Basic Tips

Some things to remember:

  • Always be patient while on the computer. It will take some time to grasp how to use a computer, but once you know how, it can be very rewarding.
  • If you cannot figure something out, try Googling (searching) your problem. If that doesn't work, always feel free to ask someone who may know the right answer.
  • Be aware of scams - if something sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true. Don't click on things that seem suspicious.
  • Sometimes you have to pay for things. It is easy to fall into the trap of buying things online, but try to avoid it.
