President’s Newsletter June
is a new update for windows 10 that does not automatically
update. If you have missed the link you may download from window
10 download centre. It is a large download of about 3 Gigabytes,
so it may take some time the IT team has approved its download.
As club computers have Deep Freeze protection this upgrade
cannot be installed.
3 has finished and Term 4 classes are now on notice board there
are vacancies so please enrol and attend. These classes are
important for you to participate in and show support. Again I
must remind all members these leaders are volunteers, who give
up their own time to teach. It is a disappointment to them if
class attendance is poor.
has been brought to my attention that some members do not like
the format I use for this newsletter and that it is not using
Windows Word correctly. I use this format for reasons that are
too long to write or take up your time with. Except to say it is
in my opinion Senior Friendly. To the members offended Block or
Do Not Open easy solution instead of sending me Emails on how I
should format my newsletter.
new printers are installed and operating, The company installer
called back a week later to run some test picture to check all

remember if you have problems at home with your computer, you
can ring me for advice while you are sitting looking at the
problem. I may not be able to solve it there and then, but will

to do or learn and install on your computer. Other people can
make suggestions but the final choice is yours.
not be afraid to try something or press a key or proceed, as if
something goes wrong it can be undone. That is why very young
children learn Smart Phones IPads Tablets and smart TV. They are
not afraid of what will happen. Learn from our grandchildren, it
is their time to shine.
club is also thinking of installing Microsoft Office 2016 as
Office 2007 now installed is 10 years old and even Office 2010
is 7 years old. In computer years that is far too old to keep up
with computer advancement, and one of our objects in the club is
to teach seniors the computer technology available. This does
not mean you have to automatically upgrade but you should now be
on Office 10. I know that it is hard to learn new Office
Programs, as like an old pair of slippers it is hard to throw
them away. But things wear out and so do old programs - and to
open and read word attachments in correspondence and Emails you
need to update.
