Select Multiple Gmail Messages via Mouse Click & Drag In Chrome

Gmail brought a lot of innovation to email, especially with its search features. However, one thing that remains traditional (akin to contemporary email services) is the method for selecting multiple messages, whereby requiring you to manually tick each check box for performing a batch action on multiple message threads/conversations. Click-n-Drag Checkbox For Gmail is an extension that aims to change that by letting you click and drag to select a bunch of items. This Chrome extension allows you to check/uncheck multiple checkboxes by clicking and dragging your mouse over their check marks. It is the perfect solution for selecting multiple emails in Gmail, especially when you don’t want to delete all of them. After you've installed the extension, click a checkbox and drag your mouse upwards or downwards to select a range of messages. This handy tool actually toggles the checkboxes, so it will check any conversation that is unchecked and vice versa. Read More

Identify The Extension Of An Unknown/Extensionless File With FiletypeID

Sometimes, we come across files that are without a file extension. In such cases, other than hit-and-trial (trying to open the file with different random software), there is no other way to identify the programs that can be used to open the file. The method can prove to be very time-consuming and inefficient, of course, as you'd always be guessing where to start. The logical method would be to identify the extension of the file. Once that is done, even if you're unfamiliar with the extension, you can always look it up on the web to find compatible programs. FiletypeID is an open source application for Windows that identifies the extensions of such files, and provides you with possible matches listed according to their match percentage. Even though the program does not provide you with one definite answer all the time, it still narrows down your search and saves a lot of time in locating the correct program. Read More

Desktop Plagiarism Checker: Check For Duplicate Content In Write-Ups

Plagiarism is the act of taking someone else’s work and presenting it as your own, without crediting the original author. According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, Plagiarism is “to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (another's production) without crediting the source." Even though it is considered a very big offence in literary circles, people usually don’t give a second thought to it when copying someone else’s work. It is a common habit among students to copy something off the internet, and use it in their own article without giving references. Desktop Plagiarism Checker is an application that lets you check for duplicate text, and see the percentage of content copied from the internet.
