    Win 10 and Seniors

    I can't agree with the idea that seniors are not a tech savvy generation. Why not? A senior is just as intelligent as a younger person. And a young person can be just as computer-illiterate as an older person.

    The most valuable skill that a computer user of any age needs to have is the ability to backup. With regular backups, computer problems are an inconvenience but never a crisis.

    With Windows 10 in particular, computer users of all ages need to learn how to avoid being upgraded to Windows 10. This knowledge is available on the web for you to teach. For most people, installing the GWX Control Panel or Never10 ends that problem for

    So the one-two solution to avoid getting stuck with Windows 10 is:

    • Restore a backup from before the upgrade.
    • Install the utility to avoid the upgrade.

    It's time for seniors to stop convincing themselves - or letting other people convince them - that they're too old to learn.

  3. No support for senior citizens

    Hi! I'm a senior! Here's a tip I give to seniors in my retirement village.

    While hoping down CTRL tap the + key ! To make the font larger! Tap the - key to make the font smaller. Let me know if that works for you! It will work well while you are here on the forum.
