መልካም ሥራ

ሀበሻ እንዲህ ይላል፡፡ 
"ጽድቅና ኩነኔ ቢኖርም ባይኖርም ከክፋት ደግነት ሳይሻል አይቀርም፡፡"
Specially if you are a believer of God or Allah, you should not expect a thing from anyone because God will counts all the good deeds you have done and he'll pay you. You should TRUST/BELIEVE God.
የማቴዎስ ወንጌል 7*12 "እንግዲህ ሰዎች ሊያደርጉላችሁ የምትወዱትን ሁሉ እናንተ ደግሞ እንዲሁ አድርጉላቸው፤ ሕግም ነቢያትም ይህ ነውና።"

Restore Default Windows 7 File Extension Type Associations

A lot of people asked me how to fix file extension problems. This means all the files and/or folders in your computer are opening using the same software/program which it should not do.

For instance, it opens all PDFs, folders, excel files, music and video files using Microsoft Word or Firefox or Chrome or any while all file types have their own specific program that opens them.

I found this great article by Brick here

Here's How You Can Solve the above Problem:
1. Click on the link for the file extension in the list below the blue NOTE box below that you would like to restore the default associations of. This will download it's .reg file.

2. Save the .reg file to your desktop.

Display or List Environment Variables in Windows

Environment variables are a set of dynamic named values that can affect the way running processes will behave on a computer.
They are part of the operating environment in which a process runs. For example, a running process can query the value of the TEMP environment variable to discover a suitable location to store temporary files, or the HOME or USERPROFILE variable to find the directory structure owned by the user running the process.

To view the contents of the environment variables:

1. open command prompt (write "cmd" in search bar of the start menu or in Run)
2. To list -> write "set" (without quotes) and hit enter
    To save it into file -> "set > output.txt" and hit enter
I.e. The file will be saved in C:\
To save the file in other directory "set > D:\output.txt" and hit enter
