I have Windows 8 installed with Ubuntu 12.04 in Oracle VM VirtualBox and quite a few times I want to share files between them. For that, first you need to install VirtualBox Guest Additions for Linux. Guest additions consist of device drivers and system applications that optimize the guest operating system for better performance and usability.
To install Guest Additions go to Ubuntu Launcher and you would see VBOXADDITIONS_X.X.X_XXXX mounted.
HTC provides a nifty option to crop the photos in dimension specified for Facebook cover photos i.e. 851×315.
Open the picture that needs to be cropped from your Gallery.
Tap on “Edit” and then tap on “Transform”.
Select “Crop” option.
Now tap on the overflow icon (three vertical dots) and select “Facebook cover”.
The cropping tool will now resize in proportionate to the dimensions specified for Facebook cover photo.
This option is present on my HTC One X running on Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 and I am guessing here that it should be present in other HTC phones with Sense 5. If it doesn't then let me know in comments.
Over time your Outlook gets filled with quite a few Calendar entries and some of those entries have attachments in them which were take up unnecessary space. To find those Calendar entries in Outlook 2010 follow these steps:
1. Open your Calendar in Outlook 2010.
2. Go to “View” tab. Go to “Change View” and select “List”. You will get a list of all your Calendar appointments.
3. Click on “Add columns” in “View” tab.
4. From dialog select “All Appointment fields” and add “Size” from available columns.
5. You can now see the size column in your list which you can sort to identify the entries which have large attachments in them.
I recently started receiving error of "Authorization problem" on my HTC One X with my Facebook app. It seemed that HTC Sense was not able to access my Facebook account and this error message continually popped up in my notification.
Some time back I ran into this article which detailed about a nifty feature which enables you to zoom in and out of Google Maps by just one finger. To perform a one-hand zoom simply double tap and, after the second tap, leave your finger pressed. You can then move your finger up and down to zoom in an out.
And after the recent update to Google Chrome on Android (version 32) I found that this feature has been also been added there. So now you can zoom in and out using just one finger.
Around 2-3 months back I upgraded my HTC One X to 4.19.720.1 which came with Sense 5 and Android (Jelly bean) 4.2.2. Its a bit of disappointment that this would be the last update for this phone.
The above screenshot lists down some major changes in software, but there are many more tweaks. Sense 5 is major upgrade over Sense 4 with lot of UI changes with almost every icon updated (read that as flattened).
