Windows 8 Tips and Tricks
Presented by Rita Wronkiewicz
Windows 8 is a powerful new operating system that can access and utilize a store of thousands of useful, interesting, and/or fun applications (apps). It provides the option of using a touchscreen monitor or your old mouse and keyboard. It also offers the same robust desktop experience as Windows 7 computers. Speaker Rita Wronkiewicz will review Windows 8 functionality and offer Tips and Tricks to help you take advantage of its increased capability and to tweak it so it has the more familiar look and feel of the popular Windows 7 computer.

ASK THE TECH
Our regular monthly meeting where all members can come to get solutions to their technical and non-technical WINDOWS PC and ANDROID PHONE and ANDROID TABLET problems. This meeting also serves as a discussion forum for any computing issues any member would like to bring up for exchange of ideas. If you don't feel comfortable asking a question or introducing a point in the meeting, simply click on this link (click) to email your question and we will be glad to answer at the meeting. Even if you don't have a question, come, listen and learn from others.
The Computer Club’s Major Challenge
In technology parlance, there are two types of residents living in Sun City Lincoln Hills: "digital natives", who have spent much of their adult lives surrounded by and using computers, cell phones, and other tools and toys of the digital age; and "digital immigrants", who have adopted computer technology later in life. It is the goal of the Computer Club to bridge the gap between the two types of residents living in Lincoln Hills.
Information Technology is nothing special to members who are digitized from birth, and they relate best to other members who are similarly inclined. This is why the Computer Club offers these more technology wise members the opportunity to attend special computer sessions like the Windows 8 Forum.
The biggest challenge of the SCLH Computer Club is to help our digitally challenged members successfully integrate new computer technology into their lives. The first step is to access our members current comfort level with computer technology. The idea is to build on what our members are doing now with their computers and see how we can modify their usage so that they can progress comfortably to a new and higher computer technology level. Toward this goal the Computer Club has done a good job in helping our members get started in the digital age. The Club offers personal help sessions and question and answer meetings that are geared to each individual member’s current technology comfort level.
The Computer Club is continually striving to design the perfect collaboration with our members so that we are all learning together in this fast paced digital age.
Remember your thoughts and ideas on how
how we can better serve you are always welcome.
