Easily Add Custom Alaram Ringtones to Android Phone

If you are a user of Android phone and also a heavy alarm clock user, you will know that the default alarm clock app in Android phone does not provides you with lot of options, especially the ringtone.If you are looking to choose from a wide range of songs/ringtones that you are going to wake up with, you are going to be disappointed. There are effectively only one option (another is silent mode) and that is the irritating buzzer alarm.

It is very easy to add custom ringtones to youralarm clock, so you don’t have to wake up with the irritating buzzer alarm.

1. First connect your Android phone to the computer, via USB cable.

2. Mount your phone’s SD card to the computer.

3. Create a new folder call “alarms” (without the quotes) in the main directory of the SD card.
4. Copy all your favorite alarm clock ringtones to the folder.
5. Unmount the SDcard.
6. Start the alarm clock app,  now you can see your favorite ringtone in the selection field.

The same trick can also apply to the call ringtone and notification tone. Simply create two folders, “ringtones” and “notifications” and place the songs in them. They will appear in the respective settings of your phone.

Trick to Create a Custom function Shortcut in MS Acess

To run certain custom functions in MS Acess, we have to follow very lenthy steps & there is no inbuilt shortcut in shortcut menubar. So by this trick we can create new shortcut in shortcut menubar.

This trick suggest:

1.How to add a command to that menu that calls your Custom Function.
2.How to place your own custom command on the Shortcut Menu where you can access it easily.

Step1 :Open your database. Right click on the toolbar. Select “Customize . . .” A Dialog window appears. Click on the “Toolbars” tab. Next, click the “Shortcut Menus” checkbox. A long bar of Shortcut menu bar should appear:

Step2. On the dialog box select the “Commands” tab. Click on “File”. In the window click on “Custom” and drag it to the Shortcut Menu Bar. Drag it to “Report” then “Print Preview” and drop it where you want it to be in the menu that appears.

Step3.Right-click on the “Custom” menu item you just placed. A dialog box opens. In the “Name” box type in the command name you want the user to see in the Shortcut Menu. For Example, Save As Snapshot, or Save Snapshot, etc.

Step4.Next go to the bottom of the dialog box and click on “Properties”. A Dialog window pops up. In the “On Action” box enter the command to run your function like this: =MyFunctionName()

Click “Close” and Click “Close” again and now  you are ready to try your new shortcut menu command.
You can also add a command to the Form Shortcut menu. Just drag the “Custom” menu item to “Form” on the Shortcut Menu Bar and drop it in the “Form View Title Bar” Menu. Now you can launch your Custom Functions from the shortcut menu.

Finally Access stores the data about your customized Shortcut Bar Command in the Registry so it is available any time you use an Access Database on that computer.

I think it helps to run your custom functions from shortcut.
