Here’s how you can extract a PNG image from a PDF in Acrobat DC while preserving its transparency.

Do you use 3D printing to make functional parts? Do your printed parts have slight dimensional errors, such as undersized holes? It is essential to take care of this if you use your FDM 3D printer to make precise or functional parts. Here’s the easiest and most elegant fix, using nothing but your slicer and a caliper.
Because the extruded molten plastic gets squashed by the nozzle and also flows outward toward the sides, everything you print is fattened, creating overall oversized prints and undersized holes.
Fortunately, there are ways to fix this flaw. First, I would recommend against these methods, if you currently use them:
All the math symbols and equations show up as unformatted code on MasteringPhysics.com.
AdGuard’s “Send statistics for ad filter usage” option appears to be causing this error.
Go to the “Miscellaneous” section of the AdGuard settings and turn off “Send statistics for ad filter usage”.
Equalizer APO is not taking any effect in Windows 10.
In recent versions of Windows 10, UWP apps like “Movies & TV” may not get processed by Equalizer APO even with this fix.
I found a frequency response measurement of the HE400i that is more accurate than the ones I previously used in my equalizer settings. I discovered a way to extract the graph data from Rtings.com. Rtings.com has measurements of lots of headphones, and their methodology is one of the most accurate. So, I imported their data into Room EQ Wizard and created an equalizer profile to correct the frequency response of my HiFiMan HE400i.
I came up with the filters manually. I’m choosing not to boost the troughs or over-correct the treble to prevent side effects that arise when any particular listener’s ears don’t exactly match this graph.
Forget CPU and GPU thermal throttling — charge rate throttling is now a thing.
Therefore, even when the CPU is a little bit warm, the charging rate thermal-throttles.
I will discuss solutions to reduce this as part my throttling elimination project.
Also, the recent BIOS updates seem to have slightly improved the charge rate.
The “How do you want to open this file” prompt keeps popping up even though you specified the program to open your AHK files.
You’re probably using AutoHotkey v2.
My MateBook X Pro can sustain 2.1GHz on the desk for 5 minutes before shutting off due to VRM overheating (working on solving that right now), but this stand allows it to sustain 2.7GHz indefinitely. As a bonus, I removed the bottom lid altogether and just let the Noctua blow on the laptop’s heatsink directly. No thermal throttling at all anymore. 3.7GHz on all 4 cores. I might just use that when my laptop’s staying on the desk for a long time.
The biggest benefit of using the Noctua fan instead of lower-quality off-the-shelf laptop coolers is that the former is much quieter.
The bottom of the Huawei MateBook X Pro makes a creaking or squeaking noise when you lift the laptop by a bottom corner.
The noise is not caused by the laptop’s body but by the crinkling of the battery’s wrapping. You are exerting pressure on the battery area, slightly bending the bottom panel and pressing the battery.
When setting up Windows Hello, you can’t get past the first prompt to touch the fingerprint sensor.
