Install Tabbed Windows Explorer Toolbar For Browsing Multiple Folders From One Window

Almost everyone has become used to tabs for their Internet browser. Applications that incorporate tabs make life a lot easier and cleaner for that matter. I have become used to tabs for my SSH client, tabs for Internet Explorer, tabs for Console, tabs for Trillian, etc. One thing I have always wanted but never took the time to look into though was tabs for Windows Explorer. I am constantly in various folders comparing files or moving files between folders and typically have 3 to 4 Windows Explorer windows open at all times. Well I finally decided to take the time to look for a solution and was pleasantly suprised to find QT TabBar from QuizoApps.

Skype: Get a List of Voicemail, Delete Skype Voicemail

The newer versions of Skype, which include version 4 and above, appear to not provide a way to list or delete voicemail messages. There are two options I have come up with to resolve the issue of managing Skype voicemail messages. I would think that Skype will resolve this issue in the near future however it has already taken longer than I would have thought to provide a solution to users to manage voicemail. I am currently running Skype version 4.0.0.226 so the below information is based off of that Skype version which at the time of writing this article is the most current. I recommend using option two which includes a third party piece of software so you still get the benefits of the latest release of Skype.

When You Sync the iPod Touch Or iPhone Where Are The Backups Stored

By default when you  connect your iPhone or Touch to your Windows PC the device will sync with your iTunes. The sync not only synchronizes certain data as described below but it also does a backup of data stored on the iDevice as well. This backup will allow you to restore most items back to your iPhone or iPod Touch if something happens to the data located on that device. Knowing the location of this data can be important in case you want to also take that data and make another backup off of your computer.
