Evernote Portable: Install Evernote on a USB Thumb Drive

Another handy feature of Evernote I just discovered is the ability to easily install it on a USB thumb drive. This would allow you to take all of your notes with you anywhere easily. The main advantage here is if you have an Internet connection some of the time but not all of the time and you would need access to those notes with or without the Internet connection. Evernote Portable would allow you continue to update those notes via the USB thumb drive and then synchronize with the Evernote system at a later date. Below I will describe how to install Evernote Portable on a USB drive and list some of the details regarding the new installation.

Turn Off Firefox “Do You Want Firefox to remember this password?”

This can be a convenient feature however  it is a better policy to always type in your password for many reasons. What if someone had access to your computer without your permission and all of your passwords were stored within Firefox? It would only take them a little amount of time before they had access to any site that you had previously logged into. To turn off the offer of remembering passwords in Firefox follow the below instructions.
