Let's just say that if you want to easily watch videos on YouTube, these are great shortcut tips.

Volume up/ down: If you want to turn volume up or down when a video is playing, press up arrow to increase volume or down key to decrease volume of the videos.
Forward or Rewind a video: Pressing left key rewinds video 10% and right key forwards video 10%.
Skip through the video: If you do not like the starting of a video and want to skip the starting part or even want to jump over to half of the video, you can do so using keys 0 to 10. 0 being a shortcut to jump at the beginning of the video.

Remove a Bios Password

This is the easiest way to do it

1-The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery.
