Welcome to the Tetbury Computer Shop

Are you comfortable with your PC or laptop? 

We all take them for granted, but can they affect our health?  Well, yes.  A common problem is repetitive Strain Injury or RSI.  Here prolonged use of the keyboard & mouse causes damage within the hand & wrist.  However, good posture, a desk set at the correct height & frequent breaks can help.  Too often we use a desk at the wrong height and do not support the wrists, which can soon tire when left unsupported.  The addition of a wrist rest for the keyboard and mouse can certainly help.

Windows 10. The basics!

Please find my detailed view of Windows 10 in my blogs, but to quickly summarize and simplify what you need or do not need to do:

Windows 7  If you are presently using Windows 7, then you can carry on using your computer until 2020.  For many, if your laptop or PC is already 3 to 5 years old, then if you get another couple of years out of it, you will be doing pretty well.

Windows 8.1  You have until 2023.  For those of you happy with Windows 8 and do not want the look and feel to alter as time goes on, then stick with it.  Windows 10 will be a movable feast in that it could change markedly over the years and you will not be able prevents future updates.  You will be at the mercy of Microsoft as the years go by.

Windows 10  The free upgrade finished back in 2016, but it is still possible to get a free upgrade.  Do get in touch for details.  

Microsoft desktop games such as Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Mah-jong, Chess, Minesweeper and FreeCell are not included, but I can reinstate them for you. 

You will not be able to easily play DVD’s with Microsoft software and the Media Centre will not be available at all, however a media player is still included. 

If you are using the free Office 2010 Starter Edition which includes Word and Excel with Windows 7, this may no longer be available but it can be replaced.

Windows 10 is a significant milestone for Microsoft.  Time will tell as to whether this is a success and the changes that come along in the future are universally welcomed.  Whatever direction Microsoft decides to take Windows 10, we will have to go along for the ride!
