Most workplaces encourage you to take breaks, but when you are working, you’re supposed to be productive. But what do you do if you can’t focus?
Your workplace environment can be the key to boosting your productivity levels. This is mainly because a lot of offices and workplaces aren’t designed to boost focus and communication, making it more difficult for employees to find their productivity strike.
In fact, workplace design has been shown to increase (or decrease) your work output. Check today’s infographic to see how your office measures up, and pay attention to the five ways to increase productivity!
For example, a Cornell University study found that workers exposed to low noise were more stressed than others exposed to zero noise. There’s a reason to spring for noise-canceling headphones!
Another interesting find? The colors on your walls can have a big impact on your daily performance. If you can convince your employer to paint the walls green or blue, you could find yourself getting more done. If you want to start small, you could get a bright poster with those colors!
Studies are showing that traditional office spaces don’t work well for fostering collaborative, innovative and productive workplaces. Open office spaces that encouraged idea sharing and collaboration make it easier for everyone to enjoy the workday. Make sure you forward today’s infographic to your boss!
You must have tried hiding your important files or folders in your PC by changing attributes to Hidden. But this kind of the tricks are quite old and can be easily hacked. People can easily change Folder options to Show hidden files and folders and all your secrets are revealed. There are many third party softwares available which can hide your files and folders using password. But if somebody knows your vault’s password, everything is exposed. In this tutorial I am going to explain a method using which, your folders and files will become completely unsearchable and could not be found even by searching. In this method we will change folder’s attributes to not only Hidden but also to System and Read-only. Windows does not search system files unless directed by user and you can’t delete a folder normally if that is not visible. Even if you try to delete this folder using Command Prompt, it gives Access Denied error.
First create a folder with any name. In this tutorial, I have created a folder in “C:” drive with the name Secret, you can choose another location and another name. To create a new folder, Right-click anywhere in blank space and select New >> Folder.
Rename this newly created folder to any desired name. I use the name Secret.
Now, we will change the attributes of this folder. Press Windows Key + R to launch RUN utility, type cmd in that and press Enter or click OK.
Command Prompt window will open.
In Command Prompt wind, type following command and press ENTER
attrib +r +h +s /s /d "C:\Secret"
attrib Used to change attributes of any file or folder.
+r Change the attributes of file or folder to Read-only.
+h Change the attributes of file or folder to Hidden.
+s Change the attributes of file or folder to System.
“C:\Secret” Address of Target file or folder.
Go back to the location where you recently created Secret folder. You will not find any Secret folder, its hidden.
Now, try to change Folder options to show hidden files. Follow the steps shown in screenshot below-
After enabling Show hidden files and folder, go back to location where you created Secret folder, you will still not see it there.
