How To Change Country In The Google Play Store

 

If you want to change the country for your Google Play app store, here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Sign into your Google Wallet account to manage your payment methods (https://wallet.google.com/manage/paymentMethods).
  2. Delete all of your payment methods from Google Wallet, and only add a card to one with a billing address located inside your desired country.
  3. Open the Play Store and navigate to any item available for download.
  4. Click to begin a download until you reach the “Accept and buy” screen (no need to complete the purchase).
  5. Close the Play Store and clear data for the Google Play Store application (Settings > Apps > Google Play Store > Clear Data) or clear your browser cache.
  6. Re-open the Play Store. You should now see the Play Store that matches your default payment instrument’s billing country.

If that doesn’t work for you, then you may also need to do the following:

  1. Go to wallet.google.com, Settings, and change your Home Address.
  2. Go to the Address book tab and remove your old address.
  3. Accept the new Terms and Conditions for your country.
  4. Go to the device settings and clear the data for the Google Play Store application (Settings > Apps > Google Play Store > Clear Data).

How to Browse The Web In #Privacy Mode

Google Chrome

image

Google Chrome can be forced to run in “Incognito” – private browsing mode when you launch it, by adding a simple command line switch. In Windows, right click on the Chrome shortcut and select properties. In the target area, just add –incognito to the end of the string. For profiles, use:

C:Users<username>AppDataLocalGoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe -incognito –user-data-dir=”..User Data<username>”

Mozilla Firefox

image

Firefox can be made to run in default private browsing mode, by adding the command line switch –private to the end of the target.

Internet Explorer

image

As with Firefox, add the command line switch -private to launch Internet Explorer in InPrivate mode.

Opera

Since Opera has per-tab private browsing (unlike the others), adding the        -newprivatetab switch will load both a blank, private tab and whatever your startup preference is set to (last tabs, speed dial, etc.) in standard browsing mode.

Life Through Google Glass

A team within Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. The video above shows where the technology is headed

How to Create Profiles in Google Chrome

image

Google Chrome allows users to create multiple user accounts but if you want to keep your web history and passwords hidden from other Chrome users, you need to create a separate profile as explained below.

1: Launch Google Chrome and use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Del to clear your entire web browsing history.

2: Open Windows Explorer and switch to Chrome’s User Data folder available at:

chrome-profile3: While inside Windows Explorer, select the subfolder called “default” and make a copy of that folder inside the same “User Data” folder of Chrome. Rename that new folder copy to, say, Your_Name as shown in the screenshot.

For Windows 7 and Windows Vista 
C:Users<username>AppDataLocalGoogleChromeUser Data 

For Windows XP 
C:Documents and Settings<username>Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeUser Data

4: We will now reset this new “Your_Name” profile in Chrome to the factory defaults. Open “Command Prompt”, use the “cd” command to switch to the Chrome Application folder (where Chrome is installed) and run the following command:

chrome.exe --user-data-dir="..User DataYour_Name" -first-run

5: Your new user profile in Chrome is ready for use. To run Google Chrome using this profile instead of the default profile, let’s create a shortcut. Right click anywhere on the desktop, choose New -> Shortcut and type the following in the location box:

For Windows 7 and Vista:
C:Users<user>AppDataLocalGoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe --user-data-dir="..User DataYour_Name"

For Windows XP:
C:Documents and Settings<user>Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe --user-data-dir="..User DataYour_Name"
