Tech Tip Tuesday – Keeping your electronic screens clean

Tech Tip Tuesday – Keeping your electronic screens clean

Why do we clean our windows and the glasses we wear on our faces?

We all like to see the world clearly, the way it was intended, and know what we are looking at.

For our devices – computers, ipads, tablets, smart phones, kindles, nooks, etc… – we want to keep the screens clean for the same reason we clean our glasses and wash our windows. Fingerprints, dust, sticky kid fingers, germs, facial oils, and more can build up on our devices and we want to get that off so that we can see our screens the way they were intended (not to mention getting rid of some of those germs).

Tech Tip Tuesday: Restart Your Computer Every Day

Tech Tip Tuesday: Restart Your Computer Every Day

I know it can be a pain when you have everything up and running, all your tabs the way you want them in your browser, and you are done working for the day. It is tempting to just let the computer go to sleep as is, then with the slide of your mouse you are all set to begin work again tomorrow.

However, it really is important to reboot your computer once a day… especially if you have a windows operating system. When you restart your computer you allow:

{{1}} Important computer updates to take effect. Many software updates will not go into effect on your computer without a restart, so either shutting down and restarting the next day or doing a system restart can really help make your programs keep running well.

{{2}} Another benefit of a reboot is that it allows your computer to get rid of temporary files that are using up your computer’s resources. Getting rid of these files on restart can help speed your computer up a bit.

{{3}} Restarting regularly also allows your Windows computer to run its diagnostic tests that are only run at startup. It is kind of like getting your labwork done at the doctor once a year – it can identify potentially harmful problems so that you can do something about it before it becomes a BIG problem.

So, today when you are done working for the day, be sure to give your computer the break that it needs. Shut it down or reboot it so it will be running smoothly next time you sit down to work, surf the web, or watch Tobuscus’ new YouTube videos.

Enjoy your day!
