Tackle Your Technophobia With These Simple Solutions
Even in the age of technology, there is still an overwhelming amount of people who still refuse to use the new tech on the market. This may be for a number of reasons, one being that they are worried about their personal information being out on the internet for anyone to see. Or, it could be that they are worried about getting hacked and having someone steal all of the files on their computer. Most simply, it could just be that they aren’t aware of how to use the tech and what to do when things go wrong. Here are some of the simple solutions that you can follow to help tackle your technophobia.
Learn The Secrets Of Deletion
You might have deleted something important that you need and now you can’t find a way to get it back. There are a few ways that you can get it back, the most simple being that when you delete something, it will first go into your recycle bin. You can go in there and click on restore, and your file will go back to its original location. However, if you have deleted your recycle bin after your file went in there, it becomes a little more complicated. You are going to need to take your computer back in time to access the secret files. This sounds a bit strange to those who have never done it but what you need to do is restore your computer to an earlier time, and you will find these listed in your settings. Alternatively, if you mark ‘show hidden files’ in admin, you will see past versions of files including deleted documents.
Pop-ups can be annoying, and if you’re a technophobe, they might even be a little scary if you’ve already read about some of the viruses that these ads can carry. All you need to do to avoid this is to install ad blocker on your browser, and this will keep a large number of those ads out of your way. However, sometimes there are still a few from certain sites that will come through adblock and as long as you don’t click on them and instead click them away, you won’t download any viruses.
Easily Handle Tech Connection Conversions
It can seem complicated to convert a HDMI to USB, but it isn’t as hard as you may think. It’s not like plugging your HDMI into your laptop because that isn’t going to work in this case. You may need a conversion software as well as the physical drive. However, there is another option that’s probably easier. You can get a video capture card that will allow you to record and stream content from the source! Now there’s no physical connection needed, and that’s just one example of how to solve this tricky tech issue.
Clean Up Your Computer System
The easiest way that you can clean up your computer system is to use disk cleanup, and you’ll find this preinstalled. This programme is designed to free up disk space, giving you more room for files. Imagine that you are about to put some fresh washing away and you just throw it in a drawer unfolded, and they go everywhere. Disk clean up essentially folds your files and puts them away neatly so that they take up less space on your disk.
We hope that these solutions provide you with some assurance and show you that there are simple solutions that you can take to make tech simple by staying savvy.
