A computer will work better if it is given time to completely start.
When you start up your computer, give it time to load completely. This means, do not start clicking on keys, mouse or touch screen for a minute or two. It rarely takes longer than a couple minutes but you can always look in the bottom right corner to see if you see all the icons – especially the wireless icon that will look like a small radar signal. Once your profile and apps load, you are ready to get that schoolwork done!
~Slow Down~ Things will work better.
IT'S TIME TO RESTART
Often computers freeze or quit working right.
Sometimes the best solution is to restart your computer. Problems such as the mouse or track pad not working right, a program stops loading or maybe you cannot get an internet connection at school or at home, can be resolved by a restart of your computer. HOWEVER, AND THIS IS IMPORTANT – you do not want to continually restart or do a restart while your computer is in the starting process. This can damage the computer – (contact tech support if a couple restarts do not help). Again, patience will pay off as the system restarts and loads all the necessary apps.
BE CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU CLICK ON OR OPEN
Never open an email unless you know who sent it! VERY IMPORTANT – neve click on a link in an email unless you know who sent it.
Hackers and spammers are on a continuous quest to get into your computer or to get personal information from you. BE VERY CAREFUL AND TAKE TIME to know what you are clicking on in your emails and websites you visit.
