Doug Paisley - Starter Home Music Album Review

Gracefully navigating the intersection of folk-rock and country, the gentle-voiced songwriter turns detailed images of domestic tranquility and promise into reflections on disappointment.
For a decade, Canadian singer/songwriter Doug Paisley has turned quiet, specific moments into inquiries on life’s larger struggles. On his 2010 breakthrough, Constant Companion, Paisley used the inevitability of endings to explore understanding oneself, the only possible “constant companion.” For 2014’s Strong Feelings, he mulled death and its uneasy relationship with life, or how their juxtaposition ripples into every wave of existence. And now, on his fourth album, Starter Home, Paisley details the chasm that separates what poet Seamus Heaney described as “getting started” and “getting started again.” These songs examine how the person you are never truly aligns with the person you want to be, especially when you stumble upon a sticking point that’s hard to move past.

Adding Options to the Right Click Menu


One of the serious drawbacks regarding Windows file management tools is that there is no option to copy a file or folder directly from the right click context menu. Neither is there an option to move a file or folder from the right click context menu.

You have to copy / cut a file or folder, open the target directory and then paste it. This can be very time consuming, when you are working with dozens of documents, images, files and want a quick and easy option to move files across different directories.

What if you can get the following two options in your Windows Context menu?


Right clicking a file and choosing the two entries will open a file copy dialog box, simply choose the target directory and you are done copying or moving the file to the specific directory.

Here are the steps that needs to be done, the process is exactly same for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows7:

Backing up The Current Windows Registry
First perform a full backup of your current Windows registry, this will be required if you want to revert the changes later. To do this, carefully follow the steps mentioned below:

1. Click Start menu and type in regedit in the search box.


2. This will open the Registry Editor Window, click the File menu and choose the Export option as shown below:


3. This will open the Export Registry File dialog window. Enter a name of the registry backup and click Save.


4. Now that you have a backup of the Windows registry, it’s time to add the Copy to Folder and Move to Folder entries.

Adding the Copy to Folder and Move to Folder Entries To Windows Registry

1. Open the Registry Editor window, as discussed in the above section.

2. Click the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT dropdown arrow.


3. Scroll down and you will find an entry named AllFilesystemObjects


4. Under AllFilesystemObjects – you will see a sub entry named shellex. Under shellex, you will see two sub entries – Contextmenuhandlers and Propertysheethandlers.

Double click the Contextmenuhandlers entry to expand it.


5. Right click on the Contextmenuhandlers entry and select New > Key as shown below:


6. This will create a new entry, name it the following (don’t forget the brackets)

{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

Here is how it’s going to look after you have entered the above name to the entry:


7. After this, hit the Enter key and the Copy to Folder entry will be added to Windows right click context menu. To test it, right click a file and you will see the new options.


8. Now, it’s time to add the Move to Folder entry in Windows registry. Switch back to the Registry editor window and right click ContextMenuHandlers key, as shown below:


9. This will create a new entry, name it the following (don’t forget the brackets)

{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

Here is how it’s going to look after you have entered the above name to the entry:


10. Now hit the Enter key from keyboard and it’s done. The Move to Folder entry has been successfully added to the Windows registry.

To test it, right click any file on Windows Explorer and you will see two new options – Copy to Folder and Move to Folder.


Removing the Options Later

Later, you might want to remove the two options from Windows right click menu. There are two ways to achieve this:

– Double click the registry file backed up earlier. This will restore the earlier settings to Windows registry and thus the options will be automatically removed.
– Otherwise, you can open the Windows registry editor and navigate to the corresponding keys one by one. Right click each key and click Delete.


If you have a registry backup, it’s advised to continue with the first step. If not, you can manually delete the keys as well.

It’s much easier to move or copy files to different Windows folders using the right click options. Give it a try!

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Dell XPS 13 (2019) vs Dell XPS 13 (2018)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.
