Watch your Computer, Laptop Video on your TV

Watching a video from your computer/Laptop is easy. All you need is DVI(Dual Video Interface) Cable, an RCA Cable, a DVI to VGA adopter if you want to use VGA cable. The
S-Video cable carries only video signals therefore a separate connection to carry sound signals will be required therefore. your Computer/Laptop must have both S-Video(Separate Video) port and arrangements to connect an RCA connector. Almost all modern computers. Laptops and TV sets are equipped with a port called S-Video port and the RCA connection arrangements.  The DVI cables and VGA cables are designed in such a way with pins in one side and socket in the other so that their connections are so easy that even a new operator can connect easily.

The S-video port on your Computer/Laptop is to be connected to the S-video input port of your TV by a round end 4point/7points cable. A VGA cable(15Pins) will be required if you use an old monitor. 15 pin cables give better results. Here you may need the DVI to VGA Adapter. As the S-Video cable carries only video signals therefore connect both your Computer/Laptop and TV with the RCA connector following the color code in simple words,black wire to black socket and so on.

Key Board Short cuts-Use these to work faster

Key Board Short cuts-Use these to work faster

While working on windows we need to use both mouse and key board. By our mouse we can implement a command by just clicking. Almost all the commands implemented by our mouse can be implemented by our key board using a single key or a combination of keys. This use of a single key or a combination of keys on our key board is called the key board short cuts or the key board commands. The key board short cuts or the key board commands are very easy and help us work faster. Experts say that the work on computers can be performed twenty percent faster if we use key board shortcuts instead of our mouse, though there are some tasks which can not be performed without the help of a mouse. Thus we can say that a key board and a mouse both are absolutely necessary to work on windows. Below are some key board shortcuts commonly used-
