Basic PC Computer Workshop – Members Only

April 15 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM AEST


Are you unsure about using computers ?
No idea how to Right Click on a mouse ?
Does computer terminology scare you because it has not been explained slowly enough ?
Would you like to go to GSQ more often and make the most of the subscription sites we have ?

This workshop is designed exactly for you.
Learn what a C:/ drive or hard drive is; how do you use a usb stick; Filing systems and directories – they really are like our family trees when explained in a simple way;  start to feel confident about using the genealogical sites at GSQ; When we say Mr Google is our friend, what do we mean ? and how to Right Click a mouse.
When something goes wrong with your computer – what should you do!

There will be a short presentation along with a handout, then a full hands on workshop to help you overcome some of those anxieties you have about using computers.

This workshop is limited to 10 GSQ members only.
It is for members who would like to learn how to use computers, rather than members who are comfortable already.

It is a workshop to help increase your confidence. Come and have some FUN while you learn.
Sorry but this is for Windows based PC’s only and not Mac computers.
We will be using the GSQ Computers, which are Windows 10 Based.

It will be run by Ailsa Corlett and assisted by Rhoda Copeland and Helen Connor

Ailsa has a love of computers and been using them since the 1970’s. Learnt over the years that computers are tools and you need to know how to use them and not be frightened of breaking anything. They are tough!  Have never attended a computer course, everything is self taught, but understands that many people need assistance.
