How to Browse Internet not leaving a Trace?

Sometimes you need it…
Sometimes you realize you had to use it only after the case…
And it is not all about watching porn or checking the live erotic cameras…

Yes, I am referring to the so-called private browsing, or incognito mode.

To perform efficiently, web browsers learn your surfing habits, storing information on your hard drive, such as browsing history, images, videos, and text within cache. In contrast, the browser switched to the privacy mode, does not store such information for the selected browsing sessions. Privacy mode will also disable the storage of data in cookies and Flash cookies.

The simplest and fastest way to launch a window in private browsing mode, use these keyboard shortcuts for different browsers:
  • Chrome and Opera: Ctrl+Shift+N
  • Firefox, Internet Explorer: Ctrl+Shift+P
Here are the alternative ways to enable private browsing:

In Chrome, click on Chrome's main menu button, represented by three horizontal lines and circled in the example above. When the drop-down menu appears, select the choice labeled New incognito window.

* In Internet Explorer 10 click on the Gear icon, also known as the Action or Tools menu, located in the upper right hand corner of your browser window. When the drop-down menu appears, hover your cursor over the Safety option. A sub-menu should now appear, as shown in the example above. Click on the option labeled InPrivate Browsing.

* In Firefox, click on Tools in your Firefox menu, located at the top of your browser window. When the drop-down menu appears, scroll down and click on the Start Private Browsing choice.

* In Opera, click on Menu, located in the upper left hand corner of your browser window. When the drop-down menu appears, click on the option labeled Tabs and Windows.

* In Safari, click on the Gear icon, also known as the Action Menu, located in the upper right hand corner of your browser window. When the drop-down menu appears, select the option labeled Private Browsing...

What to do if USB Flash Drive does not let you transfer files larger than 4GB?

If your brand new USB drive does not allow you to copy big files, the problem might not be in faulty unit, but in the preset formatting. Your flash drive might have the FAT-32 format, which is known by imposed file size limitations, not permitting you to transfer files larger than 4GB.

In order to remove such limitation, you will have to format your flash drive into the NTFS format.

Note that formatting will essentially erase all the existing files, located on your drive, so it is recommended to copy all the useful information before approaching the following procedure.

In order to format your USB thumb drive to NTFS, please follow the simple steps:
* Right click on “My Computer” and select “Manage”.
* Open the “Device Manager” and find the “USB drive” under the tab “Disk Drives”
* Right click the drive and select Properties.
* Choose “Policies” tab and select “Optimize for performance" option. Click OK.
* Open “My Computer”, Select “Format” on the flash drive.
* Choose “NTFS” in the “File System” dropdown menu.
* Wait for the format completion.

Note, that in some cases, you may need to perform the same operation - format the USB drive - for compatibility issues. All 64GB flash drive/removable drives use an exFAT file system, successor to FAT32 in the FAT family of file systems. However, some cameras and other electronic devices may NOT be compatible with the exFAT file system. Also, devices formatted using exFAT can NOT be read by any version of Windows prior to Windows XP.
