How to make the screen record
Opera also has the ability to include a separate video window, and on top of all windows. But in fact, there is nothing special to tell here, since everything works on the principle of the Yandex browser. Enter any video on YouTube and hover over the screen in the same way. You will see how a special icon will pop up, clicking on which the video will make its copy, detaching it from itself. That is, you can watch the clip both in the browser and in the hotel window, which will always be in the foreground.
After installation, a new pin icon will appear in the upper right corner. This will be the extension we need. It will be inactive on regular sites. But if you go to any YouTube video, then the add-on is activated. Click on it to duplicate the active video, opening it in a small window on top of all windows.
Of course, the display will be in the center of the screen, which is terribly inconvenient. Therefore, hover over the roller and you will see the cross icon. By holding down the left mouse button on it, you can move the video wherever you want. I prefer, for example, to watch them in the upper right corner or in the center, since I do not use this area during my work.
If you want to unpin the video, that is, do not put it on top of all windows, then click on the pin icon that is on it. As you can see, it is very convenient and SIMple.
Of course there are other extensions as well, like separate window. but there, unfortunately, there is no way to put the video in the foreground. That is, as soon as you change, minimize the browser or open a new tab, they will close the video with themselves. Agree that in this case it is of little use. After all, in fact, you can open the video SIMply in a new browser window and reduce its size. However, I did this before, until I found out about the normal ways.
It is easiest to display the video in a separate window in the Yandex browser, since this function is there by default. Yes, you probably saw ads when you watched any videos on YouTube. But if you do not know how to separate the video, then I will show you.
Go to YouTube through the yandex browser and play a video. After that, hover over him. Do you see the icon in the top center? You will need to click on it to separate the vidos. The service will sort of pull it out for you, after which only a small window will appear. The most important thing is that it will be on top of all windows, even if you use Explorer or work in any program.
Well, to drag the video, just hold down the left mouse button anywhere on it and move it anywhere. And of course, I can’t help but clarify about the dimensions. If the video seems too large or too small to you, then move the mouse over any corner of the screen until the cursor changes. Then pull in the direction you want until you get the size you want. By clicking on the cross, you can close the clip completely. But this I think is understandable.
Unfortunately, the “red panda” turned out to be the toughest nut to crack on our list today. There are currently no built-in functions there, as well as worthy extensions. It feels like developers are ready to create addons only for downloading from YouTube, but for nothing else. However, I will show you one supplement that I found most appropriate. This extension will help us watch videos on YouTube in a separate window, but without viewing on top of all windows.
- So, go to Mozilla Firefox and select “Menu” (three stripes in the upper right corner). “Add-ons”.
- Enter in the search line “Iridium” and select the add-on of the same name. Or you can follow this link. so as not to hemorrhoids with the search.
- After the addon is installed, reload or open a new tab with a YouTube video. You should now see a few new icons below the video itself. By clicking on the Pop-up video button, the video will open in a new small window that you can drag and drop anywhere. True, as I said above, this thing will not be fixed in the foreground.
The only thing that this extension can be useful is that you can read the comments on this video, and the video itself will scroll with you. That is, reading the comments, you will not miss anything. Therefore, I urge you, dear friends. If you have found a way to do all this miracle with fixing the video in the foreground, then please share your thoughts in the comments.
The Youtube Enhancer add-on can do the same. but unfortunately it is also not able to be fixed to the main background. And the only plus of this addon is that it also displays the video in a separate window when scrolling down and viewing comments.
First, we’ll take a look at how this feature is implemented in different browsers. After all, each reviewer needs its own approach.
How to display video in a separate window in Yandex browser, Google Chrome, Opera and Firefox to watch it on top of all windows
Hello everyone, dear friends. Today I will tell you how to display a video in a separate window in the Yandex browser, Google chrome, opera and mozilla firefox, as well as using a separate program. For example, I often use these methods. The fact is that sometimes I do routine work that does not require touching on any thought processes. This kind of work becomes boring, so I include either a movie or YouTube videos. Thus, in a separate browser window I have a video that I watch while I work. It turns out that the work is done, and I’m not bored.

But just keep in mind that this method exists not only for pinning a video. You can work with it both in any browser and in Windows Explorer. Well, the most relish is that you can dock multiple windows. To do this, it is enough to repeat the entire above procedure.

How to stretch 4: 3 to full screen: goodbye stripes!
Author: reslton (dirol) Posted on 21.10.2017 Updated 21.10.2017
For NVidia and AMD
Video card drivers allow you to separately adjust the game stretch. Therefore, you can work through them. But first, we set the standard parameters in the game (4: 3 and 1024×768). Then we proceed directly to stretching CS GO 4: 3.
What will stretch the image?
Game and video card settings
How do I stretch 4: 3 to full screen so it doesn’t get 16: 9? Easily. But for this you have to go beyond the game settings. Now we will learn how to make 4: 3 in the form of a rectangle. Even on awkward Windows 10.
First you have to set the settings that are necessary to stretch the game. This is a 4: 3 (square) format with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels, the display mode is full screen. All methods work with such a base. After saving the settings, you must close the CS GO.
Then you have to open the Game Library on Steam and find CS GO among the list. Then right-click on it and open “Properties”. Here we need the section “Launch Options”.
A window will appear with a line into which you need to copy two commands:
With their help, the game will start in a window, but without frames. After that, you will have to tinker a little with the settings of the video card itself. In this case, the image outside the game will also be stretched. So, if this option does not suit you on an ongoing basis, you can either reconfigure each time before playing the game, or try other methods.
So, most laptops have an Intel chip in addition to an NVidia or AMD graphics card. We will work through him. It is necessary:
Right-click on the desktop;
Select the line “Graphic characteristics”;
In the new window, click on the square with the inscription “Display”;
Set a resolution SIMilar to the game (1024×768);
At the bottom, find the “Scaling” section and put a tick on the “Zoom to full screen” item;
Save settings and close panel.
After that, the image will change. You can safely go into the game and enjoy the enlarged models. The result is a standard 4: 3 stretched over a rectangular monitor. In some cases, especially on Windows 10, there will be no effect.
Right-click on the desktop;
Select “NVidia Control Panel”;
Find “Adjust the size and position of the desktop”;
Set the parameter “Full screen”;
Attention! If there is no such item, you need to reinstall the drivers for the video card. Reduced functionality of the control panel. the problem of crookedly installed drivers.
How to stretch 4: 3 to full screen: goodbye stripes!
Black bars on the sides of the screen are a common problem for those who like to play on laptops and rectangular monitors. It’s ugly, inconvenient, and distracting. But, fortunately, the problem can always be removed. Let’s figure out how to stretch 4: 3 to full screen on a laptop.
How to stretch 4: 3 to full screen
The settings of the game itself allow you to make a widescreen image. But it just adds a viewing angle, although it removes the black stripes on the sides. For real traders, this is not the most profitable option.
Therefore, you can use another method. stretching. What are its advantages:
-easier to aim. the enemy visually becomes wider due to deformation of the image;
-the mouse begins to move faster to the side, while maintaining vertical speed;
-aesthetic pleasure. black bars do not distract, the entire screen area is involved.
-If this is what you need, then let’s proceed to the analysis of how to stretch an image in CS GO!
SIMilarly, right-click on the desktop;
Select “Graphics Properties” from AMD;
In the window that opens, click on the “Games” tab;
Find CS GO in the list;
Click on “Profile parameters”;
Select “Display scaling” and mark “Full panel”;
Return to the main screen of the graphics control panel;
Click on the “Display” tab;
Enable GPU Scaling.
Instead of these settings, if you want to stretch all games at once, you can go directly to “Display” and turn on “GPU scaling”, and then select the “Full Panel” scaling mode.
After that, the screen in CS GO is stretched as planned. But the image on the whole computer will not suffer. Therefore, there is no need to constantly change the settings. over, the method works even on Windows 10.
If you just want to increase the viewing angle
When you do not need to spoil the image, making it disproportionate and elongated, you can SIMply change the format in the settings and expand the screen. For this you need:
Go to CS GO;
In the “Screen format” section, put the banal 16: 9.
After that, the viewing angle in the game will be higher, and the image will not be spoiled by stretching. There is no practical benefit from this, as such, but aesthetic feelings do not suffer. But 4: 3 in full screen is larger for those who want to play better, but easier.

This is enough for many users, but, for example, if you read a lot from your phone, you may not have enough time. Or, for example, you are preparing food according to the recipe found on the tablet. you will not constantly press the screen with your hands in flour so that it does not turn off?

The application is very SIMple. when launched, it turns off the sleep timer (i.e. the phone screen will remain on until the battery runs out or until you turn it off). When you click on the application icon again (or when you click on the icon with the sun in the shade), the sleep timer turns on (the value you set in the settings is returned). Here’s a demo of how the app works:
Setting the computer to go to sleep through the Control Panel
If you want the computer not to go into sleep mode after closing the lid or for a long period of inactivity, you can change the corresponding settings in the Control Panel and disable this function. This solution works the same on all versions of Windows, starting from Windows 7.
So, first you need to open the “Control Panel” and go to the “System and Security” section and then to the “Power supply” subsection. If you can’t find this subsection, then use the search on the “Control Panel”. There is a search bar in the upper right corner of the Control Panel window. Enter “Power supply” there, and you will immediately find what you need. In Windows 8 and Windows 10, you can go to the power settings using the menu that opens with the WindowsX key combination.
After opening the subsection “Power supply” you need to go to the settings for the power supply scheme. Please note that you need the settings for the exact power scheme that you are using. If you use several power supply schemes, then the settings described below must be repeated for each scheme.
After opening the Power Options, you must select the “Never” option for the “Put the computer to sleep” function. Here you can also set the time after which the computer screen will turn off if the computer is idle. After making all changes to the settings, do not forget to click on the “Save changes” button.
After these manipulations, the computer will no longer go into sleep mode when idle. However, sleep mode can still be used when closing the laptop lid. In order to disable this function, return to the “Power supply” and go to the “Action when closing the lid”.
After that, you will see a window in which you can configure the behavior of the laptop when you press the power button, when you press the sleep button and when you close the lid. At the same time, for each of these actions, you can configure two options for the behavior of the computer, depending on whether it is running on battery or from the network.
To prevent the computer from going into sleep mode when the lid is closed, change the “Sleep” value to “No action required” for the action when the lid is closed.
How to prevent the computer from going into sleep mode
Many users are annoyed when their computer or laptop goes to sleep. This usually happens after some computer idle time or after closing the laptop lid.
The computer behaves in this way in order to conserve electricity or battery power on the laptop. But, if you don’t care about saving, then you can disable this function.
In this article we will show you how to prevent your computer from going into sleep mode. The article will be relevant for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
Configuring the computer to go to sleep through Settings
The Windows 10 operating system has an alternative to the Control Panel, the so-called Settings menu, which can be opened from the Start menu. Among other things, this menu can be used to configure the current power plan. To do this, open the “Settings” and go to the “System. Power and sleep mode”.
In this section of the “Settings” you can configure when the computer should turn off the screen and go to sleep mode when the computer is inactive for a long time.
Configuring the computer to go into sleep mode through the Command line
You can also prevent your computer from going to sleep using the command line. To do this, open a command prompt and run the following commands in it:
- powercfg.x.standby-timeout-ac 0
- powercfg.x.standby-timeout-dc 0
These commands prevent the computer from going into sleep mode (set to “never”) while online (command with the.standby-timeout-ac parameter) and while on battery power (command with the standby-timeout-dc 0 parameter).
It should be noted that the commands described work equally well in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
