Computer Club announces fall classes


Dave Tiefenbach

The Computer Club is currently reviewing its fall class schedule. Instructors are often asked questions such as “how can I…” or “what’s the best way…” and these kinds of questions lend themselves to short courses that we call “Small Bites.” Small Bite courses would last for one 90-minute session. The courses will be listed on the Computer Club calendar for registration.

A list of potential Small Bite classes was developed and was distributed at the April Users Group meeting for input from attendees. If you did not attend the meeting, you can still send your class recommendations to me at [email protected]. The Board of Directors will review the list for future potential classes.

The April Users Group meeting presentation was by Shirley Condit, Pinal County Library Outreach. Her subject was “Searching Techniques for the Library and the Internet.” Shirley also did a presentation on search and research strategies as well as some basic troubleshooting tips for the Library District’s apps.She showed us how to narrow searches to limit the information to what you are looking for.

If you don’t have a library card, you can apply for one at:

If your library card has expired, you can renew it online by completing a new Virtual Library Card application. You will receive a confirmation email that your library card has been renewed.

Pinal County Library District electronic information can be found at:; on Facebook at or by texting PINAL to 42828 to sign up for our new monthly newsletter.

With summer approaching, many residents are beginning to head north. As a result, it was decided to cancel the May Users Group meeting. See you again in the fall.

In Windows 10 you can set your display for night time.

Your display emits blue light—the kind of light you see during the day—which can keep you up at night. To help you get to sleep, turn on a night light and your display will show warmer colors at night that are easier on your eyes.

To schedule night light so it turns on automatically, select Start>Settings>System >Display. Turn on Night Light and then click on Night Light settings.

Click Turn on Now and use the slider to set the color desired, then click Turn off now.

Now set the schedule by turning on Schedule Night Light and set your time. Either select Sunset to Sunrise or click Set Hours to set your own time. Close the Settings screen.
