Open Facebook post or notification in side Tab

Do you know that recently facebook added a new way of reading notifications or post activity? I am using this feature frequently nowadays. When you are in the news feed and suddenly someone comments on your post and get a notification you may have noticed that sometimes a tab pops up. But the problem is it doesn't appear every time. It is very helpful especially when you want to get in touch with a specific post. This is how it looks.

Facebook has recently also updated their video player. They have added a floating feature to the existing video player with some minor changes. Here is an article that I've written recently.
FACEBOOK VIDEO PLAYER NEW FEATURE

Now you can open any post in tab view like a message tab. To open a post in a side tab view click on the options arrow of the post. See the red circle on the image below.

Then click on More Options. A new option will appear. Then click on Show in tab. See the yellow mark on the image given below.

Now a new tab will appear on the right bottom side of your window. This feature is not for mobile users. If you already have a tab opened then the new tab will replace that existing tab.
Hope this trick will help you. Thanks

Facebook new video player feature

Facebook has added a new feature to their existing video player. We all know facebook is hardly trying to do something good with their video service. Still they have to go a long way to provide quality video service like youtube. Lets take a look of their new feature.

This is how it looks without being played

 I hope you have already noticed the red square on the photo. Pressing that button will open a floating video player where the video will be played. Yes, now you can see your video and check out your news feed at the same time.

This is how the floating video player looks like
The floating player has a very simple look. It has the title and status info, play button, volume button, close button, like button and the share button with the navigator. Me personally like this new feature. It is really helpful to play video and browse news feed simultaneously. Hope you will also like this feature.

Visual Studio Professional 2017 RC single file download. https://goo.gl/f0iYsa (I've tried this one)

I don't know what the actual problem is. So, I can not explain how this work. But this trick worked for me. I assume you have downloaded the installer. Now copy vs_SKU.exe (Ex: vs_professional.exe) and vs_installer.opc from the downloaded directory to a new directory/folder for safety. Open command prompt from the new directory. You can do this by holding shift+right click on blank space and select Open command window here. Copy the following command and press enter.

Note: Red marked text means where to download the vs_installer.opc file.
If you can not find the vs_installer.opc file after finishing the download then use this search tool to search the file (Download Everything). When you find the new file replace it with the original file.

Make sure to install certificates from certificate directory.
Now run vs_professional.exe
