Computer skills for retirees

10 Feb

Many of our subscribers who are seniors and bank retirees have an urge to share , with family and friends, on the internet or social media . Rather, for many it has become a compulsion in the modern day world.
Many seniors also wish to learn about basic computer terms like file transfers, converting files from one form to another, Pdfs to Docs and vice versa, blogging, downloading torrents… etc.
However, some time when engaged in their passion, they feel stuck and need help. But computers’ know-how,like an ocean, remains a very real barrier. Age also adds to their problems. And so, fed up they feel like resigning.
This page is to help them.
Please share your problems without any hesitation and we shall learn the solutions together.
And continue to share your passion!

        the link provided does not lead to the Free pdf to word doc converter1.1 .
        Moreover, this just inserts the image file into the word document and then you can edit the document not the pdf.
