Raindrop.io – All In One Bookmarks and Collections Manager

There are many options to store your bookmarks; but, Raindrop.io has to be best. Here at “What’s On My PC” I have been focused on finding something to store collections of things I am specifically focused on. For example, I may be looking at a collection of Android apps to post about on the blog. Typically, I could create a folder in my bookmark manager, label it Android apps, and just bookmark it; BUT, I wanted something that had a more modern visual appeal to it that would allow me to customize it to my liking.

I think I found what I have been looking for with Raindrop.io… It allows me to store my regular bookmarks; has the option to create collections; has modern visual features; has mobile platform options; has browser extensions; and, it allows me to customize the appearance. What more could I want?

NEW Vivaldi Web Browser for Android

Yesterday I posted about the NEW upgraded version of Vivaldi for Windows and let me tell you, it is now my default web browser. It is that good.

In follow up to that post I decided to try out Vivaldi’s new Android version and again, after some testing and trying, it to is a winner. The Android version is very close to the features of the version for Windows and it is very fast. No hurt in giving it a try…

Best App To Remote Into A Windows PC From A Chromebook

Splashtop Personal (see links below) is the best app I have found that allows me to remote control into a Windows computer on my home network from my Chromebook. Splashtop Personal is FREE and will only work within the same LAN (local area network), such as what most of us have in our homes. One thing to point out… The steps below will also work from your Android phone or tablet.

Splashtop Downloads Diagram

  1. If you own a Chromebook that supports running Android apps, download (and install) from the Google Play Store the Android App called Splashtop Personal – Remote Desktop. Open Splashtop and setup an account (requires that you enter an email and create password). You will be sent an authentication email to validate the account.
  2. On the Windows PC that you wish to control, download (and install) the  Splashtop Personal App for the version of Windows you are running. You will be required to enter the email and password again in order to make the connection.
  3. Once the above steps are completed, open the app on the Chromebook and you should see the Windows computer where the software was installed. Make the connection and you will see the Windows computer screen on your Chromebook. On the right bottom side of the screen you will see a darkened control module that will slide out (when clicked on) that will reveal a  bottom button menu and/or a top button menu. From these menus you can manage and control the connection and various options. One thing to point out… To open the “Windows Menu” and to show the “Taskbar” on the remote computer, open the top button menu and double click on the “Windows Start Menu” icon.

I have found “Splashtop” to be the best out there. When I am using “Splashtop”, I feel like I am on my Windows Computer when I remote in from my Chromebook… “Splashtop” also offers commercial versions of their remote software and apps that allow you to access a computer when outside of your home or business.
