There was a time when Google was thought of as a Search Engine (Google It!) and Gmail for email – and that was about it! Not anymore! Google Docs, Google Maps, the Google Chrome web browser, Google Calendar are probably the best known today. More recently, you can share your docs and photos with Google Drive – a free online file storage service that lets you share those items across your devices. Improve your photos with Google Photos. Access all these online with your PC. Apps are now available for all your mobile devices as well regardless of operating systems – Android or iOS (Apple).

7pm: Get The Cobwebs Out Of Your Computer

Feeling helpless when your computer is sluggish?  Do you feel even worse when you learn that you must have someone else come in and fix it for you…often at considerable cost?  There's good news!  You can fix most of these problems yourself.  Learn how in this class.  We call it “getting the cob webs out”.  You'll learn there's software available, most of which is free, to clear out those cob webs.  You'll learn that after the first time, applying this software, most issues with poor performance, improve significantly. Do it yourself, with confidence. It's easier than you may think. 

You only need to learn 4 things in this class:
1. Understand what's happening in your PC and why.
2. Where to find free or inexpensive software online to address it.
3. How to apply the software - successfully and safely.
4. How to maintain your computer to keep it running at top performance.
