PSRC’s Technology Lab offers free help with your digital devices. Our proficient and patient volunteers are familiar with Apple, Windows, and Android devices, and they will be happy to help you with your laptop computer, tablet, smart phone, or eBook reader. They can also show you how to search for information on the internet, use email, format a document, set up a spreadsheet, or prepare a presentation. And we have desktop computers you can use whenever our offices are open. Registration is encouraged; there is no fee.
The Tech Lab staff also offers classes frequently — check our calendar for upcoming classes.
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.
