Tips: How to turn ON the additional file and printer sharing options

Even though we have discussed a lot about printer sharing, yet this is another extended method to turn ON additional file and printer sharing feature. If you change your network location to Home or Work as we have discussed in the previous article, the network discovery will be automatically turned ON. Moreover, you can also turn ON these sharing options individually.
•    Network discovery
•    File sharing (in Windows 7, this is automatically turned on when you share a file or folder)
•    Public folder sharing
If you turn ON these options, your computer will be able to:
•    Find other computers and devices on your home network and have other computers find your computer
•    Share its files and folders
•    Share its Public folders

You can have three network discovery options that say:
•    On
If you enable this option, your computer will be visible to others on the network. Therefore, you can use this feature to share files and printers.

•    Off
This option is used to prevent your computer from seeing other network computers and devices. Moreover, this option prevents others on other network to view your computer.
•    Custom
This is a mixed state using which some settings related to network discovery are enabled. Remember that not all of them. If you select this option, the network discover can be turned ON, but if you or your system admin has disabled a firewall exception that will affect the network discovery though it is turned ON.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
