basis. Currently, when you install an Android app, you agree to a range of permissions, such as what the app has access to. In Android M, you don't have to agree to things you don't want agree to. Instead, apps will ask permissions when you use a feature, rather than at installation.
  • Finger Print Support 

    Is it end of PIN , Password or Pattern ??  may be . Android M coming with finger print password. So if your phone has fingerprint scan than for authentication purpose you can use it instead of password or pin . 
  •  Andoid Pay

    Using an open API, Android Pay will be available through Android's own app, or integrated into other bank apps. Developers can use this feature for payment purpose for their app. It can be also possible that user can authenticate using FingerPrint and pay via Android pay.

  • Simplified Volume Control

    In Android M , you have simplified volume control. Which allows you to control volumes of ringtones , music ,alarm etc independently.
    Simplified volume Control


  • Improved Battery Life 

    In Android M , Google coming with new feature called Dose. It will take care of your battery life. When your mobile is not active , it will stop background processes running. It will improve your battery life twice.
    This comes with one sacrifice: apps don't stay as "fresh," meaning they won't be fully up-to-date with the latest information while your phone is dozing. That's a small price to pay for double the battery life, though.

  • Chrome Custom tabs 

    It is for developers, to improve web experience. Now google chrome can be embedded with App only. So no need to go to chrom for viewing web content in any App. There will be one chrome tab in App itself will display the content. You can also use save password, cookies etc like normal browser.

Net Neutrality - Save The Internet - In simple words

Now a days lots of articles and videos on net neutrality (or save the internet) are going on on social media. Lot of people asking me what is that ??  give me answer in simple non technical words.
And here it is :

Internet Provider Companies (IPC - like Airtel ,vodaphone ..) are comming with some wired Internet plan. Like this :

99 rs to activate internet (only some websites will be free to access )
+ 30 rs for whatsapp
+ 30 rs for fb
+60 rs for youtube

100 rs to boost your internet !!
(figures are imaginary)

So every body on social media are opposing this thing with the slogen "Save the Internet" . 
Net neutrality means "Every thing on the net should be similar , there should not be any extra charges or say if you have internet access than you can browse whatever you want ".

So to oppose that (or say support net neutrality ) you have to mail a TRAI (one organization which is taking public view on Net neutrality ) . By this origional website you can easily do that :

Please support net neutrality and mail to TRAI. Let us Save The Internet !!

How to remove shortcut virus from pendrive

The most commom virus menace for Windows users is the shortcut virus changing all your files and folders in pendrive to shortcuts. It's a familiar problem among most college students. We have all tried to use the ineffective shortcut virus remover, a third party software, to solve the problem. But it is very simple to deal with.

  1. Delete all the shortcuts from the pendrive. They can be identified by the arrow symbol in icons and having a size of less than 4kB usually.
  2. Now open command prompt.
  3. Go to the pendrive by typing <alphabet assigned to drive>:
  4. Now enter the magic line attrib -s -h /S /D
  5. Wait for some time... It's done! All your files and folders are back.

The secret behind this:
The virus only changes the folders' system attributes, makes it hidden and creates shortcuts. So by removing the shortcuts, and removing the hidden and system attributes from all files and folders, you have terminated the virus without trace!
