How to stop Windows from adding folder to the Quick Access panel

As I was saying yesterday, I hate clutter. Related to my PC, I use my desktop to put files that I will use and then delete, like the images I use for posts, programs, and stuff like that. Windows knows this, and that’s why it decided to add a shortcut in the Quick Access panel.

Why?

Why are you doing this? Now I have duplicates, that’s even worse!

In any case, to disable it go to the explorer ribbon, View –> Options.

The bar must always be hidden.

In there, disable Show frequently used folder in quick access, and as a bonus you can also disable the frequently used files.

Disable everything.

That’s it, less clutter for everyone.

Disable Quick Access Shortcuts on Google Drive

A thing I really hate is having clutter anywhere, from pc, room, kitchen, web service, you get the idea. So, when I open GDrive and the first thing I see is the Quick Access area in the first place instead of the folders… I don’t like that. Luckily, there’s a way to remove it.

Pictures are private, fyi.

First let’s go into the options, upper-right, and click on Settings.

Always a detailed step-by-step.

In there you’ll see an option

Why is this enabled in the first place?

Reload the page and you’re done. Note that this will not affect your Google Drive App, these two are separate and you’ll have to do it over there as well.

Cinesift: A complete list of movies based on ratings

Several months ago I was wasting my time in reddit as always and a redditor posted a link to a website that he/her created called Cinesift.

Thanks to it I avided Batman v Superman.

Now, this is not like any other website about movies over there, no, the site ranks movies based on a score averaged between IMDB, Metascore, Rotten Tomatoes, Audience rating, and Letterboxd. Meaning that you add all of these scores to get the average, basic math.

The site is great, not only because it gives you a list of actually good movies to watch, but also becuse since these scores are a combination between critics and regular people, you can see both sides of the story.

But anyways, go check it out, it won’t disappoint.



The Ranch: A Netflix comedy you must watch

Trust me on this one, ok? Danny Masterson, Ashton Kutcher, Sam Elliot, Debra Winger… That’s an epic cast. There are even a few episodes with Wilmer Valderrama and Megyn Price.

The Ranch

Yes, it’s a comedy, but not a normal one. It reminds me the old ones, the good ones, not the crap we see today, but the ones like Married with Children, My wife and kids, and even That 70’s show.

I’m not into giving reviews based on the plot, the drama, the comedy, the drinking, sex, or curse words these guys can do/use/say and stuff, all I can say is that I love it. The series consist in 3 parts (so far) of 10 episodes each, and between episodes there is always a cliffhanger… shit, even between episodes there are cliffhangers.

So, go see it, The Ranch on Netflix.

WhatsApp For Desktop now available

This was something that wasn’t share anywhere in my circle of news or anything… maybe is not that relevant, I guess… but anyway, is relevant to my, so here it is.

WhatsApp released their Windows version and it works pretty well. It’s exactly the same as the web version, but now you don’t need a web browser or anything like that.

That's Rak as my profile picture.

It’s really fast to open, use, and everything, way faster than using the web version. And way to much lighter. Check this out.

On Chrome the session wasn't even open

Of course, this was done in Chrome, I have no idea how much RAM it would consume in other browsers, but the fact is that is half the memory, that’s a lot.

In the setting area, we found pretty basic stuff, of course, the one I would love to see is the possibility to add WhatsApp to the tray area (because I can hide icons there).

Simple as fuck.

So, go and download the app, you won’t regret it.
