Filing can be fun!

by | 2 March 2018 | Education and Learning, Retford

Computer systems are based on filing systems — so often a place to lose things or get into a maze of meaninglessly named files. If you’ve been meaning to ‘tidy-things-up’ or just want to know where everything is, then Clarborough and Welham IT Group’s classes could be just the ticket.

Add to this the related — and vital — topic of backing up your information, then you will see why filing in all of its aspects is such a crucial practice area in most of their classes.
The group also spends time exploring file types together with ways of converting between them — how about changing a text document into a PDF file or a camera JPEG into a TIFF file? Come along and find out!

Bring your own laptop or use one of their Windows 10 machines. The group specialises in so-called OpenSource applications, which means they can provide professional quality ‘Office’, image editing and other applications for free. Sign up to discover a new world!

Spring 2018 classes continue in Clarborough Village Hall (DN22 9LN — just opposite the Kings Arms) weeks commencing 27th February and 23rd April in the usual Tuesday afternoons (1.30pm to 3.00pm) or Wednesday mornings (10.00am to 11.30am) slots. Fees remain at just £15.00 for either five-week block. Classes run through 30 weeks each year — see the IT Group website at or village hall posters for the calendar through to July 2019.
