Other topics discussed included issues around changing to windows 10. Things to watch are to make sure whether you need a 32 bit version or 64 bit version. Some legacy software may not run correctly on the wrong version. Also a 32 bit machine would not work properly with the 64 bit version. There may be some hardware incompatibilities for example if the graphics card in the computer is too old there may not be an appropriate driver in windows 10 for it to work correctly. Windows 10 will default to internal software graphics in this case but it is of poor resolution and a new card would be needed. Support from Microsoft for windows 7 seven will eventually phase out.
There was some discussion about the use of chromecast and similar hdmi dongles and also the use of virtual private networks (VPNs).
Covenor's Note: Both Claire and Peter have expressed a keen interest in finding out more about VPN. Ian has been contacted and has agreed to present on this topic - perhaps initially to the Techsavies working group? Bev
