Computer How To                                    NEW!

Every person uses a computer for different things, and sometimes we know just enough to allow us to use a particular program but other aspects of the computer are sometimes a mystery. If you have specific questions about the computer on topics ranging from downloading programs, security questions, on line shopping or help within specific computer programs, this may be the class for you. There will be no set agenda because we will talk about whatever your issues are. If we cannot help, we will point you to a solution.

Instagram

Instagram is a free, online photo sharing application and social network that was purchased by Facebook in 2012. It allows users to upload photos and short videos through a mobile app. This means that you can use virtually any device to access your account. You can ‘Follow’ your friends and family, or follow a group of people that you admire. Their Instagram posts will show up on your feed. Always review what details you are sharing on any Social Media post so we will show you how to be as safe as possible, use appropriate Hashtags, and simply enjoy.
