Topic II: Q&A Panel with Jeanne Dyer, Bruce Snyder, Myron Thorner, Frank Weitzman

  • Windows 10 download issues.  Doing the upgrade can be problematic. Make sure to take a “system image” backup of all data, and run all security programs before installing. A better option is to do a clean install.  
  • Windows Media Center will need to be purchased for use on Windows 10.
  • How to move photos from Iphone to printer?  Printer must be “eprint” enabled.  Not offered on older printers.
  • What does it mean “a script is still running”. Answer:  wait for it to finish; if not then then stop it.
  • How frequently should one replace a computer? If properly maintained, it should last many years.
  • My backup drive is filling up, what should I do? Answer: Delete your oldest backups.  

Adjourned at:  310pm
