The Computer Group

Leader:  John Howlett 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

7th March

A healthy turnout of nine got us off to a good busy start.
New member Maureen Broad and John D looked at iPad emails and how to delete unwanted ones, and how to check key storage information in Settings. We also worked on cutting and pasting both on tablets with fingers, and on PC's with a mouse.
New visitor Joan Gibson needed help with transferring the contents of a back up drive, containing files from an old laptop, to a newer laptop. Deleting unwanted file gave her and Colin Woodland some good exercise.
Steve helped Bic in developing his Photo-shopping skills.
John H helped in various roles, and Mike and Colin Ellis stood by, or sat by, ready to help.
