Computer Owners Group (COG) Special Learning Group (SLG), Wednesday, 9 November, 10.00 am – 12.00 pm

When: COG SLG Wednesday, 9 November, 10.00 am – 12.00 pm

Where: Anvil House, Level 1, Meeting Room 2

What: This is your meeting, so please bring your questions and comments.

Lindsay Rollo will speak about his recent experience with Android and Linux-based USB drives which can be plugged into  standard laptops – and which do not leave any footprints on them.  With this technique, one can bring back to useful life elderly laptops which might otherwise be heading towards the landfill.

Michael Munro will facilitate.

Topics discussed at the last meeting included:
how to speed up slow iPads
problems with Gmail attachments
how to deal with excessive permissions requested by apps
problems with Windows 10 updates
Yahoo/Xtra passwords problems
how to get extra range from routers; and
coping with interruptions when downloading Windows 10 updates.

Special Learning Groups (SLG) are free to all SeniorNet Wellington members.
