Download Multiple Files to PC from Whatsapp Easily

Whatsapp is a pretty amazing piece of software if you are old enough to remember the dark ages when people still made use of SMS and MMS to send annoying text messages to each other. You may not know that, apart from being available on your phone, if you have a Windows or Mac PC you can download the desktop client which allows you to use Whatsapp on your phone from your PC or laptop by connecting over your WiFi network. This means that if you are working and getting a lot of messages throughout the day then it allows you to reduce work interruptions checking your phone every 5 minutes and thereby impress your boss by being more productive

However, whilst this is a good feature, an excellent feature of the Whatsapp Desktop client is that it makes working with multiple files much easier than if you were using your phone. If you want to download a lot of messages, images, video or anything else you can do it in just a few short seconds, as opposed to fumbling around with your phone and Android file manager for much longer than is necessary.

Simply head over to Whatsapp.com to download the desktop app if you haven't already. Next you will need to link your phone and PC by heading over to https://web.whatsapp.com/ (just follow the instructions on the page). Now Whatsapp should be working on your PC and you should be able to read and write messages 'on the big screen'. If you have problems connecting then make sure the Whatsapp application is running on your phone, close the Whatsapp desktop app on your PC and reopen.

To download files from Whatsapp to PC:

  • Open the applicable chat where the files are
  • Scroll to the date in the conversation of the files you want to download
  • RIGHT CLICK in the background wallpaper of the conversation
  • In the menu that appears click SELECT MESSAGES
  • Use the SELECT BOXES on the left to select the appropriate files
  • In the BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER click the  download arrow
  • A ZIP file will save which you will need to extract (use 7zip)
  • Unzip the compressed file and your selected files will be on your PC

Game Pass for PC (and Xbox)

If you like playing games, have a PC or laptop, don't have the money to spend on buying new games and don't like the idea of pirating everything then Xbox Game Pass is an excellent idea. No longer in beta and now a fully-fledged Windows app, simply head over to the Microsoft Store in your Windows 10 menu and search for 'Xbox Game Pass for PC'. If you want to check out what games are available on the service then visit the Game Pass for PC homepage . Download the app, install and you can try the first month for the very, very low price of $1 which equates to about R16. For what you are getting this seems unbelievably cheap as it means you have access to a large library of games for PC that you can download and play as much as you like without having to purchase anything extra. As long as you continue to pay the monthly subscription fee, R99 at time of writing, you can download and play anything in the Xbox Game Pass library, no catches, hidden fees or anything else. The

Custom Subdomain with New Blogger

Blogger, if you aren't aware, is a very simple, free platform that Google offers for anyone that wants to start a blog, like this one. Very easy to get started with, it allows people with little or no web design experience to start blogging, without having to hire professional help. Should you decide to use it in future (or already do), one of the features of Blogger is that it allows you use a custom domain, meaning instead of yourblogname.blogspot.com you can change your blog address to something a bit more catchy like my.shinynewblog.com or whatever you prefer. When giving this a bash yesterday, I found it to be a more complicated than I remember it being on the old Blogger platform so if you also get stuck then this is a simple guide to try and help. If you find this guide too confusing and get stuck then don't forget to consult Blogger Support where you can ask questions and search answers. To setup a custom subdomain you are going to need to be able to login to your we
