The Computer Group

Leader:  John Howlett - computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 01530 461774
Helpline: help.computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk

The Computer Group meets twice a month on the first Wednesday and third Monday of the month at 2pm.

We are not all computer geeks, but we do have members who know something about most types of computer whether it is a Windows PC, an Apple Mac, an iPad or an Android tablet.
We also discuss how to look after the files, music or photos on your computer, how to make backups or how to copy them to DVD or all sorts of "interesting" problems.
One thing we can't do is undertake hardware repairs, but we might know someone who can!
So if there is something you don't understand about your computer, from the simplest to the more esoteric, come along and we'll see what we can do for you.
We now have a new Computer Helpline so you can email us with any problems or questions. We can email you back, or better still, you can come along to the next meeting and someone should have worked out your problem and be able to talk you through it.

Send us details of your problem to help.computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk

Steve worked with Carolyn to sort out what files to clear off her laptop and how to install Open Office
in replacement for Windows Office and Outlook. Her license makes them non-functional.
A discussion ensued on the best way to tackle this: sort files into groups then delete en bloc? Or work
through the complete list deleting one by one?
Mike and JD talked further about clearing old laptops and looked at JDs Windows XP and Office 2000
CDs to establish a tactic for wiping old laptops for sale.
We next meet on Wednesday 1st May at 16 Winchester
