Windows cannot find “Computer Management.lnk”

I guess I drag ‘n’ drop Computer Management from Control Panel/Administrative Tools to desktop and then (later) deleted the icon from Desktop.

Now, when I go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools icon Computer Management is missing and also when I want to start Computer Management by right clicking on Computer in start menu and selecting Mange (like on a picture below):

Manage Computer

I get the following error message: Windows cannot find ‘C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Start\Programs\Administrative Tools\Computer Management.lnk’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Computer Management Link missing

The solution to this problem is to simply restore the missing link. To do so follow the following four steps:

1. Right click on blank area of Desktop and choose New -> Shortcut.
2. Type the following location in: %windir%\system32\compmgmt.msc /S and press Enter
3. Type a name for this article such as Computer Management. Click Finish.
4. Copy this shortcut and paste to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools folder.

Now the icon should be restored to Administrative Tools and you can access it by clicking Manage on Computer in Start Menu.

Text in Chrome looks blurry/fuzzy/pixelated

After recent update of Chrome 37 (at the end of August start of September 2014) the text in my favorite browser became not so clear as it was just before the update.

Here’s a sample:
chrome text rendering problems

You can notice that text on both buttons is not quite readable, as well as the text below has also some extra pixels…

The problem is apparently with DirectWrite rendering system. Launch Chrome and enter chrome://flags into the browser’s address bar. This will enable access to a many hidden and experimental features, so be really careful. Locate Enable DirectWrite. You can quickly find it using Chrome’s on-page search feature (Control-F or F3). Choose Enable and relaunch the browser.

UPDATE: You can also enter this into browser’s address bar chrome://flags/#disable-direct-write since this will directly take you to DirectWrite Option.

After doing it your screen should look like this:

Here are the same picture now:

Now text rendering is much better.

I hope this helped you out!

How to backup data on second HDD using Google Drive

If you’re using Google Drive it’s default path is c:\User\USER_NAME\Google Drive\ but often my partition on c: is quite small since I only use it for operating system and I store all my data on other drives. So I’d like Google Drive to backup my data on other drive and still allow me to access it in my user’s folder. The idea is to create a symbolic link so that C:\User\USER_NAME\Google Drive\ links to e:\Backup in my case (or some other path in your case).

First close (quit) the Google Drive application.

1. Now you need to go and remove directory and all it’s files from C:\User\USER_NAME\Google Drive\ (or simply rename the folder or copy all files to your 2nd backup folder on other drive).

2. Than you need to run CMD as Administrator – see the picture below how:

Run CMD as Administrator

3. Then you need to make Smbolic link. But not a shortcut link than directory redirect link, entering mklink /D “c:\Users\USER_NAME\Google Drive” e:\Backup
If your backup path contains spaces put it in double quotes too like the fist path.

Start the Google Drive and Snyc your data.

That’s it!


How to change language in Google Drive application to English

Google Drive is great cloud service where you can store online or backup all your important files that you can later access wherever you are just by logging into your Gmail (Google) account and going to http://drive.google.com. You can drag and drop files to your browser while on that url or you can install their application that will sync a selected folder to the cloud. Problem is I can’t change the language on my Google Drive since there is nowhere to do so. I prefer that my Windows and all applications are in English. I have searched the Google Drive’s settings but seen nowhere to change settings but than I searched a bit more and I found rather simple solution.

Before you start you should close Google Drive.
Then you need to go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced -> Environment Variables.
Then on user variables press New button for Variable name enter LANG and for value enter en_US.
Restart the Google Drive and it should work now in English.

Easy as a pie!
