Customize the Right Click Menu in Windows 7

Adding some extra features in the right click menu is a good practice to ease your work and save the time. You can add several items like Command prompt, Copy the contents to clipboard, CopyTo, MoveTo in your right click context menu in Windows7. These additions obviously will benefit you by saving your time. Let’s discuss about the methods one by one. All the methods described in this article are based on registry editing. So back up your registry before editing and keep yourself on the safe side.

Add “Open Command Prompt in This Folder” option

When you work in Command Prompt, many time you need to change the directory and generally you use the command “cd directory path”. If the file is in the deep of your hard disk then repeating the task to change any directory is quite boring. You can add an entry in the right click menu by which you can open the command prompt directly in the folder, just right clicking on it. Here is the simple registry tweak.

Press Windows key + R. Type “regedit” to open the registry.

Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell in the registry editor.

Create a new key under “shell” and name it “Command Prompt”.

In the right pane modify the value of “Default” by right clicking on it and then “Modify“. In the “Value data” field write “Command Prompt here”.

Similarly create another new key under the key “Command Prompt’ and name it as “command“.

Select the new key you’ve just created and modify “Default” similarly and put the following code in the “Value data” field.

cmd.exe /k cd %1

Now close your registry editor and right click on any folder. You should see the “Command Prompt here” option.

After choosing the option the command prompt will appear with the file path pointing to that folder.

You Can read another method of doing this on Add Command Prompt to right click menu in Windows Explorer Which I wrote and tested on windows XP.

Google tests cars that drive themselves

Google it has developed cars that drive themselves automatically in traffic, and that it has been testing them on the streets of California for months. It might seem like an unusual project for Google, but it could actually have big benefits. We’re not just talking about cars running Google Android. This is the stuff of science fiction. The only accident that has occurred so far, one of the cars was rear-ended by a driver at a stop light. human error! The vehicles have been tested on 140,000 miles of California road, from Silicon Valley to Santa Monica.

Each car is manned during the tests. One person sits in the driver’s seat, ready to take control of the vehicle instantly by grabbing the wheel or touch the brake should something go wrong with the system. The person in the passenger’s seat is an engineer who monitors the software operations on a computer.

Google hired engineers who previously participated in competitions and races involving automated cars – important turning points in the development of the technology, which has been coming into its own since around 2005 according to The New York Times.

If you first concern is one of safety, Google would argue that you’re going about it all wrong. Safety is one of the project’s purposes. Google believes that the technology could nearly half the number of automobile-related deaths because computers are supposedly better at driving than humans in the right circumstances.

There are other hypothetical pluses, too. The vehicles’ instant reaction time and 360-degree awareness would allow them to drive closer together on the highway than humans can, reducing traffic congestion.

They could be more careful when operating the gas, reducing fuel consumption. But the biggest  benefit for Google would be the hour or so of daily commute time the car owner would save. Instead of driving, he/she could either be productive or entertained in the vehicle, doing work on a wireless Internet connection or watching television. Google doesn’t say it explicitly, but TechCrunch was quick to note that this time could be spent using Google products and absorbing Goggle run advertising.

The most optimistic projection put this technology at least eight years away from market, though.

Legal hassles are among the myriad problems; all of the current traffic laws assume that a human driver is present in the vehicle. Do you think this technology will eventually be deployed, or is it just a pipe dream for Sergei and Larry?

Albert Einstein Who did change the world

After World War II, Einstein was a leading figure in the World Government Movement, he was offered the Presidency of the State of Israel, which he declined, and he collaborated with Dr. Chaim Weizmann in establishing the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Einstein always appeared to have a clear view of the problems of physics and the determination to solve them. He had a strategy of his own and was able to visualize the main stages on the way to his goal. He regarded his major achievements as mere stepping-stones for the next advance.

At the start of his scientific work, Einstein realized the inadequacies of Newtonian mechanics and his special theory of relativity stemmed from an attempt to reconcile the laws of mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. He dealt with classical problems of statistical mechanics and problems in which they were merged with quantum theory: this led to an explanation of the Brownian movement of molecules. He investigated the thermal properties of light with a low radiation density and his observations laid the foundation of the photon theory of light.

In his early days in Berlin, Einstein postulated that the correct interpretation of the special theory of relativity must also furnish a theory of gravitation and in 1916 he published his paper on the general theory of relativity. During this time he also contributed to the problems of the theory of radiation and statistical mechanics.

In the 1920’s, Einstein embarked on the construction of unified field theories, although he continued to work on the probabilistic interpretation of quantum theory, and he persevered with this work in America. He contributed to statistical mechanics by his development of the quantum theory of a monatomic gas and he has also accomplished valuable work in connection with atomic transition probabilities and relativistic cosmology.

After his retirement he continued to work towards the unification of the basic concepts of physics, taking the opposite approach, geometrisation, to the majority of physicists.

Einstein’s researches are, of course, well chronicled and his more important works include Special Theory of Relativity (1905), Relativity (English translations, 1920 and 1950), General Theory of Relativity (1916), Investigations on Theory of Brownian Movement (1926), and The Evolution of Physics (1938). Among his non-scientific works, About Zionism (1930), Why War? (1933), My Philosophy (1934), and Out of My Later Years (1950) are perhaps the most important.

Albert Einstein received honorary doctorate degrees in science, medicine and philosophy from many European and American universities. During the 1920’s he lectured in Europe, America and the Far East and he was awarded Fellowships or Memberships of all the leading scientific academies throughout the world. He gained numerous awards in recognition of his work, including the Copley Medal of the Royal Society of London in 1925, and the Franklin Medal of the Franklin Institute in 1935.

Einstein’s gifts inevitably resulted in his dwelling much in intellectual solitude and, for relaxation, music played an important part in his life. He married Mileva Maric in 1903 and they had a daughter and two sons; their marriage was dissolved in 1919 and in the same year he married his cousin, Elsa Löwenthal, who died in 1936. He died on April 18, 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey.
