How do I disable ads in my Gmail account?

Well, that’s one thing that haunted me for quite sometime. As usual, I had to explore the ‘n’ number of things offered on Gmail.

One great thing about Google is – problems come with a package of solutions.

And for this one here, I found we have 2 ways to get rid of ads

Solution 1

  • Login to Gmail account.
  • Select the gear icon (Settings) –> Configure Inbox.


  • Remove selection for the ‘Promotion’ tab.


  • This should minimize the frequency of overwhelming ads to a couple of them to your inbox.

Solution 2

  • Login to Gmail account.
  • Click My Account.


  • On the My Account window, select Ads Settings, under Personal Info and Privacy settings.


  • On Personal Info and Privacy Settings page, select Manage Ads settings.


  • Click to Turn Off the Ad bases on your interests option.


  • Select Switch OFF on the resultant screen.
  • Next, click I’m done.

Ideally, if you have done everything right till now, I mean if you have followed the steps, your screen will appear like this


Hurray! You are good to go!

How do I rotate my desktop screen

Yeah, that’s quite irking when you see the desktop other than the original position.

Okay, let’s try this – press Ctrl+Alt and then press the arrow key. Usually  would do.

Good luck!

Set a background for each drive

Okay! now you wanna set an individual background to see colorful and attractive drives each time you go for a file on your system (Works only with Windows XP)

It’s quite a bit interesting to amaze your friends and have some snacks, while they think of how you do all this.

The actual part of it now

  • Open ‘Notepad‘ application.
  • Copy the text below and paste it on the notepad.



  • You can save this notepad with whatever name you want to.
  • Paste a copy of it (notepad file) on each drive you wanna set a background image for (As many drives as you have but not on desktop or so called ‘C:\’ 😉
  • Open the notepad and now, let’s do a li’l bit of tweaking. Do not try to get into what actually this code is saying to us. Our purpose is to only tweak the IconArea_Imageline of it.
    • I had images on my F drive so the line showed up as (IconArea_Image=F:\pictures\myfavimages\Ilikethis.jpg).
  • Now, save this notepad as ‘desktop.ini‘.
  • IF you want, you can hide the file: Right-click –> Properties –> Select Hidden check box.
  • Enter the location /path of folder containing your favorite image. Make sure you selected the image.

And there you go!!!

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
