Subject: Smoke detectors
I live in Jessamine County and the Fire dept. put them in for me too. They also put in co2
detector too. No charge. I sleep better. Since they were put in years ago the co2 detector
went bad and they replaced it free of charge. Eva
You are lucky, they will not replace our CO2 detectors.

Microsoft is ending support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 next week
Microsoft has set 12 January 2016 as the date when Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 and
10 will longer receive security, compatibility and other technical support.
Internet Explorer 11, which Microsoft has called "the last version of Internet Explorer",
will continue to be supported until an undisclosed date, but it seems obvious that just as Microsoft is keen for Windows users to upgrade to Windows 10 - the company
would also like you to start using Edge.
Windows 8 users are about to be cut off from security updates. When the first
Patch Tuesday of 2016 rolls around on January 12, it will represent the last
batch of updates for Windows 8.
If you're still running Windows 8, it's time to update to Windows 8.1 or Windows
10 or risk exposing your PC to unpatched security risks.

Online Tips: http://www.ckcs.org/joetips.pdf
=======================
IMPORTANT: Joe. A lot of things are
happening all at once.
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 7
1. IF YOU HAVE Windows Essential 2011. You Must Update to
2012. Microsoft will not longer support 2011.
(which includes Windows Live Mail, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker,
etc.)
Download only the programs you want.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/essentials
---------------------------------------------------2. Microsoft is ending support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 today.
Microsoft has set 12 January 2016 as the date when Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 and
10 will longer receive security, compatibility and other technical support.
Internet Explorer 11, which Microsoft has called "the last version of Internet Explorer",
will continue to be supported until an undisclosed date, but it seems obvious that just as Microsoft is keen for Windows users to upgrade to Windows 10 - the company
would also like you to start using Edge. So would I.
To find out what version you have:
Open Internet Explorer: at the top click on Help, then click on About
Internet Explorer, and it will show you the version. This works for the
version of most any program you have.
3. Windows 8 users are about to be cut off from security updates. When the
first Patch Tuesday of 2016 rolls around on January 12, it will represent the last
batch of updates for Windows 8.
If you're still running Windows 8, it's time to update to Windows 8.1 or Windows
10 or risk exposing your PC to unpatched security risks.
Please, Please go to Windows 10.

pronounce the word.

---------------------------------------------------Emailed received on last nights meeting.
Joe, I really enjoyed your presentation last night. Bill Collins had recommended you and the
Society. I realize how much I don't know. As well as Windows 10, I probably should
consider the most basic course. You had mentioned you will send me the necessary things
to look at when I get a new computer. I am going to look today, but will wait to hear from
you. I am sending this email from public library. Margaret
---------------------------------------------------I saw the meeting/ The picture and sound was ok but the computer went black about 7 58
What cause that I wonder. Seems like it wasn't to many there.
Is there a lot of positive feedback on this. That's one is the weather is
bad like tonight you still watch and won't miss a thing,
Stay warm let me know if you got this ok
Charles
---------------------------------------------------Great content. The video and was good, and the framing of the screen and Joe
were great. My feed froze up once during the dancing video for about 30 seconds.
And at the end of class, the sound track got out of sync with the picture, i.e., you
would see Joe mouthing the words and then the sound would follow a few seconds
later. Joe
---------------------------------------------------I chose to stay home and watch the class on computer vs. coming out in the cold.
I watched on my desktop, where I had no interference from tv etc.
It was great to watch although it was hard to follow what you was doing as I couldn’t follow the
arrow moving around.
I could hear Mike Seiler clear when he spoke in the background.
Missed being there though.

Just watched online. It won't work on my IPad but works great on my computer.
I have a question. How do you share a playlist on Spotify? I like the songs you have
on yours and was just wondering if you could share it. I've started one but I think
I've got too many of the same artists.
Thanks and I'll try to get there next month.

---------------------------------------------------Thank you Joe. I could hear you fine and could see you very well. I could not hear when
someone else was talking about the classes this year...got bites and pieces.
Thanks again. Very interesting and I look forward to a follow up e-mail.

========================================
Please remember Windows 8.1 is 88% Windows 7.
These items will be the same in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
1. Printing Options: Portrait, Landscape, Two-sided, print black or
color only, Print Last Page First
2. Folder Options: Single or Double Click, Show all folders, Display
or Hide different files or folders. Make new folders. Show File
extensions like .doc or .jpg.
3. Default Programs, which programs open which File extensions
.doc .jpg etc…
4. OneDrive, Save some Files and Folders there, save space on
your hard drive. Create a link and whoever you send the link, can
open the File or Folder. Great idea if you can use it. I love it. A
great way to use some of the 15 GB of free space on OneDrive.
5. EDGE: Microsoft's new browser, will replace IE someday.
6. Spotify: Now with lyrics so you can sign along.
8. Great things you can do with the Lexington Herald Leader

TIPS.
---------------------------------Q. How do I know if I have a 32 bit or 64 bit Windows?
A. Control Panel, System.
(It also tells you Processor chip speed and amount of RAM.)
32 bit is like a 4 lane highway carrying data, 64 bit is like an 8 lane
highway carrying twice as much data.
---------------------------------Q. How do I add to the Send To menu.
A. Click the Start button and type shell:sendto in the search box,
hit Enter. Click on File, New, Shortcut. Browse until you find the
program and click on it.
---------------------------------SNIPPING TOOL (greatest thing since sliced bread)
No matter where you are, Internet, word document, email you can
draw a rectangle around what you want and save it as a .jpg file.
Type Snip in the Start Search box, then hit Enter, left click and
drag to capture any part of the screen. Then click on the Floppy

Dear Classmates,
You know from the questions and answers, you all are really
advanced computer users. What makes me feel really good is that
most of you help others with their computer problems.
Take your time reading this email there is a ton of stuff in it.
If you have any questions, please email: [email protected]
Take care,

-----------------------------Classmate questions:
SCREENSHOTS: To take a full screen photo, Hold down the
Windows Key (bottom left of keyboard with 4 squares) and hit the
Print Screen key at the upper right. The screen will go dark for a
second while it takes a picture.
Control Panel, Bing, Belarc Advisor, YouTube

To see the photos go to Pictures, and click on the folder named
Screenshots.
-------------------------------Q. When I try to open attachments on our Windows 7 computer, it
tells me that the security settings don’t allow the opening of that
attachment.
A. Open Windows Live Mail: (your program may be similar.)
Click File, Options, Safety Options, then click on the Tab Security
and configure like the one above.
--------------------------------
1. Printing Options: Using Epson XP-810 printer.
Your printer may have the same options: open a WORD Document,
click on Print: Use the down arrows for all the options.
Control Panel, Bing, Belarc Advisor, YouTube
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 44
Other Printing Options: Print current page, Print both on sides, print black or
color only, Print Last Page First.
Question from a classmate: How do you print in black only.
TO PRINT IN BLACK ONLY: OPEN WORD DOCUMENT: Click on File, Print,
Printer Properties, Advanced, put a check mark in Black/Grayscale, click on
Save Settings. Now every thing you print will be in Black.

4. OneDrive:
Save some Files and Folders there, save space on your hard drive.
Create a link and whoever you send the link, can open the File or
Folder. Great idea if you can use it. I love it.
A GREAT WAY TO USE ONEDRIVE.
The big advantage of using OneDrive is that you have 15 GB of
free space and you can drag 20MB, 50MB or larger files or folders
there and share them. It also saves space on your hard drive.
VIDEOS take 30 MB a Minute.
You can use OneDrive to share photos, documents, and other
files.
First click on File Explorer in Windows 8.1. OneDrive comes with
Windows 8.1
It should show all your files and folders and at the top left show
OneDrive.
Drag the file or folder up to OneDrive.
Right click the file or folder and scroll down to Share with, click
on OneDrive.
Click on Get a link
Control Panel, Bing, Belarc Advisor, YouTube
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 49
Click on Create link, it will create a link, then click on Shorten link.
Highlight the link, then Copy and paste the link into your email and
anyone you send the link to can open the file or folder.
Caution, when you drag a file or folder from your computer to
OneDrive it actually moves them but you can always move them
back by dragging them to where they came from, or just make a
copy of the file or folder and you will have it in both places.
I drag mine up to OneDrive and leave it there, it leaves me more
room on my hard drive.
I created this sample folder: http://1drv.ms/1LFia4u for every
one to use.
The recipients that use the link should click on the first photo and
then click on Play slide show.
If they want a copy of the photos, documents, or other files or
folders then highlight what they want and click on Download, then
at the bottom click on Save.

Goodbye Windows 8, Hello Windows 10
The familiar Windows Desktop is back, only better.
These are my Windows 10 screens, I have been using Windows 10 Beta since
October 1, 2014. Most of us will receive the Windows 10 Home version. Your
Windows 10 Desktop will look like this only it will have your icons on the Windows
Desktop and your icons in the Taskbar. It will be very familiar to you and so user
friendly.
In the Taskbar you will have a few new icons which will make computing must
faster and easier.
On the bottom left is the Start button, Search Box, a microphone icon, click
on microphone icon and ask Cortana a question, or type in the Search Box.

The next icon is called Task View and will show Apps that are open. Click on
the crazy e and it will open EDGE.
Windows 10 has a Desktop Screen, just like Windows 7 -- only better. Windows 10
boots straight to the desktop.
Internet Explorer is taking a backseat to a new Web browser EDGE, which is
faster than a speeding bullet. Microsoft's Siri-like Cortana voice assistant you
can talk to her and she talks back. If you ask her "who is your Daddy", she may
answer "Bill Gates".

Taskbar. You might notice that both screens have the Taskbar.
--------------------------------------------------------------You can still use your old programs like Windows Live Mail, Photo Gallery, Quicken,
Word, and so on just like always.
Microsoft will automatically send out the latest fixes and updates to users
throughout the month and not just on Tuesdays.
When you first download Windows 10 do a Windows update.

To Open EDGE: Click on this crazy EDGE,
in your Taskbar.
left click the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner, then click on Settings.
Select options offered. Then click on View advanced settings and select.
When on a web page you want to add to your Favorites, click on the Star at

To show the Favorites Bar, left click the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner,
then click on Settings. Move the Show the favorite bar to On.
The great thing about Edge is the items in the Favorites or Favorites Bar is

closes the other. Click on the Task View icon in the Taskbar to confirm.
---------------------------------------------------------------To Remove any web site from the Favorites or Favorites Bar, Right click it and
click on Remove.
-------------------------------1. Edge is tightly wired into Cortana, the company’s virtual personal assistant
service. “Cortana is able to infer what you need.”
2. It will offer a “reading view,” which strips away all the menus, ads and
other distracting elements that run alongside the text.
3. A user can make notes, draw a circle, or highlight directly on a website, and
save it to Favorites.
Open EDGE, go to your web site:
On the upper right click on the square with a pen in it. Now on the upper left,
blue triangle icon, hold the left click on your mouse and draw a circle around
the item you want. Left click the next icon and you can use the highlighter.
After you do this click on the square icon on the upper right and it will save it
in Favorites. Or you can use the Snipping Tool and email it. I drew a circle
around Trump and highlighted his name.

How to use the Snipping Tool on the Start Screen
by Mike Seiler:
1. On the desktop open the Snipping Tool. Click on the Cancel button
on the Snipping tool window.
2. Now go to the Start window. Press the CTRL + PRT SC keys. (i.e.
the Control key plus the Print Screen key).
3. Your mouse cursor turns into the "+" symbol and the screen gray's
out. You are now ready to snip the part of the screen you want to
capture.
This method works for any app (program) you open from the Start
screen. Also, these steps can be used to capture any drop down windows
you might want to capture on the Desktop or the Start screen.

Q. Joe, Can you help?
My computer screen keeps showing this message:
"An unknown application is trying to change your default search engine.
Changing these settings controls the way Internet Explorer treats search queries.
A. Do a System Restore to a date when this was not happening.

System Tools and System Restore Review *
Dear Classmates,
We had a good crowd and a great bunch of questions and answers.
Thank you all. See you in September.
12 months of Windows Tips: http://www.ckcs.org/joetips.pdf
Please Remember there is no meeting in AUGUST.
Take care,
Joe Isaac
======================================
In Windows 7 Vista, and XP:
(The globe at the extreme left side of your Taskbar is the Start button.)
1. Go to Start, in the search box type Disk Cleanup, and hit Enter.
I put a check mark in all the boxes, then click OK. You'll save hundreds of
megabytes. You should do this every month or so.
2. Go to Start, in the search box type Defragment and hit Enter. at the bottom
left click on Analyze disk and it will tell you if you need to Defrag. Defrag
every 2 or 3 months. It takes an hour or so.
Remember: Uninstall any programs you no longer want, and Delete any files
(documents, photos, emails, etc.) you no longer want, then do Disk Cleanup,
then Defrag, in this order.
In XP go to: Start, Control Panel (classic view) click on Add or Remove
Programs.
In Windows 7 and Vista: Start, type Programs and Features in the Start Search
box.
If you click on the tabs at the top it will arrange the items in alphabetical or
chronological order, click again and it will reverse them.
3. Go to Start, in the search box type System Information and hit Enter.
It will tell you more than you want to know about your computer.
4. Go to Start, in the search box type System Restore and hit Enter.
Control Panel, Bing, Belarc Advisor, YouTube
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 102
(When you computers starts screwing up, restart it and if that does not fix it,
use System Restore, go back a few days when your computer was working
OK and restore to that date.) This does not affect your documents or email,
etc, only your system files, etc.
Restore points are automatically created every time you download Windows
updates.
One of the nice things about Windows 7 and VISTA is that you don't have to
remember where System Information, System Restore, Action Center are
located, you just type it in Start Search and hit Enter and it takes you there.
Fantastic.
5: Go to Start, in the search box type Action Center and hit Enter. Click on the
down arrow of Security and it will show what safety features are turned on.
Like Firewall, Virus Protection, etc..
There is also a Troubleshooting Icon that will help you Find and Fix Problems.
6. Go to Start, in the search box type Essentials and hit Enter and it will bring
up Microsoft Security Essentials. On the right are Scan Options that include
Quick, Full, or Custom. You need to run a virus scan every month or so. I run
Full scan when I first get a computer and Quick scans after that. If my
computer acts funny I'll do a Full scan anytime. Full scans take a long time
and you have to reset your Power Options to 2 hours.
Most antivirus software provides two different functions.
A. Real time virus protection. It listens for virus type activity at all times. If it
detects something, it will identify the issue and remove the virus.
B. Full system scan. Those types of scans will actually inspect every file on
your system for an infection. If it finds an infected file, it will handle the virus
appropriately.
Update, History, and Settings should be viewed here.
----------------7. Go to Start, in the search box type Power Options, and hit Enter. On the
right of your checked plan, click on Change plan setting, I set mine to turn off
display 10 minutes and put the computer to sleep in 15 minutes.
8. To configure the icons on the right side of the Taskbar (this is called the
Notification area).
Go to Start, in the search box type Notification area, and hit Enter. On the
right side use the down arrows to make your selection.
Control Panel, Bing, Belarc Advisor, YouTube
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 103
9. Too many people have too many programs starting up, this slow down your
computer and uses your resources.
Go to Start, in the search box type msconfig then hit Enter, at the top, click
on Startup, now go down through this list and uncheck programs that you do
not want to start up everytime you turn on your computer, you can always
access these programs by typing there name in the Start Search Box.
When you finish you should have no more that 4 boxes checked. Be sure your
antivirus program is checked.
Don't be afraid to uncheck items, you can always go back and put the check
mark back in. Only your Antivirus, like Symantec, McAfee, AVG etc. and your
AntiSpyware programs needs to be there plus Microsoft item plus any other
program you know and want to open at Start Up.
Every 3 or 4 months you need to go back and check this again. When you
install new programs some have the audacity to put them in Start up without
your permission.
(HOT TIP: Open Google, type in the file name you want to uncheck, it will have
an .exe ending and Google will tell you what it is.) If you make a mistake just
go back and put the check mark back in.
When you Start up your computer again, if you get a dialog box: Put a check
mark in and click on OK.
------------------------------------------------------------Contrary to what you have been told over and over, it is a good idea to
unsubscribe to spam you receive.
------------------------------------------------------------------I know a lot of you are helping other people with their computers and that
makes me feel really good.
------------------------------------------------------------------In Windows 7:
Search Box.
To get to the Send to folder, paste in the following in the Start
%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
Let's say you wanted to add Notepad to the Send To menu. In the Start Search box
type in Notepad, then RIGHT click on it, left click on Send to: Desktop (create
shortcut) now drag the Notepad shortcut to the Send to Folder.
While there you may want to delete some items, just highlight it and hit the delete
key on the keyboard.
MORE SEND TO OPTIONS:

In Windows 7 hold the Shift key down when you right-click a file or folder you'll get
about 20 options instead of 7.

---------------------------------------------------Windows 95 is 20 years old.
Twenty years ago, Microsoft changed the world by
releasing Windows 95 on August 24, 1995.
I was at Best Buy when the doors opened at midnight,
bought Windows 95 came straight home and installed it.
That was the year I started teaching at CKCS.
Control Panel, Bing, Belarc Advisor, YouTube
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 111
Windows 95 required a 386DX processor, 4MB of RAM, and 55MB of
free space.
Windows 10 requires 1 GHz processor, 2 GB RAM 16 GB of free
space.
A GB is a thousand times bigger than a MB.
---------------------------------------------------The familiar Windows 7 Desktop is back, only better.
These are my Windows 10 screens,
Your Windows will have your icons on the Desktop and Taskbar.
In the Taskbar you will have a few new icons which will make
computing must faster and easier.
On the bottom left is the Start button, Search Box, a microphone
icon, click on microphone icon and ask Cortana a question, or
type in the Search Box. The next icon is called Task View and will
show Apps that are open. Click on the crazy e and it will open
EDGE.

Windows 10 has a Desktop Screen, just like Windows 7 -- only better.
Windows 10 boots straight to the desktop.

This is Windows 10 Start Screen, It has a list of your most used
apps, most visited folders and recently added software. If this list
is not there, click on the 4 lines at the top left. Power button on
the bottom left (turn computer off)
Bottom left, click on the 4 lines or All apps and you will see all
your apps in a single list. Right click an App and select Pin to
Taskbar, Pin to Start.
To toggle between the Windows Desktop Screen and the Start
Screen, hit the Window key on the Keyboard or left click the Start
button on the left side of the Taskbar. You might notice that both
screens have the Taskbar.
--------------------------------------------------------------You can still use your old programs like Windows Live Mail, Photo
Gallery, Quicken, Word, and so on just like always.

SUGGESTIONS FOR YOUR NEW Windows 10 Computer.
(The speed of your new computer is going to be a lot faster than your
old one.)
Processor: Latest generation Intel core i3, i5, i7 processor or AMD
equivalent.
Memory: 4 to 8GB DDR3
Ports: Should have both USB3 and USB2 Ports (USB3 is 10 times
faster than USB2)
Hard Drive: 500GB or 1TB

Dear Joe, I have a question about the mouse and scrolling which I
could not find in your TIPS.
I used to be able to use the scroll roller to move one line or item at a
time. I now find it moves 4-5 rows or items at a time. Is there a setting
where I can go back to just one row scrolling?
Thanks so much!! I happily stay a devoted member but live 40 miles
away so have not been able to come to many SIGS. However I like the
live streams and especially the newsletters.
A. Glad you watch the class on the Internet and like the newsletters.

down the computer. But it isn't susceptible to a power failure.

This information is for those people like myself, who was afraid of
downloading Windows 10 thinking they may mess it up, here is how I got
Windows 10 downloaded on my computer:
Last July the day Windows 10 came out, I was in the STAPLES store on
Harrodsburg road, they said they were downloading Windows 10 for free, I
immediately went home and got my computer, they did the downloading for
me for free, plus they walked me through the changes to get me familiar with

BIG TIP: Send to:
Holding down the Shift key as you right-click a file or folder will
add an absolute ton of new folder locations to the basic Send to
menu.
Tweaking the Send To menu
What's that, you say? None of the stock Send to options offer the
ability to shuffle your files to the locations you commonly use?
Force the issue!
First, create shortcuts to the folder locations you're like to add to
the Send To menu by right-clicking them, then selecting Send to >
Desktop (create shortcut). Once that's done, open Windows
Explorer, then type shell:sendto in the location bar at the top,
followed by Enter. You'll be brought to the location that holds your
Send To options; just drag and drop in the shortcuts to the folders
you want to add to the tool.
My best keyboard action: Erase the past
Control + Z. The keyboard shortcut undoes your last action, or last
several actions. Remember this one it is PRIME.
Add mouse-friendly checkboxes to icons View, Left click Item
check boxes.
Activating icon checkboxes lets you select multiple files to
manage simultaneously, without having to hold down the Ctrl
button as you click each one.
Got a file or template you open often? Pin it to the Jump List by
clicking the pin icon to the right of the file name in the Jump List
itself.

Q. I received an email with an attachment and could not open it.
100 Questions and Answers
Joe's Tips and Reviews
Page 202
A. To open an attachment you must have the program that can
open it. If it has a .pps file extension, and you have the PowerPoint
program on your computer. Microsoft has free viewers for WORD,
EXCELL, and POWERPOINT.
If you're going to make a slide show, Microsoft's free Movie Maker
is the best. You can incorporate, movies, photos, music, text and it
is easy to use and you can download Movie Maker from
www.Microsoft.com You can also make a DVD that will play on a
computer, you need another program to make a DVD that plays on
a TV.
When you are having problems, restart your computer, if that does
not work maybe System Restore, or go is Google or Bing. No
matter the problem, if it is Word, Outlook Express, Internet
Explorer.
You can find it quicker in Google and Bing than in Microsoft itself.

A. If you highlight certain portions of a page go to FILE, PRINT,
click on SELECTION, it will only print what you have highlighted.
Q. That’s it! I knew it was an easy fix if I could just find the damn
thing again. It is in the task bar. Now maybe you can help with

uncheck Underline then click OK, OK.

SCREEN SAVER vs. POWER OPTIONS:
Go to Start > Control Panel (classic view), click on Power Options.
In Power Options: Set your: Turn off monitor: in 10 minutes. Turn
off your hard disks: in 15 minutes.
Please do not use a screen saver it wears out your monitor,
increases you electric bill, and pulls lint through your computer.
A well-equipped PC running at full steam will burn from 200 to 300
watts. You'll conserve most by using Power Options. This is much
better than running a screen saver.
