Can I Safely Refuse Windows 10 Upgrade?

Dear Computer Lady,

I have the Windows 7 operating system on my laptop which is at least 5 years old. It does not have a touch screen. I’ve received a message box on my desktop from Microsoft regarding a free download of Windows 10.

I do not have a smart phone or tablet, and I do not want to download an operating system designed for those devices and touchscreens unless I have no choice — e.g. Microsoft will no longer be issuing updates for Windows 7.

Can I safely refuse the upgrade to Windows 10?

Thanks in advance for your (hopefully) reply.

Stop Email Sounds

Dear Computer Lady,

I have an iPad Air 2 and a computer desktop with AOL for my e-mail.

I have turned off all sound for my settings on my iPad. For my e-mail on AOL, I have also turned off the setting for receiving e-mail. However, every e-mail that I receive, my iPad still “dings”.

My iPad shows me that all the sound is turned off!

What can I do to stop the sound?

Thank you so much for all your help all these years! Kathy Read More…

How To Update Chrome

Dear Computer Lady,

I have had a message on my laptop saying the administrator has disabled the update for Chrome.

Since I am the administrator I would like to enable the updates. Looking at Forum entries has been very disheartening as there are so many having similar problems and the advice is just too techno for this (very) senior lady.

Can you make some suggestions please?

Thanks a lot, Aussie Rose Read More…

How To Backup To External Hard Drive

Dear computer lady,

I bought an external hard drive and don’t understand how to back up my computer.

Do I just plug it into a usb and it starts backing everything up or do I have to do something else?

How To Organize Playlists

Dear Computer Lady,

I have Win7 on my PC. Is there a way to manually organize files the way I want them instead of alphabetically?

I have several MP3 playlists that I want to organize in the order I want to hear them. I can do that in iTunes but when I copy those lists to my PC in order to download them to something like my GPS on my motorcycle, they are listed alphabetically.

Thank you, Davida Read More…
