How to delete a video from YouTube?

Thomas wants to get the best YouTube channel on the Internet. He uploads new videos frequently, and always enjoys watching his own productions.

He uses a cool application to create his videos, and he can upload the videos directly from the application to his YouTube channel. He normally looks through his videos several times before uploading, but sometimes errors get in any way. And that is just what has happened to Thomas.

He looked through his most recent YouTube video and suddenly discovered several typos and a few other things he didn’t like. The problem now is that he cannot edit the video itself on YouTube, and even worse, he doesn’t find a way to delete the video. He tries to find a way to edit the video and delete it but doesn’t succeed (at once).

Thomas wants to stream 9Now abroad!

Thomas wants to stream the latest episode of Doctor Doctor on 9Now while in Austria. But, he gets an error message? What can Thomas do to watch 9Now from abroad?

Thomas likes sitting with his laptop on his lap (isn’t that why they call it a laptop?) to watch TV series and live streams of all his favorite sports. One of his favorite shows is Doctor Doctor, and he normally streams this show on the 9Now website. The only problem is that he can only stream it when in Australia, as whenever he tries to stream 9Now outside Australia, he gets the following error message.

Sorry, 9Now is only available in Australia

This frustrates him, and he wants to find a way in which he can stream 9Now, also when outside Australia. So, what can he do? There are lots of other 9Now shows he might be interested in streaming as well, but neither of them can be streamed as long as he doesn’t find a solution.

Thomas looks for a way to stream 9Now abroad

Thomas has been reading articles here and there, and the most common solution described is using a so-called VPN service. Thomas has a VPN subscription to the VPN provider HideMyAss, so he gives it a try, but it doesn’t work. Even though he gets an actual Australia IP address by connecting to a server in Australia, he still sees the same error message.

But, he has read on another site that this is quite common and that most VPN providers are blocked by 9Now. There is, however, an exception, and that is the VPN provider ExpressVPN.

He is a bit anxious about spending money on yet another VPN subscription, but since they have a 30-day full refund policy, he decides to give it a try anyway.

Thomas tries another VPN service.

Thomas visits the ExpressVPN website, signs up for their services, and downloads their VPN application to his computer.

He signs up for the 12-month package (and he gets 3 more months as a bonus for free). This is a great deal, and if it actually works, he will be happy he signed up for this package. If it doesn’t work, he will simply ask for a full refund.

He opens the ExpressVPN application and decides to connect to a server in Syndey, Australia.

Once the connection has been made, he restarts his browser, and he visits the 9Now website again. He is a bit nervous, hoping that it will actually work, but at the same time fearing that it won’t.

He visits the 9Now website, selects the most recent episode of Doctor Doctor and clicks his mouse. He waits for a few seconds, and suddenly a commercial shows up, and a few seconds later, the show starts. It worked! Thomas is happy, and he runs to grab some popcorn before continuing to stream his favorite 9Now show abroad.

Can you imagine how happy Thomas is that this worked? Due to his enthusiasm, Thomas also installed the ExpressVPN application on his Android phone to see if it worked there as well. And yes, it did! He had to download the 9Now application (.apk-file) manually, but once that was done, it all worked smoothly.

To make it even better, Thomas tried to watch Tenplay (another Australian channel with great TV shows online) using the same connection, and he couldn’t hold back his smile as this worked as well.

Hopefully, the example of Thomas will help you stream 9Now outside Australia as well. Should you have comments or questions, write them down and Thomas will do his best to help!

Windows is upside-down – What can Thomas do?

Thomas was working with a little explainer video when Windows suddenly turned into something that he calls “upside-down” mode. Everything went upside down, and the menu bar suddenly was on the top of the screen.

Thomas has been through a lot, but this was incredibly annoying. Not long ago Thomas had to fix it when Windows turn black and white, and now this… Maybe he should starting using a Mac instead, or Ubuntu? No, that cannot happen, as Thomas is too much of a Windows guy. But, this was really annoying, and Thomas had to fix the upside-down mode quickly because he was unable to do anything at the moment.

Take a look at the screenshot above. Thomas was sitting there and working on a video explainer, and suddenly his screen moved everything and he had to keep his head in 90 degrees to the right to read anything. Later he discovered that it could just as well have moved in the other direction, or totally upside down, but he didn’t care, all Thomas needed was to find a solution.

How did Thomas make the upside-down mode in Windows disappear?

It wasn’t much that needed to be done to fix the problem. In fact, all he needed to do was to press three buttons at the same time, and the problem was fixed. So, what did Thomas press?

The solution to the problem was to press the following buttons on the keyboard:

Control (CTRL) + ALT + UP (arrow key)

As Thomas pressed these three buttons at the same time, Windows at once jumped back to normal mode, and he could keep on working. For fun, Thomas tried clicking the same combination with the different arrow directions afterward and doing so, Thomas was able to make Windows turn right, turn left, and of course, upside down. But, he quickly returned to the normal Windows mode afterward!

Did the solution Thomas found help you as well? He certainly hopes so!

Windows turned black and white? How to get the colors back?

Thomas was writing an article when an incredible thing happened. He was just about to copy and paste a text when Windows suddenly went into a black and white mode. Thomas has no clue how it happened, and he has no clue how to fix the problem either.

Windows suddenly turned black and white. What can Thomas do to make the colors return?

Thomas had to look around the Internet to find a solution, and luckily he didn’t have to search for a very long time in order to find a solution to his problem. There is something about black and white pictures that make them look nice. But, Thomas was very annoyed when Windows went black and white, so he wanted to fix the problem at once.

The solution to his problem was a very easy one. You can take a look at the short YouTube video beneath to see the solution, or just keep reading the article beneath the video.

How Thomas got the Windows colors back?

To get the colors back to Windows, Thomas had to do a very simple thing. You probably know that the copy shortcut in Windows is Control-C. And, if you want to switch back and forth between color-mode and black/white-mode in Windows, you need to press Control-WindowsButton-C. So, they are very close to one another, but they have a very different function.

Get Windows colors back = Control+WindowsButton+C

Are you happy? Thomas is really happy the colors have returned, and he can gladly keep up writing his planned article.

How to get rid of Telegram notifications on Android?

Thomas is using Telegram frequently to follow different chats about cryptocurrencies. He doesn’t like Telegram, and he would prefer Discord to Telegram, but since some groups only exist on Telegram, he is still forced to use it.

For a long time Thomas lived in peace with the Telegram application on his Android device, but then something happened. Suddenly Telegram started bombing his device with notifications about all sorts of activities happening in the different Telegram groups. This was way too much for him, so he opened the Telegram application, entered settings, and tried to turn off all sorts of notifications available. It helped here and there, but he still didn’t manage to get rid of all notifications.

How did Thomas get rid of Telegram notifications on his Android device?

In the end, Thomas had to take a final step and it was not to uninstall the Telegram application (even though he would very much like to do so). He had to enter the “Settings” on his Android device. There he looked for “Installed apps,” and he found Telegram on the list. He then had to look for something that dealt with notifications. He selected this option and turned off all notifications (meaning that Telegram has no permission to give notifications at all).

Since Thomas disabled all Telegram notifications he is finally at peace. He is no longer disturbed by annoying Telegram LED notifications, short beeps, or similar stuff. Whenever he is interested in reading conversations in a certain chat or group, he opens the Telegram app. He then checks out whatever he is interested in, but except for that, he stays far away from Telegram.

Thomas is very happy about the fact that he has turned off the Telegram notifications. He also hopes that these instructions will help you out. If they have, please give him a thumbs up, share the article, or follow his blog for further updates in the future!

 

Thomas wants to change his secondary Hotmail address

Thomas sat down in front of his computer. He wanted to check some of his email addresses, and it all went smoothly until he discovered that one of his addresses doesn’t work anymore. The entire website has been deleted, and the owners say it will never again work. That is quite a disaster, especially considering how Thomas is using this as a “security” email for several activities, including his Hotmail account.

Thomas is wondering what he should do. Since has can no longer access his secondary email, he cannot change the password of his Hotmail account, and he isn’t really able to make any serious changes.

What does Thomas do to change his secondary Hotmail address?

Thomas visits Hotmail.com and logs into his email account. Then he clicks his own image and goes to “View Account”. He is then sent on to a Microsoft website where he can watch and edit information related to his account.

He now presses “Update Security Info.”

update security info

There he has to add his login credentials again. After this, he is able to decide if he wants to add a new Secondary email or if he wants to add a mobile phone number as his back up. Here he is able to change his secondary email address, even if he cannot open and access his current secondary email address.

As Thomas finishes the process, he is told that it will take one month for this process to happen. That is to make sure that nobody can abuse it to gain access to someone else’s email address. He is told about the change in a new email, and he gets a warning the next time he logs onto Hotmail.

Now all Thomas has to do is wait for one month, and his Hotmail account will be registered with a new secondary email address.

Thomas wants to watch Hulu abroad

Thomas has a valid Hulu subscription, but he cannot watch it during his summer holiday in France. Now he looks for a way to watch Hulu overseas.

Thomas has spent his last days in Nice in France. He has been swimming in the sea, eating delicious food, and spent some hours shopping. He is incredibly tired, but suddenly it comes to his mind, that a new episode of The Handmaid’s Tale has been released on Hulu. He opens up his laptop, connects to the WiFi connection available in the hotel, and visits hulu.com.

He is ready to stream, and he presses the play button. He waits for a few seconds, but after the waiting is over he doesn’t see Offred and Commander Waterford, but this stupid message.

Thomas is unable to watch Hulu in Europe – what’s wrong?

Thomas was really hyped up about the new episode, and now he is sad and sorry. He isn’t the kind of guy who takes a no for an answer, so he starts looking for a solution. Is there a way in which Thomas can make the Hulu website believe that he is located in the USA?

Thomas cracks the Hulu from abroad code

Thomas has heard about VPN providers and IP addresses before, and at first he thought getting an American IP address would solve all his trouble. After all, if Hulu finds out that Thomas has an IP address in the United States, then it should work, shouldn’t it? Well, it doesn’t! He reads about how lots of VPN providers are blocked by Hulu, and only a few are still working. But, which are the ones working?

Thomas has looked around here and thre, and in the end he finds an article which says that ExpressVPN is a VPN provider that has been working constantly for the last years with Hulu. Thomas decides to give it a try. He visits the ExpressVPN website, signs up and downloads the ExpressVPN application. He is very relieved to see that they have a 30-day full refund policy, as he can ask for his money back if it doesn’t work.

The entire process only took a few minutes, and now Thomas connects to a server in the USA with ExpressVPN. He decides to restart his browser after making the VPN connection, and now he visits hulu.com again. He is nervous, because he really wants it to work. But, he has heard of scams and companies trying to steal his money, so he is not entirely sure about whether or not he can trust ExpressVPN.

Thomas tries to watch Hulu again

Will it work this time? Thomas gets to the site for The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu, and he presses the play button. He waits for a few seconds (it seems like forever), and the something happens. What happened? Take a look beneath!

It worked – Thomas can watch Hulu again, even though he is abroad.

Thomas is happy, and he is to busy watching the episode, so he doesn’t have much time to complete this article. But, he hopes the way he solved this problem will help you solve the same problem as well, no matter where you might be in the world.
