I use KeepNote for taking notes in Backtrack. It is important to document progress on projects or simple notes about file locations, specific command switches, or other information that could get lost in the shuffle during a work session. KeepNote provides the functionality necessary to organize notes and search note content as necessary. On Backtrack it is beneficial to configure KeepNote’s Spell Check as well as KeepNote Helper Applications so you can benefit from the full potential of KeepNote. Below we describe some errors you may see when attempting to use certain KeepNote functionality and how to resolve them.
Typically when I want to modify a setting related to one of the browsers I use I open the main Preferences configuration window, navigate to the correct sub section, make the modification, and then save the new browser configuration setting. Opera does have a typical Preferences configuration window however I was initially unable to locate the torrent settings from within the that Preferences configuration window so I had to do a little more digging to find out where to modify the Opera Torrent Settings. Below I display the default Opera Preferences window where I could not find the Torrent Settings and then the proper way to modify the Opera web browser torrent settings.
As of Opera 10 you can set Opera to update automatically, notify of updates only, or to not even check for updates. I don’t use Opera daily however I probably do use it at least once a week for various tasks such as torrent downloads. Recently when I launched Opera it let me know that an update was available and asked if I wanted to download and install. I quickly clicked yes to upgrade Opera but realized that there was another option that was checked to upgrade Opera automatically in the future. I personally like to be notified about upgrades and then run the upgrade myself when it is convenient so I needed to modify this setting back to only notify me of new Opera updates. Below are instructions on how to set Opera web browser to upgrade automatically, notify you of Opera browser updates, or to not even check for new updates available for the Opera web browser.
There are many references to Safari shortcuts for OSX on Apple computers but not as many for Safari shortcuts on Windows computers so I figured it may help some people to have a reference for Safari shortcuts on computers running Windows. The below shortcuts have been specifically tested on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and Windows XP Professional 32-bit but I assume the below Safari web browser shortcuts will work on any version of Windows including all variations of Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 7. Many of the Safari shortcuts for Apple are identical to the Safari shortcuts for Windows below. There are however many Safari shortcuts that are different because of keys being named differently on Apple keyboards versus Windows keyboards.
If you are not very familiar with torrents then it is very easy to download them using Opera web browser. The .torrent files are configuration files that list a group of smaller files that need to be downloaded to create the larger file you are trying to obtain. The great thing about using Opera for torrents is the fact that you don’t have to be very familiar with the configuration of a more complex file you can simply click on the .torrent file and Opera will do the rest after you tell it the directory to download the torrent to.
