Windows 10 Memory Problem [Solved]

Advertisment

Windows 10 Memory Problem

If you are a windows 10 user then this is a problem then windows 10 memory problem is a problem that you have probably faced. By memory problem, I mean the storage size of C drive in a windows 10 operating system. The problem occurs when you update your windows (mostly on major and big size updates). It can also happen when you do not clear your junk files or cached files for a long time.

How to detect the problem

The thing is, you won’t have to manually detect the windows 10 memory problem, the problem will find you. Yes, you will see your C drive space will gradually decrease but the fact is you haven’t done anything that can cause in decreasing of free memory. It happened to me several times when I haven’t installed any software on my C drive, put my working files there or even downloaded something.

Let me remind you, I always use a separate drive for downloading and game installation. Both of them needs a huge amount of space. No matter whether I update or reinstall my operating system or not, I would like my games and download folder to be the same they were before updating or reinstalling.

Solution to windows 10 memory problem

Don’t worry, the solution is really easy. There’s no need to install any additional software to get rid of this problem, thanks to windows 10. Go to the system settings for windows 10. To do this, you will need to go to System settings. You can go there in several different ways, I will show the easiest one. First, click the message icon on the bottom right of the screen and then click on “All Settings”.

All Settings

You will see a bunch of windows settings, click on System for the next step:

System Settings

Click on storage and you will see the list of your drives like this.

Memory status

Click on the C drive, you will see where your space is being used. I see my temporary files took almost 14GB, click on it and you will see the list of temporary files.

Windows 10 Memory Problem

The space is more than 14GB, it actually almost 20, so I need to clean the space up. Here all the files are temporary so these are files that I won’t actually be needed. I will just select them all and delete them. After that I will see significant change in my free space of the HDD.

Video Attached

Free space on your C drive might not be important if you have a lot of space in your C drive but my recommendation will be, no matter how small or how big you C drive is, after all, it is the operating system drive, so you should keep it as free as you can. I hope you can do this by your own, if you still have any problem, I have recorded a screenshot video of the whole process in a 3.28 min of YouTube video, go ahead and watch it.

Asphalt 9 Legends First Update

Advertisment

Asphalt 9 first update

The first ever update for Asphalt 9: Legends was out on 5th of October, 2018 which was a few days ago. The update was almost 500 MB in size so you can imagine the changes that has been brought to this update. Asphalt 9 is a perfect successor to Asphalt 8 in all sections. This game has a lot of different types of races to offer to new and existing racers. I wrote a post on Asphalt 9 legends review. You can go ahead and read that post. Today, I will be talking about the update that has been installed, what does it offer and if it is good or bad.

Daily Goals

Daily goals is the new option in Asphalt 9. From your main game section, you can see a Daily goals tab. In that tab, you will see a list of things you need to do and in exchange of that, you earn tokens and car blueprints. Right now, this daily goal system offers Lamborghini Asterion, a class B car, which is obviously a good one.

Asphalt 9 daily goals

Right now, the goals to complete are as follows [5 tokens each]:

  • Claim card packs from the shop
  • Play any race
  • Update Cars
  • Play daily events
  • Play multiplayer races
  • Purchase at the legend store
  • Win reputation for your club
  • Apply import parts to a car

Completing either of the above goals gives you 5 tokens and a count to 6 for winning a blueprint for Lamborghini Asterion. This is a good way to earn some tokens daily basis and also get a good car. As you know, Lamborghini Asterion is a very good car for both career and online multiplayer mode.

Introduction to new car Lotus Elise Sprint 220

In this upgrade, you get to have a new car Lotus Elise Sprint 220, a D class car. If you have played Asphalt 8 before, then you know that the starting of Asphalt 8 was also like starting with as many as 50 cars at the start. But they kept adding new cars every now and then. Asphalt 8 added more than 200 cars at the end of their four and a half years. I think, Asphalt 9 is also going the same direction. From personal point of view, Asphalt 9 is better than Asphalt 8 in every direction, you can have other thoughts.

Lotus Elise Sprint 220

New season

Along with new car you also get new season. The season is only available to see if you have unlocked the car first.

Asphalt 9 new season

New multiplayer seasons:

There have been minor changes to multiplayer system. Before the update, you could play with any car from your garage but after this update, you have some fixed choice of cars for each season and also for each league. By league, I mean the bronze league, the gold, the platinum league and last but not least, the legend league.

Time for the season is now a variant, a season lasts for 2 weeks but the next season is ended within three days. The next one might be only 1 week and so on. Right now an open season is going on and it will end in 7 days.

Open Series

Multiplayer packs:

There’s been change in multiplayer packs. Before this update, you needed 10, 20 and 30 flags within an hour of playing the first multiplayer game in asphalt 9 legends. Well, it seemed a bit hard to do, specially the third target of 30 flags within an hour. So, this time the number of flags is 5, 10 and 20 and the time is also increased. For this reason, racers can win easy packs and the pack elements are good as well. If you have the patient to score the 20 flags, you will surely get an amazing blueprint.

Asphalt 9 Multiplayer Packs

Club race:

I think the biggest move towards this update is the club race. Players among a club can now play races between themselves. This is an amazing move. Multiplayer is always fun but there’s no possibility that you are gonna get your teammate in a multiplayer race, even if happens, the chances are very low. So, playing a club member is fun. Though it will cost fuel, but that’s completely worth it.

Asphalt 9 Club Race

Some bug fixes:

There have been some bug fixes as well that I noticed. Before this update, if you connect to a multiplayer race and decide to go back, your fuel would have been lost, but thanks to gameloft, that doesn’t happen now anymore. If you, for some reason, decide to go back after hitting play button in multiplayer, you get your fuel back. That’s great, because a fuel is really very costly for a high rated car. I don’t like the fueling system at all, but as they are still here, the decision to give the fuel back is good.

Asphalt 9 bug fix

So, that was the overall overview of the first update of Asphalt 9 legends game. If you haven’t read the review, please to ahead and read that post about Asphalt 9 legends review. What are you thinking about this game? Let me know your opinion. Like and share this post on facebook and other social and like my facebook page. I will see you in the next post or tutorial.

Font Awesome 5 In-Depth Analysis

Advertisment

Font Awesome is arguably the best source for using icons. It is very popular comparing to other free font providing services. Why is that? Because it is free and very easy to use and customize. Font awesome was first released in 2012 (source: Wikipedia) and has became very popular in the recent years, especially in version 4. Font awesome 5 has been upgraded from version 4  in last December of 2017. There have been some major changes. Before Font Awesome 5, font awesome 4 syntax was like this:


 <i class="fab fa-facebook"></i>
 <i class="fab fa-twitter"></i>
 <i class="fas fa-cogs"></i>
 <i class="fas fa-wrench"></i>

Upgrading from Font Awesome 4

In this syntax, all the icon names start with an ‘fa’, which is obviously the shortcut for font awesome and the next thing is ‘facebook’ for the actual icon name. But in font awesome 5, the icons have been categorized. How? They introduced some new prefixes for using the icons. Basically, there are 4 to be exact. They are:

  • Font Awesome Brands. [fab] (brands like facebook, twitter, youtube and so on)
  • Font Awesome Solid of Font Awesome. [fas or fa] (solid icons like settings, star and etc)
  • Font Awesome Regular.
  • Font Awesome Light.

The last two categories, Font awesome regular and font awesome light are available for paid version only.

Using font awesome 5

Using font awesome 5 is as easy as it gets. You can use it by calling in from CDN or using it by downloading into your system first and then using it. I find the second one handy because even if your internet is slow or down, you can use without any problem at all. So, if you download font awesome 5, you will see folder containing so many files. Here’s a reminder, you can use just the brands icons or just the solid icons or you can also use the master css file to use them all. This is just a css file so you can use all versions at once or you can call the ones you require. So, it’s your choice.

The separate versions will come in handy if you use font awesome just for social icons in your website. As of now, font awesome version is …….. and you will need to go to ‘web-fonts-with-css’ folder and in the ‘css’ sub folder, you will see a file named ‘fontawesome-all.min.css’. Copy the file to your website directory. Also copy the ‘webfonts’ folder. Whatever folder you copy the css file, the webfonts folder must be one step back of that directory. If you copy the font awesome css file to your /css directory, make sure you have webfonts folder on the root directory.

Then call the css file from the head section of your website.

Font Awesome 5 Output

Try out these following codes and see if the execute.

 

	<i class="fab fa-facebook"></i>
	<i class="fab fa-twitter"></i>
	<i class="fas fa-cogs"></i>
	<i class="fas fa-wrench"></i>

If you have done everything right, you will see font awesome working like this:

Font Awesome 5 in depth analysis

So, that was the detailed usage of font awesome 5. I hope it was easy. If you want to use font awesome 5 as background pseudo element, you can do that. This post is already long enough so I think I will write another post maybe with another video in the near future. Stay tuned with my facebook page for further updates. If you haven’t been able to do this right, watch this whole process in the following 06.25 minute video you’ll certainly be able to do it.

I hope the process was easy and you understood. If you have, make sure to share the post and also subscribe to the youtube channel while watching.

 

 

Asphalt 9 Legends Review

Advertisment

For those who don’t know what is Asphalt 9 Legends can skip the post straight away. Asphalt 9 Legends is probably the most popular racing games on mobile phones. I am here to give you the in depth Asphalt 9 Legends review. Along with play store, this game is also available on the windows store, that means it can be played from windows phones and PC, Laptops as well but it is widely known as the most popular mobile racing games. By the name, you can guess that this is the 9th edition of the game after the last one called Asphalt 8: Airborne. As of now, Asphalt 8 has over 300 million installs and Asphalt 9 has 5 million+. Asphalt 8 has been in the market for over 5 years and Asphalt 9 was released on July 25, 2018.

Asphalt 9 Legends Review

Upgrade from Asphalt 8: Airborne

Asphalt 8: Airborne was both multiplayer and single player offline version but Asphalt 9 Legends is fully online. Though Asphalt 9 has single player career mode but still requires an active internet connection to operate. The hardware requirement is also a fact. Whereas, Asphalt 8 could run on a device half a decade ago, so you can imagine the requirements were not that high but Asphalt 9 requires 3GB of ram and graphics output for best results. That is a major change in these two games.

Asphalt-9-Legends-game

What’s new on Asphalt 9 Legends

Game modes:

Asphalt 9 has so many game modes. Always running events, daily, weekly and more. It also has a huge career mode of 1440 flags. The flags are the additional requirements along with winning the race. Let’s say, you are given a target of winning a race and putting down 2 opponents. By being successful, you win two flags, one for winning and another for putting down 2 opponents. There are currently 6 seasons and more will be added soon.

Asphalt-9-Legends-multiplayer-flag

Blueprints:

In Asphalt 8 Airborne, you could buy car using the coins you earn but that’s not how it’s gonna work on Asphalt 9 Legends. You have to collect blueprints for cars and then when you collect all of them, you can start up a car and use it in multiplayer and career mode. You also get blueprints and upgrade parts every 4 hours. Each 4 hours, you will be given a free pack.

Club:

Asphalt 9 has a brand new feature, CLUB. A club can contain up to 20 players and anyone and everyone racing in any mode, helps the club to gain points. The club has ranking based on that.

Multiplayer:

The main attraction is of course the Multiplayer mode. You gain points by winning a race. You also win flags for entering and winning races. 1 flag for participating, 1 flag for being second and 2 flags for being first. You can gain maximum of 3 flags in a single race. Within playing time of one hour, you have to gain 10 flags, 20 flags and then 30 flags to win multiplayer packs that can give you new cars or modification. There are 4 leagues, bronze leagues, gold leagues, platinum leagues and legendary leagues. The leagues work in this way:

Asphalt-9-Legends-gold-league

  • Bronze League < 1200 ranking
  • Gold League    = (1200 – 1499) ranking
  • Platinum League = (1500-1799) ranking
  • Legend League >1800 ranking

Asphalt-9-Legends-platinum-league

The bigger league you are in; the more prizes you win after end of a season. A season is 4, 7, 10 or 14 days longer. Your goal is to stay on the top to get best prizes.

Drawback:

The major drawback of this game is the fueling system. You can play only for a limited time with a car. Some cars have 6 fuels, some has 5, some has 4. That means after playing 6 races with a car, you will have to give it a rest to refuel. The refueling time also differs from 15 minutes to 5 hours. You can refuel quickly by watching ads or applying tokens. You can earn tokens by winning several conditions by racing in any mode or you can buy them with real money. The other drawback is the configuration required to play this game. The average phones won’t be able to play this game at full graphics settings, so that could be a problem.

My opinion:

I am playing this game regularly and enjoying it very very much and will certainly keep playing. As of now, the first update of the game is announced so the game will certainly be better. Keep your eyes on this blog to get regular updates on android games. Till then, good bye and happy gaming.

WordPress Upload File Size Limit Increase

Advertisment

File size limitation in WordPress

The file upload limit of a WordPress site is often limited. No matter where the site is uploaded, whether localhost or a live server, wordpress upload file size limit mostly depends on the hosting server. The limit basically starts with 2048 KB or 2 MB and is some cases 3 MB.

Problems

This size might look okay if you are uploading text or office files such as .txt, .docx, .pptx and even some low-res images. But it surely won’t be enough for heavy media type files (such as mp3, mp4 etc), high-res images and even some pdf files. When you want to upload them, you see your WordPress upload file size limit is max 2MB.

What are you going to do now? Compress the file size? Use another server? 😛 . Just kidding, you can set the WordPress upload file size limit from your WordPress folder in a few lines of code. So without wasting anymore time, let’s do this.

WordPress upload file size limit

You can limit the file size of your wordpress site up to 64 MB. You can also keep anything below this, no problem with that. 64 MB is the max size. Based on your requirement you can keep WordPress upload file size limit to whatever you want. This is a very small task. All you need to do is to go to the root folder of your theme and find .htaccess file. Open it up in your editor and insert the following code:

php_value upload_max_filesize 64M
php_value post_max_size 64M
php_value max_execution_time 300
php_value max_input_time 300

Save the file now and go back to media page. You should see the limit has increased. If you want to change the size, you can do this right away. Just change the size limit again in the .htaccess file. Since you saved the file, you will now see the new limitation appears on your add media page.

WordPress upload file size limit increase

So, I hope the process was easy to follow. If you are still confused somehow, I captured the whole process in a 02.22 min YouTube video which you can check out right now. If it helps you, give a like, leave a comment and subscribe for future uploads.

CSS Dropdown Menu with HTML5 in 5 mins

Advertisment

What is CSS dropdown Menu?

I am guessing, as you are reading this post, you might come here from some social link or from google, but you surely know what a css dropdown menu is. If somehow you don’t then, it is a little extension to the regular menu we see in every website. It’s the same menu where you can create level 2, level 3 and more level menus.

Mostly the menus are level 2 deep, it might get to level 3 sometimes. It is very unlikely to have a menu which is 4 level deep. Nobody wants a puzzle inside a menu, right? If you are a visitor and you have to go through 4 level deep for a menu item, you won’t like it. But the good news is, when you create a pure css dropdown menu, you only need to work with level 3 and the rest is automatically done. So, after this, it doesn’t matter how deep the menu is, it will work just fine no matter how many levels it has.

CSS Dropdown Menu

Creating CSS dropdown Menu

Creating a css dropdown menu is pretty easy thing to do but sometimes it might be tricky for new folks around. When I started developing and was looking to create a dropdown menu I often stuck at a point. But later I studied a little more about how things work in a dropdown menu and saw some examples, it was a piece of cake.

No jQuery for a menu, please

So, when you roam around for a dropdown menu, you might see some related searches like jQuery dropdown menu. You don’t need to do that. It would be like bringing a canon to fight a mosquito. Why jquery when you can simply create a css dropdown menu?

Marking up

Markup is very important. And it’s also not very fancy so everyone should end up with the same markup. First, let’s take some list items with links inside an unordered list then create lists inside those list items and so on and so forth.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
 <meta charset="UTF-8">
 <title>Dropdown Menu</title>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
</head>
<body>

 <header>
 <nav class="main-menu">
 <ul>
 <li><a href="">Home</a></li>
 <li><a href="">About</a>
 <ul>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 </ul>
 </li>
 <li><a href="">Services</a></li>
 <li><a href="">Customers</a>
 <ul>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a>
 <ul>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 </ul>
 </li>
 <li><a href="">Sub Menu</a></li>
 </ul>
 </li>
 <li><a href="">Contact</a></li>
 </ul>
 </nav>
 </header>
 
</body>
</html>

CSS for the dropdown menu

First, let’s fix the first menu. Then we will go for the rest. In this portion just edit the first level.


.main-menu ul {
list-style: none;
position: relative;
float: left;
background-color: #202020;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}
.main-menu ul li {
position: relative;
float: left;
}
.main-menu ul li a{
display: block;
color: #fff;
text-decoration: none;
font-family: Segoe UI;
font-size: 18px;
padding: 10px 15px;
}

Now, target the second level.


.main-menu ul ul{
display: none;
position: absolute;
top: 100%;
left: 0;
background-color: #202020;
}

.main-menu ul li:hover>ul{
display: block;
}

.main-menu ul ul li{
float: none;
width: 200px;
}

And at last, the third level


.main-menu ul ul ul{
top: 0;
left: 100%;
}

.main-menu ul li:hover{
background-color: #101010;
}

Additional support

This menu is just simple css dropdown menu but if you want to give it WordPress support, just add some additional classes like ‘current-menu-item’ and so on, so that when you take it to the WordPress, you don’t need to do same thing twice. And you can always use the same menu over and over again for all your websites.

I am sorry for adding those codes individually, might have been easier for you if it were all at once. But, not to worry, you can just copy and paste them, if you want to do it yourself, you are welcome too. As you can see the process was really easy. If you need more assistance, I have recorded a video of 11.57 YouTube video which will be the whole process literally.
