With the Increase in network security creating passwords for an account have become more complicated. Most of the web applications or websites require at least 8 characters with a minimum of one uppercase and lower case letter and many more never ending criteria.
Fortunately our browsers have become smarter in the sense that they act like a password manager. Once you login to your account, the browser would prompt you whether you would like to save the password or not. This saves a lot of time in entering your credentials whenever you log in to an application and the headache of remembering passwords.
But what if you need to manage more than one account that logs Into the same website? As you have seen a browser can manage only one set of credentials for a website. For Instance if you have a personal account and a work account for a website. Every time you login you would have to enter the credentials from one of your accounts which tends to become quite Inconvenient.
Google Chrome has a solution for this kind of problem, it is called profiles. One can create as many profiles in Google Chrome. Each profile can manage their own bookmarks, history and credentials. Which essentially means that there is no overlap between any two profiles.
In order to create a profile, one would have to follow these steps-
- Click on your account on the top right hand corner.
- And select Manage People
3. This would take you to a window that shows you the existing profiles. Now click on Add Person
4. Enter a name for the account and click on Save. This would now create a Desktop Shortcut which gives you access to your new profile.

SharePoint is a platform for document management and collaboration. Documents such as Word, Excel and PDF’s are the common document types that are uploaded in SharePoint. In order to view documents in SharePoint, particularly SharePoint Online, you would normally click on a file which opens an Online Version of the Document.
Suppose you have documents that you need to access in a regular basis, it would be Inconvenient for a person to navigate through different pages and finally land Into the Document.
If you have One Note and you need to view the document, all you have to do is copy the URL of the Word Document from the Address Bar and paste it on One Note. After you paste it One Note would automatically render the document. This saves you time navigating and searching for the Document!
Have you ever tried determining the age of a person in a picture out of curiosity? We might be able to guess sometimes and we may sometimes not. Due to changes in lifestyle sometimes it is hard to determine the age. People who are in their 20’s, if they put on weight may appear to be in their 40’s and at the same time people in their 40’s 50’s or even 60’s, if they are able to maintain themselves may appear to be in their 30’s!
Now we have tools to determine just that. Amazon and Microsoft have come up with their own tools to determine the age. It uses facial recognition technology to do this. Both of them are free to use. For Amazon, you need to have an Amazon Web Service Account to check it out. Please keep in mind that when you are creating the account, it would ask for your credit card details and then it would charge you a $1. Note that this $1 is not essentially a charge per se but just to verify whether your credit card Information is valid, it is $1 hold.
One would not have to create an account with Microsoft in order to use their feature. The outputs of the two tools appear to be different with respect to the way they display their content. Microsoft tries to give a number which might be the possible age whereas Amazon gives a range which the person’s age might fall into.
Feel free to check them out!
