Windows 10
Basic Training

Monday, May 2nd,  2 to 3:30 pm
presented by Norm Galloway

This will be a Windows 10 Introduction Class. It will cover everything you need to know to start using Windows 10. It assumes you have been successfully using Windows XP, 7, or 8. This is not intended to be a “hands on” training session but rather an introduction to the features of Windows 10 and a chance to ask some questions. You will be given online tutorials that you may use at home to reinforce the material that is shown in the class. This class assumes that you have already installed Windows 10 or will be attending a Windows session given by Jolyn Bowler on the 2nd Tuesday of each month to learn about how to do the upgrade. This introduction will be repeated in June or July (TBD). . Registration is required and the class size is limited to 60.

Class size will be limited to 60 people, so reservations are required!

A great starting point for those of us who don't know what we don't know about computers. If you haven't attended one of these sessions yet, come and learn more about the Computer Club..  Please let Jolyn know if you plan to attend.   jolyn.bowler@gmail.com

Member Warning!

HHICC Emails – Do Not Unsubscribe

The club communicates with members by emails about our Weekly News, the Island Computing Monthly Newsletter, all the invitations to our education groups, classes and presentations, as well as your membership renewal information.

Our emails are sent from the premier email marketing service called MailChimp, and we therefore abide by the US Federal Trade Commissions Can-Spam Act rules and regulations with no exceptions (click here for details).

When you "unsubscribe" to Mailchimp, you are literally turning off all communications from HHICC.

Bottom line, Do Not Unsubscribe unless you truly do not want any emails from HHICC.

Member Warning!

HHICC Downloading Tip

Do somDo some research before simply downloading. Download and install software only from websites you know and trust. If you are downloading a program or other piece of software, it is always advisable to download it from the developer's site as opposed to a download service. However, even developers many times offer free programs or add-ons, and are compensated by other companies for installing tool bars, changing search engines, home pages, etc. Read the information during the download process. Beware of checked boxes that will download and install things that you just don’t want and/or can infect your browser with pop ups, malware and adware.
Ask HHICC volunteers for help, Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, or call 843-842-4475.

Help for the iPad

Here is a neat 30 minute video introduction to the latest iPads. This video addresses many of the issues that both new and experienced iPAD users might experience, such as
- Resolve Freeze - Hard Reset
- Multitasking - double clicking home button shows multiple apps that are running
- Apple TV mirrors iPAD on your TV
- Camera tip - don't use shutter button, Vol+ acts as a shutter without moving the iPAD
- Settings
- Battery Life
- Google Chrome rather than Safari
- Email
- Print

Call for Volunteers - Resource Center Substitutes!

Many of you are familiar with the Resource Center. It’s the place you go, call, or come to when you have a PC or Mac question or problem. Our volunteers do their very best to help members with their PCs, Macs, software or hardware. Now we need your help. Please consider adding your name to our Resource Center Substitute List. Our substitutes fill in for the Resource Center Volunteers when they can’t be there…I mean everyone is entitled to take a vacation, right?

The Resource Center is open M-F, in two shifts, 10 AM-1 PM & 1-4 PM, with two volunteers per shift. You would be with a regular volunteer, helping members, and learning along the way. In addition, we will be instituting a training session so that you’ll be able to “hit the ground running.”

If you are interested, even if you only have one day of the week when you might be available, please contact Linda Jackson for more details at Volunteer.Coordinator@HHICC.org
