Hide Data Within A Text File WITHOUT using any Software

Have you ever find yourself with too many passwords to remember and no idea where to keep them so that only you can find the password list? Yes, you can use software like Truecrypt, My LockBox and Wise Folder Hider for such purpose, but all these programs requires installation on your PC which is obviously visible to prying eyes.

In today's tutorial I’m going to show you a handy trick to hide textual data within a simple text file without requiring any third-party utility.

1. Click on the Start orb and in the search bar type"cmd" (without quotes). Hit [Enter] to open command prompt. (XP users: click Start, then Run and type "cmd" and hit enter).

2. Navigate to any destination [In our case : C:\Test].

3. Now type the following command in the console :

       notepad PublicFile.txt:password.txt            

Note: You can change PublicFile.txt and password.txt to any other name of your choice. The key point is that there can’t be any spaces between the first filename and the colon.

4. Hit [Enter] and you will be prompted to create a new file.

5. Click "Yes" and enter whatever data you want to hide.

6. Save the file and close Notepad.

7. Visit the location where you have saved the file. There you will see your non-hidden file. Notice that the main file name is “PublicFile.txt” and there are no clues from the exterior that it contains a hidden file within it.

You can even open up the file by double-clicking on it, and add whatever data you want to make the file look normal.

8. You can also hide more than one text file in the same file. Simply type the command in Step 3 but with a different name after the colon. For example :

       notepad PublicFile.txt:secret.txt        

       notepad PublicFile.txt:confidential.txt    

None of these hidden files will affect the other, or change the main file.

To view hidden data, open command prompt and navigate to the folder where the text file is located. Now type  :

       notepad PublicFile.txt:password.txt         

change the PublicFile.txt and Secret.txt with the names that you used in Step 3 and in Step 8.

If you want to delete all the hidden files from the non-hidden file, you first need to download a small command line application called Streams.exe. Once installed, type the following command in the command window :

       streams.exe -d PublicFile.txt               

where PublicFile.txt is the name of your non-hidden file.

Enable Facebook's Redesigned News Feed NOW

A few months ago, Facebook unveiled a redesigned news feed to make its often overwhelming stream of updates feel less cluttered. The first thing you will notice about the revamped News Feed is how aesthetically pleasing it is. This UI update, however, is more than just skin deep -- underneath that design is a whole bucket of new features that are just as appealing as the visuals. The feeds now incorporates bigger images, more customization and a consistent experience on mobile and desktop versions.

Sadly Facebook is taking a painstakingly slow approach to releasing this remarkably overhauled version of the feeds, as previous updates by the social network giant [such as Timeline and Ticker Feed ] have met with a mixed reception upon release from its users..

However, if you wish to enable this new design right now, simply head over to the Facebook's news feed page, scroll down till the end and click on the "Try the new look" button.
