You may need to do something right away and can’t get the help you need that hour or even that day. I’ll try to get there as soon as I can. However, we all have situations where it just can’t wait. I want to let you know that there isn’t only one way to surf the Internet, check your email, or type a document on your computer. You must understand — and perhaps this is new learning territory for you than we can cover in depth in our next session — that there are at least 2 ways to skin a cat. Exploring the options can get you out of a jam and open mental pathways. Here are just a few scenarios……
– Comcast or Gmail e-mail: Your account can be set up in the Mail app (or Outlook) but you can also visit Gmail.com or My.xfinity.com to access a fully functional mail system in your web browser.
-You prefer to go on the Internet with Safari or Chrome: What do you do when they don’t work or become corrupted? You need a second browser at your disposal!! This could be Firefox, Edge, Vivaldi, or Brave. Chances are that the second browser is going to work. Get familiar with it.
-Time to type a document — Oh no! Microsoft Word is not working. Did you know that you can type and save basic documents in Text Edit (Mac) and Word Pad (Windows). For letters and basic writing with paragraphs they are just fine.
