Good news to Instagrammers and Filter lovers because in the recent update to Instagram, you can now save your currently editing picture(Just incase you need to go back to your phone homescreen). Yea i know it's kinda complicated with that explanation but here's a diluted version.


You know the situation: you just spent 15 minutes perfecting the shadows and highlights on your next Instagram post, only to realize you’re late for work and need to rush. Now the Instagram app will prompt you to either discard or save your photo draft if you leave the editing screen.

Although some users have been testing this since July under the A/B Test.

Now that it's officially out it appears people seem to embrace it.


So here's how to do it below...


Once you start creating a post, you can save it as a draft and share it later:
  1. Tap  at the bottom of the screen, then take or upload a photo or video
  2. Add effects, filters, a caption or your location
  3. Go back to the filtering and editing step, then tap the back arrow in the top left
  4. Select Save Draft at the bottom of the screen
Note: If you don't edit the post, tag people or add a caption or location, you won't be able to save the post as a draft.
To see posts you've saved as a draft, tap  and then tap Library. Posts will appear at the bottom of the screen below Drafts.


Have fun!

Don't want to wait for Windows to push you a notification before downloading/upgrading to the New Windows 10 ? Then follow the direction below to skip the wait.

For about 3 weeks now, i've been seeing the icon "Get Windows 10" in my taskbar but i refused to take action because i am sometimes not the type of person that tries new softwares as soon as they arrive because you learn from the past. 

Remember when Apple iOS 8 came out ? everybody jumped on it few days later security bug was detected and people had to update again to 8.0.2 and so on till we got stuck to 8.4 which is the most recent update released June 30 - 2015. 

Anyways that's another story i'm not a storyteller, today i want to show you how i upgraded my Windows 8.1 to 10 within an hour of downloading from Microsoft directly.

Like i said earlier, I saw the notification to download the new windows 10 but unknowing to me it's just a step one of perhaps 10 steps before you finally get the upgrade.

After clicking on the Get Windows 10, Window popped up telling me to reserve my space, so i did and nothing happend, Then i clicked on it again i was told to "Chill" and that my Windows 10 is on the way(could take days or weeks).

I'm impatient so i found on CNET how to skip the waiting process. Here are the steps below.

STEP 1: Goto Microsoft Official Website by clicking here
STEP 2: Choose which bit your system runs with i.e 64bit or 32bit.
STEP 3: Click Download
STEP 4: Open the installer you just downloaded which is named MediaCreationToolx64 or MediaCreationToolx32 (depending on the bit you're installing)
STEP 5: Select the first option which instructs you to Upgrade This PC and the image below should be what you're seeing...



STEP 6: Go get yourself some coffee or better still if your PC is rugged you can continue doing your work while windows does its thing in the background.

Note: Try not to do much because Windows will always reboot at some point and if you're in the middle of something, Sorry might be the case.

Download Size for Windows 10 is 2699MB (2.7GB approx)

STEP 7: Welcome On Board! The Windows 10 Elites!


First of all i came across a trouble on this and i found the solution so i wanna share it to those who dunno the logic.


Short Story:
