This month we take a brief look at some spring cleaning tasks, Windows 10, your workspace and a couple of security reminders.


Spring Cleaning

Over time, most PCs will collect a whole bunch of debris - both physical (dust etc.) and as hidden software clutter.  Do give it a quick dust off now and again, and use one of the readily available screen wipes to remove dust and other marks from the screen - you will be surprised just how dusty that screen gets!

If you are at all unsure about any routine maintenance tasks, why not ask us to come and give your machine a health check and general clean up.


Windows 10

For those users who have yet to upgrade to Windows 10, the opportunity for a free upgrade ends later this year.  It's becoming increasingly easy to install it by accident.  Windows 10 does offer some significant changes and enhancements - especially for Windows 8 and 8.1 users.  Most upgrades that we have seen have gone smoothly with only a few compatibility problems.

If you do decide to do the upgrade, then make sure that all your information is backed up properly before the upgrade runs.  Once it's complete, then check all your critical stuff and make sure it still works OK.


Are you sitting comfortably?

If you spend more than a few minutes at a time sitting in front of your PC, it is important to avoid both back and eye strain by having your chair and working space adjusted correctly.  Ideally you need to be sat comfortably on the chair with you feet flat on the floor and with your eyes level with the top of the screen.  Most office supply outlets will have a range of chairs, footrests and other accessories to choose from.  Please call if you would like any help or advice.
