Document
Image by http://bit.ly/1PETswU

There are many different document file types out there and not all of them work the same way. Opening a PAGES document on a Windows computer is bothersome and sending Microsoft Word documents is not advised because everyone can easily edit them.

In earlier articles, we have talked a lot about the how and why you may need to convert or save your documents into or as a different file format. To freshen up your memory, here’s our list of popular document file formats. Now, lets have a practical look at how you can save your documents in different formats easily with the programs you are already using!

 

How To Save Document In Different File Formats

Oftentimes, it is not necessary to download and install many different programs just to save or export your documents in another format. Many popular text editing programs already allow you to save your writing in another format than the ones native to the program. We have picked the four most popular text editing programs from different office suites to show you how to!

At the end of the article you will find a comparative table of file types that can be saved using the single programs.

 

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is one of the most versatile text editing programs when it comes to saving files in different formats. For exhaustive information about all the single formats, check out this article of file formats for saving in Microsoft Word.

How to:

  1. Go to the File menu and there to Save As
  2. In the box, enter a file name for your document
  3. Click on the Format pop-up menu to find all the files you can save your file as
  4. Choose the one you want and click Save

Microsoft Word also allows you to change the default file format it saves documents in. To change this, open the Save As box once more and click on Options. Click on the Save Word files as pop-up menu and choose the format you want to have set as a default. Don’t forget to save your changes.

 

Apple Pages

Apple users are more familiar with the Pages text editing program (even though there is a Microsoft Word version for Apple Mac computers). The selection of formats to save as is not as big, but there is still enough variety.

How to:

  1. Go to the File menu and there to Export To
  2. There you can choose the individual file format
  3. Afterwards, you can select different settings depending on your choice
  4. Enter the file name and some tags (optional)
  5. Choose the folder where you want to save your document and click on Export

 

OpenOffice / LibreOffice

OpenOffice and LibreOffice are the open source equivalents to Microsoft’s Word program. The functions, features and commands are very similar to those of Word. While saving in a Word document is also possible, these open source alternatives introduced a new and open standard document format as well: ODT

How to: 

  1. Go to the File menu and there to Save As
  2. In the box, enter a file name for your document
  3. Click on the Format pop-up menu to find all the files you can save your file as
  4. Choose the one you want and click Save

Saving as PDF, however, is a bit different:

  1. Go to the File menu and there to Export as PDF
  2. Change the settings according to your wishes, then click on Export
  3. In the box, enter a file name for your document and click on Save

A quick way to do so is to simply press the “Export as PDF” button in your taskbar as well. You can find it next to the Print buttons:

SaveAsPDF

Furthermore, with LibreOffice and OpenOffice you can export your documents into other file formats like images as well:

  1. Go to the File menu and there to Export As
  2. In the box, enter a file name for your document
  3. Click on the Format pop-up menu to find all the files you can save your file as
  4. Choose the one you want and click Save

This allows you to export your writing into PNG and JPEG and JPG as well.

If your program still isn’t saving in the format you wish, you can always go to document.online-convert.com and convert your documents, images or other media into different document and ebook types.

See how to turn your smartphone into a wi-fi hot spot
Image Credit by = Hector M.

Being connected to the world wide web or being able to go Online is almost something which is a must for most of us these days. That’s why you need to know how to use your cellular phone as a wi-fi hotspot for those days or places you have no internet wi-fi access. Luckily though, most smartphones allow you to easily turn them into a portable wi-fi hotspot to connect your computer, tablet or laptop to the internet. This works great when you are away from home or the office.

 

 

When You’re On The Go

 

If you find yourself away from home in an airport, hotel or out on the town, there’s nothing worse than not having no wi-fi internet access. Also, there are many times when the internet you find is so bad, that it constantly keeps dropping or losing signal. Finally, there’s the security risk. Many people will often find so called ‘Free Wi-Fi’ spots when they are outside. However, in some cases, these free wi-fi spots are ruses used try hackers to lure you to use their connections. Once you log on though, they get access to your personal information such as banking and credit cards. It is very easy for hackers to use this backdoor system as a way to hack your devices.

Your Smartphone Is The Internet

 

The great news is that if you have a smartphone, it is possible to use your device and turn it into a portable wi-fi hotspot. This can be done by using your device’s 3G or 4G connection in order to gain access to the web. The process used to do this is called ‘tethering’. One thing to keep in mind though is that you need to be aware of your carrier or network’s terms and conditions when it comes to data usage and tethering. Many carriers have a limited amount of data which you can use each month. Using your smartphone in this manner can have you reaching your monthly data allowance very quickly. Furthermore, when you do exceed your data limits, you may end up getting charges for the rest of the data you use; plus over the limit fees. Still, checking your data limit and keeping an an eye on what you are using can help you avoid this.

 

Now that you know what you  can do with your smartphone, the next step is turning it into a hotspot and learning how to tether with it.

 

Step One –

Once you tap it, depending on your smartphone, you should get a window which has the Mobile Hotspot turned off as well. Hit the off switch and turn it on.

 

Step Five –

Easy steps to turning your smartphone into a wi-fi hotspot - 5

After you tap the button to turn it on, you will get a message letting you know you are now turning on portable wi-fi hotspot and it will turn off the wi-fi (If you are connected to one).

 

Step Six –

Easy steps to turning your smartphone into a wi-fi hotspot - 6

You should get a warning informing you that turning on the mobile hotspot option will turn on mobile data. If you are ready to proceed then hit OK.

 

Step Seven –

Easy steps to turning your smartphone into a wi-fi hotspot - 7

Once you have done that, you will see a screen that pops up which will allow you to configure your wi-fi hotspot via your cellular phone. You should be able to see the name of your device as well as the security and password. Hit Save and proceed to the next step.

 

Step Eight –

Easy steps to turning your smartphone into a wi-fi hotspot - 8

 

You’re almost done. Now simply to go on your PC, laptop or tablet and choose your device’s network from the list of all the Wi-Fi available connections.

After you have done that, simply click on connect . Your next ^& final step is to enter the password for the Wi-Fi hotspot you saved earlier. You’re all set. Once your device is connected, you will be able to go Online and surf the web via using your handset’s 3G or 4G data connection.

2. Upload Your Video Or Enter A Link

Once you have chosen your converter, choose the upload method fitting for your video. You can either upload it from your hard drive, enter a URL (YouTube is not supported) or choose a video stored in your Google Drive or Dropbox folders.

02_ChooseFile-Convert

 

3. Set Optional Settings

If you’re more experienced with audio files, you can set one or more of the optional settings. They allow you to change the bitrate or sampling rate, as well as to normalize your audio file.

Cool Features Of An Online Video To Audio Program

As mentioned before, there is a great optional feature you can use when converting your video file to audio: Trim Audio.

This option allows you to cut chunks from the beginning or end from a video so they don’t appear in your audio file. Why is this such a great feature? Because some videos containing music are longer, having an intro or long outro. With the trim audio function, you can get rid of these parts and download the “essence of the audio” so to speak.

Easy To Use Hash Generator Online

Easy to use hash encryption tools - Online Convert
Image Credit by = http://bit.ly/1SrZXq7

For those looking for an easy to use hash generator Online, then Online Convert offers you one with many different formats to convert to. Hash encryption used to be something that most of us heard on TV or movies involving high-tech plots. However, with the recent upsurge in Internet and electronic device usage these days, that is no longer the case. Hash encryption is everywhere and if you are not using it to protect your sensitive data, you could be in danger of hackers or scams.

 

 

 

 

Hash Encryption Defined

 

Hash encryption are cryptographic hash functions which are considered almost impossible to invert or devalue. One simple way to look at a hash function is by thinking of it this way; if you take the number 5 (five) and send it to someone, then it is easy to see it just as it is; the number 5. However, if you add hash encryption to the same number 5, it might turn out to be something like this – 8AEGHDC7 F67HGH7CA 98K24LM 45JH87KC KD392OP – which is nearly impossible to decode or figure out.  Another way to look at hash encryption is by thinking of baking a loaf of bread. With a loaf of bread, you first start out with your inputs ie; flour, yeast, water, etc. When you apply the hash function (baking + mixing) then you end up getting the end results which is a loaf of baked bread. There are many different hash functions such as binary or string. A hash function is considered any function which can be utilized to map data of arbitrary proportions to data of fixed size.

Why The Need For Hash Encryption?

 

As we stated earlier, the rise in both Internet usage and people with access to Online sites has risen quite dramatically the past few years. Electronic devices have made this possible since people no longer need just a computer or laptop to go online anymore. Because of this rise in Online usage, there is also a spike in hacking and cyber crimes. This means that having simple and/or easy to remember passwords is dangerous and not recommended. Hash encryption allows you to create hashes for important & sensitive data such as passwords. Having well encrypted passwords can help protect your personal data, files and financial information as well.

 

Still, there are many Websites which charge users for hash encryption. Other sites offer to do so but only if you sign up or download certain programs or software. None of these options are needed for hash encryption if you use Online Convert’s hash encryption tools. And yes, they are not just easy to use, but also totally free. For others looking to calculate the checksum of their files, you can also do that here as well.

 

Take a look at Checksum & Hash – What are they and what do I need them for?

 

What’s Your Hash Function?

 

If you are looking for ways to hash encrypt or convert files into MD4, Adler32, SHA-1 or any other formats, simply go to Hash Generetion and choose the generator required. From here you can generate a hash using Haval 128 Bit encryption tool or calculate your GOST hash from your passwords. There are all kinds of options to choose from which is pretty awesome and helpful.

Remember, always keep your personal information such as passwords stored in at least two different safe places in case you lose access to one. Of course, access to these places should be encrypted and well protected. There are Apps such as LastPass which work great in storing and keeping all of your passwords in one place.  Being able to browse or do whatever you choose to do Online should be safe and easy. By using Hash encryption and protecting yourself and your data, you are making sure that is always the case.

Image Credit by = http://bit.ly/1SnXzEz

Videos are everywhere you look these days. One the reasons behind this is the recent increase in usage of cellular phones and other devices which can record. Still, there are some video formats which come with restrictions and cannot be played, shared or watched on certain devices. For this reason we will show you how to convert video files to MKV easily and for free in a few steps.

 

What Is MKV Format?

MKV files are also known as video files in Matroska format. Since the MKV file format is so flexible, easy to use and open standard, it has become the preferred file extension for high definition video Online. MKV files are not a video compression or an audio format. They are files which are actually multimedia container formats that can incorporate video, audio and subtitles into an individual file.

The word Matroska is Russian in origin referring to the famous Russian Matryoshka nesting dolls. However, the word is now synonymous with MKV as this is what most people immediately associate it with. Matroska is just like MP4 or AVI formats which are also open multimedia free formats. They are not covered by patents or restrictive licenses and financial hurdles. This is why many videos are not able to play in certain computers or devices due to restrictions. Once a file has been converted to MKV, it is enabled to carry similar kinds of multi-stream content such as Blu-ray or DVD discs. For that reason, among others, MKV is such a popular format to convert your files to.
