Upcoming class dates: cancelled June 4th , July 2nd Scheduled Tuesday Classes at 12:30pm - 2pm by Jane Quinn
We are here to solve your problems and answer questions you have. In the last session we had a mix of Android smartphones, but were able to answer questions about functions because they are so similar in operation. There may be instances where the operation has a different name for example on a Samsung verses an LG device one is named My Files and the other is named File Manager. But on each this will open the location for you to see your all files and folders. Here you can actually see how much data is on your device , and if you’re running out of space. Some devices can add an extra storage card for more data, but it depends on the model and type of smartphone you have.
I hope to see you in the Smart Phones for Seniors
