How to Filter Files by Size in Windows 10

windows file explorer

Windows 7 introduced the ability to filter files by size, date modified, tags, type, and more in Windows Explorer. This is a powerful feature that helps users more easily find and manage the ever-growing mass of files that accumulates so quickly.

Windows Explorer was renamed File Explorer in Windows 8, and it was given a different interface, which made the switch from the old drop-down menu system to ribbon toolbars. Despite this, it maintained the same basic functionality. The Windows 10 File Explorer makes search filters more intuitive than ever by organizing the filters into the File Explorer ribbon.

What are some practical uses of this?

  • Filter out gigantic file sizes, and see if you can delete any to free up some memory.

  • Pull up old pictures for Throwback Thursday.

  • Find a document by searching according to type and date when you cannot remember what you named a file and where you saved it.

How to Enable Assistive Touch on iPhone

Turn ON Assistive Touch on iPhone

Since its introduction with iOS 5 in 2012, Assistive Touch has become one of the most practical and helpful features on the iPhone. One reason for this is that it can be used as an alternative for all of your phone’s physical buttons. In fact, you can use your iPhone with a broken Power button with Assistive Touch. Since the iPhone does not have a physical Back button, the Home Button also gets worn out over time. Fortunately, you can use Assistive Touch to save your phone’s Home button from wear and tear and to save you from repair costs for Home button replacements. The latest iPhones have the Assistive Touch enabled by default. If you accidentally turned it off, this article will show you how to enable Assistive Touch on iPhone.

Find Gas Prices While Navigating with Google Maps


You are on a road trip, and your fuel level is dropping lower and lower. You know you are going to have to stop for gas soon, but you want to choose a gas station that is on your way and is as cheap as possible. You are already using Google Maps for navigation, so you have your passenger search for a gas station nearby. (You are driving. Keep your eyes on the road!) Google maps will add gas stations to the map and tell you how many minutes a pit stop would tack onto your trip. Many gas stations also have pricing information. You pick the cheapest one that only adds an extra a minute or two.

Gas price maps have been around for a while, most notably with the GasBuddy app. However, the fact that gas prices are being integrated with the world’s most-used map app is big news. This feature is brand new to Google Maps in version 9.16. The update is being rolled out to Android devices over the next few weeks. It is not yet available for iPhone. Make sure to update Google Maps as soon as it is available to you so that you can start using this great new feature.

How to Block Ads on Chrome

Adblock Plus

We are assaulted by advertisements on a daily basis. We get them in the mail, see them plastered on billboards and buses, and they clamor for our attention all over the internet. Fortunately, there is software available called Adblock Plus that will remove ads from your screen and block pop-up ads. This makes browsing the internet a much more pleasant experience. Note that this will not affect video ads on sites like Hulu.

Adblock Plus shows up as an unobtrusive icon near the address bar. It will look slightly different depending on which browser you are using, but it works the same way. Occasionally, Adblock Plus will block a pop-up that is not an advertisement. You can add one-time exceptions to the blocker, or you can disable Adblock Plus on certain websites.
