Virtuelle Desktops: Wie man mehrere Desktops in Windows 10 verwendet

Sie können diese Funktion nutzen, um Ihren virtuellen Raum zu organisieren, während Sie gleichzeitig an einer Reihe verschiedener Dinge arbeiten.

Virtuelle Desktops sind eine großartige Funktion, vor allem für alle, die nur einen Monitor haben. Wenn Sie aufgrund der Pandemie immer noch von zu Hause aus arbeiten und verschiedene Projekte auf demselben Computer jonglieren, können mehrere Desktops ein Lebensretter sein. (Und die jüngste Version von Windows 11 bietet noch einfachere Möglichkeiten, mehrere virtuelle Desktops einzurichten und zwischen ihnen hin- und herzuschalten, neben anderen neuen Funktionen wie der Unterstützung für Android-Apps.) Unabhängig davon, ob Sie ein langjähriger Windows 10-Benutzer sind oder erst kürzlich auf Windows 10 umgestiegen sind, nachdem der Support für Windows 7 im letzten Jahr eingestellt wurde, führen wir Sie durch die Verwendung mehrerer virtueller Desktops.

Mit der Aufgabenansicht in Windows 10 können Sie schnell und einfach eine unbegrenzte Anzahl von virtuellen Desktops hinzufügen. Sie können die Ansicht Ihres virtuellen Desktops verwalten und Anwendungen auf verschiedene Desktops verschieben, Fenster auf allen Desktops anzeigen oder Seiten auf einem ausgewählten Desktop schließen. Hier erfahren Sie, wie es geht.

Wie man einen Desktop in Windows 10 hinzufügt

Um einen virtuellen Desktop hinzuzufügen, öffnen Sie das neue Fenster Task-Ansicht, indem Sie auf die Schaltfläche Task-Ansicht (zwei sich überlappende Rechtecke) in der Taskleiste klicken oder die Windows-Taste + Tabulator drücken. Klicken Sie in der Task-Ansicht auf Neuer Desktop, um einen virtuellen Desktop hinzuzufügen. Wenn Sie bereits zwei oder mehr Desktops geöffnet haben, wird die Schaltfläche „Desktop hinzufügen“ als graue Kachel mit einem Plus-Symbol angezeigt. Sie können auch schnell einen Desktop hinzufügen, ohne den Aufgabenbereich zu öffnen, indem Sie die Tastenkombination Windows-Taste + Strg + D verwenden.

So wechseln Sie zwischen Desktops in Windows 10

Um zwischen virtuellen Desktops zu wechseln, öffnen Sie die Taskleiste und klicken Sie auf den Desktop, zu dem Sie wechseln möchten. Sie können auch schnell zwischen den Desktops wechseln, ohne die Taskleiste zu öffnen, indem Sie die Tastenkombinationen Windows-Taste + Strg + Pfeil nach links und Windows-Taste + Strg + Pfeil nach rechts verwenden.

Sie können eine unbegrenzte Anzahl von virtuellen Desktops hinzufügen – wir haben bei 368 aufgehört.

Wie man Die Sims 2 auf Windows 10 spielt

Als ich auf Windows 10 umgestiegen bin, war ich so verärgert, dass das Spiel nicht mehr reibungslos lief. Meine Grafiken blinkten rosa oder blau, und ich stürzte jedes Mal ab, wenn ich versuchte, meinen Sim zu einem anderen Grundstück zu bringen. Wenn du das gleiche Problem hast, ist es ganz einfach zu beheben! Ihr müsst nur den 4GB-Patch installieren.

Und wenn das nicht funktioniert, gibt es noch einige andere Dinge, die du ausprobieren kannst (siehe unten). Dieser Artikel enthält ALLES, was ich darüber weiß, wie Sie Ihr Spiel unter Windows 10 zum Laufen bringen.

Verfügbaren Speicher erhöhen

Ein Windows-Update Ende 2017 oder Anfang 2018 führte dazu, dass dieser Fehler bei allen Spielern von Die Sims 2 auftrat. Aber die gute Nachricht ist, dass es nicht schwer zu beheben ist.

Die Sims 2 ist ein altes Spiel, das nur 2 GB deines verfügbaren Speichers verwendet. Sie benötigen einen speziellen Patch, damit das Spiel in Windows 10 auf 4 GB zugreifen kann. Wenn der Patch richtig installiert ist, geht dir beim Spielen nicht der Speicher aus, dein Spiel stürzt nicht ab und deine Grafik blinkt nicht mehr rosa.

Hier ist eine Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitung, die Ihnen hilft, Ihr Spiel ohne Abstürze und blinkende Grafiken wieder zum Laufen zu bringen.

Schritt 1: Überprüfen Sie Ihr Config-Log

Zuerst zeige ich Ihnen, wie Sie sicherstellen können, dass dies die Ursache Ihres Problems ist. Und wenn wir fertig sind, zeige ich Ihnen, wie Sie sicherstellen können, dass es wirklich funktioniert hat.

Öffnen Sie Ihren Dokumentenordner und navigieren Sie zu folgendem Pfad:

Dokumente > EA Spiele > Die Sims 2 Ultimate Collection > Protokolle

HINWEIS: Wenn du die UC nicht hast, ist der Pfad derselbe. Es steht dann nur „Die Sims 2“ anstelle von „The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection“.

Suchen Sie die Protokolldatei, die wie die obige aussieht. Es handelt sich um den Namen Ihres Computers, gefolgt von -config-log.

Öffnen Sie die Datei. Sie sieht dann wie folgt aus:

Achten Sie auf die Zeilen mit der Aufschrift „Speicher“ und „Freier Speicher“. Wenn Ihr Spiel nur 2 GB nutzt, wird hier 2048 statt 4096 angezeigt.

HINWEIS: Ich habe den Patch bereits in meinem Spiel installiert, deshalb zeigt der Speicher in diesem Screenshot 4096 an.

Wenn Ihre Protokolldatei 2048 MB anzeigt, wird das Problem durch die Installation des 4-GB-Patches behoben. Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Jetzt können wir es beheben!

Schritt 2: Laden Sie den 4GB-Patch herunter

Besuchen Sie die NTCORE-Website, um den 4-GB-Patch herunterzuladen.

Entpacken Sie die .exe-Datei auf Ihren Desktop oder an einen anderen Ort Ihrer Wahl. Sie können die Datei nach der Installation des Patches löschen, es ist also nicht wichtig.

Schritt 3: Installieren Sie den Patch

Jetzt müssen Sie aufpassen, denn Sie müssen den Patch richtig installieren, sonst funktioniert er nicht.

Doppelklicken Sie auf die .exe-Datei, nachdem Sie sie heruntergeladen und entpackt haben.

Daraufhin öffnet sich Ihr Datei-Explorer. Navigieren Sie zu folgendem Verzeichnis:

Windows (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Origin Games > The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection > Fun with Pets > SP9 > TSBin

Wenn Sie die Disc-Version des Spiels anstelle der UC haben, navigieren Sie zu diesem Ort:

Windows (C:) > Program Files (x86) > EA Games > The Sims 2 Mansion and Garden Stuff > TSBin

HINWEIS: Wenn Sie Mansion and Garden Stuff nicht haben, navigieren Sie zum TSBin des neuesten Erweiterungspakets, das Sie haben.

Wählen Sie die .exe-Datei Ihres Spiels in diesem Ordner aus und klicken Sie dann auf „Öffnen“. Sie sollten ein Pop-up-Fenster erhalten, das so aussieht:

Klicken Sie auf „OK“ und das Fenster verschwindet.

In Ihrem TSBin-Ordner sollte eine Backup-.exe-Datei erstellt worden sein. Das ist normal, also machen Sie sich keine Gedanken darüber. Dies bedeutet, dass Ihr Spiel erfolgreich gepatcht wurde.

Schritt 4: Überprüfen Sie, ob es funktioniert hat

Laden Sie Ihr Spiel und lassen Sie es mindestens bis zum Auswahlbildschirm für die Nachbarschaft laden. Dadurch wird Ihr Konfigurationsprotokoll aktualisiert.
Schließen Sie Ihr Spiel und kehren Sie zu Ihrem Desktop zurück.
Öffnen Sie erneut das Konfigurationsprotokoll in Ihrem Dokumentenordner (wie in Schritt 1). Es sollte nun 4096 in der Speicherzeile anzeigen.
Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Die Sims 2 läuft jetzt unter Windows 10 und die Tage der Abstürze und der rosa blinkenden Grafiken sind vorbei.

Analisi del Bitcoin Cash: I tori si preparano per una rottura cruciale al rialzo

  • Il prezzo del Bitcoin cash sta lottando per superare la zona di resistenza dei 560 dollari contro il dollaro USA.
  • Il prezzo è ora scambiato ben al di sopra di $520 e della media mobile semplice 55 (4 ore).
  • C’è una linea di tendenza rialzista chiave che si sta formando con il supporto vicino a $535 sul grafico a 4 ore della coppia BCH/USD (dati forniti da Coinbase).
  • È probabile che la coppia inizi una forte impennata se c’è una rottura al di sopra di $560 e $570.

Il prezzo del Bitcoin cash si sta probabilmente preparando per un nuovo aumento sopra i 570$ contro il dollaro USA, mentre il bitcoin sta salendo. BCH/USD potrebbe salire fino a $650 se supera i $570.

Analisi del prezzo del Bitcoin Cash

Dopo aver testato la zona di supporto di $450, il prezzo del bitcoin cash ha iniziato un nuovo aumento. Il prezzo di BCH ha rotto la resistenza di 500 dollari per spostarsi in una zona positiva.

Il prezzo è anche salito sopra la resistenza di $520 e si è stabilito sopra la media mobile semplice 55 (4 ore). Tuttavia, il prezzo sta ora lottando per superare i livelli di resistenza di $560 e $570. Il recente massimo si è formato vicino a 570 dollari prima che il prezzo scendesse di qualche punto.

Ha corretto sotto il livello di $550. C’è stata una rottura al di sotto del livello di ritracciamento Fib del 23.6% del movimento verso l’alto dal minimo di swing di $473 a $570. Al ribasso, il livello di 530 dollari è un forte supporto.

C’è anche una linea di tendenza rialzista chiave che si sta formando con il supporto vicino a $535 sul grafico a 4 ore della coppia BCH/USD. Se c’è una rottura al ribasso sotto la linea di supporto, la coppia potrebbe scendere verso il supporto di $520. È vicino al livello di ritracciamento Fib del 50% del movimento verso l’alto dal minimo dello swing di $473 a $570.

Un’ulteriore perdita potrebbe richiedere un calo verso il livello di 500 dollari. Al rialzo, il prezzo sta affrontando molti ostacoli vicino ai livelli di $560 e $570. Una chiara chiusura sopra i 570 dollari potrebbe iniziare una forte impennata verso i 620 o addirittura i 650 dollari.

Guardando il grafico, il prezzo del bitcoin cash è chiaramente scambiato ben al di sopra di $520 e della media mobile semplice 55 (4 ore). Nel complesso, è probabile che il prezzo inizi una forte impennata se c’è una rottura al di sopra di $560 e $570 a breve termine.

Glassnode CTO: That’s how bullish the Bitcoin liquidity crisis is

If whales like MicroStrategy, Square and Grayscale continue to draw on the full, the market will soon run out of Bitcoin (BTC). Since the supply of the cryptocurrency is limited, in the opinion of the Glassnode CTO there is only one variable that can be adjusted: the price. The opinion ECHO.

True to the motto: “The world is not enough”, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor wants to buy more Bitcoin . For this, the corporate leader known in the scene as “Gigachad” wants to take on debt in US dollars again and exchange the proceeds for digital gold. As Saylor reported to business intelligence service Bloomberg , FOMO is still plaguing him:

We said pretty clearly that we would consider equity and debt financing … It makes sense to buy as much of this asset class as we can

Just last week it became known that the business intelligence company owns a further 19,450 BTC worth over a billion US dollars. MicroStrategy did not buy the Bitcoin with cash from its reserves (which should have been used up by now). Rather, the company, which is listed on the New York stock exchange Nasdaq, recently issued bonds, so-called senior convertible notes, and bought the coins on credit.

MicroStrategy currently holds 90,531 BTC, about 0.4 percent of all Bitcoin ever available. If Saylor is to be believed, the coins should never again be flushed to the surface of the blockchain. Bitcoiners like Saylor see BTC less as a currency and more as a store of value that can only be moved in an extreme emergency.

Is the Bitcoin faucet drying up?

The Bitcoin liquidity crisis is a prevalent theme in this bull market. In a nutshell, there is the narrative of decreasing BTC liquidity in the open market as demand increases. This, so the assumption, should have an ultra-bullish effect on the price in the short or long term. We had already reported about it in more detail here and here .

Tools & tips for your Bitcoin tax return

We explain to you what you should look for in your crypto tax return and introduce you to useful tools for optimization.

Now Rafael Schultze-Kraft, CTO at the Bitcoin data service Glassnode, provides further evidence for the thesis.

Accordingly, the growth of illiquid BTC, i.e. those that are generally not available to the market on the supply side, is greater than the general growth in BTC supply. The latter is equivalent to around 900 BTC per day.

Since 2017, net BTC has not been available to the crypto market any more, but rather less. If you consider how aggressively Grayscale (649,130 ​​BTC) MicroStrategy (90,531 BTC) and Square (8,027 BTC) suck the coins from the market, the overall package is quite bullish. Schultze-Kraft also sees it this way:

“If you combine [the liquidity crisis] with the demand from MSTR, Square, Tesla, Grayscale and others, you will understand how bullish it is,” the analyst writes on Twitter. Well then, cheers the bull market!

Mexican billionaire emulates Tesla boss Elon Musk

After Elon Musk recently caused a sensation on Twitter when he added a Bitcoin emoji to his profile description, the third richest man in Mexico is now following suit.

Ricardo Salinas Pliego is an entrepreneur and multi-billionaire from Mexico

On Twitter, the third richest man in Mexico added a “#Bitcoin” with an emoji to his Twitter bio over the weekend . Salina’s enthusiasm for cryptocurrency is no coincidence. In November of last year, Salinas also revealed on Twitter that 10 percent of its liquid portfolio was invested in Bitcoin. He said:

A lot of people ask me if I have bitcoins: yes, I invested 10% of my liquid portfolio.

With the declaration of loyalty to Bitcoin Era, Salinas draws level with Elon Musk on Twitter . The Tesla founder and richest person in the world allegedly caused the Bitcoin price to pump recently when he added #Bitcoin with the associated Bitcoin emoji to his profile description on Twitter. However, Salinas is ahead of its American role model in that the Mexican is already invested in Bitcoin, while the rumor mill is still simmering at Musk.

Elon Musk protegiert Dogecoin

While the first musky Bitcoin investment is expected with high tension, the multi-billionaire on Twitter ensures a good mood. There the Tesla founder regularly posts memes about the fun currency “Dogecoin”. This has the consequence that the price of the “Memecoin” shoots up. The price at the time of going to press is $ 0.0765.

Almost two weeks ago, the sudden rise in the price of Dogecoin caused a sensation. Shortly before, the price pumps of the GameStop share were omnipresent in the media through the r / wallstreetbets. Therefore, quite a few suspected that the same Reddit community could be behind the price explosion of the Dogecoin. Elon Musk’s tweets now do the rest.

Bank giant JPMorgan: Bitcoin price rises to 146,000 US dollars

Every Bitcoin rally inspires price fantasies. But while representatives from the crypto space are used to dizzying forecasts, expectations in the traditional financial world are rather sober. JPMorgan stands out there.

Anyone who has spent the last few weeks in hibernation should rub their eyes at the latest chart images

Bitcoin is in the fast lane and has gained nearly $ 15,000 since December alone. If Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, Managing Director at the banking giant JPMorgan, has his way, the end of the flagpole is not likely to be reached yet.

The financial expert predictsa bitcoin exchange rate (BTC) of around $ 146,000. The somewhat arbitrary number is made up of a simple calculation example and relates to the potential to overtake gold as a popular asset class among small investors in the long term. The calculation: If the spending of private investors in Bitcoin with investments in gold, including bars, coins or even exchange-traded financial products such as gold ETFs and ETCs, equates, the current Bitcoin market capitalization would increase from around 590 billion US dollars 4.6 times.

If you break this value down to the Bitcoin Supply, the exchange rate is 146,000 US dollars

The value is by no means set in stone and rather underlines the still immense growth potential of Bitcoin. Panigirtzoglou, who has already predicted a switch of capital inflows from gold to BTC in the past , is setting the timeframe wide and emphasizes that low volatility is a prerequisite for the transfer of assets. It may therefore be a few years before Bitcoin catches up with gold. But even if it is a gradual process, the ball is already rolling.

El alcalde de Miami está ‚abierto‘ a explorar la asignación del 1% de las reservas de la ciudad a Bitcoin

El alcalde de Miami, Francis Suarez, ha revelado que está abierto a explorar la asignación del 1% de las reservas del tesoro de la ciudad a bitcoin.

Suárez ha estado explorando la criptomoneda durante las últimas semanas

El alcalde de la ciudad de Miami, Florida, reveló que está dispuesto a asignar parte de las reservas del tesoro de la ciudad a BTC en respuesta a un tweet de Anthony Pompliano (también conocido como „Pomp“), cofundador y socio de Morgan Creek Digital Assets, pidiendo el movimiento.

La asignación, según los datos disponibles, sería significativamente menor que las inversiones que varias empresas han realizado en Bitcoin Revolution el año pasado. MicroStrategy, por ejemplo, ha comprado BTC por valor de más de $ 1 mil millones, mientras que la asignación de Miami podría ser de alrededor de $ 18 millones.

Sin embargo, para algunos en la comunidad criptográfica, la medida es parte de una adopción más amplia de la criptomoneda insignia

Otro usuario le pidió al alcalde Francis Suarez que permitiera a los ciudadanos pagar por los servicios de la ciudad en la criptomoneda insignia „como un comienzo“. En respuesta, Suárez dijo que la ciudad „definitivamente“ trabajará en eso este año.

En respuesta, otros usuarios señalaron a la senadora electa Cynthia Lummis, quien ha prometido impulsar el perfil de BTC en el Congreso cuando asuma el cargo. Durante un podcast, la República de Wyoming dijo que cree que Bitcoin es una gran reserva de valor que puede ayudar a abordar la deuda nacional de EE. UU., Que se dice que es una de sus mayores preocupaciones.

Para el senador electo, bitcoin es una mejor reserva de valor que el papel moneda, porque hay un suministro finito de BTC que puede estar en circulación: 21 millones de monedas. La inflación, dijo, está „incorporada al plan de la Reserva Federal para el dólar estadounidense“, hasta el punto de que las personas que viven de sus ahorros en las jubilaciones ven cómo su poder adquisitivo se ve erosionado por la inflación.

La adopción de Bitcoin parece, como tal, no solo ser entre corporaciones sino también entre funcionarios públicos. La demanda de la criptomoneda ha aumentado en los últimos meses, lo que ha ayudado a que su precio supere la marca de $ 30,000 por primera vez.

The 1inch platform launches its token

The 1inch platform launches its token and distributes the equivalent of $1,500 to selected users.

The 1inch decentralised exchange aggregator has just launched its governance token and has distributed 600 of them to some users via an airdrop. Are you eligible for this massive airdrop worth over $1,500? What are the eligibility criteria on Bitcoin Lifestle and how do you get your tokens back? We will explain the process to you.
The 1inch platform launches its token and distributes the equivalent of $1,500 to certain users.

The users of the 1inch decentralised exchange aggregator have just received one hell of a Christmas present. The platform has just launched today its governance token, the 1INCH.

This ERC 20 token gives its holders voting rights for the future of the protocol, notably to propose changes to fees, sponsorship rewards and governance rewards.

To reward its early users, the 1inch platform has therefore distributed tokens to those who meet certain conditions. Each eligible portfolio can receive 600 1INCH tokens, the equivalent of $1,600 at the time of writing this article. We explain this in more detail later.

Further 1INCH tokens will be distributed to users who provide liquidity for these 6 pools:

  • 1INCH-ETH
  • 1INCH-DAI
  • 1INCH-WBTC
  • 1INCH-USDC
  • 1INCH-USDT
  • 1INCH-YFI

Over the next 2 weeks a further 0.5% of the total supply of 1INCH tokens will be distributed to cash providers. Subsequent cash extraction programmes will be determined by 1INCH holders and community members.

Similar to Uniswap a few months ago, 1inch CEO Sergej Kunz believes that this new token will help accelerate the growth of the platform.

He adds in the official press release that approximately 50,000 portfolios will receive the 6% of the outstanding 1INCH token offer in the first distribution round. The current offer of the token is 1.5 billion units.

How do you get your 1INCH tokens back?

All wallets that have interacted with 1inch prior to December 24th will receive 1INCH tokens, but only if they meet one of the following conditions:

  • have completed at least one transaction before 15 September;
  • have completed a total of 4 transactions, even after 15 September;
  • have completed transactions for a total of at least $20.

If you meet one of these conditions, your portfolio is eligible to receive 600 1INCH tokens, or nearly $1,600 at the time of writing. The airdrop is obviously cumulative if you have several portfolios that have interacted with 1inch.

To claim your tokens, go to 1inch, connect your wallet to it and then click on the platform logo in the top right corner:

Then click on the „Check“ button to check if you are eligible for the airdrop. If so, you can then click on the „Claim“ button and receive your 1INCH tokens.

PayPal’s ravenous appetite for bitcoin outstrips supply

According to Dan Morehead, CEO of Pantera Capital, large investors such as PayPal and Square are buying up more than 100 percent of newly generated bitcoin holdings. However, this statement is somewhat misleading.

Dan Morehead, CEO of Pantera Capital, opined to CNBC that large investors, such as PayPal and Square, are investing massively in Bitcoin. According to the report, the two financial services firms alone bought up more than 100 percent of newly-generated bitcoin combined. Specifically, Morhead said in the interview published on Twitter:

We currently have buyers, like PayPal, who alone are buying more than 100 percent of newly issued bitcoin.

Morehead’s PayPal statement is misleading

This statement is actually somewhat misleading, as it implies PayPal and co. are buying the newly issued stock short. That’s only partially true. According to the four-year cyclical Bitcoin Union halving that took place in May, 6.25 Bitcoin are currently being mined worldwide every ten minutes. That makes circa 900 bitcoin a day. PayPal is acquiring 70 percent of the newly created bitcoin alone, according to an investor letter Pantera Capitals. Together with the investments of Cashapp, Square Inc.’s mobile payment service, the percentage of investments in freshly mined Bitcoin extends to more than 100 percent. It must be taken into account that miners also „hodln“ (hold) a part of their generated Bitcoin and do not resell it directly. In plain language, this means that large investors are buying more Bitcoin than is currently coming onto the market.

PayPal’s investment seems logical in that the payment service has about 300 million active users. Admittedly, there will already be numerous Hodlers with their own wallet among them; estimates assume around 100 million BTC owners. Still, PayPal will need to build up a large BTC reserve to meet demand – at least until bitcoin integration expands beyond the U.S., which is planned for 2021. After PayPal announced in October that it would be able to buy and sell cryptocurrencies through the payment service in collaboration with Paxos, the U.S. giant is stocking up on Bitcoin en masse.

PayPal CEO anticipates bitcoin mass adoption

In the first interview after PayPal’s bitcoin implementation, CEO Dan Shulman predicted mass adoption of bitcoin. He said he is certain that cryptocurrencies will become an everyday means of payment. In this regard, the global pandemic has greatly accelerated the trend, in his opinion. Shulman sees the future in a financial system that is faster, cheaper and more efficient than the traditional one. Financial inclusion, he feels, is desirable to allow people around the world to access the financial world.

Concerns that many people have about cryptocurrencies due to volatile prices are something the CEO can understand, he said. Especially for smaller traders on Paypal, the profit margins are sometimes small and can even be completely wiped out by fluctuating exchange rates. However, the exchange rate is always transparent and known to both sides at the moment of purchase. The risk of volatility is therefore not as high as initially thought.

Bitcoin miners tend to hold their Bitcoin in 2020

Often, a higher bitcoin price also gives miners a reason to sell their holdings. That’s what happened in 2017 and 2019 when the price shot up to interim highs of $20,000 and $14,000, respectively. Despite the current all-time high, the current trend among digital gold miners is to hold rather than sell. In fact, these are optimistic signs for bitcoin.

When more miners decide to hold bitcoin instead of selling it, a supply deficit is created. This should automatically improve the cryptocurrency’s bullish bias against booming demand from institutional investors, such as PayPal and Co.
