TIPS & TRICKS 

  • Restart Your Devices Weekly – Restarting your computer, tablet, and smart phone every week will help keep them running trouble-free
  • Updates are Important! – Don’t ignore the updates that Microsoft, Apple, and Google sent to your Windows, Mac, iPhone, and Android mobile devices. They are not only important features; they also fix security “holes” that keep you safe.
  • New Snip and Sketch Tool – Microsoft is replacing its snipping tool with a snip and sketch app that lets you select and edit screen captures easily.

Key Tips for Zoom Meetings:

  • Click the Zoom link in the invitation to familiarize yourself with the controls. This link is located under the Join Zoom Meeting heading in the invitation.
  • If you have trouble with audio or video on Zoom, please do not give up! You can always use the conference call option in the invitation. “Dialing In” is not ideal, but it will still help you stay connected.
  • Try to remember to mute your microphone when you are not speaking — and “un-mute” yourself when you’d like to speak. This will cut down on the interference and background noise.
  • Use the chat feature to ask questions and connect with others.
  • When possible, good Zoom etiquette calls for you to use video. The power of this technology is the ability to “see” one another and promote connection. Unless there is a compelling reason to not use video (beyond, “I’m having a bad hair day”), please be sure to click “start video.”

Remember — our tech team is here to help — fill out your request HERE or email tech@princetonsenior.org and provide your name, contact telephone, and nature of your question.
