Backing Up Your Computers

Are you backing up your computers? If not you need to be. We will show you how to properly back up your computers so you are certain all your pictures, documents, videos, and your programs are safe. If you follow our tips you won’t need to be as worried about the new ransomware threats as you would if you weren’t following our tips. The software is free and we will discuss several types of backup devices and compare them to online services.

Home Theater

Did you know you can connect just about any new laptop or desktop computer directly to your TV? In this seminar, we will have a computer connected to a TV and in seconds we will be watching movies, looking at vacation pictures and videos on the big screen. We will also be able to surf the web with a special keyboard with a touchpad right from the couch.

Apps for your PC and Devices

When did programs become Apps? What is the difference between an App and a program like Word or Excel? We will show you the differences and teach the terms needed to understand installing Apps and/or Programs on your devices. Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 all have both Apps and Programs available so we will show you the difference and you will come away from this seminar with a good understanding of them both. You might be surprised to find some Apps that you didn’t know about and also how they can help you with every day computing tasks.


We look forward to seeing you at our Free monthly seminars.
