The StrawBerry Ridge Computer & Tablet Club meets on the third Thursday of the month at the Activity Center. The purpose of our club is to offer support to other users, solve computer-related problems and learn new things. We will be giving instructions on tablets and IPADS starting at 6:00PM as well as giving individualized help to those who bring laptops. At 7:00PM we turn our focus to computers. All residents of StrawBerry Ridge are welcome to join, and there is no fee.
IOS 10 is expected to have many great features when it comes time to update. Some of the things to expect are the totally overhauled Messages, receiving water damage warnings, Siri updates and a brand new lock screen. Here are some other things to look forward to: #1. Changes to your Lock Screen. With iOS 10, you'll be able to customize your Lock screen so you can have quicker access to the apps you use the most. #2. See what's on your computer from your phone. If your surfing session was abruptly ended on your computer, open up Safari on your phone and there your link is. Like magic. #3. iOS 10 can tell you where you parked your car. I repeat, your iPhone can now remember and remind you exactly where you parked your car. #4. GIF keyboard.
Now you won't need to download a third-party app to send fun GIFs to
your friends and family. They will be built into the Messaging app. #5. The photos app will make a video of your favorite pictures.
The section is called Memories and it puts together a fun video of all
your great snaps from a specific album or certain time period. #6. You can delete default apps which wasn't possible in the past, but now Apple is letting you get rid of the ones you don't use, once and for all, without hassle. #7. Delete all of your notifications at once.
Before, you could delete all notifications for one app at once. Now,
you can delete all your notifications from all apps with one swipe.
Since Microsoft is no longer updating Windows Live Mail (WLM,) you might find it easier to switch to another email client and save frustration. WLM has been getting slower and slower while taking forever to process one command. And it seems to be getting incompatible with GMail as well. You might want to try EM Client which will handle two email address for free. (I have three, so I set GMail to collect my other email, and that makes it easy to use EM Client.) If you have a Google Calendar, it will download into EM Client. And other than losing the RSS Feeder, it has everything else that WLM does. You can download it at http://www.emclient.com/download. Be sure to click on the FREE version, not the trial version.
EaseUS Todo can be downloaded here: http://www.todo-backup.com/download/ It is suggested that once you download and install this program, first go into TOOLS and CREATE an EMERGENCY DISK. You will also need an external hard drive with enough space to be able to accomodate the size of the backup.
