Oracle VM Virtual Box, NO 64 Bit option

Oracle VM Virtual Box 5.2.20 r125813 (Qt5.6.2)

So… you’ve installed Oracle VM Virtual Box & you’re trying to install a
64 bit version of your selected OS.

However you have stumbled into a road block, you can’t find any 64 bit versions on the list.

Now I fixed this issue with the following steps:

  1. Go to into Programs and Features, on Windows 10 Pro Version 1809 (Build 17763.107);
  2. Then click on Turn Windows features on or off;
  3. Directly Under TFTP Client there is an option for Virtual Machine Platform, turn this OFF. It relates to Hyper-V and will kill any chance of getting what you want to do; and
  4. Make sure your UEFI/BIOS has Virtualization Enabled.

Once you have that done Reboot… Open Oracle VM Virtual Box and you should have your 64 bit options in the list.

Remove Quick Access, from File Explorer…

Remove Quick Access, from File Explorer in Windows 10 & Server 2016

Click the link above to be forwarded to article.

Follow every step as indicated, this works. I’m using Windows 10 Build 17744.1003. Followed every step and works like a charm, no more Quick Access showing in File Explorer.

However if you update to Build 17754.1 the update breaks this access & trying to implement the steps, followed from start to finish does not work.




HandBrake: Automatic File Naming

Here’s how you Prevent handbrake from appending numbers to file names …

So you’re using HandBrake to transcode some video files, but you’re wanting to get rid of that annoying -1 or -2 it puts on the end of the file.

Simple easy fix.

  • Open HandBrake;
  • go to Tools…;
  • Preferences…; and
  • Output files.

Where it has Automatic File Naming. Go to where it says File Format {Source}-{title}.
Now remove -{title}.

Restart HandBrake and Voila! You have Automatic File Naming without the title number -1 or -2, alas Preventing handbrake from appending numbers to file names.

‘was much more than just a pie’

I agree with this article 100% in the face of it, appears some people are told to get over it. Much like myself who is a gay man that suffers from anxiety & depression disorder. Try telling someone that just broke their arm to get over it!  You’ll be the one with a broken arm & then you’ll have to get over that!

How to … Set “Google Chrome” as my default web browser in Windows 10!

Ok folks, so here I am trying to set Google Chrome, as my default web browser for Windows 10.

However Windows 10 wants you to go through Settings… Default apps… Web Browser

When you Select Google Chrome and then restart Google Chrome it is not the default web browser.

  • Then click ok and you’re done!
