The Windows Control Panel and Settings: Working with Your Software and Hardware in Win 10, 8 and 7

Take Charge of Your Machine!

It's Not So Hard!
He Knows What He is Doing

I (Working Computers) will be giving a talk at the Kinnelon Library on 
January 25, 2017 from 7 PM to 8:30 PM
to discuss Windows System Admin with the tools that come with the Operating System, mainly:

The Windows Control Panel

Most Windows users already know something about the Control Panel, and some of the admin tools located there, but haven't walked through the roster of utilities and may not understand what they are for. Next Wednesday, Jan. 25,  we are going to fix some of that with a walk through the most (to me) useful. They fall into 2 Groups -- those that Control The OS Software and those that Control Hardware and Both.

They are:

Administrative Tools
Device Manager
Devices and Printers
Display
File Explorer Options
Indexing Options
Network and Sharing Center
Personalization
Programs and Features
Recovery
Sound
System
Taskbar and Navigation
User Accounts

I have deliberately left out other items which may be useful from time to time but which are either accessed less frequently, less critically, or handled with other applications.

We will be discussing Adding Hard Disks, Setting Up Disk Backups, Working with your Networks and Routers, Printers, Display, and Audio, as well as File System and Windows Explorer display defaults and Customizing the Taskbar and working with User Accounts.

Shortly after the talk we will publish the talk with slides!

We will be happy to discuss problems that you have with your individual machines, if they are fairly brief, and we will have a discussion period at the end. Feel free to bring your laptop.

Do give Kim Christian at the Kinnelon Library to sign up at 973 838 1321 and/or email her at 
kim.christian@kinnelonlibrary.org.

Thanks, and hope to see you there -- it's been a while!
