Open Forum Notes 12-26-2013

We covered a number of topics as the questions came in. Spent a few minutes talking about the standard window and how to move it around and resize it. How to double click the title bar to toggle between full size and restore size. How to click in the upper left corner an pop up a menu. And now to press Alt+F4 to close the window.

Talked about using Skype and how to install it. Showed my Skype screen and  answered questions about using it.

We were asked how to remove a printer. Showed how to print up the printers windows, right-click an remove a printer. This does not remove it from Programs. Use an uninstall program to do that; the one that is in Control Panel or in CCleaner or in Glary Utilities.

Suggested using Dropbox to get pictures from a phone (iPhone or Android) to your PC. Install on the PC first, then download the app for the phone and set it up with the same credentials (username and password) as the PC. Now even you take a picture it will be sent to the Dropbox and then when you sign on to your computer it will be downloaded to it. Here is the link to download it:

Spent a lot of time on the apps I use to maintain my computer. Here is the paper I wrote back in November: The only change is that I am using the defrag in Glary Utilities instead of Defraggler. It seem to run a lot faster.

I suggested to all to take Ron's maintenance class on Tuesday from 2-4.

We also looked at Locknote to keep a password protected note. I use it for my passwords so they are all in one place and protected instead of being in a Word file called passwords! Here is a link to download that program:
