It was very easy as I  am going to describe it in below steps:

1 – Download Fastrack ReFlex App from Google Play Store and open it.

2 – This Fastrack ReFlex App will ask you to turn on Bluetooth on the Mobile.
OK did. But now comes the problem!!!
Problem:Why Fastrack ReFlex App is not able to find Fastrack ReFlex Watch.
-Fixed it on step 3.

3 – Turn on GPS location and then click on refresh button to find this Fastrack ReFlex Watch and here you go.

Right now if you see I have slower down the frequency of my blogging cause I am busy doing my full time work. So don’t mind missing image guidelines.

If I found time I will put them for sure 🙂

Bye… Friends

Windows 10 | System Volume reduces by itself | Resolved

Recently came across very irritating issue with Windows 10, that volume of system’s audio reduces itself automatically.

I went above and beyond to look for solutions, I tried and learnt new stuff about sound features in Windows 10 and root cause of the problem.

First I would like to discuss what did not work for me and then in steps I will recommend  steps you should first try what failed to resolve my issue because but may work for yoy, I don’t want you to do major changes directly, as your Audio drivers may differ from what was there in my case.

Steps to be followed :

1: Open Sound by right clicking upon the sound icon on the extreme right side of taskbar. In there on top click on communication and select radio button “Do Nothing”. Click OK. Now check how the sound is working. If working great otherwise next step.

2: Go to “Programs and Features” ( Just type programs and features in CORTANA) click on it. Now look for the installed Audio program. It should be “Realtek High Definition Audio ” mostly issue reported to this program. Now go to device manager and uninstall any related Audio driver present in there. Restart the computer and now check, it should be working, now restart the system it may go bad again and sound will start dropping again. If it starts to again then try next step.

3: Download WUShowHide(Windows update show hide) from Microsoft’s website   the “Show or hide updates” troubleshooter package now. Now go to device manager and look for Sound/Audio device, find the one which says Realtek (in most of the cases or Conexent. Now open downloaded WUShowHide and now click on “Next” then “Hide” then in the list select the one which matches the name of Audio driver. In some case you may have multiple entries from same vendor so you have to put some extra care to select the right one ( right one has a letters like Audio or Sound or media), just do it click on Next and after it does completely finishes doing it’s stuff close it. Now go back to device manager and uninstall the Audio drivers again restart the computer. It should be working now. Try restarting again and strongly think it should resolve the problem. But just in case not next step the final one but  will recommend only try if above steps are failed.

4: Go to device manager, then go to problem driver Sound and audio controllerright click on it and select update driver, here select second option to manually install the drivers, select the option to pick up the drivers from list of devices, the in listed options select vendor as Microsoft and on right hand side select you have to look for High Definition Audio device, there may be two or more of this driver with same name recommend to try second one which worked for me.

So isssue is resolved.

Let’s discuss what causes this problem, some of very recent Windows automatic updates have caused certain changes that some of the device drivers, vendors of this devices in device manager were not really ready to adopt this sudden change, hence we either need to wait for new driver version or use Microsoft Generic Driver.

How to activate the old Firebug plugin on Firefox

What happened to the Firebug we know and love?

Firebug isn’t being developed or maintained any longer because it can’t work with e10s (multi-process browsers) .Old version is much better and easy than current version. If you need your old firebug back, and you hate firefox dev tools, then you are in the right place. The recent update of firebug, it is integrated with inspector and the normal functions which make firebug console better than chrome are gone.

You can install the old version from this link:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firebug/versions/2.0.17

Start Menu, taskbar and cortana not working | Microsoft Windows 10

Hello Friends,

I am here back again, with resolution to another of the Windows 10 application problem which is unresponsive Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu.

Unresponsive Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu includes all issues with Windows store such as :

Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu is not opening.
Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu is opening and closing itself in a flash of second.
3 You are able to open Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu but clicking on download is not downloading anything or ending up with an error.

So the fix for all this Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu issues are common Powershell commands:

Hold down ‘Windows key‘ on keyboard and then press ‘Q‘ key on keyboard, now type in ‘powershell‘, now right click on that and select ‘Run as Administrator’.

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}

Now restart the computer and use Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu now it should be working, if not then try below command opening ‘powershell’ just like we did earlier:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

This command takes around 10 to 20 minutes wait for it to complete and then restart.

Now your Window’s Taskbar, CORTANA and Start menu must be working again.

If still not working then I will recommend you should back up your files and after that go to login screen on right hand side bottom you must be having power button icon, right click on that it will give you option to restart, there hold the shift key on keyboard and click on restart. It will take you to Windows recovery environment also known as WinRE, there select troubleshoot and check if you see option ‘Reset’ if it is not there then select advance option and check there click on it and do the reset of your computer operating system.

My PC Screen kept on refreshing ? | Microsoft Windows – Resolved

Hello friends,

I am back here again with another resolution to one funny issue I came accross.

Win 10 refreshes itself automatically !

That is after logging into my windows account my windows screen kept on refreshing by itself. It can’t let me do any thing I tried multiple steps such as:

1 Checking F5  key on the keyboard which is shortcut key for refreshing Windows, it was absolutely fine and then I  tried that keyboard with different computer and it worked fine so isolated keyboard was not the problem.

2 Then assuming that could be issue with keyboard’s driver some how manage to get into device manager and tried to disable the keyboard, but it also failed to fix the problem instead now the refresh rate was so high that could not do any thing on computer.

3) Right click on Windows icon and then click on device manager, expend Display Adapter, underneath it you will find your graphic card listed, disable it and now check.
Note: If it is working fine then it could be issue with Graphic card driver or driver itself. Hence reinstall the driver and check. If still not working then seems like faulty graphic card. To ensure it you can follow step 4 now.

4) Took system into Windows recovery everything was working well in here. ( To take it to Windows recovery click on Windows icon and then Shutdown icon, it will give you options like Shutdown, Restart etc.. Just hold the shift key on keyboard and click on Restart.).

So finally made my mind to reset the computer and check if help resolve my problem.

Did it and issue fixed. Source if the problem is still unknown, if anyone knows better fix and the cause kindly let me know.
