“Q&A with CIPCUG session 162”

John Weigle   For those of us who sometimes get distracted or forgetful, has anyone developed software that would tell me, for instance, that Microsoft is updating Windows 10 so U won’t shut the computer down by mistake? I try to remember to check every time I start to shut down, but sometimes… It would also be nice to know if my AV program is scanning or something is being downloaded. I’m sure there are some other things we might like to have warnings about.

Today was slightly different, I had to find it to start it. Apparently it is not quite automatic as it was before. Any info on what is going on?

Lisa Toth:  Pages I know had content in the old version of Facebook have no content now.  How can I retrieve my old pages, and how do I find my new content.  I have checked the “recent notes” column that seems to have just about every thing I’ve put in the notes books but not my actual recent adds.
