How to Add Current Date and Time to Website Using JavaScript

Adding date and time to your web page is a nice thing to do since users doesn’t necessarily have to exit your page in order to check the date and time (although, they don’t necessarily have to leave your page in order to know the date and time since it is most probably displayed at the bottom right corner of every windows task bar). I want to believe that you must have seen this in some web pages and want to include it in your own page which is why you are viewing this.

There are so many ways via which one can achieve this but the method I want to show you requires just adding a simple JavaScript code to each of the pages you want the date and time appearing. All you need to do is copy the code snippet below and paste anywhere in your pages where you want the date and time to appear.

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write("" + Date() );

Good thing is that by adding the above simple JavaScript code to your web page, you get to display not only the date and time but also the time zone which you are in.

Steps to Create a Chrome Browser Restart Tab (shortcut button)

Chrome restart button
The Chrome browser has lots of hidden features which happens to be useful in so many ways. One of such feature is the restart option which automatically restarts and restores the browser tabs that were open before the browser was restarted. Isn’t this awesome? Unlike the usually manual way we are used to restarting browsers, you can just create a shortcut button in Chrome so that whenever you click on it, the browser will automatically restart itself with the opened page tabs before the browser was restarted, restored.

Basically, to restart the Chrome browser, all you need to do type in chrome://restart in the browser's address bar and hit enter. This will automatically restart the browser by closing and re-opening it. To avoid typing in chrome://restart into the address bar whenever you want to restart the browser, you can just create a shortcut button which if clicked on, automatically restarts the browser. To create the shortcut link, simply follow the easy step below;
  • While in the chrome browser interface, simultaneously press Ctlr + D on your computer keyboard.
  • Once the keys as specified above are pressed, the Chrome’s bookmark box will open. Click on the Edit button just as I have shown via the image below.

Chrome restart - Edit

  • Next enter the name you want to give the new tab (shortcut button). Preferably, I will say you name it Restart Chrome for easy recognition. Then change the newtab in chrome://newtab to restart such that instead of chrome://newtab appearing, you have chrome://restart in the URL bar.

Chrome restart - URL

  • Finally click on Save and you done.

Chrome restart - Save

  • If you followed the above steps properly, then you should see a tab named Restart Chrome appearing in the Chrome browser’s interface. Whenever you wish to restart the Chrome browser and don’t want to close opened browser tabs, simply click on the Restart Chrome button.

Chrome restart - tab

Endeavor to share with friends and family using the social media buttons below. You never can tell who might be in need of this.

How to Change Microsoft Edge Default Search Engine From Bing to Another

Microsoft Edge

If your computer is running on Microsoft Windows 10 operating system, then you must have noticed that the operating system came bundled with another browser besides the popular Internet Explorer found in the previous versions of Windows. The new browser which is referred to as the Microsoft Edge somehow to me is far off better than Internet Explorer which I find annoying at times. Probably one day, Microsoft might decide to drop Internet Explorer for the Microsoft Edge considering the fact that it is a little more promising and somehow more effective.

Have you used Microsoft Edge to search the web before? Microsoft Edge browser uses Bing as its default search engine, but it is possible to change that if you so wish. In this guide, I shall be showing you guys how to change the default search engine in Microsoft Edge so that whenever you key in a search query, it opens in the search engine of your choice. Edge basically can use any search engine that supports OpenSearch as its default. So if you are interested in changing the Microsoft Edge default search engine to one you prefer, then follow the simple guide below;
  • Launch the Microsoft Edge Browser and enter the URL of the search engine you wish to make the default.
  • Once in the search engine’s homepage (interface), locate and click on the Microsoft Edge’s Menu button.
Microsoft Edge - menu
  • From the drop down menu that will appear, select Settings as indicated in the image below.

Microsoft Edge - settings

  • Scroll down the Settings panel to Advanced Settings and click on View Advanced Settings just as I have shown using the image below.

Microsoft Edge - view advanced settings
  • Once the Advanced Settings panel opens, scroll down the panel to the option that reads “Search in the address bar with” and click on the drop down arrow button below it.

Microsoft Edge - drop button

  • Next select <Add New> from the “Search in the address bar” drop down option.

Microsoft Edge - add new
  • If you have visited popular search engines before using this browser, you will notice that some of them are already in the Add New section of the “Search in the address bar” panel. Simply select the one you want to make the default search engine for Microsoft Edge from the list provided and then click on Set as Default just as I have pointed out in the image below.  
Microsoft Edge - add as default

  • If the search engine you want to make default for Microsoft Edge is not yet listed, just enter the search engines URL in Edge’s address bar. Once the search engines page opens, you should see it showing among the options of search engines to set as default.
