Arlington Meeting Info & Maps       


The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in topics addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

OneDrive Surprises
in Windows 11

Presented by
Dale Harrington
Mile High Computer Resource Organization,
Denver CO

Did you upgrade to Windows 11? Did you buy a new computer with Windows 11? Do you use OneDrive? No? Well, maybe you do. Depending on how you set up Windows 11, OneDrive may be “helping” you back up and even relocate certain folders.

Dale Harrington is the Program Chair and APCUG representative of MiCRO-PC. .

Learn in 30
Explaining Google Drive
on a Chromebook

Presented by Ron Brown
Tech for Seniors

In this video, we will explore the many benefits and features of using Google Drive on your Chromebook. You'll learn how to access Google Drive, how to create and share documents, and how to collaborate with others in real-time. Google Drive is a cloud-based storage solution that is seamlessly integrated with your Chromebook. It allows you to store your files securely and access them from anywhere, at any time. With Google Drive, you can create and edit documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and forms, all from within your Chromebook, other computers and devices. You can also share your files with others and collaborate on them in real-time, making it easy to work together on group projects or presentations. In addition, we'll cover some of the advanced features of Google Drive, such as how to work offline, how to use the mobile app, and how to use third-party apps to extend the functionality of Google Drive.

Ron Brown is a retired Canadian physician, who makes frequent presentations to APCUG computer groups on health and technical topics..

Meeting Location: Carlin Hall Community Center,

Technology & PC Help Desk:
Extended Q&A

Do all your electronics, gadgets, computers, phones, tablets, TV sets, networks, earbuds, and software apps/applications work perfectly? Do you never encounter glitches, freezes, failures? Are you always certain what brand and model product to buy? If so, we'd like to hear about your magic touch.

But if you're like the rest of us, none of that is true for you. And so PATACS' first Wednesday meetings may be just the resource you need for a happier technology life. Just as most PATACS meetings begin with a Q&A session, so does this meeting. But then the meeting continues for nothing but Q&A -- meaning that it's possible to have detailed and in-depth discussions, including real-time research and demonstrations.

Same as all PATACS meetings, these sessions are free and open to the public. So join in, share your questions, problems, and pain -- and perhaps receive answers, solutions, and relief.
