Q&A with CIPCUG Session 209

Announcement:  Death of John Weigle

Ray Escobedo   How can I block pop up ads that appear on right bottom side of windows 10 computer. They seem to be from chrome google ktla.com.

Ray Escobedo   My Samsung laser started printing pages in landscape instead of portrait in spite of correct instructions in the settings on Window 10 computer.

Lisa Toth   I read a page called the daily spruce.  Today the page had a list of things to do 10 minuets at a time to organize.  Organize your social media in one place. Move your Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Linkedin, and Instagram account streams to Hootsuite.  What is Hootsuite?  What do you know about it?

Andy Toth   It appears that OneDrive is consuming my computer drive. There are two types of notations in the status column next to a folder or a file, a cloud or a check mark. I appears that the check mark is consuming space on the drive even though my documents folder is only 200mb and does not have a …\Documents\OneDrive folder. I noticed this consumption after I uploaded a large portion of  my music library to the cloud and all those folders/files were checked. I only have 20GB remaining on the drive. Everything I uploaded from this computer is checked or synced. I do not have ‘always keep on this computer’ checked for any folders file. Is there some way to uncheck/unsync folders and files so they are only in the cloud.  I want to keep everything but a few hundred MB of files in the cloud.

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 185

Sandy Tsutsui-Trujillo   While in Las Vegas some fast talking guy gave me a “free” screensaver. I agreed as mine had 3 cracks. I got suspicious because he asked if I did banking from my phone and he put his next to mine. He was startled when I said no don’t. Was I correct to be suspicious?

Lisa Toth   How do I pull down files from OneDrive?  How can I go to OneDrive and see what is there?  It seems there may be a lot of stuff that is not on my computer any more.

Sandy Tsutsui-Trujillo   How can I protect my data in the future?

Tony Pizza   I thought I’d give Edge a try instead of Chrome. But it would sometimes close without warning, and once it hung up using massive resources so that the computer barely responded. Had to use task manager to close it.  How are Vivaldi and Opera? Or another browser?

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 176

Lisa Toth   When Andy was trying to prepare my computer somehow he uninstalled Windows office 365.  When log into OneDrive, it says I need to associate a program with the file. I have no idea how to do this.

Fred Krueger   I have been trying to speed up my computer by cleaning out things I do not use or need. Do you have any suggestions for me and anyone that might also be interested?

Q&A with CIPCUG Session 173

Lisa Toth   I thought I had successfully transferred my documents to OneDrive but a lot of stuff did not go. Mostly in the documents file.  I don’t want or need everything but there is enough that it would take a long time to open each one and save it to the cloud.  I have an external drive and I am thinking I should put everything on that and then do it from there with the drive attached to my surface.

Lisa Toth   With my tablets, I would press the on off button just enough to turn off the screen. I’ve done this a few times with the surface and today it occurred to me that may not be good for it.. Any thoughts?

Lisa Toth   Office 365.  We have it.  When the Surface Pro 7 came, it came with office not 365.  Andy uninstalled it from my Toshiba so he could install it on my Surface.  This immediately meant I don’t have email etc.  Now we are wondering if we need to uninstall the office suite that is on the Surface before we install 365.

Lisa Toth   Many of my folders in the cloud appear to be empty and should not be.
