Millions of bloggers prefer the Blogger platform for starting their first blog. In this post, we will see some technical reasons why Google will not shut down Blogger.

In the past, Google has dropped many of its products. It closed Google Plus, Hangouts, and much more. Because of this, many bloggers have this doubt: Will Google shut down Blogger?

How To Take Screenshot, Edit, and Share on Chrome For Android

Google Chrome for Android brings a new way of capturing screenshots and share content online. When you read news and blogs, you may like to share the article on social media. What you will be looking for is the share button on the article. You may also have used the share option provided by your browser. In this post, we will discuss how to take a screenshot, edit and share on Chrome for Android.

In all the versions of Android, the share menu takes time to load and sometimes it won't show up. Google has noticed the issue faced by users and brought a new idea in sharing content. YouTube and Google News also introduced custom share tools.

In the latest version of Chrome on Android, you can see that the browser itself comes up with a custom sheet in sharing content.

Chrome for Android thinks differently by providing more tools for sharing content. You can see the additional tools like screenshot capture copy link, QR code creator & scanner, and print.

Your Android phone has a built-in feature for taking a screenshot. It can be slow and it takes screenshots of the entire screen including the status bar. Usually, the status bar shows the network signal, battery percentage, time, and more depending upon the type of apps usage. You can also notice the virtual navigation buttons on the screenshots.

On the other hand, Chrome takes a screenshot of the page you're viewing. The screenshot process works inside the Chrome app. Chrome captures an app-level screenshot that can't have the status bar and navigation buttons in the screenshot.

Once you take a screenshot on the Chrome app, you can proceed to edit the image inside Chrome before sharing.

How To Raise Your Hand in Zoom on PC, Mobile, and Web

Zoom is the virtual hotspot for friends, family, and even companies that use the application for communication. When a group of people is attending a meeting, someone would like to express their opinion in their discussion. In this post, we will see how to raise your hand in Zoom politely.

Though we have Microsoft Teams and Skype for business at the front, Zoom is the leading choice for many users across the world.

You can stream high-quality video with clear audio. Using filters in Zoom is an added advantage that is liked by many users.

Zoom provides better video and call quality, quick recording of meetings, and screen sharing. There are still many reasons why Zoom is making its touch with a large number of users.

During Zoom meetings, you can politely raise your hand for asking a question. Once the host accepts your request, he/she will allow you to give your input. After you have finished your discussion, you can lower your hand in the same way.

If the host doesn't want to allow any questions from anyone before completing his speech, he can have the ability to lower your hand. The host will be simply notified when someone raises their hand. Then host can lower the questionnaire's hand from his end in a Zoom meeting.

The larger the meeting goes, there is valid the reason for using this feature. Personally, I feel that the raise hand feature in Zoom helps the team members to participate actively in a productive discussion.

The raise hand feature is very helpful for remote employees, group discussions for job candidates, online ministry discussions, and much more.

How To Fix Daemon Tools Access Denied Error

Daemon Tools is a virtual drive or CD/DVD drive. You can use Daemon Tools to create images of CD/DVD. With the help of this tool, you can create bootable devices on a Pendrive. It is the most popular choice for users. 

The free version is called Daemon Tools lite that allows you to emulate up to 4 drives. On the other hand, the paid versions allow for more drives. This post is focused on how to fix the Daemon Tools access denied error on Windows PC.

Daemon Tools is supported on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 versions. You can install the software on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows computers. This tool is also available for Mac OS.

With the free version, you will get less technical help. The paid versions have a dedicated support team. They can assist you in case of any issues and troubleshooting. There are three paid versions such as Pro, Personal, and Ultra. Each version has its own features and the pricing varies.

If you're trying to mount images and you get an access denied error message, you're not alone. I have experienced a similar issue once. Once you get this error, you cannot mount images anymore. Even if you run Daemon Tools as an administrator, you will still see this error.

I can able to reproduce the issue from my end. After adding the .iso image file in Daemon Tools, I see no issues. Upon double-clicking the mount, I see a pop-up saying, "Access is denied".

The core issue is not from the Daemon Tools. It is due to another software that corrupts the registry on your PC. The issue can be fixed by correcting your registry files.
