Dear Classmates,

Our Windows 7, and 8.1, Workshop will meet Tuesday September 9 at 7 pm.  After class questions we will demo the following 4 items.

 1. Control Panel.

 2 Views of the Windows 7 Control Panel, the Default view of the is by Category.

Up on the Right, click on the Down Arrow by Category and click on Large or Small Icons.


2. Fix it.

The next time you have trouble you might want to try Fix it.

You click on the Icon you are having trouble with and it ask you;

"What are you trying to do?", and gives several options. Once you select an option it will give you several solutions to try.

The best solutions have a Run Now in Green.


3.                         The Bing Desktop.

(For Windows 7, 8.1, and VISTA)

You can search the web with Bing. Under that, the first Icon is WALLPAPER,  then WEATHER, TOP NEWS, and IMAGES


 To configure the Weather: click on the second icon, over to the right click on Options, under Add a location type in an area code like 40505, then click on the Magnifying glass, now click on the city to highlight it, then click on the + sign.
If you wish to remove a city, on the right, highlight it and click on the – Sign.

Q. I am looking for a file that I believe you gave us. . .it is a video of a young woman and young man doing the boogie woogie to piano music played by a man.  I thought I had put it on my hard drive, but cannot find it. 

If you know the one I am referring to and can send it to me, I surely would be grateful.

My favorite, I play it a lot. They are the best I’ve seen.
