How To Access Internet On Your PC Using Your Internet Enabled Android Phone Quick and Easy

The following steps will teach you how to access internet on any PC having Windows OS 8 using your Android Phone’s Internet. What am about to explain you here teaches you to connect to internet using the method  called as ‘USB Tethering’.

This method may also work on any other OS such as Linux, or other Windows OSes which I haven’t tried yet but should work as well. You don’t need any supporting software to configure and start using the Internet.

You Need: Windows 8, Phone cable, and any Android phone

Step 1:

On your Android Phone go to the below screen and touch the settings button marked red in the below picture

Step 4:

Here you have the option to access internet on your PC using WiFi Tethering or Bluetooth Tethering besides USB Tethering. I tried accessing internet using the other two tethering methods which took lot of time to configure. I found USB tethering faster to connect to the internet.

As shown below, at this screen choose ‘USB Tethering’.

Make sure your phone is connected to your PC via USB cable, that comes with your phone, at the time you are  following these steps.

Step 5:

Once you choose USB Tethering you should be able to get this screen which says, ‘Tethered’. Now you are ready to go. Watch what happens on your PC while you perform this step: You must get a message asking you ‘Yes’ or  ‘N0’ question. Just choose ‘Yes’.



Step 6:

Now open your browser and start browsing.




How to convert PSD to HTML(The must use codes that let your creative render perfectly across all the platforms)

This article is for those who are well aware of HTML/CSS, PSD, and Templates… I am writing this article in brief, gradually I may extend the content to make it more elaborate. Please share your queries under the comment section. So here it goes…

1. HTML based vs. DIV based

To make the HTML to render across email clients and browsers, table based design is used instead of DIV based design. Using DIV based design doesn’t render in some browsers and email clients. Therefore stick to Talble based design whereever you wish your build to appear on every platforms.

2. Slicing the PSD horizontally rather than vertically

Once you get a Design which is obviously in the form of PSD, it’s a developer’s job to convert that design to code.

Before converting the PSD to HTML, a developer has to keep a layout in his mind. Layout has to be such that the contents are sliced horizontally rather than vertically. Slicing the PSD vertically creates problems while writing HTML code for a Web Developer so its preferred to slice horizontally.

3. Coding on Dreamweaver

After making layout, the next step is to code the layout on HTML platform. Dreamweaver is a preferred platform to code HTML.

4. Must have properties in TDs

Make sure your TD looks like this:

Missing “align” and “valign” in the TD causes rendering issues. And width should not be in terms of percentage.

For Example: <td width=”600″ align=”left” valign=”top”>

5. Always include Display Block, alt, title, border property for all the image tags which should look like this.

<img src=” ” width=”” height=”” alt=” ” title=” ” border=”0″ style=”display: block;”>

6. Table width % or Px ?

Never declare width as 100% to the inner tables. Include 100% to the width only to the outer tables. For the inner tables you can include the width as a number. For example: width=”300”

7. For the images that are below 25px

style=”font-size: 0%;” for all the images whose height is below 25px in the TD,

For example:

<td width=”16″ align=”left” valign=”top” bgcolor=”#ffffff” style=”font-size: 0%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: none;”>height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” title=”” style=”display: block;”></td>

8. Always use style=”-webkit-text-size-adjust: none;” in the body

Some browsers automatically increase the size of the text to suit the browser display. To stop the browser from doing so use the property >>style=”-webkit-text-size-adjust: none;”<<  which disables browsers default size rendering ability.

With the above 8 points I stop here to continue writing more soon. Please leave your comments.
