Getting Down To Basics:
Computer Procedures Everyone Should Know
Although home computers have been around for over 30 years, we keep discovering that many people don't know how to perform basic tasks that make using a computing device so much easier. In this free, 30-minute webinar, we're going to look at 15 procedures everyone should know how to perform without even thinking about the steps. Join us and invite a friend!

Question of the Week
Question:  "I have a Windows 10 computer and I just purchased a new printer. I plugged the printer into the computer via a USB cord and Windows 10 automatically installed the printer.  Without me doing anything, I could print in just a few minutes.  That was great!  However, when I push the SCAN button on the printer, nothing happens.  What's wrong?"

Answer:  As Microsoft's Operating Systems have moved from one version to the next, the software has gotten much better at automatically installing peripheral equipment, like printers.  In the "old days," you would need a disc with printer software to get your printer going.

When Windows 8 first appeared, there was a shift.  (And this has continued with Windows 10.)  More and more printers would install automatically.  The software would automatically go online, find the print driver for the printer, download it and install it.  Voila!  You could print!  

Unfortunately, only the print driver installs-no software for scanning or any other functions of the printer.  So, what's the answer for scanning?  You need to visit the printer manufacturer's support site and download the Windows 10 full printer package.  (This is a free download.) That package will include the software for scanning, etc.

A word of caution:  do NOT "Google" or "Bing" search for the drivers for your printer.  These types of searches are havens for hackers' fake pages.  Instead of getting the drivers you want, you'll get malware, adware and maybe even viruses.  If you need software for your printer, you should always go to the manufacturer's support site.

March Seminar
Saturday: March 12, 2016
11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
For March, the first thing to note is that there's a time change.  We will be meeting at 11:00 a.m. instead of the usual 10:00 a.m.  The Men of Trinity have a Pancake Breakfast that morning (from 8:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. - the breakfast is terrific, by the way - you should consider coming!) so we need an extra hour to prepare for the seminar.  The title for our seminar this month is "You Already Have A Pot O'Gold."  The cost is still $8 per person.  We're going to talk about the power of the computer you have in front of you!  This should be an enlightening session and we hope to see you there.  Please bring a friend!  

When:  Saturday, March 12th * 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Where:  Trinity United Methodist Church
              2221 NE Savannah Rd
               Jensen Beach, FL  34957 *  Get directions by clicking HERE.
