Tell Me Something I Don't Know

Thread title shamelessly stolen from Chris Matthews.

Tell us a helpful hint or life hack that would make things a little easier for your readers.

Here's mine:

If you are sick of seeing those irritating popups on YouTube videos, go to the settings icon along the bottom. It looks like a little gear with cogs. Click once and turn off "Annotations" by clicking on the left of the slide bar. That brings the circle to the left and most of those popups no longer appear.

If someone could tell us how to make that a permanent setting, I would be grateful.


Your helpful hint does not have to be about the internet. It could be something as simple as dumping a cupful of vinegar in the kitchen drain once a week to cut down on mold and odors (that one was free).

1. Take the time to customize all your settings in Windows

https://www.windowscentral.com/how-customize-your-windows-10-experience

That's just one site of many, and of course you can do the same for Windows 7 and XP and Mac, etc. It will save you much time and aggravation and make things more pleasant

3. Never scrub your shower again

Esp. if you live in humid climates where mold grows fast

Use a spray bottle of pure white vinegar to spray the sides/bottom of the shower when you are leaving the bathroom. All mold and stains disappear and with 2x weekly use, have not returned.
really effective on those "plastic" type shower stalls.
