Description

Please contact the Coordinator for latest information on dates and timings.

Until a few years ago, the vast majority of computer users had IBM compatible computers using Microsoft Windows®. However the success of tablet computers, in particular the Apple iPad® has significantly changed that and many people now use tablet computers or I pads at home to “surf the net”. This variety of devices used at home and the wide range of members’ experience and knowledge of computers has made it impracticable to have a programme of talks on specificnners and printers topics. So we try to help members with their specific problems, and this means that we have to restrict the numbers in the Groups and also stream the Groups according to the way that the computer works.

We have one group at present to help members how to get the best out of their computers, tablets, I pads . We cover Windows up to Version 10 , Apple devices, scanners and printers.

Computer Studies is intended for members with computers, tablets, and smart phones that use any version of Microsoft Windows®.

Computer Security Advice

If you have a computer and you use it to “surf” the internet, or use online banking or shop online, you should always have a firewall and anti-virus software installed on your computer. Many computers, including the latest versions of Windows, have a firewall installed.

Make sure that your computer is set up to receive the latest operating and program security updates and also the latest updates for your anti-virus software.
