Most of the people spent most of their time on computers or laptops. Some use computers for their work and some of them use computers for entertainment purposes. They spent most of their time on computers so they thought they knew everything about the computer but there are more shortcuts on computers which make your usage of computers better. I have mentioned some of the tips and tricks of computers from which I am sure that your experience of using computers will increase and you can also show these tips and tricks to your friends or relatives and surprise them and make computer masters in their sight.
Change your password without entering the old password
If I tell you to change the password of your computer or laptop, then you can simply go to the control panel and then you go to the user account and enter your old password, and then you enter the new password. But you can change your computer or laptop password without going into the control panel and entering the old password. If you also have to change your password without entering the old password then you have to click on the start button and then type “Command Prompt” after this right-click on the command prompt and click on “Run as administrator”. After the command prompt opens, simply type “net user” without quotes and hit the enter button, after you type net user, you will see all the accounts or users that have been made on your computer, after this you have to type “net user (your account username) type password what you have to keep” and then press the enter key. After you type this, you will see “The command completed successfully” this means the password of your computer has been changed now. Remember that you have to write exactly what I have written and spaces are also necessary after every word except your account username if you username have spaces.
If you have the important files or folders and you want that no one can access these important files or folders on their computer or laptop because these are the important files for you. By this trick, if someone copied your important files and put your important files in their pen drive then your files which you encrypt will not be accessed or opened in their computer. If you also have to use this trick and encrypt files that nobody can access those files in others computers, you have to select the folder which you want to encrypt and do right click on that folder and click on properties and then click on ‘Advanced’ and then select “Encrypt content to secure data” and press the ‘Ok’ button and after a click on Apply and then press Ok. After doing this, the file or folder you choose will be encrypted and no one can access those files on their computer or laptop. If you have unencrypted the files you have to just untick the option “Encrypt content to secure data”. This trick mostly works on those computers or laptops that have the BitLocker installed on their computers or laptops.

After you do this, the details of your internet or wifi connection are shown on your screen. If this trick did not work, you have to write your username next to the “C<” and then type the “ipconfig/all”. If you have not remembered your username simply open your command prompt from the start button and then right-click on the command prompt and click on ‘Run as Administrator’.
