Eric Baker logo Hints & tips

My hints & tips are intended to help you get the best from your computer.

They are based mainly around Windows 7 to 10 but many of them are independent of operating system. We have a Windows 10 desktop and a small Win 10 laptop plus Android tablets and phones. All interact pretty well, with email via a shared gmail account (which feeds contact and calendar details to all the devices), Chrome bookmarks which propagate automatically, Dropbox Pro for file synchronisation and OneNote for notes.

Each section of my hints is in the form of a print friendly web page.
