First show of the New year! Welcome! Have a Happy One!
New site CALENDAR to remind us all When we are On!

Front and Center: Windows 10 over Windows 7? To Be Or Not to be?! How?

Windows 7 “Support” ends mid January 2020 
Do Not Panic if Microsoft fills your whole screen with a warning that “Windows 7 will Go Away”
or similar wording. In fact, note but do not click, call, respond or otherwise Interact with ANY such warnings,
most if not all  ARE SCAMS and Microsoft is to be taken to task
for behaving the same way with a Legitimate notice by using a page full of pop up ..

Do Your Own Googling after Closing the Window!
Check the search results to see if an Apple Warning comes from Apple.Com, etc etc…

Upgrade or Install to Windows 10
* Some things that worked in 7 won’t work in 10– earlier Adobe products, for example
Worse, they might work but not correctly.
Do yiur own Research and Talk to the Company.|
Note that any Office version 2007 or nwer seems to move over fine BUT you MAY need to re enter the Products Key.
Free LIBREOFFICE does a sterling job if your MS Office suite   Word/Excel/Access etc Fail
It will natively open all Office formats.
When SAVE time comes be SURE to Save As Office XML not native .ODT otherwise your regular Office users to whom you might send such things will not be able to open the results!

Get a Listing from your machine first using FREE Belarc Advisor /Hardware software inventory

* save anything of value to an external device (Backup)
Get an 8+ GB USB drive and put the Windows 10 Installer/updater in it From Here

New California Consumer Privacy Act of 2020
New California Tel. Caller-ID Anti Spooficin law (Unrelated)

How to slow down some Junk Calls:
Find a Way (!) to get the caller to “Press .1. to Continue” which robocallers will not understand. This is possible in Google Voice & many VOIP systems. Sorry to Be So Vague : )
