Windows 10 tips
We all know how to use a keyboard and mouse - the traditional way. Type on the keyboard, move the mouse and left click. But Windows has so many other keyboard and mouse features.
If you don't right-click on the mouse you should. The menus available are very useful. However, this column is about keyboard shortcuts that can be very helpful as you use your computer.

Curses, a black screen and curser
We've been getting a lot of calls from computer users who are greeted by their computer with a black screen and a curser. The curser moves when users move a mouse or touchpad, but nothing else displays.
The culprit is a very slow moving Windows update combined with a compatibility issue with a video driver. Generally speaking, the cure to this problem is patience - sometimes lots of patience. I've seen computers take several days to work through this issue. However, once resolved, most computers don't have the issue again.
