Windows 11 will be coming later in the year. It's a big change from Windows 10 and many of you may not have a computer that is compatible with Windows 11. Go ahead and check it out now to determine if a new computer will be in your future, or if you will just stay on Windows 10. You can visit the upgrade page on the Microsoft website and download a tool to check for compatibility here: www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-11. One of the big requirements is TPM 2.0. You may not know if your computer has a TPM chip. You can check to see if it does. I checked mine out by pressing the windows key plus R and typed in the command tpm.msc. From the screen that loads next you're looking for two things: "The TPM is ready for use" and the version number which needs to be 2.0. See the screenshot where I have circled the things you're looking for. That lets you know that you have the TPM chip and it's the right version number. If you need help checking out your computer ahead of the Windows 11 release, I'm happy to help you do a precheck.-I am,Your Geek! ...

Do you use Google Docs? I know most of you use Microsoft Word. But, I have this problem where I don't like spending money to do something I can do for free. And in some aspects Google Docs works even better than Word. I just typed up a contract and shared with with a colleague. That person is then able to work on the document. I can see where their cursor is. I can clearly see their suggested edits and comments all live while we are both in the document at the same time. It's just so cool. I know. I'm old. There were the old days when we had to type a document on a typewriter then get out a pen and mark it up by hand before re-typing it with changes. I'm so glad I live in today's world. Do you need help using your Google Docs to its fullest? Hit me up!-I am,Your Geek! ...
