Make your Windows 10 Home Screen Easier to use

To make your Windows 10 home screen easier to use, try these steps:

1. There are many tiles on this screen that you probably never use.

2. On one of the tiles that you don't use, place your mouse over the tile and right click on it.

3. A new window will come up. Left click on Unpin From Start. The tile will be gone.

4. To add a program that you use a lot, make a tile of it on your home screen.

5. In the list of programs, on the left side of the home screen move your mouse on top of the name of the program and right click on it. A new winodws will come up.

6. Left click on Pin To Start. It will then show up somewhere on your home screen. From here, you can left click it and drag it to wherever you want on the home screen.

Can Lexington become a GIG city?

Report from the Mayor's Office

Join Scott Shapiro, Chief Innovation Officer in the Mayor's Office, at September Tech Night and find out what is being planned for Lexington on the technology front. He is currently involved in 3 innovative projects that will make services better in Lexington.

One of the projects is Gig City and you will learn what work has been done in this area and the obstacles that have to be overcome to achieve that distinction.

Second, the Smart City Projects are well on their way and we will get a progress report plus a chance to ask questions.

The third project is a joint venture with the University of Kentucky and involves using Amazon's Alexa system.

Attend September's Tech Night to get up to date on the happenings and future plans for your city. Guests are always welcome.


Changes to Kroger Community Rewards Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

If you are not participating in Community Rewards, you can sign up to have Kroger donate a portion of every purchase you make to CKCS.

Please call the Kroger Digital Customer Service line at 1-866-221-4141 and request that your name and CKCS (NPO number 11119) are added to the Kroger Community Rewards Program.

You can also do this online with your computer or smart phone at www.kroger.com. Don't forget that the CKCS NPO number is 11119.

You can do this anytime during the year, but right now is best for CKCS.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. Shortly after you enroll, you will see a message on your Kroger purchase receipts, indicating that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS for you. The size of the gift is proportional to the amount of your purchase.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
