About Helpful Tips

Tips, advice and helpful tricks about using your PC, laptop or tablet (or even a smartphone).

All written in plain English, clearly explained for beginners and people who aren’t tech experts.

The best thing to do is sign up to get them by email – you just need to put your name and email address in the box over on the right.

I’ll never share your details with anyone else and you can cancel any time you like.

But I doubt you’ll want to – after all, I get regular emails telling me how much these tips have helped people.

Oh, and if you’ve already signed up to get the emails, you can comment on any of the issues by coming to this website and using the comment link underneath that particular article.

Just remember that it’s not a fully blown technical helpdesk – it’s not for asking about problems you’re having with your PC and expecting a detailed answer of what to do.  It’s really for commenting on something I’ve said – maybe I’ve said X program does something and you want to mention you use it too and it’s great, especially the way it does so-and-so.  Or maybe you want to mention that program Y does the same and you like it because of such-and-such.  Or maybe you just want to say “That helped – thanks!” or just to say “I agree – why don’t Microsoft sort it out!” (Hmm I think that might be a common one)

Anyway, I hope you find the tips useful!
