First look at Windows 11

First look at Windows 11

Okay, first look at Windows 11. I am always what is classed as an early adopter of technology and new things. Personally, I like discovering new things and playing about with new stuff. I think that why I use windows, it has the ability to more than say, a Mac. Don’t get me wrong, Macs are good at what they do, they just don’t do enough for ME. Anyhow, back to the first look at Windows 11.

The big difference is the start button in the middle of the task bar. It still works the same as before but just has a slightly different look. Your most commonly used apps are displayed there. Access it by clicking on it or by hitting the ‘Windows + S’ keys together.

 

First look at Windows 11
Windows 11 Start Menu

If you click on the ‘all apps’ at the top, this below appears. An alphabetical list of all the apps (programs) appear. So pretty much works the same as before, just a different look. And with this particular release of Windows 11 that can be it’s mantra ‘works the same as before, just a different look’

Windows 11 start menu
Windows 11 start menu – First look at Windows 11

I say this particular release because all of the features have not been rolled out yet. Such as the running Android apps in Windows 11. We won’t see this feature until 2022 probably.

Windows 11 search box

windows 11 search box - First look at Windows 11
windows 11 search box – First look at Windows 11

The search box is still next to the start button but a feature I like is that when you hover over it it shows the last searches you performed. It saves having to type it in again. Computers are supposed to save you time!

Windows 11 folders look

The folder icons as you can see below have been jazed up a bit. Microsoft, like lots of people, go with fashions, and I think they are coming out of there ‘minimalist’ phase. So, we have little pictures on the folders and some colouring in of the Icons. Does it make a difference to the using of the machine? No, but it is a visual difference and some will like it and others hate it.

 

First look at Windows 11

Widgets in Windows 11

By pressing Windows + W on the keyboard you can get the widgets box up. This isn’t Microsofts first attempt at sidebars and widgets. There is a weather app that is useful but an awful lot of click bait. To customise it, click on your account picture which brings up an additional box where you can customise the things that appear there.

First look at Windows 11

Also you can also customise your interests. This takes you to a web page, below, where you can mark interests. I personally hope they expand the interests because there is not much for me here! But hey, I can’t see myself using this feature much.

When it’s all said and done Windows 11 is a free upgrade if you are running windows 10 and your hardware supports it. Check here for more info on that.

First look at Windows 11 – Conclusions

Yeah, it’s going to be a wait and see as all Microsoft releases are. For the average home user, I’d say give it a year for others to iron out the bugs…

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online – One of the pains of the modern world is passwords. They are very necessary, unfortunately! Passwords keep us safe and the more complicated the password the safer the thing it is protecting is. However, there is a huge caveat with this statement. Even the most complicated password is useless if you tell someone.

But I wouldn’t tell anyone my password, I hear you cry! Yes, in normal situations, I.e somebody stops you in the street and says ‘ give me your password’ you wouldn’t.

However, if you go to a website and put in your password, and it’s an unfriendly website, dressed up to look like a legitimate website, a spoof website, you’ve just given your password away.

Social Engineering

If you’ve answered an email saying that you need to go to a company website to reenter your password because you’ve been locked out of your account, are you sure you really want to click on the link in the email? These ways of gaining somebodies password are known as social engineering. It’s getting you to give away your password. There is a good article on the BBC website that talks about Social engineering. These are the most common ways. Another way to gain a password is through a keystroke logger. It’s a little program or virus that makes a note of all your presses on the keyboard and sends it to the enemy or ‘hacker’.

Rarely, it is the classic Hollywood image of the person hunched over a keyboard running a program that tries lots of different combinations to gain access to something.

Another trick is to use social media posts and quizzes. It’s a big subject so it has its own post. See How to NOT give away your personal data on social media.

As a little primer for this beginners guide to Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online, some common terms I have used are browser and address bar. Firstly, let me explain those.

Browser

This is what you view the ‘Internet’ on. It’s a little program that lets you see the internet. Whether it is Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox or one of the others. The logos you click on look a bit like this;

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Address Bar

This is the line on top of your browser where the website address you are currently on appears. You can type in this line, click in it to get the flashing I Beam or cursor, in it. If you know the website address you are looking for you can type in this line and not have to go through a search engine to find it. See the picture below for where it is. It’s the bit that is highlighted in yellow

Also, take note of the little padlock, I’ll mention that later. Knowing these terms, if you don’t already will help you with the words below.

Ok, let’s run through how to avoid scams and help you with Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Spoof websites

When going to a website always check in the address bar that it is the correct website. See the image below for the address bar. If it is different from what you expect to see, don’t go there!

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online – from google images

Here I’ve used pictures from google. The red around the address bar is showing the double ‘N’ in amazon. You wouldn’t get me to go to these websites in real life! For a full explanation see Wiki – Spoof Website. Also, check for the little padlock in the address bar, it means the website has a certain level of encryption. This and the trick below are an example of Phishing. Phishing is basically a fraudulent attempt to gain access to your data.

Spoof emails

This is different from the email approach. Never click on a link in an email. Never. Even if you think it might be genuine. If you are unsure if you have been locked out of your account, type the company web address directly in your browser.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

Above, I’m using an example here from my personal email. It’s an email from, allegedly, PayPal.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

If I hover (but not click) over the ‘check your account’ bit, the address it is going to go to appears in the bottom left corner

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online
Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online

And that is definitely not a PayPal address! As I said, if you are unsure, type the Web address of the company in question into your browser and see if you have login issues. Another thing to look out for is spelling and grammar in the email. ‘Paypal ask to update your account’ is not great English!

Number Crunching

This is the more traditional Hollywood approach. However, it is rarer than the others, because it’s much easier to get someone to give you their password information in one of the above methods. For a more complete definition of hacking, see here – Hacking – Wikipedia.

 

Also, these days there are those annoying captchas. Sometimes it’s pictures and sometimes it is some letters written funny. This is to prove you are human. A computer program has difficulty identifying numbers or pictures. The Captchas may be annoying but they are a useful security feature…

captcha
captcha

 

 

A reason these exist is to stop the number-crunching brigade. It’s very difficult to program an automated system to recognise pictures. Although not impossible, it’s not readily available to most people.

Safe Passwords

The major rule is don’t use the same password for everything. Use Capital and lower case letters and numbers and special characters if you can.

Write them down

Contrary to the advice given a few years ago, the best thing is to write them down in a little book. But don’t keep the book next to your computer! And certainly don’t use post-it notes and put them all over your monitor – If you get burgled you’ll be in trouble. Resetting peoples passwords where they have been forgotten is one of the most common problems people call me about.

Computer Passwords and Being Safe Online – Summary

Mainly, it is just being wary online. Yes, write your complicated passwords down in a little book but don’t keep that next to the computer. If you get one of the emails and you’re not sure, phone the company they purport to be on the phone number on the bill to check. Also, in your pursuit of online safety, it’s worth being aware of scam calls. Read more about How to deal with scam calls here. Let’s be safe out there!

Some of our computer services in more detail

Garden Wifi Installation

Whether you want to work outside, check your phone while sitting in the garden or just keep the kids quiet, having Internet in the garden can be a great thing. Each garden is of course different and there is no one size fits all solution but using the latest technology, we can get wifi in your garden at a reasonable cost! Check out this case study here on How to get Wifi in your Garden, it is an easy thing to do. In fact, it’s so easy I made a video showing you exactly how to do it!

However, if it is not something you have the time to do, give us a call and we can set it up for you.

Upgrades

We perform all sorts of Hardware and Software upgrades for your computer. You might be wondering how to increase your computer speed or asking yourself how can I make my laptop faster? Increasing your computer performance can be achieved with a solid-state drive. Below is a video showing an upgrade to Windows 10 with Solid State Drive Upgrades. By combining an Upgrade to Windows 10 and a Solid State Drive Upgrade we gave the old computer in the video a new lease of life and a huge speed boost!

SSD - Solid State Drive

An old HDD

A New Solid State Hard Drive

An Old Laptop Hard Drive

An Old Desk Top Hard Drive

 

Ok, What are the differences?

The Solid-State Drive is the same size as an old laptop hard drive. A desktop hard drive is larger. A desktop hard drive also spins faster. At 7200 rpm (revolutions per minute) to be exact. A laptop Hard Drive spins at 5400 rpm. A solid-state drive does not spin. It has no moving parts. Think of it as a big memory stick. Also, because it has no moving parts there is less to go wrong with it! Because the old style hard drives rotated, and an arm read the data of it, they are not as quick. And yes, old-style laptop hard drives are slower because they don’t rotate as quickly.

Clean Up and Servicing

Imagine your computer to be a bit like a small child – it doesn’t clean up after itself! Most computers are full of temporary files and need a bit of TLC to keep them running smoothly. Defragmentation, or optimisation as the later version of Windows call it now is important. For more information on this service see Clean Up and Servicing.

Home CCTV and Smart Cameras

Smart home-based security cameras are a quick and cost-effective option for home security. Using your smart device you can turn on all your cameras with a single voice command as you leave the house.Click here for more information, Home CCTV and Smart Cameras to see what’s possible for your home, without monthly charges and just a one-off cost.

Password Issues

Lost your password or the machine won’t accept it? We can help recover it!  My personal advice has always been to write all your passwords down in a book. And hide the book away! Don’t keep it next to the computer. Nobody’s memory is perfect and all the passwords and what they are for is a real headache to remember! However, they are designed to make your information safe and we all have to use them.

Upgrade to Windows 10

As mentioned earlier under upgrades but I thought I’d mention it again as it is in a lot of peoples minds at the moment. If you are running Windows 7, support for it is running out in January 2020. It will still function after this date. What is stopping are security updates. Microsoft recommends updating to Windows 10 to lessen any risk of your system being compromised. A lot of people are wary of Windows 10 for a number of reasons. Most of this is because, as human beings, we don’t like change!  I have written more on this, as it deserved its own article here, Upgrade to Windows 10.

Firstly, wifi can drop out in an extension or anywhere a reinforced steel joist (RSJ) has been used in the construction of the house. There are ways around this and furthermore, we can offer the best solution tailored to you.

Sometimes, Powerline home plugs are the answer. Uniquely, these take the broadband signal through the house electrics with the use of inexpensive home plugs.
